Welcome to my refuge :)

Disney has become a daily retreat for me. We may only spend 10 days there a year (more if I'm truly blessed), but I have found that making Mickey a part of my daily life makes me feel much better. So I'm running with it! Luckily I have a patient husband and a laptop computer that allows me to do endless searching and planning. This blog is developing out of that. You are welcome to come along for the ride and offer your advice. I don't claim to be an expert, just a lover of the experience!

Right now whenever a post says "Update" that means it is a 2011 trip update and if you click on the tab with that date on it you can read that update.

Disney on my mind... and in my notebook

     This week I headed back to school. And trust me some teachers look forward to it as much as the kids do. I was in day after day of meetings. Now being someone who suffers from excessive daytime sleepiness I do anything I can that is appropriate to stay awake. I find the perfect answer to be make lists and write non-stop in my notebook . Well this comes in very handy when you are Mickey-obsessed.
     I have a draft for my travel agent, Emily, explaining the possible options I'd like her to price. I even came up with a way I might be able to do a more expensive option (it means giving a little but I think I can budge a bit.)
     My Mickey obsession has spread to my classroom. My classroom will officially be known as "The 2nd Happiest Place on Earth." Everything will be Mickey themes from our folders to our calendar, job chart, and pencils. I think it should be fun. I love my Cricut machine for making it all possible!
     Okay, by my next post my husband is going to make a decision and I will have sent Emily our quote requests.I have things narrowed down. We just need to make some choices. That will start to get us on our way.
     Finally, I am really excited by the rumor that there will be a 5th Orlando park based on the Disney Villains by 2020. That is really amazing news!


  1. Wouldn't think the villians would be a big attractor, but I guess I was more scared by the witch in sleeping beauty than anything else except Cruella Deville!
