Many serious Disney World fans, including myself, have asked themselves this question: "What would it be like to actually move to Central Florida?" For most of us, there have been too many obstacles to fulfill such a dream. However, a short time ago, Amy and Craig Petermann turned their dream into reality. Along with their girls, Kyra and Emily, they left Wisconsin and relocated to Kissimmee, Florida to take up permanent residence right next to Mickey and company.

The Petermanns wrote over 150 articles leading up to their recent move. Throughout the past year, they wrote about many different topics related to Walt Disney World. They discussed previous vacations, tips and tricks, and some of their favorite things to do. They also chronicled their feelings and emotions related to their relocation plans. In reading about this family's journey, you really feel like you are along for the ride. Since their arrival in Florida about a month ago, Amy has changed the tone from one of anticipation to now enjoying the destination. While much of Craig's time is being taken up by his job, Amy continues to write about the experience of becoming Florida residents.

Someday, my wife and I hope to be like "Carl and Ellie" and follow in their footsteps to live closer to the magic. Although that dream may be in the distant future for us, the Petermanns have certainly proven that a dream can turn into reality when the time is right. They are a great resource for anyone thinking of relocating and they invite people to contact them. Whether you're planning to make a big move or just want to "virtually" follow a family who has done it, I highly recommend reading The Relocated Tourist. I look forward to each and every article and hope to meet Amy and Craig in person someday.
Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward. See ya real soon!
