Lisa fell in love with Walt Disney World Resort as an impressionable 12 year old girl, and it’s been one of the loves of her life ever since! Celebrating countless memories with her husband and two daughters there, she is a firm believer that half the fun of a WDW vacation, is planning a WDW vacation! Being the go-to person for family and friends planning a trip of their own has turned her personal hobby, into a growing passion! Few things bring her more joy than seeing the magic of Walt Disney World Resort unfold in the eyes of those that she helped along the way. Lisa resides in beautiful Cape Cod, MA and you can usually find her writing, taking pictures, day tripping with her family or hanging out at her local Starbucks. She can also be found on Twitter @lisaonthecape.
Kelly has been blessed to grow up local to the Disneyland Resort. She loves runDisney and sharing the magic with her 2 year old son. When not playing at the parks or working, Kelly enjoys her side business: The Short Shop and writing her blog: Navigating Life’s Joyful Challenges.
