It seems that all the bloggy moms are a-twitter on Twitter about Disney World these days. Did something happen and I don't know? Everyone was going to Disney World with their kids! I feel left out. :'(
Oh well, my teen and adult kids probably wouldn't have wanted to go, anyway. They are a bit too old for Disney World. I went with a friend when I was 14 years old. It seems like EONS ago. Florida was SO hot, I felt like I was going to melt (I went in July!). It was a very fun experience, my first time away from home. But you could spent days at Disney World and not see everything. I didn't have any kind of guide or guidelines.
Today's visitors have a bastion of resources at their disposal from the Internet, like ShopWiki's How to Plan a Disney Vacation. Yeehaw. The article is jam-packed with tips on when is the best time to go, seasonal events, necessary travel essentials, brush up on all the Disney films so your eyes aren't swimming when you get there, hotels, everything. They also have articles on Disney collectibles (I still have my old locket necklace that I bought while there- it cost me a whopping $10 at the time!)
In case you've never heard of ShopWiki, it's a huge Internet shopping resource. They don't sell products, they direct you to products for sale on the web. What's unique about them is that they show EVERYTHING for sale, not only the stores that pay for placement on the search engine results. So ShopWiki is very comprehensive. And their travel articles are very good.
Well, looks like Disney World is out for us (and it's way over our budget, anyway), but we are happy with our own type of travel plans. More on that in the very near future!
