What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Well That Didn't Go How I Had Planned - and I wouldn't have it any other way.
After graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology, Stephanie planned on grad school - but life happened, and grad school didn't. Stephanie joined the Pixie and Pirate crew in 2013 to pursue a profession where the end product is happy clients with magical memories.
Stephanie views a trip to Disney as so much more than rides and characters, it's about making memories with the people you love the most. She takes the time to get to know her clients, their expectations, and Disney dreams.
A New Jerseyan at heart, but transplanted to Michigan, she still misses the pizza after 20+ years. Stephanie has walked on the Great Wall of China, met LL Cool J, took college courses in American Sign language and at least once a week she finds the time to put on a bridesmaid gown and have a princess party with her daughter.
What is one guilty pleasure that you have to indulge in each time you visit Walt Disney World?
Dessert after dinner...and lunch! I would never do that at home.
Who is your favorite Disney character?
Flynn Rider....he's got a thing for brunettes
If you could have a job at Disney World what would you do?
A fairy godmother in training at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
If you could visit an empty Disney park, all alone, which would it be and what would you do?
I would go to the World Showcase at Epcot and explore every nook and cranny. There never seems to be enough time to see it all.
What is your favorite Disney attraction or show?
I love Soarin at Epcot, it is breathtaking.
What's the one thing that you have to take home from your Disney trip?
Postcards. Whenever I travel with my daughter I buy a postcard and write a summary of the best parts of our trip. It's a really affordable way to capture the memories!
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!
