Melissa lives in Pittsburgh, Pa with her husband and two children. She has been planning vacations with Magical Memory Planners since 2019 and is so excited to share her love of all things Disney. That love began at an early age thanks to her father who grew up in Orlando and has only grown with her!
She has been fortunate to have traveled to Walt Disney World several times as a child and more recently with her own family! Her favorite Disney moment included walking into the Magic Kingdom with her then 2 year old daughter and her father next to her. The three of them took a moment, stared down Main Street and all started crying. Just a few minutes later, her daughter announced to the entire family, by way of personalized mouse ears, that she was going to be a big sister.
As a mother with a special needs child and living with disabilities of her own, she is familiar with the Disability Access Services available at Disney parks as well as Sensory Friendly locations for families to go.
A graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, Melissa is ready to share her love of Disney and help your family have the most magical experience possible. Even before officially joining MMP, Melissa would plan vacations for her family and friends to Disney parks. Her favorite time of year to travel to the park is the end of October through the beginning of November! This way you can experience the park for Halloween and Christmas. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is her family’s favorite Disney activity. The fireworks and parade are so exciting, kid friendly and full of all the Disney Magic everyone dreams of! Stay a few extra days and watch the park transform from a fall festival to Christmas ready.
Melissa’s travel experience doesn’t just include Disney. She loves escaping to Caribbean destinations with her husband. Her all inclusive experience includes Punta Cana, Jamaica and Turks and Caicos!
Whatever your dream vacation, Melissa wants to help make your dreams come true. After all, A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes. So listen to your heart and let the magic in.
