Mad About the Mouse

mk37Welcome to the Mad About The Mouse blog.  ºoº   Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a complete Disney World freak and a walking wealth of knowledge of Disney history.   This magical world has captivated me since my first visit when I was only 19 months old in 1971, the year the Magic Kingdom opened.  With over 200 visits (I might be closer to 300 but I stopped counting a few years ago) to the Walt Disney World Resort in my life, I feel like I grew up there.  In essence, I kind of did….from childhood, to the teenage years, into adulthood and now with a child of my own to share the magic with, Disney is a huge part of my world.   There’s just no other way to say it – it truly is the most “Magical Place on Earth” and there is no place I would rather vacation than the Walt Disney World Resort.

It is a pleasure to share my experiences, my knowledge and some planning tips with you. With 42,000 acres of magic, 4 theme parks, 2 water parks. 24 themed resorts, 100 restaurants, Downtown Disney and other recreational and entertainment venues, there’s always something to share with my readers.  If you are planing your first visit to the most magical place on earth, planning can be a bit overwhelming. Relax – the information within this blog will help you make the plans that best suit your family’s needs.   This page is designed to help you make your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort your best trip ever.

I am not affiliated with The Walt Disney Company – although that would be REALLY cool.  I am however, a self-proclaimed expert, junkie, addict and all-around Disney freak.   Oh and how can I forget, I have also been an Honorary Citizen of Walt Disney World since 2005.  They really should hire me to sing their praises – I do it everyday anyway!

Enjoy this blog, I know I thoroughly enjoy creating it and would love to hear from you about your experiences as well.  Feel free to email me some of your pictures from your trip and I share them.  You can follow me on Twitter @disney_blogger and on Facebook at Mad about the Mouse.
