From the age of 2 most of my family vacations were to Disney World, which is where my love for everything Disney began. I currently live in Loudoun County, VA with my husband, our two sons and daughter. After meeting my husband I introduced him to the world of Disney vacations, and not surprisingly he fell in love with it just as much as I did.

Aly Hirst

Lead Concierge Travel Planner

Hi, I’m Aly Hirst, a Lead Concierge Travel Planner at Living With The Magic Vacations! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a Disney-obsessed gal. My first trip to Walt Disney World was at the age of 3, and I’ve been countless times since then. I was thrilled when I learned about the Disney College Program and was given the opportunity to work at Disney’s BoardWalk for a semester in college while still earning credit toward my degree. At the time, it was my dream to move back to Florida after graduating from UMass with my B.S. in Hospitality and Tourism Management in 2005, but other opportunities in the hotel industry brought me to DC before settling in southeastern Pennsylvania where I live now with my husband, our two daughters, and our crazy labradoodle. I knew once I started my family that my new dream was to become a Travel Agent specializing in Disney Destinations, and I’ve turned that dream into a reality. It brings so much joy to be able to help my clients plan an incredible vacation – whether it’s to Walt Disney World, a Disney Cruise, an all-inclusive vacation, or even beyond these destinations… There’s nothing more exciting to me than hearing clients tell me how they could have never planned their trip without my help. I absolutely love what I do and can’t wait to help you plan your next memorable adventure!

Andrea Trelles

Lead Concierge Travel Planner& Certified Autism Travel Professional™

HI! I am Andrea Trelles, travel agent with Living with the Magic Vacations. I love to travel and I LOVE all things Disney.

Growing up in Florida, my family and I visited Walt Disney World several times a year. From riding 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea to visiting Mickey Mouse and eating our way through Epcot, our family time was magical each visit. Though the attractions have changed over the years, the real magic of Disney has not. Bringing families together and making memories for a lifetime is true joy.  I have enjoyed taking my husband and then my own family to Disney over the last 17 years and making new memories. We hugged Mickey and every Princess on my twins first visit at age 3. We welcomed my husband home from a deployment and surprised our kids with a little help from Darth Vader and the Jedi at Hollywood Studios. And I cried a flood of tears watching my son with autism watch fireworks for the very first time in the park! As a homeschool mom we have completed many lessons at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot – there is so much to learn and discover in the parks. My family has thoroughly enjoyed our Disney Cruises as well, snorkeling in sparkling waters and even swimming with dolphins and sea lions!

I am so excited to share not only my love of Disney with you but also my love of travel. The world is a vast place to explore and I believe in broadening our horizons. There are so many destinations to explore and I can’t wait to help find the right one for you!

Kelly VanEerden

 Lead Concierge Travel Planner

Hi! I’m Kelly Van Eerden, a travel agent with Living with the Magic Vacations. I currently live in Jenison, Michigan with my husband, daughter, and son We love to travel and one of our favorite destinations is Walt Disney World.  I grew up visiting Walt Disney World with my family and continued the tradition with my children.  From the first time they saw Cinderella’s Castle at the age of 4 and 7, they were hooked and still are 13 years later!  As the kids have grown up, we have continued to explore new destinations as well. We went to Universal Orlando as a family in 2019 and on our first Disney Cruise in 2020.  We look forward to exploring more destinations as a family this coming year.  I love being able to get away as a family to relax and recharge from the day to day activities that keep us busy.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and multiple food allergies in 2012.  It has impacted how we plan to travel but not how often we travel.  I still want to be able to experience new things with my family so I research before we go.   Disney destinations and Universal Orlando have been amazing with my allergies.  Both Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando are willing to speak with you before the meal and take precautions when cooking your food.  On the Disney Cruise, having the same waitress for every meal who knew my allergies made it less stressful.  When you can tell the chef or person placing your order understands your allergies, you feel like you can finally relax and enjoy yourself!  I am also excited about traveling to Beaches and Sandals destinations because of how they handle allergies.  They are able to respond to emails before you go and they also speak with you before you order to ensure a safe meal for you.  There are so many other great destinations that work well with allergies that I hope to explore sometime soon.

Travel to me is an important way to connect as a family and recharge for everyday life.  I have planned numerous vacations and love that I can share my love of exploring new places with my clients as I help them make memories that will last a lifetime.  I look forward to using my personal experience to help make your dream vacation a reality.
