Me and The Magic

Our Mission

To be a recognized leader in the travel industry, providing inspiration and resources for solo travel through the podcast, website, newsletter, social media, and other offerings; and to foster connection through group trips, meet-ups, the online community, and events.

Me and the Magic is dedicated to encouraging people to travel solo and experience the magic that the world has to offer.

Through the podcast, website, community, and social media, Me and the Magic connects people to share travel experiences, tips, and recommendations.

In 2018, Amanda created the Disney Travel for All website to provide adults and solo travelers with Disney travel tips and resources.

In 2020, Amanda started the Disney Travel for All podcast and community. After moving to Orlando and living through the pandemic, Amanda refocused more on solo travel, both to Disney destinations and beyond, while also continuing to provide general travel recommendations and reviews that apply to everyone.
