What we do


Every vacation tells a story.  It is our desire to assist you in weaving the story of your vacation dreams. Once Upon a Vacation Travel Advisors ask questions and listen to your desires in order to present a custom package that will exceed your vacation dreams.


Once Upon a Vacation Travel Advisors make it their job to be on top of all the latest travel news. They travel often to experience resorts, parks, restaurants, cruise lines, dream destinations, and events first hand. They scour the internet for discounts, news, and planning tips to pass on to their clients. All of this research saves you time, headache, and hassle. Yes, it's a tough job but we love it!

Your personal concierge

We will continue to monitor your vacation package until your travel dates looking for any new discounts or promotions that may apply. If a discount becomes available, we will add it to your package and let you know your savings! You will speak with the same travel planner every time you call or email. And, we make it a priority to be here both before and during your trip.

Mindy Horner | Owner
Mindy opened Once Upon a Vacation in 2012 after her “side gig” of planning Disney vacations evolved into a full time career.  With the addition of each knowledgeable travel advisor, the OUAV team expanded into a full service travel agency. Beyond all things Disney, we now also have experts in European destinations, Hawaii, Caribbean escapes, and multiple cruise lines.  Mindy is over the moon excited to also have a certified autism travel professional on the team enabling us to provide outstanding support and travel related services to an individual on the autism spectrum as well as their family. These days Mindy spends the majority of time taking care of the needs of her team so they can take care for the needs of our clients.  However, she still offers planning services to her repeat clients and direct referrals.
