About Karen
I fell in love with Walt Disney on that first magical trip with my parents in the 1980s. Our vacation was filled with special moments with my Dad, family fun in a way we'd never quite experienced before, and a whole host of special memories I still carry with me. I was immediately hooked! Now, my husband and I love making those same memories every year with our own kids. Disney is a frequent topic of conversation at our dinner table, and we're always crafting a plan for what we'll do on our next trip. I travel to Walt Disney World several times a year, have been to Disneyland, have cruised on the Disney Cruise Line and have also been to Disney's Aulani Resort & Spa.

My focus is both on planning the perfect vacation specifically for your family and your needs, and taking the stress out of the process for you. Tailored to your budget and your family's tastes, I can take care of it all - from making your dining and Fastpass+ reservations to providing a detailed, personalized itinerary and everything in between. My recommendations are based on having personally stayed at all but one of Disney's resorts and having eaten at over 95% of the restaurants in the parks, resorts and Disney Springs.

With extensive experience planning trips for military families, families with special needs, large groups, families with wide age ranges, couple's getaways and girl's weekends, I plan each trip with the same attention to detail and eye for magical memories as I do for my own family.

I am a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, and have continued my Disney education both online and in trainings at Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise Line.

I'm fortunate to work for a wonderful agency, Magical Travel. Magical Travel is an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, and has been a part of the program since it's inception in 2004.
