Meet Adventurer Mom

I’m Lorelei Ketcherside, but my friends call me Lori. I’m wife to my prince charming, and homeschooling mom to my pirate and princess. I love indulging in predawn runs, soy hot chocolates, and pedicures. I read, bake a legendary “burnt” chocolate chip cookie, pin vegan recipes and complicated crafts which I have no intention of making and help plan vacations for friends and future Mouseketeers. (Yes, I’m a travel agent!)

Even before my grandparents took me to Disneyland in the early nineties, I loved all things Disney. The Little Mermaid, our very first VHS, wore through long after my sister and I committed each lyric to memory, while Beauty and the Beast earned a second viewing before it left theatres. Over a dozen trips to the World (and a Disneymoon) later, Ben and I finally ventured into uncharted waters as I found my Disney home at sea aboard the Disney Cruise Line! Our two little mouseketeers eagerly joined our adventures and now we love a good Disney vacation by land or by sea!

I was surprised and thankful to be a finalist for the Disney Parks Moms Panel for the Disney Cruise Line last fall. I’m thrilled to begin the application again this fall! On vacation, I’m happiest in the Cove Café sipping a cocoa, FastPassing on to an E ticket ride, reading on my verandah, indulging at Palo, hiking around the Caribbean or sunbathing in a hammock on Castaway Cay.

Say Cheese!

I love making new friends on Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest and Twitter mostly sharing favorite tricks and tips for all things Disney (with the occasional mom/homeschool/everyday zaniness thrown in to the mix). My latest adventures include a “just me and the kids” trip to the Walt Disney World Student Seminars and getting invited to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On The Road in Austin, Texas.
Thank you for joining along in my many adventures!

If you’re looking to vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line, Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa, Adventures By Disney or beyond, I’m happy to work with you to create memories that will last a lifetime.
