My name is Kristen and I am the owner of Closer to the Magic Vacations! I have loved Walt Disney World since I was a small child on my first trip with my grandparents! My love for the Disney parks and brand grew as I got older and watched my cousins and now my children experience Disney magic!
I personally have planned over 500 family trips to the Walt Disney World Resort and can help make all your family's vacation dreams come true! I offer customized touring plans, concierge level service and an experience you won't forget! I look forward to bringing you closer to the magic of Disney!
It all began when my parents took me to Walt Disney World to celebrate my 5th birthday. I can still remember sitting in the beautiful Contemporary Hotel restaurant and a group of handsome waiters presented me with my very own Mickey Mouse cake and sang Happy Birthday. They made such a big deal of everything. It was truly magical! Since then, I’ve been hooked on Disney! Over the years, I’ve been back to see Mickey and Minnie many times and each time I still feel the same excitement I did when I was five years old.
After having a rewarding career that including being a Press Secretary for a Congressman, managing grassroots operations for a large trade association, and owning my own business, I decided that I wanted to do something that I truly LOVED! Years ago, when I was planning our first Walt Disney World trip for our children, I enjoyed every aspect of the planning process and loved learning everything about WDW…and now I can do that for your family!
Walt Disney World truly is a magical place, but when you are planning your first trip (or even your 10th trip), it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all of the amazing options, resorts and restaurants. Things are always changing at WDW. That’s where I come in! Through my personal experiences and my extensive training from the “College of Disney Knowledge,” I can determine which hotel is right for your budget and vacation style, which restaurants your kids will love and organize any tours or extras. I offer itinerary planning, dining reservations, tee times, spa appointments and Special Event Tickets like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Let me do the legwork for you!
Also, did you know that there is more to Disney travel than going to Walt Disney World in Orlando? Disney offers a vast array of vacations options such as Disney cruises, a spectacularly themed resort in Hawaii and even guided tours around the world! All Disney vacations focus on fun and bringing families together. I would love to tell you more about each of these exciting travel ideas.

Hi, I’m Laurie! I am so excited to help you plan your vacation to your Disney destination!
My love for Disney parks began when I was 4 years old with our first family trip to visit Mickey. Even though we did not visit again until I was 16 years old, that love stayed with me. At the age of 16, I was lucky enough to enjoy the honor of parading down Main Street as part of the visiting Mardi Gras Krewe. The feeling you get standing on one of those floats and seeing the castle is not one I can easily describe. At that point I was officially a Disney Nut! We continued to visit Disney every few years until I met my husband.
My husband and I married in 2001 and have made several visits of our own since then. I was lucky enough to introduce him to Disney and he loves it as much as I do. We have since made yearly visits with our 3 children, most recently this past December.
To date, I have made 13 trips (and still counting!) to the Walt Disney World Resort. I have stayed at and visited several of the Walt Disney World resorts and dined at a multitude of their restaurants. I have traveled with and without children (just my husband and I), grandparents, as well as in a large group. I have helped several of my friends and my family members plan their own magical experiences to Walt Disney World.
As your agent, I will help you plan your Disney vacation for any budget from start to finish, by planning your vacation package, dining, special events and itinerary. I am here to make your Disney vacation a dream come true for you and your family. I can’t wait to help you create your own family memories to cherish!
