A Dream Job Come True
By: Becky Criswell
In the spring of this year I was shopping at a local consignment sale, and while I was looking through the children’s books I overheard someone talking about something near and dear to my heart – DISNEY! Naturally, I inched my way closer as she proceeded to explain some of the newest offerings at Walt Disney World, including the amazing Magic Bands and FastPass+. When she was finished speaking with the potential client, I walked over to her beautifully decorated table to see what it was all about. She gave me her business card and I immediately felt a twinge of excitement. “You help people plan Disney Vacations … you do this for a living??!” I told her this seemed too good to be true and would be my absolute dream job. She encouraged me to visit the Wishes Family Travel web page for more information. As soon as I got home I pulled up the application and sent it in ASAP.
Five months later, I’m writing to tell you how much I love this job. I currently work for Wishes Family Travel as a part-time concierge agent and it is my hope that one day this will be my full-time job. I get to work from home, allowing me to spend time with my 15-month old son, and the “work” does not feel like “work.” I truly enjoy every aspect of the job.
I just returned from a family vacation to Walt Disney World about four weeks ago. Normally I would be going through withdrawals now that my vacation planning is over, however, now I always have more planning to look forward to. I get to plan dream vacations for my clients, helping them choose the perfect resort, the best dining reservations and the most important FastPass+ selections. It is like experiencing the joy of my Disney vacation, over and over again. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me with Wishes Family Travel!
