Community Highlights: Meet Lindsey Mueller of Your Adventure Awaits Travel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lindsey Mueller.

Hi Lindsey, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Thank you so much for having me! My name is Lindsey and I am a Disney travel planner and blogger who’s lived in Los Angeles for over 15 years. I’ve been a dreamer as far back as I can remember and the greatest dream of my life was actually to move here!

I grew up in a small suburb in Wisconsin, and travel was always very important to my family. Even though we didn’t have a ton of money, we would figure out at least two driving vacations to take each year. I think it was this exposure that propelled me to dream BIG. I’ll never forget the first time I visited MGM Studios (now Hollywood Studios) in Walt Disney World. It was the closest I would ever come to visiting Los Angeles in real life and it didn’t take long for the dream of working in Hollywood one day to take root. As soon as I graduated from UW-Madison, my family piled into a U-Haul and moved me out to the City of Angels (even though we still had never gotten as far as California). And the first thing we did upon arriving? Disneyland, of course!

It took a while for me to land my first job in Hollywood but after three years, I finally did. Since that time, I’ve gotten to work on some of the biggest films and television shows of the last decade. But my love for travel never left me. Even though I had my dream job in my dream city, I wanted to do even more. So in 2018, I launched my own travel agency, Your Adventure Awaits Travel. Given what a huge role my family’s vacations played in my life (and specifically Disney vacations), I wanted to help make the same opportunities available to families of future generations. Who knows, that five year old’s next trip to Disneyland or Walt Disney World could spark a dream that changes the course of their life, just like it did mine.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have been many struggles to get where I am today but the most recent has been figuring out how to navigate a Disney travel business in the midst of a global pandemic. This has led me to create a new kind of travel that I’m calling “Disney Inspired Travel”. Throughout 2020, I was determined to find Disney magic in safe ways outside of the Disney theme parks – and I found them! I started creating Disney inspired road trips for places like Wyoming and Route 66 and started looking for local places in Los Angeles that inspired Walt Disney to dream his ultimate dream: Disneyland! Finding so many places in LA that inspired Walt and other Disney Imagineers over the years has truly been a full circle moment for me.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Your Adventure Awaits Travel is a full-service travel agency specializing in Disney vacations worldwide. It was created to take the guesswork out of Disney vacation planning. As a first-timer, it can be incredibly overwhelming to navigate the world of Disney travel and I wanted to help alleviate this pain for my clients. What sets my agency apart from other Disney travel agencies are the custom itineraries I create. I help my clients come up with a strategic approach for each Disney theme park based on their interests and current park trends; and I go the extra mile for them by carefully mapping out hour-by-hour recommendations (should they want them).

What do you like and dislike about the city?
To me, Los Angeles symbolizes endless possibilities. It’s a city full of dreamers, just like me. It’s a city where anything is possible. And it’s a city with such a rich history. I love how many places there are to explore and how many new opportunities arise every day. In an incredibly tough year, Los Angeles has revived my spirit. I’m incredibly grateful to live here and can’t wait to continue exploring all of the Disney magic left to uncover in this fabulous city!
