I am also the mother of a young girl with special needs that include Autism and an Intellectual Disability.

While I love planning vacations for ALL families, I truly love being able to share the Disney Magic with families like my own. We have successfully traveled many, many times, and I would love to help make Disney Destinations a place your family can truly enjoy. There really is nothing quite like some Disney Magic for our special kids!

My travel specialties include Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, and Universal Studios.

The last several years working with PPV have been so much fun, and I am lucky to be able to do something I love every day.

Planning a Disney vacation can be time consuming and overwhelming with all the important details to address, not to mention all the changes during the last few years.

So, sit back and relax, I will take care of all this for you from start to finish at no cost to you!

Having traveled Disney at all ages and all stage of life, I can help you design a trip that is the perfect fit.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that you will consider using my services to help create your own magical memories!

We just got back from a Thanksgiving week Disney World trip totally planned by Kathleen and let me tell you it was -PERFECT. We had a big travel party made up of 3 different families , kids , adults and someone with special needs . Kathleen made the planning absolutely easy, seamless and fun ! I have planned many trips on my own and it’s been time consuming and stressful but I’m a Disney nut and liked planning it on my own so it would be perfect….however I will never go back ! Kathleen will be planning all our future trips to Disney. Thank you so much Kathleen!!!

 Kathleen Patten was an incredible planner for our Disney vacation.  Her attention to detail is unparalleled.  We have a child with significant special needs and she guided us on how to make the most of his vacation.  We got the dining reservations we wanted because of Kathleen’s diligence.

I cannot say enough about Practically Perfect Vacations by Kathleen!! Our family of six got back from Disney today. Kathleen planned our trip to the tiniest detail. We have a child with special needs and our itinerary included advice on rest areas, times to use his disability pass in conjunction with the Genie+, good times to grab a snack etc. Kathleen booked all of our reservations, and was always monitoring our reservation to get us the biggest bang for our buck. We have used travel agents in the past but the service we received from Kathleen was leaps and bounds above anything we had ever experienced. If a Disney trip is in your future you would be a fool not to utilize all of Kathleen’s experience and knowledge. Thank you Kathleen, our family cannot begin to tell you how much we appreciate all you did for us.

Kathleen is amazing!! She planned the perfect vacation for my family and was beyond helpful with any questions/concerns I had. We enjoyed the most wonderful trip to Disney and it was all because of Kathleen!!
