I live in beautiful Cape Cod, Mass., with my wonderful husband and 5 incredible children. Walt Disney World Resort is my most beloved vacation destination and I'm always dreaming of and planning for our next trip. My family and friends began calling me "The Memory Maker" years ago because I pour my heart and soul into creating perfectly magical memories for our family. Much like Walt Disney himself, I have a special place in my heart for trains and I thoroughly enjoy my job as the Passenger Operations and Marketing Manager for a scenic railroad. I enjoy the beach and summers spent on Cape Cod, the holidays and the New England Patriots. In my free time, I share my Disney passion online by helping others plan their Disney vacations. I was born the same day Magic Kingdom was dedicated, so I like to think that I was born to love Disney!
About My Family
My husband Steve and I are parents of 5 fabulous kids, ranging in age from to grade-school to early-twenties. Our kids, 3 girls and 2 boys, are ages 10, 12, 14, 18 & 22. They are all involved in sports and extra-curricular activities, so our time together is treasured. While the kids vary so much in age, they all share a common desired vacation destination - Walt Disney World! Whether it's a first hug from Pooh, conquering a roller-coaster or celebrating a milestone, Disney has been a part of numerous special moments for our family. In an effort to make unique memories on each Disney Parks vacation, I always plan a new, special experience for our family. From parasailing, to the Wild Africa Trek to experiencing a Disney cruise - there is always something new to discover. We joined Disney Vacation Club to insure a lifetime of Disney memories and our Walt Disney World vacations usually include various members of our extended family. This way, the kids also get to create even more memories with their aunts, uncles and grandparents.
About My Disney Experience
I have a reputation for possessing a wealth of Disney Parks expertise that I love sharing. I'm a former Florida resident and have spent numerous days enjoying Walt Disney World Resort as a teen. Since then, I've helped organize countless magical vacations including Honeymoons and Grand Gatherings involving multiple generations. The large age-span of my children helps with assisting others plan their family vacations for every age group. My family makes sure we include at least one table service meal a day. We find sitting down together after a fun day to share memories and recap experiences is priceless. One of the best things about a Walt Disney World vacation is that no two trips are ever the same. Disney is always adding new things to make it even more exciting and I look forward to discovering what they have in store next!
