Our Founders

Destinations with Character Travel Services, LLC.” was founded by Tina & Don Korta in 2013. Based on a lifelong Love of Both Travel & Disney, they left the corporate world after almost 30 years working in IT, Group Management, Event Planning and a host of other duties to follow their dreams of providing premium travel services and options for clients.

They share a love of travel and Disney of over 50 years, traveling across the United States, over seas, and cruises to various destinations and have shared that love with their 7 children and 4 grand children. They know and understand all of the complexities that go along with traveling with a large family, in groups, and multi-generational groups and now work to bring Magical Disney Vacations, Exciting Cruises, Relaxing Resort Vacations, and a host of other options to their clients, most of whom have become repeat clients for 3,4, and 5 trips, all within these few short years.


Our Agency & The Difference We Make

Your family’s Magical Vacations and the Memories created are priceless, don’t just trust them to anyone. Why would you use a travel agency that just books your vacation and says, “Thanks for your business, please keep us in mind for future trip”? Use an agency that cares about you and your family the same way they would care for their own family. Your time is also valuable in this hectic age. Why spend all of your time researching, going over travel brochures and web sites, when that’s the job of your travel consultant? Give us your thoughts, ideas, and budget, and we will work with you to create the perfect vacation experience for you and your loved ones, giving you the most value and best experience for your budget!

In less than 4 years Destinations with Character Travel has grown from a small husband and wife team selling Disney Vacation Packages, to a full service travel agency. While we Specialize in Exciting Cruises, Magical Disney Vacation Packages, and Relaxing Resort Vacations, including All-Inclusives, we also maintain one of the largest non-Disney travel portfolios, filled with travel options offered by only those vendors we have grown to trust, in order to offer you a full compliment of leisure and business travel options to suit your every need!

Not only do Don and Tina personally have over 50 years of experience at Disney Parks along with personal, firsthand experience of over 85 % of the Disney Resorts and Dining Experiences, with Destinations with Character Travel, you have a “team” who will be there for you every single day, from the first day of planning until the day you return home!

All of our travel consultants are all Graduates of the College of Disney Knowledge and must take annual update courses to refresh themselves with Disney Destinations. Along with Disney Training, our travel consultants are continuously training on aspects of our non-Disney offerings giving them the competitive edge and knowledge when planning your vacations. Our family of travel consultants have a variety of specialties in addition to their general knowledge. Specialists with the Disneyland Resort, Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotels, Walt Disney World Resort, Military Discounts, Family Groups, Large Groups, are just a small part of the special services Destinations with Character Travel brings to you.

Why Should You Use A Travel Agent?

Disney vacations for many are a once in a life time opportunity and family vacations in general can be costly.

While The Walt Disney World Resort, The Disneyland Resort and other Disney Parks offer a wide variety of packages and lodgings to suit almost every budget, a planning Disney trip can still be an expensive, planning intensive, and stressful experience for many.

Disney requires any travel agent selling Disney vacation packages to go through its training and graduate from the College of Disney Knowledge. Using the years of experience and knowledge of the parks, restaurants and resorts, can help make your vacation less stressful and more Magical. In addition, those services should be and usually are, FREE!

Travel agents planning and selling Disney vacation packages receive their commission directly from The Disney Travel Company. The cost you pay for your vacation package is exactly the same as if you were to plan and pay for it yourself on the Disney websites. The difference is,by using a travel agent, your trip and planning is less stressful and you get all the experience of your travel agent when deciding which resort best suits your family, how to and what to get your Fast Pass reservations for, which dining reservations make the most sense for your family, and which character dining experience will give your children the chance to meet those must see Disney Characters.

Resorts; We can give you first hand knowledge of a majority of the resorts  from Value Resort all the way up to Concierge Level at some of the Deluxe Resorts. We’ve experienced solo trips, romantic couples trips, and family trips as our family size has grown. We are also Disney Vacation Club owners and can explain in detail the differences in renting the Deluxe Villas, from Studios, up to and including the Grand Villas for large families.

Dining; We can help to explain the variety of Disney Dining Plans, which (if any) would be best for you, the variety of great dining experiences available (we have eaten at over 75% of the Walt Disney World Resort Restaurants), what are the Character Dining Experiences and how do they vary, which Character Meal  is best for your family’s needs, even what are the must try snacks in the parks. We also offer free help with making your dining reservations.

Parks; We can help you plan out your trips to the park in as much or as little detail as you like. We can supply you with monthly crowd estimates, park attractions closures, seasonal celebrations, ride height requirements, everything you need to make your family’s trip as Magical as possible. We will even assist you in making your Fast Pass+ reservations if you like to help make sure your family sees its “must see” attractions while there.
