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.

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:

If you're in China, you might not be able to read this

Many people in Western culture are starting to take search engines for granted. I'm not talking about just having a computer and having access to the Internet. I'm speaking of what you can and cannot find in some of the top engines themselves.

See "Fahrenheit 9/11," form your own opinion

This is not meant to be for or against Michael Moore's controversial new film, "Fahrenheit 9/11," only an urging to see the movie. It seems to me that much of America has become complacent about their views of the country, even to the point of not really caring what is going on.

Now maybe some of you have a job where you just punch in and punch out and really don't care what's happening above you. Sometimes there's power in ignorance. I guess I just don't work like that.
