Karel Swinson

Get to Know Me

Hi! My name is Karel Swinson from Greenville, NC. I’ve been a travel advisor since 2015. My family and I have fallen in love with all things Disney and have come to realize that anything associated with Disney is always top-notch.

I believe family vacations are essential in these busy times and allow us to get together, unplug and have fun! On our first big trip to WDW I rediscovered all the MAGIC Disney offers looking at it through the eyes of my daughter. Since then we’ve made sure to visit as much as possible to experience all that Disney has to offer. We’ve stayed in multiple resorts and experienced as many dining experiences as possible!  I would love to help you plan and book your family’s vacation too. Please contact me and we can get started customizing the right vacation for your family today.

  3. Karel is the best! I love everything about her personality and she literally helped us have the best trip to Disney world that I could have ever experienced!! She knows everything about Disney!!

  4. It was a blessing to have Karel plan our Disney vacation. It was our first “planned” Disney trip and it was awesome. She never hesitated in answering any questions we had during the planning process, and she was right there to answer any questions or help us out while we were there on our trip! She is definitely who we are calling when we plan our next trip, which hopefully will be soon

  5. Karel Joy was amazing! I am not a planner, but knew to have an enjoyable stress free Disney trip we had to play. Karel did everything for me and answered ALL my questions. Even my day of questions. She is the best!

  6. Karel is great. I have been to Disney world twice. We booked the first one ourselves and the second one with Karel. We had so much more fun on the trip that Karel booked for us. Everything was so organized. We went straight from fast pass to dinner reservation to fast pass, it didn’t cost a penny extra.

  7. I was very nervous about planning a disney trip by myself. Thanks to Karel, our vacation was perfectly planned . Every detail was taken care of by Karel. Thank you Karel for all of your help!
