It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes multiple communities to educate a Disney fan. Here are links to some of my favorite websites and online communities. These are the places I go to learn, to share and sometimes just to hang out.
AllEarsNet covers, well, everything really, about Walt Disney World in a level of detail sure to please the most OCD of us. I love this website and look things up here at least weekly.
DVCinfo.com is one of the newer Disney sites. This is the place to go for information on the Disney Vacation Club (DVC). Well organized, up to date information on all of the resorts as well as the process of buying or renting DVC points make this site one to bookmark and revisit repeatedly.
MomApprovedFacebook is one of the nicest of the Disney facebook groups. It is a group of moms helping other moms with trip questions, suggestions and tips. This is a very safe place to go ask any Disney related question. I enjoy it a great deal & try to post here at least once a day. Please say hi if you see me there!
MouseOwners is the site for anyone looking to rent DVC points. The Rent/Trade/Transfer board is unique in my experience. This is basically a free service that sets up a marketplace for DVC owners and renters to connect. This site also has a great deal of useful information built over a long period of time. It takes a little digging to get to the information. If you have a sense of humor and a taste for snark, it is one of the best Disney communities around.
MouseSavers is the go-to starting point for anyone trying to plan a Disney vacation on a budget. I find myself there at least once a month to double check a potential discount, look for new information and see what’s new. If you want advice on the best ways to save money on your trip, this is the site for you.
MouseSteps is a pair of commentators who put out a weekend show on different theme park related items for Orlando. I enjoy watching their shows. The webpage also has a great deal of information, but the shows are what keeps me coming back.
