You’re Going To WDW For The First Time – How Do You Even Start To Plan?! Here Are Some Tips

With over 20,000,000 visitors in 2017 alone, Walt Disney World (WDW) is the undisputed leader in theme park attendance. It’s a huge complex, with four major theme parks, over 140 restaurants, over twenty five hotels, three 18-hole golf courses, two full-sized water parks, a miniature golf course, a shopping district, special events galore, and dozens of other options packed into a resort that encompasses nearly 25,000 acres or just shy 40 square miles.

For those who visit WDW on a regular or even semi-regular basis, they learn how to negotiate everything that the resort has to offer. But for newbies who have never been before, or who haven’t gone in decades, planning their WDW vacation can be a daunting and even overwhelming task.

Single Disney Park Fan Looking For Love or Friendship? There’s An App For That!

There have been “match” websites on the internet for almost as long as there’s been an internet.  You have the regular ones, like Match.com, eharmony, OkCupid, Tinder, etc. But there are also some niche sites, such as Grindr, Christian Mingle, BeNaughty, Dating For Muggles, my420mate, Trekdating, PinkCupid, MatchGeeks and JewishMatch.
