Hello Sports Fans!

As the new Disney Sports Mom on the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I wanted to stop by and introduce myself.

Originally from Kentucky, I now reside in Southern Indiana with my husband, two sons, a dog, six cats and five chickens. I have been a homeschool mom for eight years and also serve as a soccer team manager and tournament committee member for my boys' soccer club.

I like to say that I basically grew up on a bleacher! I have been a sports daughter, sister, participant, mom and fan. I am so passionate about sports that I decided to get my degree in Sports Journalism from the University of Kentucky.

My goal as the Disney Sports Mom is to use my experiences to help you plan the perfect trip to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Walt Disney World® Resort. I have been here as a competitor at cheer and dance competitions, a runner at many runDisney events, a spectator at Atlanta Braves Spring Training games and a soccer mom with my boys at Disney Soccer Academy.

I truly believe that Disney and sports are the perfect match. They are both emotional, inspirational and allow us to believe that anything can happen!

Please visit me at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any questions you may have about traveling to ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Lori is a member of the 2016 Disney Parks Moms Panel representing ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. She is here to answer your questions and help you plan your team's next trip.
