Magical Blogorail Peach: This Is Me!

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Peach. Enjoy the ride as we introduce ourselves, our blogs and share our inspirations for starting our blogs.

Hello everyone! I am SO excited to now be a part of the wonderful group of bloggers that make up the Magical Blogorail! Since the Peach loop is brand new, please let me introduce you to myself and Disney in Our Blood. I am Christina and
have moved to Florida just a few months ago (about 2 1/2 hours away from WDW) with my awesome husband of soon-to-be 5 years, Aaron, and our gorgeous 3 year-old-daughter, Ashlyn.

from our last trip just a couple of weeks ago

I was born and raised in California in a very Disney family. My dad grew up with going to Disneyland and loves everything Disney and passed that love to my mom and, when I came along, myself. When I hit 22, I moved across country (long story), met Aaron, moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (thank you, Navy) and had our daughter. I won't bore you with our whole story, but we made many trips from GTMO to Florida and that equates into lots of Walt Disney World trips. Ashlyn's first trip (actually, my first trip to WDW too... Aaron went once when he was a kid and didn't really remember it) was when she was 2 months old.

from our first trip in November 2008

It is hard to really explain why I am so passionate about Disney and why I started this blog. I could talk about how I was pretty much born to love Disney thanks to my dad, how Walt Disney was such a smart, talented, persistent, inspiring person, or how it's always a thrill to see my daughter give her favorite character a huge hug and a kiss. It is all that and so much more. It's almost like a tradition being passed down because now my husband and daughter love Disney. Almost like Disney is in our blood (and now the blog name makes sense haha). So I started this blog to share my love with others, give ideas for new things to do at WDW or how to keep the magic alive at home, and to meet other wonderful people who share the same passion I do. :) So far the ride has been a blast and I'm very happy to add the Magical Blogorail as another chapter to this story.
