I am NOT an animal person, but the girls wanted a pet, and DH LOVES cats and grew up with them....and wouldn't you know, I am absolutely IN LOVE with this cat.

We have a bond. I am his human.

Planning a new trip!!!!!

One sure way to distract me from obsessing over my current Disney trip...is to start planning a NEW Disney trip!!!

I wasn't thinking I would have that chance because next year, DH and I had decided to give Atlantis a try in Feb 2014, and subsequently skip Disney next year

I agreed because we will have had four lengthy trips in 3.5 years. DH loves Disney but also wants our girls to have other experiences, yada, yada, yada...

Planning an Atlantis vacation wasn't as fun as planning Disney....but guess what?????

Last night, DH said that he thinks we can do BOTH!!!!! Atlantis in Feb 2014 and then Disney in August 2014!!!!!

I'm so excited!! He's the best! He jokingly said that he wasn't sure how I would react not being in my happy place next year, and also KNEW I wouldn't be able to stay away once the Mine Train ride opens!!!

We've picked the dates 8/16/14 - 8/24/14. Subject to change based on available discounts... We are planning on staying at the Poly.

So now....I am going to fine tune the planning of this current trip, YC CL here we come!!!!

Update

Well, this trip just keeps evolving...

Some background on the most recent change...

I have a best friend. She is NOT Disney obsessed. Her and her husband literally break out in hives at the thought of taking their 3 kids (ages 3,5, and 9) to Disney. They do not understand our Disney love and they certainly don't understand why we go year after year after year.

Their one experience was 2.5 years ago and it was a day trip to MK while visiting Florida...

Fast forward to now. My BFF constantly makes fun of me because of my Disney ways...well, guess who decided that they are going to Disney in April too??? My BFF and family!!!!

When they booked they initially booked at POR b/c that was the cheapest option, but within a day, they changed their reservation to YC!!!!

It is my mission to make this family a Disney loving crew!!!

We have made some modifications to our reservations. I have cancelled Cape May Cafe (which I was the only one excited about) and picked up Biergarten for all nine of us (Biergarten is one of our favorites and I think the will love it!!)
I also want to get reservations for the Wishes Dessert Party, so they can experience Wishes in a less crowded atmosphere.

Now I kind of feel like I want this awesome itinerary to blow their socks off, but they just said they will do what we do sooooo....this should be interesting!!!

Stay tuned....BFF and her kiddos will be here any minute to do some itinerary planning before we all head out to dinner and Disney on Ice tonight!!!

One good thing about it is, we are locked at the YC now...it would be very difficult to move 9 people!!!

Awww...I love Disney on Ice. So much fun.
I'm not sure how I'd feel about planning a trip with a non-Disney loving friend. However, I don't think you can go wrong staying at the Yacht Club for your first trip. If the fact that you can walk to two Disney parks doesn't get them, I'm sure Storm-a-long Bay will!

Are you trying to get the dessert party on any particular day? We are hoping for the 26th, it's our anniversary! Waiting for it to open is nerve wracking! I'm so worried that we won't get it...

It's actually not their 1st trip...sort of....they did bring their kids about 2 years ago...but they stayed off site, did 1 day at MK and that's it...they were traumatized. This time, they will have a whole week, be onsite, and be with us, who will guide the way!!! They are actually really excited!!!

Thanks for the kind words!!! Both Biergarten and Via are great places, but if I had to choose between the two, it's Via Napoli hands down!!! De-lish!!!

Yes, we actually have 3 dates that will work for the party of 9 we need it for now...I have IPO monitoring for the dates to open up and they will book for us. We are looking at either 4/20, 4/21, or 4/23. Fingers crossed!!!

Nice!!!

I wish PIF would stop me, but it never has! We have been PIF for quite some time and I have still made changes

But, our last change to YC CL has stood for about a month now...that's got to be some kind of record for me...and now that our friends are staying there too, I won't be changing, unless I want to be responsible for moving 9 people!!!
