Donna Sharick

Hello! My name is Donna Sharick, and I am the owner of Dreams by Design Travel. My love of all things Disney started in 1987 when I won an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney World on a radio station. At the time, my Prince, Joe, and I decided to wait til our two-year-old was four, in 1989. We stayed at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and the Disney seed was planted! I’ve enjoyed over 50+ trips to Walt Disney World Resort, several visits to Disneyland Resort, and 14 cruises on various cruise lines. Most recently, I attended the D23 Expo at Disneyland Resort! I’ve worked for various travel agencies over the years and decided that to provide the best possible care my guests deserve, it was time to open my own agency. I am thrilled to take my experiences and knowledge of traveling with children, ladies-only trips and now empty-nesters, and share it with my guests. My motto is, if you can dream it, I can design it! Donna is a graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge, is also a Universal Orlando Resort Specialist as well as a Certified Sandals Specialist.​
