I live in Wisconsin in the town that I grew up in. I am married with two children, and my family shares in the love for the Mouse.
My love for Disney began with a trip in 1992. I have special memories of that vacation spending time with my grandfather. My husband and I honeymooned at Walt Disney World in 1998 and we have made many return trips since then, even taking part in a Disney wedding. I have experienced Disney Cruise Line, spending time on the Disney Dream and the Disney Magic. As Disney Vacation Club members, my family returns to the magic quite regularly.
I love returning to the magic for new adventures and believe there is always something new or untried to experience with Disney. I know how overwhelming planning a Disney vacation can become and I want to help others have fun during the planning process by helping organize their vacation plans.
