Hello! I’m Kristen and I have always been a Disney fan. My family did Disney World vacations every other year until my early 20’s. I cannot express how many wonderful Disney World memories I have. It’s something I encourage everyone to experience. I experienced Disney as a very young child, then through my teenage years and finally as an adult. Twice I visited as part of a performance group, even being able to go “back stage”. There is just something truly magical about walking into Disney World- you can’t quite put your finger on it, but it’s definitely there.
I am a mother of a 3-year-old and the aunt of 2 amazing teenagers. I have experienced Disney with all of them. I know what it is like to experience things with a young child, with pre-teens and with teenagers. There is something special about each stage. The experiences and adventures are different at each stage of your life.
When not vacationing, you can find me teaching first grade in the public-school system. I also teach dance to young children and teenagers a couple of nights a week. I have many enjoyments in life, of which, my trips to Disney are part of those enjoyments.
On our last trip to Disney, I cried the day we left to go to Disney because I had been waiting for this moment for so long. I crave the unexplainable happiness and joy one experiences when walking into the park. I look forward to helping you find that experience for your family.
