Melissa Ritrivi

When I experienced the enchantment of Disney during my first trip to Walt Disney World at the age of 1, I fell in love with Disney and have been in love ever since! Disney has always been a part my life and my family’s tradition of annual Disney vacations has created my fondest memories that I will always cherish. I have been to Walt Disney World over 30 times (including my honeymoon) and have been to Disneyland a bunch of times. I just can’t get enough! There is nothing else like the feeling I get when I set foot on Disney property — I am overcome with so much excitement and feel like a kid again. When I took my daughter to Walt Disney World for the first time and experienced the magic through her eyes, it was an even more amazing feeling and I just knew I had to be a part of this. My background is in advertising client service. I realized that background, combined with my love of Disney, would launch me into my next career. That’s how I became a vacation planner, specializing in Disney vacations. I want to help everyone create their own very special memories and have a truly magical time that only a Disney vacation can provide.

Not only do I love going on Disney vacations, but I also love planning them. As my family knows, I research every detail and plan our trips (in my infamous spreadsheets) so that we can have the most enjoyable, memorable vacation. Having a toddler and having been to Disney throughout every phase of my life, I can help you plan your Disney vacation and give you great tips to meet the needs and interests of your family. There are so many things to consider when traveling to a Disney destination and I understand that it can be a bit overwhelming. I will make your vacation planning a much simpler experience. Not only I will help you decide on accommodations and reserve them, but also will provide recommendations for dining and make those reservations. I will also assist with looking into and booking special events and activities and, to top it off, I can provide itinerary planning.

I am eager to use my experience and knowledge of Disney Destinations to create an amazing vacation that meets your needs, interests, and wishes. I’m here to do all the work for you – whether planning a birthday celebration, a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or anything in between. And no worries – you can have a magical vacation on any budget!

Please contact me to book a visit to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa, a cruise aboard the Disney Cruise Line, a guided vacation with Adventures by Disney or a stay at one of Disney’s other magical destinations. I look forward to planning your Disney vacation and making your vacation dreams come true

In the words of the great Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it”.
