What is your favorite thing about working for Get Away Today?

What is one of your most memorable vacations?
My most memorable vacation that I have been on would have to be my family trip to Honolulu. I was about 12 years old at the time and it was the first time that I had gone on a big trip, so it was really exciting. We got to go to the beach and see dolphins for the first time. We had a blast!
What are your personal three top vacation destinations?
My three top vacations destinations would have to be Honolulu, Disneyland and soon-to-be Belize!
What is your favorite Disneyland memory?
My favorite Disneyland memory would be during Get Away Today's recent FAM (familiarization trip). We got to see Fantasmic! and I thought I was going to cry I loved it so much!
What is one of your most memorable experiences with a guest or partner?
One of my most memorable experiences was when I had a guest come into the office and we just talked and talked about Disneyland for a long time. She was an older lady and this was going to be her first vacation ever. She had been saving for this trip for the last 10 years so that all of her family could go with her as well. After we picked everything she wanted and I went to get her package ready, I grabbed some goodies for her grandkids as well. She started crying when I gave her the package, which made me start to cry as well. She was just very grateful for the help. It was one of the most touching things I was able to see and it made my whole year. She was happy and she was able to save quite a bit of money, so she could put that towards food for when they were in Disneyland. Making a guest's day is one of the best parts of my job!
