The FTC has called for better disclosure of any payments or freebies related to reviews for products.

The short version is that none has been used in this site, although I have a couple of affiliations noted at the bottom of the page.

No free or loaned products or services, special rates offered only to me,  or any other such deals have been used in accessing the experiences or formulating the instructions, the recommendations, the rankings, or any other material on this site, the Walt Disney World Instruction Manual at

  • In June 2011–after recommending them for more than 3 years–I entered into a relationship with If you buy one of their paid products through a link from this site, I get a little pixie dust back from them.
  • In November 2011, became a sponsor of this site.
  • In September 2013 I entered into an affiliate relationship with Steve Bell around his e-book on Shades of Green, the Armed Forces resort at Walt Disney World.
  • In January 2016, I partnered with Official Ticket Center, so if you buy tickets from them via a link from this site, they spread a little pixie dust back to me.
