Disney and especially Disney World have always been special to me.
I started with my love FOR ALL THINGS DISNEY and W.D.W when I was very young. Besides seeing all the movies and the Sunday evening television episodes, my first trip to W.D.W. was in 1973.... I was three years old. Walt Disney World had been open for two years the first time I visited and the park was much different than it is now. There was only the Magic Kingdom, 2 hotels, no waterparks and you needed tickets to ride the attractions.After that first trip it was enough to hook me and my family, we became Disney regulars and have returned almost every year since.
As I got older, I have been able to watch W.D.W grow into the destination it has become. From EPCOT opening when I was 12, Disney Hollywood Studios when I was 18 and Animal Kingdom when I was in my twenties. As I grew up so did Walt Disney World, I even spent my honeymoon in the happiest place on earth.
One of my favorite things about a Disney vacation is the planning and anticipation of the trip. Whether it is W.D.W., Disney cruise or Disneyland .... once the dates are set, my family is constantly talking about our plans and all the things we are going to do.We start having vacation fun way before we even arrive.
That excitement didn't go unnoticed by others and soon I was either helping friends and family plan their trips or they were booking the same dates to go with my family.
Now that I have joined Destination Mouse I can share my love, knowledge and passion for ALL THINGS DISNEY!
So lets start enjoying your trip even before you arrive!
