Meet Lexy Elsethagen, ConciEAR Travel Planner and Former Cast Member!
I’m pleased to meet you all and I’m excited to become part of the ConciEARS team! I love Disney! Since my first trip to a Disney Park at the age of two, I’ve been a huge fan! My 90s childhood was full of Disney movies on VHS and family trips to Disneyland. In 2009, I became a second generation Disneyland Cast Member. A year later I visited Walt Disney World for the first time and transitioned into a cast member role there. I spent nearly seven years between both California and Florida as a Disney Cast Member.
Though I don’t have children of my own yet, I grew up visiting the parks with my parents and two younger brothers. We stayed in all three Disneyland Resort hotels during my childhood. We ate at Goofy’s Kitchen and planned out full park days. I was fortunate to have a mom that knew Disneyland so well because she worked there herself. Though I already felt like an expert when I started working for the Mouse, I learned a lot as a cast member.
When I started working at Walt Disney World, I was on my own to figure it out. I knew I would be asked all sorts of questions so I got to work riding all the rides and learning all the available transportation options. As a result, I know the rides well and I’m very good at getting around the property. I’ve been back to visit as a guest and I love how much easier it’s become with Magic Bands. I have also experienced the Magical Express more than once and have stayed in a couple Disney hotels on property.
Though I haven’t experienced the Disney Cruise Ships as a guest, I have worked aboard both the Wonder and the Fantasy. If you’re looking to cruise the Disney way, I can assure you it’s worth it. The food is great and the entertainment is just as magical as you’d expect. I’d highly recommend checking out Disney’s private island Castaway Cay as that was one of my favorite parts of cruising.
My time as a Disney Cast Member came to an end, but I’m not done making magic for guests. I still love playing tour guide and giving Disney Park advice. That’s why I knew I wanted to be a part of the ConciEARS team. I’m excited to help you build memories no matter where you want to visit. I’m ready to help plan your adventures, so please contact me at my email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a magical day!
