For our first several trips to Walt Disney World, I did all of my own planning. I’m a crazy planner and love researching, planning, and organizing. But, one year, on a whim, I booked through an agent. And I was so impressed! They know all the little ins and outs and Disney specials that the “average person” doesn’t know about (or have access to). And best of all – their services are FREE!
So, whether you are planning your first trip to Disney, or your one hundred and first (lucky you!), I’d recommend contacting one of the agents listed below. I know each and every one of them and feel confident that they will help to make your trip more special and memorable than you ever thought possible.
Use the contact information below, and be sure to tell them you found them at Heidi’s Head!
My name is Kim Deviese. I was born and raised in Florida, so Walt Disney World® has always been a part of my life. I love the joy that Disney brings to families; so it seemed natural for me to share that joy with others.
I am wife to John, Mom to two handsome sons, and Mimi to the most adorable grandbaby on earth! We love traveling to Disney and taking cruises. Now, I am anxious to introduce my love of Disney to my grandson!
I have been working for 3D Travel Company since 2008. One of my favorite parts of my job is helping clients plan trips to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, but my passion extends to other areas as well. In fact, my love of cruising has earned me the title of Cruise Manager and taken the company from booking strictly Walt Disney World® vacations to planning exotic cruises all around the world. I can book your cruise on the Disney Cruise Line, as well as many other cruise lines.
In addition to Disney and cruising, I can also help plan your trip to Universal Orlando and all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.
Hi! My name is Brenda and I have been an Authorized Disney Travel Specialist with Pixie Vacations for 6 years. I am also the owner of the Mousenapped website. My blog got its name because I was “mousenapped” during my first visit to Walt Disney World as a teenager. I always dreamed of growing my family at Disney and I have been blessed to be able to do so.
I’ve visited the various Disney destinations with little ones, teens, and young adults – all my kids, at different stages of their lives. I now have 3 precious granddaughters, so all of our trips are now multigenerational.
As your agent, I will take care of everything for you and make everything so seamless you will just need to pack and show up. I will constantly monitor your reservation for any new deals that can save you money and apply them immediately to your reservation. I will also make your dining reservations, book your fast passes, advise you on every level of your trip planning, and help in any way necessary to make your trip as magical and memorable as possible.
My clients are only clients for the first 5 minutes, then we’re friends forever. I hope you will soon be one too!

My name is Amanda and I am the owner of Living With The Magic Vacations! My love of Disney began at the age of eight when I came across a biography about Walt Disney written just for kids and I was hooked! I spent the rest of my childhood dreaming of going to Walt Disney World. My first trip took place the fall after I graduated from high school, and just a few weeks later I began working there! Walt Disney World has always felt like home for me.
In addition to working at the Walt Disney World Resort, I’ve also worked as a manager for the Disney Store. I was even luckier to meet a man who loves Disney almost as much as I do! In 2010 we had our Fairytale Wedding at Walt Disney World. We continue visiting Disney Destinations now with our 2 daughters.
And best yet, now I get to put my experience working for the Walt Disney Company to use! I understand the importance of a well planned out trip, but more importantly, I understand how overwhelming planning a trip can become. I help my clients find the balance between a well-organized trip and exploring the magic. My philosophy is to provide my clients with all the information and details they need to enjoy a magical, stress-free vacation!
I specialize in first-time visitors, families with young children, and Disney Fairytale Weddings and Honeymoons.
My name is Tim Brooks. I was born outside Philadelphia, PA and currently live in the Albany, NY area. Making trips to Walt Disney World is something I’ve been doing since the late 70’s, so I have almost 40 years of experience in taking Walt Disney World vacations (even if I was just a kid for most of them).
I have worked for Fairytale Journeys since 2014. As a travel agent, I specialize in booking Disney travel, especially Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line. Additionally, I have planned Disney vacations for clients traveling to Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, destinations in Europe, and throughout the northeast in the United States.
I enjoy planning vacations. No two vacations are ever the same. Destinations are always changing and it’s my job to stay on top of those changes and help plan a wonderful vacation for you and your family.

Matthew & Ellen Gerwitz
Hello and Hola! We are Matthew and Ellen Gerwitz. Originally, we are from upstate New York, but now we live in sunny, central Florida just 25 minutes from Walt Disney World. We are agents with Dreamers Do Travels and love helping people plan their visits to all places Disney, but we specialize in Walt Disney World.
I (Ellen) began visiting Walt Disney World as a child in the 1970s and Matthew got his first experience here on our honeymoon in the late 1980s. We have been Disney fans ever since, but life got busy as we had three children and homeschooled them from K to 12. We visited Disney in 2005 and then again in 2009, 2011, and 2013. As newly-minted empty-nesters, we moved to Florida in September of 2013. Not only did that mean no more snow, it also meant the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World whenever we wanted to – and who would turn that down?
In the past four years, we have visited Walt Disney World more than 300 times with our annual passes! We have done Disney World so often that we know every inch of the parks including the best places to watch parades and fireworks, which attractions to use a FastPass for, and even where the most comfortable bathrooms are. We have also done Disney with a handicap because Matthew uses a wheelchair due to a neurological balance issue. These experiences, along with Ellen’s ability to speak Spanish (Me gustaria ayudarse en planear sus vacaciones a Disney!) provide our clients with top-notch service and up-to-date information about Walt Disney World.
Having now entered the stage of life that Disney calls “Magic Makers,” we love to help our family and friends plan their own magical vacations. We provide (at no extra cost to you) assistance in booking trips, making payments, arranging travel insurance, setting dinner reservations, getting Fastpasses, and more. We promise to treat you like family and give you the same magical experience we give our own kids and grandkids.

Hello, My name is Megan Novak and, from a young age, I have always loved Disney. I started going to Disney at the age of 10 on family vacations with my grandparents. I have now continued this tradition with my family over the past 15 years.
I have been to Disney at least 38 times and try to get there twice a year now. I think Halloween Time is my most favorite time to be in Disney with the decorations and Halloween Parties. I enjoy planning our Disney vacations and talking about Disney; so, 5 years ago with the help of my family, Big Ears Adventures Travel Agency went from a dream to reality (dreams really do come true).
Over the past 5 years we have been able to help friends, family, and customers (now new friends) plan their magical adventures at Disney. We can do as much or as little planning as you want and all for no charge to you – this helps you to save your hard-earned money to use on your family’s magical getaway. Let’s face it, Disney is expensive and can be a once in a lifetime adventure for some families.
Our goal is to make your expedition stress free and as fun as possible all within your budgetary needs.
We can provide personal tips, tricks, and hints for your Disney adventure and additional ways that you can save some money along with any discounts that may apply. We also have experience booking groups and school trips with Disney and we can give you first hand tips on traveling to Disney with an infant.
Contact me today and let’s get started on your Magical Adventure together.
