About the arthor:

I have been a Disney parks fan since 1954 (yep a year before Disneyland opened). I watched (on a black and white TV) with great anticipation as Walt described his new amusement park that would be Disneyland and I waited anxiously for Disneyland to open. I first went to Disneyland in 1955 (opening year) and for the next 38 years I went to Disneyland at least 3 to 5 times per year. In 1993 I got my first Annual Passport to Disneyland and since then the frequency of my visits increased dramatically. In 1994 I took my family on vacation to Walt Disney World. We stayed at what was called the Disney Vacation Club, which became Disney's Old key West Resort. We fell in love with the place and immediately bought a timeshare interest in the Disney Vacation Club. Since then we have been going back to Walt Disney World every chance we get.

In June 1996 I created and published my first Disney Web site; Anaheim to Orlando: A Bi-Coastal Comparison of Disney.

Also in June 1996 I also published my first non-Disney web site, Andy's Psychology Pages which is used by students of Psychology and recommend by numerous undergraduate and graduate school Psychology professors around the world.

On April 4, 2000 I published my first Disney parks photo quiz; Anaheim or Orlando? The Bi-Coastal Question of Disney.

In late November 1999 I started a new Walt Disney World touring information web site which was published in February 2001. This touring site featured information helpful to more fully enjoying what Walt Disney World has to offer. The site was available for traditional browsers as well as in a format useable by organizers using the Palm OS for wired, wireless and stand-alone versions. As information about the Walt Disney World resort became more available on smartphones and other devices Walt Disney World ToGo became outdated and was finally discontinued in 2009.

In 1998-1999 I became interested in video. Since then I have taken over 500 GB of video at Disney parks in Anaheim and Orlando, all of it just sitting in my archive, gathering "digital dust”. The year 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of my videos in Disney parks, to commemorate this these videos are finally coming out. I started the YouTube Channel Anaheim to Orlando: A Bi-Coastal Comparison of Disney as a place to publish myDisney videos from both coasts The channel is on Youtube at Anaheim to Orlando.

I continue to look for the fun and positivity at Disney parks. Anaheim to Orlando is dedicated to presenting fun videos from Disney parks on both coasts. We are located in Southern California, 1 hours drive (on a good day) from the Disneyland Resort. I visit Disneyland as often as I can and I visit Orlando once or twice a year
