Desiree Hand
Browns Mills, New Jersey

Hi, there!  My name is Desiree, or as my friends and family call me, Disney Des!  I have two lovely princesses, one in college and one in high school, and the cutest rescue dog ever, Max. When not planning amazing trips for my clients, I work in a special needs school district where I love creating magical moments for my students and colleagues. 

I've been visiting the Walt Disney World Resort since I was a child and my Disney memories tell the story of my life, from childhood through parenthood!  No matter how difficult life can get, visiting reminds me the world is filled with magic, wonder, and possibilities.  And sometimes all you need is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust! 

Aside from years of varied adventures at the Walt Disney World Resort (just have 3 more resorts to visit before I can proudly say I’ve visited them all), my family and I have sailed the high seas on the Disney Cruise Line aboard the Disney Dream and Fantasy, experienced a whole new world when we traveled to the breathtaking Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, and had several visits to the magical place where it all began, the Disneyland Resort!  We are looking forward to saying “Bonjour” as we plan our trip to Disneyland Paris in the near future! 

We’ve made such magical memories and I'd love to share what I’ve learned along the way with you as we create your own special memories!  So whether you are looking for a magical time on a budget, or you are dreaming of a trip with all the “Belles” and whistles, I’ve been there and I’m here to help!  Are you a special needs family? I’ve got lots of experience there too. Want to do a split stay or also visit other Orlando attractions like the Universal Orlando Resorts and SeaWorld?  I’ve got so many tips to share!

One thing is for sure, with a world full of Disney destination possibilities, "there's just no telling how far you’ll go!"
