There has been an influx of visits in the last couple of days due to interest at the disboards and other various websites. I would like to welcome you and quickly explain the purpose of this website and several of its less obvious functions. First of all, easyWDW.com is just over five months old and very much in its infancy. There is a lot of content I have planned in the coming days, weeks, months etc. and I would invite you to return and check for updates in the future. Unfortunately, I am a good 10-15 years behind the more established websites and can only do so much myself. Ideally, the goal is to become an online guide book of sorts where you can come to answer the majority of your questions about where to stay, what to eat, what attractions to see, what theme parks to visit and so on. Rather than only have a few words on a subject, I try to create original content with multiple points of view. Some of my favorites include “A How-to Walkthrough to Drinking Around the World at Epcot’s World Showcase” and the “Disney World Calendar of Crowds, Cost, Weather and Events.” The “Is It Worth It?” section also has a variety of articles including information about the Candlelight Processional, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, the No Expiration Ticket Option, and other topics. I have many more planned in the future.
One of the more helpful features of this website is the Crowd Calendars and Best Parks to Visit category to your right. You’ll find detailed information on a day by day basis of the resort room cost, historical high and low temperature as well as the chance of precipitation, crowd level estimation, best theme parks to visit, which theme parks to avoid, extra magic hours schedule, Fantasmic times, ride closures, and special events. In addition, be sure to click the “Continue Reading” button below the picture of the calendar to read a description of why the Parks are recommended the way they are and under what circumstances you should act differently. Visiting the recommended Parks will help you avoid the crowds and have a more pleasant touring experience.
Feel free to have a look around and check back for updates. Thanks and enjoy.
I already have 300 Disney websites bookmarked. My husband/wife/mother-in-law/dog already makes fun of me. I just can’t bookmark easyWDW I’m sorry!!!
Let me suggest that you create a new folder in your bookmarks titled something like “liverwurst recipes” or “mole removal pictures” and put all of your Disney websites in that folder. You could title easyWDW “liverwurst sandwich on pumpernickel” and be good to go for the foreseeable future.
You seem like a nice guy. But can I trust you? Where does all of this information come from!
That depends. Do you have a history of trust issues? I will always be there for you. I promise. All of the information on easyWDW is created from scratch based on the experiences of myself and others. I always try to offer multiple perspectives and don’t drastically change reviews based on one bad experience. There is a comments box on almost all posts. Please share your own experiences with others if you would like. Every opinion will help people decide what’s best for them. The whole purpose of this website is to help people make informed decisions about what is most likely to work for them. Very little about Disney World is “set in stone.” There is no true “best resort” for everyone and no “best restaurant” for all tastes, budgets, likes, and dislikes. I will always try to present factual information that will help you decide what is right for you and your group.
Where are the ads? Don’t you want me to purchase a vacation from a travel agency that is quasi-owned by you? Don’t you have some affiliate links you would like to trick me into clicking?
No, not at this time. EasyWDW.com is completely ad-free. There is no cost for any of the information, nowhere to input any personal information, and no button that automatically charges your credit card every time you click into a category. I would like to have an email newsletter at some point in the future. At that time, you may opt to add your email address. I am completely independent from the Walt Disney Company and have no relationship with any advertisers, travel agencies, or any other companies. I don’t push the Candlelight Processional because I get paid every time someone purchases a package. I recommend it because I think it may improve your vacation experience.
I am so happy I found this site. Are there more like it?
Absolutely. There is a wealth of information to enjoy beyond the standard MouseSavers, Allears, WDWinfo fare. Check out the Disney Bloggers Collection at http://disneybloggers.blogspot.com. It’s a list of more than 200 independently run blogs that cover a wide range of fascinating topics. It updates itself automatically whenever a new post hits the internet so you can always keep up to date with the latest news. Also check out http://www.dismarks.com. It’s sort of like a Digg.com for Disney related stories. You can vote on your favorite stories, submit articles you find interesting, and quickly find the most helpful information.
This doesn’t make any sense to me. Can you help?
Of course. If you see something that doesn’t make sense or would like to know more about a subject, please post a comment directly on the post or send me an email at the address located in the “about me” section above. One of the problems with writing about Disney World is that people have vastly different levels of knowledge. There are many people that can rattle off the entire menu at Le Cellier by heart and others who have no idea if Splash Mountain is a ride or a brand of portable misting fan. I always try to offer background to a subject in a way that will keep it interesting for people who “know it all” while at the same time providing a basic structure for those who are just starting out on their Disney learning expedition. I am not always successful and it’s okay if something doesn’t make sense to you. Please make me aware of any problems and I would be happy to correct them.
