What Does This Go Toward?

A message from Trader Sam:

Remember that for the past 15+ years, the Disney Experience has been all done by one person: me.

Because I have to put forth the majority of the costs from my own pocket, I have to use a good portion of my time earning the extra money that keeps this website going. That gives me less time to spend creating content for you. But, with your help, I can shift my focus from working to creating and doing cool new things!

Your donations go toward (but are not limited to) the monthly operating costs of the Disney Experience, upgrading equipment, hardware & software, replenishing supplies, cool prizes, giveaways, and more.

I would really like to make the monthly giveaways a truly monthly event as the name suggests. And, I would like to create more Disney Experience branded donation gifts (t-shirts? buttons? magnets? postcards? pens?). But, the donations have never been at a level where I could do that. I have to set money aside a little bit at a time to get stuff like that, but, often, it ends up covering maintenance costs.

I deeply appreciate all of your donations, and I thank all of you who have helped support the Disney Experience over the years. Some of you have been very generous, and it's been unbelievable.

Donations are freely given by you, and are not tax deductable. This is a fansite, and is not owned, operated, or maintained by the Walt Disney Company.

How Else Can I Help?

To help keep the content of the Disney Experience free to all, we use third-party advertising. They play an important role, along with donations from you, in helping to keep this website up and running. But, with the increasing popularity of ad blockers and anti-trackers/cookie blockers, we are losing that much-needed revenue.

Annoying, Irrelevant, & Inappropriate

Let's face it: third-party ads can be pretty annoying . . . especially when some websites take them too far! They interfere with page load times, and are often irrelevent.

We primarily use Google Adsense, and take an active role in making sure that we comply with Google's strict ad placement guidlines. There is a limit of three Google ads on any given page, and they load asynchronously, which means they will never interfere with the loading of the normal page conent.

We also actively browse through the ads, blocking inappropriate, irrelevent, and dubious advertisements. We don't always catch them in time, and a few may slip through the cracks, but we find them eventually. If you see an offending ad that keeps popping up for days or weeks on end, please take a screenshot of the ad and e-mail it to us right away!

Whitelist Us!

If you believe that this website has any value, please consider whitelisting us in your blockers. To show Google Adsense ads on this website, you can whitelist us. Whitelisting puts us on a list of approved websites in your ad blocker and anti-tracker so that they don't block ads or trackers.

You can whitelist/unblock either the whole website (simplest method) or individual trackers (more control). For individual trackers, you will need to unblock both Google Adsense and DoubleClick.

Please feel free to review our Privacy Policy.
