I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times.I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets.
