I feel as if my entire life I’ve loved Disney, and everything about it. I grew up going to Disney World with my family. We stayed at Fort Wilderness and and my grandparents came along, then we stayed at the All Stars and Port Orleans. What great memories to cherish! It planted the love for Disney World I still carry with me.
In high school I was ecstatic to find out our marching band would be traveling to Disney World and parading down Main Street. As a member of the dance team that was a dream come true and I vowed to do it again! While I was attending Penn State I found out Disney was coming to do auditions, I couldn’t miss out. I still remember the day I found out I was accepted into the College Program in the Entertainment Department (characters!) and was among a select few to be chosen to be an Elfin in the Tapestry of Dreams Parade. To work for Disney and see how they operate behind the scenes was fascinating. I get asked all the time, ‘Didn’t that ruin the magic for you?’ No, it did not, I only appreciated it more!
When my husband and I were planning our honeymoon, I suggested Disney World because he had never been. Well I got him hooked too! He couldn’t believe the level of detail and quality of the services you receive.
We also visited Universal and their thrilling attractions. The Incredible Hulk is still one of our favorite coasters. We even went back for our 1-year anniversary and just booked our 10-year anniversary trip. Now we have two boys who I've passed that 'obsession' onto. We took our boys on their first trip when they were 3 1/2 and 15 months. At first, we thought our youngest would be too young to enjoy it but boy were we wrong! To see him interact and respond to the characters is a wonderful memory we have along with the photos of him trying to put Mickey and Minnie’s noses in his mouth! On our last trip we brought my in laws along. They were in awe after the first day. What they thought would be a once in a lifetime trip has turned into ‘we’re saving already for the next trip, let us know when you’re going!’
I’m a very detailed and organized person so planning these trips caters to my strengths. My husband used to send around his office the spreadsheet I made for our trips, so I thought why not turn this into a career. I started planning Disney vacations in 2018.
