To those of you visiting this site for the first time, welcome. To those of you who have been here before, welcome back. I’ve had this blog for almost three years now, and I write about everything from tips on navigating the parks, to Disney recipes, to film commentary, to ranty nonsense about whatever latest thing is happening.
I guess you could say I was raised on the Mouse. I grew up watching all the classic Disney animated films, begged for an upgraded cable package when The Disney Channel was introduced in the 80's (to no avail, I might add), then became glued to the TV when The Disney Channel became part of the basic cable package in 1996. My family and I went to WDW for the first time when I was about six or so, and then we went every few years during my childhood, and finally became DVC members when I was in my early twenties. Since then, we’ve been visiting the parks nearly every year, and it’s been wonderful.
I decided to start a blog after realizing that a Twitter account couldn’t really contain all the things I wanted to write about. I also recognize that my family isn’t what most people would consider “typical” Disney travelers – it’s just me, my mom, and my sister. No kids, no spouses, just three grown adults enjoying WDW together. I hope that our experiences bring a different perspective to the blogosphere, and if nothing else, it means that I talk about margaritas a lot.
And the name? Years ago, I was in a bar with friends and some guys started talking to us. It happened to come up during the conversation that I was leaving the following week for vacation, they asked me where I was going, I said to WDW, everybody looked at me strangely, the conversation moved on. I left the bar early to head to another shindig, and after I left, one of the guys asked my friend, “So what happened to that other girl? You know, the Disney Chick?” And history was made.
