After living and working in Orlando for almost two decades and eating at just about every single restaurant and visiting every tourist attraction in the city, it was time to move on.
Button and her husband sold everything, moved out of their townhouse, and traveled the United States in an RV for a year. They spent all of their time visiting America’s National Parks.

Button is the author of The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home and The Disney Queue Line Survival Guidebook, as well as two Orlando travel apps.
At the age of 3 years old, Button was diagnosed with cancer and was treated by St. Judes doctors. She still remembers the Make-A-Wish trip her family took when she was young. As a Disney cast member, she loved making memories for Wish kids and volunteering at Give Kids the World.
After being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and hip problems in college, Button has found that travel is perhaps the best thing that helps her deal with pain and physical limitations. The more she travels, the better she feels! The more she sits at home, the worse her symptoms get.
She spent years walking with a cane and using a wheelchair. Because of her experience, she is mindful of sharing accessibility details with travelers and being mindful of how to travel with a disability.
She currently lives in western North Carolina and spends lots of time exploring Hendersonville, Asheville and the Southeast.
