Hello! My name is Stokes. I am happy to join the WDW & Beyond team as a contributing writer to the website. I have been a lifelong Disney fan that started as a child watching Disney movies and taking frequent trips to Walt Disney World with my family. As an adult I have taken an interest in the history of the parks and the life of Walt Disney himself. I am lucky enough to share this interest with my lovely wife as we travel to various Disney destinations including Disneyland, Aulani, and Walt Disney World.
