Well, I'm doing my second post and no one but Jim, my husband, has seen my first post so far. I have to share this blog and I think it's time. Things are certainly not done and no where near perfect but if I wait for that this will never be ready.
I am trying to get an answer from my husband right now. I'm probably (OK, I am,) driving him a little mad. I need to know our resort situation for next summer. It may seem a long way away to some of you but I need to contact the fabulous Emily at Magic for Less Travel and get a quote.
There are so many options: ten days at Pop Century, ten day at Animal Kingdom Lodge (ha!), a split stay between the two resorts, going the traditional Magic Your Way route, going with an Annual Passholder, even renting Disney Vacation Club points to stay at AKL. Choices, choices, choices!
Do I have an opinion? I have choices I'd prefer not to do. But lots of the options are appealing as well. How do I know? I have created a detailed spreadsheet that breaks down each scenario. I told you I was obsessed.
But this has to be Jim's decision so that he's satisfied next summer. Once he tells me, I can e-mail Emily and get the ball rolling. And a quote puts me one step closer to a payment. Which puts me one step closer to having a reservation number. And oh, the things I can do with that...
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.
