Disney World is one of those places that most people love or hate. I happen to fall into the former category, but even if you fall into the latter, or don’t spend time focusing on Disney, a recent statistic I heard really surprises me. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic over the past 6 months, travel is down significantly. Disneyland in California hasn’t even reopened yet, though Disney World has been open for a few months now. For the past 20 years, Disney has had their own timeshare program, dubbed Disney Vacation […]
School will take on many different meanings for students across the country this year.

If you’re excited and crazy enough to think about going to Disney World during the Christmas season, there’s a new package that might just pique your interest.

Wow! What a crazy day. A quick recap if you’re just tuning in. My friend Summer (Mommy Points) and I decided to join forces to raise money for an incredible charity, Give Kids The World.
