We’re proud to have the best Disney Travel agents in the world as part of our MickeyTravels team and this will allow you to get to know them even better. Today the spotlight shines on Andrea Garton from North Carolina!

Name: Andrea Garton

Where are you from?  I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY but I currently reside with my husband in Winston-Salem, NC.

First memory of Disney?  Toon Town! I took my first trip at the age of 2 years old and I loved those little houses – especially how Minnie’s house had a cake baking in the oven!

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? The Magic of Disney is in all of the details. So much care and attention is given to how everything is built and created to work in unison. From the phenomenal Cast Members, to the immersive attractions and beyond, the seamlessness of it all removes you from reality and transports you into fantasy.

Favorite Disney destination and why? Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. There is nothing like the feeling of walking down Main Street, towards the beautiful castle. It makes me feel like a little kid all over again and I cannot wait to share the experience with my own kids someday.

Favorite Disney Character and why?  I have always loved Tinkerbell! She’s sweet and loyal but can be sassy when she wants to be!

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  Space Mountain. I love being in the dark. Not knowing/seeing when the next turn or drop is going to come is all the more exhilarating!

Favorite Disney Resort and why? Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. The coziness of the interior and the relaxed, natural surroundings of the exterior make me instantly unwind after a fun-filled day.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  Citricos at the Grand Floridian Resort. They have a phenomenal wine list, delicious desserts and I literally dream about their red-wine braised short ribs!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Everything Pop! Shopping and Dining at Pop Century Resort will always have a place in my heart! I worked there during my first Disney College Program and have to say that I still thoroughly enjoy all the options they have available!

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? Mushu, Vanellope von Schweetz, and Olaf! All of these characters make me laugh in their respective movies and I have to imagine they’d be pretty hilarious to chat with!

Favorite Disney snack and why? Mickey Ice Cream Bars! No day at the park is complete without this delicious cool down treat! It’s best enjoyed while waiting for the parade to start!

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  This is such a HARD question! With so many amazing movies over the decades I think I have a favorite one from each! I guess my all-time favorite will forever be Cinderella. It’s the movie that introduced me to Disney and got me hooked!

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  Go the Distance from Hercules, Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid, and Make a Man Out of You from Mulan. They’re all just so much fun to sing along with!

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Anna from Frozen. She’s loyal, adventurous, kind, and undeniably true to herself.

If you could be one Disney character for a day who would it be and why? I’d love to be Ariel for a day so I could breathe underwater, explore the ocean and of course, hang out with Sebastian and Flounder!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would love to “be friends with” a character. Having a chance to bring to life a beloved character and put smiles on the faces of young and old alike would be an incredible way to spend each day!

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? The best part about being a MickeyTravels agent is getting to share my love of Disney with others. Helping families make unforgettable memories is so rewarding. I also get to learn so many fun and interesting new things every day about the places that I truly cherish.

Why should I book my vacation with you? Not only have I been a Walt Disney World Cast Member, but I’m also an event planner by trade. My love for detailed execution and planning, combined with my love of Disney will insure that your Disney vacation is *Magical* from start to finish!
