About Christie12

I am a self professed “Disney Nerd” originally from Maryland now residing in Wake Forest, NC with my husband and two daughters. My love of Disney began in elementary school with a massive crush on Prince Phillip after seeing “Sleeping Beauty” for the first time. I traveled to WDW as a young child in the 70s but hadn’t returned until 2000 with my then college sweetheart. (Now husband, lucky dog) The love affair with the parks ignited with that trip and hasn’t slowed. We’ve taken our daughters annually as soon as they were out of diapers, and fill the time that we aren’t at the parks with helping friends book their trips, listening to Disney music and incessantly quoting Disney movie lines to each other.
