My name is Denise Stufflebeam, and I am here to take care of the details of your trip. With my 20 years of travel agent experience (over eight years with 3D Travel) I will help you get the most out of your cruise, all-inclusive vacation, or visit to the Disney parks.
So... who am I, how in the world did I get here, and what can I do to help you have a wonderful vacation?
My first Disney visit was on family vacation when Disneyland® Resort was the only Disney destination and had only been around for about 10 years (and I was even younger!). After college, my love of travel led to a career as a travel agent. As a leisure agent booking cruises, tours, and airline tickets, I relished finding good deals for clients. During 12 years as a full-time travel agent, the whole world beckoned with travels far and wide, including two trips to Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida.
While planning that Walt Disney World trip, an invitation to join the 3D Travel team dropped in my lap, and with the kids getting older, the timing seemed right to jump back into the travel business, this time specializing in Disney destinations, numerous cruises, and Sandals and Beaches Resorts. Whether on a family trip or on a training trip, I have enjoyed exploring and checking out the four Florida theme parks, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Downtown Disney® Area, many wonderful restaurants, many of the resorts, Disney Cruise Line® ships. I have continued my training with numerous visits to Walt Disney World® Resort, two trips to Disneyland® Resort, cruises on the Disney Wonder®, Disney Dream™, and a tour of the Disney Magic®. I've also completed training with numerous cruise lines and with Sandals and Beaches all-inclusive Caribbean resorts.
Specializing in Disney vacations gives me the wonderful 'chore' of checking out different things at Walt Disney World® Resort, continually learning more to help you have the most magical trip ever! The many decisions involved in a Disney trip can be overwhelming, but I can help you with all the choices, and make your planning a breeze! I can also help you with a cruise on Disney Cruise Line®, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Holland America, and many others.
I would love to put my attention to detail and my travel experience to work for YOUR family planning a vacation for you at any time of year.
