To comply with FTC’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials (2009), I offer the following disclosure policy:
Because I have an audience (hi!), I sometimes receive products to look at and review. It’s a pretty awesome perk. Whenever I get free stuff to review, I will let you know that I received the item gratis at the bottom of the post. If possible, I will give the item away. (Unfortunately, that doesn’t work for things like apps, but I’d give them to you if I could!)
Maybe someday I’ll get invited on a press trip—which is when journalists and bloggers are able to visit a place or take part in a special experience in exchange for writing about it. If that ever happens, I will tell you about the trip or event before it happens (when possible), and I will disclose the freebie at the bottom of every single post related to the free trip.
I will never, ever, ever, ever accept money in exchange for writing a review of anything.
Here’s the important part: whether I receive a product or experience for free or by paying for it, I will always give you my full, 100% honest opinion. I am so glad that you’ve decided to be part of my little piece of the Internet, and I have nothing but respect for you. I will not bullshit you. Ever.
The FTC also wants you to know that if you purchase something (like, say, the Disney Food Blog Guide to WDW Dining) after clicking on a link on our blog, Facebook page or Twitter feed you can assume that I received a percentage of the purchase price at no additional cost to you. I don’t make much money from affiliate links, but every little bit helps keep Mouse on the Mind going.
Now that we’ve complied with federal regulations, why don’t we get back to planning Disney vacations?
