    “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever” -Walt Disney-

    This is one of my favorite quotes by Walt Disney, who I have been a fan of my entire life. This quote reflects everything when visiting a Disney park and that is exactly what I want to share with you!

    I didn’t get to go to Walt Disney World until I was an adult and even though I wasn’t a child, I still immediately fell in love with it. I can still even remember the very first time I saw Cinderella’s castle I literally started to tear up. The magic just grabs hold of you.

    I have two Pomeranian dogs that have Disney names. They are Pixie (short for Pixie Dust) & Fozzie the Bear. I got married in October 2014 and my husband and I decided to have our “Disneymoon” at Walt Disney World. We wanted to have an experience we would never forget for the rest of our lives and at WDW we nailed it. WDW had us taken care of and treated us right with all their services and extras like amazing customer service, extravagant resorts, delicious dining, and fun seasonal extras like Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party. It was definitely the best vacation we could have wished for.

    My friends and family have been taking my advice on their Disney vacations for a couple of years now. These vacations have been everything from Disney-moons to family outings.

    I have a lot of enthusiasm, experience, and love for Disney. I hope to share that with you and enrich your plan on your magical vacation.

    My first Disney experience was when I visited Disneyland in California with my parents and sister, as a child. Later, in my teen years, we visited Disney World in Florida. Those trips were the most memorable of my childhood. Fast forward a few years, and I’m a newlywed looking for a place to honeymoon. I convince my new husband that Disney World would be fun, after all it’s the “Happiest Place on Earth”. So we go, we love it, and we haven’t looked back since. It’s almost a decade later, and we’re now visiting Disney twice a year. As an annual passholder and now DVC member, I’ve experienced Disney during the seasons and it’s many festivals, I’ve stayed at many of the resorts, and I have enjoyed nearly all of it’s restaurants through the Disney Dining program. I’ve become the go to Disney “expert” amongst my family and friends and I truly enjoy sharing that knowledge. Please allow me to help you plan your next Disney adventure, whether it’s your first visit or you’re a seasoned veteran, like me.
