About Me

I am a Disney enthusiast and I love to share my Disney knowledge with others. My love of Disney began early on in my childhood, and I still feel every bit as enthralled by the magic of it all as an adult. I work from home which allows me to be a stay-at-home Mom. I am pursuing a degree in Geology and Meteorology and enjoy astronomy and star gazing as a hobby with my family. I love finding ways to preserve the Disney magic at home in between our Walt Disney World visits, including collecting decorative Disney-themed pieces for our home.

About My Family

My family consists of my husband and two wonderful young boys. I would not be exaggerating if I said we are all Disney enthusiasts! My most magical Walt Disney World memory was during my oldest son's first visit. We assumed he would be excited to see the characters and shows; however, his attention was fixed on the Mickey Mouse shaped ice cream. As a family, we realized from the smile on his face, that the magic is just as much in the little things.

About My Disney Experience

I have been frequenting Walt Disney World since I was a toddler and have built wonderful memories throughout the different stages of my life. I have memories from my little sisters' first visit, and sharing my love of Walt Disney World with them. As a teenager, I traded in a traditional quinceanera for a birthday bash at the parks with the Mouse himself and stayed at Fort Wilderness Campground - 11 of my family members and friends and myself. Since, I've enjoyed the parks with my husband and with extended family, taking in the moments and magic. Now, I bring my sons and my oldest shares his favorites of Walt Disney World with his little brother. Family and friends know me to be Disney-savvy and it is common for me to receive emails and phone calls asking for help and suggestions for upcoming Walt Disney World trips. At times, I've been asked to take the reins and handle all the details of their itinerary, from booking the room to their dinner reservations.
