- New York
I am a military wife and mother of a preschooler and kindergarten student. I work from home in social media community management and I'm also a freelance writer and blogger. Somehow, I've managed to find the time to train and complete my first marathon — the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon (of course!). In addition to running, I love watching professional sports (baseball and football are my favorites), reading and staying up late to watch my favorite classic films over and over again. Maybe that's why Disney's Hollywood Studios is my favorite theme park at Walt Disney World Resort. Although I love Walt Disney World all year long, my favorite time of year to visit is during the holidays. There's nothing more magical than seeing it snow on Main Street, U.S.A., hearing the glorious sounds of the Epcot Candlelight Processional or watching the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!
About My Family
Our family motto is "Bloom Where Planted." As a military family, we move every four years and we make the most of it by exploring all our new home has to offer, whether it's finding our new favorite pizza joint, hiking a new trail, or discovering which park has the best slides. We've lived in New Jersey, Florida, Virginia, and now call Western New York home. We definitely believe there's adventure out there and can't wait to see where we'll end up next!
About My Disney Experience
I have been able to visit the Walt Disney World Resort during every phase of my life so far, and each visit has been truly unique! I first visited Walt Disney World for my fifth birthday and have been back for high school band trips, a special father and daughter "land and sea" trip for my graduation, my honeymoon, business conferences, and to celebrate pregnancies. I even take an annual solo trip to Walt Disney World Resort for a runDisney event; it's my ultimate indulgence! Our children had their first visits at just five and six months old, so we have a lot of experience traveling with infants. I now visit the Disneyland Resort in California at least once a year and have fallen in love with the "Happiest Place on Earth." I've been helping my family and friends (and even complete strangers next to me on a plane) plan their Disney vacations for years. There's nothing better than hearing all of their magical vacation stories when they return home and knowing I had a part in helping make their Disney dreams come true!
