Hello and Welcome!

Hi! I am Amanda and I decided to create a Disney blog for my new obsession with all things Disney! I have always been a big fan of Disney movies, as we had and watched all of them as a child. We went to Walt Disney World once, when I was in second grade, but never got the chance to go again.

In March of 2010, my in-laws took the whole family (9 of us total!) to Disney World and we had so much fun. From the minute we got there, I was completely in awe and hooked on Disney! We stayed for 8 days and celebrated our son's 2nd birthday at Chef Mickey's! Even my husband, who wasn't completely sold on Disney, had a blast! As soon as we returned home I started thinking and planning our next trip!

I have a good friend who has been going to Disney World at least once a year (usually more) since she was a child. Her parents are DVC members and they love it. We started talking about doing a trip with our families for 2011. A lady at church owns a time share and offered us a room at any resort we wanted for a week. Of course, the first thing we looked at was if they had one in Orlando. Magically, they had one that was right in the heart of Disney World! We booked the trip and were able to go again in March. This time we would be celebrating our son's 3rd birthday and my friend's daughter's 4th birthday - so magical!

We had such a great time and before we even left Disney, I was already planning our next trip in my head. We are planning on going again in March, as we love the time of year with Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival and we love celebrating our son's birthday at Disney - there is just nothing else like it!

The title of my blog comes from my first trip as an adult to Disney World in 2010 - as soon as I saw the first sign, I was bitten by the Disney bug! I hope you will enjoy going along with me as I plan our next trip (and each one after that!) and as I share tips and fun things about what I have learned so far in my Disney planning and trips. Who knows . . . maybe you will be Bit by the Disney Bug too :)

  1. What a lucky little boy to be able to party with Mickey for his birthday! I have a feeling my little boy will be spending either his 3rd (2012) or 4th (2013) birthday at Disney, as his birthday is in the beginning of January and that's our favorite time of year to go.

    Looking forward to your next post :-)
