Behind the Blog
Truthfully, Treasured Family Travels started with me writing about all our adventures. I’m a miles and point enthusiast, so we travel all over the world. However, I found I am most passionate about Disney.
Would you believe I even collected Disney princess books before I was married and had any kids? I’m that much of a Disney nerd!
I love going there, I love the research, and I love talking to people about Disney. This led me to concentrate on just writing about Disney World (it’s a 2 hour flight from my home in Cleveland). But, I now have been to Disneyland Paris three times, so I hope to add content around that Disneyland as well.
I write about what people need to know for a Disney World vacation. One of the first things people ask is, ‘Where to Stay?’. So, I have an entire section devoted to either staying at a Disney World resort or at an offsite hotel.
The most common question I get revolves around using Genie Plus at Disney World. This is why I have so many posts related to how to use Genie Plus at all the different parks, plus how to buy it, when to use it, and what to know about it.
Next, is the rides. Everyone wants to know what rides are the best right? This is especially true depending on who you are travelling with. If this is a family with babies or toddlers, your day is going to look quite different than going with others that are older than 10 and can experience the most intense attractions.
As I mentioned above, I live in Cleveland. Therefore, I need to travel to Orlando just like most people do. Plus, I need somewhere to stay. This gives me a unique advantage because I am not a Disney blogger that lives next door and can just go there anytime.
Yes, I do have a Disney World annual pass, but I pay for hotels and sometimes transportation just like the average family. This gives me insight into the pros and cons of staying onsite vs offsite, how it affects planning your stay and your budget.
Disney World is always evolving, and so is my content. I update regularly to ensure you have the latest info.
Plus, as big changes happen (such as a new ride or changes to Genie Plus), it gives me a reason to visit Orlando again and make use of my annual pass!
Absolutely! Your ideas and requests inspire me. Feel free to drop a suggestion anytime. I personally read through all comments given and respond to emails through my contact page.

Content Creation and Authenticity
I cross-reference with official sources and use my personal experiences to ensure you get the real deal.
I mix in personal anecdotes and fun facts to keep my articles informative yet relatable. Plus, I write as if I am talking to a friend. I want the reader to really feel my passion for Disney World and get excited as well.
I’m always researching, attending travel events, and, of course, traveling! Following Disney Parks’ Facebook page as well as the Disney World annual pass holders Facebook Page and the corresponding Instagram accounts give me a heads up on what’s coming as well. I’m also excited to attend next years D23 conference (that’s the official Disney Fan Club… lol…yes, they have one!).
