MEET OUR TEAM

You do not choose ONE agent to work with. You receive an entire team of agents that each specializes in a part of your vacation planning process. After you book with us, you will be assigned one Magical Planner to handhold you through our process so you still have one point person. We, as a team, work full time on your vacation plans and have internal alerts and reminders so nothing is overlooked!

AGENCY OWNER

I haven’t always been **borderline obsessed** with Disney. I have over a decade of experience in various doctor's offices and hospitals running statistical analysis to create efficiency. Shortly after taking time off to be a stay-at-home mom, my husband and I found ourselves on our first family trip to Disney World when our kids were 9 months and 22 months old. It was then that I learned Disney isn’t just magical, it’s logistical! So, now I’ve taken all my analysis—combined it with efficiency, organization, and Disney-like superior customer service—and help families create a Disney vacation (or cruise!) your family will always happily remember.

The team I built around me has the same magical obsession with similar stories to share. We work as one team so you don't have to select from one agent who has the best reviews or the most experience. Keep reading to learn more about what makes Mouse Class Travel the agency you should work with.

Dining and Experiences

Hello, Disney Friends! Four years ago, I found myself as the lead planner for my extended family's trip to Disney World. There were twenty-five of us!! Overwhelmed, I reached out to a blogger for some help who had two little kids and knew a lot about Disney. This blogger was Lisa Thompson, owner of Mouse Class Travel, and now here I am, filled with gratitude to be working with this incredible team. I will be the magic maker who oversees all of the dining reservations and experiences booked by our incredible dining team. Similar to the character Joy from Inside Out, I will be the one pushing all the buttons to make sure you are left with nothing but happy and magical memories from your Disney vacation. When I am not managing the dining and experiences team, I am chauffeuring my four kids around St. Paul, Minnesota to their various activities. I wish I could say our home life is filled with "Hakuna Matata" but I can relate more to the Cheshire Cat when he says, "We're all mad here." Even though it's a crazy life, it's a good life filled with incredible memories from our Disney adventures. I can't wait to help you add magic to your Disney vacation!

I live in Louisiana with my son who is equally passionate about Disney (and baseball) as much as me! It wasn’t until adulthood that I took my first visit. After that first trip, I immediately knew Disney World was a place I would have to bring my child one day. When my son turned 3, I took him for his first visit. I wanted everything to be perfect. It was during the planning process (which took hours and hours of research!) that I realized how much work visiting Disney could be. For my son’s second trip, I found Lisa with MCT and booked the next two years of trips with MCT! My love for Disney continued to grow with each trip. Seeing the magic through my son’s eyes always brought pixie dust to mine! I then became a part of Mouse Class Travel’s team, a dream come true, and now I bring magic to our clients' vacations too!

Theme Parks & Experiences

I am a homeschooling mom of two children. My first visit to Walt Disney World was with my sister when I was an adult. I loved it so much I immediately began following everything Disney and even built fake itineraries for fun! I didn’t get to return to Disney World until almost 10 years later after I was married. My husband and I took our then 3-year-old daughter. Shortly after that, I became the go-to for friends and family as I helped plan magical vacations. My biggest trip was my family with 21 cousins from different parts of the country! Now, working with MCT to build clients’ personal plans is literally a dream come true. I help clients understand what’s available and together we build a dream wishlist for their vacation. Through Disney Genie, we master the parks and get clients through their wishlist seamlessly each and every day!

I fell in love with Walt Disney World when I was ten years old. This was my first trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. The memories I made here would stay with me forever. I knew when I had children I wanted them to have the same, wonderful experience I had as a child. Flash forward twenty-eight years and four children later… Disney is our Home away from Home! We became DVC members and Annual Passholders. We are blessed to get to vacation at WDW four to five times a year. In October 2018- I even got to marry my best friend of fifteen years, in the most picturesque place, Disney World. "Even miracles take a little time." -- Fairy Godmother... I am blessed to be a stay-at-home mom, to four beautiful children, and so fortunate to work for a Magical Company like Mouse Class Travel. I get to do what I love on a daily basis- bringing magic and pixie dust to other families! I bring my enthusiasm and unique love for Disney to help create the perfect Disney Vacation!!!

