Far and away, the most popular question I get is “what is the ZADD Crew?” This is also one of the hardest questions to answer since what started as my wife, Dana, and me sharing our Disney journey has quickly become something much bigger than I ever thought. From day one, I wanted to host a podcast, have a forum, have a blog, and run an inclusive social media group based on my passion for Disney. Never did I think this would all come together as one media family where I get to work with amazing friends and contributors who share the same passion for spreading Disney magic.
The Zip A Dee Doo Crew was founded in March 2017, a very busy and life-changing month for me. We started ZADD Crew, went on a trip that included Walt Disney World and a Disney Cruise, and right when I came back from that cruise, I signed my contract as a travel planner for Magical Vacation Planner (e-signed on my phone standing in the middle of Main Street U.S.A). My first thought was “well, this makes it official, CJ; Disney is now your life.” As the ZADD Crew grew this last year, so did my imagination and dreams of what this could be. Would other people want to be involved? Could we be something different? Could a group of people, who were total strangers a year ago, come together to build a powerhouse team? You will find in your time on this site, the answers are a resounding “yes” to the point it humbles me
This is the whole dream coming together: working with friends, sharing Disney joy, bringing all the different forms of media we can deliver you to one place. Now, I sit here writing this to you all, a week before the launch of our biggest project yet… The ZADD Crew Blog. The answer as to why? because I would be foolish not to. We have formed a team of committed writers, editors, photographers, and specialists in many forms of media to bring you the latest and greatest in Disney news, merchandise updates, vacation tips, and real-life Disney vacation experiences. I am honored by the team we are able to bring you. This is what it was about from day one, and I didn’t even know it.
I speak for everyone on the team when I say we will always give you the best we can here at ZADD Crew Media. We take our commitment to bring you timely news, valid facts, and the most Disney magic we can very seriously. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us in the forum under the Blog Q&A section or head to our “contact us” page.
