About Sharyn Kaye Travels: We specialize in honeymoons, destination weddings, and group travel.

I got into the business because I’m a Disney geek and love Walt Disney World. I discovered that I also loved helping people plan their first trip to Disney. I started the business and immediately started teaching through local community education classes.

From there, I learned about cruises, honeymoons, and destination weddings. And that’s where we are today.
