My name is Jodi. I grew up in Rhode Island, but now call Massachusetts home. I’m the original Type-A, multitasking mom, who plans things from start to finish and always has more than one ball in the air! I recently gave up my full-time job to find more balance in my life. I now work as a consultant, edit and write for several websites, and am a part-time stay-at-home mom. I have a background in economics and finance and enjoy helping families find ways to stretch their vacation dollars.
About My Family
My husband and I have been married for over eight years and we have two small children – a spirited, princess-loving 7-year old girl and an energetic, Mickey-loving 5-year old boy. Both my husband and I grew up experiencing annual family vacations and continuing that tradition with our own family is important to us. We’ve found that Walt Disney World makes traveling with small children so easy. Our children have enjoyed meeting characters, watching performances and riding attractions.
About My Disney Experience
My family first visited the Magic Kingdom when I was only 5 years old. After that, whether it was by plane, train or car (and we’ve done it all), we visited many times. Now that I have my own family, my husband and I have taken our children annually for the past few years. Our family’s favorite resort has changed over the years, from Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, where my children loved watching the animals right from our hotel room, to Disney's Beach Club Resort , where they love to play in Stormalong Bay. I really look forward to helping parents everywhere plan a vacation within their budget that will truly create lifelong memories.
