blog post- 3: Studio or 1-Bedroom? *Disney Rooms*

What we are about to say is a comment not agreed upon many within DVC communities, however, we will go on and say it anyway. Unless you plan on doing a "resort only" stay and plan on spending much time in your room, getting anything bigger than a Studio as a couple or party of 4 is unnecessary. Studio rooms on property are not huge rooms. They have two beds, a mini fridge, a kitchenette, a bathroom, some other amenities within the room and that's it. But, to be honest, that's all a couple or a family of 4 really needs; it's plenty. We are part of many Disney online communities, and the mutual consensus is that "once you stay in a 1-bedroom, there's no going back to a studio". Although we do agree that staying in a 1-bedroom not only gives you more space, but also offers more convenience, it does not justify the grand point difference per night. You can stay at a studio for 30 pts/weekend, and stay at the very same resort and spend more than double that (78-98 points/weekend, depending on the type of 1-bedroom and if you're staying in preferred or not) for a 1-bedroom, WHICH SLEEPS THE SAME AMOUNT OF PEOPLE as a Studio!

blog post- 2: Disney. Safe during covid?

When the pandemic hit worldwide, the entire country (just about the entire world) shut down. People were frightened, clueless, hysterical and just emotional. We knew very little about the virus, other than that it was one which would kill you, if contracted.

Today, February 17th, 2021, we know that the survival rate of this virus is significantly higher than the rate of which people are dying; most people survive the virus.

blog post- 1: Honeymoon and DVC

I had no idea just how complicated and demanding planning a trip to Disney can (...and should) be. "What do you think about going to Disney for our honeymoon?", asked my wife. Being a Disney lover, I of course responded in the affirmative. I did not help her much, I did not give her much insight or ideas on how to make this trip special, but she did it all. She planned a 5 day/6 night honeymoon of a lifetime! People found this fact very surprising, but this would be my first trip EVER going to Disney World. Disney has always been something I loved. Growing up, I was under the impression that Disney was a place where rich people went during the summer. I was not rich, so we (my family) never went, nor did we vacation much at all to begin with.
