dh: nah, i' m good.

Ugh! That would drive me mad! My DH does like Disney a lot....although it would not be wise for me to bring it up right now while the Pats game is on....

Yesterday, he was actually saying how Disney can't come soon enough and that he's ready now...so am I!

DH is a huge Disney fan, thank goodness, but he's mocking me for the lengthy, detailed email I sent him, my mom, dad and brother tonight with the schedule for 3/31-4/3 with parks, dining and side notes, while asking for input on MK or Epcot on 4/3 so I could plan our breakfast that day. And also letting everyone know that Dad and I decided, without anyone else, to scrap our Brown Derby ADR for Yachtsman Steakhouse. Plus I'm reading menus to him now too! Either way, if no one else gives me input, I'm making the final decision for our last day! Lol!

at least he doesnt want to be involved in any of the planning and decision making; that would be unbearable for me to have to give up even one iota of control, lol. i would seriously lose sleep if i couldnt plan everything 100% the way i wanted. he' s so oblivious; every time i attempt to talk about it he goes "so, what are we going for 3 days?" EVERY TIME! Suuuuure, 3 days.

Excellent point!! Mine is like that too, he "comes along for the ride" but I just want someone to pipe up about our last day. DH won't, but it would be nice to hear from the other family members. Ugh.

OMG, mom just told me we have park hoppers. That's great, but I've never planned a trip with park hoppers. Now what!?! Everything was all coordinated, and now we have hoppers. Wiping the slate clean and starting all over. Lol!

funny about the DH! Mine is excited and ready to go now too! Yesterday he says: So where are we eating again? SO I name a few places and he says we are eating at Columbia harbor house right? I say uh yeah its a counter service we don't need an ADR for there.....he replies oh good then I want to eat there twice. I like it there too, but don't really want to eat lunch at the same place on both our trips to MK! oh well, kids like it too.

Anyone have any reviews recently from Boatwrights at POR?

My Dh has told me I'm obsessed. I didn't get this into the planning last year, but it was our first Disney trip last year. Now I want to be more organized, and we have food issues to deal with this year (DD has celiac).

DH is so impatient, though, that without my plan, he would be crabby about waiting in any lines, which is unavoidable going on spring break.

My DH will go on and on about how we have such great vacations because of all the planning and effort I put into them, and how most people aren't so lucky to have a wife that can plan and research so well, and how we "do" Disney so much better than anyone he knows because of how well I plan it, etc, etc.

But then, everytime he sees me at the computer working on something for the trip, or if I mention something about Disney that I just learned or though about, he rolls his eyes and tells me I'm obsessed, and blows it off like it doesn't matter and I'm wasting time.

How on earth does he think these awesome, well-planned trips happen??? Sigh. That's my vent for tonight.

I've got my husband excited about Disney, but not nearly as excited as I get. Reading "Surprise me" was like deja vu!

Eating is a big deal for my husband. He has a few things he must do, and then gives me free reign with everything else with the caveat -- Make sure they have seafood on the menu. (And he does not mean fish, he means shellfish.) But he really is not interested in hearing me talk about it, his eyes glaze over. I've decided to cancel our lunch Le Cellier reservation and I'm thinking seriously about Teppan Edo and I've been trying to explain to him what it is like, even sent him videos. He says as long as they have scallops or shrimp he'll be happy.

A man after my own heart.....I could happily eat shellfish at every single meal.. occasionally throw in a piece of beef and i'd be in heaven. I could go without chicken or pasta for the rest of my life.....unfortunately chicken & pasta is what my wallet usually allows me to eat, lol

When it comes to a hubby's involvement, I'm not sure what is worse...one that doesn't want to be involved or one that has "moments" of involvement...my DH loves Disney but trusts that I will make plans that he is happy with. When I tell him what the plans are, I think he only half listens...and then he'll have a moment where he actually thinks about it (after I've made the plans of course) and says "are we staying at XYZ resort, or eating at XYZ restaurant???" and then proceeds to tell me why he thinks his choices would be good...which typically leads to me having to change a few of my plans that I had already told him about.

I sure do love him though!

My hubby is the same. He says he needs a break from Disney! It's not exciting to him anymore Bc he says we go to often. Makes me sad. I get just as excited as the first time everytime! I wish he had that type of excitement.
His fav thing is also the food.
I do all the planning and he just goes along for the ride. I try and talk plans with him weeks in advance but I think he gets sick of hearing me. He just nods and agrees.
