My husband and I will take a weekend trip to New Orleans. Our DVC pts are being used this year for our son's honeymoon.
We're also expecting our first grandchild. Our daughter has diabetes and her OB is keeping a close eye on her. She will probably start seeing a high risk doctor pretty soon. We don't want to be far from home in case she needs us.
We are planning our grand baby's first WDW trip in a couple of years though.

I don't know what we are doing this year. In July we have a wedding in CT so we are spending three days there, we always go to the Catskills in upstate NY for a week but due to a serious illness in a family member we may cancel that. Of course I'd love to go to disney but my DH would like a beach vacation. I've been looking into the gulf side of FL - hopefully a week in the summer.

A few weeks in the UK to visit hubby's family and our friends. Not what I would 100% call a vacation but I love his family and they live in touristy areas (London, Canturbury and Maidstone) so we try to take the kids to do a few fun things when there. I can't wait to meet my 4 nieces and nephews that have been born in the last 2 years.

Our real vacation will be a few weeks at Disney World. We don't go to the parks every day (our kids are only 3 and 5) so it is much more relaxing.

With one kid going off to college in the fall, and one kid going to the 2014 Rose Parade in Dec/January, our vacation fund is shot.

I am hoping to rent my friend's place outside of Rehoboth Beach for a couple of days. She offers the "old friends" rate- which is very affordable!

If the planets all align, we are hoping to tag along with my DS's high school band and head to Pasadena. I'm not sure how much this will cost us, but oldest DS wants this to be his graduation trip. We will probably have to take out a loan or open a line of credit, because I don't think we will be able to pull it off otherwise. I have NEVER EVER put a vacation on credit (always cash, every.single.time) and this makes me extremely antsy. But you only march in the Rose Parade once and I really want to be there for the experience!!

For Easter/spring break we are heading to my parents' house in Florida. It's midstate. It will be pretty laid back - the kids will swim everyday and we will just hang out. We may head to Typhoon Lagoon one day.

In May DH and I are going to Maui for a week. He earned this trip thru his job so they are paying for hotel, airfare and many of the meals. That's my kind of vacation!

And finally at the end of July we are taking our family vacation, this year it's to WDW. We usually go every other year but we skipped last year because the baby was so little - we went to the beach instead. Can't wait to get back!

Looks like Hawaii in June with DVC. We have 6 nights booked at Aulani. I just have to pull together the rest.

We have our Marriott timeshare with weeks to use, so I'm also thinking if going to Williamsburg, but I need to run it by the family.
