Welcome! I want to be your Disney Vacation Planner; so let me introduce myself and tell of my Disney background.
My name is Crystal LeMoine, and I live in Houston, TX. I was born and raised here, and only moved away when my husband was in the Navy. I graduated from the University of Houston, becoming certified as an elementary school teacher. I taught 1st grade for 7 years, and I am now in my 8th year of homeschooling my 2 children. I have a 17 year-old daughter, who will be graduating high school this year, and I have a 12 year-old son in 7th grade. I have been married to my husband for 20 years. We just celebrated by sailing 4 nights on the Disney Wonder.
I never made it to Walt Disney World as a child, but we finally made it there with my almost 4 year old daughter in March of 2000. That’s when I fell in love! It wasn’t until June 2005, once I had my son and he was now almost 4, that we made it back. It then became a yearly goal to make it to Disney.
I have taken trips to Walt Disney World 10 times, and I have 2 trips planned so far for 2014. I have stayed at All Star Movies, Pop Century, All Star Music, Old Key West, and Port Orleans French Quarter. I will be staying at Coronado Springs in February and Animal Kingdom Lodge in May/June. I have tried almost every restaurant at the parks and resorts, and I can’t wait to try some of the new ones.
I have taken 3 trips to Disneyland, and I have plans to be back in 2015. I have stayed at Good Neighbor hotels within walking distance to the parks. I loved discovering all the differences between Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
I have now completed 3 cruises with Disney. I have taken a 3-night Disney Dream cruise, 6-night Disney Magic cruise, and a 4-night Disney Wonder cruise. Visiting Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, has been my favorite port.
I also became a runner, after participating in the runDisney Princess Half Marathon in 2012. I went on to run the Disneyland Half that September, and I earned my Coast to Coast medal. I am going this February to run in the inaugural Glass Slipper Challenge at the Princess Half Marathon weekend, running the 10K and Half in the same weekend.
I love all things Disney, and I love planning my own trips and can’t wait to help you plan your own magical Disney vacation!
