You’re Staying on Property?! Why? You’re a local? -M. Perkins

You’re Staying on Property?! Why? You’re a local? -M. Perkins 1 By Guest Contributor Michelle Perkins When I was in high school, I took my first trip to Walt Disney World with my grandparents.  I remember we stayed at a resort, it wasn’t on Disney Property, but at the time I didn’t realize that there was a property to stay on. I was not as well versed in Disney as I am now.  Years later when my parents took me to Disney to celebrate my college graduation, they arranged fo Continue Reading

We both had Disney ornaments on our Christmas trees as kids (we still have them now), we had our favorite characters, and when our daughter was born, we even themed her room in a mixture of E.H. Shepard and Disney Winnie the Pooh decor. And yet, we were not Disney People. Continue Reading

But if you are in no rush and take your time walking up Main Street you may be lucky enough to see some of the Main Street Characters. I recently met the Mayor of Continue Reading
