Disney During COVID: Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of our favorite places to visit. It has a wonderful atmosphere and an entire savannah full of animals. It is a hotel built around a zoo. I’m going to give you my thoughts after our one night stay in June 2020.
We are headed home from a two-night stay at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. Today is June 21st just for reference. I would call this post COVID travel, however, COVID is still very much a concern and on the rise in some places in Florida. Let’s call this mid-COVID travel?
I am recently back from the most magical place on earth and battling the Disney blues by reliving some fantastic new memories. During our last visit, Ben and I were able to enjoy a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) perk called Moonlight Magic at Animal Kingdom — and it sure was magical!

What in the world is renting DVC points? DVC is short for Disney’s Vacation Club. This is Walt Disney’s version of a time share. If you have questions about what DVC is, start here. Kim has broken the basics down for you over several articles. I’m going to lay out how to how to stay in a deluxe resort for less, without being a DVC owner.
Though not flanked by a Haunted Mansion, Aulani is still unmistakably “Disney.” Among other things, that means the Imagineers who worked on the resort put care into every design choice made. It also means guests can take tours to learn more about those decisions!
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. Here we go into the Polynesian Resort Deluxe Studio Review. Convenience There’s something especially magical about staying at a resort on the monorail loop. Even though the monorail could use a good sprucing, it’s inherently “Disney,” and the easy access it…
Welcome to another week of 'This Week in Disney!" This week was chock full of new and exciting things! New ride updates, new Disney policy changes, and another quick service is going towards the reservation system. Read all about it and more in this weeks news!
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…
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.

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…
