Jennifer MarxJennifer fell in love with Walt Disney World on her first visit as a teenager in 1983. She has since returned more times than she can count on her fingers and toes many times over, visiting every park, attraction, resort, and restaurant at least once. As author of more than a dozen popular books, she yearned to write one about Walt Disney World but felt no interest in churning out yet another travel guide when there were so many excellent books already available. When she hit upon the idea of the PassPorter, she knew she could offer her fellow vacationers something unique and valuable. With the help of the PassPorter, Jennifer has organized gatherings at Walt Disney World for individuals, groups, and families of all ages and stages. Jennifer is also the creator and programmer of PassPorter's innovative LIVE! Guide and Trip Planner Tools system, which is as exciting to her as the very first edition of PassPorter. Jennifer lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is a loving mother to her amazing child Alex.
