Marketing Disclosure
  • Affiliate (Referral) Links
  • Next time you’re shopping for anything Disney online, please consider clicking through from a link on www.myorlandoguru.com. Some of the shopping links (as well as links to rental car companies, hotel chains, online travel agencies, etc.) are “referral links” that track the source of the purchase back to www.myorlandoguru.com through an affiliate program. When you click on one of those links and buy something, MyOrlandoGuru gets a small commission from the linked site for referring you.
  • For instance, if you read a review we wrote for a Disney guidebook and then decide to click on the link in the review and buy the book, MyOrlandoGuru may earn a few cents from the sale. This does not affect the price you pay. Affiliate links are one way we keep www.myorlandoguru.com going financially.
  • Compensated Recommendations
  • Some companies mentioned on this site (including the MyOrlandoGuru Preferred Hotels, travel agencies, ticket agencies, etc.) compensate MyOrlandoGuru financially. There are also companies and services recommended on www.myorlandoguru.com that do not pay compensation.
  • When it comes to accepting compensation, we follow the following ethical guidelines:
    • We do not let compensation dictate the companies we recommend. If we don’t like it, we don’t recommend it. Period. We have turned away literally dozens of companies that were willing to pay us large sums to appear on www.myorlandoguru.com.
    • We always make a good-faith effort to find the best deals we can for our readers. We make it a goal to recommend only quality, dependable companies. We love to buy wonderful things at the best possible price, and it gives us great pleasure to help our readers find the same kind of bargains.
    • The compensation received by MyOrlandoGuru does not increase the price our readers pay, and in fact, we have often negotiated a better deal for our readers than they can find elsewhere. For instance, the MyOrlandoGuru Preferred Hotels are supposed to offer our readers at least their lowest refundable/changeable rate (also known as the “Best Available Rate” in the hospitality industry). But in the vast majority of cases, they go far beyond that basic requirement, offering www.myorlandoguru.com readers exclusive deals that are not available anywhere else.
    • If we feel the quality, price or reliability of a recommended company’s product or service is no longer acceptable, we will not hesitate to remove that company from www.myorlandoguru.com, even if it means a loss of revenue. This has happened in the past, though we’re happy to say it has been a rare occurrence.
  • “Freebies” from Disney
  • We typically visit Disney and Universal resorts, theme parks and/or cruise ships several times a year. We almost always pay our own way for airfare, hotel, admission tickets, souvenirs, meals, etc.
  • Generally when we receive a free preview of a new Disney destination or attraction, we also do a separate, later trip on our own dime, in order to provide more in-depth and fair coverage.
