"Melissa is amazing! She has helped me plan all of our Disney vacations, two to Disney World and 3 to Disneyland. We just got back from Disneyland a little over a week ago. She was so helpful throughout the whole planning process. She finds you the best deals and resorts to fit your needs. She lets you know ahead of time when it’s time to make reservations to the park, for dining, and for other events. Anytime I have a question she goes out of her way to get me an answer. If you’re planning a Disney trip she’s the best!! I can’t imagine planning it without her and already am looking forward to her planning our trip for next year!!" Kelly Denning, Colorado - Disneyland

"Thank you to Melissa at Pixie Dust Adventures for helping us book and plan our dream vacation on Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the Seas! She was always available to answer any questions. I appreciated the email reminders for when a payment was due and I also appreciated all the travel tips. She was very helpful and we will most definitely use her services again in the future!" Erin, Florida - Royal Caribbean Icon of the Seas Cruise

"Melissa was an amazing travel advisor. This is our second trip with her and we can’t stop recommending her to our friends and family. These last two trips with her support have been two of the best vacations our family has ever experienced!!! My favorite moment was my daughter falling in love with roller coasters at Disney the same way I did when I wasn’t much younger than her." Jason Brown, Colorado - Disneyland

"With a big group of 18 I felt like we were always accommodated everywhere we went. Having all of the family together in one place I know was so special to my parents" Jennifer, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"My family and I had a wonderful time. I wish we would’ve stayed longer! There is so much to see but everything we got to see and do was amazing!" Griffin Family, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"Melissa was amazing! She was so helpful throughout the whole planning process which made things so easy for us. She’s very knowledgeable about different places and was able to really help us with any questions we had. We absolutely loved our resort and decided this was the best vacation we’ve ever had. It wouldn’t have been possible without Melissa’s help, thank you!!" Alicia, Colorado - Jamaica

"Thank you again, SO MUCH, for your expertise and helping me plan an amazing 40th birthday/anniversary celebration with my husband. We had an incredible time and, literally, every day, keep saying that we wish we were back in Disney. Animal Kingdom lodge was beautiful, the parks were really never too busy and the Starcruiser was just a really really special experience." Kate, Wisconsin - Disney World, Starcruiser

"I loved every ride we went on. My daughter Sariah got to do the Bibbidi Bobbadi Boo makeover and she had the best time, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as well! The Donald Duck Dinner at Animal Kingdom was also so fun and exciting! That was the only place we saw Mickey and we were able to take so many pictures with him and Donald, Daisy and Goofy. The food was also delicious! I already want to go back!" Kim G, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"Working with Melissa was 100000% worth it. We loved each of our our drivers and the resort/hotel were exactly what we wanted! Locally owned with a focus on sustainability. The included breakfasts at both places were AMAZING and I don’t think a resort with better views could even exist. The whole trip was absolutely perfect. My only regret was not pre-booking another tour/activity for our other free day in La Fortuna. We did great on our own but it would have been even more effortless to have done it through Melissa in advance. All and all, this was the best portion of our trip. Loved every bit of it. Even the long drives were fun because of the amazing drivers" Jennifer, Illinois - Costa Rica

Costa Rica ~ Story: "We went on 5 separate guided tours/adventures over the course of our 10 days in Costa Rica and the favorite of our big kids (ages 12 and 17) was the white water rafting! The adventure also included a sugar cane demonstration and lunch and they loved the whole thing." Jennifer, Illinois - Costa Rica

"My son had no idea we were going on this cruise and he was very excited when he learned about it. Melissa’s emails were very informative. I definitely felt very prepared with her info and my own research. I loved my Disney cruise experience and will definitely be back!" Crystal McLeod-King, Texas - Disney Cruise Line

"Melissa did a wonderful job coordinating our vacation. Everything went flawless. Very transparent when she thought something would not work and she figured out a way to make everything work for us. Loved working with her and most definitely work with her again." Sarah M, Colorado - Cancun

"We were kept well informed before, during and on return. We will definitely use our travel advisor for future trips. The experience was all heartwarming and exciting. Special moments shared with family." P. FC, Colorado - Cancun

