Hey friend, I’m Val!

I am the owner and founder of Val’s Magical Life, and I’m thrilled you’re here!

I’m here to share a little bit about me and why I started this blog. Growing up in Florida, my love for Disney World and all things magical started from a very young age. I adored the Disney magic so much I pursued a Hospitality & Tourism Degree and made my dream of working for Disney World come true as soon as I could.

My first role at Disney was a Vacation Planner. Here, I learned how to find the right-fit tickets for each individual party’s Disney World vacation to be magical, became an expert in attractions, shows, dining, and more, and learned how to build the perfect customized Disney World itinerary. Here, I also met the love of my life, my amazing husband; talk about a fairytale come true!

From Vacation Planning, I grew into a new role with Disney in Guest Correspondence. Here, I communicated with guests after their Disney World vacations to accept their feedback and provide personalized guidance. This role allowed me to learn the biggest mistakes guests make in planning their Disney World vacation and the best solutions to ensure the mistakes aren’t repeated on the next trip.

I also had the opportunity to plan Disney World vacations for guests outside of Disney, working as a travel agent. In this role, I was truly able to create customized experiences for my clients, and thoroughly enjoyed planning customized Disney itineraries.

Currently, I live a few minutes away from the magic and visit multiple times a week! My husband and I love Disney Dates and spend most of our date nights at Disney! Having three autoimmune conditions, I’ve also learned how to navigate the parks with a disability using Disney DAS pass (Disney Disability Access Service Pass) too. I truly enjoy experiencing the Disney magic and want you to love it as much as I do! That’s why I create weekly blogs exploring everything Disney and Disney World vacations!

You see, the fact is, planning a Disney World vacation is incredibly complicated and overwhelming these days. However, there are tons of Disney tips and tricks that can help make planning so much easier and stress-free. As an expert Walt Disney World Vacation Planner, my hope is you’ll walk away with confidence planning your Disney World vacation so you can focus on creating magical memories with your loved ones during your visit. Thanks so much for being here!
