Thanks for visiting my site! I am Tabitha Robinson, and I am a Disney addict. My first trip was in 2002 as a (barely) adult, and I fell in love. Before my trip I bought the Birnbaum’s guide and planned everything I wanted to do, read the book cover to cover, highlighted attractions I wanted to experience and planned details down to what I wanted to snack on.  I fully expected it to be my first and once in a lifetime trip and tried to cram in everything I could (including those parks on the other side of town!).  I am happy to say it was not my only trip. I have been over 25 times since. I do something Disney related every day. I’m spending time on the DIS (username pirategirl007; I’m a regular on Theme Park Attractions and Strategies), answering questions on the Touring Plans Lines chat room (also username pirategirl007), reading blogs or park news, checking for new Disney deals  or listening to Disney music. I wanted to be able to share some of the tidbits of Disney-ease that I have picked up over the years in all my research and park visits. I hope that it will help someone else plan their trip and fall in love with Disney Parks in the way that I have.

I am married to a wonderful Disney loving husband, Matthew. He took trips as a kid but never a full Disney experience until we were together. On the way home from our first on property trip, staying at Coronado Springs resort with the dining plan, he asked when we could go back. I knew he was hooked and it was one of many signs that he was ‘the one’. We have two wonderful children: Abigail, 11, and Jeremiah, 8. Both are Disney Parks fans, but not to the extent we are. They like the parks but really love the extra experiences and minor attractions like Pirate’s League, Pirate Adventure Cruises, Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure and Wilderness Explorer’s Adventure at Animal Kingdom.

In addition to being a Disney fan I am also a travel agent and I specialize in Disney vacations. The job is far from luxurious. It’s not Mickey Bars and pixie dust raining down on me all the time, but most days I feel like I’m living a dream. I get to talk Disney to people who are excited about planning trips, and I make a living doing it! I also sell other vacation destinations and cruises and love to plan (and go on) those trips. In 2013 I left my career in the corporate world to be a travel agent full time and am looking  forward to many more years in my dream job.