"Melissa was always quick to answer any questions or concerns I had! I was so glad to have her instead of trying to navigate everything on my own! We loved Serenity at Castaway Cay! So so gorgeous, quiet and relaxing!" Ginger Green, Georgia - Disney Cruise Line

"It’s impossible to pick I can’t pick just one favorite memory. My best friend from high school and I were celebrating turning 40 and we had some of the best laughs we’ve had in a long time…to the point of crying!" - Lindsey P, WI (Disneyland)

"Our favorite memories were seeing our kids faces light up as we watched a parade, or when we ran into a character just roaming the parks. Elastagirl played hide and seek with our girls and it made their entire day. I cried more times than I care to admit watching the magic of Disney unfold in our kids." Ashley M, Indiana - Walt Disney World

"It’s hard to choose one special moment from our trip. Our daughter was on a knee scooter, but everyone was so accommodating and helpful. She even got to ride the Aquaduck because she was determined to hop up those stairs. Riding that with her was awesome. She also bonded with our waiter and was genuinely happy to see him every day. All of the dining areas were also wonderful with my husband’s celiac.

Melissa prepared us so well for this trip. We look forward to working with her again!" - Dawn F, Florida - Disney Cruise Line

"I loved traveling with family & seeing them enjoy their first cruise experience.

Melissa was absolutely fantastic in every way!!!" H & S Families, Florida - Disney Cruise Line

"I cant thank Melissa enough for the tips/tricks, the willingness to help every time I changed something. Your knowledge helped to make our trip absolutely unforgettable " Ashley M, Indiana - Walt Disney World

"Finding Diagon Alley when opening the park and practically being the only people there was one of the most magical moments. Turning around that brick wall to see all it unfold was so overwhelming I teared up. To finally experience seeing in person what you’ve only seen in the movies was beautiful.

I’m usually pretty conservative and frugal in trying to find the best deals in everything I spend money on. I finally gave a travel agent a shot. Oh my goodness!! I had no idea what kind of deals I was missing out on. I’m a drive not fly, pack lunches not go out to eat type person, and I felt like royalty staying at the resort and getting benefits at the parks. I will never go back to doing it myself. Melissa made everything seamless and never pushed selling anything. She gave me time and helped me work through my indecisiveness. 100% will be going back to her for all my needs." *P* Family, Indiana - Universal Orlando

"Disney was an amazing experience for my family and our travel agent was a big part of that! I felt very prepared for our first trip. " LaRicka L, Indiana - Walt Disney World

"Melissa’s guidance was amazing at helping us navigate what I consider to be the "new" Disney experience. She made the processes (Genie+, transportation, ILL, dining, etc.) seem simple which enabled us to have a fun filled, magical experience. Her tips for each park where invaluable. We saw and experienced everything we had hoped to and more. It’s a mother-daughter trip I will never forget!" A.B. Wisconsin - Walt Disney World

"It was amazing and we are already talking about our next trip! It was so magical and seeing the joy in my kiddos eyes was the best! " April, IN - Walt Disney World

"I loved each and every moment! The food was excellent and the service was beyond anything I ever expected. Melissa went above & beyond." Rachel Boltz, Florida - Royal Caribbean Cruise

"Melissa always answers no matter how many times you’ve emailed or called. Plus she was quick to answer while I was at the parks. My favorite moment was my daughter dancing around in her Ticker Bell outfit and someone walked up and pixie dusted her with a balloon." Nikole Rush, Indiana - Walt Disney World

"While visiting Honduras, we went on a zip line adventure excursion. We rode many zip lines through the Gumbalimba rain forest. Once we were finished with the zip lines, we were taken on a guided tour of the park where we were able to interact with white faced monkeys. " Andrew, MO - Royal Caribbean Cruise

"We are all so impressed with our trip. I will never plan a trip on my own again!!" Christa Hocking, Colorado - Disney Cruise Line & Walt Disney World.

"Our Cruise and Disney World was wonderful; everything was perfect! Thank you so much for organizing such a great vacation. Everything was taken care of, the transfers to hotels, the cruise, airline, etc. we didn’t have to worry or check up on any of our vacation plans. We had a great time." Susan Andrew, Colorado - Disney Cruise Line & Walt Disney World.

