As we continue on with our series, I’m bringing to you some blogs
that you might want to take a look at. I am both proud and honored to be
affiliated with both the great writers of Chip & Company, and the
incredible group that is known as the Magical Blogorail, and in this
small way, I hope to be able to say thanks to those bloggers that have
helped to make me the blogger that I am. Next on our list is my friend Amy’s site, Growing Up Disney!
When I say that this is Amy’s site, that isn’t entirely true. To be sure, Amy created the blog, and I believe she does the majority of the writing on the site, but this great Disney blog is a family blog! In addition to Amy, her brother Ridge (aka Chris) is a great writer, and even her Dad, her DisneyDad, takes his turn at writing some of the articles!
Amy and the rest of the Growing Up Disney team are charter members of the Magical Blogorail! They were present in the first post that was done, on the Blue line. When the Red line formed in February of this year, Amy and the rest of the team were gracious enough to join us on the red line (I can picture Beth saying, “Amy, I need you to go to the Red line, because all of the bloggers are great, except for this guy from My Dreams of Disney.“) Well, maybe not, but it sounds funny anyway!
The real fun for Amy is that she and her husband have two daughters, and the blog was started for two reasons: so that they could show the world how Tink is “Growing Up Disney” (and also her new baby!), and also so that Amy could show the world that she “Grew Up Disney!”
Some of the great things that you can find on their site are trip planning tips, tips for the kids in your lives, Ridge’s page, called “Around the World with Ridge”, and even a very special project that they work on called the “Minnie Moms”. When you through in the fact that they are Disney Vacations Members since 1993, it is really easy to see how they got the name “Growing Up Disney!”
This is a really great site, and if you have never seen it before, I urge you to take a look at it, spend some time on it, and see if you can learn how to grow up Disney at your home also!
