Magic Managed has four agents to assist with your planning needs.

Lonna Hays: Lonna is the founder and owner of Magic Managed. Her first big family trip was in September 2015 when her boys were 2 and 3–and it was a massive multi-generational trip with a huge learning curve and intensive planning. It quickly led to a passion for the strategy of Disney planning. She started Magic Managed in March 2017 to share what she had learned with others–and has planned over 400 trips since! Her favorite resort is the Contemporary, favorite character is Tink, and favorite ride is a tie between Slinky Dog and Expedition Everest. She is also a Magic Kingdom girl at heart. For her, the appeal of Disney is the mix of magic, whimsy, strategy, and practicality–which is a perfect fit for her personality and strengths. Contact Lonna to get started!

Adrienne Bailey: Adrienne lives in Charlotte, NC where she grew up. She has three boys, ages 7, 5 and 2. She met her husband, Max, in Raleigh where they both attended NC State University. Go Pack! She loves to travel, especially anywhere with a beach, and has been to Disney World many times and Disneyland. Her favorite resort at Disney World to date is Bay Lake Towers at Disney’s Contemporary Resort because of the walkability to Magic Kingdom. It’s hard for her to choose a favorite park because each one holds a favorite ride, experience, or restaurant. Some of her favorite things to do at Disney are the PeopleMover in Tomorrowland, tackling all the mountains in Magic Kingdom, eating her way through the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, enjoying a cocktail at Oga’s Cantina in Galaxy’s Edge, Pandora everything in Animal Kingdom and hanging out with Donald, Daisy and friends at Tusker House before catching a glimpse of the Yeti at Expedition Everest. While she has her must do traditions, like eating a Dole Whip while exploring the Swiss Family Treehouse, she also enjoys trying the latest restaurants, rides, and shows each visit to better service her families.

And when she’s not at Disney, you can bet that she is reading blogs, listening to podcasts or talking about Disney with other Park enthusiasts. Her passion for organization, spreadsheets, and planning the perfect itinerary has made Magic Managed a great fit and she can’t wait to help you plan a magical vacation for your family.
