About Jackie’s Magical Moments


About Me:

Hi, I’m Jackie.

I’m married and have two children, ages 19 and 15.

I’m a full-time childcare Center Director turned work-at-home mom.

I am a Disney fanatic. My love for Disney started after our family’s first trip to Disneyland in 2004, the first time we took our kids on a Disney vacation. It was amazing and magical. Since then, we’ve been to Disneyland many more times and have been to Walt Disney World on large family vacations countless times over the years.

I love social media and I really became excited about it when I attended the very first Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in February of 2010. When social media first became a “thing”, I was a little intimidated, but DisneySMMoms really changed my whole thinking process about the online community. After learning the ropes, I am in love with social media and all that goes along with it.

I’m also a proud member of the 2013 and 2014 Disney Parks Moms Panel and, just so you know, this is my personal blog and¬†everything in it¬†is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinions of Disney Parks or the Walt Disney Company. I’m happy to do product reviews, giveaways, or other promotions. I will give my own honest opinion, good or bad. If you’d like to work together, please email me at jjzmgailey@gmail.com.

About My Family:

I’ve been married for 20+ years. My husband works as a Field Service Engineer repairing medical lab equipment. We share our home office and some days, we get to have a lunch date while the kids are at school. It’s so nice to be able to enjoy each others’ company occasionally while we work.

We are a big electronics family. The boys are big-time gamers and the girls, well, we’re big timer surfers of everything online from shopping to planning our next getaway!

We relocated from Seattle, WA to Savannah, GA during the summer of 2010 on our first cross-country road trip. What a fabulous adventure that was! We’ve been down to Walt Disney World quite a number of times since our move for short weekend trips. It has been amazing! We relocated again in June of 2013 from Savannah, GA down to Jacksonville, FL to be even closer to the magic and now we head over to Walt Disney World at least once a month. We love to travel, especially spur-of-the-moment road trips and we’ve figured out how to make them happen as often as we possibly can. We’ve found that there is so much to see and do within driving distance here on the East coast, so we get out of the house as much as we can.

About This Blog:

I started Jackie’s Magical Moments years ago because I just love to share my family’s experiences in hopes of helping other families experience the magic in their every day lives.
