About Park Plans & Pixie Dust

Hi and Welcome ! We are Kyla and Melanie, a mother~daughter team passionate

about helping people make their Disney travel dreams come true!

Over the past 25 years we have travelled to DisneyWorld, and Disneyland as a family

and it became one of our most treasured places to visit together.

When Melanie became a travel agent, she just knew she wanted to specialize and share her love an passion for all things Disney with her clients. She took the Collage of Disney Knowledge training course for travel professionals in 2007 and has been specializing in Disney travel ever since.

Now, 15 years later, Kyla has her own family and loves making Disney memories with them. As a young mom, she knows the joys and struggles of creating just the right vacation for your unique family.

As DVC owners, travel professionals and Moms, we feel we have the knowledge and expertise

to help make your Disney Vacation memorable & Magical!


I am a mom, nana and Disney Vacation Club Owner

I was trained as a Disney Vacation Specialist in Walt Disney World Orlando, and even received my Disney Diploma from Mickey Mouse!

I have loved taking my family to the Disney parks from the time they were infants, enjoying the different stages of vacations right up to their teens. And now I get to enjoy trips with the next generation. I have taken and booked large extended family trips with grandparents, uncles and aunts as well as large groups like school trips and dance teams.

2020 was the only year in the past 17 years that I have missed visiting a Disney Park.

I have been to Hong Kong Disney, gone on Disney Cruises and visited Aulani in Hawaii and I'd love to put my experience to work for you and be your Disney Travel Agent!


I am a mom of 2 rambunctious little ones, who love Disney almost as much as I do.

My mom's love for Disney and vacation planning was contagious, and it was a natural fit for me to want to join her in creating Park Plans & Pixie Dust.

I love to give parents the tools to not only save time and money, but also unique ways they can add those magical touches to make memories that will last a life time.

I know that planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming but if you let me, I can take the stress out of it for you.

- I'd love to be your Disney Bestie!

What is a DVC Rental?

DVC is an acronym for Disney Vacation Club.

"What is a DVC Rental"?

People actually own timeshares offered by Disney, through the Disney Vacation Club.

These timeshares are located in the Disney Vacation Club resorts.

Disney refers to them as Deluxe Villas.

These timeshare owners get to use these villas throughout the year.

Disney determines the size of an ownership purchase by allocating points.

The type of room and number of days that they can use their timeshare

is dependent on how may points they own.

The more points one has, the more nights they can stay.

Of and course, it takes more points to stay the same length of time in

a 2 bedroom than it does in a 1 bedroom or a studio.

When these owners can not use their timeshare, they can choose to rent them out.

That is what a DVC Rental is.

As DVC timeshare owners we know what an incredible value DVC is.

You may not be ready to buy you own points, but renting them is one way you can

save a lot of money on your Disney Vacation and get more bang for your buck

in the type of room you get.

Did you know that you can rent DVC points for a fraction of the cost

of booking a standard resort room? It's luxury for a lot less.

We would love to share our little secret with you

and help you save a lot of money

on your next Disney Vacation!






Which Walt Disney World tickets to buy is one of the key decisions you will make while planning your Disney World vacation. There are several ticket options for you to choose from. We will attempt to help you be informed about your options so you can make the

best decision for you and your family.

A standard (or base) ticket allows entrance to one theme park each day. You can then add additional features to your ticket which allows for greater flexibility and entrance to other parks and attractions. By giving you options, Disney allows you to only pay for the features you want. Besides the type of ticket, you will need to decide how many days to visit each park.

Standard Park Ticket (Base Ticket)

  • Visit 1 theme park per day.
  • Choose between Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom parks.
  • Pick any one park to visit. Enter and exit the same park throughout the day.
  • Purchase your ticket based on the number of days you wish to visit parks

Water Park & Sports Option

(adds to your Standard Park Ticket)

  • Choose from these additional attractions: Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, or NBA Experience.
  • The number of visits is equal to the number of days of park tickets purchased.

Park Hopper Ticket

(adds to your Standard Park Ticket)

  • Allows you to visit multiple theme parks on the same day.
  • Choose Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
  • Pick any or all the parks to visit. Enter and exit any park throughout the day.

Park Hopper Plus

(adds to your Park Hopper Ticket)

  • Choose from these additional attractions: Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf, Disney’s 9-hole Oak Trail Golf Course

or ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

  • The number of visits is equal to the

number of days of park tickets purchased

Terms and conditions apply to all tickets be sure to read details carefully so you understand limitations and how to use your tickets prior to purchasing.

Mother and Child

Tickets are priced in 2 categories:

Adult tickets for Ages 10+

Child tickets for Ages 3-9

Children under the age of 3 don't need a ticket



Picking the Resort

that is right for you

star doodle
Solid Star

One of the first decisions you need to make when you decide on a Disney World Vacation is where you will stay. If you have decided to stay on-site, you now need to decide which one of the 25 Disney resorts is right for you.

Price, comfort, amenities and location are all things you will want to take into consideration. We all wrestle with how much money we should spend on a hotel room that we will only sleep in, since we all know the real goal is to spend time in the parks!

Before we dive too deep into the different resorts, there are amenities that are standard at all Disney Resort Hotels. Every Disney Hotel offers the following perks:

  • Complimentary shuttle service from your hotel to all Disney Parks and Disney Springs. This may be on the bus system, monorail, the Friendship Boats or the Disney Skyliner
  • Resort Pools (moderate and Deluxe have waterslides)
  • All guests staying at a Disney Resort may make dining reservations for their entire stay 60 days in advance of their check in date.
  • Eligible to make lighting land purchases at 7:00am with Genie+
  • Early entrance in the Disney parks - 30 prior to park opening to the public
  • On select evenings at select theme parks, Deluxe hotel guests can stay 2 hours late with Extended Evening Hours (valid theme park admission required)

Which Resort is Best?

The answer to this questions is completely dependent on your family and preferences. The best hotel for a family with small children will not be the best choice for a family with older children. If you have a tighter budget a value resort may be best, but if you plan to spend a lot of time at the pool, a higher tier may be better.

Our goal is to give you the basics of each tier of hotel to help you narrow down your Disney Resort choice. You need to have a good understanding of the pros and cons in order to help you choose.