"We had an amazing time! Everything was perfect! There were no app glitches luckily. And we got a lion king suite! It was the best vacation ever! Thank you so much for all of your help! We couldn’t have done it without you!" Sam Vitale, Connecticut - Walt Disney World.

"Back home from a trip of a lifetime! So very thankful for the last 12 days together as a family! We definitely made some amazing memories at Disneyworld and on our first Disney cruise. A huge shout out to Melissa with Pixie Dust Adventures for being the best travel agent we could ask for. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Melissa for your Disney travel needs!" Michele Haynes, Oklahoma - Walt Disney World & Disney Cruise Line

"Melissa- thank you SO much for helping us with the Disneyland portion of our west coast road trip!! It was absolutely phenomenal. Not sure if you made this happen or if we just got lucky, but being on the pool deck floor of the hotel was icing on the cake! 🧁 Easy access to the pool and a view of the fireworks each night from our own patio! This wasn’t the first time I’ve worked with Melissa (she helped me plan a girls weekend for the Princess half marathon!) and it won’t be the last. I cannot recommend Pixie Dust Adventures enough for any of your Disney related adventures!" Jenn Barbour, Illinois - Disneyland

"Thank you so much too for all of the planning and work you did for us. We all just had the best time, grandkids and adults alike. We really have the best memories. It was worth every penny. We all smile just thinking of the great time we had. What a happy time! Thank you again for all you did for us. You are the best!" Mary Eldridge, Wisconsin - Walt Disney World

"I wanted to thank you again for all of your help with planning our Universal Orlando vacation. We got home yesterday and had a blast! We loved the Hard Rock hotel - it was an immaculate property with a really beautiful pool and top-notch service. Happy Limousine was prompt, professional and courteous. Both Universal and IofA were amazing. We especially enjoyed the Harry Potter attractions. Hagrids Motorbike was our favorite. We were able to ride all attractions at least twice! It was a very memorable family vacation." Melissa Coppola, New York - Universal Studios Orlando

"Melissa did such a fantastic job with our Universal trip in October 2021! She helped us book a lovely stay at the Hard Rock, our park tickets, plus a night at the Magic Kingdom Halloween celebration! She answered all of my million questions quickly and graciously and went the extra mile by helping retrieve our photos from the Universal system after they disappeared!" Dawn Fishman, Florida - Universal Orlando & Walt Disney World

"Thank you so much Melissa for helping create these memories ❤️🙏" Nancy L, Florida - Royal Caribbean Cruise Line

"I wanted to reach out and thank you for coordinating such a nice trip for me and my family. The hotel was great. We loved the room theme, the lake in the center of the property and Sabastian’s restaurant was delicious. Disney World did not disappoint. It was so special to be there during their 50th year. My son was tall enough to ride all the rides so he enjoyed it so much more. I think our biggest highlights were the Rise to Resistance ride, seeing more of Epcot, and eating at the Beauty and the Beast castle. Thanks so much, we will definitely be talking to you in the future." Rebecca James, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"Melissa was such a joy to work with! She made everything a breeze-even when we had some bigger changes we needed to make happen. She sent extremely helpful information, a wonderful pack with everything we needed for our trip and some goodies too! We were blown away when we got a gift card from her as well to use in something special during our vacation. She is very responsive and so knowledgeable!! We will be using her again in the future for sure!!" Kaitlin Fillipi, Kansas - Walt Disney World

"Thank you for everything! We had such a magical time 🥰✨" - "J" Family, Virginia - Walt Disney World

"Thank you so much for all of your help planning our Disney vacation!! We had so much fun and can’t wait to go back again soon (even my husband who wasn’t too excited about the trip from the beginning is asking to go back)! I didn’t know how to begin planning a trip for our family, my parents and my in-laws so I really appreciate your help coordinating everyone, you made it all easy on us 🙂. We’ll definitely be in touch for our next trip as well! Thank you!" - Jean R, Wisconsin - Disney World

"We all had a great time at WDW! Thanks for all your help!" - S. James. Colorado - Walt Disney World

