The Disney Food Blog does not endorse any product or restaurant I feel is sub-standard. No ifs, ands, or buts.
Who Pays for All That Food?
As a general rule, my husband and I (or our columnists and team members when they’re writing up reviews) pay for every trip we take to a Disney-area property — flights, hotel, food, tickets. It’s important to us to do this so that we can further ensure our readers that our reviews are un-biased.
If our travel, hotel, tickets, or food are ever complimentary, it will be noted in the resulting blog posts. However, I am 100% honest in my reviews, even if the food was complimentary. If I didn’t like it, I’ll let you know Neither I nor my editors and contributors are ever under any obligation to review food positively.
Disney Food Blog accepts the following forms of compensation:
Because that food usually isn’t free, we do accept compensation in the form of affiliate program advertising, restaurant and hotel sponsorships, and product sales.
Some of the shopping links on DisneyFoodBlog.com are “referral links” that track the source of the purchase back to DisneyFoodBlog.com through an “affiliate program.” When you click on one of those links and buy something, Disney Food Blog gets a small commission (usually a few cents) from the linked site for referring you.
This does not affect the price of the product or the price you pay. Also, the consumer’s purchases are confidential; I don’t know who has purchased items using my blog’s affiliate links.
Restaurant Sponsor Partnerships:
You won’t see a lot of advertising here on the Disney Food Blog, but we may enter into relationships with sponsors whom we have sought out based on the high quality of their services and the synergy between their product and the focus of the Disney Food Blog. Basically, if I find something I would want to know about as a Disney and Food fan, then it’s something I want to tell my readers about. Sponsor partnerships may result in posts about Disney- and food-related events and products that I have determined are high-quality enough to mention on the blog.
However, I am not compensated to provide a positive opinion on products, services, websites, and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely those of the blog’s writers. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic, product, or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
With the launch of our new e-Book, The Disney Food Blog Guide to Walt Disney World Dining, we are compensated through book sales.
