We usually go about 3 times a year. Last trip was August 2012. Don't have anything planned so far for this year but I am having really bad withdrawal pains.....

I've never been to Disney World, but the last time I was at Disneyland was June 2011. We seem to be on an every-other-year pattern.
Going on our first WDW trip in spring 2013!
Me, DH, DD8, DS6 (will be 9 and 7 for our trip)

We've scaled back a bit, we use to be annual visitors but the restaurants quality has kind of bummed us out. eating is a big thing for us on vacations.

Anyhoo, we're also heading to London in May so I think this may be it for disney for a while.

We took our daughter there to celebrate her 21st birthday...2 years ago. One of the reasons I get so nostalgic and teary when I walk down Main St., see Wishes etc, is because I know I won't be back for awhile. I think about time passing and family changing and kids getting older, wondering when it will be that I will visit again and what things will have occured in my life...it sounds like a downer but really each time I go back it is rich with joy and gratitude. Kind of like LIFE, that bittersweet thing.

Our last trip was two years ago, January 2011.

I'm ready to go again but DH isn't. He's not as "into" Disney as I am.

We got our first pin code a couple months ago, and I seriously thought about a solo trip but then added it up and realized what WE could do with that money together, and since we already have our big winter vacation coming up later this month, I didn't do it.

We were talking about it just the other day though, and I mentioned maybe taking someone else with me (our daughter, granddaughter, a friend, etc.) sometime and he said if I wanted to do that he wouldn't mind. He'd rather I go with someone else and have a good time, instead of dragging him along.

So, maybe another year or so and I'll get back there.

I took my Mom for what I knew was her last trip, in November of 2010.

I had taken her to Disney every year since 1973, usually with my daughter, then my grandkids.

That November was the first, and last, time we ever went together, just the two of us. Mom had Alzheimer's, and it was progressing. The meds no longer worked for her.

Was it difficult? Yes. Did I cry in private, knowing it was her last trip? Yes. Am I glad we went? Yes.

Couldn't stay in AK, MGM, or EPCOT for more than a few hours, because it so tired her. But something magical happened the day we went to the Magic Kingdom. We went at rope drop, and stayed all day. She enjoyed it so much, rode most rides, watched the parades. Truly magical. I will never forget her smiles.

Her Alzheimer's progressed rapidly after that, so my annual trips were halted while I was her primary caregiver. She passed away in July of 2012, peacefully at home.

I have a trip planned for June of this year, taking my granddaughters. It will be bittersweet. But as delswife so poignantly wrote before her own death, about her Dad's passing, Disney "is the only place we can visit him. This is where my kids will visit me when I die."

My grandkids and I will be "visiting" Mom in June.
