Art of Animation. Seriously considered Riverside, though!

Are you surprising your boys? We decided against it, although I don't think they fully comprehend it yet. We're doing Disney movie nights and just bought them the Birnbaum Kids Guide for Christmas.

We've found them at the UK pavilion in Epcot, over in the toy store area. Other than that, the only places I've seen them is Crystal Palace and the 1900 Park Fare breakfast.

We are surprising them!!! My oldest will turn 8 3 days before we leave and the youngest will turn 4 while we are in Disney.

We will tell them when we get to the airport. They have never been on a plane since we drive to most of our vacations. They wont have a clue!

Just this morning, the kids were asking when we could take them to Disney! I told them maybe in a year or so..hahaha

I may be crazy.

I found a SW flight for $100 arrival and $110 depature. The arrival is a non-stop. I changed the arrival flight I had booked to the $100 flight (cost difference $7 in my favor). Actually, $84 in savings since I had to change the flight date anyway and they are $184 currently. I am planning on booking the departure flight soon.

The catch is that these flights are out of Austin. Austin if 5.5 hours from my house and an extra 3 hours farther than Dallas. It saves $300 and gives us at least one non-stop. The arrival times are the same as the more expensive Dallas flight. We would be paying for parking at Dallas anyway so that is a wash. I doubt we would have gone down the night before like we will now, but it's possible. Real savings is $126. My DH is all for it. I'm thinking of it as a third vacation destination

Is this taking saving money too far?

I do the same thing to my kids. We talk about Disney all the time (they don't know we're going) and I always say "maybe we'll go again in like 2 or 3 years" and they're like "Nooooooo!!! Not THAT long!" and I just shrug and am like "it's a lot of money, it takes a few years to save for it."

Got our confirmation!

We're staying at the POP Century from April 23-30, 2013. I have several ADR's made. However, I won't post here until I have the opportunity to go over plans with my travel companions.

I'm so excited!!

Feeling buyers remorse about our reservation at BC...basically because of all the money we are spending on Christmas, coupled with the fact that both DH and I need new tires for our cars....sooooooo....we changed our 10 night reservation to POR Royal Rooms!!!

And the kicker....now we are PAID IN FULL!!!!!
