Founder & Owner of Bright Wishes Agents
Travel Advisor Specializing in all Disney Destinations and Universal Studios
Hi there! I'm Trish Schlacht. I could tell you about how long I’ve been planning travel professionally (psst, it’s been 5+ years), or the special certifications my team holds (we’re proud graduates of the Disney College of Knowledge) but when it comes to why you should trust us with your Disney experience, it boils down to this:
Nobody knows and loves Disney like my team and I.
In fact, I take my kids at least once a month. And no, we don’t live in Orlando—we’re in Cleveland! I’ve stayed in every Walt Disney WorldⓇResort, have sailed on the Disney Cruise Line, have visited Disneyland® Resort multiple times, and have stayed at AULANI, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii.
And as often as we ride Space Mountain® or watch the parade, we never get tired of it. Because there really is something magical about the Disney experience. My kids still get the biggest smiles on their faces when they spot their favorite characters or spy the spires of Cinderella’s Castle. It’s a place where kids get to be kids, and we adults get to tap into our “inner kid” for a while, too. It doesn’t get more special than that—especially when you have the insider knowledge on how to eke every last ounce of magic out of your stay.
So whether this is your first Disney vacation or your 10th, if you’re looking to maximize the magic, I invite you to trust your travels to us. We’ll infuse your itinerary with a personal touch, give away all our best Disney secrets, and ensure you, too, fall under the spell of the signature magic only found at Disney.

Hello! My name is Jackie and I specialize in all Disney destinations and Universal Studios. I have been a Disney fan my entire life - I travel to the parks multiple times a year and have gone on several cruises! I am a mom of young children so I pay specific attention to detail when it comes to booking families with children. I also love booking girls trips, bachelorette parties, or adults-only getaways!
My favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast, and I cry every time I walk into Magic Kingdom and see the castle. I have a husband and two kids who love Disney just as much as I do!
Let me book your next trip to make your experience the most magical it can be!

Please don't forget that "all it takes is faith, trust, and pixie dust" to live "happily
I look forward to getting to know you and booking your next Disney Vacation!
