Journey to FFL -- A Disney Goal.


I want to attend the Friends For Life Conference in 2012.  (Now might be a good time to mention that to Mr. Rose.  Hi ya!!!)

We've been playing this D Game for 6 years.  By the time next summer rolls around, it'll be 7. I've heard about FFL year after year...and year after year, I long to attend with my family.  I'm thinking 7 should be our LUCKY NUMBER!

Aside from the amazing conference, there's the whole VACATION portion of a trip like this.  I mean....HELLO???.....daughters, daughters everywhere over here....home of princesses over there!!!!!

A trip like this will take strategic planning for our family.  We'll need to save some cash, pack for diabetes, consider celiac, and decide what to do with the dog.  Details.  Lots of them.

And that's where my FB pal, Robyn comes in....


My name is Robyn and I reside in Woodstock, Ga with my husband, son, and many furry critters (and a few scaly ones).  It all started when my son was 3 and my sister took us with her family to Walt Disney World.  From that moment I was hooked.  I already had a love for Disney when I worked for the Disney Store in college.  However, it wasn't until that trip that I developed a deep passion.  Since then, my family has taken several trips a year.  I have made it my goal to learn as much as I can about traveling to the parks.  From budgeting, to dining reservations, to planning grand adventures for large parties with a multiple age range of children, I have experienced a lot.  I have even taken advantage of using the Disney Florist to decorate our room for my son's 7th birthday - such a wonderful treat!

Now I have been able to take that knowledge and passion, and become a Disney Destination Travel Planner.  I couldn't be more excited.  I have graduated from the College of Knowledge.  Constantly, I am reading and researching new and exciting ways to take advantage of the most MAGICAL PLACE ON EARTH!  I love to be involved with others as they plan their Disney trips.  I thoroughly enjoy helping everyone that I can in planning their magical adventure.

The services that I offer in planning a Disney vacation are completely FREE!  I can assist with budgeting, room selection, dining reservations (with attention to food allergies and restrictions), tours, "grand gatherings", transportation services, and personal itineraries.  My family has stayed at every resort level within the park and I have learned the benefits and experiences that they offer.  Whether you are traveling to the parks, going on a cruise or going on one of Disney's amazing Adventures - I can help with it all.  It is my goal to be personally attentive to every detail in order for you to have the most magical vacation.

When my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 4, I became even more aware of ways to travel to Disney.  I have learned and experienced more of what they offer and how they genuinely care for everyone that comes through their gates.  There are many tips and strategies I have gathered through the years to make our adventures flow smoothly with few bumps.  These strategies can benefit many families with special needs. I will work for you as your liaison in order to get your needs met.  With my help, your family will have the opportunity to have an amazing adventure.

Please feel free to contact me and ask me anything that you need to know or are concerned about.  I know that it can be overwhelming traveling with a loved one with Diabetes or any type of special needs (Celiac, Autism, Asthma, MS, Allergies, etc), but it is possible and it can be magical.  I will be happy to share with you the many things I have learned through the years and share my personal experiences.

You can contact me at or call me toll free at 1-800-670-4312 ext 125  or on my cell 404-277-0212


See?  I told you she'll be able to help :)

PS -- I'm not getting a free vacation, a set of mouse ears, a free meal, or anything else for telling you about Robyn.  I just wanted to share a helpful resource for anyone who may be me :)

  1. Oooh, Disney AND FFL would be AWESOME! All the bloggers that were there this summer seem to have wonderful things to say about it.
    Hope it happens for you guys! :)

  2. I so, so, so want to go too... I've already been talking about it with Fred. Of course, the Canadian FFL is in Vancouver that year. What to do, what to do?

    Go to BOTH, of course (I can dream, right?)

  3. Robyn is amazing!! She knows so much it's incredible! Hopefully you get to go next year!!

  4. Wendy, next year's FFL will be at the Marriott World Center. They alternate sites between MWC and the Coronado...but that doesn't mean you can't do the Magic Kingdom while you are in Orlando. You'll just have to go offsite from the conference.Sounds as if you'll have lots of g ood info for whenever you get to the parks. Hope to see you there; we are intending to go again next year, too. :)

  5. Thanks this is awesome!! I know when you go to the conference, you get a discount on disney packge. Which helps a lot.

    I can't say yet why or how I know this ;)

  6. Robyn is AWESOME!!! I can attest to that fact! She helped us out with lots of great info for our trip this summer!

    Here's hoping for FFL 2012! Definitely on our minds, too! HOW FUN! :)

  7. Holy cow....this is one of the best posts ever!! I have been wanting to do Disney World & Florida for some time I have a friend with a T1D son who lives in Orlando who I'd LOVE to see! And add CWD FFL to that? Awesome. What a great resource and I can't wait to find out more!

  8. We want to next year too! This is great to know that there is someone that can help me get it done!

  9. Wow, Robyn sounds like a dream! What great work she does to help families, in such a magical way. Love great people like her. Sounds like you could have a very well-planned, d-friendly adventure.
