About Me

Hi, Friends! I'm Diana. A DOLE Whip loving, disco music dancing, dog Mom from New York. By day, I work in digital marketing, helping small business owners reach new heights, but by night you will most likely find me diligently planning my next Walt Disney World vacation while simultaneously binge-watching one of my favorite TV shows for the 100th time. Growing up in a performing arts family, I spent most of my childhood on stage. I may be long-since "retired," but I still almost always have a show tune stuck in my head. You can take the girl out of the theater, but you can't take the theater out of the girl!

While I may be a couch potato at home, when visiting Walt Disney World, I follow the wise words of Dory and "just keep swimming" from rope drop to park close with popcorn and Mickey bars as my fuel. I am the ultimate thrill-seeker! There is no rock 'n' limo ride too fast, no haunted elevator drop too high, and no Everest expedition too treacherous for me! I'm always on the hunt for the wildest ride in the wilderness!

About My Family

I married my high school sweetheart in 2015, but we have been together for more than 16 years! We met while performing in our school's production of "Crazy For You." Safe to say, we were crazy for each other as we have been together ever since! He even proposed in our school's auditorium, where we first met. After hearing news of an incoming storm while on our honeymoon in Hawaii, we decided to change our plans last minute to leave early and make a stop in California to visit Disneyland Resort for the first time! While it wasn't exactly what we had planned, it turned into one of the absolute highlights of our trip! We have two pups, Lucy and Sammy, whom I love more than a reasonable amount. I know my fellow dog parents will understand!

I had the privilege of visiting Walt Disney World with my parents and sister in 2021, more than 20 years after our last visit as a family. It was such a special experience to feel that timeless Disney magic as a family again, this time all as grown-ups. It's a memory I will cherish forever!

About My Disney Experience

While I did visit Walt Disney World Resort a few times as a child, I really fell under the spell of Disney Magic after my first "grown-up" trip to Walt Disney World in 2008. Since then, I have enjoyed using my Disney knowledge to spread extra pixie dust over numerous visits with friends, colleagues, and family of ALL ages. When it comes to types of Walt Disney World vacations, I have done it all! I've enjoyed adults-only group trips, visits with little ones, multi-generational vacations, last-minute getaways on a tight budget, and even splurge-worthy, once-in-a-lifetime VIP tour days. I feel so lucky to have experienced Walt Disney World in so many different ways, and I can say with absolute certainty that they were all fantastic!

I don't know about you, but I spend a lot of time daydreaming about my next trip to Walt Disney World and wishing I could go back in time to revisit some of my favorite Disney memories! There is something so special about reminiscing about magical moments from previous trips while simultaneously exploring new and exciting things the parks have to offer. So on each visit, I make sure to do what I call my "Blast from the Past & Wasn't Here Last" tradition, where I revisit something that brought me joy on a previous trip and then try something I haven't done before. It's a tradition I cherish and is my favorite part of any visit!
