A Vacation Spot For My Family – A Month of Thanks

My name Jill Laperle. My first trip to Disney was way back in 1978. I still remember the first glimpse of the Magic Kingdom with my parents. I even still have some of those unused original tickets buried in a box. I met and married my Prince Charming (Jeff) and we have 2 Princes (Riley and Aidan). Mickey and Minnie were kind enough to pop in at our wedding (thanks to our parents) and we had an amazing Disney honeymoon. Both of the boys had their first haircuts at the Main Street Barber Shop when they were a year old. In 2009 we became proud DVC owners at Baylake Tower. I have graduated from the College of Disney Knowledge and keep up with that training just to help people plan trips. I made it to the second round for Moms Panel after years of applying. I will keep trying knowing one of these years it will be my turn. I was a beta tester for Disney InsidEARS. I may have a small obsession with Disney Dooney and Harvey Seatbelt bags. I also love collecting Disney iPhone cases, Chamilia beads and other jewelry finds. I am always showing a Disney Side in a small way. Anything else you would like to know just ask. NDM #117


 

As part of our “A Month of Thanks” celebration, we asked our readers and contributors to share their stories about why they are thankful for Disney. Here is just one of those submitted. If you would like to share why you are thankful for Disney, please see this article or contact Maria (NDM 130)


Just a little note to say what I am thankful for in the Disney community. There is so much good in this community it was hard to pick one thing. Our family vacations stand out in the top spot for me.

We are busy working parents and with all that goes on in life it sometimes can get the better of you and stopping to enjoy your family can be neglected.

People ask me why I love going to Disney and for me it is simple. The bubble that is Walt Disney World lets me focus solely on the family we have made. We tend to be able to shut out the normal everyday and act silly, ride rides and just be kids with our kids.
It isn’t much, but these trips really help to bring my family together.
