Word of Mouse

Welcome to Word of Mouse!

If you found this blog, you must be a Disney fan, and we are too! Though neither of started out that way growing up. In this post we want to share who we are, how we developed our passion for all things Disney, and what to expect from Word of Mouse.

Who We Are

Sassagoula Boat Ride
Sassagoula River Cruise – Port Orleans French Quarter

My name is Jennifer and my first trip to Walt Disney World was in 2001 when I was 19 years old. It was exciting to finally be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth! I didn’t know much about the parks, but the thought of seeing Cinderella Castle in person made me smile. Spoiler alert – when I rounded the corner on Main Street and saw the castle for the first time, I cried.

I have my husband Chad – the other author of this blog – to thank. It was his family that I went with on this magical first trip. Chad’s first trip to Walt Disney World was when he was five years old, but he didn’t go again until our trip with his family in 2001. We stayed offsite at what was then called the Downtown Disney Resort Area Hotels. Though we now prefer to stay onsite, we are glad to have the offsite experience.

One Little Spark

Something about that trip stuck with us, and in 2005 we honeymooned at Walt Disney  World. It was this trip that sparked our love. Maybe it was Port Orleans French Quarter (still our favorite resort today), maybe it was the food (but definitely not Spoodles – more about that in a future post), or maybe it was Disney magic. Whatever the reason, we have vacationed in Walt Disney World nearly every year since. In that time, we have grown to love the parks, the planning, the food, and Walt Disney himself.

Why We Are Writing

Partners Statue – Magic Kingdom

Our goal with this blog is to share our love for all things Disney – from our experiences in the parks and resorts to Disney news. We’ll talk about our favorite things (and least favorite), planning tips, mistakes we’ve made and learned from, with a little history thrown in. In the end we hope to never lose sight of one thing, it was all started by Walt Disney and a mouse.
