Im not a big Star Wars fan, as a child I loved the originals but the new ones I could take or leave, however Im looking forward to seeing the theming.
Re Disney vloggers, sorry call me a spoil sport but cant be doing with any of the UK ones, fame seems to have gone to some of their heads, fair play though getting Disney trips funded.

Its not all rosy at their company though as recently they had to let go some staff. I know they are going to downsize their proper home but its not that big in the first place, I suspect that it's more to funding their Disney trips. They are only going on a 5 week trip as the park where the lodge is is closed for most of that time and they would have had to go back to their 'home' otherwise.

I think the nearest town (city) to them is Beverley - they seem to spend a lot of time there.

Before it opened, people on here were expecting queues starting in the State of Georgia to get in to Hollywood Studios - I would be interested to see how much the attendance has increased? I think Toy Story Land was more popular😀

Or the fact they buy ready meals every day, or nearly everyday. Along with the coffee and fruit tea cakes. They must spend a fortune on fuel going to different towns every day.

They aren't funded to go to Disney, well apart from patrons.

They also sold their other lodge last year and are downsizing the house as they live in the lodge 11 months a year

I was curious about this Tim Tracker sweater reference and googled it and got this; Did he really spend $1900 on this?! Wow he must be making good money. Sorry, this is off topic. Maybe we should start a new thread about Vloggers.

I nearly chocked on my tea when I watched that vlog. They both joked about how daft the purchase was but even though they laughed at themselves, spending $1900 (plus tax!) on a cardigan when you live in Orlando is beyond crazy. When we first started watching them they couldnt afford to go to Disney. While theyve worked very hard for what they now have (& fair play to them) and its their money to spend I still couldnt quite believe it!
