First memory of Disney? Although my first trip to Disney was for the Grand Opening of the Magic Kingdom, I was a little young for those memories. One of my first memories is a few years later sitting on the curb along Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and watching in awe the Electrical Light Parade. My father loved the parade so much that he bought the soundtrack (an album!) to the Electrical Light Parade so we could enjoy the music at home.
What makes Disney MAGICAL in your eyes? There are so many things I love at about Disney! First, no one does customer service like Disney. From exceptional Cast Members, beautiful costuming, magical shows and entertainment, and creative theming and design, Disney holds the bar high for how service should be delivered. Second, there is something truly magical watching fairytales and stories come alive through the eyes of your child.
Favorite Disney destination and why? Walt Disney World is definitely my favorite Disney destination! I love all the rides, shows and recreational opportunities that are offered throughout the parks and resorts.
Favorite Disney Character and why? Pluto! Pluto has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. I’m a dog lover and I can’t help but love this silly pup!
Favorite Disney Attraction and why? Space Mountain! This is the first roller coaster I can remember riding and the fact that you are riding in the dark makes it extra fun!
Favorite Disney Resort and why? I love the beauty and majestic appearance of the Grand Floridian. My family and I love going there even if we are staying elsewhere and we especially love the beautiful tree and the Gingerbread House during the Christmas season.
Favorite Disney Restaurant and why? My favorite restaurant is Chef Mickey! I love getting to interact with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto!
Favorite Disney Quick Service Restaurant and why? My family enjoys Harbor House in the Magic Kingdom. I like the variety of food, quieter location and when my child walked up to the counter with her Happy Birthday button on all the Cast Members sang to her!
3 Disney characters you’d like to have dinner with and why? I would love to have dinner with Pluto, of course, and Mickey and Cinderella. These are three of my childhood favorites
Favorite Disney snack and why? I love the huge cinnamon rolls at Gaston’s Tavern.

Disney character you’re most similar to and why? Like Cinderella, I eagerly awaited for my Prince Charming!
If you could be one Disney mascot for a day who would it be and why? I think it would be exciting to be Cinderella for a day. I love seeing how little ones light up when they see there favorite princess.
If you could work at one of the Disney theme parks, what job would you want and why? I would love to be one of the Cast Members that accompany Mickey Mouse so that I see the joy on everyone’s faces as they interact with this special character.
