I grew up on the South Eastern Coast, just 5 hours from Orlando, so Walt Disney World visits were commonplace for milestones, holidays, special events, and "just because!" I now live in Northern California and call Disneyland my second home, visiting every chance I get. Even though living in California affords me the luxury of visiting Disneyland quite frequently, my family still makes the cross-country trek to Walt Disney World several times a year, which makes me somewhat of a coast-to-coast Disney expert! I believe Disneyland is the ultimate vacation destination and when road-trip time rolls around, it's a no-brainer...I'm going to Disneyland! Over the past decade, I have worn many "ears." After spending 5 years in the fashion industry, I switched gears to work side by side with my husband in our restaurant and have most recently taken my DREAM job as a stay at home mommy...which, by the way gives me plenty of time to help YOU plan your next Disneyland vacation.
About My Family
About My Family: Disney is truly responsible for writing my fairy tale. My husband and I met at Walt Disney World in 2000 and are living happily ever after as parents to a beautiful princess. We believe Disney is in our genes and we're convinced we've passed this magical DNA on to our daughter! We are jet-setters and LOVE to travel, especially to Walt Disney World and Disneyland and like to joke that our Disney bags are always packed and ready for the next adventure! Because we visit Disney Parks so frequently, we became the proud holders of Disney Premier Passports which gives us annual admission to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. My husband and I love visiting the parks at Disneyland, but we also love to bask in the multitude of luxurious amenities including Deluxe Resorts, Signature Dining, boutique shopping, and renowned spas. Self-proclaimed "Disney foodies" we have eaten at nearly every Signature restaurant from Orlando to Anaheim!
About My Disney Experience
About My Disney Experience: I have been to Disney under many unique circumstances and on almost every imaginable budget. When it comes to experiencing all Disney has to offer, there's not much my family hasn't done. We have visited the resorts, just the 3 of us, and with extended family. We have partied the day away for children's birthdays, and we have had romantic anniversary dinners at Napa Rose. We have visited in observance of strict planning itineraries, but also on spur of the moment with no plan at all! Throughout all of these magical journeys, I have taken notes every step of the way! I believe personal experiences play a huge role in successful Disneyland trip planning and I'm ready to put my knowledge to work for YOU! Once you experience Disneyland the way I have, you'll be a believer, and you'll keep coming back!
