Need to get hubby excited about trip

This is my DH 3rd trip since we met. (I have been there many more times) The first time I suprised him. Needless to say he was not excited!! (we didn't have kids yet, so he didn't get why we were going.) the 2nd time our DS was 2, and it was his (DH) Christmas gift to us. Had fun, but still said it was not his type of vaca. This time, he is soooo in need of a vacation from work that he is ACTUALLY looking forward to going. (he says it is because of needed time off...but I think the pixie dust is taking over)

Anyway, does anyone have a link or list of "construction" magic? Like Facts, secerets, ect?? I think DH would really enjoy that. I already told him about the undercover security thread from a week or so ago, and think he will have fun playing spot the UC. Anything to get him involved!!

The Imagineering Field Guides are great for behind the scenes stuff. I can't recommend them highly enough. They have a lot of great information about the thought processes behind designs and stuff.

I can give you some suggestions, but I don't think they would be appropriate on a family board.

Is this something easy to find at a regular book store, or just in the world???

As Twokids already pointed out, your thread title is misleading. I was about to suggest a shopping trip to Victoria's Secret.

I happened to walk by the travel section at Borders the other day - and saw this book:
http://www.borders.com/online/store/...sku=1605500631

I am sure if you look online or at a local bookstore you can find it or something like it. I also saw Imagineering Field guides for each park.

The Imagineering books are available on ebay and Amazon. Amazon has some other really neat looking titles too.

I have the same problem with dbf. My tip is find out what he enjoys about Disney...if it's hanging by the pool, golfing, fishing ...whatever. Give him the info and let him plan some time for himself at Disney.

Here's some cool info about R'nRC.
http://www.rocknrollercoaster.com/secrets

He might also like taking a tour there.
It gives you a whole different outlook on WDW.

My husband, who really isn't a big fan of the parks, absolutely enjoyed the Backstage Magic Tour.

Ok IF I had a husband or any body else who did not like, want to go to WDW I would simply leave them at home. I wouldn't even try. Some folks just don't like it and I don't want "those" folks with me.

So it may not be his type of trip. That is fine. Though do you ever plan vacations to anywhere else? Or perhaps you could couple in a beach trip with a visit to WDW. Some people will just not love Disney vacations, nothing wrong with that. Perhaps going somewhere that he wants to go would be good. It doesn't always have to be Disney. You have already been twice before with him.

He does wind up having fun, I think he just drags his feet a little because he doesn't want anyone to think the the "tough guy" wants to go to Disney. Plus, I enjoy spending time with him and as a family...feet dragging or not before hand, it wouldn't be the same without him.
