Here is the group of people that bring you the “Magic” for The Main Street Mouse.
Owner / Head Blogger / Live Feed and Video Host / Public Relations / Editor
Michele Atwood is the Owner/Editor of The Main Street Mouse and it’s subsidiaries and author of the books “Moving to Main Street U.S.A.” “How Many Sleeps Till Disney?” and “How Many Sleeps Till Disneyland?” Michele also contributes Disney news to the Joe Kelley Morning Show on 96.5 WDBO in Orlando. She and her family made the move from Michigan to the Orlando area to pursue their Disney dreams. Michele is a life long Disney fan and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others.
~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
Michele is available for interviews, podcasts, product reviews, etc. Please contact us for scheduling.
Scott Atwood – Co-Owner / Webmaster/ Business Relations / Show Co-Host
Scott Atwood is the co-owner and co-creator of The Main Street Mouse. Working in a technical support position for 18 years, it was time for a change. As the Webmaster and Project Planner, I spend most of my time researching everything from the latest Disney News, technology advances and of course keeping up on all the Marvel news that comes out. I never considered myself a writer but I’ve come to like blogging and sharing news with all. I feel blessed everyday that I get to spend my days working with my best friend and love of my life while we continue to grow and expand what started as a hobby all those years ago.
Corey Tucker – Writer / Facebook Moderator
Corey Tucker has been a writer, moderator, and an admin, amongst various other roles with the TMSM for over 8 years. When he’s not playing with radiation at his day job at a nuclear plant, he can be found hanging out with friends and family and possibly planning another trip to Walt Disney World. If you frequent the site very often (or at least on Tuesdays) then you’ve probably heard of the world famous blog posting “Tuesdays with Corey”, that’s him. Every Tuesday he has a blog about foods, history of the parks or whatever he feels is pertinent at the moment. So if you don’t currently read his blogs, please start. It’s been known to change lives…really it has.
Chuck Guth – Writer / Facebook Moderator
Chuck Guth grew up with “The Wonderful World of Disney” and has always had a love for all things Disney. His lifelong goal was just to move to Florida and work on Main Street in the Emporium. Though the dream is unfilled he did make the move to Florida in 2018 and the inside of his home looks like an emporium with all of the Disney collectibles. His wife, Karen is also a Disney lover as well as his daughter and stepdaughter. In fact, his daughter works for the Disney Company. He is pretty much a member of any official Disney group (D23, DVC, DCL, AP, etc.). Both Chuck and Karen are cruise nuts and love cruising with Disney Cruise Line. Outside of Disney, he is an Instructional Assistant working with 3 and 4-year-old Pre-K children. Both he and his wife are very active with Compassion International sponsoring six children and facilitating events/concerts.

LaKresha Tucker I’ve always enjoyed Disney movies but was not introduced to the magic of Walt Disney World until my honeymoon in 2001. Corey and I have been married 19 years and have been to Disney World countless times, our next goal is Disneyland. Our children Stellan & Clara both started their trips to Disney as infants and love it just as we do. Corey introduced me to TMSM many years ago, we are thankful for we now have an extended Disney family. I work full time as an RN and have lived in the same Alabama town my whole life. When I’m not working my time revolves around family trips, kids activities and just spending time with family
Jackie Kutney – Writer / Facebook Moderator
Jackie Kutney is originally from Orlando and a lifelong Disney fan. As a former dance teacher and competitor, she has always been drawn to that special Disney magic and the excitement from the cast members and performers. When she graduated from college in Jacksonville, she always thought she’d move back home to Orlando and work at Walt Disney World. After meeting her now-husband, life had other plans and took them a little farther away, but they still visit the parks often. She enjoys sharing her love of Disney with her two sons (and just about everyone else) as well as helping friends and family plan their visits. She loves Mickey ice cream bars, fireworks, roller coasters, and just about everything Disney.

Dan Fischer – Writer
After spending the majority of his working life in retail, Dan Fischer decided to enroll in culinary school at the age of 36. While in school, he began working in and around the Philadelphia area, eventually settling with Iron Hill Restaurant and Brewery, a small but extremely successful chain of brew pubs. After a brief stint as the pastry chef at the world-famous Pine Valley Golf Club, Dan has returned to Iron Hill to continue exploring his “savory side”. Dan and his wife are DVC members, Platinum-level Castaways, and have been to Disney theme parks more than twenty times in nine years. His all-time favorite Disney dish was La Cellier’s poutine with duck confit (now tragically off the menu). He would love to work for just about any restaurant in World Showcase. He lives in New Jersey with his wife Leslie, and their dog Loki.
John “Panda” Saccheri – Writer
John “Panda” Saccheri is the creator of the BigFatPanda.com YouTube Channel.
John has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. He only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about his “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward.
Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
