A Mother-Daughter Sea/Land August Trip - UPDATE! CHANGES??? (2/24)
Hello! My name is Roni, and I just completed a report of our July DCL cruise to Alaska. And, well, I can’t stand the thought of not having a report going, so yes, I am starting a PTR for an August 2013 trip today - the last day of August 2012.
My traveling companion is my daughter Willow. She is currently 5 years old (starting kindergarten next week ) and will be 6 on our next Disney adventure. Here are some pictures of us!
Earlier this year:
At WDW in October 2011:
Compared to many of you, DD and I are very recent Disney People. We had our first trip to WDW in October 2010, and we were hooked. We went back again in October 2011, and in January 2012, I surprised DD with a trip to Disneyland on her fifth birthday. This summer, as mentioned above, we mixed things up a bit by doing our first Disney cruise. And we LOVED it!
So while onboard the Wonder, I took advantage of the discounts offered and booked another cruise - the 14-day repositioning cruise through the Panama Canal. A trip like that through the Panama Canal is a bucket-list item for me, so I am super-excited to do it.
However, DD is only 5 (will be 6 then), and I am not sure that it would be as much fun for her. So, after wrestling with it for a while, I decided to delay that trip by a year or two (it would require taking her out of school, and I think I may still be able to get away with that in first or second grade) so that she can read some books about the Canal and learn about it before we go.
So the question is: what are we going to do instead????? I have booked a replacement trip for August 2013 (horrified at the thought of being a slave to the school year from now on, but that’s the way it has to be for the most part). Hopefully, a few of my buddies from my TRs will follow me over here and join in a little guessing game along with anyone else who might join in. So…..
WHERE ARE WILLOW AND RONI GOING????
Once we have that established, we can discuss whether the current plan is a good one or whether it needs some tweaking.
