Inspiring Conversations with Lisa Harrington of Lisa Harrington Travel – An affiliate of Academy Travel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Harrington.

Hi Lisa, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I got started being a Disney Parks & Universal Studios Travel Planner by having a devoted love for all things fun! Disney is my escape, it’s my happy place to visit when I need a smile on my face, and the same for Universal Orlando! My official journey got started when I scored a once-in-a-lifetime interview with my host agency, Academy Travel Affiliates. I network like it’s nobody’s business day and night, every single day! I now have a collection of amazing clients I take care of and the happiness & flexibility that comes with being a Specialized Travel Planner. 

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?
It’s been a bit bumpy, with COVID-19, the Travel Industry had definitely taken a big hit, unfortunately. Luckily, I’ve been able to establish myself as restrictions have been lifted, and everyone is starting to take fun family & solo vacations again! I struggled with gaining a steady client base and establishing my brand, but it’s certainly gotten smoother. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Lisa Harrington Travel – An affiliate of Academy Travel?
My profession is Specialized Travel Planning! Disney Parks, Disney Cruise Line & Universal Studios Orlando, and Universal Studios Hollywood. I’m most proud of taking initiative and building my client base from scratch, I started my venture mid-COVID, and it’s been challenging at times with the Travel Industry taking a major hit but I’ve certainly been able to establish my mark in the Travel Industry. I offer Free Quotes and Itineraries for anyone looking to travel to these locations, and I’m always there for any questions, large or small; I have immense knowledge of Disney and Universal & any major travel concerns. My job means the world to me, and I look forward to helping anyone join in the magic with me! 

If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
I was a very shy, curious child with many quirks and hobbies. I enjoyed playing Video Games, playing “Scavenger Hunt” with my younger sister, and reading books.
