My oldest brother, who is about twelve years older than me, retired from teaching several years ago, as he was offered a good early retirement package. Their home is in Menominee, Michigan, not far from where we grew up. At first, he and his wife bought a few timeshares, and they would drive to Florida during the winter, stretching out their timeshare points as far as they would go, then staying in hotel rooms. Then, because hotel rooms are expensive, they rented a trailer at a trailer park in Florida. Living there, they became aware of a very small home that was on a lot in the trailer park (not a trailer, but a small frame home) was for sale pretty cheap, so they bought it. Each fall, they drive to Florida, and live in their little home there. They both do seasonal work at Disney World, and have been for quite a while. Some weeks, they might not work at all, but they are kept busy on other weeks. As long as they get a certain number of hours in each season (150, I think), they get big discounts on Disney stuff, which includes some area golf courses, and I think they can get into the park for free (or with a very good discount), and bring two guests. So while they are in Florida, their kids will come and spend a couple of weeks there, and they can take them to Disney World, or golfing, without much of an expense. I'd think they wouldn't be much interested in Disney World, seeing as they work there, but they work underground, at a restaurant for employees, I think, so they don't see the park itself much while they are working. Plus, it's fun to show other people around. I got into Disneyland for free while I lived there, yet there were still things to do and see that I enjoyed, and Disney World is much bigger than Disneyland. In the spring, they drive back to Michigan, and the trailer park management leases their little home out to summer visitors, which pays their park fees.
