What’s your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?
I can’t take ALL the credit for this one but raising the beautiful, kind-hearted and head strong young lady that I call my daughter. I absolutely love her to the “moon and back”.
Jamie is every bit of a Southern Girl. She married her high school sweetheart Greg and they’ve been married for 31 years. Jamie shares her love of all things Disney with her daughter, Lauren - a former Disney College Program castmember at EPCOT. Jamie lives in Southwest Arkansas where the courthouse square is lined with Magnolia trees. Their country place is also home to their two cats and two crazy dogs.
In addition to being an agent for Pixie and Pirate Destinations, Jamie also works at Southern Arkansas University. Home of the Blue and Gold Muleriders! And YES, their mascot is a mule! Everyone on campus knows that she is a “Disney Nerd” and she can often be found helping co-workers plan their Disney adventures.
Jamie enjoys spending time with her family and friends, taking pictures, and scrapbooking. She is pretty sure that she’ll never get caught up with her Disney scrapbooks. She typically returns home from “the Mouse House” with hundreds of pictures on her camera and Photopass card.
What is your favorite memory from a Disney vacation?
There are wonderful memories around each and every corner of the Walt Disney World Resort—far too many to mention. But I’ll never forget the look on their faces when my daughter and my Mom saw the castle for the very first time. Truly priceless.
What is your favorite Disney ride?
Peter Pan’s Flight—and yes, I’ll even stand in that line without a FastPass.
What is one thing you bring home from every Disney vacation?
Christmas ornaments for our family tree and my daughter’s Disney tree.
What is your favorite special event at a Disney Park?
The International Food and Wine Festival at Epcot
If you could visit an empty Disney park, all alone, which would it be and what would you do?
I would visit the Magic Kingdom so I could take all the pictures I wanted without random strangers in the background.
If you had to choose one Adventures by Disney destination, which would it be?
Hands down, Scotland. I’d love to explore the castles while touring the countryside. And a glimpse of Nessie would be an added bonus!
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!
