Melissa Bratton brings a lot of Disney experience to the table. Her love for Walt Disney World Resort started with her first trip at age 10. She was soon helping her family and friends plan trips before turning her passion into a career as a Travel Agent more than 12 years ago. Melissa excels at helping clients choose the best places to stay and eat and the best activities — all while getting the best bang for every buck.
Since her first trip to Disney, Melissa has enjoyed many more Disney vacations, including a school FBLA and a high school graduation trip all in one month in the summer of 1989! When she was in her early 20s, she traveled to Tampa for business and knew she couldn’t be that close and not visit Disney! She went down a day early, met up with a friend who was a former Cast Member and still lived in Orlando, and they spent the day at Disney.
In 2002, Melissa’s husband, Lance, asked her where she wanted to go for their last vacation together before their first child was born — a daughter due later that year. Her answer? Disney World, course. That vacation spurred one of her most special memories, she says.
“Lance and I were enjoying our day in the Magic Kingdom Park and decided to take a spin on the Astro Orbiter in Tomorrowland,” Melissa recalls. “The Cast Member told us to get in the same rocket, and we asked if he was sure we would fit. (I am 5’8″ and was six months pregnant at the time, and my husband is just over 6′.) The Cast Member assured us we would fit just fine, so we climbed into our rocket and off we went! For the record, two tall adults (especially when one is six months pregnant) do NOT fit comfortably in one rocket. I don’t think we have ever laughed as hard as we did while squishing each other on that ride! Every time we see the Astro Orbiter, we both laugh remembering that day!”
One day into the pre-baby trip and Lance was hooked on Disney! The Brattons have since had two children and have taken them on many Disney vacations: Disney World; Disneyland Resort; Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai’i, as well as Disney Cruises to the Baja Coast, Panama Canal, South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Canada, and Alaska. On a wedding anniversary a few years ago, Lance and Melissa spent 10 days in Peru on an epic Adventures by Disney trip. It’s safe to say the Brattons are a fully committed Disney family.
As a travel agent helping clients plan a wide range of vacations, Melissa has expanded her area of knowledge and her personal travel. In addition to planning trips for the full line of Disney Destinations, she plans trips to Universal Orlando and Universal Hollywood, European river cruises, beach vacations (and weddings) to properties owned by Sandals and Beaches, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line vacations, Norwegian Cruise Line vacations, European vacations, ski trips, and more.
Melissa is looking forward to helping more families plan for wonderful vacations to Disney and beyond.
what Melissa's clients say
From Roseann B.:
“We had a wonderful trip to Disney World with everything planned by Melissa. Everything she suggested was spot on. Our favorite night was at ‘Ohana at the Polynesian. We had a table in the corner of the restaurant where we could view the fireworks from Magic Kingdom. It was a special night for our daughter who turned 21. The meals and character dining were perfect for the big ones and the little ones! Great job Melissa!”

From Andrew B.:
“Melissa Bratton was our travel agent for the trip to Italy. Please know that Melissa seamlessly scheduled everything for us from the hotel, private drivers, and tours. Drivers and tour guides mostly met us at the hotel and provided a seamless, effortless trip for us. Travel can be stressful, especially internationally. Zero stress, y’all. It was pretty perfect. I highly recommend Melissa if you are arranging any trip, whether domestic or international. Disney fans? She’s got EVERYTHING Disney. 5 out of 5 stars!”
