Hi there! My name is Karen and I am a mom who loves to travel with her kids and help others see the joy of vacationing as a family. I am originally from Rockford, Illinois and currently living in Chandler, Arizona. I am excited to share my passion of travel with you! As anyone in my life will tell you, I am crazy for Disney. I love how a Disney vacation, whether it be at a park, on a cruise, in Hawaii, or somewhere around the world through the Adventure by Disney program, brings a family together to create unforgettable memories.
As a Disney College of Knowledge graduate, I am dedicated to keeping up on all the latest happenings with Disney and can customize any Disney destination to fit your family’s needs and budget. I understand the sheer amount of offerings Disney has can be overwhelming. Let me do the work of planning a vacation that is tailored to you!
I love helping people plan these vacations because I know how important they can be to maintaining a balanced life. I have first-hand experience traveling with my family (husband, son and daughter) around the world. In the last couple of years I’ve been to Disney World multiple times, Disneyland, Aulani (Disney’s resort in Hawaii), Alaska, Canada, Iceland, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Poland, and China (including Shanghai Disney!).
I’ve also taken my children to places across the U.S. such as Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Seattle, San Diego and more. My husband and I have been to baseball games at all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums across the U.S. and Canada. We’ve been on major cruise lines (or have currently booked upcoming soon!) including: Disney, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, and Norwegian. Because of my passion for travel, I’ve surrounded myself with people who also love to travel. Chances are, if you want to go somewhere, I have been there or know someone who has, so I can get the best inside tips and tricks from those who have experienced it firsthand.
Whether you are looking to have a couple’s three-night getaway to Universal Studios, a family vacation to Disney World, or a three-generation cruise throughout Europe, I can help! I am a Master of Adventure from Royal Caribbean, Universal Orlando Specialist, graduate from Disney’s College of Knowledge, and continue to earn more recognition. My planning services are completely free when you book your vacation with me! Send me an email at Karen.Rubel@MarvelousMouseTravels.com so we can get started planning your next vacation together!
