About
We are parents with two young kids who have fallen in love with Walt Disney World and all things Disney and try to travel there as often as we can. We often hear friends and family say that Disney is only for kids, but we disagree. We hope to guide families on ways to experience and enjoy Disney destinations either with their kids or without kids. Disney can be amazing as a couples only destination as well! Join us as we take you through the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Vacation Club, and all of the Disney resort hotels. Join us at www.addictedtothemouse.com for more travel planning advice.
