Now, I’m a busy mom of two young boys, and wife to my husband Chris. We took our boys for their very first trip to Disney World in December of 2013 (it was my husband's first trip too!) and they fell head over heels in love with it. Now, we’ve got two trips on the horizon including a big family trip that I’m planning for 2016.
While helping a friend plan her first Disney trip, I realized that nothing like this site exists. Melissa, Lindsey and I are real moms who want to help other families plan their Disney trips, without feeling like they need to learn a foreign language. Disney planning should be fun and it’s our goal to help make planning your first or fiftieth trip a blast!
Hi y’all! Lindsey here. My husband, Nick, and I have been married since June 2005. We have a daughter, Anniston, and two dogs, BJ and Oscar. We’re from Arkansas and there are several things you should know about us. 1) We love God. 2) I love the Hogs; my poor husband loves the Oklahoma State Cowboys, bless his heart. However, we’ll choose not to judge him based on that, um kay? 3) We love spending time together as a family. 4) We love Disney.
We’ve taken two trips to Disney World together. Our first was May 2011 when Anniston was almost two. It was just the three of us. Our second was October 2013 when Anniston was four. This trip included our extended families as well as our own. May 2011 was both Nick and Anniston’s first trips. I’ve been several times before with my family, but these two were my first two to plan on my own.
Our love for Disney runs deep and I want to share that love with others. Planning the trip is almost as fun as going on the trip! I’m hoping that I can share a little of my knowledge with you so that you can have a fun and memorable trip.
I’m Melissa, Mom and blogger over at Superchikk.com. My husband Chris and I were married in 1998, and nine whole years later, we welcomed our son into our family, followed by our daughter three and a half years later. We are originally from Arkansas (Go Hogs!) and now live in the Nashville, TN area. I’m a stay/work at home Mom and we homeschool…life is an adventure around here every day!
I used to think that people who went crazy over planning their Disney trips were, well, crazy. I’d been before - what was the big deal? And then we decided to take our kids in the fall of 2013. I started planning…and went crazy. I call it the Disney Vortex. It sucks you in and you don’t even care! I loved planning our trip, but I felt like there was a huge learning curve. There was a whole new language associated with Disney that I had to learn, not to mention trying to figure out how to do everything we wanted to do with kids and come out alive on the other side. All the hard work paid off – we had an absolute blast and I started looking into our next trip before we were even off of the Disney property.
