Meaning, without any plans or ADRs and knowing full well that April is crowded, would you leave right this minute for a 4 day trip? Well, in an hour - I'll give you time to pack a bag.

Would you go? Alone? With just your spouse? With the kids, too? Or there's just no way you could do it?

I'd never do it with the kids, but if my husband came home and said 'hey babe, let's catch the next flight to Orlando! - your mom can watch the boys!' I'd be ALL IN.

Hopefully my husband will read that later, and be inspired....:rolleyes:

Actually my husband and I have done that before! haha, it was the middle of a terrible week at work for us both and he said we really need a WDW weekend to reward ourselves for getting through this week. I said don't tempt me, which is code for "all you need to do is prod me a little and I will say yes". Since we live close enough to drive and have annual passes we ended up going for it. I really hope there are other people out there like us tgd!

I HOPE YOUR HUSBAND READS YOUR POST AND DOES GET INSPIRED! :rotfl2:


I'd say YES, but actually we're already scheduled for two upcoming trips later this year (he humors me) and leaving for a cruise out of Fla (my gift to HIM) in 3 days so......
That ain't happening, but BOY IT'S NICE TO DREAM!!
Have a great day!

I certainly would! Of course... we only have to wait 12 more days before we actually go :cool1:

We'll stay at the Poly since this is a spur of the moment trip and we're being Wild 'n Crazy....let's go for deluxe! :cheer2:

Is saying DUH! too fresh? I'm not trying to be fresh honestly!:lovestruc

I would go without my kids, but I'd be heart broken and guilty the entire time. They make it half the fun!

Without my DH - that's come up before and we have a pack that one doesn't go without the other - until death do us part - I swear if he could have added it to our vows he would have because I'd go anytime with anyone at any minute.

I mean I'll leave with you right now if you want...let's go!!! I don't need to waste time in packing!! Everything I'll need is either at Downtown Disney or at a shop somewhere! I'll manage trust me!

ADRs - hell I'll call them in on the way down or while we're on the Magical Express to the hotel. Still can't get them, while you're in the bathroom in our room 'freshing up' I'll be on the phone to guest services making them.

Once DH called me on a Saturday saying he wanted to be at Disney - we were standing infront of Cinderella's castle 11am by Wednesday!

I'll fly if someone finds the way to buy!

I'm already in the car. Is one outfit per person enough? If I even sat at the resort all day I could be in a much better mood! LOL

I could have my whole family ready to go in one hour, as long as I could find someone to watch the dog!:cool1:

If someone else was paying, I could easily have the 3 kids and DH packed up and sitting by the door in well under an hour. That said, we're an all or nothing kind of family, so if DH and the kids weren't invited, I wouldn't be going....

juligrl
04-16-2008, 04:48 PM
I'd do it, absolutely! With whoever wanted to or could go or by myself if nobody could. As long as they could be ready in an hour they'd be welcome to come. I'd have a great time too!

I don't even need the hour to pack..I can leave now. WDW has washers, dryers and lots of clothes for sale...the front desk will even give me a toothbrush....just let me grab my sandals!!! :)

ALL EXPENSES PAID????

If so- YES- otherwise I have to save some $$$ so couldn't do it NOW- but if I won a trip- even if I didn't have any ADRs and plans of any kind you'd better believe I'd be ready in a minute!

PS- I'd bring my kids and Dh- it's not fun w/o them- and I'd miss them terribly.

I'm going to be the lone "no" vote. It's not that I can't be spontanious (in college, I actually did go to the airport and asked to be put on the next flight...no matter where it went...just for the fun of it) BUT, I guess I'm the only one who doesn't have the patience for Disney in April. 50 minute waits for rides is just NOT for me!!! And no ADRs means no sit down meals. I'd prefer not to be eating chicken fingers and bacon burgers for my whole trip!

ditto!! Maybe even 45 minutes. Actually, if my husband called and said he was leaving work and could I be ready, he works 25 minutes away, I'd dump the dog at the kennel, throw some clothes, the kid, the portable DVD player in the car and be gone. :cool1: :cool1: :cool1:

As much as I love my kids, my DH and I honeymooned in WDW, so I think I'd just like to go with him! :lovestruc

It would take me less than an hour all I need is my credit card and the kids, DH would say no which is fine he can stay home with the dogs:cool1:

Maybe I should keep an emergency bag in the closed just in case dreams really do come true.......lol

Wanna see how fast a mom can pack for a family of 5?

04-17-2008, 10:22 AM
Absolutely, positively YES! (But only with DH and DD.) I agree with a previous poster about going with the clothes on our backs since Disney has washer and dryers and clothes for sale!

Here is hoping that all our spouses read this and get inspired!

Of course...I could be ready in a half hour, tops. I would want to bring my DH. It wouldn't be as much fun witout him. We don't have kids yet.

04-17-2008, 12:34 PM
My 6 and 13yr old ask me this everyday. We would be out the door before you can even finish the question. My DH on the other hand will be saying I'll see you when you get back:rotfl:

I'm ready - I think my kids would be ready in about 4 seconds flat. It might take Dh about 10 seconds to make sure the house is locked up! Get ready, Get Set, Let's GO!

Are you kidding? I would live at WDW if I could!!!!!:wizard: The end of a school year can be pretty tough, so you want to be anywhere but there when the kids get spring fever!!!! I would be happiest person in the world if someone told me I had just received a free trip to WDW as long as I could leave today! I could have our family packed and ready to go in no time!!!!:thumbsup2 My DH and I have joked about moving down to Jacksonville just so we could get Florida Resident passes or even going on down to Orlando and working for WDW! I can't think of a happier place to work!!!:love:
I'm right there with you guys!!!!!:cool1:

04-17-2008, 07:02 PM
I would go in a flash even if it was just to relax at the POLY I would have to take DH and DS3 unless I didn't tell DS3 mommie and daddy are going to "Mickey Mouse's House". Nooo I couldn't do that to him it would have to be all of us.:banana:

As of this morning, 25 teachers from my school left for WDW with 400 Seniors. Two other teachers were out for a family funeral.

Dead or alive, I NEED to be in school tomorrow. We sub internally and we're out of teachers. Today the dean, in addition to teaching his own classes, covered one extra class and a cafeteria duty.

I would be there in a heartbeat for Saturday, but I could NOT leave now!!!

OH YAH, I WOULD SO BE THERE!!! By myself, with spouse, or with my kid - any of the above. We used to go on WDW weekend trips with just a few days notice, so I know it can be done. Who needs ADR's - just plunk me down there and I'll make do with Mickey bars ;-)

We'd leave this minute if someone offered! LOVE spontaneous trips, although they haven't been as frequent since we've had our darling kiddos..... I'd have to take them - just wouldn't feel right being there w/out them right now. DH - well, I'd feel badly but I could get over that guilt fairly quickly....

And, yes, we'd ALL eat turkey legs and Mickey bars and be PERFECTLY happy! Actually my ds would be just fine w/ ONLY Mickey bars!!!

not a spontaneous person. I need to pack, have outfits prepared, house clean, grocery shopping done (My mom lives with us and she would need food while we were gone!), laundry caught up, dog sitter arranged...can't do it.
