Happy Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Happily Ever Ely - Wichita, KS | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Kristin was amazing! She had so much knowledge from personal experience about the destination we wanted to visit for our honeymoon, it really made narrowing down our choices much easier. We also had a certain budget we wanted to stay at and were BLOWN AWAY with our accommodations! From early planning stages, she went above and beyond with her attentiveness to answering questions, scoured countless resorts that fell within our budget, and was able to give us a very clear idea of what to expect during our travels.
The trip itself was perfect. We upgraded, after visiting with Kristin, to the Club Mobay lounge at the airport, and while we didn't actually have to wait there long, the fact that we were breezed through customs and security was nice - and we were able to enjoy some beverages before getting on the shuttle. The resort was beyond our wildest dreams. The staff at the resort made you feel like family, and the resort itself felt like home. We can't wait to go back.
Thanks Kristi

Universal for Grown Ups

Reviewed By Larilee - Gorham, ME | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
I have worked with Kristen multiple times. I am rather particular and she is always able to find a trip that has all of the elements I've requested. After a great family trip to Universal, my significant other and I wanted to experience the park without children. It was a blast!! We stayed at Sapphire Falls, which was beautiful and the service was amazing. Lots of great meals, Volcano Bay and the parks. Really great trip and well planned by Kristen so no surprises!

Memories for Andrew of his parents.

Reviewed By Georgia Grandmother - Berkeley Lake ,Ga | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Kristen helped a very inexperienced grandmother plan this special, once in a lifetime trip for my son, daughter in law and two year old grandson. We had special needs because our son has stage 4 cancer and his wife is recovering from a bone marrow transplant. Kristen guided us through each step. She took special care to point out rides and changing stations for our two year old grandson. She managed to remove all my anxiety and stress about planning this trip. She reviewed every detail with me giving the confidence I needed to make this trip of a life time a reality. I can never thank her enough for helping me give my kids this opportunity to make memories for my grandchild. This trip was perfect in every way. Bless you Kristen. Pamela

Highly recommend for Disney travel

Reviewed By Lisa - Manchester, NH | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Kristin is great! She is super knowledgeable about all things Disney and has booked several vacations for me. She takes care of anything that needs to be done, including making meal or fastpass reservations, recommending resorts from experience, and arranging the magical express. And she is relentless in her quest to get us the best possible discounts for our resort reservation, which has saved us many dollars over the years. She is pleasant to work with and I highly recommend her for both the first timer or experience Disney travelers.

Wonderful trip with just a little hiccup

Reviewed By Mrs. Jones - Lebanon, IN | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Kristin did a wonderful job with our vacation planning for the universal studios part. The hotel and parks were amazing. The second part of our trip she helped find a resort in Siesta Key. I was hesitant about this place because of the reviews I read online and questioned staying there. I wish I would of had her find another place before we went cause the resort was so awful and disgusting. We stayed one night and then I looked online and booked another resort in the middle of the night cause I wasn’t staying there for 3 more nights. She apologized several times and tried to make it right and get our money back for the night. She wasn’t able to get a refund though. She tried though, and I would use her again to help plan a Orlando vacation. That part of our trip was awesome.

Such a Magical Trip

Kristin did a great job helping me prepare for the trip. This was our second Disney trip with her expertise and all the little tidbits of info here and there make a big difference in the overall experience. Preparing to take 5 kiddos of various ages on a big trip is a lot of work in and of itself. So thankful Kristin took care of most of the DW side! We had a few hiccups on the trip and Kristin tried her best to make sure DW took care of the issues. Everything worked out perfect and we feel so blessed for all the magical memories. Both trips we will never forget....and we are counting the days until we can go back!!
