For today’s installment of “Coffee and Conversations,” we’re joined by special guest Laurie Martz of Travel and Tours Unlimited. 

Over the years, Laurie has helped me plan a lot of awesome Disney vacations over the years, so I felt compelled to bring her on and let her explain a little more about what she does. 

Laurie has been in business for 20 years helping families make dreams come true. Having grown up with Disney herself, Laurie says it’s something that is very special to her. She actually visited Walt Disney World the very first year it was open. 

“We’re all really busy in our day-to-day lives, and vacations are something everyone looks forward to. […] Making memories with the people you love is really important,” says Laurie.

Speaking of families, Laurie raised her own children right here in Carroll County. She says this community is very important to her, so she loves serving it with her business. And in the 20 years Laurie has spent helping local families plan their Disney vacations, she has learned quite a few things most people might not know about the parks. 

“Lauri has been in business for 20 years helping families make dreams come true.”

According to Laurie, a lot more goes into planning these trips than most people think. She does recommend that families use itineraries, but also says there are many secrets to be discovered throughout the parks if you take the time to really explore. The Keys to the Kingdom tour, for example, is one hidden activity Laurie highly recommends for park goers 16 and over. 

Of course, your trip doesn’t have to be to Disney World. Laurie helps people plan trips of all kinds.
