Cindy: Goofy Getaways Senior Team Leader
Hi, I’m Cindy and I love being a travel consultant with Goofy Getaways. I live in Mattawan, Michigan and am married with two grown boys. My love for Disney started many, many years ago and I’m excited to share that I’ve been to Walt Disney World more than 25 times, Disneyland 3 times, Disney Cruise Line 9 times and will be visiting Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii this year. I’ve also enjoyed vacations on Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, as well as destinations all across the United States as well.
In my visits to Disney World I’ve enjoyed staying at a variety of the resorts, ranging from value to deluxe. I have attended some of the special events at Disney, including the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival, the Wine and Harvest Fest at Epcot, the Candlelight Processional at Epcot, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as well as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I have also had the pleasure of cruising on all four of Disney’s ships to both the Eastern and Western Caribbean and am looking forward to a cruise in the fall of 2014 to Hawaii.
My love and knowledge of Disney, and just traveling in general, has been taken to the next level by helping others plan their dream vacation.

I’ve helped many happy clients experience wonderful cruises on Carnival, Royal and Norwegian Cruise Lines, as well as assist families in finding an all-inclusive resort to enjoy while on vacation and helping newlyweds find that extra special one of a kind destination for their honeymoon as well.

Heather: Goofy Getaways Team Leader
Hi! I’m Heather… I’m a former journalist, public relations specialist and attorney, so it’s no surprise I’m a travel storyteller as well. There’s almost nothing I love more than packing my bags and hitting the road, usually with my niece and nephew in tow!
Walt Disney was one of the greatest storytellers in the world. He created worlds which we all want to walk through… and you can… by heading to one of the Disney Destinations. From Walt Disney World to the Cruises, Aulani, Toyko Disney and Adventures by Disney, there is a destination for you! I personally love Epcot, where you can walk around the world in one afternoon. Have lunch in Paris, take a float in Mexico, grab a crepe in Paris and finish with drinks in a British Pub! Sounds like the perfect day to me.
My bucket list includes visiting all 50 states, 7 continents and 14 Wonders of the World. Only 3 states… 4 continents… and 10 Wonders left to go! Yes, London is truly majestic, there’s nothing like a quiet day on the Carolina coast and EVERYONE should walk the Great Wall once in their life.
In my free time, I love planning events and trips… I scourge dozens of travel sources to make sure I have the best trip possible planned. I’ll do the same for you, at NO COST to you! Just drop me an email at or call me at (989) 670-4343! Together we’ll put together your next venture… I’m sure you’ll have a blast!
Remember… “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” Or as Saint Augustine said, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.”

Hope: Goofy Getaways Travel Specialist
Hi there! My name is Hope! I am a military wife and mother of two. I currently live in Indianapolis, but we definitely move off and on.
Although we are pretty far from Disney, we are actually annual passholders and frequent the parks many times a year. I have been visiting Disney World yearly since I was around 5 years old, so I am very familiar with the parks and resorts.
Being a military wife, I am also very very knowledgeable with the Disney Military Salute, and other military discounts available within the travel industry. My family enjoys and often attends the different holiday parties held at the parks, we attend Mickey’s Christmas Party every single year. We take a two week trip every December, where we travel to Universal Studios and Disney World.
I always say, there is absolutely nothing that compares to the look on your childs face when you see them walk into a Disney park. My kids have gone so many times, and that look never goes away, the excitement is never lost, and the pure joy never fades.
Being military we also do a lot of other travel. We just got back from a two week trip to Ireland which was amazing! I am excited to help with not only Disney travel, but all other travel as well! Im so happy to be a part of the Goofy Getaways family, and I look forward to growing in knowledge and experience to make me the best I can be!

I can help you plan the right vacation for your family! Our trips to the Disneyland Resort are numerous and frequent. My kids still cry when it’s time to go home, even though they know we will be back next weekend!
I often plan trips around RunDisney events. I know what goes into planning for the athlete and their family! I am happy to help.
I have a love and knowledge of Disney that runs deep and is extensive. I would be honored if you allowed me to help you plan your families dream Disney vacation!

Kristin: Goofy Getaways Travel Specialist
Hi! I’m Kristin. I’ve been going on Disney vacations since I was six years old, and even today, every trip still feels just as magical as the very first time.
By day, I work in college sports. It’s a fast-paced environment where it’s important to be knowledegable, quick-thinking and focused. By night, I bring that same approach to planning Disney experiences. I’ve been doing it for myself, family and friends for years, and now I’d like to help you plan your getaway too–absolutely free of charge.
Disney has so much to offer, and it’s hard to know where to start. There are parks on three different continents, cruises, special travel experiences all over the world, and more. That’s where I come in. Whether you want a fun family vacation at Disneyland, zip-lining in Costa Rica or a few days of laid-back relaxation in a Hawaiian paradise, Disney has it all–and I’ve got you covered. Wherever you choose to go, planning your dream Disney trip should be stress-free, so I tackle all the details for you. All you have to do is enjoy your hard-earned vacation.
I’ve stayed at all types of Disney properties on both coasts, from value hotels such as Walt Disney World’s All-Star resorts to deluxe hotels like the Polynesian Village Resort and Disneyland’s Grand Californian, and I will work one-on-one with you to design your customized dream vacation at any budget.

Laura: Goofy Getaways Travel Specialist
Hi! My name is Laura, and I am incredibly happy to be part of the Goofy Getaways team. I live in the Chicago area (Glenview) with my husband and dog. At a young age, I was exposed to the magic of Disneyland, and I have never looked back. My passion in life is planning vacations, and I’d love to use my expertise and industry knowledge to help you plan your next adventure.
As for me, you can say that I have been bitten by the wanderlust bug. During the day, I’m an attorney, but at night and on the weekends, you can find me reading Disney blogs, watching travel videos, or perusing a new travel guide. I have traveled all over the United States (38 out of 50 states so far!) and around the world (most recently to Italy and Thailand & Cambodia – check that off my bucket list!). In the past five years, I have been to Disney World three times and am currently planning my first trip as an adult to Disneyland (October 2016) and my next trip to Disney World (February 2017). I have also been on 6 cruises to various destinations in the Western Hemisphere (including a partial transit of the Panama Canal and an unforgettable journey to Alaska). Let me use my experience to YOUR advantage!
So, no matter what you are planning – whether it is a trip to Orlando to see the Magic Kingdom, an Adventures by Disney voyage to Italy, or a bucket list trip to Japan to see Tokyo DisneySea – I can give you all the tips and advice that you need to have a fantastic time. And, yes, I can even help you with travel plans that are not related to Disney, so don’t be afraid to ask. I have experience with many of the major cruise lines and Universal. Your life is busy enough – instead of being stressed about what dining reservation to make, what attraction you need to book, or whether you are getting the most out of your time and money, leave the planning to me!
You do not need an unlimited supply of pixie dust to have a magical vacation – all you need to do is reach out to me at for a no obligation, no pressure, completely free quote, and you will be on your way to having the time of your life. You can also find me on Facebook.
