Hi! My name is Cathy, and I live in TX with my husband and two wonderful children. My love for Disney started early, created by my mother who was a cast member at Disneyland when she was a young lady. As a child, we watched all of the classic Disney movies, became familiar with the characters, and loudly sang many famous Disney songs (A dream is a wish your heart makes, Hi-Ho Hi-Ho It’s off to work we go, and Winnie the Pooh). The “happiest place on earth” became a part of me and what I wanted to share with my children! So much so, that I bought into DVC in 2012 and decided to help others plan their vacations.
Since having a family, we have been fortunate enough to take our children to WDW when they were both at the age of 2, and then again at 5 and close to 9. I feel very blessed to have seen their experiences of the characters, shows, etc at these different ages. We have also been on two wonderful and relaxing Disney cruises, on the Dream and the Fantasy. Besides being able to share these vacation memories with my family, I have enjoyed surprising them with some of these trips too! For my first surprise trip, I designed a puzzle with Mickey at the front of a cruise ship, inviting my children to join them on the specific dates of the cruise. Only after they found the treasure chest did they see the puzzle pieces and then had to put it together to get the final clue! Then there was a note from Captain Mickey, inviting them on another cruise – in the “golden egg” at the Easter egg hunt. And my last surprise involved the help of a cast member at a DVC resort…. I had a picture of Mickey in a tux, pulling a card with my children’s names out of a golden envelope, in front of the castle, where it said “See ya real soon”! We were playing Goofy bingo at the DVC resort, the night before we left for WDW. There was a candy bowl you reached into when you got an answer correct. He put this picture in the bowl before going over to one of my children – their eyes lit up and they had the biggest grins. Once again, another magical moment by mom!
Now, after several years in the corporate world, I have decided to combine my leadership and financial skills with my passion for travel, attention to planning and love of all things Disney, in order to help others plan a memorable Disney vacation. As a Dream Maker with Travel on a Dream, LLC. (an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner), I look forward to planning a Magical Disney Vacation for you and your family.

What Cathy’s clients are saying about her ~
“Cathy is amazing! Her knowledge of “all things Disney” is so valuable – she was available and helpful for every phase of preparing for our vacation. Her knowledge of dining, transportation, lodging, tickets and even packing was incredibly valuable. This was our first Disney trip and she took the “hard work” out of it. The whole experience was smooth and the preparation we did ahead of time made our vacation so successful! This was a “trip of a lifetime” for us – our kids said it was “best summer ever” due to this trip!” Mel V. from Dallas, TX
“Cathy is an amazing rep with extensive knowledge on Disney. I will definitely use her for all of my Disney needs – and will recommend her to everyone I know!”
