If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
My full name is actually Angelieke, so pretty much anything someone could spell! I love Grace, because that was my great aunt's name.
Angel grew up in the Midwest and in 1995, picked up and moved to Atlanta, GA. There she worked many different jobs, until finally getting a job as a Project Manager for a Bell South subsidiary. She loved her job and the awesome people she worked with. After a divorce, she took her two small children and moved to the St. Louis area to be closer to her family. There she was a Microsoft trainer for a company contracted to USTRANSCOM. This is where she met her husband Dave. They married in 2003 and took a dream honeymoon to Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line. After returning home they were moved to Bellevue, NE by the USAF. They soon found out they were expecting a baby girl, so Angel decided to stay home and raise the soon to be three children. Dave retired from the USAF in 2007. A few months after retirement a little boy was born.
Angel loves spending with her friends and family. She is the PTA President for the two younger kids' elementary school. Her younger daughter Julia is a competitive gymnast so Angel loves to be her cheerleader and attends all of her competitions.
Family is the most important thing, and having fun together is a must. Angel's background in project management and her passion and love for Disney help her to plan amazing vacations for her clients.
What is your favorite special event at a Disney Park?
My favorite special event is the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT. They bring in choirs from around the country and they sing beautiful Christmas carols as a celebrity reads the story of the Nativity.
What do you do first thing when you board a Disney Cruise?
EAT! We get on board as early as possible so we may not have our rooms available, the lunch gives us a chance to eat and plan out the rest of our day!
If you had to choose one Disney Destination to visit this year, which would it be-Disneyland, Disney World, or a Disney Cruise?
We cruised and visited WDW a few months ago, so I would love to explore Disneyland. The new Cars Land would be so much fun for my little guy and I would love to see the World of Color show.
What's the one thing that you have to take home from your Disney trip?
I always get a zip hoodie, usually the one with the year on it. I love them, living in Nebraska means cold weather, so I get to wear them a lot!
If you could be a character in a Disney movie or TV show, who would it be?
I love Elsa, from Frozen. She is strong and overcomes her own insecurities and fears!
What is your favorite Disney Attraction or Show?
I love Expedition Everest and Space Mountain. Fast and Fun!
FAQs about my services:
Why are your services free?
Pixie and Pirate Destinations, nor myself, ever charges our clients anything for our services. I am paid commission from the companies I book vacations with - Disney, Universal Vacations, Norwegian Cruise Lines, etc. You will pay the same amount of money booking a trip with me as you would if you booked it directly through the company itself. And sometimes I am able to find a better deal because of the special promotions that are available. A reservation transfer may be an option if you have already booked a vacation.
As a Dream Vacation Planner (DVP) I work strictly off of commission and I hope that if you decide to book a vacation you will choose to book your vacation with me. Please keep this in mind if I do a lot of research on a vacation for you. Regardless of the number of hours I put toward helping a client plan, I am not paid hourly,
Why should I book my vacation with you and Pixie and Pirate Destinations?
I have an honest passion for Disney and the Disney destinations. And my Disney knowledge is up to date since this is my career. I have guidelines to follow that are put in place by Pixie and Pirate Destinations. I have been trained to provide you with the best customer service in the industry. And I am willing to work "with" you in planning your vacation.
At Pixie and Pirate Destinations our motto is "go above and beyond for each client's individual needs." As a valued client, I will be here every step of the way to help you with your concerns or questions. You will have an email address and phone number where you can reach me when you need to. Once your vacation is booked I will continue to help with dining reservations, a personalized daily itinerary, an updated personal web page where you can track your reservation and more. I am here to see you through to the end of your vacation to make sure you have a magical time.
What is the first step?
The first step in the vacation planning process is to request a quote for your desired Disney destination. When you request a quote you have the option of choosing me as you DVP - so please be sure to click on my name or add it into the comments. Once I have your quote request I will listen to your needs and expectations, and guide you through the best options for your family.
How do I pay for my vacation?
To process deposits and payments for your vacation I will need your address, phone number and credit card information. I can either schedule a phone call for you to give this information over the phone, or you can use our
secure website to submit for a payment.
Pixie and Pirate Destinations, nor myself, will EVER personally make a charge to your credit card. You will see a charge from the Walt Disney Travel Company (or another travel vendor such as Universal Travel, Norwegian Cruise Lines, etc.). I use your card information to process your deposit or payment directly through the travel vendor (Disney, etc.). And your CC information will always be kept private. If you ever see a charge that you think is fraudulent contact your credit card company immediately.
What will you do for me that I cannot do for myself?
Of course you can book a Disney vacation on your own - that's easy! But when you book a Disney vacation with me you have my knowledge and experience to tap into at your disposal. You will be working with someone who "knows" Disney and understands how Disney travel can change minute to minute. Because of this you can be assured that I will be able to guide you in the right direction at all times. If I do not know the answer immediately, I WILL find it out. In addition, you can count on the following "extras" from me:
All of the above services are FREE to my clients that book a Disney reservation with Pixie and Pirate Destinations. Some of my clients prefer to take advantage of ALL of these services. While others only need me to do one or two. Your vacation planning is important to me, but I never want to step on your toes - you are always in control!
