Lisa AndinoTravel Advisor
Hello! My name is Lisa Andino and I love all things Disney!!! The seeds of my Disney passion were sown at a young age, when my parents took me to Walt Disney World at the age of 11. I was immediately drawn to the old-fashioned shops on Main St., the glittering spires of Cinderella Castle, the thrilling rides and attractions, and the spectacular live entertainment. The memories created on that trip were the highlight of my childhood. I revisited that magical destination on my honeymoon and have returned numerous times with my own family.
With each trip my passion and enthusiasm for this wonderful place has grown. I feel strongly about the high quality family time I am able to experience at Disney, and I want to share that with others so that they too, can experience all that Disney has to offer. I have spent the bulk of my professional career helping young people and families as a middle school guidance counselor, and it seems only natural to me to merge my two strengths (counseling and Disney) and launch a second career as a travel agent specializing in Disney Destinations.
What qualifies me for this role? I have nearly a dozen trips to Disney under my belt. I have visited with various types of groups (adults-only, families with small children, multi-generational) and have stayed at all levels of on-site accommodations from Value Resorts to Deluxe Villas. I have extensive park knowledge and am a proud graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge program. My experience with the Disney Dining Plan, Character Meet’n’Greets, and FastPass+ can help you get the most fun from your vacation dollars. Many people don’t realize that a good vacation is hard work! All of the planning and preparation can leave you feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, even before your suitcase is packed. Let me help ease that burden for you by customizing a Disney vacation to suite your family’s needs. I can provide you with recommendations for dining, rides, theme park touring plans, entertainment and recreation so that you don’t have to worry about it. In my favorite Pixar film, “Finding Nemo”, Peach focuses on “finding a happy place” when she is experiencing distress in the dentist’s aquarium. In this fast-paced world, where life can change in an instant, it’s important to take time to go to our happy place and focus on what is truly important- making special memories by spending time with those we love. Going to Disney has helped me find my happy place. It would be my honor and privilege to help you find yours.
