Marc is from Upstate NY, where he lives as a single Dad with his thirteen year old son. Although Marc had seven trips to Walt Disney World as a child and young adult, his true passion for all things Disney did not ignite until 2007 when he brought his young son to Disney for his first trip. After seeing Walt Disney World through his young son’s eyes on that trip, he became forever hooked on Disney! Then in December 2008, Marc really drank the “Disney Kool-Aid” at Mousefest (a gathering of the Disney community in Walt Disney World) and he has never looked back since. Since 2010, Marc has been a member of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel. He enjoys answering guest’s questions and assisting them plan their Walt Disney World vacations. Marc will be sharing, with the Disney Driven Life Community, photo blogs of items at his home that remind him of Disney everyday as well as things that have special Disney memories to him. Marc proudly wears his NDD # 40 Badge!

On February 14th, 2011 I had the opportunity, as a D23 member, to attend the D23 Cars and Stars Event in New York City.  At this awesome event, there were two of the celebrities who voiced the new characters from the upcoming Pixar movie CARS 2.  Michael Caine (who voices the new master spy car Finn McMissile) and Emily Mortimer (who is the voice for the spy car Holley Shiftwell) were on hand that day to be interviewed about recording their voices for CARS 2.  This D23 Event was held during New York City’s 2011 Toy Fair so naturally CARS toys were featured at the event!  In fact, there will be over 300 new CARS toys coming out as a result of this new movie.

So for this blog article, I wanted to deviate from my photos of Disney items that I have in my home to give you the treat of seeing a highlight video that I put together of this fabulous D23 Cars and Stars Event.  The photos in the video are all ones that I took that day.  Make sure to take a close look at all the awesome new CARS related toys that are coming soon to a store near you!  Maybe you can apprehend a few of these new CARS toys to help you lead a Disney Driven Life at home every day!  So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
