Hello and welcome to Lissy Through the Looking Glass, my Disney Lifestyle Blog!
My name is Melissa, but I’m better known around the internet as Lissy.
I’m 29 years old, I live in Chicago, and during the day, I work as a vet tech at an animal hospital.
At night (ok, all hours of the day), I’m a Disney obsessed nerd.
My love for Disney started probably from the moment I was born. My parents bought me Disney videos, toys, games, and when I was 3 years old, I went on my first trip to a Disney park when my family drove us cross country to Disneyland.
Since then, I have been to Disney World Resort 8 times, and Disneyland/California Adventure an additional 5 times. If I lived closer, or had endless finances, trust me – it would be much more, and include the international parks as well! We’ve also been to Aulani, the Disney resort in Hawaii, 2 times. I’ve planned multiple Disney trips for my sister and I all on my own, and I’m also a former Cast Member at the Disney Store!
I think it’s safe to say that when it comes to Disney, I know my stuff!
So, what is this whole blog about?
Disney has always been my happy place. However, I know that it can be expensive, or it may seem like planning a Disney trip is totally overwhelming and confusing. That isn’t the case at all! 90% of this blog will be Disney related tips and tricks, including:
- Ideas on how to save BIG BUCKS on Disney vacations
- Reviews of restaurants, rides, parks, and shows
- Insider tips and tricks to avoid lines and take the stress out of navigating Disney parks!
- Opinions, secrets, and hacks from a Disney expert on how to make your vacation 1000% more magical!
- Disney inspired crafts, recipes, and product reviews
All in all, I want to bring the magic of Disney to YOU. Whether that’s by providing little tips on how to save money at Disney resorts, reviews of new products or Disney services, or simple how-to guides on how to plan a vacation, my goal is to help YOU understand Disney just a little bit better!
What Else Can I Find Here?
Believe it or not, I DO think about other things BESIDES Disney. In fact, I LOVE to travel, and that doesn’t always involve Disney! You can find the following types of posts on my blog as well:
