This is My Story

Hi! I’m Kelly Van Eerden, a Lead Travel Advisor with Living With The Magic Vacations. I currently live in Jenison, Michigan with my husband, daughter, and son.   

We love traveling as a family because it gives us time to spend time together without all the activities that life with older children brings.  Walt Disney World will always have a special place in our hearts as one of our first family vacations, but we also love exploring new destinations!  Some of our favorite places to visit have actually been new to us in the last few years.  We took our first Disney cruise in early 2020 and my kids fell in love with cruising.  We have also visited Universal (both Hollywood and Orlando) and Disneyland recently, and we all found something to enjoy.  We love the thrills that the Universal parks offer as well as the Marvel and Cars Land at Disneyland. 

In 2012, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and multiple food allergies.  Despite the challenges that traveling with food allergies can bring, our vacations have not stopped.  I still continue to travel and look for destinations that are allergy-friendly.  My favorite allergy-friendly destination is Walt Disney World because they do such a great job going above and beyond to serve their guests with allergies, but the options are endless!  

I feel that travel is an important way to connect as a family and recharge for everyday life.  I have planned numerous vacations and love that I can share my passion for exploring new places with my clients as I help them make memories that will last a lifetime.  I look forward to using my personal experiences to help make your dream vacation a reality.

We had a rough start & our flights got cancelled but Kelly helped us get our flights refunded with in 3 days. We stayed at Club Lux Resort & it was perfect, it was clean, had a pool & was with in walking distance to the beach, restaurants & shops. I would definitely recommend Kelly! Thanks Kelly ☀️ 🏝

positive review  I cannot recommend Kelly enough. The hard work and passion she has for her job and clients is incredible. Not only did she help us with changing our reservations last minute, but she helped my fiancé pull off an amazing proposal on the island of Cozumel. I can’t wait for our next vacation!

positive review  Kelly is awesome, she has so many great tips. Will give you multiplie proposals with quick turnaround. Her best attribute for us is that she can help families who have children with disabilities. Unfortunately we live in CA and she ended up not being able to book us but if we didn't live here I'd use her in a heartbeat. I'd definitely recommend Kelly anytime. 🥰

positive review  Kelly has patiently answered all of my questions and has even changed our vacation plans when our trip fell through. She even surprised me when she got me a bigger savings when I wasn't aware of it. Always going above and beyond!! ❤🖤💛🤍
