About Us

Hello!

If you’ve found yourself here, I’m guessing you want to know a little bit more about us?!

We are the Ordever Family, and live in the United Kingdom. We have been going to Walt Disney World since 2011, and became Disney Vacation Club Members at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows in 2015. 

Meet The Cast Members

Me with Winnie the Pooh

Michelle – that’s me, the writer of this here website. I also write over on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, where you’ll find me sharing ideas and inspiration from season to season.

I’m 39 years old, and have always loved Disney. I have always wanted to go to Walt Disney World, and that dream came true in 2011 when I booked our first trip!

I’m a plus-size chick, and you will always find tips and a ride size guide from my point of view. I am forever on a weight loss mission, but having visited Orlando at many sizes now, from a UK24 to a UK32, I’ve got it covered! I’m here to answer your questions if you’re worried about your size and having a holiday in Orlando.

I love photography, so you will always see me with a camera in my hand and snapping the most random of things! I use a Panasonic Lumix as well as my iPhone, and am happy to answer any of your photography questions too!

Steve with Tigger

Steve – that’s my husband. He’s in his 40s, and fully supports my Disney obsession!

He took a little persuading for our first trip in 2011, but now that we’ve been he loves being able to go back! His mission on holidays is usually to eat all the food! He loves his grub, and quite frankly, I don’t know where he puts it all!

He’s the one that holds it all together! He is the responsible one, holder of important documents, videographer and pack horse!

Why packhorse? Because he carries our backpack with our theme park supplies! We don’t visit without things like sun cream, water and ponchos! All vital for a day at any Florida theme park.

Liam with Donald Duck

Liam – that’s my son, and Steve’s stepson. He loves his holidays in Orlando and knows he’s a lucky lad to be go as many times as we’ve been able to in the last few years. He throws himself into it when it comes to meeting characters and having fun, which, as a mum, makes me very happy too! I’m so glad that I don’t have a grumpy teenager!
