One of "My Favorite Things" ~My Family
Since the time I was a little girl, I have always loved Disney. I wanted to become an animator for Disney because of my love for art. I can draw free-hand any Disney Character and would also do hand-painted wall murals...It took me 24 yrs at the age of 29 to visit Walt Disney World back in 1999, when I traveled with my husband on our honeymoon 3 yrs after we were married, it was so worth the wait! Seeing all of the families taking their children and grandchildren to experience the magic through their eyes made my husband and I want to start a family of our own. In 2000 we had our 1st of five sons'.
It took us 10 yrs to get back to the " Where Dreams Come True" and it was a different circumstance for us. One we have our not one but three sons' and second, our youngest son Tony was born with a life threatening illness that has him awaiting a transplant for the past 5 yrs, that we were able to visit through a Make-A Wish trip.
(In August of 2016 he received a multi-visceral transplant.)
We have been back to the Walt Disney World over 60 plus times, giving our family and especially Tony memories that will keep his spirits alive prior and receiving his transplant comes that will aide him through his lengthy recuperation. Our favorite Walt Disney World Resort is the Disney's Fort Wilderness Campsites and Resorts... although we have stayed at Disney's Saratoga Springs Spa & Resorts, Port Orleans-Riverside, Caribbean Beach, Old Key West ,Boardwalk Villas Resorts,and several of the value resorts we always come back to the campsites and call Disney's Fort Wilderness our second home!
Staying at the Disney's Fort Wilderness Campsites and Resorts we are very close to Magic Kingdom, the boys can fish,swim,canoe,bike ride,archery,attend the campfire sing-a-long with Chip and Dale and watch a Disney Movie every night under the stars etc ... They really love driving around the Loops at night in the golf cart (which is a MUST) looking at the decorated campsites and making wonderful new and forever friends. Our family was given a once-in-a -lifetime memory that will always be very special to us, the title of being "Grand Marshals of Magic Kingdom ". On Sunday, October 2nd,2011 we were told to arrive by 2:30pm at City Hall, the award was given to our sons' Vincent and Dominic who for 6 years had been fundraising on behalf of their younger brother Tony,12 who since birth had been battling Total Colonic Hirschsprung's Disease and Short Bowel Syndrome. He had been on the list to receive a stomach,small & large intestine,pancreas and liver transplant for 5 years. More of my son's story can be found on two websites that his brother's created for him www.aftft.com and www.mybrothersbreadsllc.com .
My history starts with working with my late Daddy in his business that gave me the tools needed to be successful in anything I try to achieve and so far being successful with my sons' is what I'm extremely proud of. Prior to their birth and after my dear Daddy passed, I stayed in the automotive industry ,but instead of selling trucks and managing the garage, I went to work at the start a Member Service Counselor-Travel Agent with AAA Lancaster County to co -managing 3 AAA Offices, revamping the Emergency Road Service,to reviewing AAA suppliers to our members, ensuring our members were receiving their discounts offered to apping customers and guiding them with all of their travel needs. It also gave me the experience to help sell my favorite destination "Walt Disney World". Although my goal is to live near there and work for Disney, my fix in the meantime was working at the local Disney Store and getting back into what I love to do, helping other families with their dreams and make then come true, with inside tips, experiences and planning memorable vacations that will last a lifetime!.
