What was your dream job when you were 10 years old? Radio DJ or florist

Why did you become a travel agent? I’ve always been a bit of a planner, type A person, and I was always helping friends/family members with their trips, so I decided that maybe I should branch out & make it my official job so I could help other people as well! I love helping my clients make their travel dreams come true!

Favorite vacation destination? Italy, but the Polynesian Resort at WDW is a close 2nd!


This or that:
  • Walt Disney World or Disneyland
  • Caribbean cruise or Mediterranean cruise
  • Mickey or Minnie
  • Monorail or Skyliner
  • Mickey pretzel or Mickey ice cream…can I pick Dole Whip instead?!
  • Star Wars or Avatar
  • Tomorrowland or Fantasyland
  • Rollercoaster or dark ride
  • Rope drop or close down the park
  • Mickey’s Not So Scary or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas
  • Flower and Garden or Food and Wine—I seriously can’t pick!! I love both so much!!
Disney Favorites:
  • Park: Epcot on a girls trip (World Showcase=fun food and drinks) but Magic Kingdom if I’m with my kids
  • Disney Resort: ​Polynesian—it’s my home away from home!
  • Disney restaurant: Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge—I love the indoor/outdoor feel of the restaurant. You feel like you are away at a lake somewhere—it’s awesome!
  • Photo spot: Anywhere at the Polynesian Village Resort
  • Character: Mickey & Dopey are my favorites!!
Earliest Disney vacation memory?  I remember being around 8 years old & riding Pirates of the Caribbean with my parents & little sister and just loving every second of it. I will never be able to visit Disney & not ride Pirates—it’s tradition!

Disney experience that brings tears to your eyes? ​Seeing my kids experience all of the magic of Disney & making new memories with them & my husband

While working with Kingdom Konsultant Travel for the last 5 years, I have enjoyed helping clients plan family vacations, family reunions, honeymoons, anniversary trips, girls/guys getaways & destination weddings. Each of these experiences has provided me with different perspectives that have helped shape my overall vacation planning knowledge and expertise. Whenever possible, I try to apply those different perspectives when I help clients plan their vacations so that their experience is tailored to their unique interests and circumstances. I truly love what I do, and I look forward to helping you plan your next vacation! karen@kingdomkonsultant.com

If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando

The hottest trend in the ultimate Disney vacation is utilizing local vendors who are/or used to be Disney Cast Members to enhance your trip.  There are a wide variety of services and products you can get from these wonderful people, so we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites that we have personally utilized and would recommend.

You can even upgrade to include beautiful keepsakes.  What makes them especially great is the ability to suit so many dietary concerns.  They create any food style or allergy from
