    Disney Skip List: Muppet Vision 3D

    I love Disney six ways to Sunday, but sometimes I think my beloved conglomerate really misses the mark. In the parks, I put those attractions that don’t really tickle my fancy onto a very (especially relative to what the parks offer) short “Disney Skip List.” You can read about what landed It’s Tough to be a Bug on this list here, but in this post, we venture over to Hollywood Studios to discuss the “bizarre in a not-so-charming way” Muppet Vision 3D.

    Polynesian Resort: Deluxe Studio Review- Disney World

    Polynesian Resort- Deluxe Studio Review- A few weeks ago, I ran through a 3-part series about DVC basics. (Click Here for part 1!) I absolutely love being a DVC member! I aim to someday stay at each of the DVC resorts, and was so happy to check off the Polynesian when I last visited Disney in November! Let me tell you all about it. Spoiler alert: it was fantastic.

    Disney Vacation Club – The Basics Part 3

    Part 3 of my DVC breakdown covers the odds and ends that I think are important to know about DVC. I cover some DVC facts beyond “use DVC for Disney vacations” (non-Disney park vacation uses for DVC points, the resale market, and renting DVC points) and list some points to think about when deciding if DVC is right for you. There’s a lot to cover (this is the longest part), so let’s dive in! I know I said this in both Parts 1 and 2, but it’s worth repeating: I do not work for Disney or DVC and that I am not at all being paid for or given perks…

    Disney Vacation Club – The Basics Part 2

    In Part 2 of my DVC informational series, I attempt to shed some light on some of the bonuses that come with DVC membership and share some basic information on the financing options that were available when I became a member in 2017. Let me reiterate that I do not work for Disney or DVC and that I am not at all being paid for or given perks for writing this post. This is a safe space where you’ll get only my personal opinion and experiences. Questions are welcomed and encouraged, but if you’re looking to actually buy into DVC, you should speak with somebody who is qualified (licensed?) to…

    Disney Vacation Club – The Basics Part 1

    Disney Vacation Club, or “DVC,” is a Disney-specific timeshare program that is often seen as an enigma. The points system, financing options, and the contract can all be very overwhelming and seem daunting in their own right, let alone combined. I hope, through this article, to be able to shed some light on something that I think can be a great investment — something I’ve invested in personally. Let me start by saying that I do not work for Disney or DVC and that I am not at all being paid for or given perks for writing this post. This is a safe space where you’ll get only my personal…
