Hello, my name is Chris Houtchens. Like most, my Disney experience started on the big and small screen. At age 6, I was able to experience Disneyland and the characters of movie and television became bigger than life. At age 12 I was able to visit Walt Disney World for the first time. Even as a tween, the Magic was still there but I was able to appreciate the visionary and entrepreneurial spirit of Walt himself. By age 17, I was able to experience Disneyland 4 times and WDW twice. Sadly, being an adult got in the way and I didn’t return. One day, my 5 year old daughter looked up at me with that “Disney excitement”when she saw a Disney Vacation commercial. Her look brought back my memories. I told my wife, another Disney fan, that I was taking us to Disney World for Christmas that year. As we walked through the gate onto Mainstreet and saw the tree, Minnie and street performers, my wife and I were transported back to our childhood after a lifetime removed from our last trips. My daughter was now inside all of her shows and movies, just as I was when I first went to Disneyland. From that point on, we have not looked back. Now we take 1-3 trips to Disney World per year, hold annual passes and are Disney Vacation Club members. We have brought our parents and they get to turn into children as well. That moment my family experienced on Mainstreet is why I joined The Traveling Mouse Company. I want to help guide your family to a lifetime of memories. Be it your first trip or a return trip, I’d like to help make your visit the most magical possible. As Mr. Disney himself said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” Contact me for a no obligation quote and let’s pursue your vacation dreams.
