I am a huge Disney fan and have been going since before I could walk. I love going every year and always trying at least one new thing! Going to Disney is always a great girl’s only trip for my Mom and I, and we love every minute of it!
I am also an avid runner and have done several half marathons and am training for a full, I will be doing the Expedition Everest Challenge in May and the Dopey Challenge in January. I will also be making my first trip to Disneyland in 2014 for the Dumbo Challenge and to get the Coast to Coast Medal. I can’t wait until I move to Florida so that I can do all the Run Disney events at WDW!
Whenever someone mentions Disney to me it immediately puts a smile on my face and I could talk with them about it for hours! When I am not running or dreaming of Disney, I am working on my degree in nursing (Although completing that goal means I can move to Florida, so it still involves Disney!)


Lucinda is a work-at-home mother of five, with a strong passion for family, photography and Disney. She incorporates her loves into her Disney fan blog, Without a Care in the World and likes meeting other Disney bloggers through it. As a WDW local, she enjoys park adventures on a regular basis.



Teri Scavette lives in Runnemede NJ. She and her husband, Dan, own and operate a window treatment business. Teri is a vereran of four Disney cruises and over 70 trips to WDW. “I so look forward to each trip more than the last. Why do I love Disney?

Quite simply…Being there and making so many happy treasured memories with my family just makes my heart smile!”


Melissa Rhodes is a stay at home mom to two Disney addicts, one princess and one pirate. She is also a Disney Vacation Specialist with Magical Memories Travel, where she helps other families plan the Disney magic that she loves experiencing with her own family. Melissa made her first visit to Disney in 1978 and has made more than 40 trips since.

Melissa would love to help you plan your next Disney vacation, and you can reach her at Magical Memories Travel at 1-888-908-7718 , ext 122.  When she is not dreaming about Disney, Melissa can be found at Mickey By Mel.


By profession Melissa is a 9th grade World History teacher, but by nature she is a lover of all things Disney. She has always been a bit of a bookworm and has believed in fairytales since she was a little girl. (Her favorite heroine and princess is Belle.)

When she isn’t teaching, snapping pictures to post on Picturing Disney on Facebook, updating her photoblog Picturing Disney, or prancing around Disney Parks like a kid, she is lives her life filled with love, laughter, and happily ever after in New York with her husband and their adorable dog.



  1. The readers want to see Amanda!!!!! I heard that she is the amazing photographer and she is a talented writer. We want Amanda!!!!!!

  2. Awww….thanks for the link to my site. So sweet!! Hugs!

  3. I was so excited to see that one of your writers did the Disney College Program!! I am a Disney College Program alum myself! In my year spent at Disney, I worked quick food and beverage in Animal Kingdom, attractions at Downtown Disney’s Disney Quest and at the Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom! I’m so glad I found your blog. I’ve been homesick for Disney for months now!! I look forward to reading you stories, tips and adventures!

    • Hey, would you like to do some writing?! I have found that to help ease my “homesickness” at least for a while. If you are interested, we would love to have an insiders point of view. Not giving away secrets, but just stuff cast members go through, how hard you worked, etc. I envision a ton of articles that could be done on all sorts of CM experiences.
      Thanks for reading!

    Hi Amanda,
    My name is Jamie Schroeder and you gave me your contact info during my recent trip to Disney because you took pictures of my engagement in front of the magic kingdom! I was hoping to see some of the memories you captured; I tried emailing you But it just sent the email back to me :( I am hoping that you still have some of those pictures! Let me know! Thanks sooo much!

    • Jamie!! I am so glad you contacted me. (My handwriting probably stunk that night- I was in a huge hurry to get it to you. I have a facebook group too- the link is on the home page here, or just look up Mouze Kateerz. I had no plans to ever run the photos without your permission. However, :), I would LOVE to do a story about “your love story” if you would like that, but if not, I’ll be happy to e-mail you the photos for your personal use. It was honestly one of the coolest things I have ever seen at WDW, and I’ve seen some emotional stuff on vacation. My 9th grade daughter said the next day,”If I don’t get proposed to in front of the castle, the whole deal may be off.” E-mail me!!
