An independent agent with Travel With The Magic in Salisbury, MA, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Travel Specialist

Hello. My name is Karen Kalinowski. I live in Vernon Hills, Illinois with my husband, David, and my two children.

I have been taking trips to Florida since I was an infant. My mother and 94 year old grandmother live near Cocoa Beach. Every time we travel to Florida, we have to stop at either Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Orlando.

I completed travel school in 1996 and worked as a full time travel agent booking clients all over the world. I joined Travel with the Magic’s team in May 2012. I am a Disney College of Knowledge graduate, Royal Caribbean University of WOW graduate, Legoland Specialist, Atlantis Specialist, SeaWorld Parks Specialist and Marriott Hotels Sales Specialist. I also help manage the agents with Travel with the Magic. In July 2013, I attended an Agent Education Program at Disney World. I toured many different Disney Resorts and also Disney’s Dream Cruise Ship. In May 2014, I traveled to Disney World for the opening of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride. My family took their very first Disney cruise in February 2014 on the Disney Dream. We just returned from our second cruise on Disney's Dream with 26 family members.  

My favorite theme park is the Magic Kingdom. My favorite resort at Disney World is Disney’s Beach Club Resort. My favorite resort at Universal Studios Orlando is The Hard Rock Hotel.

I have a LOVE for helping people book their dream vacations and also the knowledge of locations all over the world. My services are always free. You can find tips and travel information on my Facebook page.
