Mom & Son - The Last Time? An August TIW DR! 10/22 - I am Back. Updates x 8!
So, as the title says, I truly believe this is the last “Mom & Son” trip. Don’t get me wrong, I know that DS and I will be in Disney again but I don’t believe it will be just the two us. He is going off to college next year so I am guessing future trips will include DH and of course, his “DOther”.
For those of you that do not know us and our story, here is a brief recap. Back in 2008 we had a family trip planned when DH realized that he could not take the time from work. Rather than cancel, he urged me to go with DS. Thus our Mom & Son trips were born.
Here we are ---
We took family trips in 2009, 2010 (to Disneyland), 2011 and 2012, While we were there last year, DH said that he wanted me to have another “Mom & Son” trip this year as DS will be going off to school. While we were there, we upgraded our tickets to APs. And they burned a hold in my pocket causing our Mom & Son Food & Wine trip last November and our Mom & Son Flower & Garden trip this past March.
Now for the details - When? August 11th thru the 20th. We are actually getting on the train in NYC on the 10th. We took the train down one other time and enjoyed it. Plus DH travels by Amtrak so much that our bedroom car is free! All meals are included as well.
Where? Caribbean Beach. I want to one day say that I have stayed at all of the Resorts so it seemed a good time to try this one.
Most of our other trips have included the DxDDP. This trip we are giving TIW a try, no dining plan. I do love deluxe dining but with the constant price increases, it just doesn’t make sense unless it is with free dining plus the upgrade. And I admit that it is a lot of food. We rarely finish our meals and never get to enjoy desserts and other snacks. So this trip we will eat more QS, probably share several appetizers at some meals and split entrees at others. All so we can enjoy more snacks! And on top of that, we are trying many new restaurants.
I hope you all will come along for the ride on what will be a very bittersweet trip for me! Only 24 days to go … well, 23 really because today is just about over! I can't wait to get there, but then I know it will go by so fast!
