Name: Kristin Vamvakitis also known as KV

Where are you from? Born and raised in Rochester, New York but now living in Waterford, Michigan.

First memory of Disney? Traveling with my family in an RV and staying at Fort Wilderness campsites.   Riding Thunder Mountain and laughing the whole time.

What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? I’ve been going to Disney World since the late 70’s and since been there over 30 times. It melts my heart each and every time I enter through the turnstiles at the Magic Kingdom when the cast member greets you with the expression have a “Magical Day”. The view Of Cinderella’s castle while walking down Main Street is a sight one never forgets. All the memories past and present come rushing in at that time. How can you not get filled with excitement with the adventure that awaits you?  You can escape all your everyday worries in life and return to childhood.  Wear crazy Disney hats and shirts and no worrying what others will say!  You’re free to be a kid again!

Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World!!  Why because I love the memories it gives me and my family! Those are ones that never can be replaced. My home away from home.

Favorite Disney Character and why? Goofy!  Fun loveable and makes me smile from ear to ear.

Favorite Disney Attraction and why? Pirates of the Caribbean because I love an adventure!

Favorite Disney Resort and why?  Port Orleans French Quarter, I love the New Orleans feel  and the quiet  and relaxing feel of the resort.

Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? Wolfgang Puck’s Selection, food and my kids love it!

Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? Yak and Yeti In Animal Kingdom!  Why you ask?  Because it’s super yummy !:)

3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? Tarzan, he was brought into this world with so little fortune and despair but still became a great man and person.  Mulan fought hard and found the courage to pursue her dreams.  Last but not least, Mary Poppins.    Her beauty and elegance displayed was second to none.   She instills values and lessons that all families strive for and achieve.

Favorite Disney snack and why? Mickey Pretzel of course! Oh and add the cheese!:)

Favorite Disney Movie and why?   This is hard I love them all!!   But since I need to pick one I love  ?  Frozen’s~ The bond between sisters can never be broken.  Plus, the songs… I love to sing even if I’m not in tune.

3 Favorite Disney Song and why? FROZEN “Let it Go” Sometimes you just need to let your worries go and move on.  Tarzan’s, “I’ll be in your heart” I will always have my dad with me every time I go to Disney!  It all started with him and my mom taking us as kids.   Brave’s~ Touch the Sky~ Merida has no fear and will go  on adventure and come out learning more then she did prior to it.  She follows her dreams no matter what obstacles stand in her way.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why?   This was hard, I asked my husband, which he responded ” Cinderella” , because she endured so much and maintained her composure and heart felt love for her friends and family.

If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? Tinker Belle! Fly thru the sky during Wishes fireworks!

If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would love to be the Mayor of the day!  Open Magic Kingdom at Rope Drop.  Welcome all the guests for the day and of course take pictures with everyone:)

Best part about being a MickeyTravels Disney Travel Agent? Having a hand in those magical memories that all my clients experience.  Sharing my memories and hearing theirs when they return.   I love the way Disney brings a  smile to my face  and I want all my clients to feel the same way.

Why should I book my vacation with you? I’m honest and knowledgeable.  I eat, sleep and breathe Disney .  It runs through my veins.  I love the feeling of helping people whom never gone and those who have been many times learn something new and share my wealth of knowledge.  I always tell my clients I’m there for them before, during and after any trip they plan with me.  My clients are treated all the same and I plan trips for them as if they were my own.  Giving them the best price and concierge service.
