I haven’t always been **borderline obsessed** with Disney. I have over a decade of experience in various doctors offices and hospitals running statistical analysis to create efficiency. Shortly after taking time off to be a stay-at-home mom, my husband and I found ourselves on our first family trip to Disney World when our kids were 9 months and 2 years old. It was then that I learned Disney isn’t just magical, it’s logistical! So, now I’ve taken all my analysis—combined it with efficiency, organization, and Disney-like superior customer service—and help families create a Disney vacation your family will always happily remember.
