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.

I finally did it and I went big...

After weeks of speculation I finally took the plunge and emailed Emily W. my travel agent at Magic for Less for quotes. My original plan had been to give her two scenarios: one that was what I wanted and one that was an acceptable but lesser and cheaper plan.

I changed my mind. I only sent Emily my ideal plan. This trip should be exactly what I want and for that to happen it has to start that way from the get-go. Last year's trip was less than perfect and this year's trip has such great potential that I want to give it every advantage.

So here's what I proposed: I still am having her run it two different ways one using Magic Your Way Packages and the other using room only and an Annual Passholder discount.

  • 10 days/ 9 nights at Pop Century Resort at the end of June/ beginning of July with a King size bed in the 70's B building
  • Deluxe Dining Plan
  • no ground transportation
  • Magical Express
  • travel insurance- especially because of where I am medically
  • Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party (when available) on July 3rd
  • a way to celebrate our good fortune this time around: PAIN -FREE!!!
So I guess you could say I know what I want! Now I need those quotes so I can get Jim to decide which way he wants to go. Then we'll be $200 away from being locked into HEAVEN! And I can start my planning in earnest.

With surgery (in theory) getting closer, I am getting anxious to get some planning nailed down. This is one step in the right direction.

Now I just have to stop harassing friends who are going to Disney soon because I'd gladly plan their trips for them as well!
