There’s nothing quite like a vacation to ignite your excitement, recharge your soul, and bring your family closer together. Hi, I’m Krista - a lover of travel experiences. I’m committed to hearing about your vacation dreams and then using my knowledge to create a unique experience for you and your family. I’m excited to partner with you to make magical memories that will last a lifetime!
As Walt Disney so wisely pointed out, “Adults are only kids grown up, anyway,” and nothing can describe me better. I’m a longtime lover of all things Disney and a Universal enthusiast. I wish upon stars, get excited to interact with Goofy, and tear up whenever I arrive at a Disney destination. I love interacting with dinosaurs, want to have a jam session with Bumble Bee, and really wish I was sipping a frozen Butterbeer right now. I’m the person who makes friends in line queues, waves excitedly at characters during the parades, and oohs and ahs at fireworks. Between trips I’m reliving memories, planning the next bucket list experiences, and crafting DIY fan shirts.
So, what experience can I bring to your planning?
Why a visit with a child (or twins!) under age 2 is your easiest trip
Tips for driving 26+ hours with toddlers
How to coordinate multiple-family, large groups
Why you want to schedule a down day into your plans and how to make the most of it
What’s great about rocking a solo traveler visit
Tips for creating magical celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries, babymoons, gender reveals, and more
How to get into the holiday spirit with special party tickets or themed cruises
How to navigate multiple destinations/parks in one visit
I look forward to guiding you to a vacation filled with magic and wonder and to bringing you to the places where dreams come true. As Baymax would say, my mission isn’t complete until YOU are “satisfied with your care.”
I am a College of Disney Knowledge graduate, Universal Parks & Resorts Vacation Specialist, and Certified Orlando Specialist.

We just returned from an amazing trip that Krista planned for us to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and SeaWorld. Krista worked with us to find the best hotel accommodations for our family size and budget (which ended up being Port Orleans Riverside) an amazing choice, I would definitely stay there again! She also booked our tickets for all of the parks and offered step by step details of rides, shows, etc. The time, detail and care that she spends with each individual trip really shows that Krista wants every family to have the best experience. ~Tricia D.
