Welcome to Focus on the Mouse!

Hello! Welcome to my new blog - Focus on the Mouse! I'm Lauren Kennedy - a travel planner for Glass Slipper Concierge specializing in Disney destinations (I know. That's a mouth full.) What that means is I plan Disney trips! You want to go to Disney? Call or email me! If you book your trip with me my planning services are free! Not too shabby, right? I will help you pick the best vacation package for your family including resort, dining, and any special events. All trips booked with me come with a customized detailed itinerary.

On this blog you can expect to find all things Disney including a ton of Disney photography by yours truly. Oh, did you know on top of being a Disney travel planner I am a photographer? Let me tell you a little bit about myself before we dive into the good stuff. Hopefully I don't bore you and you stick around! I live in the Seattle area and have been a wedding/lifestyle photographer since 2007 (Lauren Kennedy Photography). I have been a Disney addict since...hmmmm...birth?? Ok, maybe not quite that early. It was pretty early in life though. I grew up in California and visited Disneyland during my childhood more times than I can count. Here's a favorite photo of me and my brother at Disneyland

I did not have a chance to visit Disney World until I was 23. (I know. Shame on me!) My husband and I went for our one year anniversary. I think my Disney loving mind exploded when I realized what I had been missing! We began going multiple times a year and I realized something - I am SUPER fortunate to have a Disney loving husband. He is pretty magical.

My hope for this blog is for it to be informative but fun! In between all the Disney news and tips I will talk about how I plan my personal trips to Disney (let's face it - I go often) including a bunch of photos from said trips with tips on how to better your vacation photography. In the next couple weeks look for posts on my combo girls weekend/training trip to Disney World last month! I got to experience Disney World decorated for the holidays for the first time and I fell in love. I will also be posting about my cruise to Alaska this past June and my trip to Disneyland in October. After the new year be looking out for a giveaway I am working on to celebrate the start of my blog! For now I will leave you with a favorite photo from my trip to Disneyland. Have you seen Cars Land at California Adventure yet? It is Disney magic at it's best!
