A Milestone

We hit our 300th post this morning and I wanted to make sure to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read, to care, and to sincerely become a part of our family. We don’t take lightly the true friendships we have made, nor will we ever in the coming future. I have truly enjoyed blogging for myself, my family, and for the love of Disney. I thought it would be fun if our readers could leave a comment on this post about something we helped you with, a tip maybe we gave you, or if you had fun at a meet up with us. Let’s get 300 today to celebrate this awesome day.  I hope you continue to read, and if we haven’t met yet, let’s plan on it! God bless each and every one of you and thanks again for being a part of our Relocated Tourist family. Have a great day!

Thanks for suporting us!

I LOVE sharing the joy of Disney, Adventure, and Travel! Every dollar you support me with goes right back into my brand for equipment, gas, and essentials. But most importantly, when you support me financially it tells me you BELIEVE in me, and that means more to me than ANYTHING! So THANK YOU for YOU!!

  • Amy,

    WOW! 300, I am so proud of you to continue to do what you love to do and what you have helped me with is to be not afraid to dream even if there are road blocks, bumps, because in the end there will be magical, joyous days and also to see you amazing family to stand by you and love you, support you is the greatest reward.


  • I can easily think of a comment. Thanks to our dinner together back in January (and it seems like a lifetime ago now) Jen and I were inspired to move up our own move by almost 2 years.



  • I am thankful for the blog that has led me to love and adore this family! Thank you for sharing your lives with us as we celebrate along with you as your dreams have come true. Love all y’all! Hugs πŸ™‚

  • Happy 300th! Your journey is an inspiration to anyone with the desire to make the big move to Florida. Truthful, funny, heartwarming and so much more. Thank you for sharing your adventure and thank you for sharing your lovely family with all of us. God bless and keep on blogging!

  • You have given me the courage to consider moving to Florida. We are looking at the Tampa area. Would love to be in a warmer climate and just a quick trip away from the mouse! Thanks for all your wonderful information and for sharing your journey and lives!!!

  • I love your blog! You are living my dream. I pray someday I can live it myself,but until then I am blessed by God to enjoy what you are living through your blog and as friends on facebook. Best wishes and prayers for 300 more!

  • I LOVE your blog! I can’t forsee myself living out that dream anytime in the future, (as much as I would love to), so I hope you don’t mind that I am living vicariously through you! Keep up the great work! Maybe someday I can make another trip to WDW and we could meet!

    Congratulations on 300!

  • I am so very proud of you, Amy! You and your family have been through SO much, and yet you always find the positive in it all! I am proud to call you my friend, and when I move to Orlando, I hope that we can become better friends, and we can spend much more time together!
    Congrats on 300!! Here’s to 300,000,000 more!!!
    Love you!!!

  • Amy,
    When we first thought of the idea to create a blog to capture all the information we would be researching as we came closer to our dream, I never imagined it would turn out to be what it has today. You have an amazing ability to write. Even though I have shared many of the experiances you write about, I find myself excited to go read what you wrote. It is wonderful how many lives you have touched. I am proud and lucky to stand next to you! I cant wait for the next 300, and the journey we will have getting there!

  • Congrats on your milestone! I have been following since very near the start and have enjoyed it very much! I have have learned things, laughed, cried and celebrated with you and still look forward to more!! Blessing to you all πŸ™‚

  • Happy magical 300th post. It’s been an honor to read from the beginning. Love your blog and it’s been a real comfort to me this summer. I want you to know I had to make my own Disney dream the other day since you were out of town. LOL

  • You helped me realize why I moved to Orlando. And that I should follow my dream. And I am now happily working full time at Disney and working towards more dreams. :o)

  • Amy (& Craig) πŸ™‚ –
    I am SO HAPPY that I FINALLY had the chance to meet up with you over the past week before you trip! Your blog has really helped my husband and myself with preparations for a move in the future. It has also been a huge help in keeping me connected to WDW, especially so far away with me being in Michigan! I wish you and your family only the best and I can not wait until we live closer! Hugs and prayers to all of you! -Beth

  • You have inspired me with your enthusiasm and determination to make your dreams come true! It is always fun to hear about your experiences as a resident, and it allows me to imagine what it would be like to live there too. I am filing away all of your tips, advice and experiences, as we hope to retire to Orlando in about 20 years! Thanks for everything!

  • I just love your blog! It provides me with so much information and a little Disney fix when I need it. Keep up the good work…here is to another 300 blogs!

  • Congratulations Amy and to Craig as well!

    It has been great to watch your journey from here in the midwest to Orlando. A journey, that at some point in the near future, I hope to make as well.

    It was also great to finally meet you at Epcot last week Amy!

    I wish you and your family nothing but success as you continue to enjoy a new chapter in your lives.

    Warmest regards,


  • Congratulaions on your 300th post. I don’t post often, but I have enjoyed sharing in your journey with you. I feel like I know your . We hope to live in the Disney area at least part time one day and I have really learned alot of helpful information.

  • Even though we have been relocated tourists for over 2 years (from CT) and live right here in tourist central, we have thoroughly enjoyed your blog and reading about your adventures. It’s been great to see how another family has handled their move and how you all have adapted to life here in Florida. It is completely different living here than in New England and we love it here too! Keep up the great work and we hope to meet you someday!!

  • To the Peterman Family: You have helped me through many days of missing Disney. Reading your posts & blog make my days magical. I love what you do and what you stand for. The personal touches you add make it feel so much more real and like a friendship….love that! Keep up the good work. Wishing all of you many Blessings!!!

  • I was able to see you and your family at Downtown Disney for a few minutes.Even though we had never met in person, it felt liking running into an old friend.I hope next time we will have more time to visit. I’ve been reading your blog for a while now. I never had considered moving anywhere else besides Mich until one day my husband mentioned he’d been planning to move in a few years. After I watched what you and your family went through with all the sorting and getting rid of stuff I realized I needed to get a move on..I have 30 years of accumulation to sort through. I’ve made a lot of progress this past summer. Your blogs have really helped tremendously.I’m, watching and learning from you, There a many things I didn’t think about that you are helping me to realize. Thank you for taking time to share all your information!

    Also, I’m so glad you were able to visit WI. Its fun seeing your pictures!! Terri Dobbins

  • Congratulations on your 300th blog post! I came to your blog pretty recently, just a little before you made your big move. Your blog helps me with the title-Going from What If to Why Not? That is a question I think we all could ask ourselves. We only have one life, we need to reach for our dreams, no matter what they are nor how improbable they may sound. Thanks for writing!
