It should have been a sign that Missy was destined to help make vacation dreams come true for her clients since, as a child, Missy loved "playing travel agent" with her sister using the excess airline ticket forms from her uncle's printing company. Missy’s earliest travel memories are of camping at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground in the early 70’s with her extended family and exploring the streets of tiny French towns with her mother and sister when they would tag along on her father's business trips. Since travel was always a part of life in Missy’s family, joining the LBAC Travel team in 2009 and helping others travel to destinations near and far was a natural fit.
A self-confessed Disney fanatic raising a brood of five kiddos, ages 6-21, who, along with their fun-loving dad, share a love for all things Mickey, Missy loves to plan Disney resort and cruise vacations, but also knows that there is a world outside of the Mouse, too. This Texas-based, Dream Vacation Maker is a Disney College of Knowledge Graduate and visits the House of the Mouse several times per year to stay “in the know” for her clients. Some of her favorite Disney memories are running through Cinderella Castle with full trumpet fanfare for the Disney Half marathon, attending the christenings of the Disney Dream and Fantasy, riding the Disneyland Paris version of Space Mountain in Disneyland Paris (tres terrifiant!), seeing all of the Glow with the Show ears light up in perfect synchronization with the World of Color performance in Disneyland.
When not helping clients with Disney vacations, Missy is busy finding the perfect cruise, beach resort, or honeymoon location for her clients. Don’t tell Mickey, but Missy is also a Uniworld River Cruise Specialist, a Sandals Certified Specialist, an AM Resorts’ Master Agent, an Accredited Cruise Counselor with the Cruise Line International Association, a Freestyle Specialist with Norwegian Cruise Line, a University of WOW Expert with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and earned Carnival Cruise Line’s PhD of Awesome.
Some of Missy’s favorite travel experiences recently have been biking along the Adriatic with her son while on a Uniworld river cruise, bobsledding in Jamaica, snuba diving on Isla Roatan, climbing Mayan ruins in Belize, watching the sunset on a bali bed in Turks and Caicos, hiking in Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii, whale watching in Cabo, catching the lights sparkling on the Eiffel tower in Paris, dancing until 4am at Tao in Vegas, tasting her way through some of the best vineyards of Sonoma… to name a few.
Missy’s goal is to craft the perfect vacation for you so that your travels, whether to Disney... or beyond, are a no-stress, dream come true experience.
