A Year of Disney

A Year of Disney is written for fellow Disney fans who might want a sneak peek at what it is really like to take a family vacation at Walt Disney World any month of the year.  This is an easy to read, conversational approach to sharing who to do….and what not to do….for the best possible experience.   You will not find another series of lists or top ten suggestions.  Instead, you will get the real ups and downs of different ways of vacationing at the Happiest Place on Earth.  Come join us as we try to fit in as many difference experiences as possible in one Annual Pass!

Would you like to know why we came very close to never coming back to Walt Disney World after the first trip?  It’s in the introduction! How about more on the worst kept secret at Disney, the Disney Vacation Club, including little known tips for saving money by renting points instead of buying into the Club?  It’s in a bonus section!  Have you ever considered tent camping at Fort Wilderness, the Disney campground in the Magic Kingdom area? Yes, that’s right – get the ins and outs of this in the November chapter.

And here, just for blog readers, are little excepts from every chapter in the book PLUS photos from those trips.  Because sometimes a picture really is worth 1,000 words.  Enjoy!
