About Traci Elswick

I love helping families plan their own Disney vacations, and making sure kids (especially with special needs) have the most magical time possible. This is my calling in life!

I realized I could have my own niche of being in the “Middle of the Magic” planning Disney vacations – and so Middle of the Magic Travel was born.
