Hello travel friend!
I’m delighted you stopped by to learn about me, and I hope to have the opportunity to meet you very soon. My name is Krista Reince (she/her) and I’m a Travel Monster Charmer. I specialize in turning monster mayhem into monSTAR memories as a Family Travel Planning Specialist.
2017 marked the start of my journey helping families with their vacations, and I’ve served 80 families for over 125 travel experiences (as of Dec 2021).
My incredibly supportive family makes it possible! (Shout out of thanks to my husband who wrangles our twins when I’m wearing my travel planning hat.)
Right now, my husband, twins, and I are either lounging at home or off on an adventure. We love watching movies and stage shows, visiting theme parks near and far, and looking for fun experiences we can enjoy together.
If I’m alone in my minivan or you see me wearing headphones, I’m probably listening to a podcast. I sneak in learning moments during these quiet times. Bring on the topics of business, marketing, and travel!
I spend way too much money on DIY craft projects – or rather the supplies for the projects. Raise your hand if you too have a room full of craft items just waiting to be used.
I’m an avid book collector and occasional reader when the stars align. I’m on the hunt for both time and the inclination to curl up with a murder mystery or the next Sophie Kinsella romantic comedy. More likely, you’ll find me re-reading The Night Circus for the dozenth time. (Since I’m always collecting new titles, hit me up with your favorite.)
I love parades, whether I’m in my hometown or visiting a theme park. I want to look in awe at the floats and balloons, toe tap and sing along to the tunes, and wave excitedly at the people and characters passing by. (Do you remember running into the street to get the candy as a kid? Good times!)
Fireworks make me cry. There’s nothing like staring up at sparkle and color bursting alive in the sky. Even better if there’s heart-tugging music playing along. Wishes from Walt Disney World will always be my favorite.
What else might you want to know about me?
I specialize in Universal Orlando Resort, Disney Cruise Line, and Walt Disney World Resort vacations. I can also help with SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, Norwegian Cruise Line itineraries and Loma Homes with several themed homes in Florida.
I stay current with up-to-date training. I am a College of Disney Knowledge Graduate, Universal Orlando Specialist, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Travel Agent Specialist, Certified Orlando Expert, and Norwegian Cruise Line master’s degree level.
Our family has driven and flown to Florida regularly and enjoyed trips at various ages of our twins from toddlers (our easiest trip) through their current age of 6. During our travels, we’ve celebrated birthdays, babymoons, gender reveals, anniversaries, and more. In short, I have a lot of personal experience to share with you!
Whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, with your family, or even coordinating multi-family groups, I’ve got you covered. Planning to celebrate something special? Yep, I can hook you up!
With experience and services customized to YOUR specific needs, I’m here to help you create lasting memories with your loved ones – leading up to, during, and between vacations.
It would be my joy to serve you!
