As a child, on a family trip to Disney world, Amanda witnessed a bride and groom getting married at the Happiest Place on Earth. From that day on, she knew Disney World was the place to start her Happily Ever After. In June 2012, Amanda married her Prince Charming at the Wedding Pavilion at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. Disney has always held a special place in her heart. She has visited Disney over 15 times in her life and continues to see the mouse twice a year. She has stayed at many of the value, moderate, and deluxe Disney Resorts. Her favorite resort is the Grand Floridian, where she stayed on her honeymoon. One of her favorite things about Disney is the dining experiences. Disney’s Polynesian Resort’s ‘Ohana, is her favorite places to dine! One of her favorite memories, are the annual girls trips to Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival with her mother and sister! Her favorite snack option is the strawberry tart at Epcot’s France Pavillion, Boulangerie Patisserie.
She now has two little Mouseketeers who have just taken their first trip to Disney World! She has learned the ins and outs of doing Disney with small children. Seeing her daughter meet and interact with the characters was priceless. Hearing her daughter tell Mickey that she loved him, was something she will never forget! Being a Disney family, naturally they have a red cocker spaniel named Lady and a black and white cat named Figaro! She is new to Magical Vacation Planner but loves planning trips almost as much as going on them herself.
Amanda has experienced many of Disney’s annual events including: Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival, Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival, and special ticket events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
