Rebecca Schwesig    Visit Rebecca's Page
     Hi! My name is Rebecca Schwesig, and I’m from St. Louis, Missouri. My love affair with Disney began at a very young age when my family lived just minutes from Disneyland in California. I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember.  As an adult I’ve formed a new appreciation for Disney after seeing it through the eyes of my children. I just can’t get enough – we find ourselves going back year after year!  I feel very lucky to have a wonderful husband and two daughters who share my enthusiasm.
     I didn’t start my career in the travel business; in fact, I’m a former high school art teacher. But after several years helping family and friends plan vacations to the “Happiest Place on Earth,” I knew I’d found a calling!

Tiffany Holmes
     Tiffany’s love for Disney started when she first visited Walt Disney World at age four and has continued to grow ever since. She has appreciated Disney as a child, teen, young adult, newlywed, and now she especially enjoys her trips as a mother.  After majoring in Hospitality and Resort Management at the University of Memphis, she spent a semester working as an intern at Walt Disney World where she discovered the only thing better than experiencing the magic herself, is sharing it with others! During her internship, she had the privilege of working at several Disney hotels, including Disney’s Polynesian Resort, Grand Floridian, Contemporary, and Coronado Springs.  

     After college, Tiffany got engaged at Cinderella Castle and has continued to visit year after year. Luckily, her husband shares her Disney obsession and doesn’t mind making the trip from their home in Memphis, Tennessee. She has been on two Disney cruises, made two trips to Disneyland, and taken countless trips to Walt Disney World. She likes to keep up with what’s happening throughout the Disney Company at all times and wants to be the first to know about any new attractions. Tiffany has been to Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival in the spring and the Food and Wine Festival in the fall. She has also been a guest at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party as well as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Julie Miller
     Julie Miller visited Disney for the first time at age 7!  When she was in college her Spring Break trips were to Disneyworld while others headed to the beach. After marrying her college sweetheart of 4 years they returned every year to Disney until they had their first child, Abby. Abby’s first trip to DisneyWorld was at 4 years old and almost every year since that time. Her second child, Xander, had his first trip and thus the tradition was continued to the next generation. As a high school secondary English teacher in rural Tennessee, Julie told her husband she wanted to bring her students to Disney and that is exactly what happened! The first Senior Trip to DisneyWorld for Livingston Academy in Livingston, Tn, began in 2001 and has continued without stopping. Each year she takes 130-170 students and teachers on a magic filled trip of a lifetime! 

“My passion for Disney is something well known at my school and with my students! I have been planning vacations for anyone that asks for years, so now I am going to have a wonderful opportunity to continue doing what I love. I tell my students ‘A SUCCESSFUL VACATION IS A WELL PLANNED VACATION.’ I look forward to continuing my knowledge and growing with Magical Travel and Disney opportunities!”    

     Julie lives in Cookeville, TN, with her husband Jon, and her two children Abby and Xander. She remains a full time English teacher, but I look forward to helping all my friends, old and new, as they begin their journey to experience the magic that is a Disney Vacation!

Where it all began......
Denise Hafto
     Denise Hafto’s travel agent experience started in a local travel agency where she learned about the travel industry from the ground up. But, her love of Disney started well before she started in the travel industry.   Wanting to bring the two together she created Magical Travel.  She knew going to a Disney Destination was not always the least expensive vacation a family could take.  Magical Travel became the first online Disney Travel Agency to offer Disney Dollars to clients.  It is important to Denise that her clients receive the best value for their money. Helping clients plan their Disney vacations is definitely her Dream Job!
     Denise is a former Disney Cast Member, a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge,
Florida Specialist, Bahamas Specialist and a United States Virgin Islands Specialist.  Denise and her family travel to a Disney Destination many times throughout the year. She lives with her family in Pennsylvania.
