Founder’s Story

Many people ask me how I got into this business? What motivated me to do what I do?  Here is my Founder’s Story:

My Founder’s Story begin as I sat holding my 3 day old nephew, I told him that “If I am not able to have children then when you are 5, we will take you to Disneyworld with your brother. And so my Disney dream began.  As promised, when he was 5, we took him and his brother to Disneyworld. I had loads of research to make sure it was a great trip. Unfortunately, my research was not enough, so we had a good trip but not a great trip.

Having a great time at Disney became my mission. I strived to create a great vacation at Disney for whomever I was helping. I would read EVERYTHING I could find- books, websites, newsletter, , you name it I read it-EVERYTHING!! We also started traveling to Disney 1-3 times per year and became annual pass holders.  Over time I have made Disney friends and cohorts. We talk, email, Facebook, anything to share information we have or ask questions we want great information on. I still can’t get enough information about Disney!

Soon family and friends started asking me to help plan their Disney vacations, which I did with great success. I can’t express the happiness I feel when they come back from their Disney vacation and tell me how it was such a success and they had a great time.

As this continued I said to my husband, “When I ‘retire’ I want to start a Disney IN park planning service”. Retirement came earlier than expected and A Walk in the Park with Colleen was born.  At A Walk in the Park with Colleen, I help you create your magical vacation experience in the Disney parks. The experience is tailored to meet YOUR personal interests, desires and dreams. I believe everyone should have a great time at Disney.  And this is my Founder’s Story.
