Getting Started

Hey folks! We’re in the process of getting everything up and running right now in the hopes that this blog will end up being a source of information for adults looking to take a different kind of Disney trip. Since this is the very first post, I thought I’d take a moment to introduce ourselves and elaborate on why we decided to start blogging.

As I wrote on the About Us page, we’re a married couple in our thirties who loves Disney. Both of us took trips to WDW back in the 80s when we were very young and it’s been a place that’s always stuck with us in our memories. Our first trip together was in January of 2014, about six months after we got married. We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge in a beautiful “Honeymoon room” on the Club Level floor and we were blown away by our entire experience. When we booked it, we booked the room over the phone with Disney Reservations at basically rack rate, with the deluxe dining plan, and had absolutely no clue what we were doing beyond that.

Since that first trip, we’ve learned a lot.

We love Disney Deluxe resorts. We adore Club Level at those resorts. We love dining at Disney, particularly what Disney refers to as “Signature” dining (although we don’t do the dining plan anymore for reasons we’ll discuss on a future post). Essentially what we discovered on that first trip set the tone for all our subsequent visits. We have, however, learned how to do these kinds of deluxe experiences smarter than before.

This blog won’t be for everyone, and we understand that. If you’re a park commando couple who only sleeps and showers in their hotel room, our resort information won’t likely be helpful. If you’re a big fan of renting DVC points and staying in a villa with a kitchen so you can cook meals while at Disney instead of eating out a lot, our restaurant reviews won’t be required reading for you. But we do hope that we can assist those of you who, like us, have had trouble finding the kind of adult- and couple-oriented information on Disney World that you’re seeking for your trip. Whether you’re going to WDW on your honeymoon, for an anniversary, a romantic weekend, a getaway with a best friend or sibling, etc, our tips and reviews will be oriented toward fun, unique stuff to do together. We also hope we can help dispel the myths surrounding WDW as a place suitable for vacations only if you have a young family in tow. Enjoy Disney as an adult sometime! The beauty of WDW is that there’s plenty of room for everyone, adult and kid alike, to have an amazing experience.

We’ll be adding more content soon. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us if you have questions or want to suggest something for us to write about in the future. You can email us here. Also, please follow us on Twitter and Instagram!

  1. I loved your comments about your Yacht Club stay and especially the sneak peak at the newly refurbished rooms there. My husband and I took a few trips to Disney before our 2 boys were born and we have had several trips as a family. But we finally did another trip with just the two of us in October, celebrating our 30th anniversary, staying at the Yacht Club club level. Enjoying Disney with just the two of us was a special experience and I look forward to reading your take on adult-only trips.

I’ve never stayed concierge level thinking that we wouldn’t get our moneys worth out it but you may have just convinced me. Waiting to see what you have to say about the DDP.

    1. Hey, it’s so great to meet you! Thanks for checking out our blog!! It’s always nice to meet more folks from Disboards. I’m actually working on a post about AKL CL for next week. WE LOVE AKL! I have nothing but good to say about it. I’ll definitely take a look at your TR, since AKL plus V&As is basically the perfect trip in my book!
