Allison Cerel Marx (“Allie”) is a veteran visitor to Walt Disney World (and Dave’s 16-year-old daughter). She has a maniacal grin, especially when spinning one of Mad Hatter’s teacups at top speed. She’s camped at Fort Wilderness, hung out in the Treehouses at the Disney Institute, celebrated New Year’s Eve 1999/2000 in the Magic Kingdom, and photographed animals at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort. She shares her “A-OK!” ratings and “Allie’s KidTips,” "TweenTips," and "TeenTips" notes for attractions in the Touring the ‘World’ chapter. The 2002-2010 editions of PassPorter's Walt Disney World include Allie's contributions.
