Meet Our Team of Bloggers
Mandi is a wife, Mom of 3, writer, creator of WaltExpress.com, and self-proclaimed Disney nerd. She loves to travel to Disney Destinations and blog about her magical experiences so she can share all the tips, tricks, and tidbits she picks up during her travel. She and her family visit Disney World several times a year and she is always in the know when something new is happening and she shares it here first! Mandi also works as an online consultant by empowering women to be all they can be in all aspects of their life. You can find her at www.AmandaMiddleton.me
Vanda is a Mom of 2 boys who always make sure a trip to Disney World is exciting and fast-paced! Thanks to them and her work as a travel agent, she has become an expert on planning the perfect Disney trip and making wishes and dreams a beautiful reality. When she’s not planning trips for others or visiting Disney herself, she graciously shares her knowledge and experiences here on Walt Express with our readers to help you plan your very own magical Disney vacation!
Grace is an elementary librarian, wife and mother of 2 by day, and writer, editor, and magical conductor for Walt Express by night. Disney is always on her mind and in her heart as she is constantly planning her family’s next big Disney adventure and helping others do the same as a vacation planner. Her passion for helping others find their own personal happy place is matched only by her passion for learning and sharing everything Disney!
As a Mom of 2 girls, Brandi has always loved Disney but didn’t visit Disney World for the first time until she was an adult. Now, as a travel agent and blogger, she works hard to capture that first-time magic for every client and reader with her tips and tricks learned through extensive research, being a graduate of College of Disney Knowledge and a bit of pixie dust magic!
Kristin is a full-time optometrist and Mom of twin boys. As if that didn’t keep her busy enough, she also love all things running (road, trail, ultras), triathlons and, you guessed it, Disney! Want to know anything about runDisney? Kristin is your go-to guru! Her dream is to one-day attend the Disney Business Institute but until then, she’ll be taking care of her patients, visiting the happiest place on Earth as much as possible, and sharing her Disney experiences right here at Walt Express!
Amber is a full-time NYC blogger and graphic designer, but her most magical job is being a mom of one! When she’s not busy on the world wide web, you can find her reciting the entire Must Do Disney spiel or singing “A Whole New World” at the top of her lungs. She considers herself a Magic Kingdom expert, and she can’t imagine a WDW trip being complete without going on the only attraction that Walt himself touched – the Carousel of Progress! In addition to sharing insightful information about the parks and resorts, Amber can’t wait to share ideas on how to add special Disney touches to your life at home!
Brandalyn is a wife, Mom of adult twins. She and her husband, Larry are both lifelong residents of New Orleans, LA and when she’s not visiting Disney Parks, she’s watching ABC’s “Once Upon A Time”. While she tends to favor the darker side of Disney and loves all of the villains (Maleficent is her favorite), she relates mostly to Belle, as her favorite Disney princess (and she often thinks of her husband as the Beast). Walt Disney World in Florida is her “happy place” and she once dreamed of getting a job there as a princess. For now, she just contents herself with “pretending” and writing guest posts for Walt Express.

Lindsey’s favorite thing is making others happy by spreading a little magic every day. And, one of her favorite ways to do that is by sharing her knowledge of all things Disney here at Walt Express! Her experience as a travel agent and Disney Vacations (too many to count!) help her stay up to date on the latest Disney news and provide information from a personal and professional perspective.
Amy is SuperMom to two kids and travels often from their home in TN to Walt Disney World. She relies on her experiences as a single Mom and expertise as a travel agent to share tips and tricks on dining, fast passes, parks, resorts and the best way to navigate Disney Vacation Planning with kids.
Denie is a mother of two from Iowa who loves nothing more than spreading Disney magic and bringing a sparkle to the eyes of Disney fanatic children everywhere through her work as a travel agent and her articles here on the Walt Express blog. She’s a fast pass master, dining wiz, and resort reservations rockstar who looks forward to sharing her experiences with our readers!
Stefanie is a Disney fanatic (some might called it an obsession!) with an extensive portfolio of Disney Destination trips, including Disney World, Disneyland and Disney Cruise Line. Thanks to this and her work as a travel agent, she is a master at planning itineraries, dining reservations, and all the special touches that make a Disney vacation magical. The best part? She’s sharing all that knowledge and experience with us right here at Walt Express!
