I wanted to take a moment to tell you a little about me and to welcome you to Explore With Catherine.
I was born and raised in Rochester, NY, before relocating to Houston a few years ago with my husband and 2 boys. There may not be many Princess dresses or tiaras hanging around my house, but we have PLENTY of Marvel to make up for it.
My First Trip
Growing up, I had 3 loves: Bowling, Backstreet Boys, and Disney.
My very first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1988, when I was just 6 years old.
After returning home, I spent months listening to the Baroque Hoedown (Electrical Parade) and “Mickey and Minnie On A Moonlit Night”. To this day I’m convinced that no one remembers remembers this song but me.
Although I was only able to go to Walt Disney World once during my childhood, it’s always held a special place in my heart.
So, when my boys were little, I started dreaming about giving them the same fond memories that I have.
What I didn’t know was that I was also starting my journey to a new career. A career where I get to talk Disney to anyone who is willing to listen.
Explore With Catherine
Explore With Catherine is a culmination of the years spent learning the ins and outs of Disney, both for my own vacations and now for helping others.
What at first seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take my kids on a Disney Vacation has turned into something much more than I ever expected.
Since starting my journey, I have been fortunate enough to find a way to go back a few more times, with more trips being added in the future. There’s no stopping us now…
