What up peeps! I'm Steve, the actual "Disney Fox." I started this whole thing to share my unique and imaginative perspective of storytelling through the lens of an iPhone. You'll find me roaming the happiest places on earth during my free time with the lovely lady you'll meet if you keep scrolling, and when I'm not at the parks - I can be found working on film/tv sets across the country.
I'm from Walt Disney's birthplace of Chicago, and after graduating high school I started working in TV/Film production where I've spent time living in Miami, Key West, New Orleans and Anaheim - with my homebase since 2009 in Celebration, Florida.
Obviously I'm a Disney geek, with a heavy passion for all things tiki (especially collecting mugs) and nostalgic Disney merchandise. And even though I no longer work for the Walt Disney Company or hold any affiliation with them, I did spend a few years with the Jungle Navigation Company as a skipper on the World Famous Jungle Cruise. It was may favorite ride since I could talk, and I literally lived out a childhood dream - making it the BEST JOB EVER! And yes, I still know my spiel and use those bote jokes whenever i can slide them into a conversation.
Hi everyone, I'm Carise! You'll usually find me alongside Steve and friends at the Disney Parks, eating delicious vegan food around the parks, designing magic through our business at Attractioneering Trading Company, and branding for other businesses at my own Carise Pernell Design Company. I'm your girl for all things marketing, social media, design, and of course DISNEY! Steve and I met in 2013 at Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney, and have been annoying each other since.
I'm from all over the East coast really. I was born in South Florida, moved to New Orleans, Louisiana around age 5, then off to Queens, New York till age 13 or so when I moved to Georgia until it was time for college! I attended FAMU in Tallahassee, FL for a few years but wanted to explore other options - so I joined the Disney College Program in Orlando! Disney has always held a special place in my heart but that really got emphasized when I completed my first program at Hollywood Studios in 2014. I was so in love with the area that I decided to move to Orlando and transferred to Full Sail University soon after where I got my Bachelor's in Graphic Design. I was so involved in making that magic that I could never possibly let go!
