In response to many of our trip reports, we receive comments along the lines of: “you guys look like you have fun touring the parks.” A lot of these comments and questions are more specific, with two especially popular ones being, “where did Sarah get [insert article of clothing or footwear here], it looks so beautiful!” and “what time of [insert name of camera, lens, or other photography equipment here] use in the parks?”
While we wholly deny being fun or cool people, we do admit that Sarah wears clothes to Disney, and Tom carries camera equipment. We also reluctantly concede that we do have a lot of fun when we tour the parks, and that’s because we think we enable ourselves to do that by planning and doing things right. Trips are a lot more fun when you plan properly: if you wear comfortable shoes, bring delicious and energizing snacks, read the right books to prepare for your trips, or use the right apps. To that end, we’ve created a series of Trip Planning Guides wherein we will give the DTB “Brick of Approval” (this may sound bad, but Bricker is our last name, so it’s really a good thing, we swear!) to various things we use to help us maximize our fun-quotient while visiting the parks!