Hi! My name is Shannon and I live with my husband, and daughter in Hershey, Pennsylvania. (Yes, some days the streets really do smell like chocolate!) My parents took my brother and me on our first trip to Walt Disney World when I was seven years old and I absolutely loved it! It’s hard to believe, but they were actually just building Hollywood Studios (MGM at the time) when we were there! I still have very fond memories of Walt Disney World from that trip. Now that I have a family of my own, we enjoy traveling together a lot and have been to Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and on the Disney Cruise Line to the Caribbean and Alaska along with many other memorable destinations around the world. Some of the most fun parts for me of traveling are researching and planning the trips and seeing the joy on my daughter’s face when she gets to experience a new place. There is really nothing though like experiencing the magic of Disney through a child’s eyes! Being able to help others experience the awe and wonder of Disney destinations without them having to worry about the small details is just as exciting to me as planning my own trip. I am thrilled to be able to help others create their own memories to last a lifetime.

Cruises and Land Destinations Outside Theme Parks

I am a proud firefighter wife and mom of two amazing girls! I have loved Disney for my ENTIRE life and am lucky to have visited many times as a child growing up! I knew when I had children I would want to share my love of all things Disney with them. In 2018, Lisa helped me plan a surprise trip for my daughter’s 8th birthday. It was the start of an amazing friendship because that’s what you get when you book with MCT, friends. I continued to book vacations and Disney Cruises with them over the years. When the opportunity came for me to join the team, I was excited about the chance. With extensive experience aboard Disney Cruise ships and visiting multiple destinations, including Disney's private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, plus multiple visits to Disney World, I apply my knowledge to make magical vacations for others.

Disney World and Disneyland Dining and Experiences

My love for Disney started early in life when my parents would take me and my brother for frequent visits. As a teenage exchange student, I visited Disneyland Paris. During my time as a legal professional, my husband I were engaged in front of Cinderella's Wishing Well! After we had children, while teaching at a local college, I decided it was time for our children's first visit. The amazement and wonder in their eyes on their first visit are memories we will always cherish! I found Lisa and MCT in 2018, and two vacations later with MCT, my family has always been amazed at the personalization and detail in their plans. I am very excited and honored to be part of this wonderful team. The entire team works together and strives for each family to create their own unique magic. Seeing photos and messages from happy clients brings me so much joy!

Recently, I was blessed with the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom to my two young kids after spending years as a physical therapist helping patients recover from neurological conditions. Our family made Disney vacations a huge part of our lives, so much so I have lost count of the number of times we have been to Walt Disney World. We have also experienced Disneyland Aulani in Hawaii, and have sailed on multiple Disney Cruises. There is always something new, exciting, or different to experience so it never feels like the same vacation twice! I have always loved the planning process for our trips, and now I share the joy of helping plan trips for others. I feel just as excited to find a client those impossible dining reservations as I do for my own trips!

Before becoming a stay-at-home mom to 3 children, I spent years working in a law firm where I developed an ability to multi-task and coordinate calendars and to-do lists of multiple people. My skills now allow me to shine today as a Magical Planner at Mouse Class Travel! We booked our first Disney trip as a family of 5 with MCT in 2019 and I was blown away by their attention to detail and commitment to magic. We spent our whole trip immersed in Disney without a single worry about logistics. I was so impressed that I booked a second trip and now am a member of their team! What I am excited about most is that I now have a hand in creating the same Disney magic for others that I experienced as a client.

I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my wife and my 18-year-old son. I am extremely passionate about Disney, Food, Music, and Everything Irish. My top three favorite Disney characters (I can't have just one!) are Ariel, Merida, and Belle - they are my spirit animals. I have been lucky enough to visit both parks at Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, but my heart is always with Disney World, where I have been able to visit more times than I can count. For me, every visit is always more magical than the last and I always find something new to experience each time. I love that Disney is the reason for so many of my amazing memories with my family. I found the Mouse Class Travel team early last year and they helped me plan two incredible trips with my family I knew that I wanted to be a part of this amazing team too! I’m the person that all my friends and family reach out to when they are planning vacations because they want to know where I think that they should eat (or not eat!) or what they should do (or skip!) to make it the best trip possible. Being a part of the planning process at MCT is so exciting because now I now get to share my experience with so many more people than I ever could before. Seeing the joy and smiles on clients' faces makes me so happy to spread the magic of Disney!
