    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My name is Kaitlyn Harper and I am twenty-three years of age. I absolutely love Disney World as evidenced by the more than fifty trips I have taken there, starting when I was seventeen months of age. My mother even took me to Disneyland to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2005. It would give me great pleasure to be able to help guests plan their trips so as to get the most they can out of their adventure. I have great information about Disney, and I would love to share it with others. I am already planning a trip for my daughter in a few months, who was just born in January, 2018!

  • Karen Buckindail

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I am a life-long Disney enthusiast with a passion for travel. My love for Disney started as a young child, and continues to this day. The parks, characters, movies and music bring a true happiness that can only be inspired by Disney. When I enter one of the parks, I feel a bit like Peter Pan because I never want to grow up. I spend a lot of time traveling to new places, be it a weekend getaway or a week-long trip with my family. For me, planning the trip is just as fun as experiencing it. I love to find new places to eat, fun things to do and even try to work in hidden educational moments for our four children. Have you been to the Hall of Presidents or watched the Muppets take you through the ‘Great Moments in History?’ It’s amazing what you can learn. I hope you’ll let me help you enjoy your next vacation ‘Hakuna Matata’ style, with no worries, just memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Kari Hadley

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    I just retired from 20 years of Active Duty Army Service and am so excited to start a new venture and help others plan wonderful Disney and other vacations. I was not fortunate to visit Disney as a child and my first trip was to Disneyland in 1995 as a 19 year old. Once I got married and had kids trips to Disney became a regular vacation location. Our first family trip was in March 2006 with a 3 1/2 year old and 6 month old and we had a blast. We went back in November 2009 (kids were 7 and 4); December 2011 (we now had three kids, 9, 6, and again 6 months) and this time we took my parents on their first ever Disney trip to celebrate 45 years of marriage, they loved it; and November 2013 (kids 11, 8, 2) . In June 2015, we took our first Disney Cruise to the Bahamas with friends 4 adults and 6 kids 12, 12, 12, 9, 4, and 9 months. In January 2016, I ran my first Disney marathon and half marathon (we did not due park days this trip) and 4 months later we returned to Disney world in May 2016 with my parents (they really loved these vacations) and celebrated our third son’s 5th birthday (kids 13, 10, 5, and 2.5). In June we took another cruise, this time with my parents, to Alaska to celebrate 50 years of marriage (kids 14, 11, 6, and 2.5). In January of 2018 ,I ran another marathon and we traveled as a huge group of 4 families with 5 adults and 10 kids ages 17, 15, 15, 15, 15, 14, 12, 8, 6, and 3, and this time we had our newly adopted daughter with Down Syndrome. As you can see I absolutely love Disney and we try to go often. We have also started incorporating the Disney Cruises which are a blast and so different from the park experience. I would love to help you plan your next Disney or other vacation. Please use my experience and knowledge to help you create a memorable Disney experience whether it is at on of the parks or on a cruise. I am also happy to help with other vacations. As my promise to you if I can’t answer your question I will find someone who can. Let me take some of the stress of planning off your shoulders so you can just enjoy those awesome family moments.

  • Kate Haller

    Personal Vacation Advisor - Team Leader

    Kate joined our team in 2015, eager to pursue her dream of helping others create magical memories. Travel and exploration have always been her passion, especially when it comes to Disney. Kate’s most precious memories from childhood are those of her family vacations, and now she enjoys adding to those memories with her husband and twin boys. Kate has been visiting Walt Disney World since she was a child, and got her husband hooked while on their Disneymoon in 2008. They have since returned every year, bringing their boys and occasionally their extended family. Magic Kingdom is the one place her family cannot get enough of, and Kate loves dancing with her boys as the snow falls on Main Street during the holiday season.

    Kate has a particular love for enjoying the Walt Disney World Resorts and is well on her way to experiencing them all. She cannot get enough of the pool parties, roasting marshmallows on the beach or the relaxing water transportation, especially the view from the night time boat ride to Magic Kingdom. She has visited during all the different times of year and loves discovering new things each time.

