Hey everybody! I am so excited and honored to be the newest on the ConciEARS team!
Disney has been a huge part of my life since the very beginning. I was less than a year old when I first started going to Disneyland. Ever since I was 3 years old, I’ve had an annual pass almost every single year until now. I grew up watching all the Disney Classics on VHS and I celebrated many birthdays at the park!
My love for Disneyland has grown deep throughout the years and a huge part of it is all the memories I share with my family. I am the oldest of five girls. I have an immense amount of core memories spending time at Disneyland feeling pure joy with my sisters and parents there. As I got older, it became too hard for my parents to afford passes for all of us. I made sure my two youngest sisters always had a pass to experience what I got to at their age. I also have cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents that love Disneyland as well! The countless memories are just so precious to me and I’m blessed to have so many of them with so many people I love!
My favorite things to do at Disneyland are seeing the characters, taking obnoxious amounts of pictures of Sleeping Beauty Castle and the Mark Twain, and going into all of the stores and buying way too much merchandise - especially pins! I love getting a Mickey waffle in the morning at Carnation Café at an outside table, taking in Main Street as I eat! My two absolute ideal times to be in Disneyland are at night and when it’s a super rainy day. Fantasmic is everything to me. When it ran every night in the summertime, I would watch the show a few times a week! Also, there’s nothing like the fireworks. They make my emotional even now and I’ll never lose my amazement and awe for them.
I’m so obsessed with Disneyland that I sometimes neglect talking about Disney California Adventure but I love that park as well! Cars Land is my favorite place to be - especially at night! I absolutely love the Lamplight Lounge. I like to visit in the morning for brunch with unlimited refills of hot chocolate and at night eating lobster nachos and mini doughnuts! No matter the time I’m there, I love to sit outside on the pier to look out at the water and Mickey’s Fun Wheel. Sorry. Pixar Pal-A-Round!
Disney is such a passion for me whether movies, random trivia, the parks around the world, or history of Walt Disney and Disneyland. My dream is to visit every Disney Resort around the world. So far I visited Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World. Disneyland Paris has the most beautiful castle I have ever seen and I absolutely adored their version of it’s a small world. When I decided to go to Walt Disney World for the first time, (Check out my first blog: A First-Timer’s Perspective) I was so thankful ConciEARS could assist me in my first WDW adventure. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without ConciEAR James. He even helped me book my second trip back four months later!
My favorite thing ever is to talk about Disney and my experiences. I have plenty of tips on food and how to navigate the parks. I can talk to you when your family is ready to book a magical vacation! I find pure joy in making other people feel as much magic as I do when they are in the Disney parks and can’t wait to help make your dreams reality!
