Owner and Travel Advisor, Rochester, New York


I’m Amanda Mann

I still remember my very first Disney memory vividly. I was around 8 years old when I stumbled upon a biography of Walt Disney in a bookstore. Up until that point, I had only caught glimpses of Disney movies here and there, but this book completely captivated my heart and imagination. It ignited within me a burning desire to experience the magic of Walt Disney World firsthand.
Years went by as I daydreamed about my first trip to the enchanting world of Disney. Finally, the day arrived, and from that moment on, I was completely hooked. In fact, my passion for all things Disney grew so strong that I ended up working at the Walt Disney World resort during my college years. However, it wasn’t until later in life that I truly embarked on my own travel adventures.
Now, as a proud parent of two beautiful children, I make it a point to gift them with the joy of travel whenever the opportunity arises. I firmly believe that exploring new destinations and exploring as a family is a priceless treasure. 
But amidst all the incredible places we’ve visited, Disney Cruises hold a special place in our hearts. There’s something truly magical about setting sail on the vast ocean while still being able to experience the enchantment of Disney.

Life is an incredible journey, and we refuse to let it pass us by without exploring all that the world has to offer. So, we embark on new adventures, create everlasting memories, and embrace the magic of travel whenever and wherever possible!

My career as a travel advisor began in 2010.  I had a “good” 9-5 job but craved something in my life that bring back the passion I had working as a cast member for the Walt Disney World Resort.  While circumstances prevented me from relocating to Florida, I was determined to channel my passion for Disney into something extraordinary – helping others plan truly enchanting vacations! Armed with my knowledge of Walt Disney World, a deep understanding of guest service, and treasured memories from my time in the park, I knew I had all the ingredients to curate unforgettable experiences.

But it wasn’t just Disney that captured my heart – it was their unparalleled commitment to guest service that truly left me spellbound. The love affair intensified when I discovered the wonders of Disney Cruise Line. It was like stepping into the very essence of Walt Disney World, with all its magic and charm, but without the hustle and bustle of crowds. And the best part? I had the incredible opportunity to explore enchanting destinations far and wide – from the sun-kissed Caribbean to the majestic landscapes of Alaska. Sailing from extraordinary ports such as New York City and Vancouver only added to the thrill of discovering new horizons. With each adventure, my passion for travel and creating unforgettable memories grew stronger, inspiring me to continue this magical journey as a travel advisor.

“When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.”

Magic Maker!!

Amanda is a magic maker! This is our second trip planned by Amanda, and she always strives to ensure we have nothing to worry about. She takes care of all the planning, reservations, fast passes, and events. She makes thoughtful suggestions and provides and extremely detailed itinerary. Moreover, she promptly and thoroughly answers my MANY questions throughout the process. I recommend her to everyone and will always book with her. Thank you again for another magical experience!


She was so excited for us!

I truly can not say enough about the great service we have received from Living With The Magic. Amanda took on planning a trip for us that included 20+ people with different wants, needs and ideas. She pulled off every bit of it with ease! My husband and I used her again for a surprise trip for us and our children and again, by no surprise, BOOM! Out of the park service, no doubt! She took care of all the details. It was one the easiest trips we’ve had. One of my favorite things about her was her excitement she shared for my family. She cared for us as if we were old pals! Amanda turned my hesitant hubby into a Disney fan (Something I didn’t see possible)! In return, we’re fans of this great business! I’m looking forward to trips in the future with my kiddos where our family dreams come true and all made possible by someone I now consider a friend!


No way we could have planned without her!

Amanda took care of every detail for us and I mean EVERY thing. There would have been no way that we could have planned this vacation. We had a fabulous time watching our family have sooo much FUN! Best vacation ever – thank you, Amanda!


Greatest and easiest experience!

Working with Amanda was the greatest and easiest experience ever. When you are spending so much money on a Sandals vacation you need someone who knows the resort. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation!! I will totally come back for you to help me plan my next one!


Universally Amazing!

My family and I had to postpone our vacation last year due to unforseen circumstances to this year and Amanda has been a wonderful agent to work with. I highly recommend her. Have been booking with her for many years. She makes the process of vacationing easy. Thank you Amanda. Universal was great!!
