At the beginning of the summer I shared the news that my 19 year career at The Coca-Cola Company had come to a close. I also mentioned that there was a big thing I really wanted but didn’t have much of a chance at getting. Well, I never heard back from that thing. But something else – even more exciting and even more perfect found me – Glass Slipper Concierge.
On June 8, the first work day I missed at Coke, I signed the dotted line to become an independent consultant with Glass Slipper Concierge, an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner!!
Since then I have been working tirelessly, through every trip, vacation, sporting event and all … I kid you not, to officially establish my LLC, write a business plan, figure out how and if Glass Slipper Concierge can work with Dixie Delights, set up my Facebook page, train with my agency owner, meet with my team leader, and so forth and so on. Oh, and perhaps most fun for me, I’ve also now graduated from the College of Disney Knowledge. I cannot wait to frame that diploma right next to Georgia Tech and Georgia State – it is the cutest of the lot :-)
And, thanks to an incredibly supportive network, I’ve booked five vacations to Walt Disney World and two Disney Cruises, as well as trips to the Hermitage in Nashville, The Roosevelt in New Orleans and the Salamander Resort and Spa in Virginia! In a month!!!
Here is my “official bio”…
Amanda grew up traveling to the Walt Disney World® Resort with her family and never grew out of it! In the last five years alone, Amanda has taken over 30 Disney vacations across Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland® Resort, Aulani, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and Disney’s Hilton Head Resort. Specializing in Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line, Amanda has personally stayed at all but one resort on the Walt Disney World Resort property and has cruised five times with Disney Cruise Line.
Amanda makes it her mission to try new and exciting things at Disney destinations on every trip and brings this expertise and experience to her clients. She doesn’t just go to the parks, she is adept at adding extra magic to every trip. From specialty fireworks cruises, date nights with the kids in the Children’s Activity Center, backstage tours, seasonal events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival, to spa treatments, watercraft rentals and dessert parties, Amanda has done it all! She is skilled at planning all types of Disney vacations, from a family of four adventure, to romantic couples getaways, multi-generational extended family reunions, runDisney event weekends, and girls trips.
Amanda is a graduate of Disney’s College of Knowledge, an invited attendee of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, and an established blogger at Dixie Delights. With her attention to detail and Disney knowledge, your Disney vacation experience will be delightful from beginning to end!
I left Coke feeling nervous for what the future holds, but also optimistic about the path forward. I really never dreamed that less than two months later I would be a month into my second career and sharing this news with all of you!!! I am a full-service travel consultant and specialist in selling Disney destinations, including Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, Disneyland, Aulani and Adventures by Disney.
So what does all this mean?!
For Disney, here is an example of how working with me will make the difference between a good vacation and an unforgettable one.
– I work with you to reserve the perfect resort, ticket package and dining plan for your party, and it doesn’t cost any more to use me than it would booking directly!
– I provide a personalized daily itinerary, handle your dining reservations and book your FastPass attractions in Walt Disney World.
– I make suggestions on special and exclusive experiences to make your vacation even more magical, including recreation, VIP tours, events and more.
– I keep an eye on discounts and promotions that might save you money, and automatically re-price your vacation as soon as anything new comes available!

It has been paramount in getting me where I am today both personally and professionally. I have no doubt that, without you, this new endeavor would not have found me.
