About Lauren

My Background


Since my first trip to Magic Kingdom at the age of 3, I have had a fascination with Walt Disney World and all things Disney. As I got older that fascination turned into a passion for providing lifelong memories for my family as well as other families. Since 2015, I have planned dozens of Disney vacations for my family and close friends. In 2017, my dream came true when I started Starting With a Mouse and became an official travel agent and Disney Vacation Planner! 

My certifications:

2017 College of Disney Knowledge 

2018 College of Disney Knowledge

2019 College of Disney Knowledge 

Universal Orlando Resort Specialist

Certified Travel Associate

Beyond the World


Whether your vacation dreams are set on Walt Disney World in Florida, Disneyland in California, a Disney Cruise, or a vacation like no other with Adventures by Disney, I can plan it all!

Destination Dreaming


Though I consider Disney my "home," my passion for travel extends far beyond the world of Disney. I am also authorized to book vacations all over the world with suppliers such as Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Sandals Resorts, Apple Vacations, Hilton International, etc. Find out more at www.destinationdreamingtravel.com
