Starting in 2013
Since 2013, Being a travel specialist with Magical Memory Planners has brought joy and excitement into my life. From an early age; travel was something I truly enjoyed doing; whether it was experiencing Walt Disney World, jumping on a cruise ship or hiking in Alaska – exploring new places has brought light to my life. Little did I know that this pleasure would divert my career ambitions; As an event and meeting planner in my former life; attention to detail is engrained in my work. Therefore, helping families navigate their vacation stress is what I do best. I take pleasure in knowing that the families I help will enjoy every moment of their vacations; while I handle the little details, they may not have even given thought to and offering them tips and tricks to make their travel the best experience possible.
In 2023, I proudly made the leap to being a full-time travel agent allowing me more time to dedicate to my clients and experiencing all that life has to offer. I presently live in Gilbertsville, PA with my husband, son and my labradoodle Max.
I would love the opportunity to help plan a worry-free vacation for your family, feel free to contact me at [email protected].

Testimonials for Carla
Highly recommended. Carla was responsive and helped make the trip a success. Would easily use her services again.
We had an amazing trip to Disney this past December, and we couldn’t have done it without Carla! It was no easy task managing and booking rooms, dining, experiences, and ground transportation to and from the airport for 11 people (yes, I said 11!) ages 5 to 75 with various levels of accommodations needed. Carla took care of everything. She managed to book every single thing we wanted and needed for our family vacation. Magic! I would recommend Carla to anyone planning a Disney trip or any other vacation. She made everything easy and stress free for us. I can’t thank her enough!
Carla was absolutely the best from start to finish!! She even got me coveted grinch breakfast tickets!! Everything ran so smoothly having her in my corner!
Carla did an amazing job planning our trip for us! Having not flown or gone on a cruise ship for over 20 years my anxiety was high! Carly made it so easy and seamless! She took care of every aspect from scheduling cars to go to the airport, getting us TSA checks, accommodations, suggestions for when and where to visit, and so many other things I would never have thought of! She obviously has extensive experience traveling which translates well to her ability to work with other on their trips. I appreciated her attention to detail and making sure we were well within budget. I would definitely recommend Carla and will use her to plan our next trip!
Carla helped our family book a cruise to the Bahamas. She was fantastic to work with and had great communication. (She) had great tips and thoughtful suggestions that helped make our trip really fantastic.
Carla did a great job planning our Mom’s Cruise to the Bahamas! The transportation transfers were super comfortable and on time. We never waited. The trip was fully explained to us prior with all the information we needed to have a great trip. She is very knowledgeable and so friendly and fun! You will love her!
Carla is very efficient and through. She has a wealth of knowledge and recommendations. She makes planning your vacation a breeze!
Carla planned my most recent vacation with a crew of 20+ people from all over the country, most not knowing one another. She introduced us and we had all made friends within days! Only a great agent with a super personality could do that. Carla has the best energy, positive, excited and prepared always. Carla is a thoughtful person and gave us lots of tips ahead of time and while on the cruise. I had a typo in my dining reservation time and she stopped what she was doing to take us to guest services to straighten it out. Only Carla could have pulled off a trip as big as this one with so many people who did not know one another. My mom and I had a great time!!
Carla is well organized and on top of the details. For the trips I’ve arranged with her, I never felt like I was missing out on something.
Carla planned a cruise trip for a ladies weekend. She did a great job with the planning, kept us up to date with cost and information regarding the trip.
Carla was awesome. She thought of everything, and the trip was just what I needed. Everything was well thought out and very organized.
Carla is AMAZING to work with. She has booked all of our Disney trips in the past 10 years and our upcoming Disney Cruise. I can’t recommend her highly enough. She is always available and has the answers. It is so nice to have someone you can trust looking out for you.
I worked with Carla from start to finish on the booking of my first ever Disney Cruise (and first ever Cruise) for my family. We had an amazing experience, all the more amazing given I had Carla's knowledge, support, and experience the entire way. I know I was probably a handful as I had never had a trip like this, nor had I ever spent this much money on a vacation in my life. But Carla took it all in stride. ...[Read more] about Pakpour Family
Magical Memory Planners are amazing! Carla booked an unforgettable Disney World vacation for us! She had the inside scoop for us on everything! She helped with dining suggestions and fast pass info, based on what we said we like to do! I highly recommend Carla and MMP! They go above and beyond!
Our first interaction with Magical Memory Planners was for a cruise to Alaska. We had only done one short cruise before this and were a little hesitant but after talking with Carla, she reassured us it would be a different experience than before and she was 100% correct ! With her knowledge of the industry and her firsthand experiences to guide us, we were thrilled with our room locations on board ship as well as the vessel itself. ...[Read more] about P.B.
We’ve used MMP the last three years to take trips to WDW, Disneyland Resort, and to Aulani. Allison and Carla made the entire process super easy, they are both extremely knowledgeable and provided expert-level tips on things to do and places to see, and helped us make our family experiences both memorable and amazing. Highly recommended using MMP when planning your next vacation.
We planned our first ever Disney Trip with Carla in 2019. She is knowledgeable, responsive and honest. She went above and beyond to assure our trip was thoroughly planned and that we were prepared for all of the opportunities, challenges and logistics involved. She is a great person and she was fun to work with.
As a skilled world traveler, I used to book all my vacations on my own because I knew what I was doing. Once Carla helped me with a quick trip a few years ago, I've had her handle all my trips. She takes care of every little detail. Now I can plan my trips through Carla without having to worry about anything which saves me so much time and worry, and it doesn't cost me a thing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
What a wonderful cruise to the Bahamas with no worries at all! Carla did a amazing job setting everything up for us. I can't thank her enough for making my first cruise a memorable one. Looking forward to a another great moms weekend get away, Thanks again Carla!
We can't wait to go on our next cruise you booked for us! Last one was fabulous and it was so awesome that you had all kinds of info to make it such a Magical Memory!
A group of amazing agents. I’ve worked with Allison and Carla and they’re both wonderful. From family Disney vacation to a mom only cruise, everything was so organized down to the last detail. They do all the planning so vacations are always stress free !!
Carla is AMAZING! We sailed on a Bahamas Cruise and worried about absolutely nothing! Carla had every detail covered, so there was no need to waste any time figuring out transportation to/from airport or port. This made for a very relaxing trip and we were always in good hands! I am looking forward to my next trip.
