Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom, Cinderella Castle

Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom is one of my very favorite places on Earth.

Our new writer Theresa!

{My Dreams of Disney would like to welcome Theresa, one of our new writers, and thank her for her post today!  This is her introductory post, so make sure you say hi and make her feel welcome!  Thanks!}

Hello everyone! First and foremost, I want to say thank you to Mike for setting up this wonderful site and allowing me to be a part of it. Since you are here, I am guessing that either you are a Disney fan or are curious and want more Disney in your life. I know Mike has worked hard getting this going and you are probably asking yourself who’s this new person and why should I care about anything she has to say?

Please let me begin by telling you a bit about myself. My name is Theresa and I LOVE Walt Disney World. In fact, much of my free time is spent thinking about it. If I’m not actually at Disney World, I am either planning my next trip or reliving the memories of a previous trip. I have been to Disney World 16 times and am in my countdown phase for my next trip (in February of 2013). I have stayed both “on property” as well as hotels near Disney World and have opinions and thoughts about on property vs. off property stays. Also, I am a “details” person and therefore tend to notice things others don’t usually notice and am always happy to share those tidbits of information.

My friends and family have often said I am such a Disney fan, I should work for Disney. To be honest, I did apply to work in Disney World and given that I have an Associate’s degree in Hospitality Management, I would have been a good fit. In fact, I was offered a job as soon as I was able to get myself moved to Orlando and settled in. In the long run, I decided that I couldn’t be that far away from my family and my daughters were settled here in Massachusetts (where I live). I felt that it would be selfish of me to uproot their lives for my dream. That being said, I am the “Disney” expert that people turn to for trip planning and any Disney World related questions.

I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you. If there is something specific you would like to know about, please feel free to leave comments at any time. I will try to answer them quickly; if an answer is in-depth, I will probably base a post on it. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
