Should I buy into Disney Vacation Club?

Author: Disney Diva Disney Vacation Club is one of the best money saving deals for families that visit Walt Disney World frequently! I know what you’re thinking… “Disney Diva” you smirk to yourself, “how can spending money save you money?” Well let me tell you my darlings, if I would have bought into Disney Vacation Club when we first started going I’d be staying on the monorail loop EVERY time now and not having to deal with 5 zillion people shoved into the All Star Resort buses at 12am post-fireworks. So, as you know, Nick the Disney Devo (tee) is a huge Disney Vacation Club guy. If you don’t know anything about it I suggest you read his great article on the Pros and Cons of DVC Membership.

Postcards from Disney World…….reviving a trend.

A selection of some of my favourite old WDW postcards.   I’d love you to revive the trend of sending holiday (vacation) postcards home and here’s why….. The personal touch – visualise Grandma’s face when she receives her carefully chosen postcard depicting your resort or a favourite Disney vista, all beautifully handwritten with a personal message, perhaps including the phrases “lots of love” and “Wish you were here” – now if that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy; just imagine how Grandma’s feeling.  Educational – by encouraging your child to:– choose and then purchase a postcard and stamp,– think about it’s journey and final destination, – compose and write the postcard to their teacher and classmates.Without knowing it your child will have learnt lessons in independence, numeracy, geography, literacy and improved handwriting skills.  Inexpensive – a cost effective way and tangible to say ‘I...

From A – Z, Disney planning TIPS that will help me and YOU!

Author: Canadian Diva I have to admit something to you, I’m practically a newbie compared to the rest of the Diva team who have been to Disney World and Disneyland hundreds of times.

So how will I be planning for my next trip? Without further adieu, here are the A – Z’s of what will help me and YOU…….. A – ALOHA! Well, the Spirit of the Aloha show at the Polynesian Resort!
