Name: Kelly Young

Where are you from?  I am from Carmel, Indiana.

First memory of Disney?  I remember my parents taking my siblings and I to Walt Disney World when I was five years old. They believed in the importance of sharing the magic that is Disney with their children. I remember stepping into a new world where anything was possible. I was able to feel like I was part of Peter Pan’s adventures, flying with Dumbo, and helping Snow White escape the Evil Queen.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Disney allows you escape the worries of the real world and instead feel like you can do anything. The detail that is put into each of the parks is unmatched by any other theme park. Disney welcomes and offers experiences for every one of all walks of life. Disney allows each guest to feel like they are part of the Disney story.

Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World is my favorite Disney Destination because it holds so much nostalgia for me and there are limitless experiences for me to explore each time I visit. I can travel the world at EPCOT, take an African safari at the Animal Kingdom, or feel utter happiness in meeting my childhood idols. Walt Disney World is the heart of all Disney Destinations and truly is the Happiest Place on Earth.

Favorite Disney Character and why?  Mickey Mouse is my favorite character because he is the most iconic Disney Character. In the words of the brilliant Walt Disney, “ I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing-That it all started with a mouse.” Every time I see or meet Mickey at one of the Disney Destinations, I am flooded with complete joy and warmth.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  My favorite Disney Attraction is Expedition Everest. The thrill and surprises of the ride excites me more every time I ride it. The energy you share with the other guests while on the ride is unlike the energy of any other ride. Not only is it exhilarating, but also it offers stunning views of the Animal Kingdom Park. Don’t forget to smile for your picture at the bottom of the hill.

Favorite Disney Resort and why? My favorite Disney Resort is Coronado Springs. Not only does it hold a special place in my heart because it is where my husband and I stayed for our Honeymoon, but also there are many wonderful features and amenities. The décor of Spanish Colonial Mexico offers bright colors and unforgettable views. The pools offer both charm and excitement and the variety of restaurants offer a range of menu selections for both adventurous and picky eaters.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  My favorite Disney Restaurant is Le Cellier Steakhouse located below the Chateau in the Canada Pavilion in EPCOT. This restaurant is designed in a way to appear that you have descended into a Canadian wine cellar complete with wooden tables, beautiful archways, and candles. Although getting a reservation here can be difficult, the steak and seafood options are some of the best I have ever eaten. You will enjoy the assortment of bread that accompanies your meal.

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  Be Our Guest in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom is my favorite Quick Service Restaurant. The ambience is lovely and appeals to both adults and children. The menu has a great variety of food that is not offered anywhere else in the park. Don’t forget to try the grey stuff, its delicious!

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? I would like to have dinner with Elliot from Pete’s Dragon because he has always been one of my favorite characters and is fun-loving and adorable, Pluto because he is cheerful and adventurous, and Jiminy Cricket because he is wise, kind, and has a big heart.

Favorite Disney snack and why? My favorite Disney snack is a Premium Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Not only is the chocolate and ice cream delicious, but also it always cools me down on a humid day at a Disney Theme Park.

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  The 1961 animated version of 101 Dalmatians. I am a huge dog lover and just like in real life, I love how the puppies have their own unique personalities. Also, there are cameos of many of the characters from my second favorite Disney movie, Lady and the Tramp.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  Baby Mine from Dumbo, When You Wish Upon a Star from Pinocchio, and Candle on the Water from Pete’s Dragon are three of my absolute favorite Disney songs. I am drawn to beautiful ballads that I can sing along with when I am driving or doing work around the house.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? I am most similar to Wendy Darling from Peter Pan. Like Wendy, I am imaginative, dreamy, adventurous, chatty, romantic, mature, spirited, and motherly.

If you could be one Disney character for a day who would it be and why? I would want to be Minnie Mouse. She brings so much joy to children and adults and not to mention is extremely fashionable!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would want to be a Character Performer in the parades and shows at the Magic Kingdom. I have a background in dance and love to perform. The costumes are absolutely stunning and the colors are beautiful. It would be a lot of fun making audiences smile and enjoy feeling the magic of Disney.

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? Everyone deserves to feel the excitement that is Disney and it makes me extremely happy to be able to help create lasting memories filled with joy for families that are looking to book their dream Disney vacations.

Why should I book my vacation with you? Nothing makes me happier then sharing my love and knowledge of Disney with others. No matter your budget or the type of vacation you are planning, it would be my pleasure to help ensure that all your needs are met. I will work endlessly to answer all your questions and provide you with the best tips and advice so that you have the most MAGICAL vacation imaginable.
