My first visit to Disney World came in 1975 with the SC Safety Patrols Fieldtrip. I was amazed then and I still am today. My children’s first visit to Disney was in Disneyland Paris in 1995. My husband and I have become avid Disney fans over the past 4 years, visiting the Disney World Parks with our grandchildren, for a total of 65 days in Disney Parks. Many of those days it was just the two of us, enjoying the many special food festivals and taking in the details of the parks. We have enjoyed many different restaurants, shows, and have learned the ins and outs of scheduling our visits to maximize your experience. Many people are addicted to games on their phones, but my most-used App is the My Disney App.

One of my grandchildren has autism. We have learned how to navigate Disney with an autistic child and he begs to go back. I would love to help anyone with a Special Needs family member plan a magical vacation with as little stress as possible. Disney has implemented  a fantastic system to make sure everyone has a magical experience, and you can too with the right plans in place.
