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!

A Wishes Agent and a Disney Engagement!

By: Allison Flynn with Kayla Johnson A Disney proposal wasn’t on Kayla Johnson’s mind when her family traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort for Thanksgiving in 2013. Because her family always travels together, it didn’t occur to her that something magical might be afoot. “We had a great two days at the parks,” Kayla said. “It was not really crowded and we just did our own thing.” Kayla’s mom, who was working in Orlando, met up...
