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 Arrival

It was late morning. I woke up from a refreshing nap in the car when my mom spoke the most joyful words I had heard all day, “We’re at Disney World!” I looked out the window and sure enough, there were the gates, eager to let our “Minnie-van” enter.  I screamed with excitement as we passed the signs. Let me explain. I am NDK#1, and I was going with my family to a Social Media Moms conference. More importantly, it was in Disney World. Now back to the story.

We arrived at Disney’s Polynesian Resort and went to the Hospitality Suite. We were given many gifts, and then we saw three of Mom’s closest friends, who were also NDMs. First there was Ms. Traci (NDM#118). She was very friendly and full of hugs. Then there was Ms. Jackie (NDM#30). I could tell that she was lots of fun. There was also Ms. Jennifer (NDM#164), and I liked her right away.

After that we checked in at the front counter for our room and left for the Magic Kingdom with my neurotic mom and the other giggling NDMs. I could tell it would be a good trip.
