Hello, my name is Mike Beyer. I have been mar­ried to my beau­ti­ful bride, Heather, for twelve years and we have two amaz­ing daugh­ters, Hadlie and Ma­cie. I’ve had a life­long con­nec­tion with Dis­ney, but never re­al­ized how pow­er­ful it was un­til my first trip to Walt Dis­ney World as a hus­band and fa­ther. Now, ev­ery as­pect of my life has a con­nec­tion to Dis­ney , from my pet’s names, to my home dec­o­ra­tions…and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

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!
