About our Guest: Francine of Pixie Dust Fan

I started my Pixie Dust Fan website to be able to share my love of all things Disney. The podcast was launched last year because I needed a way to bring MORE of that 'Disney Joy' in to my every day life. I share tips and tricks for planning the best vacation but I also help keep that magic alive for people in between visits!
