APRIL W., Travel Planner

Hello from Conway, Arkansas! My name is April Worley. I am a mom to 3 girls (Brooklyn, Tori, and Savannah), 2 of them are golfers and a techie husband Brent. We decided early in our marriage that we would want our kids to experience places/things we didn’t until adulthood. Between golf tournaments we are constantly trying to plan vacations for our family or some adult only places by ourselves. Our family personally loves cruises for the ultimate vacation experience. Brent and I prefer adult only all-inclusive resorts somewhere warm when we need to get away without the girls. I am specialized in Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, all-inclusive Caribbean resorts, Sandals, Disney destinations and more. I get excited when helping other families find the perfect vacation and experiences that best fits their family and budget!

I have been married for 18 years to my best friend Mark. We have 4 awesome kids Seth (16) Zack (14) JT (12) and Emmalyn (6). We have a love for Disney that started when we went to the Disneyland Resort for our first anniversary. There is nothing like the magic of a Disney trip. Mark and I have also done some runDisney events and there is something special about accomplishing a half marathon while running through the parks. We love to travel anywhere and are looking forward to taking the kids on their first cruise as well as Europe (Disneyland Paris) in the spring. I am so excited to be part of the team at Wishing on a Star Travel and look forward to helping you plan the most magical trip to your next destination.

DANA W., Travel Planner

Hey fellow travelers, I’m Dana and I am excited to have the opportunity to help plan your dream vacation. If your interest is Disney, a ‘runcation’, or a fabulous cruise experience, I’m your girl! My earliest and most vivid childhood memories are of the fun I’ve had on family vacations to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. I am ready to use my passion for Disney and travel planning experience to help you create those memories for you and yours like I have done for many others.

I come to you with over 34 years of Disney and travel experience and am intimately familiar with all of Disney’s major lines, resorts, and amenities. I’m particularly specialized in catering to the family experience and traveling with both extended family and small children. I am comfortable in working with the first time Disney traveler, busy executive, or the stay-at-home mom looking to plan a family Disney escape.

If you have ever planned a vacation and run into problem after problem, you know how this takes away from the fun and relaxation your vacation is supposed to be. I work with clients to make sure that doesn’t happen. I endeavor to bring you highly personalized service and recommendations to make sure this vacation is one you will remember for years to come.

CHRISTINE P., Travel Planner

Hello from Kansas! I’m Christine; Travel has always been a passion of mine! I have been lucky enough to been able to go to Disney more times than I can count. As a former Cast Member and DVC Member I get to experience all the magic that Disney has to offer. Now I am able to take my passion for travel and my love of Disney to help you plan all of your magical and memorable vacations.

People always ask me “Why do you always go to Disney when you don’t have kids?” I tell them that Disney has so much more to offer. From special dining experiences (for romance), booths from around the world during EPCOT’s F&W or F&G (for our foodies), world-class recreation (for sports enthusiasts), to deciding to be silly and be a kid again (without people looking at you weird).

Whatever it is you’re looking for I’m your girl. Whether it be a beach vacation, a ski resort or a trip through Europe, I’m here to help with all the little details that can be stressful and time consuming, especially when you don’t know where to start. Let me be your go to guide to make every vacation special.

DARRELL and SALLY A., Travel Planner

Going to Walt Disney World? We want to help you plan! We are Annual Passholders and love helping people plan their trip to the most magical place on earth.  Our experiences can make your trip even more magical.  We love all of the rides; the Hollywood Tower of Terror is one of our favorites – we rode it 7 times in one day! Our record for the most rides in one day is 25 – at Hollywood Studios. 


The Food and Wine Festival in the fall is an experience we never miss and catching some of the various shows like the Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom is another must do. One of our favorite experiences was doing the Wild Africa Trek, a privately guided expedition at Animal Kingdom. It was thrilling to be able to go behind the scenes to observe some of the animals and then have delicious African-inspired snacks while giraffe watching on the savanna. As avid Star Wars fans, it is thrilling to see the Storm Troopers march through Hollywood Studios and then go visit with Chewbacca, BB8, or maybe Kylo Ren in the Star Wars Launch Bay. 


We’ve made many trips with our kids, a few with our grandkids (more trips to come with the whole family). But we found a new way of enjoying Disney World – we started making some of the trips by ourselves and could not believe how much fun we have as a couple. Disney is not just for kids, it is for EVERYONE, every age!


We are always planning our next trip to Disney World. BUT we would really LOVE to customize a Disney Vacation for you to: Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani Resort & Spa in Hawaii, a Disney Cruise, or any of the Adventures by Disney.


But wait, there’s more! There are other places to vacation besides Disney! Yes, it is true! Universal Resort in Orlando, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and or maybe a European River Cruise with Viking is what you are looking for. We can help you make it happen.


We live in beautiful Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky, just minutes from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.

Specializing in Walt Disney World vacations, my experience includes large-family planning, Disney camping, Disney on a budget, Disney NOT on a budget, honeymoons at Disney and my personal favorite-runDisney events!

I love watching the joy of others light up when I discuss all that Disney has to offer. My family and I are HUGE Star Wars fans, who love Disney, and the entire Harry Potter universe which means Universal is a must for us as well! In my free time, I am literally catching up on all the new updates, tips and tricks, and newest videos of what is happening in my favorite vacation locations! My darling daughters are 7 years apart with a new brother on the way, which means I have seen the parks from the eyes of young adult to littlest ones. I have not only traveled with my own children, but have had the joy of taking my own mother and mother in law during my travels and other family so I have planned for small and large groups. I also stay at a different resort each trip to experience it all! Let me make your days more magical and exciting by planning your vacation to ANY Disney Destination or Universal park!
