Today our guest star is my dear Disney friend and fellow Magical Blogorail member, wife and super mom to 3 boys, Youth Minister, Beth creator of A Disney Mom's Thoughts
So, get comfy grab a cup of something warm (it's cold here in the northeast Internet;) while you get to know my friend Beth.
Welcome! Thank you Beth for joining us today and taking time away from your young family and busy work schedule to share a little bit about yourself and your blog as our Guest Star today.
*Let's hear a big round of cyber applause for Beth
My parents. My dad grew up with the plan to be an animator for Walt Disney. We always watched Disney cartoons and I would watch my dad draw things all the time. We took our first trip to WDW in 1983. I loved it! Growing up, between trips we would watch The Wonderful World of Disney, The Disney Channel and Disney movies. I loved them all. When I was graduating college in 1996, my parents said I could choose the destination for our family vacation… I chose Walt Disney World! This was the first time we stayed on property and I fell that much more in love. Before my ’96 trip, I had been 3 times. Since graduation, 16 years ago, I’ve been 16 times! While that averages once a year, it hasn’t always been the case.
I started my Disney blog for multiple reasons. 1) I was tired of “stalking” other Disney blogs since I felt I could do one of my own. 2) I wanted a place to keep my memories alive. 3) I wanted to attend the Social Media Mom’s Conference and knew I needed to have a presence in Social Media to attend!
Both. While I’m at WDW, I hardly sleep. I want to be there for the rope drop AND the goodnight kiss! We usually go back to the room for an afternoon nap, or at least a rest, so we can keep going.
What is your favorite Disney dining location?
Hands down is Le Cellier! I’ve only eaten there once and that was in February of this year. My husband and I both loved it and can’t wait to go back. It will probably be a standard dining reservation from now on.
Dole Whip or Mickey Bar?
Mickey Bar. I’m not a fan of the Dole Whip. I’m a chocoholic!
Face character is a couple- Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen. They are HILARIOUS! My favorite fur character is Goofy… but you gotta love Mickey Mouse too!
The Boardwalk is my favorite that I’ve actually stayed in, but the Polynesian is my favorite that I will stay in at some point. Plus ‘Ohana is also top on my list of restaurants!
If I were to be a character, I would want to be Belle in the Magic Kingdom. I’d also like to be the one responsible for the Mom’s Panel group!
Pins, Christmas ornaments, sweatshirts, hotel shampoo and pressed pennies!
What is your favorite Disney movie?
I love The Little Mermaid, Mulan and Beauty and the Beast. I like the 90’s princesses the best!
What’s your favorite Disney song?
Right now it’s “SIMP Squirrels in my Pants” from Phenias and Ferb!
What is your favorite Disney book?
I have to admit I’m not a reader. But, I do enjoy a good Birnbaum guidebook! I also love The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World by Susan Veness.
Let’s hear about your blog. Do you have a niche or specialty?
My specialty is rambling about Disney! I try to blog from a mother’s perspective (which is good since I’m a mom!) and offer tips and ideas about traveling to WDW with your family. Then there’s a lot of rambling too!
What is it that inspires you to write about Disney?
