About Mom Approved Travel

Welcome to Mom Approved Travel – a boutique Travel Agency specializing in Family Vacations.

Our Story:

In 2015, Mom Approved Travel was started by Christy Slavik to share her passion for Disney trip planning and assist overwhelmed Moms and Dads plan planning their vacations. Her approach was unique and she developed systems that focused on making trip planning processes with busy Moms and Dads in mind, to ensure Moms would get a vacation too, instead of stressing over all the details.

Since those early days, Mom Approved Travel has added hand-picked Travel Advisors to the Mom Approved Travel team who exude the same passion, expertise and no-nonsense approach to family travel planning Christy does.

Mom Approved Travel started exclusively focusing on Disney Destinations, but has since thoughtfully expanded into planning other family vacation destinations such as: Universal Resorts, most major cruise lines including Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Princess Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines, etc, most All-Inclusive Resorts including Sandals and Beaches Resorts, Excellence Resorts and more so that we could better serve our clients and their growing families!

What We Believe:

At Mom Approved Travel, one of our core beliefs are Moms should get a vacation too.

What this means is, Mom should actually enjoy going on vacation – she should not be stressing or spending her precious time worrying about which kid-friendly activities are in the Bahamas, how best to navigate Walt Disney World, spending hours researching all the packing things, or making sure she doesn’t miss important payment, activity or check-in deadlines. Mom can spend her time and energy elsewhere when she partners with Mom Approved Travel!
