Fun Facts About Me
What is your biggest food weakness?
Chocolate chip cookies!
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
If I could, I would move to Germany ASAP! I loved Munich and you can get to anywhere in Europe via a train or short plane ride. I love the juxtaposition of old world history and the newest technology/architecture. Plus, the people in Germany were the nicest of all other European countries that I have visited.
What is one thing that you wish you would great at (but you’re not…)?
I have always wanted to be able to draw. In another life, I would have loved to be a costume designer- elaborate, beautiful costumes- but alas, I cannot draw. And that really is a requirement in fashion.
What is your favorite TV show of all time - you've seen them all, can watch it over and over again and quote lines from it?
Are you a morning or night person?
100% a night owl
What's your favorite color?
Growing up, what was your dream job?
A costume/fashion designer.
Bungee jump or sky dive?
I have already bungee jumped; so, I would say sky diving because I really want to try it!
Summer or winter?
Winter. You can always bundle up for warmth, but you can’t take off enough to cool down in the South’s miserable summer.
What is your favorite quote from a book, movie or TV show?
“Hey nonny, nonny" from Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare. It started as gibberish in English folklore and was used basically as a filler for poems or in rhythmic talk. However, it became known as no worries or basically their version of whatever.

She now works full-time as a Human Resource Generalist at a construction and maintenance company. She has a daughter and is very involved in the school community.

Kristina traveled to Disney World and Disneyland as a young child with her family. She was able to take her daughter for the first time when she was 2 years old, and Kristina realized her love of planning Disney trips. She is currently planning their family’s first Disney Cruise.

If you had to choose one Disney destination to visit this year, which would it be – Disneyland, Disney World, or a Disney Cruise?
If you could be a character in a Disney movie or TV show, who would you be?
What is your favorite Disney attraction or show?
Tower of Terror
If you could resurrect one retired Walt Disney World attraction, character, show, event, etc., what would it be?
I am actually really sad that It’s a Small World Ride closed recently. That ride was always a staple and created a great sense of nostalgia.
What’s your favorite special event at a Disney park?
I love the International Food and Wine Festival in Epcot. I also like going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party because of the décor and dressing up.
Choose just one thing to do today at Walt Disney World, which would it be -- pool, park or parade?
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!
