Instagram Influencer, Deana Romano

We are so very excited for our podcast episode this week. We are joined by such a fun guest. She is a mom, Disney fanatic, and former Disney cast member. To us, she is also Instagram influencer, Deana Romano, most commonly known by her Instagram handle, @Magical_Dunn_Mama.


A bit about Deana

Deana is originally from Monticello, New York in the Catskill Mountains. She is the mom of two children, Avery and Adelina. She is a lifelong Disney fanatic, having been going to Walt Disney World and Disneyland since she was a young girl. Deana was a Disney Cast Member for 10 years and held all sorts of roles with the company. She attended The Culinary Institute of America for Baking and Pastry Arts and one of her first roles working for Disney was at The Grand Floridian as a pastry chef!

Non-Disney related, Deana also had weight loss surgery in 2011 and lost over 150 pounds going from a size 22 to a size 4. She also has Hashimoto’s Disease which is a thyroid disorder and she talks about these issues as well as body positivity on her page.

In fact, all of these topics come together through Deana’s wildly successful Instagram page and her bubbly, warm personality shines through in her fun reels and honest, no holds barred posts which really make her relatable to her fans.

Deana's Mousekecocktail

I Lava You Cocktail

Of course we always have to begin our show with our little initiation ritual. Deana started us off by sharing her favorite Mousekecocktail with us. Check out the recipe for the “I Lava You” Pina colada!

Deana’s Instagram page is still relatively young but she’s already got over 30,000 followers and she is working as a brand ambassador for several affiliates. This was not the intention when Deana started out. After moving back to Florida after a brief stint in Ohio, Deana was looking for other mom friends who shared her love of Disney. She began posting pictures of her Rae Dunn collection on her Instagram page. Soon, Instagram Reels were introduced and Deana decided to spend the next several months creating 1-2 fun reels every day to highlight her Disney nostalgia collection, and provide commentary about motherhood, body positivity and Disney fandom. She has not missed a single day. These reels have become her signature and, for many of us, our first introduction to her page.
