Krysten Swensen

A born and bred New England girl living the Disney life in Southern California. I love to read, to watch The Golden Girls, enjoy a Red Sox game, and love everything to do with Disney and Universal. Disney’s best character ever is Figment, and its most underrated movie is The Great Mouse Detective. Love living by Walt’s belief that if we can dream it, we can do it. Follow my Disney and Universal adventures on my Instagram, @BrazzleDazzleDisney!
