How I can afford to go to Disneyworld

I travel to Disney World at least twice a year. I live on a fixed income and don't work. I make extra money by doing Swagbucks. I live in Arizona. I don't own a house or car. I get rid of my credit cards. I have a Pre Paid Card it's the Bluebird card and it is sold though Walmart. It's backed by American Express so it doesn't have fees.

After all my bills are paid I put $300 each moth on the card. I budget out 4-5 months ahead of time. When I have $1200 budget out I start planing a trip. During this time I'm checking airfares. When I see a cheap airfare I start getting my Disney Plans made.

I fly on Southwest Airline. They have good fares and don't charge for bags. The flights that leave in the mornings don't get on the late afternoon so I take on of the late flight. These flights leave in the afternoon and get in  early morning. The booking doesn't start until the time I get to MCO so I have to spend some time at the airport before getting to go to the resort. I can spend 3-4 hours at the airport so I do have pillow so I can sleep.

I have a Annual Pass so I don't have to buy tickets so I book a Room Only.

When I come to Shopping and Eating I do buy two Gift Cards. I buy them before I go because I get fuel points that I friend that drives me get to use.


Doing Swagbucks I can make $100 a month so when I make $400 I can pay for my airfare.

It is possible to go to Disney World when living on a budget.

Daniel's Jewelry Review

A while ago I went into this store to look around while I was in there a woman keep telling me about the credit card I told her many times that I wasn't interested but she didn't stop. I applied for it just to make her stop. I got it even with a low credit score. Found out later that this was though In House Credit and the rate was 29.99%. If I knew about in I wouldn't done it. I ordered a ring but it had to be ordered. Within 7 days I got a bill saying I had to make a payment with 10 days. I never got the ring and they want me to pay for it? CRAZY!

I went to Yelp to make a review and that got the attention of the Head Office. After telling this guy what happen I told him that I wanted to return the purchase and have the charge taking off but they couldn't do it. The guy said that I could go back and get the charge taken off. I will do this in a few days.

I will never do business with this company. Their jewelry is cheap looking.

Cast Members


Disney calls the people that work her Cast Members. In All the years I have been coming I have been able to talk to a lot of them. I'm my life at home I won't talk to another people for days, Sometime longer. So I look forward to having chats with CM's. I have some of the best chats. S lot of them love to talk to people. They are there to help in anyway they can. Each CM wears a name tag with their first name and the place that they are from.

In all my year coming to Disney I have met a lot of CMs. A lot of they are here on the Collage Program and can be here for a limited stays. There are a lot that have been here for years. I have met some that have been here since day one. 45 years that is rare here. If they have been have for more that 5 years they are Old Timers. Talking to these people is real fun. They are Cm's that I make a point to seeing. Since I stay at POP there is a woman that has been here for 30 years. She only worked some other job but a lot of it is at POP. Her name is Tammy. She has dark curly hair. If you ask anybody "Where's Tammy?" they will tell you. I make it a point talk to when I get here and say Bye to her when I go home.

This trip I make so friends that I will be looking for when I come back. A woman who name is Kim, she work at Animal Kingdom. She is at Island Merchet, She is a older retired nurse that has been here for a few years. We would talk about the health benefits to coming to Disney. She told me what shops she works and told me the next time I come to find here,

At EPCOT I met is guy. He is a good looking black man. When I first started talking to his I said, "Your a tall drink of water!" He never herd that phase before and when I told him what it means he cracked up laughing. I asked him how long he has been married,I saw a nice looking wedding ring. He said 21 years. Now Days that is along time. I told him that when he get home he should write down this memory. People like me don't come around a lot. Also I told him he should tell his wife what I said. I know that she will give him the look and then start laughing.His name is Rodrick. He is part of the DVC and tried so hard to get me into this. I told he it wouldn't work and why.

At Magic Kingdom there is a guy who play the piano at Casey's corner. He is very famous. he wear a blue name tag. This is only given out to outstanding CM's. He was play the piano and noticed my birthday button. He said "Hey it's Sara's Birthday so let sing Happy Birthday to her." So everyone sung Happy Birthday to me. That made me feel so good to have this happen. A bunch of strangers all singing Happy Birthday. That will  remember for a long time.

