A vacation to Walt Disney World in May of 2012 was all Monica needed to convince herself that she wanted to help others plan their perfect Walt Disney World vacation. After returning home from her vacation, she found herself checking on wait lines and crowd levels even though she didn’t have a return trip planned. Monica sent an email to Stephen and Annette, co-owners of Build a Better Mouse Trip and asked how one becomes a Disney Travel Agent. Annette immediately offered her a position as one of their Disney Vacation Planners. She has been making magical moments for her clients ever since!
Monica is a graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge and has recently completed an Agent Education Program at Disneyland. Monica’s thirst for knowledge about Walt Disney World and Disneyland keeps her up to date with all the latest happenings at the destinations so she can keep her clients up to date as well. Having traveled several times to the World with her extended family of 17, Monica is our resident group expert. She knows which resorts and restaurants cater to larger groups as well as the ins and outs of travelling with a large group. Monica takes time to find out what is important to each client and personalizes each vacation based on their wants and needs.
Monica was a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom for 20 years before she re-entered the workface a few years ago. She has 3 princesses of her own so knows all the tricks for finding those princesses! She lives in Colorado Springs, CO with her 3 Disney-loving daughters and besides working as a Disney Travel Agent, she is an Administrative Assistant at an International Ministry. She is also an avid professional photographer and graphic designer, whose images can be seen at

What People Are Saying About Monica
I had the pleasure of working with Monica to plan my little brother’s first visit to DisneyWorld. She is hugely helpful, efficient, courteous and honest. I really appreciate her for putting our experience first and applaud you and your team for any training you give and the values you instill. I’ll definitely be recommending Build a Better Mouse trip, and specifically the magical Monica, to everyone who wants to go to Disney!
Monica, There's no other way to say it: I think you are AWESOME!! I've unsuccessfully attempted to work with other travel agents in the past couple of years and no one has provided the level of service and information you have. The volume of research I've had to do on my own to plan my trips has been exhaustive. I wish I found you sooner! I'd probably be a lot less crazy and have so many hours back in my life and all my family's trips would have still been just as magical - Sherri S., from Maryland
Monica has always gone above and beyond what we expect from a travel service. Without using your service we would have only gone to Disney twice. Monica is a true expert on all things Disney and we constantly direct friends and family to your website and recommend contacting Monica. She is a joy to work with and we look forward to booking many more vacations with her in the future. - Ryan M., from Iowa
I wanted to say thank you! My family and I have had a truly WONDERFUL experience working with Monica! She is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I'm sure we've driven her crazy with all of special requests and needs, with our eclectic group, and yet she always is kind and patient. She has continued to answer several questions and check rates on different combinations of accommodations, above and beyond our reservation. I feel she saved us money, and has provided a tremendous amount of suggestions (tailored to our likings). We are so excited about our trip and have much less traveling anxiety knowing we have a true professional steering us in the right directions. When we go back to Disney again, I can only hope she will once again help us plan a magical trip. - Meghan S., from Illinois
