A Disneyfied Life Headshot

Hi everyone!  I’m Denise from the Charlotte, NC area and I’m a mom to two Disney characters of my own– a 15-year-old prince and 14-year-old princess.  My husband and I have been married just about 17 years and I have totally brainwashed him into loving all things Disney right along with the rest of us.  We are Disney Vacation Club Members and have stayed at all but one DVC on-property resort.  We’ve been on one Disney cruise with more to come and I’ve shuffled through five runDisney 5K’s.   I visit the Walt Disney World Resort about four times a year and I still don’t think that’s enough.  And for what it’s worth, my favorite Disney character is Tinker Bell.   I’m an eternal optimist who firmly believes life is better with a spoonful of sugar!

As far as I’m concerned, Walt Disney World is not just a collection of theme parks, but a way of life.  As evidenced by our annual family visits, the Walt Disney World Resort is head and shoulders above any other vacation destination for me and my family.  Of course there’s the wide variety of attractions, and the amazing hotel resorts, but for me it’s all about suspension from reality.  It’s as if one of the Handy Helpers from Mickey’s Clubhouse reaches down and plucks us from reality and plops us down smack dab in the middle of Fantasyland.  Not only are we surrounded by state-of-the-art entertainment, but also optimism, the importance of playing together as a family and of course, the testimony that dreams really can come true.

Walt said it best.  “It has this thing—the imagination, the feeling of happy excitement—that I had when I was a kid.”  I am thrilled to share that happy excitement through A Disneyfied Life.

If you dream of wishes coming true, princesses dancing with dashing princes and woodland creatures cleaning your house, you’ve come to the right place!  I’ll be posting weekly so be sure to stop by for your regular dose of Disney.  What you won’t read here is the reporting of Disney breaking news.  There are so many wonderful Disney blogs who have established themselves in that area, I can’t imagine why I would do so.  But what I may do is view that news through the lens of our family trips, memories past and memories yet to be!

Please fill up your favorite Mickey mug, adjust your Mickey ears and get comfortable.  Step inside A Disneyfied Life to get your Disney on!
