Name: Emily Steinkamp

Where are you from?  Mechanincsburg, PA

First memory of Disney?  My mom saved up for a long time in order to take my three sisters and I to the parks. We traveled down with my aunt, as my dad wasn’t much of a traveler and it was the best vacation we ever had.  My family was on a tight budget so vacations didn’t happen really ever, so as you can imagine this was a magical surprise.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? You get to escape realities of life- the sights and sounds, make it my happy place.  I can’t help but smile when thinking about Disney.

Favorite Disney destination and why? Disney World is by far my favorite for the fact you never take the same trip twice.  There is so much to see and do your vacation itineraries are endless!

Favorite Disney Character and why?  Ariel-  I like Ariel because of the music and undersea adventures that she has within the movie.  I also love her new ride in Fantasyland.

Little Mermaid

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  Splash Mountain is my favorite!  I realize the movie has some negative connotations, but when I was younger my dad always read a book about Brer Rabbit that the scenes bring back memories of my childhood.  Also, the theming and music of the attraction keeps you entertained from start to finish!

Favorite Disney Resort and why?  My goal is to stay at them all!  But right now, my favorite is Wilderness Lodge.  We took my son for his first birthday and I remember stepping into the grand lobby- seeing the tepee hanging from the ceiling, the expansive fireplace and hearing the water was so tranquil.  Plus, the grounds around the resort makes you feel you are among the western forests though you are in sunny Florida.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  Chef Mickey’s, mainly for the memories.  I can recall nearly every Disney vacation I have taken; Chef Mickey’s was a stop on our dining tour.  It’s a great opportunity to get pictures with the classic characters of Disney and there are plenty of food options for even the pickiest eater.

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Flametree BBQ at Animal Kingdom is wonderful!  The BBQ is delicious and you can always find a seat amongst the trees for a shady place to cool off and enjoy a meal.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why?   Goofy, Chip and Dale for I feel they would make the entire meal fun with lots of laughs!

Favorite Disney snack and why?  Who doesn’t love the traditional Dole Whip on a hot summer day.

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  Beauty and the Beast, the classic.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  There are too many to pick, in fact I have the album of the Disney World attractions downloaded on my phone and my kids and I always listen to it on long car rides to bring the Disney magic home.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why?  I would have to say I am most like Snow White, I need to have things in order at home.

If you could be one Disney character for a day who would it be and why?  I would want to be Belle- who doesn’t want an enchanted castle to explore?

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why?  Disney World- notice a trend here?  This is truly home for me, thinking about and being in Disney makes me so happy.  As your agent, I would love to share my tips for navigating this massive park and share all the wonderful options to your family.

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent?  Gosh where do I begin?  As a mom of two, this gives me time for something I enjoy.  I love to find discounts for my clients, get them the reservations they are yearning to make their trip magical and the opportunity to make the business my own.  It truly has been a blessing to work for MickeyTravels- the owners are amazing and have made this experience all I had imagined.

Why should I book my vacation with you?  Type A is my middle name, or at least it should be!  Details are my strength, so as your personal agent it is my goal to ensure all aspects of your trip are covered by sending you tips, reminders and of course helping you as much or as little as you like.  Helping others build out a Disney itinerary is just as much fun as if it were my own. It truly would be an honor to support you in your plans and the best part all of my services are free!
