Disney Moms Panel Monday – Andi

Straight from my heart – A glimpse into what makes my fellow Panelists so very precious to me.

Andi and I joined the Moms Panel together in December of 2009. A Mom of 4 from Alabama, beautiful Andi is a true Southern Belle. Upon returning home, this is how I described her in my Training Trip Report: “Andi is delightfully warm and inviting. She is a lot of fun and is down-to-earth. She made me smile countless times, and she is one of those people who you just want to be around. She possesses a magnetic personality.”

We had such a wonderful time together that weekend. Here we were enjoying the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue with our new family members.

I sat with Andi at Restaurant Marrakesh and had the opportunity to learn more about her. In addition to the fact that we are both “Moms of many” who love to watch football, I discovered that we share our faith in common.

Even though we chatted frequently on the phone throughout the year, the next time I saw Andi was during the Moms Panel Reunion in October of 2010.

The next day, we visited Give Kids the World Village to make our presentation to President Pamela Landwirth…

Later that afternoon, Andi, Kathie and I met up at the ESPN Wide World of Sports with our families. We all have sons the same age and they hit it off right away. In no time, they were dancing and laughing together…

Andi’s youngest son and my littlest princess enjoyed running the “Kid Races” together. It was so adorable…

Bright and early the next morning, a group of crazy brave souls met up to run the 5K together…

It was my first race, and I was so proud to have completed it with my dear friends…

In fact, many of the Moms Panel children and spouses ran too. I loved that my boys completed it with Andi and Kathie’s kids…

Andi is a ballet teacher and a huge University of Alabama football fan. Her oldest son is a football player and I’m certain it would bring her immense joy to see him play for the Crimson Tide in the near future.

In 2011, Andi was selected as the Disney Cruise Line Specialist on the Panel. She spent her year sprinkling pixie dust and planning trips for families who were going to set sail with Mickey. Unfortunately, she kept so busy that we didn’t get to see Andi for the 2011 Moms Panel Reunion. Andi is currently on hiatus, but her answers are still available online. She offers a wealth of knowledge and experience to guests.

In December of 2011, she joined several of us at Disney to help welcome the newest Members of the Moms Panel family. During a Cocktail Reception, she helped to make the toast along with a Panelist from each year…

Like all Disney Moms, Andi is a very passionate person. Her husband and children are her top priority. She is always bursting with pride whenever she talks about her “babies”. I’m so grateful that Disney brought her into my life.
