Hello fellow Disney Nuts! I am Guru Joey. Ever since I was a little boy I have had a fascination with Disney. Believe me, I know, unlike Tigger, I am not the only one. But, I came from a family that could hardly afford food, let alone a trip to a Disney park. I remember hearing stories from friends at school about their trips to Disneyland and Disneyworld and as young minds do I imagined it was a magical place that brought the edges of our dreams to the threshold of reality. All you needed to do was step in. Trouble was, it was just plain out of reach for me.
Fast forward to my honeymoon with the best wife a man could find… In… Disneyworld! You might think the grand expectations from my childhood would be too grand to satisfy, but my first trip to the Magic Kingdom did not disappoint. Since then my love for Disney has just grown.
Given my humble background I have even made it a point to discover ways a family could visit Disney and not break the bank. Don’t get me wrong, no matter what you do Disney can still cost a pretty penny, but I have spent countless hours scouring the internet and have searched every Disney database to find the most affordable ways to book your Disney Trip.
That is why Guru Nick, Guru Brian and I, Guru Joey have created Mousegurus.com. Let us be your Guru, and with our tips, tricks, and reviews you can plan the best most affordable and fantastic Disney trip you have ever had!
Hello Disney Fanatics, this is Guru Nick. Disney has been a part of my life since I can remember. I grew up with the Disney cartoons and Disney Afternoon. I remember watching the Wonderful World of Disney as they would showcase new Rides and attractions at the parks, but I never had a chance to go and see these amazing spectacles for myself. My parents made it clear growing up that with six boys in our family, that type of vacation wasn’t in the books.
After I finished college I went to grad school at Cal State San Bernardino. This was only 45 minutes from Disneyland. Still, as a poor grad student with a family of three, Disneyland was still out of reach. Then a family friend called my wife and told her they had extra park hopper tickets. They asked if we wanted to join them. Of course we did!
I can still remember the smells and music as we walked through the gates and under the train bridge. The site of Main Street was something out of a story book. The sweet smells in the air and the castle in the distance will always be the first thing I recall.
Since that incredible trip I have been back to Disneyland around 25 times. I have stayed at every Resort Hotel and even some of the hotels within walking distance. I have come to know and love all the secrets and trivia about that magical place. I look forward to sharing my experiences with all of you.
Hey, I’m Guru Brian. One of the best memories as a kid was going to Disneyworld with my family and enjoying the ‘Disney Magic’ all around us! I remember ordering the free Disney Planning DVDs and watching them over and over. Learning everything about the different rides, cool facts about the parks, and planning pretend vacations was something I LOVED doing. Now that I’m a parent, I love taking my kids to the Disney theme parks and seeing their excitement, watching them laugh and squeal with joy on the rides, and dance and clap while watching the parades. There is nothing more magical than having a great time with your kids at Disney. I’m excited to share experiences, reviews, tips, and tricks to help you get the most out of your Disney vacations!
