Growing up, I always wanted to go to Disney World and never got the chance. During my junior year of college, the campus newspaper went to Disney World for a journalism convention. During the convention, I was able to spend some time at MGM Studios (now Hollywood Studios) and Epcot. Just being immersed in that little bit of Disney, I was hooked. The next summer, I went back for my first real Disney World vacation with some friends. Ever since that trip, Disney World has always been my favorite place to go.

When my husband and I got married, we didn’t have to research honeymoon destinations, we already knew we wanted a Disney World honeymoon! In 2004, our twins were born and I joined the local Mothers of Multiples club. During one of our meetings, in 2007, Melissa Slamb (Magical Vacations owner) came and spoke to our group about how easy it is to travel to Disney destinations with children. I went home that night and told my husband all about the meeting!

I called Melissa and booked a trip for that December. The twins were 3 years old when we went. It was a wonderful trip!  We stayed at Pop Century and had a blast! I remember getting choked up when it was time to leave. It was so fun to see the magic of Disney through my children’s eyes. Doing something that I had always dreamed of being able to do as a child.

After that first family trip, we have gone to Disney World every year since! I love that my kids are growing up Disney!! We have had the pleasure of staying at many of the Walt Disney World Resorts. We have been able to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Epcot’s Candlelight Processional, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival and Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. Each of these events have given us memories to cherish for a lifetime!

We have also had the opportunity to take our family on a Disney Cruise. Our first cruise was when our kids were 6 years old. We embarked on the 3-night Bahamian Cruise aboard the Disney Dream. Since that first cruise, we have been back on Disney Cruise Ships several times.

We have also had the pleasure of going to Disneyland for Thanksgiving. We had a blast! It was an awesome feeling to be at the place where Walt Disney started it all. And to top it off, we had our Thanksgiving dinner with Goofy and his pals at Goofy’s Kitchen!

I love discovering all that Disney has to offer for my family and would love to help your family plan and discover the magic of Disney!  Contact me if you want to learn more about Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruises, Adventures by Disney or their other resorts like Aulani in Hawaii!
