Brenda Ward, Vacation Planner
Brenda believes in the magic of Disney. This magic spreads from Disney's worldwide conservation efforts, to world class quality vacation destinations, to the world of pixie dust and fairy tales. Dreams do come true.
At 13 years old Brenda traveled with her family to Walt Disney World for the first time. As a freshman at the University of Kansas, where she earned a degree in psychology, she was thrilled to get the opportunity to work as a cast member at the most magical place on Earth. During her Spring 1994 College Program Internship she worked at various food locations in Future World at EPCOT, including the Fountain View-Starbucks. Her favorite memory during her program was volunteering at Give Kids the World Village where children with critical illnesses stay with their families during their Disney vacation.
Brenda loves to travel to Disney destinations with her husband and four children. Their children have been raised with Disney being a part of their everyday lives. They have traveled to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland and have enjoyed cruising with the Disney Cruise Line. She has also experienced many special events with Disney such as runDisney races, VIP park tours, a fireworks cruise, Halloween and Christmas parties, D23 expo and much more.
Brenda is thrilled to be part of the goMagic team. Her attention to detail and her personalized vacation service will help create memories to last a lifetime.
Brenda's Favorite Tips
Walt Disney World
Plan some "down time" during your vacation to relax. There are plenty of things to do at Walt Disney World from early morning until late at night. Return to your Disney resort in the afternoon to rest or relax by the pool. When you are refreshed and recharged more adventure and experiences will be waiting for you.
There are special event buses to transport you from your Disney resort to the start location of your race. Traffic can get heavy before a race. Catch an early bus to make sure you have plenty of time to reach your start corral, with a little extra time to warm up with the pre-race entertainment. Don't forget to stop along the race route to take some memorable pictures with special characters.
Disney Imagineers and Artists have blended the impression of Mickey into Disney attractions, hotels, restaurants, and other areas for you to find. There are thousands of Hidden Mickeys placed throughout Disney destinations. They are usually present in the form of three circles creating Mickey's head and ears. It's a fun scavenger hunt for children and adults.
