Missy relocated to Lakewood Ranch, FL from Plainfield, IL with her Disney-loving-husband and three children! She has worked as a nurse for over twenty years. When Missy and her husband’s first child was born, he was diagnosed with Fragile X Syndrome, the leading cause of inherited mental impairment. Her son has cognitive, speech and motor delays as well as sensory processing delays. Missy is a volunteer regional leader for the Community Support Network for the National Fragile X Foundation.
Missy’s interest in Disney has been there as long as she can remember. Her first Disney vacation didn’t occur until the age of twenty-three! Since that first trip, she has been to Walt Disney World countless times, Disneyland, and even Honeymooned on the Disney Cruise Line. In fact, she was introduced to her husband by mutual friends because of their common interest in all things Disney. Her husband even proposed to her on a boat on Village Lake at the Disney Marketplace. Missy and her husband became Disney Vacation Club Members when their oldest son was very young. They recognized when they would travel to Walt Disney World, their son’s attempts at language would explode. Although the environment can be overwhelming at times, the vacation planning and memories have led to daily conversations!
Missy is experienced in utilizing the Disability Access Service for her son that is living with Fragile X Syndrome. Missy looks forward to helping you plan your own Disney magic! Missy’s services are free with every booked vacation package.
