About the Host

My name is Emma and I am a differently-abled adult.  I have what some call an unseen disability and I have been a Disney fan since I was four years old.  Back then, my family and I went to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida for the first time. We stayed at Disney's Contemporary Resort and had a Magic Kingdom view hotel room.  It was amazing, even for a four year old with special needs.  We rode The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh seven or eight times before our long weekend was over. Since then, I've visited Walt Disney World over twenty times and Disneyland Resort one time in 2019.  I've been to seven of the eight Disney Parks in the United States of America; only Typhoon Lagoon remains on my list.  When we visited Disneyland, we also took time to visit Walt Disney's grave to pay respect to this creative genius, who has brought smiles to millions of people's faces since 1928 when he first arrived in California.
