Welp. I have always wanted to give this blogging thing a go, but just never got around to it. I never knew what in the world I would want to blog about. I definitely did not want to have one of those inwardly pensive blogs that would honestly be better kept locked up tight inside of a personal journal and then burned upon death. You know the type. Those blogs that are filled with the abstract thoughts of the blogger, polka-dotted with big words you feel compelled to look up in Websters Dictionary, and that leave you feeling confused, shallow, and thinking that the composer of all this is slightly mad and might need medication. I also am not the type to have the home improvement/fashionista blogs. I enjoy those things on some level, but thinking about writing about them in some new and creative way, which you inevitably must do to be successful at it, stresses me out. A spiritually inspiring blog? No…that is incredibly personal to me, and I am definitely not fit to preach a sermon…
Then it hit me.
It hit me smack in the face while I was on vacation.
Why not a Disney blog??
After all, everyone that knows me and my family even the tiniest bit knows that we are Disney obsessed. We go at least once a year and dream about going the rest of the year. I tend to get a Facebook message once every few months from friends or acquaintances who have never gone before or are going for the first time in a long time asking for advice. So why not start a blog to share all of that? I can chronicle my fun family holidays, along with offering up advice and some inside Disney secrets!
“Yeah!” I thought to myself, “That’s what I’ll do!”
So with the support of my husband, Tim (he may make a few blogger post appearances) I am starting this blog today. Elrods Go Disney. And to jump right in I would like to tell you why.
So many people ask us….WHY DISNEY??
WHY year after year, sometimes several times a year, do you repeatedly go to Walt Disney World for vacation? Don’t you want to go other places? See new things?
Well, honestly…no. The hard cold fact is that we love going to Walt Disney World because it is simply the best and most memorable family vacation that we could take at the price that we pay. We never run out of things to do (I have been more times than I can count and STILL have not done everything Walt Disney World has to offer) and we know that the quality of our vacation is never going to be questioned. In my humble opinion, Disney has by far the cleanest facilities, nicest employees, and most enjoyable attractions around. When we plan a Disney vacation, we KNOW we are going to have nice accommodations, no matter what price point we stay at on property, great food, first class treatment from the Disney cast members (aka. Disney employees), and something fun to do for everyone in whole the family.
We love Walt Disney World. It is our home away from home…and that is why the Elrods go Disney!
