Since the moment I bought these beauties, I have been IN LOVE. Seriously. I haven’t loved a drink apparatus this much, ever. Let me tell you why they are perfect for Disney…..Read on.

There are several attractions at Disney World which garner little attention but are pure gold. The Pangani forest trail is one of those attractions.

I will tell you that this type of attraction is the heart of what Animal Kingdom is – Animals. The walking trails are a wonderful way to see animals you would most likely never see otherwise.

Should I Join Disney Vacation Club? Is It Worth It?Your Guide to Making the Decision to Join DVC

If you’ve spent any time around they Disney resorts, you’ve probably heard of Disney Vacation Club – also known as DVC. You may have seen the booths around the parks, the advertisements on the resort television, the plug on Disney’s magical express, or the resorts themselves popping up around the property. Let’s face it, DVC is growing and it’s getting bigger every day. The question I’m asking is – Do you really know DVC? Even if you’ve considered joining, do you really understand the benefits and just how much it could benefit you to join? It is a big decision to make, but it could be one that you never regret. The intention of this post is to un-cloud some of the mystery around DVC, help you understand what it is, tell you some of the facts, and help you decide if it’s right for you! I will say I’m a bit biased because I am a member and I think it’s one of the best decisions we ever made; however, I didn’t buy in immediately. We waited until the right time and now we are so happy we did. Read on for more if you’re curious or curiouser…….
