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!

This or that:
  • Walt Disney World or Disneyland

  • 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

MyMagic+ is continually improving with the addition of new features.