  • Kathleen Teixeira

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My love and passion for Disney began in 2004 when I took my oldest son to Disney for the first time. He was ten years old. From the moment I got there, I knew that Disney was the vacation for our family. My son is now 23, and he and his fiancé and son are also Disney fanatics! My 16-year-old is as well, with his preference being for the cruises! The cruises happen to be my favorite as well! The perfect vacation to me is a land/sea Disney vacation.

    People ask me, why Disney? My answer is, because no matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, or what your income is, Disney cast members treat you like royalty. This treatment never wavers. As a single mom with, at times, all of its not-so-glorious issues, it is really nice to get a Disney vacation in to really refresh both my heart and soul. I love Disney, my family loves Disney, and I will always do my best to strive for my clients to have the same magical feelings while on vacation. I want others to see and feel the magic of Disney they way my family and I do.

When I am not making magical vacations a reality for my customers, I enjoy spending time with my family in the Disney parks, going on family adventures, going on cruises, playing with my dogs, and caring for my tiny foster kittens.

I take extreme pride in my customer service skills and will always put your wants and needs first. Making your vacation wishes come true is my job!

    Growing up my family took a vacation to Florida every year, and this allowed me to become very familiar with the Disney World area. I was also lucky enough to learn a love of travel at a young age and have been able to go on many cruises and trips to different countries. It was these childhood experiences that taught me the amazing family bonding that happens on vacations and how the memories made last a lifetime. I am now able to take my own children on vacations and I can tell you that the look on your child’s face when they see their favorite characters is absolutely priceless. I will never forget the magic and wonder in my boys eyes on their first trip to Disney World.

  • Kaylee McAtee

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    There’s nothing more precious than memories with family and friends. Some of my fondest memories stem from my passion for Disney, from childhood trips to my current adventures with my husband and twin boys. My husband and I travel a lot due to his career in the Air Force so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when we got stationed in Florida. During this time, we visited the mouse frequently throughout the year for birthdays, quick weekend trips or full on week vacations. Let me navigate your holiday, so you can truly enjoy your time in the four most iconic parks in the world.
    Another great part of being stationed in Florida was having Universal Studios right next door to the Disney Parks. Universal was perfect for me to indulge in my not so secret obsession of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
    Ever since we moved abroad, I wanted to help others like myself make the most of their magical adventures. I would more than love to ensure you and your family receive the upmost care and attention to make your vacation magical and memorable!

    Hi! My name is Kelly Hilary. Disney has always been a huge part of my life. The first time I experienced Walt Disney World was when I was four years old. I can still remember the excitement of walking under the Main Street train station and then seeing Cinderella’s Castle for the first time! To this day I still get that magical feeling.

    My love for Disney has grown over the years. With my husband and two children we vacation as often as we can to Walt Disney World. I can say this is our absolute favorite vacation spot without a doubt. Where else could you visit different countries around the world, drop thirteen feet in an elevator, or see storm troopers and princesses all in one day?!

    By staying at the many resorts, finding exciting new venues for my children, and eating at the many delicious restaurants, I have gained a lot of knowledge over the years.

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    Hi, my name is Kristina! I’m a Maine native currently residing in Moab, Utah where my husband is employed by the National Park Service at Arches National Park. We are also brand new parents to a beautiful and very active baby boy. We have visited all but four states and are hoping to complete that list within a year or two.

    Travel is the air that I breathe daily! From exploring in the heart of Downtown Boston to backpacking in the most remote of Wilderness areas, I truly am at ease with all types of adventures. I have traveled all over the United States and into some of Canada; as a solo traveler, with my husband of seventeen years, and now as a new mom. I am an annual passholder to several theme park companies across the country and travel to them often. My husband is a former Cast Member at Walt Disney World. During his time of employment, I utilized wandering the entire Walt Disney World property as a method of weight loss. I’m often one to fill in family and friends of hidden gems at resorts not so well known.

