Hello, I'm Michelle.

I have always had a passion for traveling, and I believe it is good for the soul. My goal is to help you create lifelong family vacation memories.

Whether you are planning a theme park adventure, cruise, or beach vacation, I will provide concierge-level travel services that will enhance your experience and take the stress out of planning your vacation. I will help with everything you need, from dining reservations to resort accommodations to personalized trip itineraries, so you can focus on making family memories!

I have over 20 years of travel planning experience, including more than 10 years as a professional travel agent. I am a Disney College of Knowledge graduate and have also completed training programs for Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and most major cruise lines. I frequent trips to Walt Disney World and Disneyland and have participated in several runDisney events. I also enjoy the Universal theme parks and their larger-than-life thrill rides. I have a vast knowledge of cruising, having sailed on all of the Disney Cruise ships, as well as many of the Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and Norwegian ships, traveling to destinations in the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Alaska, and Europe. 

I am an alumna of the University of Nebraska and hold a degree in Business Management, and currently live in Plattsmouth, Nebraska, with my husband and three children: Sam, Alden, & Clair. When I'm not exploring new travel destinations to share with you, I am usually found cheering on my kids at their school and community activities, coaching our High School Speech Team, or attending Husker sporting events! You can also listen to me on Rope Drop: On Deck, a weekly podcast all about cruise planning which I co-host with my husband, Doug.

Let my experience be your guide! Contact me today if you're ready to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Client Testimonials

“Considering myself tech-savvy, independent, and informed, there was a time in my life that I wondered why people would use a travel agent when the internet is at their finger tips. Over 10 years ago, I began researching my family’s first vacation to Disney, and the volume of information online was overwhelming to say the least. I thought of the person I know who is most knowledgeable about Disney, and that was Michelle. Michelle met with me to discuss our travel goals, budget, and preferences. She navigated all the highly-customized planning, setting up everything from reservations to accommodations to tickets and experiences, and provided me with a clear itinerary plus so many amazing tips on how we could maximize our enjoyment. Since that first trip, Michelle has booked all of our family’s vacations, including cruises and all-inclusive resorts. It has never cost us anything extra to book with her – in fact, she often finds rates that are less than what we would’ve spent booking it ourselves. So why would anyone use a travel agent when they can book online? Michelle saves you time, money, and hassle, and you will have a better vacation as a result of her leg work and superior customer service.”

“Our family has loved working with Michelle McKnight to plan vacations! She is incredibly knowledgeable about all of the destinations she books and has made each of our Disney World and cruise vacations a success. From finding discounts we would have never known existed, to sharing tips and tricks to enhance each of our experiences, to providing exceptionally timely, personalized and accurate assistance, all of our vacations have been far more magical - and easier for us to enjoy! - when booking with Michelle.”

“Michelle is a perfect fit for my travel needs, whether it's a trip to WDW or planning a cruise. I am details oriented and she is right there with me, handling all the details I need taken care of. She is extremely knowledgeable and can answer every question. She responds quickly to my emails and that alleviates so much anxiety for me. I know she is keeping an eye out for discounts and ways to save me money. So happy TouringPlans started offering this service. I love to travel and am thrilled Michelle is there to help me.”
