WDW-40: 2016 / Disney Trip Report Index

Welcome to my 5th Disney Trip Report! I decided name this trip report WDW-40: 2016, because we were on holiday celebrating my 40th birthday! You can read all about the planning of this trip, and learn more about who we are in my Pre-Trip Planning Report here.

WDW-40: 2016 / Disney Trip Report Index

All [new] Disney content will be in full over on Disney Tips & Trip Reports, but there will always be a snippet of it here too! 

For all my Disney readers and fans out there, I hope you will join me too on DisneyTipsAndTripReports.com! I love my Disney website, and I hope you love it as much as I do! Because it’s my second blog, I don’t always have the time to do everything I want over there, so I thank you in advance for your patience as I write articles for that site. Most of my social media will remain the same, as it’s all me any way, but I do have a dedicated Facebook page for the new site. Please follow Disney Tips and Trip Reports on Facebook, on Instagram, and on Pinterest– these are all Disney focused (of course!)


There is more info in the trip report index on my Disney blog, which you can read here.
