Certified Sandals/Beaches Resort Specialist
Hi! My name is Karen, and I live in Baltimore, Maryland with my husband, son & twin daughters. Outside of my family, one of the things I'm the most passionate about is travel and I've been fortunate enough to vacation to many different places over the years, including the Bahamas, Italy, Mexico and nearly every state in the U.S. But even with all those different experiences, my favorite travel destination remains Walt Disney World, so I'm very excited to be a College of Disney Knowledge graduate, and part of the Kingdom Konsultant Travel team.
I enjoy helping people plan Disney vacations so that they too can experience a little bit of the magic that has inspired me since I was a young girl. My parents first took me to Disney World when I was just 8 years old, and I have traveled back countless times since then as a child, a teenager, a young adult and most recently, as a mom. During each of these trips, I've stayed at a variety of Disney hotels, from the Pop Century to the Polynesian (my favorite!), and I've dined at many of the restaurants throughout the parks and resorts. Each of these experiences has provided me with different perspectives that have helped shape my overall Disney knowledge and expertise. Whenever possible, I try to apply those different perspectives when I help clients plan their vacations so that their experience is tailored to their unique interests and circumstances. I truly love what I do, and I look forward to helping you plan your next vacation, whether it's Disney, or beyond!
Testimonials about Karen
Best Planner Ever! - Jennifer Walter
"We contacted Karen early, and gave her all the info and needs of our family. She quickly got us several hotel options, gave us all the advice needed on meals and rides, and all that good stuff. However, it wasn't until she was able to get all of our Fast Passes and dinners that we realized how amazing and dedicated she is. My parents also decided to come to Disney less than a week before our trip, and Karen not only got them into our hotel, next to us, but kept working until she got meal reservations and Fast Passes that worked with ours. She was calling restaurants while we were in Disney to make it all work out. She answered every question, text, and issue we had and was so thoughtful and professional through it all. I would never plan another vacation without her, and I have recommended her to all of our friends. Karen is simply wonderful."
She was AWESOME! - Penny Walters
"Very responsive, super helpful and knowledgeable. I can't wait to book another trip with Karen!"
First trip like a pro! — Erika Conn
"We were blown away with the amount of knowledge and professionalism provided by our TA, Karen. We were planning our first trip to Disney (2 grandparents, 2 parents, a 6 year old and a 2 year old) and were overwhelmed with options. I had a million questions and ideas. I had potentially three different places to stay with three different times of the year. Karen priced everything out without hesitation and we were able to figure something out to book our dream vacation. Karen took the time to get to know our family dynamic and desires of our vacation and assisted in planning an ideal vacation for us. She was able to book dining plans that fit our touring plans at the most sought-out restaurants and reserve Fast Passes at ideal times. She created daily itineraries so that we could maximize our times without feeling rushed. Her level of communication, friendliness, knowledge, and effort made Karen an absolute pleasure. I have already highly recommended her to numerous friends!"
She was the perfect planner for our Vegas vacation! - Tracey Pomponio
"I cannot thank Karen Cirrincione enough for all her help in planning our Vegas vacation in November. She is courteous, professional and simply one of the nicest people I know. She listened to my needs and preferences related to our family vacation and delivered on every front. We took our twins to Las Vegas to celebrate their 21st birthday. Something we have been discussing since they were 7 years old. Can I just say, in one word, it was EPIC! Everything Karen planned for us worked out just as expected. I loved her recommendations and appreciated all the time she put into planning this trip. She solved a major issue for me, as she took care of research and planning when I did not have the extra time to spend doing this. My mother decided to join us on the trip and Karen coordinated with her directly to facilitate this process. She handled everything for me with ease and I cannot thank her enough. This was a memory that will never be forgotten and I could not have done it without her. I will contact her for all my future trips. She is the best at what she does and I recommend her every chance I get!"
Karen made our dreams a reality! - Kristin Chottiner
"Karen Cirrincione was absolutely awesome, leaving no detail unnoticed. We had such an amazing trip to Disney, staying at the Yacht Club. She was able to book some amazing character meals, secure all of the desired fast passes, and point out things to do and see that we would have never known. If you ever need a vacation planner, you can feel confident you made the right choice with Karen! THANK YOU!"
Karen made our trip a dream come true! -Jennifer Lamont
"Karen was AMAZING!!! She made our Disney adventure simply a dream come true! She listened to all our "wants and needs" and orchestrated the most well, thought-out trip for me and my family. She booked the perfect character meals and meet & greets and new all the best attractions to add to our fast passes. And, when our plane was a little late arriving in Florida, she reworked our fast pass (within minutes) for our arrival day to ensure we wouldn't miss a thing! Karen was fabulous to work with and I will certainly be calling her again to book my next adventure! I highly recommend having Karen help plan your next vacation!"

Helpful and Knowledgable - Tracey Hamelin
"Karen was so helpful in planning our Disney trip. She helped us get a great deal and she was very knowledgeable about all the different resorts. We have special medical and dietary needs and she was very helpful in figuring out where to eat too. She had great knowledge of the parks and rides and was able to help us figure out how to best utilize our fast passes, especially with children of various ages and interests in our party. She was always very responsive to all of our questions! It was a very positive experience and we highly recommend her!"
