I just retired from 20 years of Active Duty Army Service and am so excited to start a new venture and help others plan wonderful Disney and other vacations. I was not fortunate to visit Disney as a child and my first trip was to Disneyland in 1995 as a 19 year old. Once I got married and had kids trips to Disney became a regular vacation location. Our first family trip was in March 2006 with a 3 1/2 year old and 6 month old and we had a blast. We went back in November 2009 (kids were 7 and 4); December 2011 (we now had three kids, 9, 6, and again 6 months) and this time we took my parents on their first ever Disney trip to celebrate 45 years of marriage, they loved it; and November 2013 (kids 11, 8, 2) . In June 2015, we took our first Disney Cruise to the Bahamas with friends 4 adults and 6 kids 12, 12, 12, 9, 4, and 9 months. In January 2016, I ran my first Disney marathon and half marathon (we did not due park days this trip) and 4 months later we returned to Disney world in May 2016 with my parents (they really loved these vacations) and celebrated our third son’s 5th birthday (kids 13, 10, 5, and 2.5). In June we took another cruise, this time with my parents, to Alaska to celebrate 50 years of marriage (kids 14, 11, 6, and 2.5). In January of 2018 ,I ran another marathon and we traveled as a huge group of 4 families with 5 adults and 10 kids ages 17, 15, 15, 15, 15, 14, 12, 8, 6, and 3, and this time we had our newly adopted daughter with Down Syndrome. As you can see I absolutely love Disney and we try to go often. We have also started incorporating the Disney Cruises which are a blast and so different from the park experience. I would love to help you plan your next Disney or other vacation. Please use my experience and knowledge to help you create a memorable Disney experience whether it is at on of the parks or on a cruise. I am also happy to help with other vacations. As my promise to you if I can’t answer your question I will find someone who can. Let me take some of the stress of planning off your shoulders so you can just enjoy those awesome family moments.