"Thank you so much for helping make our honeymoon perfect. With Bill and I never being out of the country before, you helped guide us and took all the stress away for planning a trip out of the country. The resort you helped us pick was amazing! We had the best time! And made plenty of wonderful memories. You were such a pleasure to work with! You will definitely be hearing from us again when we plan our next big trip!" Jill L, Wisconsin - Cancun El Dorado Royale

"4 months later, this review is VERY overdue! Yet, I’m still compelled to share our experience in working with Melissa and Pixie Dust Adventures because it was THAT great. I took a weeklong trip with my husband, 5-year-old daughter and my in-laws last November. We booked with Melissa on the recommendation of a friend. From our very first interaction which was over a year before our trip and through to the week we left for Florida, I was so very grateful for her time, expertise, and dedication to making our family trip wonderful. The first time we spoke to Melissa, our trip dates were not yet open for booking. She was still generous with her time and helpful in helping us select our dates. She stayed on top of our still-to-be-booked trip, and when our dates were open, she got us confirmed with our preferred dates and resort. At the time of booking, conditions surrounding COVID were unclear, but she always assured us that despite park limitations, it would still be possible to have an amazing vacation. (Spoiler alert: She was right!) We don’t often travel, so this trip was a big deal for us—financially and otherwise. She never took us for granted, listened to what was important to us, and always provided budget-friendly recommendations without us having to ask for them. As a busy mom and frequent park-goer herself, she was very much in touch with the family experience at Disney, too. I found this especially helpful in general—but also at a time when so much was changing at the parks due to COVID. The guidance we received on trip planning, attractions, and dining was always balanced, realistic, and value-added. She has a way of always making you feel good about your decisions. Her personalized “tip sheets” on each park are a real differentiator, too. We referred to them daily. I can’t thank her enough for such an incredible trip!" - Lisa N., Illinois - Walt Disney World

"Thank you for helping us have such a memorable vacation!" Kimbra, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"Hey Melissa, we had an amazing time. Thank you." - Shaana, Florida - Punta Cana

"We have a lot of memories of great times shared. Thank you so much for all of your help throughout our planning process. Hope to use your services again sometime." - Lynn, Wisconsin - Walt Disney World

"Melissa I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful vacation you helped plan! Without your assistance we would have not known about a lot of attractions and places! I can’t wait until we plan our next adventure with you! Many thanks." - Brandi Adakai, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"We had a wonderful time. Thanks again for all your help" Gill Family, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"Our family had a supercalafragalistic vacation thanks to your thoughtful planning and expertise. Your hard work and attention to every details made for an unforgettable vacation and was very much appreciated." "P" family of 18, Colorado - Walt Disney World

"To say the LEAST, we had a blast!! OH MY WORD! I can’t thank you enough for all your help - it truly was a trip of a lifetime!" - Mark Hall from Kansas - Carnival Cruise

"If you’re like me, an A type who can’t rest until every detail is checked twice, you need to work with Melissa. She got my vibe right away! Melissa handled every thing with professionalism and a smile. Trust your special occasion to her & relax!" - Dina from NY. Secrets Maroma Resort

" Melissa has planned several trips for our family in the last few years and we appreciate her communication and attention to the details. Our most recent trip involved using a travel credit with an airline that we had to cancel in 2020 due to the pandemic. She kept us up to date on our timeline to use the credit and when the airline said they couldn’t find our credit, she saved the day spending countless hours to resolve the situation. She went on to plan such a fun trip at Disneyland Resort and Hotel for our family and we didn’t have to worry about any of the details. She took care of it all and even sent us with a packet of all our information and travel entertainment packets for our kids. The amount of stress Melissa has taken off our minds for every trip, whether traveling internationally or within the US, is priceless. We are so grateful and already thinking about where we want her to plan our next trip to!" - The Schultz family - Colorado

We had a wonderful experience with Melissa. She was fabulous from the being to end. She helped with extra things also like private transportation and car rentals. And even helped when we were at Disney. I highly recommend her for your next Disney vacation. - Jenn Woods, Colorado - Walt Disney World

“Melissa, from start to finish, thank you for helping us with things that seemed impossible, thank you for answering emails promptly and sending us sweet pics and video of the resort! With this being our first visit we had a lot of questions, and we so appreciate the communication - even when we were on our vacation and thought of last minute questions!! We appreciate you and look forward to working with you in the future!” - Val, Oklahoma

