DDL Specialty – Disney with Allergies, Disney with Young Children

Growing up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Aleisha has never let distance stop her from enjoying Walt Disney World vacations. From an early age, whether it be on a family vacation or tagging along with a friend on her vacation, she fell in love with the magic and the joy that Disney brought.  Now making her own memories as a DVC member with a Star Wars obsessed little boy, she tries to capture the same magical feelings into every day life. She has quickly established a reputation with friends, relatives and coworkers as a real-life Belle. Always with a book in her hand and available to help others plan their magical Disney vacations.

Beyond Disney, Aleisha is a lover of all genres of music; craves a good concert from time to time, considers her food allergies a blessing rather than a curse and can be seen at the good old hockey game during the NHL season.

Letty has loved all things Disney since she was child. Her first visit to the world was back in 1978. Since then she has returned as a spring break college student; as a young woman traveling with her boyfriend (now husband); and her last visit as a wife and mother of twin girls. Every trip was magical. Keeping her Disney fix between visits, she immerses herself researching all she can about the Disney Company. She reads about resort operations, movie profits, cruise lines, theatrical productions, merchandise, and global operations. She looks forward to sharing her research about this company that has created magic for generations.

Disney has been a part of Lucinda’s life for as long as she can remember.  In the winter of 1975, her parents surprised Lucinda & her sisters with their first real family vacation to Walt Disney World. There was no Epcot then and the area around the Magic Kingdom was fairly bare. It was the trip of a lifetime though and according to Lucinda, “we had the most fabulous fun there.”

Lucinda has vacationed almost exclusively at WDW with her family as an adult and in the last couple years, picked up her family to move to Cinderella’s backyard with her family. She is very happy to be a Disney local, at last.

Growing up as a child, Marc watched Disney animated movies. But it wasn’t until his first visit to Walt Disney World as a young adult, that he fell in love with Disney. Since then the love has spread from just the parks and TV & movies to how he visits (current Passholder and DVC Member), to running (runDisney), and to Broadway (Lion King, Mary Poppins, Newsies, Aladdin, etc.)  The biggest impact Disney has had on Marc is the people it has brought into his life & friendships he treasures, his O’hana.

DDL Speciality – Scrapbooks

Mary Beth is a Canadian Disney mom to two Neurotic Disney Kids and a wife to her husband who still doesn’t “get it” when she talks about Disney. Until a couple years ago, she assumed she was the only person in the world who thought about Walt Disney World every day and night. Needless to say she was pleasantly surprised when she found the on-line community of Neurotic Disney People.

Her other passion outside of Disney is scrapbooking, and truly doesn’t feel life is complete unless she has a Disney trip album to work on. She has been scrapbooking for over 15 years and belongs to various scrapbooking forums as well.

Her secret wish is to be Tinkerbell as she flies out of Cinderella’s Castle during Wishes, and her favorite food item at WDW is the corn bread at the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. When resting at WDW you can find her resting by the pool at Port Orleans French Quarter. Mary Beth’s favorite park is the Magic Kingdom as it is the first one she ever visited and is the one with the most special memories!

Sherri grew up in Beckley, West Virginia watching “Wonderful World of Disney” every Sunday night.

Later, she and Mark, NDD#102, met and married and only afterwards realized that they were both huge fans of the Disney brand. Since discovering that they are “Disney people” Sherri and her husband have made yearly trips to Walt Disney World, while raising their two children to believe that wishes can come true. While at work, she enjoys being referred to as the “Disney guru.”
