Picture this: you are on the subway, riding to work on a dreary day in the city. Your mind is filled with thoughts of your trip to Walt Disney World and you begin to think about where you will be sleeping on property. You pull out your trusty Android device and open up your WDW Resort Researcher that you downloaded last night. As you rumble along on the subway you are immersed in your own personal research project, looking at the various resorts for member ratings and reviews, pictures, floor plans and cost calculations. Your imagination is working overtime… Wouldn’t it be fun to stay at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa next time? I wonder what people are saying about it. Oh look, 5 stars and 19 reviews. Lets find out more! Ooh, I have always dreamed of living in a world of grace and charm. Wow, 90 pictures! Lets check those out. I wonder how much it would cost to stay there.. lets see… tap the calculator icon. I think we’ll be staying from April 7th for 3 nights, tap the Select Room button. 1 Bedroom Royal Palm Club, that sounds nice, how much would that be? $4395? Wow, I guess we’ll need to save up some money or win the lottery for that one:p I think I'll send that one to the wife and see what she thinks about that room! What other rooms do they have I wonder… Someday I sure would like to stay in the Disney Suite I wonder how much that would cost…
The next thing you know it’s time to get off the subway, and you can’t wait for the ride home so you can get some more quality time on the WDW Resort Researcher… Perhaps we should have called it the WDW fantasy tool!
