Karen Stoner

Show Host

It’s no coincidence that Karen and Walt Disney World were born in the same month and year.  In fact, only 25 days apart.  Perhaps this was a sign of things to come.  While Karen’s love for Disney formed at a very young age, she could never imagine that her professional career would revolve around Disney.

In 2007, Karen founded “My Mickey Vacation Travel”, which is now a Platinum Level Authorized Disney Vacation Planner company.  Karen has personally created magical and memorable vacation experiences for hundreds of families.   

Doctor Disney (Danny)

Show Host

Danny was born and raised a boy who simply loved Disney and went to WDW every single year with his family. As he grew up, he found new hobbies with sports and writing, but Disney always stayed close to the top. 

Now, he’s known as Doctor Disney and brings the best news, info, pics, and more to those who enjoy Walt Disney World, Disneyland, DCL, and everything having to do with the mouse.

Stacey Cox

Show Host

Stacey was one of those kids who didn’t just grow up on Disney, but she grew up IN Disney. There was never a year or even a full summer that her family didn’t head down from Kentucky and spend a lot of time in Walt Disney World.

Now, she lives right behind Magic Kingdom and can go even more often, but it never once loses its pixie dust. While personally loving every single thing that each Disney Park, especially Disney Cruise Line, has to bring, she loves bringing the magic to everyone else too.

Jeff Stoner

Show Host

Jeff’s first visit to Walt Disney World was within a year of its opening.  One park and two resorts.  Since then, Jeff has been a huge fan of WDW watching it through every step of its expansion from that first year. Jeff has recently rediscovered his love for Disneyland, as well, and has sailed the ships of Disney Cruise Line many times.

Jeff’s full time duties are as the Operations Manager of My Mickey Vacation Travel, and he absolutely loves talking about Disney and mentoring those who build their businesses around the brand.
