So, yesterday I get a phone call from a friend, not close but a friend. His son told him that if he wants to plan a trip to WDW, he needs to call me!! Our kids are friends. So he offers to buy me lunch so he can 'pick my brain' about Disney. Okay. So there we sit. He tells me that he and his wife are kicking around the idea of going to WDW with the three kids (19, 13 and 10). Okay. I ask him when they are thinking of going....wait for it, are you ready??? In three weeks. Oh, and they want to be there for July 4!!! I looked at him and told him that he was out of his mind, that I wouldn't take a free vacation at WDW if it meant being there for that week!! He has nothing planned, has done no research. He talked to JB and got a price for a pkg through them..came to $7000!!! I told him to book airfare himself and then to call Disney and book their stay with them. He had no idea where they wanted to stay...said a nice hotel but one that wasn't a boatload of money!! And one he could maybe walk to the parks like at DL!!! Oh dear God!! I told him he needed to look at the PassPorter I gave him, to decide what resorts appealed to them and to call Disney today!!!! He wasn't going to find much available!!! Hopefully he reads the book, checks out the sites I gave him to check out and does something today. I thought you all might get a chuckle out of someone who does no planning whatsoever..compared to us, the nuts who start planning for the next trip while still on the current one!!!
