We’re here, we’re there, we’re EVERYWHERE! We’re Park Hoppers on Parade!
We are Molly, Krysta & Jessica, three Disney loving sister-cousins who want to share our love of Disney with the world! Park Hoppers on Parade started as a creative outlet for Molly and a way for her to expand her design portfolio. With the initial idea brewing she quickly brought aboard her two cousins Krysta & Jessica (who are sisters) to help out! Together with each of our unique talents, interests, styles and dreams we created Park Hoppers on Parade!
We are inspired by all things Disney and Disney Parks and we saw an opportunity to start creating the items we wished were available to us to celebrate that love! We grew up in a Disney- obsessed family and we have been going to the parks together since we can remember. Constantly building a collection of inside Disney jokes from our family vacations to the parks, in 2008 we (along with Molly’s sister Maggie, honorary Park Hopper) started the family tradition of making homemade matching tacky tourists shirts to share those jokes. They always seemed to level up every year in creativeness and tackiness. Now we are looking to take our stories and talents into the big leagues by sharing our ideas with you!
Our goal is to make this much more than an apparel store, we want Park Hoppers on Parade to be a one-stop shop for Disney and park inspired FUN! With “freebies” we want people to experience even more Disney magic in and outside the parks! Download wallpapers, bucket-lists and playlists to spread that magical Disney feeling all around and be on the look out for even more wonderful awesomeness to come! We’ve packed up our suitcases with ideas and dreams and we are excited to see where this road takes us! There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow and tomorrow is just a dream away!
Hola! It's Molly - I'm the "creator" hopper, aka I design all the things! I have a degree in Studio Art and in my real-world full-time life I work as an Art Director for a real estate investment company. I've always been obsessed with Disney Parks - spending most of my childhood reading books about them, re-watching "A Day at Disneyland" (if you've never seen it, stop what you're doing and watch it here, its pure 90's magic), and designing my own park rides, games, etc. I think what I love most about the parks is the 100% commitment to themes! (Party planning, theming and branding is my jam). So as a lover of a good theme, my favorite rides in the park are Indiana Jones, Haunted Mansion and the now-retired Tower of Terror - special shout our to Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Though I couldn't pick a favorite Disney movie to save my life, my favorite character is Donald Duck. But I have a pretty strong love for anything Lion King, The Emperor's New Groove, and Ducktales. When I'm not in the parks you can probably find me somewhere exploring LA with my homies, planning some sort of party or shower for someone, making corny puns, or re-watching my favorite sitcoms on Netflix.
THE PHOTO GENIUS
Wingapo! I am Krysta, the photographer hopper & the girl behind the instagram, as well as self proclaimed dreamer & horse girl of the group. In the real world I spend most of my time working under the bright lights of Hollywood in television production. Currently I work in Hollywood in a production office as an asst. office coordinator. When I get to escape work you can find me at Disneyland riding my favorite rides Thunder Mountain & Haunted Mansion, shopping for Star Wars merch at Star Trader or grabbing a tiki drink at Trader Sam's! Everyday I miss the Carousel of Progress, Country Bear Jamboree & the PeopleMover (WDW is lucky). My favorite time of year at Disney is Halloween Time. My favorite princess is Pocahontas and my favorite character would have to be… Cheshire Cat, Figment, Kermit, Meeko, Pascal, Baymax, Wall-E, R2 and of corse BB-8. I honestly can't pick just one, but I do have a thing for robots! When I am not at Disneyland you can find me hanging out with my adorable cat Gatsby, grabbing a Butterbeer at Hogwarts or going to concerts all over LA. I also love nature, road-trips with playlists and camping with friends in National Parks!
Howdy folks! I am Jessica, the self-proclaimed nerd of the bunch. In my muggle job I do science and contribute to projects that combat illnesses. When I’m not buried in data, you can find me organizing my pin collection or planning my next Disney trip. My favorite Disney movies are Robin Hood, Aristocats, Princess and the Frog, and Bedknobs and Broomsticks. I became obsessed with Stitch after visiting Tokyo Disneyland, he’s the cutest! My favorite rides are Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be New Orleans square. My BFF is a little black cat named Rue who breathes like Darth Vader in her sleep. My spirit animal is J. Thaddeus Toad Esq.; I named my Mini Cooper after him; and yes I do tend to drive a bit crazy when I’m merrily on my way to nowhere in particular. Besides Motor Mania, my hobbies include growing old (not growing up), enjoying the occasional adult beverage, and hula hoop tricks.
