Meet Our Owner

Hello! My name is Susan Rodgers. I have been in love with travel since my childhood. I am actually a souvenir

from Disney, so I guess you can say it is in my blood. I am a Certified Travel and Event Planner by the Travel
Institute. I am a graduate of The College of Disney Knowledge, and have many additional certifications from vendors.  Continuing education is critical to stay current in an ever-changing world.  Let us save you time and energy by doing the work for you.

We’re here to help you plan your trip. Whatever the reason you’re traveling, we’ve got you covered. Even if you only need to book a hotel because you’re heading to your family reunion in Petoskey, and you refuse to sleep in your Great Aunt Tallulah’s guest room because it smells like mothballs.

Go ahead and poke around, find what you need and then contact us.  You can also schedule your free 30 minute consultation.

Crazy Scottish-Themed Wedding

Travel agent is not a complete word to describe all Susan helped me with. She will DEFINATELY go above & beyond what you think you want/need in terms of trying to book an event outside of your home town. We had emails & phone calls & excelent communication as she helped me plan my CRAZY Scottish themed wedding in the Bahamas. With about 30 people traveling from all accross the country, she knew exactly where & what everyone needed. Even when the hotel started to drop the ball she was right there to pick it up, run with it, & score. Everyone I spoke with said she was easy to contact & they felt they were taken care of. I can't wait to plan my next trip through her. I here she is VERY well versed in the "Wonderful World of Disney" so perhaps that will be our next stop. 🙂

Oh... we also received GREAT information from her about a cruise we took & were VERY happy with her knowledge of the "inner workings" of how to cruise.

Best Wedding Ever

Hiring Susan was such an amazing idea!! I hired her to Coordinate my Wedding. She was attentive, kind, and always thinking ahead of any possible situation. Even with no power!! Yes my wedding venue lost power!

Great to work with, and helped us navigate COVID

It was super easy, only 2 phone calls and 2 emails. Susan got us an extra $300 credit, and very clearly explained and arranged the COVID stuff for us. Will definitely use them again.
