Timeshare Remodels Seem Better

I have been in quite a few of the DVC resorts before, and after their refurbishments.  The resorts do appear, and look different.  The latest refurbishment we were around for was Old Key West.  The most recent resort we stayed in after refurbishment was Animal Kingdom Villas. The rooms seemed to increase in space for some reason.  I am not sure if it was just changes in some of the furniture, or the fact that the tvs are now concealed on what appears to be peerless mounts in the furniture.  I have also found that the mattresses seem more comfortable.

Have you ever stayed at a DVC resort?  Which one?  How did you like it?

Advertising Has Gone A New Route

Have you ever watched a TV show, and noticed how many times they show a specific item?  Well, it is coming more noticeable that the TV show writers are finding ways to advertise products without even going to commercial.  Disney has gotten to be a master at this.  They always seem to find ways to plug the theme parks, vacations, and cruises into almost anything that they do.  One of these days Disney will figure a way to get rid of commercials all together with.  I say this because they seem to be ahead of everyone when it comes to doing things.

I would have never noticed the extent of the advertising if it wasn’t for my wife.  The other day she was watching a soap and the cast was talking about headaches.  The next thing you know they are telling about it, and zooming into the bottle.  My wife said that she has even seen one for getting rid of blackheads on nose positioned into a TV.  I am sure that this is a way to make a company happy because they not only got their commercials on TV, but now they are impacting people without forcing them to watch commercials.  We all know that commercials have gone by way of the wind since DirecTV got the dvr, and the other companies got TiVo, etc.…

Little One Loves Her Disney Princesses

Our little one gets almost anything that she asks for.  Sometimes Santa has to bring them, but she normally gets almost anything.  She asked for a Disney Princess tv many times.  Being an electronics tech I know what products usually do, and don’t work correctly, or for very long.  After we saw the tv at the store I made my notes to the wife that I am not particularly fond of any tv that has a dvd built into it.  For the size it looks like a nice tv, but that size won’t last forever with my little one anyway.  After reading up on many different tv reviews we decided against the tv.  We ended up recycling our bedrooms 42″ lcd to her.  Now we recently told her that if she wanted a princess tv that all she had to do was get some princess stickers, and do it up.  She didn’t find us very funny.

I guess she will have to listen to what is otherwise known as… “Father Knows Best”.

Disney’s “Must Do” Show

I have noticed in the past that people like to see the Disney tv shows that are broadcast to the resorts on property.

I have a treat for you.  I have recorded the “Must Do” show, and put it up for your viewing.  It is in 2 parts, so make sure you get to see both parts.

Sorry for the quality. I tried to get this the best that I could.
