Amanda is a Disney veteran having first visited Disney World in 1979! She’s been back to Orlando many times since then including her honeymoon, family holidays and multi-generational trips with extended family. Amanda has stayed at most of the on-site Disney and Universal hotels and eaten in pretty much all of the restaurants so she has lots of personal experiences to share. As well as Orlando, Amanda has visited Disneyland California and Universal Hollywood, taken several Disney Cruises and is a regular visitor to Disneyland Paris.
