About

Tell us about your Disney history, Keith...



My Disney family tree dates back to 1955. My mom and her brother were taken to Disneyland the year it opened, and they loved it so much they were taken almost every subsequent summer. Once they grew up and had their respective families, they each took their kids (my mom had two and my uncle had four) to Disneyland every year since we were born. As us kids got older Disney began to wear off for half of us. It stuck to me and two of my cousins like honey, however. Because of this, I have been to:


Disneyland every year since birth

Walt Disney World twice a year since 2005

Disneyland Paris

The Walt Disney Family Museum

Marceline, Missouri

I own an Annual Pass to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, DVC, D23 membership, Walt Disney Family Museum membership, a Disney Visa, and a Disneyland Paris annual pass (expired, sad face). One might surmise that I appreciate Disney. But above all else, I have great respect and admiration for the man himself, Walter Elias Disney.

I run one Disney race per year, usually in the fall. My other hobbies include writing, playing sports, going to the gym, reading, traveling to non-Disney places (gasp), and watching movies.

TDP's Mission

The Disney Project will focus on providing accurate information about the many different facets of the Disney company, with a solid emphasis on Walt Disney himself. As a lifelong fan and current Walt Disney Family Museum volunteer, it is my pleasure to share the genius of Walt Disney with anyone interested.

And as a fan and frequent parks visitor, I hope you enjoy the occasional trip report thrown in as well. Comments/suggestions for The Disney Project are always welcome.

Accuracy is Paramount

If at any time you spot a factual error, please send me an email: questions (at) thedisneyproject (dot) com. If you have a source to cite, even better! Please also email me if you ever have any questions or comments.


Thanks, and I hope you enjoy The Disney Project.
