Hi! My name is Jessica Bearden and I am Travel Planner at Wonderland and Beyond Travel.
I am from Dahlonega, Georgia, a little town just north of Atlanta. My Husband, Matt, and I have been married 15 years and we have two girls, Emma and Maggie. My entire family shares a LOVE for Disney and Universal Studios, which is why I have decided to make Orlando Florida Destinations my Specialty with Neverland and Beyond Travel.
I grew up visiting my grandparents in Orlando, and spent many a day at Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, and even the now non-existent Wet N Wild water park. This love for all things theme parks grew, as I got older. My husband and I vacationed a few times together before we were married, but around 2009 we decided to join the Disney Vacation Club and have never looked back. We have visited Disney World so many times I’ve lost count! But I can guarantee I am an expert!
I took my girls to Universal Studios Orlando for their first trip last summer and we’ve been hooked ever since! We even became passholders and have been back several times since!
Travel Planning and helping friends and family get the most out of their vacation has become a passion of mine and I can’t wait to help you! It could be something as simple as booking a hotel at your chosen destination. Or planning a Disney Vacation and making your Dining Reservations, Fastpass Reservations, and even stroller rentals! I can take all the stress out of planning your trip!
Let me share with you my knowledge of all things Orlando, and as always, my services are completely FREE!
Favorite Snack: The Popcorn!
Favorite Quick Service: Satu’li Canteen (the Chicken Bowls with the chimichurri sauce is AMAZING!!)
Favorite Ride: Flight of Passage.
Favorite Character Meal: The Garden Grill ( I love the classic characters in their “farming” outfits and the freshness of the food!)
Favorite Resort Hotel: My favorite resort is the Polynesian. I absolutely love every single thing about this resort and you cannot beat the location! As soon as you step out of the lobby you are looking directly at Cinderella’s Castle. There is nothing like swimming in the pool at night and watching the Fireworks with the music being played throughout the resort.
Favorite Memory: Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
