Paying the Magic Forward

Today is December 1 and we are fully in the midst of the Holiday Season. Hustle, bustle, shopping, card-writing, celebrating….it’s a busy, sometimes stressful, yet magical time of the year!

It’s also the time of the year when The Affordable Mouse does some celebrating too! This month we are SEVEN years old! It’s hard to believe that we have enjoyed seven years of helping thousands realize their dream of a Disney vacation….what an honor and we are truly thankful for your support! :)

As has been the custom for the past 5 years, I always take this month to celebrate by “paying it forward” and I hope you will help me do that. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to share this love and passion that I have for Disney with so many, and even more blessed to have had the honor to help my wonderful clients over the years create magical memories with their own families.

The best way that I know to celebrate is to give back.
