  Disney Authorized Vacation Planner - Middle of the Magic Travel

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! 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.) 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.
