About Me

Hi Friends! I’m Melissa.

I’m from Louisville, Kentucky. I was born and raised in Louisville and it’s also where I attended college at the University of Louisville. I am married to my wonderful husband Kevin and we have one daughter (Marley, 2). We are also proud dog parents to our 4 year old golden retriever, Cooper, who is our world.

In 2016 my husband and I made a trip to Walt Disney World and fell in love with it. I had been a few times before, but my husband had not. We quickly became obsessed and made a second solo trip in 2018. In 2019, I developed a Disney Instagram account under the name @magicallymarley to help document my daughter’s development into the magical world of Disney. I quickly learned that I loved discussing all things Disney and fell in love with the community.

I decided to start this blog in hopes to help people with their own Disney trips and hopefully to influence them with my honest reviews on various topics. On this blog you will find plenty of Walt Disney World content including: reviews of food, resorts, rides, shows, etc, tips and tricks for your trip, planning guides and helpful information to keep in mind. As well as, snippets of my chaotic life, favorite products, a glimpse of life with a toddler (good and bad), and the struggles of being an entrepreneur’s wife.

I love all desserts, spending time with my family, sports (football, baseball, and basketball), amazon prime, finding good deals on toddler items, Hocus Pocus, Elf, the Harry Potter series, beachbody workouts, and going to Disney.
