Owner/Senior Travel Advisor


Katy, TX

I began my love for Disney as a child traveling to Walt Disney World on our annual family holiday. As an adult I have continued traveling to various Disney and Universal parks on a regular basis with my own family. I can help plan any size vacation from tickets to a park or preparing a complete vacation itinerary including lodging, dining, tickets, and special experiences. I have taken the time to become a CLIA accredited cruise counsellor so that I have the best knowledge possible to help clients experience amazing voyages. I am also passionate about luxury travel on land and sea! Whether cruising or exploring tropical all-inclusive resorts, I enjoy helping clients find the magical moments that will make each vacation a once in a lifetime opportunity.

As a Florida native, I have enjoyed the theme parks and incredible experiences offered for over 20 years. I have made it my mission to learn about these parks, stay up to date on all things Disney, and go to the parks as often as I can, so that I can relay that much needed information to my clients. From finding the perfect resort, to snagging that coveted dining reservation, to suggesting foods and experiences. I love it all! As a mama of four kiddos, I can help you prepare for Disney with kids and also adult only trips, if you just want to get away.

When I am not planning trips to Disney, or dreaming about Disney, I am hanging with my kiddos and my amazing husband. We love Jesus, vacations, family game night, food, and movie nights. We love to spend the summer supporting my husband in his BBQ competitions around central Iowa.

I have recently joined the Fairy Godmother Travel team and am thrilled to work with such an awesome group of travel professionals.

I look forward to helping you plan a magical, memorable, *pixie dust sprinkled* trip.

I am a wife, mom of 2, and a Michigan native longing to move down to all of the sunshine and theme park fun! I began with Fairy Godmother Travel in 2023, but if you know me, I have really been “working” as a travel guide for my family and friends for years. My husband even calls me Julie the Cruise Director (IYKYK!). Being a devoted fan of Disney and Harry Potter, I embrace any chance to experience their magic. Paired with my interest in sharing travel tips and tricks, this combination led me to assist others in planning trips of their own after retiring from teaching. Whether it is to a Disney destination, Universal Studios, Caribbean Cruise, or all-inclusive getaway, I look forward to helping you make your vacation dreams come true!

Hi, I’m Taylor, a wife, a mom, a muggle who thrives at Disney and lives on coffee. I grew up in Tampa, FL, but now call Middle Tennessee home! Growing up so close to Disney my family had season passes and that’s where my love for Disney began, with many of my happiest childhood memories occurring on our family trips to Disney World! With two little girls of my own, my life feels like a constant Disney movie full of Elsa braids and toys with a life of their own. I am now creating new Disney memories with my own family and love seeing the magic come to life through my girls' eyes. 

After traveling through Europe, experiencing all inclusive resorts, and friends constantly asking me for Disney travel tips I decided to put my knowledge to work and joined Fairy Godmother Travel in 2023. 

When I'm not planning our next family trip to Disney you can find me on the playground chasing littles, rereading Harry Potter or watching Gilmore Girls for the thousandth time. I am so excited to help you create your next happy memory!
