Alkar Travel Agents Specializing In Disney Destinations
Tammie is the Director of Family Travel, and lead agent specializing in Disney Destinations and family travel with Alkar Travel in Glen Allen, VA, An Authorized Disney Vacation Planner Agency. As a graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge I have trained extensively in Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, Disneyland and Disney’s newest resort, Aulani in Ko’ Olina, Hawai’i.
In 2011 I participated in an onsite agent education program at Walt Disney World, spending a week touring the cruise ships, resorts, parks and participating in a variety of “backstage” activities. In January 2013 I continued to expand my Disney knowledge by participating in an onsite Disneyland agent education program. As Alkar’s agent specializing in Disney Vacations, I will continue my expanding my knowledge each year by, continuing education programs, personal experiences with the Disney Parks and Cruise Lines, and by attending Disney’s Annual Earmarked Conference, a special event exclusively for Authorized Disney Vacation Planner Agencies.
In December 2012 I was honored to be one of the agents from around the country that was invited by Disney to attend the Grand Opening Press Event for the New Fantasyland expansion in Magic Kingdom, the park’s first expansion in 41 years. I can’t wait to share the new features with you!
I have personally stayed at every level of Walt Disney World resort from the campground in an RV, to Moderate and Deluxe Villa accommodations, as well as all three of the Disneyland resorts. I have also sailed on 3 of 4 DCL ships. If you have a question about Disney, I have the answer. I would love the opportunity to help you make your vacation Magical.
