I am a true kid at heart when it comes to Disney! All of the magic, excitement, smiles and memories that it can bring has created my desire to become a Disney Travel Agent/Trip Planner.

I’m Kelly Siglinger and my motto is “Life’s too short, Take the Trip! My love for Disney started when my family visited Magic Kingdom for the first time when I was 8 years old in 1987. I can remember walking through the gates with such awe and amazement! 30+ years later and I still get that feeling every time I walk down Main Street and see Cinderella’s Castle! I grew up in Florida and spent most weekends at one of the Disney World parks and know them like the back of my hand. I live in Mooresville NC with my husband and our two sons. We love all things Disney and Universal and love to travel. I look forward to helping you plan the most magical vacation you’ve ever dreamed of!!

I am passionate about making trips for families a time of enjoyment and efficiency! With four kids, I know how important it is for everyone, parents included, to have fun and experience the magic.
