I am Heather from Buffalo NY! I am a wife, mom to John (2 years) and Sophia (5 months), Oncology nurse, Christian, and Disney fanatic! I literally eat, sleep, and breathe Disney!
My real love affair with Disney started about 8 years ago. My family took our first ever vacation to Disney! It was August 2004 and 3 hurricanes tore through Florida making it impossible to fly. Our family of 9 hopped into a van and made the 24 hour trek! The day that we arrived was one of the best days of my life! My boyfriend (at the time) had made reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table. We had a great dinner and dessert. Wishes had just started over the castle and the waiter brought us our check. He offered to take a picture of the two of us. As I handed him the camera, my boyfriend was down on one knee and asked for my hand in marriage! I was so excited! I of course said yes! We received a standing ovation from the entire restaurant! That trip was so magical!

My name is Kelly and I am from the South side of Chicago, along with my husband, three children, 2 cats, 2 guinea pigs and a lazy beagle. It's a loud and crazy house to say the least! I was lucky enough to leave my "real" job as a Financial Analyst to raise our children. Now I have been able to start my own cake business, coach my daughter's softball team, be VP of our middle school PTSA, and talk everyone's ear off about all things Disney.
My obsession with Disney started when I was a preteen and my family drove cross country to Disneyland. I vividly remember standing in a crowd, staring up at the fireworks, when a young boy standing next to me reached over and held my hand. It was pure magic. Even though I have grown up since then, I still find that magic in every visit.

Hi, I am Judy and I live in Chicago (yes really in Chicago) with my husband Paul and our two rescue dogs Caleb, who kind of reminds us of Pluto (he is a bloodhound) and Claudine who is a Bluetick Coonhound.
I am not sure if my husband knew what he was getting into when we got married, but my love of Disney started when I seven and my family took a cross-country trip in a VW Bus from Chicago to LA and Disneyland! I got to go again when I graduated from 8th grade, because my Uncle lived in southern California. As I did not have a lot of money back then the only thing I could really afford where a couple of small plates with Mickey Mouse on them. Then my Grandmother moved to Florida, not too far from Walt Disney World, and we were able to spend summers with her and we would go to Disney and I added to my plate collection. When we got married our first real vacation together and my husband’s first ever plane ride and vacation not near his home, was to Walt Disney World, and so I now have him “hooked” on Disney too. We have more than those small plates, but it is also a mutual enjoyment of all things Disney. We have attended quite a few special events at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World and enjoy taking the tours that are offered at all the parks. I have helped quite a few people plan there Disney vacations and I am a member of a local moms group and have help quite a few of them too.
Greetings from New Jersey!
My name is Tricia and I live just outside Ocean City in southern NJ with my husband Scott, beautiful daughter Makena, and two dogs, Kingston and Bailey. I am a self-proclaimed Disney groupie but I am also a full time Detective in Cape May County, NJ so I like to joke that my investigative mode never gets a rest because when I’m not investigating crime, I’m investigating Disney.
My husband and I were confident that we would be coming back the Walt Disney World Resort so often once our daughter was born that we decided to become DVC members in 2009 and haven’t looked back since. We now travel to Walt Disney World two to four times per year and have stayed at nearly every resort on property. I have a wide range of experience, spanning many different aspects of planning a Disney Parks vacation, that I'm so excited to share.
