I got bit by the Disney mouse in 2012. What started as a 2 day trip to Walt Disney World quickly turned into a passion for our family. While we have always loved Disney movies, we had no idea how magical Walt Disney World could be. We have since returned 3 times, and are always planning our next Disney vacation. One of my twin daughters first words was “Minnie” They are becoming addicted to Disney just like their dad! Helping people plan their magical vacations brings a big smile to my face. It doesn’t get much better than seeing families enjoying their vacations because of your help!
