Amanda Sipes is a Travel Planner based in Ellwood City, PA with her husband, Joe and her two kids, Izzy and Alton.
Amanda’s family truly runs on all things Disney. Amanda’s day job is being a director administrator in a sales division of a Top 10, Fortune 500 company, which basically means Amanda is always organized and always planning things!
Amanda loves photography, crafting and reading. If Disney Karaoke could be her career, she’d totally do it! Amanda has planned Disney vacations for her family of four all the way up to large groups of 15+!
Amanda’s favorite thing about Disney vacation planning is staying up to date with what is going on at the parks and helping families and friends create magical memories that last a lifetime. She is always planning a trip for myself… but if it isn’t soon… she loves to live vicariously through the experiences of her clients! Amanda truly loves sharing her Disney knowledge with others!
Amanda has many favorite Disney memories…
Her favorite memory as a child was standing in front of the castle waiting for a show and someone came and took her dad away… she had no clue where he was and her mom was worried when the show started and he hadn’t returned. She watched the show and waited for him to return, then Roger Rabbit started dancing and they announced his new friends… one was her dad… on stage in a crazy shirt, a tux coat with tails and a trucker hat with a giant stuffed Roger Rabbit on it! He danced with a cast member and Roger Rabbit and then got to keep the hat and shirt! Amanda won every crazy hat contest for years to come!
As an adult, Amanda’s favorite memory was seeing her children see the castle for the first time, and seeing the magic through their eyes… it’s a moment she’ll never forget!
