About Us

As Walt Disney said... "it was all started by a mouse".  That's how the friendship between Maureen and Lynn, the co-owners of Ears To You Travel, began.

Both members of PassPorter Boards, an internet community of fellow Disney fanatics, Lynn and Maureen struck up a friendship outside of the chat rooms.  They found they had much in common and soon were chatting frequently.  We're not sure who suggested it, but soon they decided to meet at Walt Disney World for the first of many girls-only trips.  The rest, they say, is history as "Double Trouble" soon became an annual event.  With more than 40+ lifetime trips between them, they have stayed at most of the resort and dined at many of the wonderful restaurants of Walt Disney World.  They have experienced numerous special events throughout the years including the Flower and Garden Festival and the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, Star Wars Weekend at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom.  Lynn also had the pleasure of introducing Maureen to the joys of cruising... Disney style!

Lynn MiranteLynn was born and raised in idyllic Chester County, Pennsylvania and still makes her home there today.  She is a married mom of two who is fortunate to have family who loves everything Disney almost as much as she does.

Discovering the magic of Walt Disney World later in life, Lynn quickly made up for lost time with many trips!  Disney World is ever-changing and no two trips are ever alike.  From value resorts to the luxuries of deluxe concierge, multi-family and multi-generational trips to girls-only, she experienced the many different sides, seasons (and crowd levels) that Disney has to offer.  Planning is half the fun of any Disney vacation and Lynn has many helpful hints, tips and suggestions for making your vacation one that great memories are made of. 

Cruising is another passion and she can highly recommend the Disney Cruise Line as a fantastic vacation for both families and couples, both young and young-at-heart.  With more than 8 Disney cruises, she would love to share her experiences with you. A graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge, Lynn is also working towards her Accredited Cruise Counselor certification.  She is proud to have been a part of the peer-review team for both the PassPorter Cruise Line and Walt Disney World planning guides.
