Born, raised and currently living in Kokomo, Indiana (an hour north of Indianapolis), April has been married to Bill since 1993. April worked for Chrysler for 14 years and also in the local school system as a paraprofessional for 6 years.
April has loved all things Disney since she was a little girl and had her first visit to Walt Disney World at 3 years old. Her mom tells her that she wanted to see Cinderella and Snow White, and she was going to kick the evil queens. She ran through the crowd when the Big Bad Wolf came down the parade route! Her dad was scared he wouldn’t find her in the crowd.
Her pirate, Trevor, was born in 1996, and her special needs princess with non-verbal autism, Allie, was born in 1997. She and Bill took Trevor to Disney World for his first trip when he was 11 months old and April was pregnant with Allie. Her family has enjoyed numerous trips to Disney World over the years as well as Disney Cruise Line. She has well-rounded knowledge about the different types of Disney trips, as well as the many resorts.
April's number one priorities are God and her family. She enjoys spending time and laughing with her family (they’re a goofy bunch!), window shopping (she hates to spend money!) and traveling to warm, sunny, tropical places (the Florida Keys are a favorite!).
When visiting Disney, she can be found taking her princess on her favorite rides and enjoys seeing how happy Disney makes her! Watching her daughter have so much fun brings tears to her eyes.
Who is your favorite Disney character?
Tinkerbell, she reminds me of my daughter, because she doesn’t talk and has an attitude!
Do you consider yourself a Pixie or a Pirate?
Pixie, of course!
How old were you were you first visited Walt Disney World?
3 years old
If you had to choose one Disney destination to visit this year, which would it be – Disneyland, Disney World, or a Disney Cruise?
Disney Cruise, the cruises are awesome!
What is your favorite Disney attraction or show?
A tie between Fantasmic! and Celebrate the Magic with Wishes right after.
What’s your favorite special event at a Disney park?
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, love the Headless Horseman ride down the parade route!
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!
