Our last WDW trip was October of 2010.

Well, maybe this "counts" but it doesn't count to me - last April I chaperoned my daughter's high school band on their Spring Band Tour trip to Southern California. It was a whirlwind trip - literally 5 days, and 2 of those days were solid 24-hour straight through driving days to get there and back again on a bus full of teenagers. Once we got to Cali, we had a full schedule of things planned, from Universal Studios, to eating seafood on the beach, to 1 not-even-full day at Disneyland. The kids participated in the Disney Performing Arts program, which was SO cool, but took up most of the afternoon. Then we had to pack back into the bus and we started our journey home again - we didn't even get to stay for fireworks. All that did was whet my Disney appetite. I got to ride Pirates, and Haunted Mansion, and The Jungle Cruise. I got to explore the New Pirates' Island, and eat lunch at the Plaza - my favorite place to eat in Disneyland (other than Blue Bayou, of course, but we didn't want to spend that kind of time). But that was about it. And I spent about half my time meeting up with various groups of kids, looking for the GHS tee shirts, and counting noses.

Unfortunately, I don't see myself getting back to WDW any time soon, as much as I want to SOOOO badly. It isn't the cost of the vacation itself, it is the cost of getting there. Airline costs for my family of 5 have been running about $3000 every time I have checked. Add another $3000-$5000 for the WDW portion and that is WAY too rich for my budget.

I will probaby get to California to go to Disneyland again before I get back to WDW - and that's OK. We can drive there (big plus) , and I'd like to see the new CarsLand, etc. But I sure will miss Epcot!!

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.
Our October trip of 2012 was 6 weeks after my DS commited suicide. As a matter of fact he was suppose to join us on our trip.
Anyways I was nervous how it was going to be especially for my DH; however, I am happy to report it was a great distraction! Their were sad moments for sure, but we did what we could in memory of our son. We had flattey made to look like him and had a family picture taken w/ our Carlton flattey, we rode his favorite rides, ate where he loved to go and looking back it felt like he was really with us!

Good Luck!

Last trip June 2009. Had gone yearly from 2005 thru 2009 then oldest started high school and dang those high school sports anyway. She is starting her senior year 9/13 and we are going to squeeze in a trip 7/13 after softball is over and before soccer starts. Hope we don't pass out from heat stroke

We went 11/29-12/8/12 and we miss it already (especially the weather)! No other trip is planned for a while. I'd like to go back in about two years, but we'll have to see if it's do-able.
