Dad is Retiring!

We’ll be closing this site on December 31, 2020.

As of June 2, 2020, we’ll no longer be updating content. But don’t worry - Dad’s friends can still help with all your Disney dreaming, planning, and booking needs!

Thank you for your support of Dad’s Guide to WDW for the past 11 years!

Today, September 16, 2016? Dad’s birthday? ah, nice thought, but no, that’s not until the end of the year. Disney related? No, not really. It’s a whole lot more fun that that.


There is one big event that happens today and because of that we are having a big giveaway. So what is it? A hint? OK, I’ll give you a hint…

Sep 23, 2016 Maybe if order cards now…
by: SuzyZee I can put on top of my Santa list- I want to smell the Gingerbread at Grand Floridian.
Second thought- since Dad has posted the Christmas cards- maybe if I order them now I can get my cards out before New Years or Valentine’s Day this year. I may have a hard time deciding what Disney cards I want to keep though for myself.
P..S. Christmas cards you receive make great gift tags for gifts- upcyle them.

by: mjf As a runner and a Christmas junkie – I am find that I am conflicted bc here in the American southeast Christmas = cold and an unhappy runner. . . . this year we are going to WDW for Thanksgiving and I am getting more and more excited every day. Thank you for your post bc it reminded me why I shouldn’t be bummed about the cold.
