In episode 135, Kaitlin shares her story of growing up at DVC, getting married, bringing her husband to Disney for the first time, and buying DVC so that their new family can continue the tradition.

Kaitlin discusses growing up as a DVC member. Her parents own at Old Key West, Vero Beach and Hilton Head. She has grown up as a DVC member.

Kaitlin Merritt – Mayor of Old Key West for a Day – Photo is still hanging up at Olivia's.

We'd like to welcome home Kaitlin and her husband and not only congratulate them on their marriage but also on their first DVC contract. We hope the next fifty years of DVC brings much joy to your new family.

Be sure to stick around for the post-show recording. When we finished recording, Chad thought there were a few more questions to answer so we included some bonus material at the end of the show.
