DDW Pic 812. Thank You!

Thank You!
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who continues to enjoy my daily pictures from Walt Disney World. Today, this website hit the milestone of 100,000 "page views." I started Digital Disney World almost three years ago as a way to stay connected to my favorite place. I could not have imagined that it was the start of something that would eventually lead my family to Central Florida to follow our dreams. 

I started the website on New Years Day in 2011 and originally wrote about how modern technology can keep us connected to Walt Disney World, even when we couldn't physically be there. As I wrote article after article during that first year, I realized that I wanted to turn my passion for this place I love into some sort of business. Eventually, I started WDW Guded Tours and have had the pleasure of helping so many guests enjoy the "Vacation Kingdom." Looking back, I now realize that my hobby of writing Digital Disney World helped to keep me focused on my goal of creating a Disney livelihood. 

Digital Disney World has evolved into a place where I can share a daily photo from somewhere around the resort. I usually try to post a current picture from that day, or at least from the very recent past. As busy as I've become with the tour guide business, I still look forward to spending 15 minutes each night choosing and posting a picture. I have heard from many people over the past couple years who enjoy seeing a daily dose of a place that they love. I am humbled and grateful that you take the time to view my "picture of the day." On this milestone day, I thought it appropriate to post a classic shot of the Magic Kingdom, as this is really where "The World" began.

Thanks again,
Dave
