Fun Facts About Me
What is your biggest food weakness?
Chips and Salsa....just can't say no!
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Leaving my son in the NICU after he was born. He was born at 31 weeks and still had a little growing to do. We were blessed because he only needed to put on weight and learn how to eat. We had struggled to have a baby and then when he was born early, well it was the scariest moment in my life. He's a smart, handsome 8 year old today...I might be a little biased....
What's your favorite color?
Blue...just about any shade!
Summer or winter?
Winter...Not like our South Texas winters, though...give me some snow to play in!
Where were you born?
I was born and raised in Texas.
Are you the oldest, youngest, middle or only child?
I am the oldest. I have a brother who is 3 years younger than me.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
I would live in Montana. I always loved the idea of living where I could walk out on my
back porch, sit in my porch swing with a cup of coffee and stare at the mountains.
Are you a morning or night person?
I'm a night person who is slowly becoming a morning person.
What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
In the summertime I love for my husband to throw something on the grill and to go swimming as a family. In the fall it's all about football at my house!
Bungee jump or sky dive?
Neither....You would have to push me!
Rhonda was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She met her husband Zak while working as a flight attendant based in Orlando, Florida. They have a young son and a toddler daughter that keep them busy playing board games or putting puzzles together.
Now living in South Texas, in summertime you are likely to find Rhonda floating down the Frio River with her family or running dinner out to her farmer husband, during their harvest. Come fall at her house, and it is all about Sam Houston State Bearkat Football.
When at Disney, you are sure to bump into Rhonda at the Polynesian Resort Volcano pool - a great place for a margarita and to catch a glimpse of Wishes fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom.
What’s your favorite special event at a Disney park?
The Candlelight Processional at EPCOT - I just love being at the Disney parks around the holidays.

Chip and Dale...They remind me of my kids!
If you could have a job at Disney World what would you do?
Jungle Cruise Boat Captain at Magic Kingdom...Best.Job.Ever.

My family gets personalized Christmas ornaments every trip. We love to talk about each trip as we decorate the tree every year.
What is your favorite Disney attraction or show?
Tough Question! First thing that comes to mind is The Haunted Mansion...loved it as a kid and it is still a must-do on every trip.
If you could be a character in a Disney movie or TV show, who would you be?
Belle from Beauty and the Beast...I am a book worm too!
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!
