Travel: Unwrap a World of Disney Memories This Holiday at Disney Parks

So, hello, my name is Michelle, I got suckered into buying a Disney Timeshare that I can’t use. Hi Michelle. Ok, so my Orlando Timeshare isn’t through Disney. My timeshare is beautiful but there were so many hidden gotchas with that deal, that I’m still salty. So I’ll hopefully be in Orlando in January hanging with the Mousehouse.
