Hi! I am Sharlon, and I am a wife, mom of three and a Dream Designer with Dreams by Design Travel. I have been a Disney-phile since I was a small girl when I went on my first trip to Walt Disney World in 1973. My mom says I got separated from her in Fantasyland in a crowd of guests. I like to say that I have been lost in the magic of Disney ever since. My many family vacations to Walt Disney World, as well as couples and solo trips, have given me a unique perspective on the resort. I have stayed at many of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels in the Value, Moderate, and Deluxe categories. ​

Planning a vacation is almost as much fun as the vacation itself. Let me help you turn your vacation dreams into a magical reality! Email me at sharlon@dreamsbydesigntravel.com for a free quote.
