Back in the mid-'90s, Linda and her husband moved to Florida. Her husband encouraged her to apply for a job at Disney to be the opening day DVC guide at Vero Beach. Her career has had her working at Vero, Bay Lake Tower, and Saratoga Springs, and she spent over six years as a guide on Disney Cruise Line. She's worked over 200 cruises for DVC. While Linda did get called back to work when DVC re-opened after the pandemic, she eventually decided to retire from Disney and transition to working at DVC Resale Market.
