About Me

"When planning a new picture we don't think of grown ups and we don't think of children but just of that fine, clean, unspoiled spot down deep in every one of us that maybe the world has made us forget and that maybe our pictures can help recall."

Walt Disney said that.

That's my kind of pixie dust - the happiness and the inspiration that lead you down deep to your truest self.

I feel a little like Mushu in that scene from Mulan...

"Who am I??  WHO - AM - I?!???"


Why, I'm Emma, thanks for asking.  It's nice to meet you!  :welcome:

This is my blog.  A Pinch of Pixie Dust.  I like to think of it as the second blog to the right...like Neverland, in Internet form. ;)  But with fewer crocodiles and pirates.  (Unless it's the Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time.  He's cute.  He can stay.)

I love to write.  It's my favorite thing.  I also love to take pictures.  A whole lot of them.  And videos - I like to make vlogs for my youtube channel too.


Whatever the medium, I love dreaming up creative ways to share the happiest thoughts - any merry little thoughts - such as... travel adventures, chocolate concoctions, Jane Austen, cupcakes, fashion, really good classic books (especially British!), princesses, fancy words, ancient castles, palm trees, poetry, P.G. Wodehouse, clever details half-hidden in plain sight, white dresses with blue satin sashes, snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes...oh yeah, and Walt Disney World, too.


But you probably already guessed that last one. ;)

For years I've loved sharing our family vacations to WDW in my "Disney Snob" trip reports online, and when I moved to Florida with a job as a cast member after college, I figured I'd take it to the next level with a Disney Snob BLOG!

I have since left Florida and returned to the Northeast to pursue a career in communications, but I do still love Disney - one of my brothers still works there - and I'll keep sharing all the photos, favorites, details, stories, and cupcakes from our trips!


I kinda have a thing for cupcakes.  You should probably know that up front.

Be sure to leave a comment to say hello and share your thoughts and stories - hearing from you guys is half the fun!  Interested in working together?  Let's get in touch: emma@apinchofpixiedust.com.


Now, that's enough about me.  Wouldn't you rather hear about fresh flowers and roaring fires at the Chateau Chenonceau in France or a super amazing bakery in the Adirondacks or a heavenly tropical forest of hammocks on Disney's Castaway Cay?  Sure you would - so get out of here and go read about them! :)

  2. Hi Emma! Just wanted to thank you for sharing all that you do on your blog! My sister and I discovered your vlog on YouTube and we love it! We reside in Southern California, and as HUGE disney fans (we know the Disneyland Resort like the back of our hand), we are so excited to be planning our first ever trip to Walt Disney World. You have definitely convinced me to stay club level! Keep up the amazing job!

    1. Hi Laura! Thank you so much for your lovely comment. :) So glad you and your sister are enjoying the blog - and so jealous of your Disneyland proximity!! We had the best time in California this spring. Club level is pretty amazing - and so relaxing after all the rushing from park to park. Hope you have a fabulous first trip to WDW!

  3. Hi Emma! Love your 1950 style dresses. Are they your own personal style or are they just for the website?

  8. Kristina V. got it exactly right -- I also love "your infectious joy of living, vacationing, and exploring the world!" I wish you hosted a TV show -- I would be a faithful viewer!

  9. Hi Emma! My husband & I are planning our first WDW vacation together. It will be my first time at WDW & he hasnt been since he was a kid. We got engaged on the Disney Dream cruise & celebrated our anniversary on the Fantasy cruise ship, so celebrations at Disney are becoming a magical tradition for us! We will be celebrating my birthday while we're there (any fun Disney birthday tips?!) & hopefully attending the Not So Scary Halloween Party! We've really been enjoying your youtube channel & blogs! Thanks for sharing all of your joy & excitement! It's really helping us plan and get pumped up! Looking forward to seeing more of the awesome Disney magic you have to offer! :-)

  10. Hi Emma! I adore your blog! It seems I come across it randomly at least once a month. Today I googled "Tokelau Disney Posters" and ended up here again. I do lots of Disney traveling myself and blog when I can. I would love to collaborate on some posts in the future. Right now I'm having some technical difficulties with my page layout but you can find me at www.houseofsummersville.com or my email is houseofsummersville@gmail.com

  11. Hi Emma! I just found you on youtube and think you are just adorable! So, here I am now reading your blog! I just love your enthusiasm and zest for life. I hope you continue on this journey. Your knowledge and excitement for books (specifically classics) is contagious. I am hoping you influence me to read more classics as I find them intimidating. I have read some but not many. Some of my favorites are Jane Eyre, Anna Karenina, East of Eden, Grapes of Wrath to name a few. Anyhoo thanks for doing what you are doing and spreading your "Pixie Dust" with the world.
