As you will recall (I had a calculus professor who said invariably said that every day... the real problem was that I didn't recall, apparently my brain is designed for remembering details of Disney vacations past and not for non-linear multi-variate functions.... hmm.... but I digress).....

I have been raised on trips to WDW thanks to grandparents who relocated to the Tampa area. DH had been once as a pre-teen and didn’t see what all the fuss was about. Despite his objections, mostly budgetary (is that a word?), I take DH and DS for a one day whirlwind tour of the MK. The day is truly magical-from DS being chosen to open Fantasyland to Tinkerbell’s flight. For more information, check out The Trip Report: How I got out of a mixed marriage.

You last saw us driving towards Tampa at approximately 11 pm on August 13th, 1998. DH is telling me how much he enjoyed our special day. So I decide to strike while the iron is hot and I tell him that I want to plan a return trip to WDW (he nods)
I would like to do it within a few years while DS is still young enough to appreciate the “magic” (he nods)
I would like to have an actual budget that includes souvenirs and a character dinner (another trip report within a trip report, (wow… Bill Shakespeare has nothin’ on me)…. My family took our biggest trip to WDW the October of 1981 for our introduction to EPCOT… we stayed at the contemporary for 3 nights and two shocking things happened… a) I overheard my parents (planners extraordinaire) call to see if we could extend our ressie by one day (no such luck) and b) our last morning we did not burn a park day but instead ate breakfast in the Contemporary (I have no idea what the restaurant was called…I was 6 … in fact I didn’t even realize the Contemp had a pool WITH A WATER SLIDE until I was an adult… my family wasted no time swimming while in Mickey’s World…. ) and Goofy came and ate with us!!! Other characters (Minnie, Chip, Dale) stopped by and gave hugs but Goofy actually sat at our table and wanted to drink my OJ and eat my dad’s croissant! This was huge- I knew I was royalty then and I am afraid I bragged rather shamelessly for years that I had eaten with Goofy. I am sure people just rolled their eyes at me but I was too young to care… ok back to the future which is now the past)
are you still with me honey... money for t-shirts and character dinners? (he nods)
I would like to stay onsite to experience Extra Magic Hours (formerly known as Surprise Mornings)… (He nods)…
I want to go to a water park which I had never done before (he looks somewhat skeptical)
And I want to go for a week….
And that is where I lost him.
Apparently the pixie dust has limits.

Yeah! You're back.

So how long until you got back?
How many days did you stay?
On or off property?
Character meal or CS?

I can't wait to find out.

Ohh, I find that hard to believe!

And even if it does, I have a feeling that your charm doesn't have any limits.

I'm back for more and waiting eagerly!

twinks! you're back. excellent. fear not the lawyering ways. ZZUB is a lawyer - he's funny, of course it sounds like he has to go into court so, he probably has to maintain a sense of humor. I, practice a type of law that is too boring to speak of. so i won't. speak, that is.

loved the intro to this thread. you have given me hope that I, too, may convert DH into a disney lover. first trip since he was 12 coming up in Aug. sans triplets. yes, there are people foolish enough to want to watch 3, 14 month olds for 6 days. ain't life great?

Their BACK!!!

My guess is the Twinkies & Twinkettes' made it back to WDW - perhaps even more than 1x since that first ever magical journey as a family..

The anticipation of another TR from Mrs. Twinkie is as good as a baseball game in the bottom of the 9th, game is tied, 2 on, 2 out and a full count..the teams leading hitter is up, he swings and it's a long fly ball to center field, it's up and it's..................






GONE??
Waiting for the rest of your tr! PATIENTLY as I can - your writing is just incredible! And sorry to hear about the pink eye, I hope the rest of your family doesn't get it!

Chip
