In Loving Memory... We’re Going Deluxe! - A Jan 2013 PTR (TR Link 01/28)
Hello everyone! Welcome back to all my faithful readers and lurkers (why stay a lurker? Say hello! I’d love to hear from you. )! If any of you have ever been to Disney with a baby, to Disney in January, or both, I NEED YOUR HELP!!! Pretty please?
If you are new here, Hi! My name is Mel. Please don’t be shy, and come say Hi! This PTR will be much more fun with you in it! If you want to know more about me or about when all this Disney addiction started, check out the TR of our first trip:
Mega Waves, Date Night and Fast Pass baby!!
Our wedding in Cuba : Paradise does exist, I got married there!
You can also get the link to all the chapters of those two TR in the intro of my previous PTR : Our Disneymoon PTR + Wedding TR
And our Disneymoon : Zombie Apocalypse and Pixie Dust - A 2 Weeks Disneymoon Trip Report
Enough with the background, let’s get started on this pre trip report, shall we?
I’ll do things a little differently and start with the reason for the trip as that is where the title comes from.
Why : Most PTR the why is usually a “why not?” or a fun reason like a birthday. This one is a little different. If you followed my Disneymoon trip report then you know that my mom passed away 2 months ago. She was always the type to “save up for later” and never splurge on herself. I did convince her to take a trip with me over 10 years ago, and that gave her a boost to take another trip with a friend a few years later. I am so glad she did those because “later” never came for her. The lesson I want to take away from her death is that life is short, live it NOW (within your means, of course). I received a little money due to her passing away. It’s not much, but it’s enough to make one of our dreams come true, which is to go to Disney. A bonus is that it will be Peanut’s first trip.
When : Our original dates were suppose to be January 2nd to January 12. The three main reasons were to take part in the 5K during marathon weekend, to return in time for DD13 to have time to get back home and only miss three days of school, and to get a cheaper rate for the resort. It took so long for this trip to be official that by that time the stroller division of the 5K was full. Then finding cheap flights became a problem. We saw a great deal for flights leaving on the 1st, but we didn’t book it right away and by the time we were ready to book it was back up in price. Finally we got lucky and found an even BETTER deal, but this time leaving on the 31st of December. We’ll be in Disney for NEW YEARS EVE!!!!!!!!!! I can’t even believe it!!! I never thought in a million years that I would get to do that. It’s so awesome.
We also changed our return time by a couple of days, so our dates are Dec. 31st to Jan. 10.
Where : Well you already know from the title that we’ll be staying DELUXE!!!!! I’ll keep the details a secret until I get to that update. What I can tell you though is that since we are now going to be in the World before the room-only discount starts, we’ll be trying two different resorts. Anybody want to guess which ones?
I’ll come back with the cast later on. And baby pictures. In the meantime, I’d love to read your guesses for the resorts we’ll be staying.
