Yeah, the WOS is never fun. Planning another trip will always help.

Leaving isn't the walk of shame, but the walk back to reality.
LOL. I found that out after I started this thread. I guess it has several meanings.

So this xmas was miserable - "We miss Disney" was the norm... So before the year ended, and seeing Kids Sail Free out of Miami, two words to DW, and we are set to go on a 5n on the Wonder in 13 days!

Plans for 12/13 and 12/14 are still on - maybe scaled back a bit, but still on!

And YES! I feel that 'walk of shame' and see it. EVERY trip.
Nice, so 12 days left till you're on the Wonder? Sweet. Were the two words to DW "Let's go!"?

I think the 1st disney cruise will all be the hardest for the kids to leave unless they have just had a string of bad luck. But that's hardly ever the case from the TR's I've read. I will be on the Fantasy in June so I will have to find another family to wave at.

The moment of pain: Having checked our bags through AKV's airport service, we had our carry-on bags in hand as DH and I walked to the curb in front of the AKV lobby. DH gave our taxicab voucher to a cast member. I am watching as people are going various directions.

A car pulls up. The family gets out. A CM greets them. Discussion takes place I cannot hear. The mother/wife then says to the CM assisting them, "I wonder if you could check if our room is ready early by chance. I was given the room number when I called from the airport. I was told we would be in 7808."

- wait for it -

Our room we just checked out of after it being home for the last 8 days. And now it was going to be theirs. Waaaa-aaaaaaa!

Ouch, hits me right in the heart. I feel you.

Yes, I agree whole-heartedly it is a WOS. I feel a little Eeyore-esque as we walk back down the gang plank. Even though I love Eeyore and he is my idol, I still frown at the WOS.

I am a DVC member and WDW is "my home away from home". Unfortunately, not quite as often as we Disneyfiles would like.

Can't wait to become a DVC member. Then I can finally have my "home away from home."

The treasure of "Family Time" is worth far more than any gold Captain Jack finds...
