I'm Ashley, a Disneyphile who lives in the Orlando area and gets to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth pretty much any time I feel like it. I used to work for the Walt Disney Company at Buena Vista Construction Company. I was also a Kindergarten teacher before becoming Mommy to Will. He's my best bud and my favorite park hopping pal.
My experience in the parks means I have a good idea of what to wear to stay comfortable in Florida's ever-changing weather. Dressing For Disney is where I show you what I'm wearing, when I visit.
Lilly Pulitzer is one of my favorite brands, so you'll see a lot of that on these pages! I'll also provide links to sales, keep you up to date on the goings-on in the parks, and even sprinkle in some Disney fun facts or history here and there.
Besides Disney, I like to read, cook, cheer on the Florida Gators, and travel. I married my sweetheart John in May 2015; we actually met in Epcot, got engaged at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and honeymooned on the Disney Fantasy, so Walt Disney World is special to us (more so to me; John tolerates it very well on my behalf). We celebrated our first year of marriage with a monthly Epcotiversary. Our son, William John, was born in August of 2016.
Some of my favorite Disney things are:
- citrus swirls
- Bloody Marys from the Dawa Bar at Disney's Animal Kingdom
- Donald F. Duck
- Disney history
- sitting outside at the Hollywood Brown Derby lounge at Disney's Hollywood Studios
- calling Disney's Hollywood Studios MGM. Always, MGM.
- Mizner's at the Grand Floridian
- strolling the World Showcase at Epcot
Some of my favorite attractions from each park are:
-Magic Kingdom: the Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Space Mountain, WEDWay Peoplemover, WDW Railroad
-MGM: One Man's Dream, Tower of Terror, The Great Movie Ride (RIP!!)
- Epcot: Spaceship Earth, Rose and Crown Pub ;)
-Animal Kingdom: Kilamanjaro Safari, Maharaja Jungle Trek, Expedition Everest
