Amanda was blessed enough to find a man who loves Disney as much as she does, her husband Alan. Amanda’s engagement was iconic in front of Cinderella’s Castle as their families surprised and captured the moment. Amanda and Alan announced they were expecting their first child, Emmitt, in front of the castle and then on Amanda’s birthday celebration weekend, they announced their family was growing again. Amanda, Alan, Emmitt, Charleston and their entire family (13 total, with her sister’s family, her brother’s family, Amanda’s family and her parents) love all things Disney. They travel together and have experienced all levels of Disney resorts together. Amanda has completed 6 runDisney events, traveled to Disneyland, took to the seas on the Disney Cruise Line and the count continues as she plans her 75th trip to Disney World. Planning is her specialty. Being able to see a family’s dream vacation become a reality, and hearing of their first moment they walked on Main Street or met their favorite character is a dream for her.

Marissa has been going to Disney World since the early 90's - Back when Dixie Landing was still a Disney Resort and Prince John from Robin Hood was a character walking around Magic Kingdom. She remembers going when Cinderella Castle was pink with candles like a birthday cake, for Magic Kingdom's 25th anniversary. Through the years growing up, her family (parents and 3 younger siblings) took trips to Disney World often. Sometimes long planned out trips and some trips that were thrown together a week before. Marissa's parents then became Disney Vacation Club members in 2007. After getting married and having her own kids, Marissa could not wait to start taking them! The joy and amazement in their eyes, never ceases to amaze her. After planning many, many trips of her own and figuring out the ins and outs of dining and fast passes, friends started asking Marissa for help planning their trips. She loves to share her knowledge of Disney and truly enjoys making their reservations for others, so their families can enjoy the magic. Marissa enjoys doing something new and magical with each trip and always making new memories. ``All your dreams can come true, if you have the courage to pursue them`` - Walt Disney
