Kristin BillingsKristin and her family relocated to southern California two years ago. After many wonderful visits to Walt Disney World, they found Disneyland to be their happy place in the midst of the stressful transition of a cross-country move. As annual passholders, they’ve relished the opportunity to truly take their time exploring the amazing details and history of the Disneyland Resort. In addition to Disneyland visits, Kristin loves adventuring to other theme parks and destinations in her southern California backyard. Her background as a blogger, writer, and travel agent with Off to Neverland Travel make her a natural fit for the PassPorter team, so Kristin jumped at the opportunity to apply when she heard Jennifer discussing her need for a SoCal-based writer on the PassPorter Podcast. Kristin lives in sunny Ventura, California with her husband and two young sons, who gladly helped with research for this book.
