Omg booked another trip!!

I thought I would be over this addiction but alas no. We are going to California and DL, April 2013 for just over a month

At this stage nothing else planned or booked.

When the kids end up with no inheritance they will know it all went to Walt and the good ol USA.

Thought i would let all the beautiful Disboarders know first.

Does anyone else have to tell family they are using frequent flyer points so that they don't get the "you just went there last year" abuse??

Thats awesome Congrats on booking i dont think this is an addiction you can ever get over
Lets just say we have not been getting a very good response from some people about buying DVC the you should of used that money for a house has set in Lets just say my response to them is that this enables us to buy a house and still have holidays as well

Well done marvel!!! It's fantastic that you are able to go again!!
What I say (under my breath) to the nay-sayers that walk among us - "When you pay for my holidays I'll go where you want me to go! Until then, I go where I want to go!!" Works for me...!!!!
You go ahead and make those memories that others are jealous of!

MY NAME IS MIA AND I CONFESS TO SAYING OH FREQUENT FLYER POINTS (It is the truth for my next non Disney trip)!

Have a blast! They just don't know what fun they are missing out on. And it also means a few less people in line

We all need to visit WDA (Walt Disney Anonymous)


or

Walt Disney Australia

or....

Cant wait to hear more of the plans

We had a visit from my Mum today and all the kids were sworn to secrecy not to mention a word. I couldn't cope with the lecture today

Congrats on booking another trip. That is wonderful news.

And I love the FF points idea, I might have to use it.

Congratulations!

Just tell them that you're meeting some friends there....They are specially heading there to meet with you.

That's what I'm doing for next year's trip and everyone just says "how nice to have on-line friends like that".



















Of course....no one has asked me the name of my friends yet....Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Pluto.

thanks everyone, it's great to have everyone on DIS that understands the addiction. I am only happy when planning a trip or being on one!!

I have to say the DVC interests me as well, sounds like a good reason to go every single year !!

Congrats Marvel!

We're also looking into DVC to see whether it will be worthwhile for us...
