Missy O’Connell

Missy first visited Walt Disney World as a child, in the 80’s and her love (obsession!) for Disney has grown ever since!  Although she visited WDW throughout her childhood and as a young adult, she never truly appreciated the magic until she took her own two children.  Seeing the magic of WDW through her children’s eyes, was an experience she loves sharing with others. Discovering all of the unique ways Disney makes children (and adults) feel special, is one of Missy’s favorite parts of a Disney vacation.   She enjoys planning trips just as much as she loves taking them! She is as equally excited to plan trips for others and her attention to detail allows her to customize each trip she plans. Missy graduated from West Virginia University (Let’s Goooo Mountaineers!) as well as Disney’s College of Knowledge.  She is a Kindergarten teacher and her ability to organize, multi-task, and focus on details will allow her to make your vacation a dream come true!

Whether this is your first trip or your tenth, Missy will use her experience and knowledge to customize the perfect trip for your family!

To her, family time is precious, and it is her goal to help create magical memories for her clients!

Lisa Edwards

Lisa lives in Indiana with her husband and 2 little princesses.  Before having children, she and her husband were fortunate to travel overseas and visit many ancient roman and Greek sites.  They were even able to take in the wonder of the Pyramids of Giza.  With two little kids, they decided to temporarily focus on stateside vacations.  Converting her husband into a Disney fan was easy as pie once he saw his oldest daughter run to Mickey with open arms at the age of 3.  Since then, they have become annual passholders and each time they visit Disney World, they stay at a different resort & try new dining venues.  Once of her favorite parks is Epcot especially during the Food & Wine Festival and Flower & Garden Festival.  It’s a wonderful way to teach her daughters about different cultures by trying new foods and exploring the countries around the World Showcase.  Whether an all-inclusive adult getaway, a theme park experience, or overseas adventure; Lisa wants to take your vacation to the next level & create those unforgettable memories.

Kasey Collier

Kasey’s first childhood memory of Disney is in The Magic Kingdom. She recalls watching the​ ​Main Street Electrical Parade. All the lights, shimmer and fairytale princesses captured her​ ​young heart. Not too much has changed since then. Today, when she’s in Disney you can find​ ​her stopping for every parade, waiving to the characters, dancing and singing to her favorite​ ​Disney tunes…usually with a Dole Whip in her hands.
Over her lifetime, Kasey has traveled dozens of times to ​Disneyland and Walt Disney World. She has participated in numerous RunDisney events, attended special ticketed​ ​events (Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Villains​ ​After Hours), Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festivals and International Food and​ ​Wine Festivals. She’s experienced the holiday seasons at Disney, from the Headless Horseman​ ​starting the Halloween parade to snowfall and hot chocolate on Main Street at Christmas.
Long before becoming an agent for Be Our Guest Vacations, Kasey’s friends, family and colleagues​ would ask her for the latest Disney inf​or​​mation​ advice for their next trip. Always happy to help, she decided to make her passion her mission​ ​and become an agent for Be Our Guest Vacations. Kasey enjoys planning vacations for everyone– whether it’s a first-time trip or a tenth, she strives to give each client an individual experience​ ​and one that they will never forget. Disney is magic and she wants to spread that magic to​ ​every client she works with.
In addition to planning magical vacations, Kasey is a Registered Nurse in an​ ​ER in Indianapolis. She enjoys being outdoors, watching sports and​ ​spending time with her family, her boyfriend, Dorian, and their pups, Peyton and Bailey.
