My name is Jeremy Leichtenberg, and I live in West Fargo, North Dakota! I got bit by the Disney mouse in 2012. What started as a 2 day trip to Walt Disney World quickly turned into a passion for our family. While we have always loved Disney, we had no idea how magical Disney World could be. We have since returned 3 times, and are always planning our next Disney vacation.I am married, with 3 children. My wife Amanda, supports this crazy addiction of mine that is Disney! My children, Emma (10), Ashlyn and Makenzie (both 2) are Disney fanatics as well. One of my twin daughters first words was “Minnie” They are becoming addicted to Disney just like their dad! Emma made her first trip when she was 6, and Ashlyn and Makenzie made their first trip at 10 months old. Working with Destinations to Travel has been amazing! Helping people plan their magical vacations brings a big smile to my face. It doesn’t get much better than seeing families enjoying their vacations because of your help! It helps bring Disney into my life every day, as well as other amazing destinations throughout the world!I am thrilled to be working as an agent for Destinations to Travel, LLC!

I am a master at planning a trip to Disney with young kids. Being raised in Alabama, Disney was our second home. We went multiple times a year since my first trip at 4. It still is the most magical place on Earth!My name is Casey Bolt and two of my passions are Disney and travel! I've been an agent with Destinations to Travel for almost two years and I'm constantly pinching myself that planning Disney vacations is part of my job!! My parents and I began visiting Walt Disney World when I was 3 and have been frequent visitors ever since! It wasn't until I had the opportunity to really "plan" my first trip to Disney as an adult that I truly realized my passion for planning Disney vacations! Because I've been visiting Disney for the past 26 years, I have had the opportunity to visit during different times of the year, attend several special events, and stay at multiple resort levels! I've also been blessed to participate in the Run Disney Princess Half Marathon and will also be participating in the 2018 Fairy Tale Challenge! Combining my personal experience with my training at the Disney College of Knowledge, I truly believe I can plan a magical vacation for your family! This South Carolina girl will NEVER grown up and will always consider Disney as the happiest and most magical place on Earth! 🙂
