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 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.
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!!
Destinations with Character is wonderful! They booked a perfect Disney vacation for my mom, grandmother, my daughter and myself. They also have booked a cruise for my husband, daughter and myself. They are so knowledgeable on everything travel related and if they doesn’t have an answer, they go above and beyond to find the answer for you. Highly recommend booking with Destinations with Character Travel !
