Robin Bratton

Robin Bratton

Vacation Planner

Robin’s first trip to the Magic Kingdom was at ten years old and she has been hooked on the magic ever since. So much so, that she and her husband went there for their honeymoon (which wasn’t as common is 1985 as it is now). She loved all things Disney as a child, especially on Sunday nights when the Wonderful World of Disney was on television and she watched with her family. Robin has raised her own children (now grown) on Disney and now they have a Disney loving granddaughter. What has always impressed Robin is the customer service that is provided to each person at the Disney destinations. That is their main interest – happy customer = return customer. Many other companies go there to see their amazing hospitality and learn their second to none customer service philosophy. Robin wants to serve her clients and future clients with that same hospitality and is looking forward to helping others get to their magical vacation to the happiest plan on earth.
