Illinois Woman Visited Disney World 23 Times & She’s Only 25 Years Old
It's me, I'm the Illinois woman who has visited Disney World 23 times. Majority of my visits were free and I'll tell you how - it's a pretty cool story!
Since everyone and their mom has been up in arms over the idea of Disney World moving their billion dollar development plan to Illinois, I wanted to lighten the mood today.
Since I was born, my parents loved, loved, loved saving every year to afford to take me and my two sisters to Disney World. I never complained because it was free for me lol.
On the left, I was a toddler with my sisters meeting Snow White. On the right, I took my best friend to Disney just a few years ago!
Once my oldest sister turned 18, she got accepted into the Disney Program, moved out of the house, and never came back.
This is how I got into Disney for free for many, many years.

I'm 25 now and have been to Disney 23 times. I skipped the last two years because I just didn't feel like it was worth it with Covid restrictions and price increases at the parks.
My sister was most known for being Mulan and Pocahontas at Disney World. She got a certain amount of comp tickets every year for friends and family, so that's how I got to go every year for free since she had worked there.
A lot of my friends used to ask what it was like visiting Disney. I always say it's a trip you can take once and fall in love with or it's a one-and-done type of vacation.
For myself, if it's free I'll go - that's exactly what I did haha. I've made so many memories over the years visiting the most magical place on Earth and I'll visit again sometime in the future.
Here's a very rare photo of me as a teenager with my sister as Mulan. So crazy!
As of right now, I'm just waiting for Disney to expand to Illinois so I don't have to travel as far. C'mon, wouldn't it be cool if Disney was built in Illinois?!
