Shane grew up in a small town called Snellville, Georgia. He can’t really place a finger on why he’s such a huge Disney fan- it’s just always been there, starting with the first film he ever saw in theaters being Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Shane’s family went to Walt Disney World almost every year, but his fascination definitely peaked when he met a lighting Imagineer on a Disney Cruise.
Seven years later, Shane finally moved down to the Magic as soon as he graduated from high school. He has been living in Orlando since the summer of 2009 and loves every second of it. He also writes the “Tales from the Bench” blog for Studios Central and is a frequent contributor and personality on Touring Plans’ mobile application, Lines.
Shane is known in the parks for his signature red hat and favorite bench in Disney Hollywood Studios.
