How I came to start – PREP038

Two years ago, my husband asked what I wanted to do for Mother's Day and I said I wanted to launch a Disney World website.

In this podcast, I talk about how I came to finally start this site after years of wanting to do it.

These are notes from this episode. There's much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Quick tip of the day

Although it sounds cliche, following your passion is ultimately what will lead you to do what you're best at and will be much less of a struggle than doing things you shouldn't be doing.

Congratulations on the 2 yr mark of a wonderful, and educational, website Shannon!!

I’m so glad you started this awesome site! You have an amazing knack for teaching people how to do Disney World, thoroughly, but with ease. You inspire me!


So glad and thankful you did start this site! Congrats on 2 years 🙂


Great podcast! Very inspirational. I feel like i’ve never really had a passion for any one thing and I really wish I could finally figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Perhaps I should look into getting a life coach. Ive never really thought about that but it seems like it could be really helpful.

I really enjoy listening to your podcasts. I love that I can listen while going about my day. You are very natural and at ease which makes you feel like you are listening to a friend share their experiences. Does Disney have a satelight channel for planning? You would be a great fit!
