WHY CASTLE PARTY?
I (Brittany DiCologero) started Castle Party with my fiancé (Chaz Saldi) in 2017 after re-branding our just-for-fun Disney blog into a full online community. We’ve always shared a love of Disney, and since moving away from Orlando, FL we’ve been looking to stay active in the Disney fan community, and Castle Party is the perfect way for us to do so!
We noticed one huge difference between us and many of the other Disney fans though– most of them were families visiting the theme parks with kids, whereas we are child-less twenty somethings who love every aspect of the Walt Disney Company– not just the theme parks, and not just kid-friendly activities.
Our “Disney community” was the one we knew from the online Disney College Program community. This experience let us befriend other fans whose interests more closely aligned with ours, but after the program many of us seemed to lose touch. Moreover, there are plenty of like-minded Disney fans who never do the Disney College Program, and with only all encompassing “family style” groups as the norm it still felt impossible to get to know those fans. And so Castle Party was born.
We’re growing all the time, and we love finding new and exciting destinations for our readers to experience in addition to Disney parks and resorts. Follow along and you can catch us covering new locations across the country, including other theme parks, museums and historic sites, live performance venues, beaches, and more!
