What is your favorite TV show of all time - you've seen them all, can watch it over and over again and quote lines from it?
My favorite TV Show of all time? I would have to say Gilmore Girls however I don’t think I could quote it… now I can quote friends and Seinfeld because those are my dad’s favorites and the man can’t go a day without watching at least one episode of Seinfeld… imagine how lost he felt on our 3 day cruise for my wedding… lol!!
Heidi was born in Puerto Rico and moved to New York at the age of 3. All her life she swore she would never live any place else... That all changed when she met her prince charming, Jon. An online dating site brought the two of them together - and an instant connection kept them inseparable. When Jon moved to Texas Heidi soon followed, never regretting her decision once.
Heidi has always had a secret love for Disney, visiting Walt Disney World only once as a child, and always begging to go back, but not being able to until she was an adult and Jon's similar love (for Disney movies at least) allowed Heidi to finally make it public. On a goof one day she said, "Hey, what if we get married on a Disney Cruise?" Thinking she would get a crazy look and be laughed at, she hesitated. But instead the response was "Sure sounds fun!" That's what officially sent Heidi over the edge into a full blown Disney obsessed spiral that has yet to let up.
Heidi & Jon were married on Castaway Cay on Saturday, October 13th, 2013, while sailing on the Disney Dream. It was the wedding she always dreamed of and could not have been more perfect.

Photopass Photographer. I love taking Photos!
How old were you were you first visited Walt Disney World?
8 or 9 but I really don’t remember much from that trip. I DO remember getting a pearl from the pick a pearl place.
If you could be a character in a Disney movie or TV show, who would you be?
London Tipton from Suite Life on Deck because she’s spoiled rotten, gets everything she wants and lives on a cruise ship.
If you could resurrect one retired Walt Disney World attraction, character, show, event, etc., what would it be?
I would have loved to experience Mr Toads Wild ride.
Which Disney Cruise ship is your favorite?
The Dream - it’s the only one I have been on so far but I got married and honeymooned on it so it will forever hold a special place in my heart
What’s your favorite special event at a Disney park?

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!
