About the Author

Hello, my name is Jeff Holmes, my wife and I were married ten years ago. We have two amazing little boys that inspire our lives and share the magical love of Walt Disney and his imagination! I enjoy writing and helping others make those magical decisions that leave a mark on all of our lives, especially children. We have been to Disney World on many occasions, and we have enjoyed visits at all times of the year! I was born and raised in a little town in Southern Indiana, and when the weather starts to get too cold, we know it's time for a week of warm magic in Florida with our famous pals from the Walt Disney World Resort.

My wife Erika and I had the pleasure of enjoying our honeymoon at the Walt Disney World Resort and it has become our favorite destination! Much like other families, our children watched all the wonderful Disney classics from my favorite Beauty and The Beast to Winnie The Pooh. Having that connection with our children and just being a kid at heart, is what the very name of Disney stands for. Everyday adventures that are inspired from the books and stories of the everlasting tales from the Disney Legacy makes all of our imagination grow. There is nothing like sitting around the couch in the company of your family and enjoying a Disney movie night. I can remember when I was a young child growing up, and my family would all gather around on Sunday evening to watch The Wonderful World of Disney presentation. We would finish up supper, snuggle up on the couch, and eat our favorite popcorn as the movies came alive in front of our very eyes. Those traditions. among others, I still follow even today.

Once we bring our children to Walt Disney World and they see the magic come out of the pages of the bedtime stories we once read to them, they become a Disney fan for the rest of their life. As a child myself, my parents were never able to take me to the happiest place on earth. Growing up we managed to get most Disney films on VHS and I kept each one to have for my children. Of course, when I was old enough to have children the new age of technology brought our classic favorites to DVD. I collect the movies new and old even today, and now even began to purchase the Blue Ray DVD's for even more magic! I am truly honored to share our experiences, hopes, and dreams with all my readers and look forward to the infinity and beyond!
