Lisa DiNoto is a Florida-based mom of two who writes for The Castle Run, a personal blog she created about Disney and running.
On Monday, DiNoto dropped her children off at their first day of school, and then celebrated the occasion by visiting Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. She also got a celebratory button and took photographs with characters while there.
Speaking to INSIDER, DiNoto said it “just seemed natural” to visit the theme park, where she “had a little popcorn on Main Street” and took a ride on the Tomorrowland PeopleMover.
DiNoto also said she took the trip because she feels it’s crucial that “moms are allowed to have mental health days.”
