Disney and a new blog

Would you believe that I have another obsession besides my Cricut?  Yep, I do.  It started when I was 12  years old and visited Disney World in Florida just 8 months after it opened.  My mother is from Miami, so we went almost every year while I was growing up.  I continued that tradition with my own kids, and  now I've lost count of how many times I've been. Last year I was a very lucky girl and got to go to Euro Disney in Paris! (Finally something good about all my husband's traveling for work.)
My daughter is now just as obsessed, and in November, she took her new husband on his first Disney trip for their honeymoon.  Taryn and I have both been to Disneyland in California, and she has been to Tokyo Disney twice - the lucky girl!

I got a lot of insight into Walt Disney World in Florida when I worked for AOL for several years as a live Disney chat host.  I met so many awesome people who worked for Disney in one way or another, and I got a lot of perks from knowing them - free park admission, VIP show seats, private character meetings and some serious resort rate discounts!  Those days are gone, and my family and I are on our own now to find the steals and deals, and we want to share what we know with first-time visitors and fans.  Many of you here have already told me that you're also a little Disney crazy, so I wanted to tell you about my new experiment.  It's a mom-daughter venture, and we'll both be posting. I'm including the link in this post, but there will be a permanent link in the toolbar above, just below the page header, and there's a link back to here on the Disney page, too.

It's a very new page, so there isn't much in the way of posts yet, but there's a great little news feed with Disney-related stories and updates, and there's even a jigsaw puzzle all the way at the bottom of the page that will change periodically.  Sprinkle yourself with a little pixie dust and fly on over for a look.  Leave me a comment, too.  You KNOW how much I LOVE comments!
