My Story:

Erin Karpenko loves Walt Disney World® Resort. In fact, she visited for the very first time before she was even born! A family tradition for as far as she can remember, Erin, along with her two older sisters and extended family, visited Walt Disney World Resort every couple of years. From the holidays to high summer they stayed anywhere from the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground to Moderate and Deluxe Resorts.

As soon as she was old enough to utilize her organizational prowess, Erin began creating itineraries for her family trips. And since they traveled with as many as fifteen family members and friends, she learned at a very young age how to plan fun experiences for large groups and families to share together.

Disney is a whole new experience now that Erin has a 15 year-old son! She has mastered planning everything from infant to teen experiences at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Cruise Line, and Aulani. And because her parents sometimes travel along, she’s learned about what grandparents love to do and great ways for them spend time with the kids while the adults have a date night! Disney isn’t just for kids, you know.

As a travel planner Erin enjoys understanding her client’s expectations and how they like to vacation. With this knowledge she organizes client trips using Extra Magic Hours, park crowd predictions, even knowing which rides to hit first and which restaurants offer the best dining for each family. And if her clients simply want a few pointers before they set off she can do that too! As long as she knows they are prepared, Erin is happy.

Her motto is, “Do what you like, like what you do!” She lives it every day as she makes magic for her clients!
