My name is Donna Dot Disney and I have always had a passion for travel. For many years I wanted to pursue the travel industry. I used Travelsmiths for all of my travel needs which at the time were mostly to DISNEY. I would call and ask for certain resorts, restaurants, magical tours etc. Sally would then say to me "you have so much knowledge about Disney you really should consider working for me as my Disney Specialist." That is where it all began for me as a travel consultant and how I gained the title “Donna Dot Disney.”
I attended the Ocean County Vocational-Technical School for Travel Consulting and graduated in May of 2001. I have completed many courses to become an expert in several areas of travel. I completed the College of Disney Knowledge Graduate Agent Education Program in 2003 and the College of Disney Knowledge Masters program in 2004. Since then I return yearly for Disney’s Earmarked Conventions to further my product knowledge on everything Disney. I have traveled to Disney over 30 times and have stayed in every resort offered from Disney’s value Resorts to Disney’s Deluxe Resorts. It gave me great pleasure to participate in the Keys to the Kingdom tour (behind the scenes) and Disney’s Family Magic tour both of which are lead by Disney Cast members. I have Cruised on the Disney Magic twice and the Disney Wonder twice and those ships offer experiences beyond any other Cruise line. I will be sailing on the new DISNEY DREAM Inaugural sailing which will be a true "DREAM" come true. I will be able to tell you all about it after January 26th 2011.
They are by far the best Cruises I have ever had the pleasure of cruising on. I have attained a great amount of knowledge on every aspect of Disney from attractions to restaurants to touring the parks and of course. Pin trading. Although my knowledge of Disney is extensive it is not my sole specialty. Below is a list of other accomplishments that I am very proud of:
Certified Sandals GOLD Specialist, Hyatt Resorts Specialist, Cruise Line Specialist, Hawaii Destination Specialist, Marriott Hotel Sales Specialist, Caribbean Cruise Line University of WOW Cruise Expert, Princess Cruise line Commodore agent, Club Med Sales Specialist, Attended many CLIA workshops and I am working toward my CLIA ACC accreditation
I have been blessed to be able to travel to many destinations in my lifetime, and I have loved the experiences, and people that I have come in contact with. Some of the places I visited are Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Belize, Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Roatan, St. Lucia, St. Maarten/St. Martin, Turks and Caicos, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. I have also cruised on several of Norwegian Cruise Line ships, Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America, Disney Magic and Wonder, Celebrity Cruise line ships and have toured Royal Caribbean Ships.
Along with being a passionate travel consultant I have been married to my wonderful husband, Joe for 19 years and have an awesome 19-year-old son, Joey that is very involved in athletics and academics. That too is exciting for me, to watch him achieve his goals. They are my motivation!
Being a travel consultant is very Magical and Rewarding to me and I look forward to making your dreams come true through travel.
Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust…