The best for last is the College Program kid that are in EPCOT. These people are from other country. They love to here about other places in the US and teaching about their.country. I will never see these people again so their name are many.


The Cast Members are the best thing about coming to Disney!     

New Rooms Pop Century

At Pop Century they remolded the rooms. I was lucky to get in one. There are only 3 buildings that have been done. The rooms are totally redone. Everything is brand new.  Also they added a coffee maker to the room. In other Value Resorts there isn't a coffee maker.


/The old room have two double beds. This makes the room feel small. It has a feel of being in a Motel 6. Since I travel alone it work out very well but I can't see a family of four in that room.

The new room has a queen size and a Murphy bed. When the Murphy is up it is a table with two chairs. Having this set up opens up the floor space. The feel is like beings at home. It has a small fridge and a coffee maker that also has all the things to make coffee. Now the type of coffee isn't the best but it is there.

The bath has been redone. From the sink to the bathtub is brand new. The sink is much bigger and has better hard wear. The bathtub is still small. It you have kids it will work good but for a adult it doesn't work. It now has two shower heads. The big shower head is good size and has a rain feel to it. The other is a hand held.

The carpet is gone so it is a hard wood floor but it's not real wood. So it isn't load walking around.

They use a White Color of paint. This give it a clean look.

The dresser is large. It has three large drawers. It also has the safe and the safe it a key pad locking so no dealing with having a key.

The outlets are different. It has the two plugs plus two USB ports so it makes it easy to charge things up.

Now the best for last, the TV. This can make of break a room. It is now a large 55 inch TV. Well it is bigger than the TV that I have at home a 32 inch.


The new rooms don't make you feel in a motel but in a hotel.

As of this writing they have 3 building done, But the project should take a year. The target date is 5/18 to have the resort done.

Dreams Destored

 These time are very dark. I keep up with what is going on in the whole but now it looks very dark. I have worked hard to get the things that I have. But now there is a person in Washington DC that wants to take that all away. The things that I have gotten has been a long road to travel. Right now I'm on a trip that I have been looking forward to it for months is starting to look as being  a nightmare. When I go on my trips I go to help with making my life look better. But this trip hasn't been great. I go on this trip to forget all the stress of the outside world but not this trip. My depression goes away while I here, but the nightmare is still here,

I don't have a great life. I don't live a life of the American Dream. My life is life of horrors. A lot people think that I life is great. I don't work and I have gotten a lot of things to live on. To most people I'm just freeload. But they don't know the horror that I have been though. I don't wish this on anybody. I just have to live with me. It is a matter of time when all the thing that I've worked on get.


Things have to change. And the big thing to get rid of a person that is the leader of this country. this man needs to be stopped before he destroy peoples life.  I will not be able to handle the next four years, Stop this man.


IMPEACH Him NOW!

My Last Halloween Party

Last night I went to the Halloween party and it was so crowded. The lines to do anything were long. On top of it it being to hot. I had to leave early because I wasn't feeling well. My meds had wore off and I was in so much pain. I could barely walk. Walking back to the bus was the worst. It took me 45 minutes to walk back to the bus. I would past Cast Members and none of them could see that I was in pain. I did get photos with Jack and Sally. I had a great time interacting with them. I told them that nothing scares me. Jack couldn't understand that. I'm that the type of person that I have no emotions. I did get alot of pictures of my time with them. After that I walked around to the trick or treat station. That was a nightmare too. The long were too long.

As much as I love Halloween I won't be going to the party again. Sadly the night was cut to short. I din't get too much candy as I hoped for. It was too hot and crowded.

A very big disappointment! I won't be going back.

Doing Swag Bucks while on Vacation

When I go on vacation I take my laptop. I always do my Swag Bucks  when I'm gone. I don't do as much as I do at home just so long as I get to the first Goal. Since SB's clock is on Pacific time and I'm in Florida there is 3 hour difference.

How I work it is I will get up 4-5 am and I will get my laptop going. I will do it least two hours and when I get back for the evening that can be anytime between 9-12 am. I can do a couple hours before going to bed.

I can get as set of videos going while I go to take my shower  or if I make a run to the food court to fill my water bottle.
