Name: Jodi Starnes

Where are you from?  Greenville, SC

First memory of Disney?  I was 5 years old when I first visited Disney World with my family.  I remember being so scared to ride Space Mountain and Haunted Mansion, but I ended up loving them both!  I also remember being amazed by the monorail system.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes?  There are many different ways Disney is magical, but for me the magic is the happiness it brings to my family every time we visit a Disney Destination.  We share in the joy of being together with no cares or worries and just wonder, laughter and pure excitement.

Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World is my favorite Disney destination.  My family has made so many memories over the years in Disney World, and I love the feeling of nostalgia I have every time we visit.

Favorite Disney Character and why?  My favorite Disney character is Minnie Mouse because she is sweet, stylish and fun.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  This is a hard one for me to answer, but I would have to say Soarin in Epcot.  I love the feeling of flying over the world and experiencing the sights and sounds around me.

Favorite Disney Resort and why?  This is an easy one for me to answer.  The Polynesian is my favorite resort in Disney World.  I love the theming, the luscious grounds, the pools, the location, the dining options and just the feeling of home when we stay there.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  My family really enjoys eating at ‘Ohana for dinner.  The food is scrumptious and plentiful, and I love the atmosphere.  The best part of the meal is the bread pudding for dessert!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Be Our Guest is my favorite quick service restaurant.  I love eating in Beast’s Castle and the food  (especially the dessert) is yummy.

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why?  I would like to have dinner with Anastasia, Drizella , and Dorrie.  They would be so funny and would keep me entertained.

Favorite Disney snack and why? A warm cinnamon roll with LeFou’s Brew from Gaston’s Tavern is the perfect mid-morning snack while in Magic Kingdom.

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  Pete’s Dragon is my favorite classic Disney movie.  I watched it over and over again as a child.  My favorite current Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  “When Will My Life Begin” from Tangled, “Belle” from Beauty and the Beast, and “Part of your World” from The Little Mermaid are three of my favorite Disney songs from three of my favorite Disney movies.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why?  I think I am most like Anna from Frozen.  I am caring, bubbly and determined, and I am very loyal to my loved ones.

If you could be one Disney character for a day who would it be and why?  I think it would be pretty neat to be Tinkerbell.  Not only does she get to be a part of the Festival of Fantasy Parade, but she also gets to fly over the Magic Kingdom on a zip line.

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why?  I would work as a performer in the Festival of the Lion King in Animal Kingdom.  I just love the music and dancing in that show, and I think it would be fun to be a part of it. It is also nice and cool in the theater, so that’s a plus!

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? Sharing my knowledge and love for Disney is one of the best parts of being a Disney Travel Agent.  I love working with families to help them plan their magical vacations.
