Disney DIY Author - Meet Mariah

Meet Mariah.

My first Disney experience happened when I was a teenager. My mom’s dream had always been to go to Disney World and as she got closer to turning 50, I knew I wanted to make it happen. So I did. And my mom got to visit Disney World the Thanksgiving before she celebrated her 50th birthday.

Since then, many memories in my life are associated with the most magical place on Earth. Before my younger sister’s unexpected passing when she was 23, we had the opportunity to visit Disney World again with my mom. And we also took a trip to Orlando with my dad, stepmom, and brother. They are all memories that I cherish.

So when my husband proposed to me (and I accepted), I was thrilled when he suggested we go to Disney World for our honeymoon. It’s my most recent memory and it was amazing. My husband and I are now counting down to when we can take our children to experience the magic.

Until then I am working to bring the Disney magic into our home one project at a time!

As an avid Disney lover and an AP (Annual Passholder) to Disneyland for many years, I love the magic and wonder that Disney provides.

Not only have I visited Disneyland many times since I was a small child – thanks to the love my dad had for Disneyland passed down to him by his dad – but my husband also proposed to me there as well on our 4-year dating anniversary. Talk about a magical moment, right? So when we had kids we knew we wanted to keep that magic alive and share with them the wonderful world of Disney.

From movies, to crafts, to playing with our food to create Disney classics at home, I’ve not only been able to recreate great family moments I’ve had with Disney but make new ones as well.
