Hello. My name is Karen Kalinowski. I live in Vernon Hills, Illinois with my husband, David, and my two children.
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, Certified Sandals 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 & 2017, I attended an Agent Education Program at Disney World. I toured many different Disney Resorts and also Disney’s Dream Cruise Ship. I have been on the Disney Dream 4 times and the Disney Fantasy twice. I also planned my own family reunion on the Disney Dream with 26 family members. I spent spring break 2018 at Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood. In 2019, I traveled to Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and also toured the brand new Norwegian Encore cruise ship.
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 is The Hard Rock Hotel. My favorite Disney Cruise line ship is the Fantasy.
The biggest question I get asked is why use a travel agent to book my family vacation. My answer is why not. Let me do all the work for you! My travel services are always FREE when booking a vacation package or cruise.
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!
