Today we’d like to introduce you to Meg Magical Meg.
Hi Meg, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I began my YouTube channel, Magical Meg over 7 years ago. As a huge Disney fan that originally lived in Pennsylvania, I found a love for Disney-based social media. Watching Disney vlogs and keeping up with Disney news on Instagram was how I stayed connected to the magic of the Orlando theme parks from a thousand miles away. I come from a Disney-loving family, and trips to Walt Disney World has always been my family’s favorite vacation destination. We have been Disney Annual Passholders for over 10 years and would take trips down to Orlando to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth every chance we got. I started my YouTube channel as a fun hobby and way to document my family’s vacation memories. My YouTube vlogs quickly became my biggest passion. I have loved getting to capture and preserve my family’s memories to look back on. Getting to share those moments online with other Travel / Disney fans has been incredible. Building an online community has been one of my favorite parts of my vlogging. At the beginning of this year, I fulfilled a lifelong dream and made the permeant move to Orlando, and now get to experience the parks as a local. In moving here to the sunshine state, it became my goal to expand my YouTube career and I have loved getting to document my moving journey. Having the ability to vlog the current happenings from the theme parks has brought growth to my channel, and I am grateful for the opportunities that I have to continue to grow as a content creator. Looking to the future, I am excited to expand my vlogs to cover more Florida destinations as well as other travel experiences.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I am self-taught when it comes to how to film and edit videos. I have enjoyed getting to learn as I go and expand my skill set. The biggest challenge in my YouTube career has been figuring out what viewers are most interested in watching and finding creative ways to continue to grow my business.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I run my YouTube Channel, Magical Meg. I specialize in creating travel vlogs with a focus on Disney Parks vlogs. I enjoy getting to form a connection with my viewers and creating an online community with others who share a similar interest when it comes to all things theme parks and travel. I like adding in content from my personal life into my videos. Some of the vlogs I am most proud of have been my recent vlogs since moving to Florida at the beginning of this year. Finally taking that plunge to leave everything I’ve ever known to go after the dream of living in my happy place was both the scariest and most exciting thing I’ve ever done. It has been a rollercoaster of a journey, and I love that I have the journey documented through my vlogs to look back on and share with others.
Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
The Disney Community has a lot of really good people, and I am thankful to have met other content creators who I know I can trust and reach out to for advice.
