My name is Colin Hile and I currently call the Great Lakes state home with my fiancé! After college, I left Michigan to live in Florida for 7 years. Calling Orlando and then the Tampa Bay region home. During my time in Florida I worked with the Walt Disney Co. and I created magic at the Magic Kingdom and Grand Floridian resort. While in Florida you best believe i took advantage of every travel opportunity I could. From going on cruises, traveling to Florida destination towns, and of course visiting the several theme parks and events! My hope is to build a connection with any client I work and to share my previous travel experiences to make your future travels a breeze. I will use all my tidbit information I’ve learned and show you how make the most out of your dream vacation! I am beyond excited to be part of the Destination with Character team and can’t wait for my opportunity to speak with you!
I currently live in the quaint shoreline town of Mystic, CT with my husband Wayne and two boys, William and Jordan. Before settling here We lived all over the US and in Hawaii before my husband retired from the Navy. I love to travel and am a frequent visitor of Walt Disney World and was even lucky enough to visit Disneyland in Tokyo a few times. While living in Waikiki, on the island of Oahu for three years, I was able to experience the history and culture of the Hawaiian islands and became very familiar with all that these beautiful islands have to offer. I would love to help you plan the island vacation of your dreams!
I am a lifelong Disney fan and I enjoy helping my clients and friends to plan dream vacations and make memories that will last a lifetime. I am very familiar with the parks, resorts and restaurants at Disney World and the Disneyland resort (and also knowledgeable about the Southern California area and attractions, having lived in San Diego). From booking your vacation, to taking care of dining plans, special events, fast passes and any other details to make your trip special, I am there every step of the way to make sure your vacation is as magical and memorable as possible.
We are Ken and Nikki Dangman, and we are a Disney loving family! I (Nikki) grew up going to Disney, Universal Studios, and Sea World as part of my family vacations every summer of my life. Once we were married, we knew we wanted to share Disney with our own kids. We have two boys that have been going to Disney every year since they were 2 and 18 months old. After our first trip, Ken realized how good I was at planning because we never waited more than 20 minutes for anything, and we had traveled at Christmas time too! We rode all the popular rides multiple times and went to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! From there, our family was hooked. We have traveled to most major parts of Florida and cruised to The Bahamas. Currently, we average about two vacations a year. We try to travel and experience all Disney has to offer across the country. Our family has experienced different resorts and have done the dining plan multiple times. We have flown and we have driven to Florida. Over the years, we have experienced many Early Magic hour events, After Hour events, tours, etc. We have even done Disney without our kids, and it was amazing! Our different experiences can be very valuable in helping to plan your trip. I study all things “Disney” on the side, and have been helping family and friends plan vacations for years now. We thought it was a great opportunity to put our passion to good use and join the ranks of the official vacation planners. We look forward to the opportunity to help plan a memorable vacation for you.

I have been obsessed with travel for as long as I can remember, and strive to keep my knowledge and experiences current, as to better help my clients!! When I signed on in October 2017, I didn’t know I would be truly discovering my passion!

Welcome! My name is Susanne Kaluzinski and I have been a travel agent for the last 8+ years. I am also a full-time project manager, wife, and mother to 3! I started being a travel agent when I saw close friends try to book their magical Disney vacations without knowing the parks, resorts or any tips and tricks. I knew so much from visiting Disney several times a year with my family, and I knew I could help clients have the most magical time.
Over the last 8 years I have grown my business into more than just booking Disney. I have specialized in all of Disney (Including Disneyworld/Disneyland/Disneyland Paris), Universal, Sandals, Cruises, All-inclusive and I continue to learn more and more! My main goal is to ensure that I am at the top of my game, staying on top of new suppliers and offers as well as always providing the best customer service for my clients from the start of just talking about a vacation all the way through hearing about how great their trip went. I am very thankful to be a part of the Destinations with Character Travel Services and can’t wait to help plan your next adventure.
Hello! So glad you stopped by!
I’m Tanya, a retired officer that has been blessed to return to my first loves: Disney, travelling and photography! As a child, I loved to travel. That passion has followed me through the years and has been the driving force for my ability to focus on the individual client’s needs while helping plan everything from honeymoons to business trips to family vacations. I can help clients navigate booking hotels/resorts, cruises and transportation.
My hope is to build lasting client relationships by providing the best travel experience. Whether planning travels based on a fixed budget or the sky’s the limit, I’ll do all I can to ensure your travel dreams come true. I’m so excited to be a part of the Destinations with Character Services Team!
Hello, I am Maryanne Walsh, an avid traveler and Disney Cruise addict. I’ve had a professional career in business/finance, with a passion for travel. Planning my own trips has always been a lot of fun and I can spend hours researching destinations. I was brainstorming my dream career path with my husband, and I couldn’t get travel agent out of my head. I took advantage of a great opportunity and joined Destinations With Character to become an official vacation planner. I’ve had many visits to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens Tampa, Universal Orlando, along with 2 Royal Caribbean Cruises, and 3 Disney Cruises. I have also extensively traveled to Europe, visiting the major cities in Europe, and done 2 group guided hiking trips in Europe. In addition, I have spent time in Canada, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean. I’d love to help you plan a memorable vacation!

I’ve used Destinations with Character Travel Services for all of my vacation needs for years! From a full Disney World vacation, to a quick overnight trip, they’ve been amazing at helping us out! Their staff always finds us the best deals and the service is second to none! If you’re looking for a great travel agency who will make your trip special, look no further than Destinations with Character Travel!
We have used Destinations with Character Travel Services several years in a row. Although my family knows Disney World well, they know it better! It is great to have someone to call when we need help planning and to find the bargains for us. Relax and let them do the planning. Highly, highly recommended!
Planned our Disney vacation for a large group of ten people with people leaving and coming at different points.
Taught me how to navigate a digital Disney world. Even went in and did things for our group. Had me managing everyone from hotel visits to lighting lanes. Found us transportation to and from everywhere and scheduled us a day at universal with travel to and from. We also had a baby and booster seats/ car seats were always set up.
Helped me every step of the way. Thanks for everything!!
Amber is wonderful! She booked a perfect Disney vacation for my mom, grandmother, my daughter and myself. She also has booked a cruise for my husband, daughter and myself. She is so knowledgeable on everything travel related and if she doesn’t have an answer, she goes above and beyond to find the answer for you. Highly recommend booking with Amber!
I am a seasoned Walt Disney World traveler. I could book my own trip but everything is so much better now that I work with the team from Destinations with Character. They do all of the heavy lifting, book everything I need and gave me wonderful suggestions for our trips. If I wanted to do some planning on my own they still acted as a wonderful support system. It is wonderful to have people who love Disney and traveling as much as I do. Their knowledge made our last couple of trips amazing. They pick up their phone and answer all emails immediately. Their attention to detail and personal service puts them a step above any other travel agents that I have worked with in the past.
