We spend our vacation time at Disney, so we can bring the magic to yours!

Our team is a blend of Annual Passholders; Platinum, Gold, and Silver Castaway Club members; and we even have former Cast Members on board. All of our planners are graduates of Disney's College of Knowledge, and also attend our annual conference for training, team-building, and tinkering with ways to make our clients’ vacations simple, seamless, and stress-free!

Traci Elswick
Traci ElswickOwner & Specialist of all things Disney Travel

After working with a wonderful travel agency for over five years, the most exciting thing happened: my husband got a job in Orlando and we moved to Disney (well, almost) to a home where I can see the Disney fireworks from our backyard! When I realized I could have my own niche of being in the middle of the magic planning Disney vacations in Mickey’s backyard, Middle of the Magic Travel was born.

From 2016 through 2017, I served on Disney’s Earmarked Program Travel Advisory Council. In a select group of 20 agency owners, I feel so blessed to have been chosen!

Location: Orlando, FL
Specialty: Making sure kids, especially those with special needs, have the most magical time possible; this is my calling in life!
