Buy A Disney Gift Card - If you can't afford thousands of dollars for another vacation, and you just don't feel like you'll ever get back, take some baby steps.

It's not a huge savings, but it's a tangible reminder that you're one step closer.

One of my favorite things to do is pop onto youtube and watch some of the best vloggers take trips to the World. Watch some people you've come to enjoy seeing each week ride rides, eat Disney treats, sing along to the parades and shows... It's like getting to peek through a little window into the Disney magic from home :)!
