Our Founding

 

Founded on a lifelong Love of Both Travel & Disney, “Destinations with Character Travel Agency” was founded by Tina & Don Korta in 2013 when they left the corporate world after almost 30 years working in IT, Group Management, Event Planning and a host of other duties. They followed their dreams & passions to bring Disney and Travel to all, through their own travel agency, “Destinations with Character Travel Agency”. They now work to bring the Magic of Cruises, Disney, Resorts Destinations Worldwide and more, to their clients, most of whom have become repeat clients for 3,4, and 5 trips, all within these few short years.

They both shared a Love of Disney that dated back to childhood visits in the 1960’s and 1970’s to The Disneyland Resort & The Walt Disney World Resort. They even spent their honeymoon at The Walt Disney World Resort. Their travel experiences have taken them to over 25 states, multiple cruises,  the Grand Canyon, Branson, Silver Dollar City, Clearwater Florida, and dozens of other destinations across the United States. Internationally, their travels have taken them to the Bahamas, Russia, Singapore and Cambodia multiple times.  Don & Tina have 7 children and 4 grandchildren who have also been raised with their Love of Disney and Travel.
