The last time I did this was 22 years ago.
My addiction to Disney had hit new heights. I lived in New Jersey and traveled to Disney as often as I could. My every waking minute was spent thinking about, planning, strategizing, reading, watching and consuming all things Disney. That ‘addiction’ led me to start a small website as a way to share my passion for something I loved. I called it the DIS, and the site became more than I ever could have imagined and changed my life in ways that are still difficult to describe.
That was 1997.
Fast forward 22 years and I find myself in a familiar place. Having only recently bought into DVC for the first time, I find myself reliving the kind of excitement that originally led me to Disney. I’m finding it difficult to put that into words, and even more difficult to explain. It’s not that I didn’t know about DVC before now. It’s not like I’ve ‘discovered’ some secret gem or anything. Why I’m having this kind of emotional reaction eludes me, but as I’ve learned over the years, sometimes it’s better to accept and lean in then to try and figure it out. So, here I am, a proud owner at Copper Creek (and Boulder Ridge and Bay Lake Tower and Beach Club). Yeah, when I said ‘lean in’ I meant ‘dive in head first’.
I can’t honestly tell you what I want this site to be, other than a blog about thoughts and experiences with DVC – both mine and others. I can get into a mindset that says I have to plan out every aspect of a new project to within an inch of its life – but for this, I feel the need to just go wherever it takes me. I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
