Florida Resident Disney Vloggers on YouTube

It is all about engagement now and demographics, since your son hasn't posted a video in a long time, his engagement dropped, The trackers have very high engagement and subs. Plus they are seeing much more than 20 million views a month.
Le what?

@Phil12 Even for those rare few that get a video to go viral, the truth is that even if they have one, they won't have made a cent off of it. If they don't have 1000 subs and over 4000 hours of views in the year before, they won't make a cent off of that video. Maybe you should actually talk to people who do and have done YouTube to get some truths about what's involved instead of making silly assumptions. :cool:
It's really not too difficult:

I enjoy watching Beth from Streaming the Magic. I think she has a great voice and personality. And she does not have diarrhea of the mouth when she is on attraction, or even when she is just walking around. Nothing more annoying is a Vlogger talking constantly when I am trying to hear (enjoy) what is being said or not said on an attraction. There is one I just can't watch anymore. But I think she does a great job. JMO

MartinsVidsDotNet, WorldofWalt, ThemeParkOhana, RetroWDW, Widenyourworld, and thedailywoo (adamthewoo) are my favorites. DFB is good too. ResortTV1 is kinda annoying with the donations. Not necessarily all listed are vloggers but yt channels.

I've been watching resorttv1 ever since they pretty much started doing live streams but now it's getting unbearable to watch half an hour of it.
If you watch a live stream you constantly hear we have a super chat, we have a PayPal, share us out hit the like button.

They said they would do it for free and they are doing for fun but they constantly ask people to share, subscribe, like, thumbs up and try to reach as many views as possible also they ask people to watch on another device and people to create multiple accounts to subscribe and like the video. If I was doing YouTube videos for fun I wouldn't ask anybody to subscribe or like the video because I'm doing it for fun. I would prefer to get the success naturally than to beg plus it makes the videos better.
It's all about the money with them mostly Josh he comes off very desperate.

Another thing that's very annoying is constant repetitive words like hashtag this hashtag that.

If you look at his early videos he wasn't a Disney person. What he quickly realized however was that his Disney videos had alot more views than his "Hot girl" or other attention grabbing videos. So that's kind of how he started to do more and more Disney videos.
My wife has been watching the tim tracker for the last couple weeks. She went back to the beginning of his channel and it was zero Disney, uni, theme parks... she asked why he started covering Disney. I said most likely views. So we went through his videos. Up to his first Disney vid I could find, he averaged 1k to 3k views. His first Disney vid, 37k.

I enjoy his persona, and its nice to see his parks content, but he's getting comped so much now, I can't take his opinions seriously anymore.

She's not a Florida resident (Texas, I think), but my wife and I enjoy AJ Wolf's Disney Food Blog. Despite the name, she videos encompass far more than Disney food, but this is probably her most frequent topic. Her videos are very professionally produced, and although she might be a bit more rah-rah Disney than some might prefer (ie, she never complains about the yeti or demands the return of Horizons), we find her very informative and downright pleasent.

Yea, that is the big problem with a lot of vloggers. In one of the recent videos of a new restaurant, his wife bit into her food. He then asked what did you think? She said yea, it was good. But her face told a different story. So you could tell they were very gun shy about saying anything bad. Its not just Tim but I saw so many have the same reaction to blue milk. Yea its great! With a face that said meh.

It's a hard line to walk. When a park or company invites you in on their dime, part of the deal is that you're there to help them look good. But at the same time you also don't want to jetison your integrity or honesty. Some have an easier time than others doing it. And the more you receive from the parks, the harder it is to be critical when appropriate

Yeah Tim really had no interest in Disney but Tim was smart enough to realize a good thing.

But thats kind of how it Works innit, you try a bunch of things till you Find your niche.

There's a name for that. Shill. They are often found on carnival midways.

I don't find her rah-rah Disney. She often points out critical things, particularly among the restaurants (which is her wheelhouse, obviously). She will usually say it gently, and not with the Internet Snark to which we've all become accustomed, but she seems to really make sure people don't waste money.

Which is why I like the approach the folks at The DIS take. They will attend media events and other things where they get in for free. But they will never do a review based on those. They just document and report on those. And they disclose whenever they're getting something for free. When they do a review, be it a dining review or a hotel review or whatever, they are paying for it. And if you've ever watched their dining reviews, you know that they are not afraid to be negative or the criticize Disney.

They don't mind THEM being negative. But don't you dare express negativity if you're a mere poster... it might cut into their travel agent business.

This is what a lot of us do. If I'm there at an event (such as an opening) then I'm "reporting"- showing what's there, talking about the ride/ attraction/ etc does and doesn't do, what's offered, things that are good to be aware of, etc. And honestly that's what most of the vlogs out there are- is exploring, showing, and reporting.

Reviews (really evaluations) are a different thing. They are specifically to talk about not only the positive, but also to look for the negative. You aren't showing what is there as much as you are deliberately looking for good and bad to report on, and then give your opinion on it.

A lot of viewers don't understand the difference, and they get upset or call out people as "shills" because their purpose is to report, not review/ evaluate. We may be "reviewing" what is there, but it's not whether to review if it's good or bad, it's to show it off so others can see.

It's actually been amusing sometimes as I've been called a shill, sellout, etc because I rarely talk about negatives in my videos. It's not because I'm receiving anything from the parks (honestly I rarely do) but because I genuinely enjoy almost everything out there and I much prefer to have a positive outlook to my videos. There are many other vloggers who take a similar approach.

And it won't satisfy those that want, crave, desire, or insist on negativity, and think that anything that doesn't have it must be caving into the parks. You know what- that might be completely off base and not based in reality, but that's ok. I've no desire to stoop down to that "reality"- I'll let them keep it while I and other vloggers keep enjoying what we do.

Because that's the simple truth of it- you're not going to be vlogging, visiting, talking, etc so much about the parks if you don't enjoy it. And I don't need their negativity to interfere with my enjoyment. :)
