About Us

the adventure + rebellion family


I’m the primary writer behind adventure + rebellion. I grew up on Main Street USA with mouse ears on. After college, I moved to New Orleans, where my husband was born and raised. We have a beautiful life here, but still escape to the Disney bubble as often as we can! Outside of this site, I’m also the Science Mom and contribute to several other websites. I love coffee, rock n roll, science, history, literature, and bad television.


My husband grew up in New Orleans. He’s an IT nerd, which comes in handy for me! He had only been to Disney twice before our first trip together, but now he’s as hooked as I am. His favorite character is Pluto, his favorite ride is Flight of Passage, and favorite resort is the Grand Floridian. He loves energy drinks, rock n roll, fast cars, conspiracy theories, tinkering, and animals.


Our daughter Ruby turned 3 at Disney. She is so smart with a big imagination and a tenderness that can bring us to our knees. Ruby loves outerspace, dinosaurs, baby dolls, art projects, and music. Her favorite princess changes weekly, but Doc McStuffins is her favorite Disney character of all time. She’s also very proud to say that she rode Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain multiple times on our last trip and got to ride the Great Movie Ride before it closed its doors.


Lucy will be turning 2 on our next Disney trip. She’s the most independent and joyful child I’ve ever met. Her laugh makes it impossible not to smile, and she laughs all the time. Lucy’s primary interests include playing with breakable things and climbing on things she shouldn’t. She also loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, dancing, and eating all the snacks. She’s already been to Disney three times and looks forward to her first haircut at Harmony Barbershop!


the adventure + rebellion friends


Jessica is a lifelong friend and also ourĀ travel agent. She specializes in Disney vacations, as well as a whole range of other destinations! Jessica also grew up on Main Street USA and was a cast member for 10 years. She’s passed on her love of Disney to her husband David and their children and grandchildren. Jessica’s deep knowledge of all things Disney will really blow your mind. Amy loves to try to stump her, but hasn’t yet!
