Hello there!

I was born and raised in Louisiana. After marrying my husband, we ventured off to Wisconsin where we lived for 6 years. We have now relocated back to our roots in Louisiana. I have been married for 10 years and have a daughter. My daughter shares all the same Disney love as I do!

I have a big love for all things travel, food, and Disney! I went to Walt Disney World Resort when I was 5 years old with my family and I believe that’s where my love for Disney began. Once I had my daughter, my love for Disney grew even more. We love Walt Disney World vacations! We are also huge beach, mountain and hiking lovers. Going on trips with family and friends, in my opinion, is one of the best ways to re-connect and make new memories together. What I love so much about Disney is that every single time we take a trip, we have brand new adventures and experiences as there is so much to see and do!

I have a passion for planning trips. I have always been the person who has a list of what to pack and an itinerary ready to go for any vacation. I love helping to create magical memories and moments for people to experience.


I am a graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge and a Universal Orlando Resort Specialist.  I can also assist with vacations for Sandals & Beaches Resorts as well as Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Virgin Voyages, and Hawaii vacations.  I have earned my World of Hyatt Inclusive Confidant Certificate and ALGV Pro certificate.

Hannah is absolutely amazing at planning your perfect family trip! I hadn’t been to Disney World since I was 7 years old so I was clueless about MagicBands, lightening lanes, monorails, MemoryMakers, etc. Hannah planned out our entire trip from what times to wake up to purchase lightening lanes for what rides, where to eat, what rides to ride and when, and when to head back to the hotel for rest! She was an absolute Godsend. I would have been lost, anxious, and defeated if it wasn’t for her help. Disney World can be so overwhelming for “newbies.” If I had a question about something, she answered it within 5 minutes of me texting her. We had the best time because of the effort and thoughtfulness she put into our trip. ❤️❤️❤️ Courtney

Hannah's Favorites


Walt Disney World ~  

  • Magic Kingdom – there is absolutely nothing like arriving to Magic Kingdom and walking down Main Street and smelling the Main Street Confectionery, the perfect view of the castle and having the Dapper Dans singing and dancing along as you walk. It is such a unique experience, and it never gets old. My favorite ride in Magic Kingdom would have to be a toss up between Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Under the Sea.

  • Epcot – what is there not to love about Epcot?! We love walking through the countries and seeing all the beautiful different country pavilions and trying tasty new treats along the way. One of my absolute must-dos is stopping by Norway to the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe and enjoying their classic School Bread, its delicious! My favorite ride in Epcot would be Frozen Ever After.

  • Hollywood Studios – hands down Toy Story Land is my favorite part of Hollywood Studios! From Slinky Dog Rollercoaster to Woody’s Lunchbox for a snack, it is a fantastic place to be!

  • Animal Kindgom – everything about Animal Kindgom is stunning. My favorite ride would be the Navi Journey Ride and my favorite snack is at the Pongu Pongu stand where I always have to get a Night Blossom frozen drink and Pongu Lumpia for a sweet treat!

  • Character Dining! I mean, you can never be too old for character dining, right? Whether it be a dining experience in the parks of at one of the resorts, character dining is always a favorite of mine.

Universal Orlando Resort ~  

  • Universal Island of Adventure - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is very immersive! My favorite ride is Hagrids Moterbike Adventure! My favorite snack would be a ButterBeer!

  • Universal Studios - My favorite ride at this fun park would be the all nostalgic E.T. adventure ride! The smells, the interesting queue you wait in leading up to the ride are all quite exciting!
