Today the spotlight shines on Sarah Phillips from Missouri!

Name: Sarah Phillips

Where are you from?  I was born outside of Atlanta, Georgia. After graduating from college, I moved out to Kansas City, Missouri.

First memory of Disney?  My very first memory of Disney is actually one of my very first memories ever. My parents had taken me to EPCOT when I was maybe 5 and I remember sticking my head through the railings of a bridge over one of the little waterways. There was a Friendship boat moving through the water and I just remember being so fascinated by it.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? Disney to me is a perfect moment in time when the outside world can’t touch you and where magical moments happen all of the time. Families slow down and are able to spend valuable time enjoying one another.

Favorite Disney destination and why? My big answer is Walt Disney World but more specifically it’s the Magic Kingdom. I love the attractions and the characters with all my heart. But, I think I could spend a whole day just wandering around the park admiring all of the little details the Imagineers thoughtfully put in for all of us to enjoy.

Magic Kingdom

Favorite Disney Character and why?  This one is hard! I have a special place in my heart for both Cinderella and Rapunzel. They both embody a sense of positivity in the face of adversity that I really admire.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why?  Splash Mountain! I could ride it continuously for hours. There is so much thought and detail put into this attraction. It is the perfect balance of Disney’s mastery of storytelling and also giving you a big thrill at the end.

Favorite Disney Resort and why? Animal Kingdom Lodge is incredibly beautiful. The lobby and common areas are full of beautiful pieces of African artwork. Their table service restaurants Jiko and Sanaa have award winning dining. Where else can you wake up and see a giraffe from your bedroom window!

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why?  Every vacation to Walt Disney World means a trip to ‘Ohana at the Polynesian Village Resort. Everyone in the restaurant (even you) are considered “cousins” and treated like family. There is Hawaiian entertainment during the meal and if you time it just right, you can catch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from a table next the window. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a close second!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why?  I love going to Be Our Guest for their quick service meal at lunch. The quality of the food is the best in the park as far as quick service is considered and who wouldn’t want to eat in the Beast’s castle!

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? I always vote for a good comedy act. Chip and Dale are always hilarious. I even think I got a marriage proposal from Dale once. The Tremaine sisters, Anastasia and Drizella, always have me in stitches too!

Favorite Disney snack and why? I’m not sure if this counts, but the “No Way Jose Sundae” at Beaches and Cream is to die for. Hot fudge and peanut buttery goodness…yum!

Favorite Disney Movie and why?  That’s a tough one but I’m going to say Mary Poppins. She is more than practically perfect in my book. The music is amazing and the storyline is so sweet.

3 Favorite Disney Songs and why?  A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes (Cinderella), A Spoonful of Sugar (Mary Poppins), Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah (Song of the South and Splash Mountain). They all are about finding the sunny sides of life even when things seem hard

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Ms. Incredible…haha. I can really relate to her dealing with the ups and downs of daily family life and still finding the love in it all.

If you could be one Disney character for a day who would it be and why? Mary Poppins for sure! I would love to snap my fingers and my house is clean and sing one song and my kiddos are asleep.  She is full of unexplained magic!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I think I would like to be a VIP Tour Guide. It would be so great to share my knowledge with families about the parks and also be able to take them onto all of the rides with practically no waits! A day full of sprinkling pixie dust on a family seems wonderful.

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? I love sharing with my clients all of the tips and tricks I have learned along the way. Tips to make their vacation go smoother, tricks to maximize park time, and helpful hints to making the vacation so much more magical!
