INNER MOUSE 27 – LUCK OF THE MOUSE

JeniLynn Knopp (234 Posts)

JeniLynn was born and raised in South Florida. Being so close to Walt Disney World, she grew up regularly visiting the Mouse and developed a fascination with the creativity of Disney Parks. Noticing that her happiest moments seemed to always take place in Walt Disney World, JeniLynn began trying to recreate the magic of Disney in her everyday life beginning in her pre-teen years. Adulthood, sixteen years of marriage, and three children later, JeniLynn continues to lead a Disney Driven Life and diligently works to pass her love for Disney on to her husband and children. She has blogged for Touring Plans and been a contributing writer for The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World, and she currently co-hosts Orlando Attractions Magazine: The Show; however, her primary focus has always been with the community that has grown around her own site, The Disney Driven Life. Through these venues JeniLynn strives to help other Disney fans stay connected to the brand that has served as a keystone in her family’s life.


The Disney Driven Life brings you another episode of inner mouse. In this week’s show, Scott, John, and JL discuss luck and how to create a bit of your own during your Disney-esque life.  Sharing a few stories about just plain dumb Disney luck, Team inner mouse leaves no stone unturned as they also give some tips on how to position oneself a little better for pixie dust to fall on you and yours.  Leave a comment below and tell us which about any moments when you got lucky in a Disney way.

Today’s show notes are brought to you by Jablecki–the catch-all word when there simply aren’t any that quite fit your verbal needs.

Contributed by: JL Knopp (NDM#1) JL is the creator of The Disney Driven Life. She is also a blogger for Savvy Auntie and Touring Plans as well as a contributing writer for The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.

    Engaging with the cast members makes such a big difference, even if you don’t get any goodies, but on our last vacation we did. My 15 year old daughter was DYING to get a henna tattoo. We went to Morrocco to the Art of Henna on a very cold December night. My daughter choose her design and the artist Jasamine started working. We asked about the meaning of the art and she seemed so pleased to talk about it. She told us that she had recently gone home to Morroccco for her sister’s wedding and that she did henna for all the wedding party. As she talked she would say “well, I should be finished, but I’ll do a little more…” My daughter ended up with the most beautful and elaborate design! It is something that she will never forget!
