Erin is a lifelong Disney fanatic who grew up less than 20 minutes from Disneyland in California. Armed with an annual pass for many years, Erin enjoyed visiting the Park as often as possible, developing an addiction to collecting anything related to Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Villains, and of course Winnie the Pooh. In 2009, Erin also developed quite a fondness for Tokyo DisneySEA’s Duffy the Disney Bear, who is quickly overtaking Winnie the Pooh in display space!
After moving away from Southern California, Erin continued to feed her Disney obsession by visiting Disneyland as often as possible and showcasing her art and collectibles in her home, which was often known as “The Disney Museum” by neighbors and friends.
In 2009 Erin moved to Asia and has fulfilled her dream of visiting the international Disney Parks on a regular basis. Her “home” parks are now Hong Kong Disneyland and the Tokyo Disney Resort. She’s visited Disneyland Paris twice so far and finished up a RTW Disney trip that took her to every Disney Theme Park during September 2010. Somehow, she managed to almost top that by recently visiting Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Disneyland (CA) within the span of three days — even hitting Tokyo and DCA on the same day! Since Erin travels to cover many Disney events, she maintains annual passes to Disneyland, WDW, Tokyo Disney, and Hong Kong, and visits the parks in Asia and Disneyland in California 4-5 times per year — especially during seasonal and special collectible events.
Erin is a full-time freelance travel and food writer/photographer who has traveled to 40 countries to date. She is able to combine her passion for Disney with her work and writes a Disney Theme Parks column on Examiner.com. She recently created this blog to share her love of all things Disney with others and to provide a platform to display the tens of thousands of photos she has taken from various Disney events and countless theme park visits.
