Are people not fans of the Tim Tracker?

Isn't it a shame for no good reason they are treated badly by some?
His wife seems lovely and when they announced they were having a baby ( I understand it was a shock to them as they were told they wouldn't be able to) people were down right cruel to her on Social Media, disgusting!

My son and daughter in law show me their vlog when they review something new, and I enjoy watching and immediately want to go to wherever they are.
I admit when they did their first Disney cruise, they had a few facts wrong, but they tried.
They give a lot of info to people and if you're planning a trip to Disney or Universal it can be quite helpful.

A lot of people are jealous that they get comped vacations from Disney & Universal. I say if you're jealous, go start your own vlog and get as many followers as they have and you too can get a free vacation, Good Luck!
I've only seen a couple of their videos, and they seem live very decent people who happen to be Disney fans. Why they received all that hate it beyond me, but it makes me want to watch more of their videos just to show my support.

Thankfully I am not the poor woman Jen drove off. I wouldn’t have gone lol I would have told her exactly what I think about her bullying me. I am equally as invested in wasting time writing my thoughts about them here as anyone who wastes time defending them I think. None of us know them and contrary to what people think they do not care about any of us one way or the other.
You sound like a mean hearted person - if you can't say something nice, just keep moving on - they have earned where they are today - maybe start your own vlog and maybe get to that point someday - or maybe you DO or DID have one and lost all your subscribers?

In the interest of as full a picture as possible:

Tim still works, but Jenn has not worked for a very long time (even early on in their vlogging career), she edits the videos. She has pretty awful anxiety which is why she often isn't in the videos - her crowd and social anxieties make it hard for her to be at the parks as often as she'd probably like and as often as Tim wants/needs to go.

Tim's day job used to be in construction and he made a LOT of money doing that, and he also made connections that allowed him to purchase/work on his own home and increase its value before flipping it to get their new (much nicer) home.

Having followed them for far too long, I can tell you that the freebies and the comps are a newer thing. They have worked their way to this point, and didn't just start out yesterday with what they have. They put in the hours, weeks and months of building their brand and their influence as well as a market that companies like Dollywood, Universal and Disney value enough to provide them with free things. And while I understand peoples aversion to "reviews" where the subject has provided the item for free to the reviewer, I don't typically look at these videos for the review aspect or their opinion, I look at it for seeing what the experience looks like and how it operates.

But I don't begrudge even the least uncouth person their current fortunes. The Trackers have put in the hours, they were not an overnight success and their diligence in building their brand earns them their place at the media/influencer table in my opinion.

And telling any soon to be mother that you feel sorry for their child is hateful, shaming. Telling a mother with fertility issues that you feel bad for their baby for having them as parents is just cruel and unnecessary drama and anyone should feel ashamed of themselves for fueling that vibe. Free speech and all but don't expect moms to just take that kind of rhetoric lying down.

    Actually they've spent years and upload a new video almost daily. So yes, it IS a lot of work, as someone who created videos very briefly, I couldn't do it full time.

    From what I understand, they thought Jen was unable to have children, so when they found out it happened, it took them by surprise. To take that and twist it into something negative about how people perceive how they will handle having a family going forward is pretty mean, and if people don't like them, don't follow or comment, let them do their own thing.

    Curious how you think they've earned anything. Being given free things to talk about isn't earning anything.

    LOL your shoulder must be dislocated after that reach.

    I am not interested in having a vloggers life in any way but if I was I would want to present a well-informed channel. The Trackers don’t really care about Disney and just want attention/money. I really like The WDW Couple. They are great. Adam the Woo is a little over the top for me but he is interesting sometimes.

    That's just your opinion. They go all over Florida and other places, they don't just cover Disney. They like going to places and vlogging about them....now they're getting some benefit after years of putting in hard work. I sense some jealousy from people who wish they could do that.

    Don't hate the player, hate the game. There's PLENTY of other Disney shills who will say/do anything for free Disney stuff. The Trackers IMO have never done that.

    We addressed the jealousy issue earlier in the thread. I think for most people, that’s just not the case. It’s like if your kid is being bullied and you tell them the bully is just jealous because you want to protect their self-esteem. Chances are the bully just doesn’t like your kid. Not everyone is going to like everyone else. I don’t like the Trackers. That’s life.

    Everyone has those they like and don’t like and it is surely possible to dislike the uninformed Trackers without being jealous of them. When I do feel jealousy, which of course everyone feels from time to time, the bar is much higher than two dopey vloggers.

    They haven’t shilled much because they haven’t been given a reason to. But it is starting!

    I don't know, I've found plenty of vloggers I don't like and I've never spent a second telling people how much I don't like them, let alone multiple days of responding to everyone about how I'm totally not jealous of them. I just don't watch the ones I don't like and they never cross my mind again. There's clearly a larger issue than just not enjoying their vlogs.

    I decided to check in on the TT on youtube. I have stayed away for a while because practically all the videos are comped
    It is worse than ever I would say one in 3 videos is a home vlog and the rest are comped. I used to enjoy unbiased opinions but now EVERYTHING is great!

    So what if they’re comped. They’ve made a career out doing what they enjoy. Good for them. If you don’t feel as though you’re getting honest reviews, then don’t watch. No need for the hate.

    I don't see the hate to which you refer. The fact that the Trackers accept gifts, gratuities, favors, free travel and special treatment automatically impinges upon their impartiality as well as compromising their integrity and damaging their credibility. As a direct result they can not be trusted for accuracy, fairness, objectivity public accountability and truthfulness. They are paid shills. These facts don't reflect hate.

    It's just that shills are generally not highly regarded in polite society. They are considered stooges or potted plants. There is nothing wrong with selling your integrity. However, some of us put a high value on our integrity.

    I'm not sure if it is their target audience, but the kids seem to really like the vlogs. My son has followed them for some time, and on the live vlogs where they read the viewer posts, it seems most of them are from kids.
    Personally, I find them entertaining and informative.

    They aren't journalists. They are not the Times or The Post or Fox News. They are an entertainment vlog on YOUTUBE.
