Christmas at Magic Kingdom!!
Christmas at Magic Kingdom!!

Hi! My name is Karen Holmes and I am passionate about family! I have been married to my wonderful husband for 24 years and we have two amazing boys who fill our lives with laughter and blessings! We love being together and vacations are a great way to spend quality time together as a family while creating unforgettable memories! We love to travel and vacation all over the country, but our favorite vacation destination is Walt Disney World in Florida!!

My family loves the rides and attractions, but we especially love the themed details that go into the whole experience. It’s fun to look for hidden Mickeys and learn interesting facts and history about the parks and the rides! We recently discovered how much we love tours!! One of our favorite activities is taking drawing classes at the Magic of Animation Studio in Hollywood Studios. Being big fans of Toy Story, we LOVE Toy Story Mania, and since we are huge sci-fi fans, we LOVE Star Tours! But we all agree, the most magical experience in all of WDW is the “Wishes” fireworks show at Magic Kingdom. Laying in the grass below the castle next to my boys watching the sky light up in beautifully choreographed display with music swelling around us… ahhh. We could watch it every night for the rest of our lives. It is just so beautiful and magical and the perfect way to end the day!

As an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, I can help plan a customized, unforgettable vacation for you and your family so that you can forget about your worries and enjoy the magic! I would love to share the excitement with you!

In addition to Disney vacations, I have certifications with Universal Orlando Resort, Sandals And Beaches Resorts, and Princess Cruise Line. I am constantly learning more about new destinations and can research and book any destination you desire!

I have experience booking groups as well! So if your office wants to do an incentive trip, or your family is interested in doing a big family reunion, I would love to be of service to you!

 

Let me help make your next vacation your best vacation!


Favorite restaurant: Be Our Guest / California Grill

Beautiful Belize with a Penthouse View

Reviewed By Julie - Allen, TX | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
For our 20th anniversary trip, I had one request - a relaxing vacation in a beautiful beach location. Karen's recommendation landed us on Ambergris Cay in Belize. We were so spoiled with a penthouse ocean view. We felt like a king and queen. We had a leisurely trip experiencing the beach life and yummy food of the locals . Thanks for another great trip, Karen!

Catching up with Mickey

Reviewed By Julie - Allen, TX | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
It had been too long since we'd taken a family trip to Disney World, and I was out of practice. I used to plan my own Disney vacations, but I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the changes in the past 7 years. Karen helped with every detail and planned our vacation to our special requirements for a group of 11. Don't hesitate to let Karen help you. She can help with as much or as little as you like, We chose to trust her expertise, and she planned EVERYTHING for us. It was so stress free and perfect. Hope to see her really soon for our next trip!

Dream Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Derek - Phoenix, Arizona | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
Karen helped me plan my dream honeymoon! My wife and I stayed at the Disneyland Hotel for our honeymoon and enjoyed the park experiences throughout the week. Every single detail was beautifully crafted and I knew I could always have help from Karen before and throughout the trip to make each moment special by adding dining experiences, upgrading our room, or planning special gifts for my wife during our stay. Her passion for creating the most amazing experiences for her clients is evident. She constantly kept me informed throughout the process and I was never stressed knowing she was there watching over my trip. I will always recommend Karen, and I hope to book with her again in the future!

Fantastic Family Trip

Reviewed By Mrs BWC - Kailua, HI | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
Karen is a wonderful agent. She provided such top notch service the first time we worked with her, we immediately contacted her to set up our next family trip.
Karen coordinated our two families, separated by many miles and at least three time zones, for a trip of a lifetime. She answered all of our questions, and responded to our communications in a timely manner. We were so impressed with her services, when we decided to meet up as a family again, we knew we could rely on Karen to make our trip happen. Our two families are excitedly counting down to our next Disneyland adventure in just a few days!
Mahalo, Karen, for all of your hard work and personal care. You truly are a gem!

