Carol has spent most of her life in Southern California and has many special memories of going to Disneyland with her family. As a child she would plan out her family's day trips to Disneyland, making an itinerary listing each attraction to visit. When an opportunity arose for her to work at Disneyland during college, she jumped at the chance and enjoyed two years as an official Cast Member. It was during this time that her interest in Disney history first began to develop. Since then she has filled her shelves with numerous books on Walt Disney and the Disney theme parks, and enjoys attending Disney conventions and taking tours to learn more about Walt's creative legacy. She has a Disneyland Annual Pass and is a member of Disney Vacation Club, Disney D23, and the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society.
Carol's first trip to Walt Disney World was on her honeymoon and she has returned to Orlando eleven times since, staying at various properties both on and off site. She has also sailed on the Disney Magic (Eastern Caribbean), Disney Wonder (Alaska, Bahamas and Mexican Riviera) and Disney Dream (Bahamas). Recently she vacationed at the beautiful new Aulani resort in Hawaii - ask her why she thinks this resort is a compilation of some of the most magical Disney experiences anywhere!
Carol has vacationed at Pop Century, Port Orleans Riverside, Caribbean Beach Resort, Beach Club Resort, Boardwalk Inn, Animal Kingdom Lodge, Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, the Disneyland Hotel, and the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. She has been helping clients plan their Disney vacations since 2007 (and unofficially even longer!). She is very budget conscious and will help you get the most value for your vacation dollar.CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING TO:

D.P. (Arizona)Carol Calip was a fabulous planner for our family's Disneyland vacation over this past Thanksgiving holiday.There were 9 of us. She was able to find 3 rooms for us for two nights at the on-property Grand Californian. What was remarkable is that it was on short notice during one of the busiest parts of the year.And her constant emails about the "secrets" to making reservations and understanding the "Disneyland System" were all invaluable. Our trip went off without a hitch. Everyone had a great time.We couldn't have done it without Carol's incredible help!If you asked for "star" ratings, all 9 of us would give her 5 our of 5!

My family is heading back from Disneyland now and I just want to say how incredibly helpful Carol C has been. It was our first trip to Disneyland and planning felt so overwhelming. I had reached out to a travel agent at a different agency that I’d worked with previously and she seemed uninterested in providing any guidance. Carol was the opposite; so thorough and helpful and knowledgeable as we tried to wade through hotels and dates. My son has autism and she really went the extra mile helping us navigate the disability access service, going out of her way to figure out the changes in the program so she could help us. And when I wanted to make a change she worked really hard to see if it could happen. I honestly felt like I had a Disneyland buddy this whole time.

Carol helped plan the best honeymoon from across the miles. She's a fellow Star Wars and Disney fan and was always in contact with us - from cost saving updates, advice for New Years Eve & Star Wars-y events at the parks and giving us insight to eateries across all the lands. Cast Members knew we were celebrating our honeymoon when our Magic Bands would be scanned. We want to thank Carol for all her hard work and continuous communication over the course of 6 months as we discussed many little perks to enjoy on our Magical and Epic trip. We have already referred her to 2 other friends, and look forward to her assistance in planning our Pandora vacation this summer!
