Disney World is a one of a kind destination, and will end up being a one of a kind vacation if you chose to go. All in all, my trip there was a huge success despite all the short comings. And in all honesty, it was a huge success because of all the research Lisa and I did ahead of time.
We both consulted many websites, and Lisa actually read a few books on her Kindle, one of which kind of ‘ruins’ Disney’s mystique, and we learned a ton of stuff. Sure much of the things contradicted themselves, but after the trip was through, we realized how much we actually missed, because of our poor planning.

How far should one go to create a backstory for a novel? There are so many examples of how far some people have gone and its so hard to choose the distance one should take.
In my fantasy novel, I am currently writing, I knew I had to create a new world. I then narrowed down that the action will take place only on a specific continent, so I mapped that out and just kind of glanced over some interesting places the characters were going to visit. Then I had to try to figure out what kind of fantasy it was, did it have dragons, did it have griffins, or was it just like earth, with no real fantastical creatures?
