Military Disney Tips has grown from the humblest of beginnings to the large, very successful resource for military families that it is today. While I have put quite a bit of time and effort into the site, it’s you the readers who make the site so successful.
I wanted to take a moment to say thanks to all of you. I’m so appreciative of your interest, support, and contributions. It’s been my pleasure to try to help you in any way I can to plan for your Disney vacations.
Hang on to your hats, cause this will be a longish post, as I feel we have a lot to brag about this year…
With the growth of the site and its readership (on the site and blog, facebook, and the newsletter) has come a certain clout, which has allowed me to advocate to Disney for our community on both discounts and policies. Good things are coming, but more on that as the next year unfolds.
One positive change I was able to get initiated this past year, was a change in the way the Disney World Thanksgiving and Christmas Party military discounts are handled. Many military families used to miss out on this discount, as you had to get your discounted tickets in person and the party could be sold out by the time you arrived at WDW to get them.
