Follow me on:


Travelling with children, money saving tips, WDW resorts, WDW dining, Theme park questions. I have also done WDW in an ECV so I can answer some questions re: trips with injured or handi-abled people.

Experience in the area

Extensive travel to WDW (16 trips and counting) with children ranging from 2 to 19.
My motto is "Been there, done that, going back!" I am also a moderator at www.wdwplanner.com, and a frequent contributor to discussion boards at wdwmagic,preservethemagic, passporter,wdwblues,and The Mouse For Less. I can also offer some assistance with Disney weddings/honeymoons, WDW with disabilities or injuries.

What do you like about this subject?

Disney fanatic----Mickey is my main man! I also love the little details that Walt and his team envisioned to make a WDW vacation a total experience!

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Still trying to eat my way around "The World." Disney would make this MUCH easier if they would hold off on new restaurants for a few years!!!!

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

There are MANY Magical Touches to be found at WDW. Did you know additional Princess meals have been added? Did you know there is a Pirate's Treasure Cruise for kids? A free Lady Bug release? Pony rides? Ask me about the Photo Pass system and the Photo Pass movie and CD!!!!!!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

The Mouse House has seen some unrest the last few years under the leadership of the former CEO. I would like to see WDW (and the Disney Company) restored to the level they achieved in "the glory days" of the late 80's-mid 90's.My hope is that the current management team and the Board of Directors can get back on the same page to continue Walt's legacy and do what they do best: MAKE MAGIC HAPPEN!

Hi Mike.      Sorry for the late response. Not sure what happened.       It is against Disney policy to bring food into the parks. Security officers may look the other way if a person brings "a few sandwiches"

Hi Donna!     Sorry to be so late answering your question; it seems it never reached my mail box the first time it was sent :(     In my opinion, Passporter is hands down the best Disney guide book--and

2013-02-10 Dining reservations:

Hi Bob.     Quick questions: Is this your first stay at The Polynesian? By "DDP" do you mean "Disney Dining Plan" or "Deluxe Dining Plan"? Let me know and I can give you a much better answer!

2012-04-02 Tickets:

Thayer,     I would suggest contacting Disney Guest Services. Disney is usually very good about this type of thing, but technically, tickets are non-transferable. You said they were purchased "many years
