Do you want adventure in the great wide somewhere? Do you want it more than you can tell? Do you want much more than this provincial life?
Hi! My name is Karen, and as you can probably tell, my favorite Disney Princess is Belle! Who’s yours? My husband prefers to find a Whole New World or a Galaxy Far Far Away. I cannot express how much I love Disney and experiencing all the magic the parks and resorts have to offer.
My husband and I are located in Northern Kentucky just outside of Cincinnati, Oh. I have been to Disney five times beginning at the age of 12. I can still remember the excitement of my first Disney trip. It felt like all my dreams had come true the first time I laid eyes on the Magic Kingdom castle. I was ready to meet all my favorite characters with my autograph book in hand. I have stayed at three Disney resorts including the Campsites at Fort Wilderness Resort, Disney’s Allstar Music Resort, and Port Orleans Resort Riverside.
My husband and I most recently celebrated our first anniversary with a trip to Walt Disney World in April 2017. While we were there, we participated in many Magical extras setting our trip apart from others we’ve taken. We began our trip with a RunDisney Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon, 13.1 miles of Star Wars fun including movie clips, character interactions, and Star Wars music playing in the background. We absolutely felt strong with the force after that race! We also enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Star Wars Dessert Party and the Galactic Spectacular Fireworks show.
We’ve also experienced a different kind of magic while exploring The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. After reading the Harry Potter series at least 10 times, it was pure excitement racing through Gringotts, eating lunch at the Leaky Cauldron, and having a frozen butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks. We spent the rest of our time at Universal exploring their many other attractions that will delight the cartoon, music, or movie lover in any family! If you are a fellow donut connoisseur, I highly recommend the enormous Big Pink donut at Lard Lad’s!
I have spent hours combing through Walt Disney World and Universal Studios research in order to make sure I can create Magical experiences for my clients. I have made advance dinning reservations, eaten at many quick service and table service restaurants, and discovered many delectable snacks throughout the parks. I have also researched and constructed touring plans for our trips and booked many different FastPasses at each park. Our most recent trip was also during the Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. Our next to do, for 2018, will be to attend Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
I have completed the College of Disney Knowledge that included valuable information on Disney’s other travel experiences. These include Adventures by Disney, Disneyland Resorts and Packages, Disney Cruise Line, and Disney’s Aulani Resort. I would be happy to help your family with those vacations as well.
Enough about me! Tell me about your dreams!! Tell my about your family, about their interests, about your Disney Bucket Lists, and about what you would want to do to make your vacation magical. Do you want to eat at Be Our Guest or have a character experience at Cinderella’s Royal Table? Do you want to meet Mickey and his Friends?

I can help make your Disney dreams come true no matter what your budget is and can help with money and time saving tips and ideas.
No matter what your family’s Disney dreams are, no matter if you want to go to infinity and beyond, float to Paradise Falls in a house with helium balloons, spend time with your prince charming, or discover a whole new world, I want to plan your trip! I am truly passionate to help create your Magical experiences and would love to begin planning your adventure. After all…Adventure is out there!
