Planning is Key
Many years ago when I planned my first visit to Walt Disney World as an adult, I had no idea how many mistakes I was making… until I got there. I had very little idea of what there was to see or do at the parks, and we ended up missing out on shows, waiting way too long in line, and wandering around looking for any restaurant with a table available. While we enjoyed most of our vacation, I was disappointed that we wasted so much time and missed things we wanted to do. After looking forward to our vacation for months, it wasn’t a great feeling.
I’ve always remembered that vacation because it showed me how good planning, or lack thereof, can make such a difference to having a great trip. That’s why I started this site in the first place – I wanted to have a place for everything I’ve learned since then, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes that I made and have an awesome vacation.
Nerd Travel Pro – Travel for Nerds
I specialize in nerd travel – to me, being a nerd has always meant being unashamedly passionate about the stories I love. It means having fun with the worlds inside my imagination, regardless of age. It means continuing to love the stories you grew up knowing, and treasuring the memories those stories gave you. This is why I love planning for my favorite destinations – these are places that can take you right into the world of your imagination and make it real. If you’re just a grown-up kid like me, you’ll love these destinations, too.
So, that poorly planned trip I took? Besides showing me just how important it is to know about the destination and how to plan for it, it also did something amazing for me. I had visited both Disneyland and Walt Disney World as a child, but when I first went back as an adult, I thought that my interest would be lukewarm at best. After all, it’s just for kids, right?
Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong, and now I’ve visited Disney destinations many more times as an adult than I did as a child. I loved revisiting classic Disney attractions as adults and feeling like a kid all over again. To me that’s what being a nerd is all about – feeling the joy of the stories and characters you loved as a kid all over again.
These stories are enjoyed by many, but only you know what they mean to you – so live the story as only you can. What story do you want to experience?
