I made my first trip to Disney World at the age of 4 and fondly remember watching the original Mickey Mouse Club on TV and dreaming of going back! Although I made several trips as a child and teen, marrying a military guy and then moving around the country with the Air Force had us vacationing in different places like Germany and Hawaii. When September 11, 2001, derailed our first "couple" Disney trip, we finally went in 2003! Moving to Hawaii for three years put a damper on Disney plans, but we took our son for his first visit in 2009, and we were hooked!
Since 2009, I've made dozens of Disney World trips, taken 10 Disney cruises, visited Disneyland twice, stayed at Aulani (Disney resort in Hawaii), Disney's Hilton Head Island, and Disney's Vero Beach Resort while celebrating five different birthdays, military R&R, pre- and post-deployment trips, and multiple anniversaries including our 20th wedding anniversary! We've stayed at fourteen different Disney World properties from Deluxe Resorts to Moderate Resorts and Value Resorts, two Disneyland resorts, and sailed on every Disney ship! I've sailed the Bahamas, eastern and western Caribbean, Panama Canal, Canada, and even Norway on a Disney ship!
As a military spouse, I am passionate about finding great prices for military families! I also love the cruises and am one of Wishdrawals' Disney Cruise Line experts!
