Donna Sharick




Hello, I’m Donna Sharick, owner of Dreams by Design Travel. My love of all things Disney started in 1987 when I won an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney World on a radio station. At the time, my Prince, Joe, and I decided to wait til our 2 yr old was 4, in 1989. We stayed at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and the Disney seed was planted!

I’ve enjoyed over 50+ trips to Walt Disney World Resort, several visits to Disneyland Resort, and 14 cruises on various cruise lines. Most recently, I attended the D23 Expo at Disneyland Resort! I’ve worked for various travel agencies over the years and decided that in order to provide the best possible care my guests deserve, it was time to open my own agency. I am thrilled to take my experiences and knowledge of traveling with children, ladies only trips and now empty-nesters, and share it with my guests. My motto is, if you can dream it, I can design it!

Donna was great. Worked with her for about a year for my family 2015 Walt Disney vacation. She would answer any and all questions in a timely manner. Helped to line up special dinning request for me when I was working. Would send me information about things going on in Disney during the time my family would be there. I will be using Donna again for my 2016 Star Wars Weekend vacation, May the Force be With You Donna!!!

My name is Gwen and we have booked travel with Donna Sharick. I cannot tell you how pleased I have been. She is amazing! In fact she just saved us nearly $1400 today by getting us on the Visa discount. Thanks so much for running such a great company….I have been telling all my friends how happy we have been.


Thank you for all of the help and attention to detail that you provided while we planned our inaugural spring break trip to The Walt Disney World Resort! The cadets had a terrific time, and with the help of your careful planning, helpful literature and attention to detail, planning was a breeze. We are planning that this will become an annual excursion and look forward to your expertise helping us along the way in the future!

Thanks so much. You are awesome!! Gotta be honest I was a little nervous about not being in control but you knocked it out of the park and got everything we wanted. Can’t say it enough. Thank you so much, you are making this trip FABULOUS for our family.

I’m so glad I was able to pass the business along to you. You are an amazing agent and I’m so glad you started your own company. I hope these (and future) referrals bring you lots of business:)

I wanted to write you. Its taken me over a month to fully come to appreciate our vacation you helped us plan. We are a family who has never taken such a grand trip, but it came at just the right time. Everything was just perfect and I will be forever thankful for the memories. Thank you for being so patient to help plan and answer any questions we had along the way. You gave us every tool needed to make for the perfect Disney experience.

Merry Christmas!

Seeking the best Disney travel agent? After years of trial and error; we found her! Donna Schoen Sharick This lady is awesome! She goes over and above! Any of you that know me know how I hate phones and why. Email with no issue. No matter the time of day or night or the day of the week; there was a reply within minutes. Not the normal; I’ll get back within a week or more if I must. She was always upbeat and on it! Wanted local services for some “special items” (to be named later due to surprise events). She made it happen. Need some special accommodations due to Cle and my limitations and an assured ADA room with shower in the section of our choosing (not Disney’s last thoughts assignment). She is on it! Answered my questions without hesitation. Just fantastic! Was even pleasantly surprised with the price. Especially with everyone complaining how the rates and all went up so this year.

I have used several travel agents in the past. AAA included. I recommend this lady over them all. We actually had a Christmas reservation, paid in full, lost a few years back. We were being reassigned to Lion King instead of our beloved Cars (a total no go). We had to take non-ADA rooms due to Disney mistakes. While Disney can be magical; they are human and make errors. With visiting hundreds of times; things go wrong! I shared these and other “mishaps” with Donna and she was right on it to get it taken care of so this year can be magical…..once again! She sent us a wonderful Disney care package (something in there for everyone and more), covered our Magic Maker and made sure everything arrived quickly.

Since Disney is but a stop on our summer travels; we can’t wait until the last minute for Disney to ship. We tried the resort pickup option and that didn’t work well. We have all our goods now, are ready to go and she made it happen! THANK YOU! Elizabeth Eaton, Rebecca Littlejohn, Dan Hudson and anyone else planning your first or next Disney adventure; give Donna Schoen Sharick a try. You won’t be disappointed!
