Hi there! This is Dina from my native State of California!
I am very excited and honored to be included in the Marvelous Mouse Travels team! By being a Vacation Planner with MMT, I am able to showcase my love and immense knowledge for Disney by creating memorable and magical experiences for you and your family.
My magical journey with Disney began in the mid-1960’s, when I was just 18 months old. Disneyland was still in its infant stages of unleashing the joyful child within millions of their guests. I was so fortunate to experience this nostalgic and magical place, every year with my parents, sisters and grandmothers. I reveled at the stories from my dad on his first visit soon after Disneyland opened, as he walked through the orange groves to reach the front gates. As well as my grandmother, who was a first-grade school teacher and was inspired when creating her classroom pegboards by Mary Blair, the artist best known for her amazing art contribution to “It’s a Small World”. Every Sunday night, I couldn’t wait to sit down with my family and watch “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color”. I also LOVED watching the Mickey Mouse Club re-runs! I so wanted to become a Mouseketeer!
The tradition of my Disney magical travels has continued since then with 50+ years of visits, every one of them memorable. One especially was when my husband and I celebrated my 30th Birthday while I was six months pregnant with my son. I actually consider this visit as my son’s first. Now as of 2020, I’m a grandmother to the sweetest baby boy, and can’t wait to experience his first Disney adventure, along with many more!
I have 25+ years of experience in the Hospitality Industry within Hotel Convention Sales and Food & Beverage/Catering Sales. I have created and managed travel arrangements, and small/large group catering events within the Corporate and Social markets. My business and personal travels have brought me to so many wonderful places within the States (including the Hawaiian Islands), Europe, and the Caribbean Islands. In addition, and most important of all – Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Aulani – a Disney Resort & Spa in Oahu.
With my extensive Disney experiences, graduating from the College of Disney Knowledge, and keeping up with Disney’s current events and promotions, creating a MEMORABLE and MAGICAL Disney vacation is just moments away!
Let’s start planning!!
