    I see that you are a "walking encyclopedia of all things Disney! Frequent trips"!! I was wondering what your "best" tips were??

    Hi Jessica!

         I knew that biography would come back and haunt me!  How do I live up to my own description of myself???  You have already taken my number one piece of advice, which is to plan ahead.  The more information you know about ride restrictions, menus and character interaction, the happier your family will be!  For instance, checking out if your child is tall enough to ride Splash Mountain beforehand, may prevent a heartbreaking experience upon arrival.  Visit websites such as and go over the menus with your family and let them help pick out restaurants that sound appealing to them!

         Once you arrive at the happiest place on Earth, take your time!  While scheduling your days is very important, don't over plan every last detail.  Listen to your family, if they need a break-take it.  Depending on which how many days you will be spending at Disney World, why not let your family vote on which parks they would like to visit again?  I have found that including your family members in certain decisions will make everyone happier!

         Why don't you let me know the ages/interests of your family members and I can give you some specific ideas for your family!

    Much pixie dust,
