My name is Thom Alvarez and I have been an educator for over 20 years. I grew up in Los Angles, California and started going to Disneyland when I was 6 years old. This is when my passion for all things Disney started. I now live in Missouri with my wife Teri and our three children Josh, Jackson and Lola who are all equally obsessed with Disney and Universal. Our favorite vacations have always involved Disney. My favorite park will always be Disneyland but our family usually picks Disneyworld for our vacations. I would love to use my 40 plus years of Disney experiences to help plan your dream vacation.
