    Ever since her first trip to Walt Disney World in 1982,  Julie knew she just had to go back again. And so she did. Since, she has taken 34 trips to the Walt Disney World Resort. Julie has stayed at many Disney resorts and has gone on several of the Disney tours.  She has also attended Walt Disney World during Star Wars Weekends,  Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and The Candlelight Processional.
     As the sign right outside of Magic Kingdom says, "Here you leave Today and enter the World of Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy".  "This is what I wish for others who come to Walt Disney World. To leave the cares of today for awhile, and experience a little fantasy in their lives. That's why I get excited about my clients, friends and family when they visit Walt Disney World. I want them to feel the joy that only a Disney vacation brings."
     Julie has been planning weddings for the last 14 years, and has also worked as a floral designer. But her passion for Disney has been building and she knew it was time to "Live Her Dream".  So taking a leap of faith, she became a recent graduate of The College of Disney Knowledge. She lives in Danville, Illinois with her husband, teenage son and grown daughter. Julie has helped friends and family plan their Disney vacations and itineraries through the years and would give just as much detail and passion to your Disney vacation or honeymoon.

Guest Testimonials


Hi Julie,

We've been back from our WDW vacation for almost a month now, and we're still coming back down to earth after our wonderful trip!  I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how great it all went, and to thank you for your help from start to finish.  The weather was great, the crowds were manageable, and the parks were as wonderful as I remember.  My wife Julie had a great time on her first visit too, and we made the most of our week in Orlando.  Your recommendation of Pop Century was excellent, we really enjoyed the resort, from the several pools to the cafeteria.  Although we didn't utilize all the great promotions you offered us, we really felt like a lot of the details were taken care of for us, which helped us to enjoy our stay even more.  Although we loved everything, highlights from our trip include exploring Animal Kingdom, taking pictures at every country in Epcot's World Showcase, Julie seeing Cinderella Castle for the first time, and me becoming a star in the American Idol Experience at Disney's Hollywood Studios!  Being huge Harry Potter fans, I should also mention that we spent HOURS in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and found it absolutely incredible.

Although there were a couple of minor lower points in our experience (some of those shuttles take FOREVER to arrive, we wore ourselves right out, and how about free Wi-Fi in the resorts, Disney??), our overall experience was overwhelmingly positive.  I have blogged all about our trip, which includes a LOT of pictures and videos of my moment of American Idol glory, as well as a glowing recommendation for you and your services (you can read it all at, you might need to scroll down a little to find the relevant posts).  I'm so glad I decided to check out your website when we were planning our trip, and I'll surely let other people know about Magical Travel, and I'm sure when the time comes for us to visit Orlando again, we'll be in touch.

Thanks again,

Drew and Julie Graham

John and I want to thank you so much for all arranging our Disney trip.  We had a wonderful time!  Everything was perfect, including the weather!  Our daughter and her family want to go next year. 
So, we may need your assistance again.  Again, thank you!

John and Bonnie

Julie -
We really enjoyed our Disney trip. Your planning for our trip made everything go smoothly. Our three grandkids enjoyed the character breakfast, especially the autographs. Mickey's Backyard BBQ was a real hit.

 Thanks, Ken and Jill


Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for planning the trip.  We had  a great time and look forward to the next trip a few years down the road.

Hey.  I just wanted to let you know everything was wonderful.  Thank you for all your help. Online check in was awesome.  We got there, went to the counter, showed my ID and were on our way to our room, that quickly.   I did finally get to see some of the shows we never took the time for before, and really enjoyed them.  Plus I got what I really wanted, time with my family, doing something we all enjoy, and not having to worry about anything else for a week. 


Trip went really well ... thanks for your help!  
Thanks again for all the planning ... makes it really easy!

We had an amazing trip!  Thank you again for all of the help!  They were great with my niece and her diet needs.  Thank you for all of the work you put into it.  The girls loved the post card when we returned.  We will get in touch when we start planning our next trip - in the meantime - I will send anyone who asks your way!


We just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge THANK YOU for all you did to make our Disney trip wonderful and easy. Everything, from the Pirate Room for the girls to the ease of the whole travel (checking bags through to our hotel rooms at the resort, Magical Express, etc.), the fabulous front-and-center seating at the Polynesian Luau EVERYTHING was top-notch! We were able to get to all of the parks we wanted to and see the attractions we most wanted to as well as had relaxing time at the various pools at the Caribbean Beach Resort. The Quick Service Meal Plan was exactly what we needed and the restaurants we visited were fabulous! Fulton's Crab House was a standout! The food and service were unsurpassed! The postcard here at the house, waiting for us upon our arrival home, was such a nice touch.

We are already letting friends and family know that when it comes time for their trips to Disney, they need to contact you.

Thank you again. We really appreciate ALL that you did for us!

Don & Jane U.

Just wanted to say thanks again! We had a blast and have recommended you to everyone. We hope to go next year with some of our friends and will keep you posted.