Karen Holmes responded:

Karen organized our last minute trip to Disneyworld in October. We traveled with my parents and our 3 year old. We stayed a few days at All Star Movies. She didn't miss a beat! Everything was set for us, if we had a question, she had an answer. She is the most awesomest!!!!

Easiest vacation planning ever!

Reviewed By Danielle - Mabank, TX | Traveled to
Karen is AMAZING!!!!!!! She is so knowledgeable of everything Disney. I was so overwhelmed with all the decisions of the trip and she helped me narrow things down and figure out what would be best for our kids. I didn't have time to plan this trip working full time and Karen took all that stress away. She literally planned each day for us, down to our meals. She even sent us a countdown game to do with the kids before we left. When we were planning Karen brought her boys lanyards with their pins they had collected and my kids were hooked. They knew they wanted to do the same, so next thing I know Karen has sent them each a lanyard of their own with two pins to start them out. She goes above and beyond to make your trip so magical! You can not go wrong with Karen. She is the BEST!!!!!!

Magical Trip

Reviewed By Kristi - Dallas,TX | Traveled to
Karen's planning made this the most enjoyable trip to Disney that I have experienced. There are so many details to planning a trip to Disney that having her to guide our choices made Spring Break one that my boys will never forget. Karen planned our days so that we were at the right parks on the right days. She got us into the greatest restaurants with the best characters. Karen even arranged extra adventures that I would never choose, such as the Hoop-De-Doo Review and a Pirate Cruise. They were both so fun we can't wait to go back and do it all again! I would highly recommend having someone as detail oriented as Karen help shape your perfect vacation. She truly made our Spring Break magical!!

We had an awesome experience planning our trip!

Reviewed By Erin - Denver | Traveled to
Karen is absolutely passionate about Disney... It is so important to have someone help plan a trip like this to Disney World because there is so much to see, and it would be really easy to miss things without the help of a professional. She helped us customize our trip to meet the needs of our family. Our kids are a little older, so we might have different priorities than a family with really young kids. We have reservations at restaurants that we wouldn't have even known about without her guidance. We can't wait for our trip in a few weeks! I highly recommend using Karen to plan your family's vacation!

Thanks to Karen, we didn't miss a thing!

Reviewed By Ken - Dallas | Traveled to
I had never been to Disney World before and we were going to be there for a whole week and visit all Four Kingdoms and Downtown Disney. Our fear was that we would spend a whole week there only to come home and be told of all the things we'd missed because we'd never even heard of them! Solution: Karen Holmes! Thanks to Karen, who planned our whole week, we didn't miss a thing! From rides to restaurants to shows to tours to FastPasses to reservations, she led our family through a maze of choices that resulted in full days of non-stop fun and adventure and no regret. Without Karen, we would have missed seeing The Lion King Show at Animal Kingdom, sitting in a session with a real Disney animator and learning how to sketch Disney characters at Hollywood Studios, having dinner in the ballroom at the Beauty and Beast Castle at Magic Kingdom (a must!), and getting people from different nations at Epcot to write in little passport books a phrase in their own language (Karen's idea and it was a big hit !). And one of the highlights of the trip for me was another Karen suggestion: taking the Keys of the Kingdom Tour at Magic Kingdom ( don't leave there without this tour or you'll regret it ). And the best part of dealing with Karen as your guide is this: you get not only her wonderful knowledge of Disney World, but you also get her unbounded enthusiasm and passion! Karen Holmes puts the magic in the most magical place on earth! I highly recommend her!

Honeymoon

Reviewed By Sneed - Houston, TX | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
It was an absolute pleasure planning our honeymoon with Karen. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions and recommendations to help us get the most out of our trip. She kept us on track from the very beginning with important dates, reservations, fast passes, etc. She was very friendly and approachable which made us feel comfortable to ask her any questions or concerns we had. Karen helped us have an amazing honeymoon and we will definitely use her again next time we plan a trip to Disney.
