Ever since joining DVC I've become obsessive about planning vacations, that would probably drive me crazy

There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

Its mind numbing for sure. We're trying to plan a belated anniversary trip to Zihuatanejo, Mexico for next Febuary and trying to get him to decide on a condo vs hotel is a good time.

I've obsessed too. Glad I'm in good company. What else have to got planned/are planning?

Hide the Navigators? Heck I'm going to have to ask for 2; will they give us 2? He's a geek like me and will want his own to highlight. Guess I can bring two highlighters.


The Golden Mickey's is an award show like the Tonys or Oscars, except all the winners are Disney characters! :-) They do scenes from several different movies, it's my second favorite show - after Disney Dreams! Which is my all time favorite DCL show!! Ann-Marie has to find the magic in herself before the clock strikes 6, and she has a lot of help along the way. Yeah, this sap still every time.

Generally, I'll run down to Guest Services for an extra Navigator (one too keep nice and clean for the scrapbook).

I need a smilie that's rubbing its hands together in anticipation talking about vacations is a close second to going on vacation!

I have a 4 day at WDW coming up in three weeks, will be staying at Jambo House in a 1BR, first time in a 1BR.

Then DL in September for the first time for 7 days, staying at the VGC in a studio.

Back to WDW in December for 5 days at Jambo House, studio and CL this time.

Then our cruise in January

I just booked a birthday trip for myself in March, not sure if it will go through but for now I'm booked at Jambo House savannah view for 7 days.

Then the cruise over Mothers Day on the Fantasy for mom.

And finally the transatlantic cruise next September.

Those are all booked. It seems a bit excessive when I write them all down I'm also hoping to plan Aulani for 2015, at least ten days if not longer.

What are you planning?

The Golden Mickeys sounds like a great show! I'm so excited to see it now. Toy Story is obvious but is it a different storyline than the movie but with the same characters? Disney Dreams sounds fun too. Wish they had it on the Wonder.

I need to book fairly soon as rooms book quickly at the resort I want to stay at. It's very very Mexico and I love it. www.catalinabeachresort.com

Your plans sound UNREAL! You do need a hand rubbing smiley.

Do you usually stay in Studios? You're going to love the one bedroom. They're so big.

The GCV are so cool. I can't wait to hear your thoughts about them. I fell in love with them. The Hearthstone Lounge is awesome too.

You are so lucky to get to travel so much. My bday is in March too.

You're mom is also very lucky. I hope my girls will hang out with me like you do your mom. It's very heartwarming. I have no relationship with my mother, long story, so it really warms my heart to see mother's and daughters who like to spend time together.

And score on Jamco CL!

Tell me about the transatlantic.



I'm always thinking of when and where we'd like to go but with 3 kids and a bazillion things going on and even more to pay for, we have to be conservative. Ideally I'm looking at Disneyland over Christmas, the cruise with Joshua, and then Mexico in February with Michael but we'll see. And then Gabby's HS grad cruise in either June or before she graduates during Spring Break of her senior year. We have a boat so I'm hoping for a week in Lake Powell over the summer but with the kids' camp and soccer tournaments pending, I just never know.

There's a really fabulous one called Disneys Believe (I think that's the name). It's my all time favorite one so far, so magical. Some tears escaped at the end. Toy Story follows the first movies story. It was good but not one that either of us needs to see in a while.

I've only ever stayed in studios, I can't wait to see a 1BR. I had to cancel a trip that had been booked with borrowed points, so had to find a use for those exact amount of points. Luckily I found something that worked. Hopefully this won't make me only want to stay in 1BRs.

I truly cherish the time we spend together. We had a pretty rough patch when I was a teenager, so I'm so happy we get along so well now. We have a lot of fun together. As much fun as you have with your kids I'm sure that will continue

All your plans sound great! How long will your Mexico trip be? Have you been there before? When can you book the December trip? Oh how nice to have a boat. I spent many childhood summers on a lake in Canada, going out on the boat was wonderful.

You know it's good when a few tears escape. I can't wait to see the shows.

I read that on the Alaska cruise, they're changing the Pirate Night to Pixar Pals. Not that I'm going to Alaska but wonder what's that will be like?

He'd be fine with it. I think he's just excited to be going somewhere not Disney. I found a great condo too that we're going to book. http://www.vrbo.com/116383 It's beautiful but up the side of a cliff. Basically most of Zihua is up the side of a mountain. The walk won't hurt going down.

It will. But you'll be fine going back to Studios too. DVC spoils us for sure. We usually stay in 2 bedrooms and when at Disneyland we were in a hotel room. It was beautiful and different and amazing but it wasn't a 2 bedroom villa.

That's so sweet and am glad you've made it to be so close. I hope you're right about my kids. I have virtually no relationship with my mother. It's too bad that she's missing out on her grandchildren but it's her choice really; no therapy, no contact. I've had to keep very tight boundaries.

That's right, I remember now. I thought I had asked. And you'll get a few days in Spain first; how wonderful. You'll meet a bunch of folks on the trip I'm sure.

We went there in 2008 and it was amazing. I haven't traveled extensively but have been to Mexico many times, South America, and then of course various US destinations. I think Zihua is my favorite thus far.

Having a boat has been yo key to surviving the Utah winters. Without the summer and boating to look forward to, I'm not sure we'd have lasted this long. Seriously though, I am not a cold weather person and neither are the kids. They boarded a few years back but just don't enjoy being cold. They're beach people like me. Poor DH is outnumbered. He loves to board and snowshoe etc....but I think these last two winters have taken their toll on his patience for the cold.

Changing Pirate Night say it isn't so! I love Pirate Night!

'Sigh of relief' I just reread that and you said on the Alaska cruise, whew!

That's what I'm worried about! I'm really worried I'll enjoy the washer/dryer too much.

Mom's birthday is the 7th too I'm a nurse, currently working at a dialysis clinic which I DO NOT like. I signed a contract so have some more time before I can leave. That's partly the reason for so many vacations planned, I just want to be away from there.

I'm sorry about your mom, that's got to be tough.

No worries, I'm happy to say it again, I love talking about vacation. Even solo it's going to be an amazing trip.

I'll have to look it up, I've never heard Zihua. I've been to Mexico twice and loved it both times. As much as I love hot climates and beaches Scotland is my favorite so far.

Oh my on the cold winters! I enjoy skiing but am not very good. I'd much rather be at the beach that's for sure. For years now I've wanted to move to FL, family has tethered me so far but it's always in the back if my mind.

As others said, Toy Story is the first movie's storyline, but they've written some new songs for it. It was a lot of fun! And the Wonder does have Disney Dreams!!

'Sigh of relief' I just reread that and you said on the Alaska cruise, whew!
I think that's a great move to change pirate night in Alaska - on the cruise last year, it really lost something without the fireworks...

It totally makes sense to change it for Alaska. Why didn't they do the fireworks?
