Amanda Beckett

 Vice President- Castle Vacations

Hi there! I manage the day-to day operations of Castle Vacations keeping all of our media up to date and our agents the best educated and organized in the business! As Florida resident,  I visit Disney World and Orlando area attractions weekly for “field research”. I am always on the lookout for new “tips and tricks” to share with our agents and my clients. 

We are a military family, and my husband continues to serve as a contractor after 20-years of Navy life. As a military spouse, I have learned the true value of family time -and I love helping families disconnect from the world and connect with each other on magical vacations all around the world!

I specialize in military travel, multigenerational travel and single parent travel.

Marilyn Jollon

Senior Travel Advisor

As a Nurse Practitioner, wife and Mom, I learned to be extremely organized with my time and budget. When I planned vacations for our family, they almost always included a multigenerational crowd. Because of my medical background I
am very sensitive to the abilities and limitations of people when traveling. I enjoy planning vacations where everyone feels special. I am happy to help you plan amazing adventures that you will remember for a lifetime.

Jeannine Bernardo

Travel Advisor

I have been hooked on Disney since my parents took me on my first trip at 12-years old. We went as a family twice, and then when I got married, I took my husband for our Disneymoon (his first trip)! Since having our three children we have made many trips together. We have traveled with and without grandparents, I’ve had a “Moms Only Weekend” and most recently an “Adults Only” trip to have fun at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival! When we are not in Orlando, you can find us relaxing beach vacation.

As you can see, I know what it’s like to travel with and without children and multigenerational travel. I also specialize in Universal Vacations! Theme park vacations not your thing? How about a cruise? What’s better than a floating all inclusive resort? Contact me today to discuss your next vacation. There is something out the to fit everyone’s needs. For travel tips and news, please follow my business page on Facebook.

Diane Schoepp

Travel Advisor

New to the travel world after having our first child and stepping back from “corporate America” to be a SAHM I decided I needed something to challenge and learning this world is fun and exciting. I’m an adventure seeking individual, I love traveling around the Caribbean scuba diving and under water photography. These days though it’s more of above the water photography. I was born into a Disney family, grandmother retired from Disneyland in the 70s. Growing up, I didn’t get to visit the parks as much until teenage years where we frequented Universal and Halloween Horror nights. Now with an infant in tow you will find us frequently at one of the Disney parks enjoying the rides or character dinning with Tigger and friends.

I am a former Walt Disney World cast member at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Wildhorse Saloon at Pleasure Island. I also worked in management at the Disney Springs hotels in Food & Beverage for many years. My days are filled building my Castle Vacations business platform, raising my two amazing and beautiful children, and running a home-based business consulting firm.

I currently live in Georgia, just north of Atlanta. My kids and I love taking road trips and enjoying the beauty the world has to offer. I have traveled to Jamaica, Italy, France, Switzerland, England, Alaska and most of the states along the eastern seaboard. We love to travel and experience new things. I can’t wait to spread our wings and continue to explore the world!

I thoroughly enjoy meeting and getting to know new people, hearing their stories and helping them make choices that suit their travel needs.

Gina Benitez

Travel Advisor

My love of travel started at a very young age and to be honest started with an obsession with Disney, my obsession for Disney remains. However, over the years that love has transformed to all things travel. For over most of my life I owned one of the largest, cutting edge, all-inclusive wedding planning companies in the U.S. After selling that business, I made the decision to become a travel agent. I have never been happier in my life! I love helping my clients have the vacations of their dream and in the process creating memories that will last a lifetime! My biggest passions for travel are Disney travel, destination weddings (since I am a wedding planner) and helping clients on a budget, because the reward of helping someone who didn’t think travel would be possible because of a restricted budget, is the greatest reward! Past clients have said that I am very attentive, creative, and timely when it comes to planning. My number one goal is making sure your vacation is everything you want it to be. I am looking forward to meeting you and getting started!
