I debated posting this, for fear if I do, our (ok, well, my) plans for our next WDW trip may not pan out. BUT Dh gave me the go ahead to book (silly, silly dh, doesn't know that prices for 2010 have not be released yet) last weekend when we got into a fight. Heck, if I knew that was all it would take, we'd fight all the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like I said, I had my doubts about posting this, but my friends are all SICK, of hearing about my plans for WDW...they are not Disney lovers like we are (then again, maybe I am the sick one, afterall, this is more of an obsession than a want to go on vacation). So a trip report I will start!!!!!!! In a way it will be like 3 in one...that is I leave in 19 days for OBX, come home for a week then leave for VEGAS!! Finally when I get back the REAL WDW planning will start! DH didn't want to go back to WDW again (we had been in '06 and '08), but the past few months have been hard for me. My 13yo neice had been living with us for 3 years, well she decided to move back in with her mom once school was over. I fear this is not the best decision for her, but it was not mine to make. Our last 2 trips (DH and the boys' only trips) were 1st with my family in Sept 2006 and then with his parents in 08. In '06 we (my dad, his wife, their then 6mo old twins, me, DH, our boys then 1.5 and 2.5, my best friend, my DN and my brother) drove from PA in a 15 pass van. We had a nice time, crazy, but nice! Dh had NO desire to ever go see "some overgrown, over priced RAT" before my dad offered to pay for our trip with money he got from my grandmothers estate. He got there and called his mom, telling her how cool everything was. She seemed interested in going, as they had never been before. So Oct 2008 we went with his parents. This time we rented a 12 pass van and drove from PA with me, DH, DN who was 13, DS then age 3, DS then age 4, MIL and FIL. I had magical plans for this trip. Sadly my MIL was happy to stay in the resort the ENTIRE time. WE did get her out, but it was only for short periods. It was less than magical (I know they say any day in Disney is better than a day at home, BUT you know how you plan and plan for a year and then 'newbies' don't care for it......way to let the air out of a balloon). I came home REALLY wanting to go back, depressed when DH said we needed a roof on the house and couldn't afford it. It looked like no trip for Star, but then DN moved out and a trip for 2 adults and 2 children all in 1 room became possible. Not that I am happy at all DN is not with us anymore, but at least there is a silver lining!
