The reason I love Disney is because it feels like I’m coming home every time I visit.  I grew up in Florida so I spent a lot of time at Walt Disney World, as a child traveling with my family and as a teenager driving to the parks with my friends.  It’s all about that feeling of nostalgia for me. Reliving old memories and creating new ones. It’s the reason my family and I keep going back and the reason I love helping others plan magical vacations.

The Disney parks have so many rides that I love.  Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a classic and takes me back to my childhood and Radiator Springs Racers is always a blast, but, if I could only ride one ride all day long, it would be Toy Story Mania.  I am desperate (with a capital D!) to beat my husband’s score!! He even beat me while holding a baby in his lap!

My ultimate Disney upgrade is the Concierge Level on the Disney Cruise Line.  It is amazing!! A few of my favorite benefits include: getting the first chance at booking those heavenly cabanas on Castaway Cay, priority check-in and a personal escort on to the ship, and the Concierge Lounge which is always stocked with delicious treats and beverages.  As soon as I sailed Concierge I was hooked!

My family never visits Universal Orlando without the Express Pass.  It makes our trips feel much more relaxed and gives us the time to ride our favorite attractions over and over again (the two Harry Potter rides, of course).

One of my favorite hidden gems is the Nomad Lounge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  You can easily walk by it and not even notice the shaded, cozy terrace. But, if you do happen upon it, it’s a great place to sit, unwind and enjoy an appetizer and beverage.
