Our Story

Lisa and Steve, the owners, both worked for the Walt Disney Company and have worked, lived, and have played all around Orlando.

Pixie Vacations was started several years ago to share Disney Vacation planning tips and savings with everyone and soon after guests wanted to also experience Universal Studios and other Orlando area resorts and attractions.  So Universal Family Vacations was created to help guests wanting to stay at Universal Studios Orlando.

Hi! My name is Kristin Zarchan!
I have been a travel agent for over 14 years. I am a mom to three wonderful children, Breanna, Tyler, and Hayley, and we love traveling to Universal Orlando together. My son, Tyler, has various different abilities that teach us unique ways to approach visits to theme parks, including traveling with earplugs, a weighted lap blanket, fidget toys, and more.
As a special needs mom and specialist, I am uniquely equipped to navigate the parks with my special needs son, ensuring we enjoy our visits without worry. As a year-round Special Olympics volunteer coach, I am adept at overcoming challenges both daily and while traveling. I use these skills to help you plan a smoother transition from home to vacation. I also specialize in guiding special needs guests through the ins and outs of accessibility within the theme parks. I can assist with unique dietary needs, navigating wheelchairs on rides, and more. I hold my Autism Travel certification through the IBCCES, the agency that issues and approves the Individual Accessibility Card (IAC).
I maintain regular contact with Universal chefs to stay informed about food allergy information. Personally, I am allergic to shellfish and gluten, while my family also deals with allergies to milk and bananas.
I also enjoy taking trips with my adult friends, as even moms need a vacation. Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is an exceptional experience, showcasing their storytelling through sights, sounds, and smells. If Halloween isn’t your thing, Mardi Gras in February offers vibrant festivities—I’ve even ridden the Pegasus Float and thrown beads to the crowd. Christmas at Universal is magical, featuring the Macy’s parade and Santa himself. My personal experiences with these holiday events ensure I can create a fabulous vacation for your family and friends.
Photography is one of my passions, and I love capturing the magic of our travels. My Facebook page, www.facebook.com/kristinspixievacations, offers an immersive look at Universal Studios Orlando, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay, Universal Hollywood, and soon, Epic Universe. Each of the Universal Orlando hotels is featured in its own album, showcasing everything from bathroom layouts to spacious bedrooms.
I would love to share my Universal Orlando travel insights and tips with you. Thanks to yearly onsite trainings and family vacations to Universal Orlando, I stay up to date with the latest attractions and happenings in the parks. Ready to embark on your next adventure?

Experience the moments. Share the memories.

I have been an agent with Pixie Vacations for over 10 years.

I am an adopted dad to three amazing boys, DisNerd, MouseChatter (mousechat.net podcast) and lover of all theme and amusement parks.

I am a Disney Vacation Club member, and frequent visitor to the Orlando area. I have been to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and have sailed many times with Disney Cruise Line. In between Disney Vacations – I’m always planning my next adventure. I am an avid artistic photographer, a total “Jeopardy head” with his specialty being Disney, all things Mr. Potato Head, and Disney/Pixar!

Many think Disney is just for kids, but that cannot be further from the truth. With world class dining, shopping and entertainment, there is plenty to do for any member of your family. Another common misconception is that Disney Vacations are very expensive. As a Pixie agent, I am committed to planning a vacation that is both magical and affordable for you and your family! I am excited to assist you in planning your vacation – let’s get started! Where would you like to go?

To Infinity – or Beyond???
