    I’m worried that there isn’t enough Kleenex in Anaheim to get me through 4 days at Disneyland. When I see my kids’ faces when they meet “actual” Belle and Ariel and Mickey.... what is going to happen to me?? Is it normal for moms to be sobbing at Disney?

    Hi, Lisa!

    Between the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World, I have made almost 100 trips. Yet, somehow, I still get teary-eyed every time I see Cinderella Castle, Sleeping Beauty Castle, or any Disney fireworks! All the memories of traveling with my parents, my husband, and my kids is just overwhelming. I am just so grateful for all of the wonderful times I have had in the Disney Parks.

    So go ahead, shed a tear or even a bucket full! Really, nobody will judge you as everyone feels the love when surrounded by all the magic. My best advice to you is to take lots of pictures. Looking back at all the special moments mean even more as time goes by. Have autograph books handy so your kids can get their favorite Disney pals to sign their books. 

    During your magical visit, remember that you cannot experience everything. Take your time, soak it all in. Live in the moment with your kids and enjoy the "now!"  Plan for some special experiences like character dining at Goofy's Kitchen or maybe the World of Color Dessert Party. There are many special ways to enjoy your vacation, so do what makes everyone happy. 

    Pack your tissues, put on your waterproof mascara, have plenty of photo space on your phone and have the time of your life at the Happiest Place on Earth!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
