If we haven't met before, Hi! I'm Kelli Smith, the magical memory maker behind Kelli Smith - Treadway Travel Company.
I live in Northeast Tennessee with my husband and our three boys. I fell in love with all things Disney when I was just knee-high to a grasshopper, but the obsession with Disney Destinations began in 2012. Taking my then 5-year-old to Disney World gave me a whole new appreciation for the magic of a Disney Vacation.
We spent as much time at the Disney Parks as possible from that moment on. And in 2016 I joined Treadway Travel Company as an Independent Travel Planner specializing in Disney Destinations and Universal Theme Parks.
I am so glad you are joining the community, and as Walt Disney once said - "To all who come to this happy place, welcome."

We wanted to let you know that our travel agent, Kelli Smith, did a fantastic job booking and organizing our family trip to Disney World! We found out about her early last fall when we visited The Mall at Johnson City. She had a booth set up promoting her expertise with Disney World.
Kelli started working on arranging our trip in late fall and kept in contact with us on a regular basis. She met with us twice and made sure of our needs and wants. She even gave our girls a lanyard, trading pens, a Disney book that we could use for autographs, pens, and a backpack!
Kelli told us she was going to be at Disney the same week and said for us to contact her if we needed anything. I did contact her with a couple of questions and she was so nice and helpful! We even saw her and her family at one of the parks!
Kelli is truly an asset to your company and you are blessed to have her! We will highly recommend her!”

I put my entire vacation plans in Kelli’s hands and I couldn’t be any more pleased! I didn’t have to worry about a single thing! She’s AMAZING!”

I’m not sure what my family and I would have done if we didn’t have Kelli! She was amazing and responded so quickly when we needed to change up our passes! Thank you Kelli you were a huge blessing to us and will be contacting you for our next adventure”

If you are trying to beat the heat during a summer visit try indoor attractions like Mickey’s Philharmagic, Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor, The Country Bear Jamboree or The Enchanted Tiki Room. They rarely have much of a wait time and are excellent places to cool off.
As people flock to see the parades and nighttime entertainment at each the Theme Parks at Walt Disney World Resort, the wait time for some of the most popular attractions tends to decrease!
Be sure to Meet Mickey Mouse in Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom Park, his magic tricks give him a little extra pixie dust!
If trying to squeeze Magic Kingdom Park into one day, be sure to prioritize which attractions are most important to your family!
Most people go left to Tomorrowland or straight towards Fantasyland once they enter the Theme Park, go right and start in Adventureland to avoid some of the crowds and enjoy lower morning waits.
If you are not staying at a Disney Resort, parking at the Theme Parks will be $20 per day. Stay at an on-site Resort to use Disney Transportation and park for free!
If you have little ones who aren’t tall enough to ride certain attractions, ask the Cast Member at that attraction for a rider swap, this will allow one adult to stay back with the small child while the others ride. When the first group is done, the next adult can take up to 3 people back thru the FastPass line to ride so that no one misses out on the fun!
Even if you have not purchased Memory Maker or other PhotoPass packages, Cast Members will be glad to take a picture with your camera or cell phone so that the entire family will in the photo!
You can take backpacks and small bags into the Disney Theme Parks. Pack some extra snacks to help your little one’s make it from meal to meal.
Make sure to pick up a celebration button from most Merchandise locations around the Theme Parks and Resorts. They’ll have First Visit, Happy Birthday, Happily Ever After(For engagements, marriages and anniversaries) and I’m Celebrating to help you celebrate any occasion!
