The Disney World Experience, Part 4 - Accommodations

When we booked our Disney trip, we didn’t consider too many hotel options. Once we made the decision to stay onsite, we looked at the cheapest Value resorts - All-Star Music, All-Star Movies and All-Star Sports. We had all but settled on All-Star Music when I found the Summer Quick Service Meal Offer.

The Disney World Experience, Part 3 - Food

Before reading too far into this post, I should first let you know that if you need details about many Disney World food establishments, you will not find that here.

As someone who likes the optimize as much as possible when it comes to vacation, I cannot stress enough that it's impossible to optimize fully the Disney experience (especially when your three children are 7, 5 and 2). There are so many variables that can happen during the day that over-planning can backfire. As our trip's primary planner, I divided my objectives into the following categories:

Our family just returned from Walt Disney World. While there are more comprehensive blogs and posts regarding WDW, I thought it might be worthwhile to include some of our experiences here. I'll try to keep them succinct, although I may go off on tangents, so be prepared!

Find Halloween stuff online

If you're like me and wish that one night in October, you could find enough people to reconstruct Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video, you're in luck. No, I don't have email addresses for backup dancers, but I do have a website for your Halloween needs.

HauntedHouse.com contains a national haunted house directory, links for costumes, games and even virtual haunted houses. I've seen a couple of different house directories, but this one seems to contain a larger number than others.

You must answer two extremely meaningful questions

It's scary to think there are just two questions that can determine your entire life outcome.

What's even more scary are the two questions:

1. Do you think Grimace, the big purple McDonald's guy, stands for cookies or a milkshake?

2. If bits of chocolate are normally called chips, are bits of peanut butter called peanut butter chips or peanut butter morsels?

Don't be like me and take circus peanuts for granted

I know who you called last night

I would assume you aren't naive enough to think your cell phone records are still private. True, I can't just pay a company to find out who you called, but ... oh wait. I CAN do that!
