Hi there

I have been reading your wedding trip report and it is wonderful and saw you had another one started.

I am so sorry for your recent loss - my sister went through the same thing a few years back so have some understanding. I now have the most beautiful nephew so we were lucky in the long run.

Onto brighter things - looking forward to this report and what you decide to do in the long run.

Cheers

Well I am back from my quick all-girls trip!

It was a really nice little get away and I needed it. The crowds were manageable, the weather was pretty good, and I love WDW at Christmas time! I will post a couple of pictures here when I get them uploaded, but I am writing a full report if you are interested (link in my signature).

On a note related to this PTR... While I was in WDW I got to thinking (which can be dangerous! lol). I was thinking about how awesome WDW is at Christmas, how nice the weather was, and how DH has never been that time of year. So I am currently thinking about switching our trip to December (if we decide on WDW)! I haven't even really started with this trip and I am already changing things lol But DH has seasonal allergies and isn't a fan of the heat and humidity so I think that he would enjoy WDW so much more in December. I mentioned this to him already and he really seems up for it!! We could still use it as an Anniversary trip, it will just be a bit later.

Anyway, now I have even more thinking and planning to do! I think that WDW/cruise is our most likely trip option at this point, and switching it to December won't be a big deal. Only time will tell!

First, I want to tell you how sorry I am about your loss. In 2000, I lost a baby (I named him/her Lee) and it was one of the hardest times of my life.

I am glad you are doing this from the initial planning! Christmas is Disney is awesome!

You are so right Krysten. There are so many of us who have lost babies. Mine was in 2002 at 14 weeks. We named her Abigail Grace.

Now...on to happier news, how are the plans coming along???

I thought that I would post some pictures from my December trip here. Just in case anyone wants to see them










Those are just some of my favourite shots from the trip!

I didn't make it on to wish everyone a Merry Christmas before hand, but I hope that you all had wonderful holidays! I had a really great Christmas myself, and it made me once again be thankful for my family.

Teeny update on my thoughts...

The more that I think about it, the more that I want to go to WDW in December with DH. I have to still talk with him and get the details down, but it looks like WDW (and possibly a cruise) is the front runner!

I have done a teeny bit of research (in between Christmas stuff and cleaning up after it all) and prices look good for September and December.

As for our other trip options:

1) As much as I'd really love to go to Aulani, I don't think that finances will be in order to take the trip that we want next year. I know that I won't go to Hawaii on a regular basis so when I do go, I want to make sure that I do it the best way that I can. This includes an ocean view room and a longish stay (probably 12ish days). So this trip might have to go on the back burner for a few years.

2) I would love to see California, but I'm just not "feeling it" right now. More research and a talk with DH is needed before I make any real decisions, but I honestly think that I would rather go back to WDW.

Christmas at Disney is awesome, and it's on my Bucket List (for the family, I went by myself in 2009) that will hopefully be rectified next near!

That is a great thing to be on your bucket list! I haven't been to WDW at Christmas (before this trip) in 10 years and I forgot how amazing it is. Now I want to go again and take DH. I hope that you make it there for Christmas soon!
