“If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible.  Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.” – Anthony Bourdain

Hiddy Ho, as Wilson would say.  Who doesn’t love a good random Home Improvement reference? We’re Serena and Nate. Kids of the 90’s with a passion for food, travel, golf, adventure, and all things Mickey Mouse.

For many years we were lucky enough to experience the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) thanks to Nate’s family, who have been members for over 25 years. On one fateful day in August 2014, we took the plunge and purchased our own membership. Good luck in stopping us from telling anyone and everyone about the best decision we’ve ever made (besides each other, duh). Our adventures together began 10+ years ago. From the start, we knew the road would twist, turn and have the occasional fork (Muppet reference). It was during our first road trip from New Hampshire to Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, VA that we knew we had found our partner in crime. We’ve been on a journey to find as many hidden Mickeys ever since.

Check in on us from time-to-time, as we share our adventures, tips, tricks, and thoughts around all things Walt Disney World, DVC, food, travel, and life.
