Visit the Magic Travel Agency

I’m Nicole Riley, the owner of Visit the Magic Travel. Early on in my adult life I learned how important it is to get away. My husband and I took our first Disney World vacation in 1999. It was magical. From an early age, my children have been visiting Disney World - it’s like a scrapbook of memories of our lives. There aren’t too many places we go there that we aren’t reminded of a time in our lives that we visited. Through the years, I’ve visited with those that mean the most to me. I’ve created friendships through my trips. 

And at one point, I discovered the magical part wasn’t about where. It was about escaping with the people I care about the most.

While Disney World will always have a special place in my heart, there are so many places I have visited and created amazing memories. From cruises like Royal Caribbean and Disney to all-inclusive resorts like Sandals and Beaches and many others, it’s about the time away and seeing the world. I have a passion for helping others have a vacation where they create lifelong memories.

Hi! I'm Jessica and I love Disney! I have spent the last several years helping friends and family planning Disney World vacations, and now I'm hoping to help plan yours! My first trip to Walt Disney World was in 2002, when I was 20. This very first vacation to Disney World lit a fire under me for Disney and traveling.

I began the following fall working towards a degree in Travel & Tourism through AIB: College of Business. After being there for a couple of semesters, I began working at Disney World, through Disney's College Program. I ended up moving to Orlando after my program was finished and earned a degree in Event Management through the University of Central Florida.

Family has brought me back to Iowa, where I am a home child care provider. I love working with my child care clients, and I look forward to helping you plan your Disney vacations!

Hello! My name is Melinda Espinal and my family and I have always loved going on vacation. There's nothing like taking some time to escape the real world, am I right?

We first visited Walt Disney World after some not-so-gentle nudging from our best friends back when our daughter was 2, and it was the best decision we ever made. I fell in love with the magic of it all, the sounds, characters, shows, rides, food and of course, the fireworks! I KNEW that I had to share this magic with others, so I joined the agency that helped me to "Visit the Magic."

I've since been on multiple Walt Disney World vacations as well as enjoyed time on Disney Cruise Line. Nothing excites me more than helping someone plan a Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line or Universal Studios vacation. It's almost like I'm taking the trip right along with you! I look forward to helping you book for first or hundredth visit! There's always something new to experience! Come on, let's get to making memories for you and your family!

Hi my name is Jackie Gegg. I have been a Disney enthusiast since I was a child and took my first Disney World trip with my family when I was 8 years old. I took my husband there on our honeymoon in the mid-90’s, and we have been making trips there almost every year since our daughter was born 23 years ago. We love the parks, but we also love to visit the many resorts and eating at all the wonderful restaurants around Disney World when we aren’t park hopping.

We also really enjoy The Disney Cruise Line and have taken many voyages on their ships. Our daughter began working for Disney in Orlando recently, so we plan on making even more frequent trips there to visit her. I also really like the ships of Norwegian Cruise Line and am really looking forward to sailing on their newest ship sometime in the near future.

I have been working with Visit the Magic Travel for three years now, and I love helping travelers plan their best trips possible. If I can help you plan your next trip, please contact me.

I am Don Puckett. Traveling is one of my biggest passions. I enjoy the planning side of traveling almost just as much as the trip itself! Growing up I spent half my time in Florida and loved visiting all the parks. My wife and I took our first trip with our kids in August of 2003 and immediately started planning our next trip. Our kids grew up going to Disney or Universal at least once a year as we enjoyed staying at various park resorts. In addition to parks we have been on five Disney cruises (including a 14-day Mediterranean Cruise and the Galactic Starcruiser) and several trips to Europe. In addition to Disney, we enjoy traveling the country and world. I am always planning my family’s next trip and it would be my pleasure to use my expertise on Disney as well as cruising to help you plan your trip.

The best money spent is an experience that you enjoy. With our help you can rest assured that you will be delighted at every turn.

We build you an experience you will enjoy

I've been on over 25 cruises, to Universal, numerous All-Inclusive Resorts, and Disney World over 75 times. Planning a vacation of any kind requires research and knowledge to do it well. We will hand that over to you.

We offer invaluable experience

Unlike other agencies, we don't plan your itinerary down to the hour. Doing so only adds pressure, anxiety and disappointment when something doesn't go exactly as planned (and it will). That's why we approach planning your trip differently, setting you up for stress-free success.

We set you up for success

You already know what you want, you just don't have the expertise to execute that vision. We will intently listen to your priorities and turn them into a vacation you KNOW you're doing the right way.

We listen to what matters most to you

We make ourselves available to answer all of your questions ahead of time, so that when it's time to travel, you can fully immerse yourself in the moment. And when there are travel problems, I'm available to help, and I care.

We allow you to fully immerse yourself

Vacations are overwhelming. They require research and knowledge you just don't have. We will give you reassurance you're doing it right.

We eliminate the overwhelm