OMG the characters they’ve got out, the new Spider-Man ride, and wow at how they made this land come to life ❤️❤️ also, the new Disneyland fireworks show is AMAZING" - Elizabeth D. , Oklahoma

I have been working on a huge adventure. With the help of Melissa Mathies, I am happy to announce that at the end of the month, I will be attending the 50th Anniversary of Disney. Living close by, I usually just drive down (30 min) and do things on a whim. With it being the 50th celebration, I knew that in order to really take in the celebration, I had to stay on property. With Melissa’s help, she was able to get me a great room at the Grand Floridian. I have never worked with a travel agent before. I HIGHLY recommend her! She is the best. - Bobby, Florida

A great choice for a travel agent." - W - and - M - Families (5 star Facebook review on Pixie Dust Adventures)

She is no longer just our forever travel agent but she, and her beautiful family, are now official Reyes family members!" Reyes Family, New Mexico

"I want to thank you for your assistance in planning a wonderful vacation. Thanks to you everything went pretty smoothly and we were able to enjoy our time in Disney World. I will definitely consider your services for future vacations. Our favorite parks were Epcot and Animal Kingdom, we were able to do a lot of activities, watched shows, and got on many rides! Once again thank you so much!" - M. & F. Nava, Texas

"Melissa was awesome in planning our first Disney trip! She scheduled our resort, dinning reservations, and fast passes. There wasn’t anything she didn’t think of. She was always quick to respond to any questions I had, and I had a lot! She also provided lots of tips which was so helpful. I will definitely be using Melissa in the future!!" - L. Smith, Ohio

"Melissa is an old client of mine in Real Estate, this is how I got to know her and her family! I quickly discovered just how different she was as a client. She was so thorough with everything involving the sale of her house, so prompt with getting back to me and just so darn freaking nice! We all know that when you are going through a tough transaction that it becomes very easy to get frustrated, IT WAS THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE WITH MELISSA. SHE WAS SO NICE! Since that transaction, my family and I have used her twice for vacations, one to Florida and the other to Hawaii! Let me tell you something Melissa planned everything so so so PERFECTLY FOR US. We as a family could tell this right from the get go getting off the plane! SHE IS SO THOROUGH AND SO CARING! Did you know that she mailed me a book about Maui, how totally and completely awesome is that! I CHALLENGE ANYBODY I MEAN ANYBODY OUT THERE TO FIND SOMEBODY AS CARING, THOROUGH AND NICE AS MELISSA, when picking somebody to help you with your travel. YOU WON’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Rob M., Colorado

Hi Melissa! We had a wonderful vacation! We had a great time and really enjoy everything about Disney world. It was amazing how low the wait times were at just about everywhere. We also feel very lucky to get in boarding group 6 for rise of the resistance. It was an amazing experience and definitely a new favorite for both of us. - E. Johnson, Colorado

"Thank you for everything you helped us with, we had a Wonderful time on our vacation! I especially loved the Photo Pass/Memory maker, I was actually able to be in the vacation pictures for once😉 hahaI have already shared your info with my best friend! They aren’t planning to go to Disney for a few years, but I told her you were the only one to turn to!! I also plan on coming to you for any future vacation plans, possibly a cruise, if I can convince the husband to take one😉 Thank you again for being such a Great Travel Agent!!" M Family, Colorado

"We went to Disney World in 2013 and I did all the planning and leg work. Melissa was recommended to us by a friend so I let go of the reigns and gave her a shot. Our trip to Disney World this time was seamless! Melissa helped us with everything but flights as I already had that booked. When we arrived the hotel already knew we were celebrating our son’s birthday and we didn’t have to budget for meals because we did the meal plan (highly recommend). Melissa set up all our fast passes and dinner reservations so I didn’t have to sit at my computer at midnight when our time frame opened. She also text me to let me know of special events happening while we were there. Book with Melissa, you won’t be disappointed!" - Audra

