Apologies for the delay between posts. I usually try to update the site during the last week of the month. Unfortunately I was ill the end of September and by the time I was better I was busy with a big project for another of my websites. (The 15th anniversary of Animated Views — check us out Disney fans!)

In my very first post here I listed some of my inspirations for creating this site. I then put those links in my sidebar. But there was another link there at the top that I hadn’t mentioned yet. An inspiration not for this site, but for the entire idea behind the site. WDW Radio. I wanted to wait to mention them until I could do an entire post about probably my favorite podcast of all time!

So the plan isn’t explicitly about “how do we move to Disney”? The plan is more about “How can we make the decision on whether to stay in Tennessee or move to Disney easier?”

Big Disney parks fans probably at some point in their life consider “The Move”. They say, “Disney World is so great, wouldn’t it be cool to live there?” For most, it’s a fun thought but quickly put aside. But for a few adventurous (or maybe just crazy) ones it can become an obsession.

My wife, kids, and parents took our first big family trip to Disney World in 2005, and it was kind of life-changing! Ever since then we’ve toyed with the idea of making The Move but we never really took it too seriously. It was always a maybe-one-day-far-down-the-road idea. Recently, due to some potential changes in our lives we started thinking “why not just do it if we’re going to do it?”
