About Me

My name is Yael and I am happy to be part of planDisney.  I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I am of Cuban descent and hablo español. I manage the HR department for a local municipality in South Florida.  I come from a large family, I have four siblings. My father was the sole provider and money was tight, yet he and my mom always planned the annual trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! In other words, I have lots of experience planning Disney trips on a budget!

About My Family

My husband Fabio and I have been happily married for 23 years, and we love traveling, especially as Disney Vacation Club Members. We're always looking forward to our next trip, whether it's to Disney parks, staying at their resorts, or going on Disney cruises.

Our family is pretty diverse in what they like. Michael, our oldest, is in college studying to be an engineer. Julian, the middle one, will begin training at the Fire Academy. Our youngest, Isabella, will be starting high school soon and all truly enjoy checking out the different restaurants and places to stay at Disney.

All three of our kids enjoy Disney Cruise vacations in addition to the weekend getaways to the Walt Disney World Resort. We all love the adventure, from visiting new places to having fun with all the activities and food on the ships and the parks.

As a family, we cherish our Disney trips because they bring us together and create special memories. We're excited for many more adventures to come.

About My Disney Experience

I'm a lifelong Disney enthusiast with a treasure trove of magical Disney memories! Having experienced Disney in various stages of my life – as a child, teenager, newlywed, and now a mom – I've accumulated over 100 visits to the Walt Disney World Resort, living just three hours away from Orlando. As an Annual Passholder, my family and I have enjoyed staying in almost every Disney Resort within the Walt Disney World Resort area, and we're proud Disney Vacation Club Members. Our home resorts include Disney's Riviera Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort, and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort.

One of our most cherished experiences was visiting Disney's Aulani Resort in Hawaii, and we're thrilled to be boarding Disney's newest cruise ship, Disney Wish, later this year. Each Disney trip is an adventure, often shared with a large group of family and closest friends. My kids and I are avid pin traders, with a special passion for collecting resort pins – but only from the resorts we've stayed at, giving us a great excuse to experience them all! We also love exploring new dining experiences on each visit, with one of my personal favorites being the Le Cellier restaurant in Epcot's Canada Pavilion – their poutine is a must-try!

Our family tradition includes attending Epcot's annual International Food & Wine Festival and the International Flower and Garden Festival. Beyond Walt Disney World Resort, we've explored Disneyland Paris, Disneyland California, and Disney's California Adventure. Our Disney Cruise Line adventures have taken us aboard four ships - Disney Dream, Disney Wonder, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Magic.

Looking ahead, we're excited about future visits to Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea, and more experiences with Disney's Aulani Resort in Hawaii. The Disney magic continues to be a significant part of our family's life, bringing us joy, wonder, and unforgettable memories. We can't wait for the many more Disney adventures that await us!