    Food, is also a huge passion for me. I have worked as a Prep Cook in the past and am an excellent home cook. Dining out is one of my biggest hobbies. There is nothing that I will not try at least once. I hold a pretty large resume for Disney Dining, as well as other theme parks; that I have dined at more than once.

    I am also a blogger and vlogger, that is busy at work brushing up my YouTube Channel to provide the best resources for viewing to better assist you in planning your travel.

    I’m a great listener that strives to make your needs best met, to provide the best travel experience possible.

    Personal Vacation Advisor - Team Leader

    Kristy’s love of Disney started as an almost 2 year old when she went through the Small World ride and was absolutely smitten with all the ‘babies’ on the ride. Fast forward many years (and trips) later and she got to experience almost the exact memory with her 2 year old daughter. Some of Kristy’s biggest milestones in life thus far have been experienced with the magic of Walt Disney World, she and her husband got engaged and honeymooned there, and have dubbed Disney their, “Happy Place”. As soon as they leave they start planning their next trip.

    Kristy is excited to help families start planning their memories. When you enter Disney World you truly are stepping away from reality and experiencing something that is hard to even put words to. It’s an unforgettable adventure that adults and children cherish and remember in the years to come.

    Although Disney is my first passion, I also can help plan vacations to Sandals/Beaches, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and Universal. I love to travel and it’s a great joy to help others plan their vacations and live vicariously through their experiences. Each trip is unique and special and deserves it’s own set of unique plans!

    Areas of Focus: Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Family trips, Honeymoons, Dining Recommendations, Club Level with Concierge, Adult Only Travel, and Planning with Children and Infants

  • Krystal Sellers

    Personal Vacation Advisor

    My name is Krystal Sellers, and I live in Southeast Louisiana. I am married and have three beautiful children (two princesses and one prince).
    My first trip to Disney World was in 1985 when I was two years old. Since then I’ve returned almost 25 times! My love of Disney and travel came from my parents who wanted to make sure we got to experience the country together. We drove to every location from California to North Carolina to Montana. We made so many wonderful memories! Now I get to make the same memories with my children.
    I have so many wonderful Disney memories, but one of my favorites is when my oldest daughter discovered her love of the characters. She was two years old, and it was our first day in Magic Kingdom. We took her to see Minnie and Daisy in Storybook Circus. I can still see that smile on her face, and the way she would wring her hands with excitement. When I walked out of there I was blubbering like a baby. The way she reacted made me want to become a Disney Vacation Planner. I made a goal right then that I would somehow become one and help other people make their magical dreams come true!!

    When I went to Disney World for the first time it changed my life. Growing up on the West Coast I had never really thought about Disney World. It just seemed too far and too complicated. My mother suggested it might be time to venture over to Disney World for my big 11/11/11 Birthday Celebration. I researched and planned everything myself. I even rented movies about The Walt Disney World Resort, so I could know what to expect. I dedicated myself to my task and loved every minute of it!

    The Disney World all-encompassing immersive experience of magic and happiness captured my mind and heart from the moment I boarded the Magic Express at the Orlando Airport. We had a perfect 10-day trip, and I don’t think I would change one thing if I could do it over again!

    Since then, I married a wonderful man who has the same love of Disney as I do. We even honeymooned at The Aulani in Hawaii! We travel to Disney World several times every year. He is in a wheelchair, so we get to experience the magic from a unique perspective. Learning how to navigate the parks and resorts on wheels has been an eye-opening exercise. I love to help others with similar needs.

    I love it when people call me for advice on their vacations! It brings me such joy to know that I can help them plan their magical experience just like the one I had on my very first trip, and every single one after! Let me be your gateway to Disney’s Magic and sprinkle a little pixie dust into your life!
