Hi everyone!

I’m Kristin – a military spouse, a mommy to two little ones, a Florida native living in the desert, and a Disney lover! 

A little about me – Growing up in Florida meant LOTS of Disney World trips. Disney was literally my playground, and trips there were frequent. In fact, my first visit was at 18-months old, and I’ve been (at least) yearly ever since, totaling over 50 visits!  My love of Disney started young – it seemed everything in Disney was magical, and I carried that magic with me as I grew up.

Trips as a kid gradually grew into trips as a teenager in high-school, then soon I was taking trips with my college boyfriend (turned husband), and fun day trips with my little sister. Seems I blinked, and I was taking amazing trips with my babies, who are now 4 and 1!

As you can see, Disney is an integral piece of my life, woven into my personal tapestry, forming some of the most amazing memories that I will cherish forever.

Disney is a special place to so many, and I’m blessed that it’s such a special place to me. I sincerely hope I can share the many magical places a Disney vacation can take you!
