My Background

Marlene has been fascinated by all things Disney for as far back as she can remember. 

Marlene has traveled to Disney resorts and aboard Disney Cruise Line® by herself, with small children, with teenagers, and with other adults. She has visited during peak times as well as during regular and off-peak times. She’s well versed in all the information necessary to help you plan and enjoy the vacation you’ve looked forward to for so long.

Whatever your Disney dream is, Marlene can make it a reality.

We just returned from our 3rd Disney vacation that Marlene booked and planned for us. We really enjoy working with Marlene. Her knowledge and experience with Disney vacations can not be beat. There is never a question she cannot answer. Book your next dream Disney vacation with Marlene. You will have a worry free and very enjoyable experience with her step by step guide for each day of your visit. We are already dreaming about our next visit in 2014.

Once again, Marlene's expertise made our vacation very relaxing and enjoyable.  Every trip we have made to a Disney on-property resort we have booked with Marlene.  She knows Disney inside and out and leaves no stone unturned to help plan your vacation so you do not have to worry about the details. We can't wait for our next visit.  And you can bet we will be calling Marlene to help us with our next adventure!

Marlene is an incredible Disney travel planner. She has every detail available and we look forward to our travel package always.

Made our Disney "dream" vacation a reality

I'm a grandmother now and the last time we had been to Disney, my children were small. So it was high time to take our whole family including our two granddaughters who are 7 and 5 to the happiest place on earth. But "we're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy" and things have changed so much the thought of planning this vacation scared me to pieces. So I found my own fairy godmother, Marlene, who expertly planned our magical trip down to the smallest detail. All we had to do was show up. She was an amazing resource and quick to respond to all my novice questions. I highly recommend her to anyone planning a trip to Disney.

Fantastic trip

I can't say enough about everything Marlene did for us. She made the trip truly Magic! This was my first time back to Disney after 20 years and my daughters first time ever. I had no idea what to see, where to eat or where to stay. She arranged everything and offered great advice. Everything was perfect. The places we ate and all the attractions she recommended we loved. The hotel was absolutely perfect for us. The entire trip was planned with very little effort from me. She made planning this trip so easy especially with my busy work life. It was a pleasure working with Marlene and I intend to work with her again on any future trips my family takes. We never thought that we would plan a trip back to Disney, but because of how smoothly it went and the amount of fun we had, we are actually thinking about going back again. I'm so glad my friend recommended Marlene to us!!!!! Thank you!

Incredibly knowledgeable!

I have never worked with someone before to plan a trip and Marlene came highly recommended from an acquaintance. From the beginning she asked questions and made it her goal to create the best trip for our family. Her wealth of knowledge about places to stay, dine and what attractions to see (and in what order) was amazing! She was organized and her experience speaks for itself. The restaurant choices were amazing! My family and I had a wonderful time and I can only hope that my kids remember our vacation as a magical experience, as I did Disney in my childhood. Much thanks to Marlene!

Have nothing but the best to say about Marlene Patrick. She answered all our questions we had and took care of all our needs. Have recommended her to other people and will continue to recommend her to others. If you had a point scale I would give her 10 out of 10.

Insightful, detail-oriented Disney expert!

Marlene was wonderful to work with. She took care of all the details to make our trip perfect and magical. She worked with us through the whole process, hyper-aware of deadlines we surely would have missed. Helped us identify accommodations that were ideal for our large family. She even assured a deep clean on my room for my son, who has a peanut dust allergy, as well as ensured all restaurants were aware. In all the excitement of the trip, it was so comforting to know that I was not alone in preparation. I would highly recommend Marlene. She knows everything about Disney and can match you with your Disney needs, even before you know they are offered. Disney can be overwhelming, especially during peak times, so it is helpful to know how to navigate it all, expertly.

Excellent service

Marlene did a phenomenal job planning our entire trip. I didn't have to book a meal and she hit the fast passes on the head based on our age groups. Always available for any question from start to finish. Thanks again!

Working with Marlene is always a pleasure! We've been to Walt Disney World many times and she has always books our trips. Marlene's attention to detail is unmatched. She's always got a new experience for us to explore since we've been to Florida numerous times. Stress-free and enjoyable would be the best words to describe our latest vacation. We didn't have to think about anything because Marlene handled it all. We can't wait for her to plan our next adventure.

Disney Done Right

Marlene is amazing. This is the 4th time we've used her. She custom fits the trip to whatever your needs might be. Her suggestions are right on target. She stays on task with fast passes and dinner reservations and comes though with incredible results.She always responds to a communication immediately and is accommodating in every way, even if it means changing previously made plans. She is a 5 star Disney agent.

Working with Marlene has been great! We have been to Disney several times in the past few years and Marlene always treats each trip like it is our first with something new and exciting to experience. She fields all of my questions, which can be tiresome some days 😊 but always responds timely and with a smile. Marlenes attention to detail is one of the many reasons I enjoy working with her. She makes vacation planning fun and exciting and me and my family consider her a friend.

I’d highly recommend Marlene for any trip Disney or Non-Disney. She has planned 2 fully turn-key high energy jam packed Disney trips and a San Francisco trip for my family- all with flawless attention to detail. She’s super knowledgeable, very thorough, and goes above and beyond for her clients.

Disney Cruise 2018

Reviewed on: 22 Nov 2018

This is the second time we’ve worked with Marlene. From the very first she made the process very smooth for us and stress free. She learned about our kids and their interests and processed everything for us according to their tastes. Working with her feels as if you’re talking with a family member. She’s a thorough professional who personalizes our vacation and does not waste any time answering questions or booking things. For example when Disney Cruise was going to open their online booking at 12 midnight on a certain day- Marlene had mentioned that day and time to us. We logged in at midnight and started working on it. Meanwhile, Marlene was trying to log in to book things for us at the same time as well😊. We always feel that our bases are covered when she’s helping us.
