    FREE Walt Disney World Dining Plan!

    What's the catch? It's limited to certain months, must buy 4-day park-hopper tickets, and you must either be a DIsney+ subscriber or you must have the Disney Visa Card. But, with all the $$$ you're spending on admissions and accommodations, having meals taken care of where they are usually...

    Free visit to Walt Disney World!

    Some time ago, I talked with a friend who said he and his wife took buses to drive around WDW, and I thought that was cool because it cost $0.00. Then, I saw a video on Instagram that said the same thing! So, here is how you could visit most DVC resorts and theme parks for nothing. You would...

    Complimenting Disney World Cast Members

    This is for anyone visiting the "Happiest Place On Earth", not just DVC owners. If you have a phenomenal experience, instead of giving them a tip (aka $$$), send them a compliment! You need the My Disney Experience app to do this. We're not allowed to take $$$ from anyone unless they persist...

    Walt Disney World DVC

    As I have posted elsewhere, I decided to post here for some clarity. If you are planning on staying at a DVC at Walt Disney World this year, let me know when you'll be here, which resort you're staying at (exceptions are Boardwalk and Yacht Club resorts - those do not have EPCOT to resort buses)...

    Video review of DVC Riviera Beach

    I always heard the most expensive resort was Grand Floridian, not Riviera, but I guess it's all about opinions. Like the "tower" rooms are not for a family staying a long time. But, one thing one of my trainers said, he loves Old Key West (OKW) because their suites are larger.

    Disney+ short explained

    Apparently, this project for Disney Corporation's 100th anniversary was a few years in the making, and leadership was thrilled! And based on reactions in Instagram and Facebook Reels, the most emotional part is where Mickey Mouse thanks an image of Walter E Disney. As a side note, I was talking...

    100 years ago today (10/16/23), history was made for kids (and kids at heart)!

    I don't care if you are 5 or 100, when you enter Walt Disney World, you are happy! Or, when you see Mickey Mouse (or any characters) in person. On 10/16/1923, brothers Walter (Walt) and Roy Disney founded The Walt Disney Company. TS

    Orlando's best restaurants

    TripAdvisor's readers have ranked the best restaurants, and several are in Central Florida. What is the common area? Walt Disney World! TS

    Walt Disney World specials

    I always hear the complaint that Walt Disney World is over $150/person. If you factor in food and souvenirs, it could get costly. Just like there are pages on the Internet that hand out discounts, do not forget to go to the source! Like this Fall, Florida residents can get a 4-day weekday-only...
