Founder/Managing Editor DisneyHacks.com
Welcome to Disney Hacks! My name is Shawn Coomer and I am the founder of Disney Hacks and its sister site Miles to Memories. I have spent the past 13 years circling the globe for pennies on the dollar. I am an expert in travel rewards, credit cards and saving money. I use my skills to fly first class, stay in fancy hotels and even to visit Disney for much less than others are paying.
Disney Is My Passion
Speaking of Disney, I know it and I love it. I grew up just an hour from Disneyland and spent much of my childhood there. As my family and I began to travel, visiting Disney just made sense. We completed our first grand circle tour of the then 5 existing Disney resorts in 2009 and have since returned many times, having just completed our 6 Resorts (now with Shanghai) in 6 Weeks epic trip in 2019!
The reason I am starting Disney Hacks is to share my unique travel hacking and Disney knowledge. The truth is that each of the Disney resorts is unique and special in its own way. Each has its own quirks and rules that you should be aware of. Who better to teach you how to maximize your Disney vacation than someone who has been there as a regular guest many many times?!?
Save Time & Money
On Disney Hacks I want to show you how to best plan your Disney vacation, but also make sure you do it in a way where you are saving money or at the very least getting to do A LOT more for the same amount of money. As part of my travels, I stays in luxury hotels, fly in premium cabins and carry elite status with more than a dozen loyalty programs. I can help you with both Disney and all of your other travels as well.
If you are new to travel hacking I highly recommend visiting and subscribing to our sister site Miles to Memories. Miles to Memories has been one of the premier sources of information on award travel since 2013 and is a great source of travel deals and tips to maximize miles/points. The site has been featured in Bloomberg, CNBC, Huffington Post, Yahoo among others.
Traveling with my family is very important. In 2007 my wife, then 6 year old son and I set out on an amazing around the world journey that lasted 18 months. Since then we have continued to travel for long periods of time on trips both long and short. My son is now 18, however we added a new member of the family in 2015 with the birth of Ellie.
The addition of Ellie to the family has meant we get to share our love of travel and Disney all over again! Not only is she getting to see the world, but that #DisneyToddler just got to visit every single Disney resort worldwide within 6 weeks. Lucky girl!
At Disney Hacks we strongly believe in community as well. The best way to communicate with myself and the team is through our Facebook Groups. First, join our Disney Hacks Facebook Community. If you’re also interested in points/miles then consider joining the Miles to Memories Facebook community with almost 10,000 other members! I guarantee you’ll learn a lot.
Thanks for visiting the site and please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or just want to talk Disney! 🙂
