About Me

Hey there!

I’m Jamie, traveling mama, entrepreneur, and travel advisor. I’m addicted to Disney, traveling and exploring the world with my family, and have a passion for helping families experience the magic of travel.

My home is filled with love and chaos, 2 crazy girls, 2 large dogs, and the most spectacular architect and Disney Cast Member I call my husband. We live in Florida and spend our weekends playing at Orlando’s many theme parks and visiting the beach.

In 2015, after helping numerous families plan their vacations to various Disney Destinations, I started a blog to answer all of the many travel questions I received daily. In 2016, the blog grew into a travel agency, and Love of the Magic Vacations was born.

My team and I spend our days creating family vacations around the world. What started as a blog is now a full-service travel agency planning vacations worldwide.

We create custom vacations for each of our clients that not only meet but exceed expectations. There is no greater gift than making memories while sharing the world and its cultures with your kids.

You can also follow our adventures and explore destinations with me on Facebook and Instagram. Comment, say hello, and let me know which destinations you love the most!

I look forward to working with you to plan your next vacation!

2016 – We moved to Disney World 

In the summer of 2015, I went out on a whim and submitted my husband’s resume for a Senior Architect position at Disney. In October, several interviews later, he was hired!  We are now currently living in the Orlando, Florida area, and living the Disney dream! I am lucky enough to visit the parks regularly, along with experience Disney’s many dining options and resorts! Follow along on social media for regular updates!

I’m not sure where my Love of the Mouse, or all things Disney came from, or when it started really.  I don’t come from a “Disney” family, but I assure you I am part of one now!  My children and husband have traveled to Disney many times, and we have many plans for future Disney travel. Some trips that are already book and paid for, and other trips floating around in my head, just waiting to wreak havoc on my husband’s savings plan!

My first trip to Walt Disney World was when I was 15 and in the 10th grade. I had been asking my Dad for several years to take me when finally he agreed!  He had thought for years that I would get over it. So he kept putting it off! He thought surely I would grow out of it! Clearly I didn’t then and never have! That was the first of my many trips to Disney World! It was the start of my detailed Disney trip planning work, complete with a daily outline and outfits to go with the plans! The first time I walked down Main Street, USA, at 15, I cried, and then thanked my Dad profusely for finally taking me! Honestly, I still cry every single time I arrive! The magic never gets old and my excitement grows with each new trip!

Somehow I’ve managed to get to visit Disney in some capacity every few years. I will beg, borrow, and steal (not really steal) my way there at any given opportunity. I have actually been banned from visiting the park by my hubby on a work trip or two (so not nice!), but even then I manage to make my way to Downtown Disney (Disney Springs now), just to get a taste of all that Disney magic has to offer!

I’m not sure what I love most, the rides, the magical atmosphere, or the characters, but I do know that the Interior Designer in me just can’t get over the amazing creativity and attention to detail that the Imagineers design. I am continuously awe-inspired by their work! One day I hope to contribute to the magic in some capacity.

For now, my Disney work is in this blog, where I hope to help others plan a perfect Disney trip for their family! Whether it be at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, or on a Disney Cruise.

I currently live in the Denver, Colorado metro area. By day I am a Disney travel agent and model home Interior Designer. In the evenings I spend my time at home, with my Architect husband and two young girls.
