You know, I know so many people who go to the Jersey shore every year (or another shore town) for vacation, and no one bats an eye saying 'you're going again?!' but for some reason Disney is different to people?? In any case if it makes us happy, that's all that matters. I think we get it and see all there is to enjoy at WDW. Heck my husband who says 'we have to go to other places' really wanted to go for F&W this year! I know some friends are probably saying 'again' but I say you should see how and what we do there!

In any case, I look forward to your live reports Erika! I would be too excited to sleep too. If it were up to me I would go every year (which I basically have since 2010).

I agree the new ones haven't been nearly as nice, and the quality has gotten really flimsy. These have lasted a long time!

Last minute packing is in full force!! Tonight is our luxurious night at the airport hotel! Tomorrow morning POLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know what you mean.....people rent the SAME beach cottage EVERY summer and no one says a word-you go to Disney more than once and everyone comments. I don't get it!

The other thing people always seem to comment on is how expensive Disney is. Well, really if you know what you are doing it isn't anymore than a beach vacation. I've priced out different types of vacations and you get a lot for your money in Disney. Heck we are going to DC for 3 nights this fall and it's practically the same as if we were going to WDW.

Excited for the live report-always nice for us sitting at home during a rainy summer to live through those who are where we'd rather be!!! Can't wait for your trip!

We buy APs and we spread out payments on our vacations over the year. This trip we are going on now basically only cost us the room (with AP discount) and food. We already had park tickets and we used Southwest points for our airfare. What could be a better bargain???

You are totally correct about other people vacationing at other places other than Disney, but pretty much the same places year after year and nothing is said. But I will say, in our area, many people will do a beach type vacation in Florida for much less than we do Disney. We live about oh, 400 miles from the northern Florida beaches, so its not that far to head to the beaches.

Disney can be expensive. And people know this. And if you have the money to go down there every other year, as we have had for the past 6-7 years, people tend to get jealous. I can only imagine if we got to go every year, multiple times per year, what they would say! Its all about the cost for people, in my area. It is jealousy plain and simple. I have experienced with women many times.

How are you ever going to compete with the wonderful (and free) birthday surprise that your other son received when you stayed at the YC?

This has plagued me for the last month!!!!!!!!! Luckily he's old enough to understand that was a very special situation and not something we ordered ourselves. I'm sure he will be OK but part of me wonders if he's hoping for something major to happen. I have dropped hints the last few weeks asking him if it would be cool to have the room decorated and he's always said he doesn't need anything special. ((this boy is the sweetest, kindest, most loving child on the planet by the way)) Now if the tables were turned and it was our younger son's birthday next week I would definitely have to shell the money out because he would take inventory that every present was identical and equal!
