Favorite Character: Minnie Mouse
Favorite Rides: Rockin’ Roller Coaster, It’s a Small World
My name is Suzie Altpeter, and a friend recently described me as the “Disney-est gal” she knows! It was one of the best compliments I’ve ever gotten! One of my earliest childhood memories is of riding the monorail with my new stuffed Minnie Mouse when her dress came untied. I started to fix it, but my mother gently admonished me by saying, “No, Suzie, don’t knot it. Tie it in a bow.” I didn’t know how to tie a bow, but I learned, right there, riding the monorail! My own sons both said “Mickey” among their very first words. We used to travel to Walt Disney World® at least once a year, often bringing grandparents and extended family, but recently relocated to a home nine miles from the Magic Kingdom!
If you ask me who my hero is, I will tell you, without hesitation, Walter Elias Disney. I admire the effort and dedication that he put into the things that he built. As a mother, I understand why he wanted a special place where families could spend time together. I am delighted to be part of planning your precious family vacation time. I look forward to working with you!
