Welcome to Chaos & Castles! I’m Kendra and I keep things running around here. If you want to get to know the real me, I’m loud, slightly crazy, and yea, I really love Disney!
The reason I started Chaos & Castles is I wanted to help families add a little magic to their lives.
When I was expecting our daughter (Pixie Princess), we were really struggling to make it through the day. We were told she could be born with a number of problems, and we couldn’t do anything but wait. As the bills and worry piled up, our existing family began to feel strained and disconnected.
On a whim, my husband (Shaun) turned on a YouTube video of Disneyland. He wanted to show our son (Disney Dude) something he had grown up doing. Before we knew it we had watched video after video.
As a parent, I was looking for ways to connect with my kids. As an adult, I wanted an escape from stress and the every day. As a person, I wanted to be a part of a community.
When we first started watching those Disneyland vlogs as a family, I had no idea Disney would make all those things happen in one place, but here we are!
For us, Disney is a family hobby. I like to say, “Life is a road trip. Our faith is the car that keeps us going in the same direction, and Disney is the road games that make the journey fun.” And let me tell you, it makes life really fun!
Back to why we’re all here. Maybe your family feels a little disconnected or you just need a break from something. all families need a place to get away, have fun, and connect, but that doesn’t mean you have to travel far to make it happen.
Disney is more than just movies. It’s a place for families to come together, for the impossible to happen, and for adventures to begin!
Here at Chaos & Castles, we show you how to go from mundane to magical with a Disney twist. Let me help you add some magic to your life.
