The Mature Mouse™ would certainly enjoy the luxury of staying at a Club Level room at one of the Disney World Resorts. Have you ever had the opportunity and vacation budget to stay in one of these rooms? If so, at which resort? Is it worth the extra cost to upgrade? I started planning my next Disney World Vacation by calling Jennie Nowers. When the Cool Summer Savings were released, Jennie was up early applying these savings to my trip, which saved me 15% on the price of my resort stay. I did not need to do a thing. Tell her that The Mature Mouse™ sent you and receive a special gift from Jennie with your next booking. Please visit The Mature Mouse™ store for logo merchandise. Many of the items would make outstanding additions to your vacation gear and attire.
