About Pat Kinzer Mancuso

In her previous life, Pat Kinzer Manuso was a secretary. Today she is an independent contractor for the full-service Odyssey Travel agency in Skippack, Pennsylvania, where she operates Pixie Dust Tours.

Founded in 2005, Pixie Dust Tours operates memorable trips and vacations to many locations, but specializes in trips around Pat's two favorite themes: Disney and the Beatles. Her love for both Disney and the Beatles inspired her to become a travel agent so she could share her knowledge and expertise with others.

Disney destinations—both Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida—have been favorites of Pat's over the years, and she has visited these parks more than adozen times. Her love of Disney started when she was a young girl and fan of the Mickey Mouse Club. She personally met some of the club's original members: Annette Funicello, Jimmy Dodd, Doreen Tracey, and Tommy Cole. And now, as a graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge, Pat is a qualified Disney Specialist.

Pat also specializes in trips involving all things Beatles, and has been to England at least six times—to visit sites where the Fab Four lived, played, and performed. Pat holds the unique distinction of being president of the official George Harrison Fan Club from 1964 to 1972, and brings a qualified perspective when organizing these trips. She even visited George twice at his home and spent time hanging out at Abbey Road Studios.  She even published a book about her fan club days.

Pat lives in Trappe, Pennsylvania with her husband, Tony, and their lovely, black cat Eboni. In addition to running Pixie Dust Tours, she enjoys writing, traveling, scrapbooking, volunteering for the elderly, and attending Beatles-related concerts with friends.
