Dream Designer at Dreams by Design Travel
Hello! My name is Debbie Hudson, and I am a Dream Designer at Dreams by Design Travel. I have been traveling to Walt Disney World since I was a small child, having grown up in a North Atlanta suburb. My family started visiting Orlando back in 1971 when the Magic Kingdom park first opened. Since then, I have been taking my children (now 19 and 16) since they were 4 and 1. It is never too early to start taking your family to the Walt Disney World Resort! We have stayed at many of the Disney resorts, at least one from each category level (value, moderate, and deluxe) and have been frequent visitors at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. We have also taken a Disney Cruise Line vacation, so I am acquainted with all types of Disney vacations. Email me at debbie@dreamsbydesigntravel.com to plan your next Disney adventure.

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, myPrince, 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.​
