Fun Facts About Me
What movie or book makes you cry every time, no matter how many times you watch/read it?
The Notebook, I love this movie and cry every time.
Growing up, what was your dream job?
Anything to do with travel, it's my passion. I really didn't think I would ever get the chance to work in the travel industry and when I married my husband we were young and I told him my dream was for us to travel as often as possible. He agreed and we have never looked back. I am so excited to have the chance to live a dream.
Bungee jump or sky dive?
Sky Dive, which my friends will think is crazy because I used to suffer from a fear of flying :) It's on my bucket list when my kids are grown I plan to try it.
Are you the oldest, youngest, middle or only child?
The oldest, and you can tell. I have always been a planner and wanted to be in charge.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
I would live in Wine Country in California and have a herb farm and a vineyard. I would love to have a small farm.
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Move, my husbands job has moved us three times in the last five years. While it has been the hardest thing I have ever done it's probably been one of the best things I have ever done. I have made lifelong friends every where we have lived. Moving has been very faith building and character building for me. I have learned a lot from moving.
List 3 of your best and 3 of your worst personality traits.
My best are loving, kind, and loyal. My three worst are impatient, nosy, and I laugh when I get nervous. I hate that I laugh when I get nervous, its not always easy to explain.
Are you a morning or night person?
I am both, which is crazy. I like to get up early and take a power nap mid day and then stay up late. I blame it on teaching preschool for almost 10 years. I never took a nap while the kids were sleeping but my body got on the same schedule as my school kids.
Summer or winter?
Can I say Fall? I love everything about Fall the leaves change and the weather in Texas is great. Just thinking about Fall makes me happy.
Where were you born?
Hope, AR and if you've heard of Hope there are two reasons: one, the Hope Watermelon festival or two, Bill Clinton's speech where he talked about a place called Hope.
What is your favorite book?
The Bible and The Notebook
Kristi Peek, born and raised in Arkansas. Married to her high school sweetheart, Charlie and they have two wonderful kids, a 15 year old son and 13 year old daughter. They now reside in Texas and love the Texas Rangers. Their family tries to make it to Rangers Ballpark as much as possible. Kristi also likes to read books, garden, run, bike and do yoga. Kristi loves book clubs and talking about what great books she has read lately. Kristi also likes to volunteer often.
Kristi's favorite saying is "Life is a book and those who do not travel only turn one page." Kristi likes to say she has spent as much of her life traveling as possible. I spent a lot of my childhood dreaming about getting to go to Walt Disney World and at the age of 24 that dream came true. Disney World did not disappoint either and her family tries to make at least one visit a year. You can find Kristi's family shutting Hollywood Studios down riding Rock and Roll Roller Coaster. The whole family also loves to eat at Chef Mickey's and tries to dine there every trip.
Before becoming a Dream Vacation Planner Kristi was a preschool teacher and a stay at home Mom. Kristi always dreamed of working in the travel industry and would love to help you plan your next dream vacation to Walt Disney World.

Dole Whips! We normally go to Magic Kingdom first on our trips and I head right for Adventure Land and grab a Dole Whip.
Who is your favorite Disney character?
Mickey Mouse, because it all started with a Mouse.
If you could have a job at Disney World what would you do?
To work as a Safari guide at Animal Kingdom Park.
How old were you were you first visited Walt Disney World?
I was 24 years old and it was a dream come true for me. Growing up my cousins went to Disney World a lot and as little kid I dreamed of the day I would get to go. Disney World lived up to dream and I have returned many times in the years that have followed.
If you had to choose one Disney destination to visit this year, which would it be – Disneyland, Disney World, or a Disney Cruise?

The Disney Wonder, I have great memories of trips with my family on this ship.

FAQs about my services:
Why are your services free?
Pixie and Pirate Destinations, nor myself, ever charges our clients anything for our services. I am paid commission from the companies I book vacations with - Disney, Universal Vacations, Norwegian Cruise Lines, etc. You will pay the same amount of money booking a trip with me as you would if you booked it directly through the company itself. And sometimes I am able to find a better deal because of the special promotions that are available. A reservation transfer may be an option if you have already booked a vacation.
As a Dream Vacation Planner (DVP) I work strictly off of commission and I hope that if you decide to book a vacation you will choose to book your vacation with me. Please keep this in mind if I do a lot of research on a vacation for you. Regardless of the number of hours I put toward helping a client plan, I am not paid hourly,
Why should I book my vacation with you and Pixie and Pirate Destinations?
I have an honest passion for Disney and the Disney destinations. And my Disney knowledge is up to date since this is my career. I have guidelines to follow that are put in place by Pixie and Pirate Destinations. I have been trained to provide you with the best customer service in the industry. And I am willing to work "with" you in planning your vacation.
At Pixie and Pirate Destinations our motto is "go above and beyond for each client's individual needs." As a valued client, I will be here every step of the way to help you with your concerns or questions. You will have an email address and phone number where you can reach me when you need to. Once your vacation is booked I will continue to help with dining reservations, a personalized daily itinerary, an updated personal web page where you can track your reservation and more. I am here to see you through to the end of your vacation to make sure you have a magical time.
What is the first step?
The first step in the vacation planning process is to request a quote for your desired Disney destination. When you request a quote you have the option of choosing me as you DVP - so please be sure to click on my name or add it into the comments. Once I have your quote request I will listen to your needs and expectations, and guide you through the best options for your family.
How do I pay for my vacation?
To process deposits and payments for your vacation I will need your address, phone number and credit card information. I can either schedule a phone call for you to give this information over the phone, or you can use our
secure website to submit for a payment.
Pixie and Pirate Destinations, nor myself, will EVER personally make a charge to your credit card. You will see a charge from the Walt Disney Travel Company (or another travel vendor such as Universal Travel, Norwegian Cruise Lines, etc.). I use your card information to process your deposit or payment directly through the travel vendor (Disney, etc.). And your CC information will always be kept private. If you ever see a charge that you think is fraudulent contact your credit card company immediately.
What will you do for me that I cannot do for myself?
Of course you can book a Disney vacation on your own - that's easy! But when you book a Disney vacation with me you have my knowledge and experience to tap into at your disposal. You will be working with someone who "knows" Disney and understands how Disney travel can change minute to minute. Because of this you can be assured that I will be able to guide you in the right direction at all times. If I do not know the answer immediately, I WILL find it out. In addition, you can count on the following "extras" from me:
All of the above services are FREE to my clients that book a Disney reservation with Pixie and Pirate Destinations. Some of my clients prefer to take advantage of ALL of these services. While others only need me to do one or two. Your vacation planning is important to me, but I never want to step on your toes - you are always in control!
