Method to the Magic

**Please excuse our appearance as we convert this site completely to Method to the Magic to align with our Youtube Channel. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding!***

Planning a Disney Vacation can be fun and exciting but also very stressful. There are so many questions to answer, especially for first timers. Where do you stay? What do you pack? How do you plan your days? Where do you eat? What’s a Magic Band and how do I get a Fastpass?

Don’t worry! Melissa, Jason, and Dave are here to help answer your questions, provide advice, and show you our adventures to help you find your own Method to the Magic of Disney. Each week we share new videos that include restaurant and resort reviews, tips and tricks, and vlogs of our Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line Vacations.

On this website you will also find some content from my previous blog “Child Centered Disney.” Although I decided to discontinue this blog to put more attention toward our YouTube Channel, I wanted to keep some of the evergreen content for those that may be interested in reading it!


Can you just plan my vacation for me? Or help me with specifics?

Actually…. YES! I (Melissa) am a travel specialist with Magical Vacation Planner  (an authorized Disney vacation planner). I can book your vacations for Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani, Adventures by Disney, the Disney Cruise Line, Universal Studios Orlando, Beaches, Sandals and Royal Caribbean Cruise Line and help you plan every step of the way. My services are completely free of charge to you and I will work to find you the best deal possible for your needs and budget. If a promotion applicable to your vacation comes out after you book, I will work to rebook that vacation for you at the better price whenever possible.

I can help recommend resort accommodations, ticket packages, dining reservations, and fastpass+ recommendations as well as assist in itinerary planning for parties with guests of all ages, needs, and interests. The best part about using a travel specialist like me to plan your vacation is that I can take the time and stress out of the booking process. I will get up at the crack of dawn to book your dining reservations or rebook a trip with a promotion so you don’t have to!
