About Us

This is the blog of The Gowder Family – Paul, Kelli, and Brooke.

We went to WDW for the first time together in 2000 to celebrate Kelli’s graduation from Columbia College.  We muddled through the summer heat of Florida the Unofficial Guide in our backpack.  Despite not knowing much of the tricks of WDW, we had a great time!  And we were hooked.

Now 14 years later we are certifiable Disney Freaks!  Brooke (14 years old as of today) has been to WDW over 25 times.  We’ve done 7 Disney Cruises and even managed a few trips to Disneyland.

We have done Disney trips with family and friends.  We’ve taken parents to WDW and on a cruise, met up with friends for meals, toured with other families, and even planned an entire trip with another family.   Whether we are in the parks with you or helping you before you leave, we love talking Disney!

SouthernFamilyTravels.com is the place we want to share these experiences, stories, tips, and photos.  Our goal is to help add a little Disney magic to your family’s trip.

Hope you enjoy!
