Although Americans tourists are banned from entering the country, I went under the journalism category.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible  (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.



Today I attend a DVC annual meeting, we expect the wage increases will affect us and discuss ways to minimize its impact on our dues. We basically rubber-stamped their agenda, approving the minutes, audits, and the election of the new board. There will be three new Disney ships added to the fleet, thought about joining their cruise out of NYC to Bermuda. There will be lot of things going on in the parks in observation of Mickey 90th birthday. We still have our moonlight magic where we can stay in the theme parks ourselves after it closes. We got our own lounge at EPCOT's Journey to Imagination on the second floor to relax, enjoy a drink and a snack. There is also another one is located at the Wilderness Lodge where a chef can show us how to cook, or even paint on canvas with the artist. There is a lot of perks but I'm not going to bore you with the details.  
Anyway, I suggested that the Member-at-Large not be selected by Disney, but let us timeshare owners nominated one of our own and be given the rights to vote. Disney seeks feedback from us, but I sometimes think they are tone-deaf.
