Fun Facts About Us
What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
Going to Church in the morning, God is the center of my marriage and our life! Then it’s NAPTIME for everyone, including mommy (when I am not clipping my coupons or being a Pixie!).
Do you have any hidden talents?
No hidden talents but one COOL fact no one knows about me and my husband:
Our grandparents (both sets whom were deceased when we met) are buried side by side in a TINY cemetery and in an even SMALLER town, in the ‘country’, in south Alabama. This was discovered in some pictures I took after I visited my grandmother’s grave to plant flowers with my relatives. Chris’s grandparents tombstones were in EVERY picture I took that day. This was a year before Chris and I even met!
What is your favorite book?
Anything about the history of Disney, Disney Tour guides, Disney anything....
Where were you born?
Birmingham, Alabama - Sonya was raised in Fort Payne, AL , and went to college at Auburn! (War Eagle!!), then moved to Birmingham for Law School, where we met.
Are you the oldest, youngest, middle or only child?
MIDDLE. I have an older brother and younger sister (I refuse to have another child...no one should have to be stuck in the middle...lol)
Growing up, what was your dream job?
Sonya - I wanted to be a lawyer ... yes, really I did! Then decided to put in on hold for my family!
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
Italy - it is where my family is from! (I am 1/4 so that means I have only 1/4 of a temper right?) Maybe one day I'll get to at least visit! Would love to see where my family is from!!
What's your favorite color?
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Taking the leap of faith to close my law office of 6 years and stay at home with my babies! The hardest decision but the best. The decision to homeschool was just as hard...The whole ‘but you spent so many years in school’ thing still gets me...
What is your biggest food weakness?
All of it....I love to eat!
In 2001, Sonya met her soon to be husband while she was attending her first year of law school. They began their journey and love affair with all things Disney on their romantic ‘Land and Sea’ Honeymoon in 2004. Currently residing in Birmingham, Sonya was born and raised in Alabama.
Sonya is a quick-witted criminal defense lawyer, turned stay-at-home mom of 2 (Isabella, a high spirited, spunky, 5 year old and Isaiah, our laid back and fun loving 2 year old). She now homeschools her 2 young children and enjoys helping clients experience the Disney “magic” that her family knows and loves so much.
With a multitude of personal Disney vacations under her belt (mostly with babies, toddlers, and twice pregnant), Sonya has experienced staying at many of Disney’s resorts and has eaten at numerous dining locations throughout Walt Disney World. Her family loves starting their day with breakfast at their favorite resort, the Polynesian, at the restaurant, ‘Ohana. The atmosphere there is MAGICAL. A perfect ending to their day is watching ‘Wishes’ at the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party in the Magic Kingdom.
What do you do first when you board a Disney Cruise – pool or lunch?
Lunch then the pool. Always wear your swimsuit under your clothes!
Do you consider yourself a Pixie or a Pirate?
Definitely a Pixie!
What's the one thing that you have to take home from your Disney trip?
Pins! We are pin traders and I always buy more than I trade.
If you could visit an empty Disney park, all alone, which would it be and what would you do?
Magic Kingdom, I would love to walk around the whole park by myself just to look at everything and take a stroll without rushing anywhere! But even when we go without the kids, we end up rushing everywhere.
If you had to choose one Disney destination to visit this year, which would it be – Disneyland, Disney World, or a Disney Cruise?
Disneyland, I have never been there and hope to one day!
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!
