About This Blog


Steve in front of the original Sleeping Beauty Castle

Thanks for visiting my blog!  My name is Steve Shadle and I have been a librarian for over twenty years.  Not having enough to do in my life, I decided to start offering my services as a travel consultant specializing in Disney and European destinations as well as cruise vacations. To paraphrase Sam Eagle, this blog will be A Salute to All Things, But Mostly Disney (and if you understand that reference, you are a true Disney fan!).

For clients, I will provide information about current Disney promotions and happenings around the theme parks and other Disney destinations.  For friends, I will provide trip reports, things of interest to me and reports on how it is to be newly minted in the travel profession while still keeping a full-time job.  And for other readers who happen to stumble across this, I hope to provide an entertaining diversion into my eclectic geek life.  To that end, I would like to thank my employer of nearly twenty years (the University of Washington Libraries) for their continued support and my host agencies (CruisingCo.com and MouseEarVacations.com) for their incredible patience as I get this new venture off the ground.

More information about my personal travel interests and experience are available from my MouseEarVacations consultant profile.  As an authorized Disney travel agent (and graduate of the College of Disney Knowledge) with many years of visiting the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts, I am well qualified to plan a truly outstanding vacation for you!

Feel free to leave a comment on any blog post or page.  If you would like to communicate directly with me (whether for more information or to book your next vacation), please contact me at steves@cruisingco.commessage me on my business Facebook page or fill out a vacation interest inventory.  And Thanks Again! for spending some of your time with me!

PS  Everyone else thinks I’m talking to them, but I’m really just talking to you!  The first person who correctly identifies the source of the Sam Eagle reference and leaves a comment will receive a Starbucks gift card!
