Our family bought into the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) in the mid-90’s and we immediately reaped the benefits – visiting Disney World multiple times a year with our DVC points when our sons were young. One purchase option that many don’t know about – instead of buying direct from Disney you can buy a DVC resale! The best DVC resale expert and broker we know is Shontell Crawford from DVCbyResale.com. We recently talked with Shontell to get the latest on DVC and the DVC resale market.

We came across this amusing video today from Disney featuring Darth Vader at Disneyland. Disney owns the Star Wars franchise (just announced this week). We are big Star Wars fans, and we look forward to what the creative minds at Disney can do with the series when a new Star Wars film comes out in 2015!
Disneyland’s California Adventure Theme Park a new ‘land’ recently opened to the public – Cars Land on June 15, 2012. Family Travel Gurus co-owner Anne Larison was fortunate to visit Cars Land the day before it opened to the public. “Fans of the Disney movie Cars will be thrilled with the theme of the rides, restaurants and merchandise options,” said Anne. “I had a blast and can’t wait to take my family to California to see for themselves.”
Thanks to our client Teresa from Missouri for sharing this trip report of her and her husband’s 7 night Disney Wonder Alaska cruise in June 2012.
We’re back from an extended cruise vacation and it is time to start blogging again! Here’s a video from Disney today showing the real Disney Dream (not a model or simulation) – the final “block” of the ship was put in place today. We can’t wait to sail on the Dream in January! (we’ll have a full report on our familytravelgurus website in February)
Last month Disney published a video that really captures the Disney cruise experience in just 2 1/2 minutes:
More details are slowly coming out about the new Disney Dream cruise ship, with her first sailing in January. Last week Disney announced a 2nd “adults only” restaurant, Remy, that they describe as “the Victoria and Albert’s at sea”. Remy will be in addition to the long time Disney favorite Palo on the Dream.
