Dream Designer at Dreams by Design Travel
Brandi, her husband, Brad, and son Tyson, age 9, love The Walt Disney World Resort and feel like it's their home away from home. They honeymooned at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge in 2006. In 2014, Brandi was a Round 3 finalist for the Disney Parks Moms Panel. She loves answering questions, planning and researching. It comes naturally to her because she’s also an Elementary Library Media Specialist in her home state of Georgia.
