“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.” – Mary Anne Radmacher
Hello. My name is Miranda and I’m a travel-holic…
When I was a little girl, I knew what I wanted to be… I wanted to work for Walt Disney. There are pictures of me in kindergarten, holding my “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up” poster, complete with pictures of Mickey Mouse. Through the years, I had the standard naysayers who told me a little girl from Kentucky wasn’t going to work for Disney. Then, of course, there was the shocking realization that I would never be able to work for Walt Disney as he died in 1966 (minor details). However, I was not deterred!
When I was 20 years old, I fulfilled my dream by working as a Cast Member at Walt Disney World. I spent a semester in Orlando, Florida, as a part of the Disney College Program. It was an amazing experience, but after a few months I returned home to finish my degree in psychology.
Somewhere along the line, I got wrapped up in “adulting.” I went on to get my graduate degree in psychology and began working in psychiatric research. I worked on academic papers and took extra classes. I enjoyed these things (and still do), but nothing seems to match the excitement of traveling to new places and visiting old favorites.
Back in 2015, I decided to put my love of Disney and traveling to good use – I became a travel agent! Initially, I only focused on Disney destinations, but over time I’ve expanded to include a variety of options including cruising, all-inclusive resorts, and popular international sites and cities. The agency I work for, Magical Moments Vacations, has been recognized as one of the top agencies in the country by Disney, Universal, Royal Caribbean, Sandals/Beaches, AM Resorts, and many more.
Under Trip Reports, I talk about my travels and past adventures. You’ll also find advice for those traveling both with and without kids, along with general vacation tips and hints.
