    Pre-Trip A completely unexpected, yet very exciting, "work" related pre-trip report!

    I must preface this unexpected pre-trip report by stating I had no intention of visiting WDW in 2018 after we had such a great time in December 2017. Our plan has been to save up some of our DVC points and return in September 2019 when much of the park expansion work is completed. That said...

    Pre-Trip Canadian Dollar is Plummeting? Might as well head to WDW!

    Well, this wasn’t something I thought I would be writing for another couple years but after a bad Disney withdrawal hit both my wife and I, we decided to take a look into potentially booking yet another visit. We had planned to take a break from Disney this year after a WDW trip in 2014...

    Yet another DME question...

    Ok, I know there are a lot of questions about DME but I am asking yet another. I have been to WDW many times but have never used DME.

    What is the first thing you buy?

    Two years have gone by and this is my 1,000 post so I thought I should start a thread, even a lame one, to somewhat celebrate the occasion instead of having my 1,000 post take place in the trip countdown thread! I've been thinking a lot of our upcoming trip to the World in September and one...
