Starting in 2018
Melinda Garbacz lives in South Georgia with her husband and two daughters. She has been planning vacations with Magical Memory Planners since 2018. She grew up in West Virginia, but has traveled the country with her husband who is a retired United States Marine.
I am a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge and have been planning vacations for family and friends for many years. I have planned numerous vacations to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and Disneyland/California Adventure in Southern California.
My favorite part of Disney in Southern California is Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure. There’s nothing like getting to ride Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree and eating dinner at Flo’s V8 Café! What can I say, the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is nothing short of unbelievable. People often ask me which park is my favorite and I always reply, “all of them!”
Being former military, I have experience with both Disney military ticket and room discounts.
Over the years I have been blessed to experience a wide variety of dining options and special events both inside and outside of the parks.
These include but are not limited to Disney’s PCH Grill, Café Orleans, Carnation Café, Chef Mickey’s, ‘Ohana, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays.
I have also completed my training to be a Certified Autism Travel Professional. You can view my credentials as well.
Aside from Disney my family has traveled to many destinations all across the country. Driving two times cross-county, we have visited numerous national parks, theme parks, and eclectic roadside attractions along the famous Route 66. I love to travel and learn and am excited to help you plan your next magical vacation, whether it be to Disney or another adventurous destination.

“Melinda planned our latest Disney Trip for us and I cannot recommend her enough! This was our first trip since Covid and she made sure everything was perfect! From setting up transportation to and from the airport to getting the exact dining reservations we wanted she did it all! Book with her for your next vacation!”
Melinda was so wonderful and patient through the whole trip planning process. She made planning a breeze and answered all my silly questions I would definitely recommend her and use her again for future trips.
If you’re looking for someone to make all your dreams come true, Melinda is your girl! She made my 30th birthday trip so magical. How many people can say that their travel agent showed up to join them at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! She worked hard to make sure we got all of our dining when we hit a few bumps in the road and was readily available on FastPass Day and every other time we had even the silliest question. I can’t wait to book with her again in a few months!
Just got home from one of the most magical vacations I’ve ever taken. Melinda made sure every detail was just right for our visit and made planning so simple. We spent close to a year planning this trip and she has helped me every step of the way, from hotel choice to dining reservations and FastPasses. She even helped me get a special birthday surprise worked out for my sister. Now I just get to figure out where she’s sending me next! Life is short. Take the trip, buy the ears, eat the snacks but most of all spend it with the ones you love!
Melinda is incredible! She helped us book our trip in December and it was beyond spectacular. She worked hard to make our every wish come true, from dining, to FastPass, etc. You can see the joy she gets from making magic happen. I can’t wait to book with Melinda again! Thank you so much!
