First, remember back 3-4 months ago I posted that my DH told me that he would book our airline reservations (a first for him in 29 years of marriage.) Well I had the thought that our kids might be coming to WDW to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary.

DH said he was trying to keep everything a surprise but he had to tell me yesterday morning because I was getting ready to book and pay for Food & Wine special activities. He thought I would put in requests through IPO next week and he had already talked to them so they were not going to book them. Then he learned I was booking yesterday by phone so he had to tell me. So here is my disappointing and yet exciting news.

Our kids are not coming to WDW at all…they can’t afford it and we can’t afford to pay for them all to come. I certainly can understand that.

We are leaving WDW before the Swan & Dolphin Wine and Dine. So I will not be meeting you all and no DIS meet for me. (we need a kicking dirt smilie here) This part has been really difficult for me to take as I was so excited to finally meet you all in person. Along with all of us enjoying seminars, The Ditch, and Wine and Dine with you all as well as all the other possible get togethers with everyone.

Now to the exciting part. I don’t know all the details…but he told me the following. “We are leaving Florida for a second vacation that involves ocean, sand and one of the best times in your life…” So what do you all think it is? He is NOT talking, just smiling a lot! And I haven't seen any hints of things on our credit card or finances. I really don’t think it is a Disney cruise or any cruise as I would need at least one formal nights clothing and so would he....right?

Is it strange to be sad and yet excited at the same time. He told me today when we will be leaving WDW and I have been cancelling days at AKL CL and Shades of Green.

Ann
I am sorry that you have to leave WDW earlier than you were hoping for and that you will be missing some of the things you had look forward to, but this new change sounds exciting.

I wonder what Tim has up his sleave. Could it be some beautiful island on the East Coast? Or, even though you have already been to Hawaii, would he return and take you to Aulani?

Whatever it is, it sounds exciting.

Will be in touch,
Kathy
I have to say Aulani is what I thought of straight away.

I will keep you all posted.

Ann
Well maybe it is a cruise after all. Initially I thought if it is a cruise, it would be a Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy, which sets sail on October 6th, but then when I saw you were leaving on October 5th as you had to be somewhere on the 6th, I was then thinking maybe the Magic out of Galveston, which also sets sail on the 6th.

Ann - thanks for checking in with your updated plans as you know them. It sounds so very exciting for you although I am so very sad that we won't get to meet.

Ann, I think this is exciting and if David did this to me, I would be excited for the surprise but it would drive me crazy at the same time. I would bug him forever and then he would break down and tell me, he can't keep things like this from me...

But I think it is wonderful!

Also, you don't have to go to a formal night on the cruises and they also rent gowns and tux on them... you can even get shoes...all he would have to tell them is your sizes and it would all be done!

I am excited for you....

I wasn't trying to create drama or keep everyone is suspense. Things just moved really, really fast yesterday with my hubby stopping me in mid-dial to book F&W. Plus it took me awhile to take it all in and process such a major change to a trip that I have been planning for months. Not, that I was upset with him or anything....he just never does anything like this... EVER.

Thank you all for your friendship and caring. I realize that I have as many or more friends on the DIS than in real life.

Ann
I feel the same way about everyone here, we have shared so much of our lives, I feel like I know some of you better than my 3D friends

Sorry, I don't remember the date - but to the best of my recollection, it isn't as early as Osborne Lights and MVMCP...... IIRC, it was around Thanksgiving and the tree appeared (fully decorated) overnight!

Same here. So close - maybe next time. We will miss you, but we are so excited for your surprise celebration!

From the Christmas specials I've seen I think it's the night after Thanksgiving.