"Oh my goodness! Melissa at Pixie Dust Adventures is amazing!!! She helped me plan and gave me the best deals she could find which were totally awesome! She gave me detailed itinerary and directions step by step on where to go and what shuttles to catch! She was available anytime I had questions before, during and after our trip. She gave us tips on thrifty eating and took care of everything when our flight was canceled and we had to stay and extra day and I was getting ready to freak out when that happened but I didn’t because she took care of It for me and was so glad to do it. She has been a blessing to my family and me! I highly recommend her!!! She rocks!!!" ❤️ -L. Lucero family, Colorado

"We had the best spring break ever thanks to Melissa at Pixie Dust Adventures! She is wonderful! Talk about best customer service ever. She is always available for all my questions and helps plan the trip from beginning to end! She works with you on a budget that fits your family. She made this trip special and we can’t thank her enough. My boys love getting mail from her! From her sweet notes to her fast response time on any and all questions we won’t ever plan a Disney trip without her! We can’t wait for the next one!" - Tanya, New Mexico

"...it is clear that you care about your clients and spent a lot of time getting them better deals. I am seriously blown away that you took that work off of my back. I have always been a "plan it yourself" type of Disney-goer but you may have changed that! I like that I am able to plan as much or as little as I want." Lauran

"Thank you for helping our family plan our vacation." *A* and *J* family

"You changed our lives and it was a trip of a life time!!! My husband keeps telling everyone how amazing it was using huge hand motions like a little kid and he is one that’s hard to please!!!" - Emily - Universal Orlando

"Melissa has helped me plan two intricate trips this year- one with a friend for RunDisney at Walt Disney World and another with my family at Disneyland. She is patient with plan alterations. She is kind when I ask multiple questions I could probably find on Google. She applied package discounts the day they came out without me even having to ask. This woman probably made at least 5 to 10 calls to Disney on my behalf- gladly. Before working with Melissa, I had planned 5 Disney trips on my own. I’ll never go back to planning them by myself. Using a travel agent is completely free (Disney pays them), and they take the fuss out of planning. The coolest part is that I still get to do all of the fun planning that I enjoy- such as fastpasses and dining reservations. I know she would have done them for me, but I love the excitement of those aspects. Melissa goes over the top of what is expected. She sent my family the sweetest care package before our upcoming trip- complete with items that she didn’t even know were on my shopping list! My kiddos now have entertainment for their flights and autograph books that are cooler than anything I would have found in Oklahoma. This is the first trip that my kids are interested in autographs, so I am thrilled to have these. She even included a gift card for a treat on her! There were many other special things included in the package such as current park maps, a custom itinerary- printed and bound, and information on Disney cruises. I was so happy to see the cruise information because I had chatted with her about how we want to go on one in the next few years. She had a note on it about having fun with future planning. Oh, I will!! Seriously Melissa is awesome! There’s literally nothing to lose by working with her on a trip. I’m so glad I found her! I can’t wait to plan my next trip with her!" - L Family, Oklahoma

"I’ll be sure to let you know when we start to plan our next Disney vacation. You were the best! Thanks again!" - *P* family, Colorado

Thank you for all our little surprises before and after our trip. We had a blast and came back exhausted. I will have to send you a list of everything we accomplished; it will probably floor you. I have been recommending you to all my friends and hopefully we can plan another trip soon. Thank you so much for all your patience in answering questions and all your hard work. Sincerely, Shania

"Hi Melissa, Once again, thanks a lot for all your help. You made our trip smooth and a fantastic experience. I am a seasoned traveler. We have spent more than 20 years overseas and are absolutely ok navigating in different countries. So, we never really use travel agents. But this was different. I had a hunch after a little Disney Research that for this trip it would make a lot of sense to get help. And boy was that right. I found you through your excellent YouTube videos and thought that this would a great partnership. Disney can be a little overwhelming when it comes to selecting the right activities and organizing reservations etc. without you it would have been a lot more difficult for me to do this. And we would have missed a lot. So thank you in the name of my small Family for making this a wonderful experience. We are fully aware that we only scratched the surface here. So, we will definitely be back. And we really liked the concept of the Cruise. Rest assured that we will be in contact. I will not do any Disney or cruise trips without you." G.K., Switzerland - Walt Disney World + Disney Cruise
