Pre-Trip Report - 35 days to go before our split stay at BLT and BWV in a two bedroom suite. Three Cheers for Walt !!! Walt Disney followed his passion for animation as a young man from a small mid-western town. I doubt his parents appreciated his choice of profession. As a successful animator, he had a passion and dream to provide a place where families could go and enjoy themselves. They made a bunch of mistakes that made the opening of Disneyland a bit challenging. Are we glad he followed his passion? Critics and Fans When I enthusiastically tell people about my passion for vacationing at WDW or my DVC purchase, I don't always get a warm response. Some people go to WDW for a "couple" days and never go back. When my DW and I first went to WDW, we were "moved". Both of us growing up had friends that went to Disney World with their parents but we never could afford it. We watched the World of Disney on Sunday nights and dreamed of making the trip to Florida to see Mickey Mouse. We have a deep gratitude and appreciation for this place that Walt built. With DVC, we enjoy sharing it with others who might not otherwise get a chance to experience it. It's our passion and we get a ton of "mileage" out of our excitement to go and memories we talk about all year long. I could talk on and on with fellow fans at work or with a neighbor about Disney World. Many folks are also passionate about it and some are not. Live Your Passion Pursuing and living a passion is what makes life fun. If you want to be passionate about something, you have to find it and then do it. The more you do it, the more passionate you become and the more you enjoy it. If you own DVC, embrace it and enjoy it to it's fullest! To me, it's much more than a timeshare property.
