Behind the Agent

Hey, guys! I’m Gina. I’m the owner of The Charming Travel Co.! I’m a mom of two. I love bubble tea and all things Disney. I’m a proud Gryffindor and a big Marvel and Star Wars fan. In my free time, I love cooking — but mostly eating, building Legos, crocheting, embroidery, playing my Nintendo Switch, and learning random things!

Our family actually has a 10 year plan of destinations we want to travel to! We were really fortunate to check off, Disneyland Paris, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Gibraltar, and Pompeii last summer! It was super fun getting to experience a whole new Disney park on our list! The whole experience was so much fun. We can’t wait to start planning this summer! 

When I graduated high school, my family went to Florida for a celebratory trip. We went to Disney World and we had no idea what we were doing. We didn’t have any dining reservations or know how to use the Fast Pass system…. It was definitely a learning experience! Fast forward another 7 years and we were planning our first trip with my daughter, I learned from our previous mistakes and did a ton of research to make that a fun trip — on our way home from that trip I told my husband that my dream job was to be a travel planner. I never would have imagined that I would be able to live my dream one day!

I would have to say: Spontaneous, Distinct, Fun.

Our family likes exploring things off the beaten path. When we visited Barcelona, we stopped by the breathtaking La Sagrada Familia and were met with crowds and crowds of people. Instead, we decided to visit Casa Vincens – One of the first houses commissioned by Gaudi and got to enjoy a much more intimate experience and significantly lower crowds! 

Enjoy everything. Take the time to stop and check out the details. That’s part of what makes Disney so unique. All of the tiny details and thought that has been put into the design of every show, ride, and parade. There is SO much to experience! Also, don’t try to do everything all in one trip – There is going to be so much more than you can discover in one trip. That’s part of the magic that is Disney. It grows with you and your family!

I am absolutely in love with Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights! The production value is just phenomenal. I am normally such a scaredy-cat and totally NOT a horror girl, but I really love the whole Halloween Horror Nights experience! Will I watch the shows/movies or play the video games? Absolutely not! But I truly enjoy HHN!
