I have been enchanted by Disney since my mom took me to see Snow White at the movie theater when I was just a little girl. I was hooked! I dreamed of meeting my prince charming and riding off into the sunset, to our beautiful castle. Some years later, my husband made my fairy tale dream come true when he took me on my first Disney trip for our honeymoon.
Now we are a family of Disney lovers! We take our little prince and princess on family trips to Disney World and Disneyland a few times each year. I treat each trip as if it were the trip of a life time. At Walt Disney World, the Polynesian is my favorite resort. It’s like a entering a different world every time you walk through the resort doors. My favorite moment of every trip is the second I round the corner onto Main Street USA and get my very first glimpse at Cinderella Castle. It takes my breath away every time.
As much as I am in love with Walt Disney World, Disneyland in California holds my heart. The magic of Walt himself can be seen and felt all over Disneyland. It’s the first, the original—the park that Walt built. My newest Disney love has become runDisney! I ran my first half marathon in February 2012—it was the Disney Princess Half Marathon and one of my most magical Disney moments yet. I look forward to years and years of fabulous Disney vacation to come.
I will put the same care and detail into planning your dream vacation as I do into planning my family’s dream Disney vacations. Contact me today so we can get started!
My love of all things Disney started back in 1982 when my parents took me and my sister to Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. From that day, I fell in love with The Mouse and all that Disney encompasses! I visit Disney World annually. In addition, I am also a certified Universal Orlando Resort Specialist which means I can help plan your Universal Orlando Vacation as well!
I am proud to say that I have been an independent agent with Main Street Magic, LLC since its inception in 2014. I plan all of my client’s vacations as if they were my own, and give the same attention to detail as I would my own family. I have experiences with numerous resorts and try to stay at a “new-to-me resort” every time I visit Walt Disney World. The same goes for dining! Just like my clients, I like variety and try to dine at different restaurants each visit. If it’s a Counter Service, Table Service, or Signature Dining Experience, I have tried many restaurants and can offer helpful tips with planning where to dine.
From vacation planning, to dining reservations, to FastPass+ reservations, I can do it all…..AT NO COST TO YOU, regardless of your budget. I also work hard to find the best price for your vacation. In the event you book a vacation with me and a promotion is released, I will try my best to apply a discount for you if it is applicable to your vacation! If you would like to add a tour from the parks, I can also assist with behind the scenes tours, dessert parties, pirate cruises, and holiday parties. I also include a little “Disney Magic” when you book your vacation with me.
When I’m not busy planning vacations for my amazing clients, you can find me training for one of the many races that runDisney hosts. My biggest running accomplishment to date is the 2016 Walt Disney World Marathon. I said it would be my first and last marathon, but I have a few more on my radar!
Please feel free to contact me with questions about Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures By Disney, or Universal Orlando Vacations.
I wish I could say that I have been going to Walt Disney World since I was a child, but my first visit was in 2000 as a mom with two little children in tow who were also making their first visit.
We haven’t looked back~ we were hooked! As a mom, I love the lasting memories that we have as a family. I know that when we visit a Disney property we are experiencing the best customer service and getting the best value for our vacation dollars.
When thinking back on our first trip, I was SO overwhelmed by all of the planning- how to get there, where to stay, where to eat, what to ride- I was introduced to a Disney Travel Planner who took care of everything for me and at no additional cost to my family. I knew we were well taken care of. Fast forward 15 years and A LOT of Disney trips later, I began wishing that someday I could give back and help families the way I had been helped. Through the magic of social media and runDisney I was able to cross paths with Amy and found out that DREAMS really DO come true and joined the great team at Main Street Magic in early 2016. I have loved every minute since! I would love to help YOU make MAGICAL MEMORIES!

My name is Natalie Henderson and I am located in North Central Illinois. My love of all things Disney started at a very early age and has been instilled inside of me for as long as I can remember. Although I have great appreciation and love for all the Disney parks, Magic Kingdom is probably my favorite. There is no greater joy than walking down Main Street, U.S.A, smelling the sweet smells inside the confectionary, and seeing Cinderella’s castle for the first time (or hundredth). That feeling never gets old!
After being blessed with many trips to Disney through the years, I continue to pass the love on to my three daughters and husband. To say we are a “Disney obsessed” family could be an understatement! Between YouTube vloggers, online bloggers, online forums, our own experiences and experiences of friends and family we stay pretty up to date on the happenings of the mouse world even though we are so far away!
Planning magical trips for others and sharing the Disney love is a passion of mine and I will treat every family’s vacation as if it was my own!
