My first Disney experience was in 2012.  I had just started dating my now husband and we took his 2 daughters to Walt Disney World in Florida.  After that first trip, I knew I was going to be a Disney fan for life.  Since then, I have gone multiple times a year.  I have planned all of my trips as well as trips for close family, from adults-only to those with toddlers, school-age kids, teens, and Grandparents.

My favorite season at Disney World is the Christmas holiday season.  I get excited to walk down Main Street surrounded by all the park decorations and the smell of yummy gingerbread coming from the confectionery.  Sometimes I will resort hop just to see the large, eye-catching Christmas trees with oversized themed ornaments in the lobby.  It is a magical way to spend the holiday!

I have had the pleasure of visiting Disneyland and the Aulani Resort and Spa while on my honeymoon.  Also, I enjoy tasting the variety of foods at many unique restaurants in the parks and resorts.  This has become a favorite pastime of mine, which I enjoy sharing with anyone exploring Disney options.

The diverse personal knowledge of the parks, attractions, restaurants, and resorts I’ve accumulated this past decade, throughout all of the seasons, in varying company, makes this Mouse Expert equipped and excited to help you navigate your next trip.  I look forward to hearing from you so together we can make your next Disney vacation full of magical memories.
