A Kick in the Teeth

You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

– Walt Disney

This page came to fruition at my lowest, most hopeless point where I said “F it, talking about Disney World will cheer me up!!” So here I am, channeling my energy into sharing some of my Walt Disney World knowledge and hopefully helpful tidbits. There will be many passive aggressive bitter old lady comments thrown in, I am sure, because … hey that’s me, what can ya do? 🙂 take it all with a grain of salt and hopefully it never comes off as whiny, but just the right amount of bitter, if there is such a thing.

General background (keeping it brief to keep the mystery alive and/or save myself some dignity in real life, but I’ll provide more background to the wedding story as time passes): I’m basically a lifelong Disney vacation club junkie. I’m in my 30s now with a 2 year old son (let’s call him Copper… because who doesn’t love the fox and the hound…) and my family purchased a DVC membership at the Boardwalk in 1996 (back when it was $65/pt, what!!?). I will definitely be sharing some DVC related posts, particularly related to point management and booking strategies since that is a favorite hobby of mine, especially with all those rooms needed for the big day! 🙄

I am an out of stater who has visited WDW 40+ times, staying predominantly at the Boardwalk Villas but also staying at least once at Caribbean Beach, The Polynesian, Grand Floridian, Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge, and Animal Kingdom Lodge. I have visited as a kid, as a teenager, as a childless millennial, and now as a mom of an infant/toddler, so I can provide insight on trip strategies from just about every perspective (except the obnoxious newlywed endlessly wearing bride ears and a bride tshirt perspective apparently).

Key takeaway: I’m just a WDW nut and even at my lowest time, Disney makes me happy, hence its magic, so hopefully this can be a source of useful information to someone out there. Hey maybe I can even throw in some wedding planning posts, because plan we did, wed we did not.
