Thanks for visiting our site! My name is Nicole Emmons, and I am the owner of Starts With A Wish Travel. My love for Disney began with our first trip to Walt Disney World several years ago. I remember watching my boys one night at Magic Kingdom staring up at the fireworks during Wishes. I knew I wanted to make as many Disney memories with them as possible.

Another thing I knew after that first trip was how unprepared we were! We knew nothing about the parades or shows. We didn’t know what a FastPass was, and a Disney cast member even made our dining reservations! We missed so many things because we didn’t know about them. I vowed that I would never be that unprepared again. I became obsessed with reading and studying everything about Walt Disney World and all of the other fabulous Disney vacation options. 

After several more Disney vacations, I found myself helping my friends plan their trips and realized I could make a career doing what I love. So I began working as a travel agent, and in 2014 founded Starts With A Wish Travel.

My goal is to ensure that every one of my clients has a thoughtfully planned out, magical Disney vacation. My clients receive a customized itinerary and touring plan so they are very prepared for each day of their vacation. Disney vacations should be magical for the parents too!

I love helping families plan their Disney vacation. I love seeing pictures of the kids with characters that they love, girls dressed up like their favorite princess and boys dressed up like pirates. I strive to make each family’s vacation as carefree as possible.

There are so many things to consider when planning a Disney vacation and most people don’t have time for all the research required. I would love to use my expertise to help you plan your Disney vacation! I specialize in all Disney destinations. I can also help you with Universal, all cruise lines and all inclusive resort vacations.  

If you would like to schedule a time to talk about your dream Disney vacation you can schedule a Personalized Planning Session.
