I don't specialize in Disney Destinations because I took classes or studied books. It’s because I truly have a passion for Disney. I take my own personal vacations to Disney Destinations and have been to them literally dozens of times.


Walt Disney World. A place that automatically brings thoughts of Cinderella’s Castle with fireworks exploding above.


I’ve spent a large amount of time learning about the many resort hotels, the restaurants, the recreation, and of course the parks themselves. Especially since they are all constantly changing! Disney is known for creating memories and making dreams come true. The memories those trips have created will be with me forever.


Minnesota is my home and I’ve enjoyed helping plan Disney vacations for families here in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul since I started in this business over 25 years ago. Over the years that has expanded to include families all over the United States.


A Walt Disney World vacation is not a one-size-fits-all situation. Are you traveling with a large multi-generational group with an age range of 5 to 75? Are you traveling with friends and looking for an “adult Disney” experience? Are you a family of four, taking your children to Walt Disney World for the first time?


For first timers, it’s my job to help you to navigate through the overwhelming amount of information that can be found on the internet. Your friends and relatives have all sorts of advice for you based on their own vacations. But this isn’t their vacation, it’s yours! I can simplify the entire process by narrowing down the Walt Disney World vacation that’s best for your family based on your budget as well as the desires of your family to create magical memories.


For the beloved “Disneyphiles” like me who return to the various Disney Destinations again and again, I can help your next trip be unique from those of years past. Backstage tours, signature dining, a new resort experience, and recreation opportunities will make each trip extraordinary. The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, and Disney’s Blizzard Beach await you in sunny Florida.


I would consider it an honor to help you build the path towards making the Disney dreams come true for you and your family.

My Travel Stories

Walt Disney World in the COVID19 Universe-Part III

When using the restrooms, go to the far end of the bank of toilet stalls if you have that option. Most people go for the stall that's closest to the door so those are the stalls that are used most often. Instead, walk just a few steps more to find a stall towards the back that isn't used as often....Read more.

Attention to detail
Laurie has had attention to every detail of our traveling, things that I never would have thought of Laurie has covered!! She has helped us before, during and after our vacations. We have had experiences we have contacted her for while traveling such as illness that she was able to make phone calls on the home front taking the worry out of details for us. After working with her over the past few years, she knows what things we like to do and puts together travel plans for us that we would not think of!
Thanks Laurie for your professional and fun planning!

Trip of a lifetime
Very thorough. Our trip was seamless! We added 2 days in Vancouver prior to our cruise. Laurie orchestrated a terrific day trip to Victoria. In addition, our hotel was exemplary! We added extra time in Anchorage prior to flying home- Laurie again organized a great hotel and rental car. She willingly helped with solidifying day trips throughout our cruise and land tour. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We will definitely will use Laurie and Travel Leaders to plan our 50th wedding anniversary trip in 2020 to Europe!

Disney Magic!
Laurie was VERY knowledgeable about our Disney World trip. Our first meeting with her we were clueless but laid out what we wanted and she did the work with finding us a great resort and setting up transportation. She explained the park options and explained the dining plans so we could pick what best fit our needs/wants. Also gave us alot of suggestions and explained fast passes and dinner reservations. Something we knew nothing about. We took it upon ourselves to book fast passes and then I had asked Laurie to look them over and she gave suggestions on that. We met with her a couple of times to ease our worries and took it step by step with the planning. We had 10 people on the trip 4 flying from a different state and that was no hassle at all. She was quick to respond to emails. Overall very pleased with the service and knowledge we recieved. I plan to head to Disney World again with my family of four, and I would definitely use Laurie again to do the arrangements.
