IF I'M GOING TO SPEND ALL THIS TIME + MONEY, I WANT IT TO BE an awesome VACATION

HONESTLY? I'm WORRIED I'LL DISAPPOINT MY KIDS

It's a myth that planning for Disney World  has to be                   

I KNOW BECAUSE I FELT THE SAME AS YOU

When my daughter was born, I searched the internet for an easy-to-follow "planning guide"

...just to be bombarded with conflicting advice, cheesy blogs with outdated information, and overwhelming Facebook groups.

Hours would go by and I'd think: "did I even learn anything??"

You don't need a magic wand. The real problem? The information you need isn't in one place, is hard to find, and always changing.

stressful.

Even though I had been going to the parks for years, every time we went there was some new change, I felt like I could never keep up.

...but most people don't do that. They get to the park and wonder why the lines seem so long, or why they can't eat at any sit-down restaurant.

GONE ARE THE DAYS OF JUST "SHOWING UP" AND HAVING A GOOD TIME.

Early Entry, Advanced Dining Reservations, park reservations, virtual queues, "rope dropping", the Lightning Lane, park hopping, Genie+...

The truth is this: everything has changed since when we were kids.

FAQS

What happens after I join? Is this a subscription?

It all starts with an email and password - this will be your unique login and give you access to Laid-back Magic and brings you to your dashboard. 

This is NOT a subscription. You'll only be charged 2 or 3 times depending on the plan you choose, then you'll have access forever.

I already booked my trip. Will this still help me?

Sure! I'd skip over Chapter 1 and continue on. This will still help you with dining reservations, learning Disney World's transportation, and especially all the videos on using Genie+.

Are you an agent? Can you book my trip for me?

I'm not a travel agent or affiliated with an agency. In the first chapter, I do touch on how to find an agent you vibe with and what to know before you fill out a quote!

While this isn't a 1:1 service, you will have extra support through the community built within Laid-back Magic; it was designed to you make sure your trip is vacation is 100% ready to go.

How long will I have access to everything?

Forever. (Really.)

Can't I figure this stuff out on my own?

You most definitely can. That's what I've done for years until I thought "enough is enough" when I couldn't even read certain blogs from all the ads blocking my way. 

Laid-back Magic is ad and affiliate free. No gate-keeping. No hacks. Just all the information you need to know - nothing you don't.

let's make this "planning stuff" fun, shall we??

The reason you're feeling overwhelmed is the same reason I did when I first started planning our family trips: because the advice feels endless.

But like all your other jobs - mother, personal chef, playdate coordinator - you are the best person to plan your vacation. Not me, not a travel agent, not your Disney-loving friend (bless her), just you. 

Here's my big secret: your vacation isn't going to be *magical* because of where you're going, it's because your family is going to make it that way. 

And when you DO get overwhelmed, I'll be here to help. If you have a question, just ask. Because my superpower is knowing not only my family - but the most magical place on Earth, too. 

I believe planning for Walt Disney World can be thoughtful,                  ...even inspiring.

These aren’t just memories for your kids, they’re YOUR memories, too.

You’re going to look at that picture of them covered in chocolate (did you even give them chocolate?) and I'll bet big money you’re NOT going to say “man, I regret that trip.”

That Disney World can be enjoyable for everyone in the family.


I believe you're the best person to plan your vacation because you know your family. Not the internet, not me.

Setting an intention and asking yourself "would this make my trip worthwhile?" can take you from overwhelm to crystal clear planning.

The key to a "perfect" vacation is different for every family.
