    Hi to all! I have the WDW bug soooo bad! I got an email from delta on great rates for the end of Jan/early Feb-so, being disney-curious I played around with some dates-while looking @ DH's work schedule. Well-Well I said to myself he's off 1/31-2/4 and we still have 3 days tix-non expiring left! So while I had those plane tix in limbo- I called WDW and they had a std view at the yacht club for 2/1-2/4. So I grabbed it! Our flight doesn't get in till midnite- I figure we can stay at the Hyatt in the airport;or I can keep calling back to add that 1st nite! So-I still have to tell DH-but I am beyond excited!!! I need to get out of this cold and gloomy gray weather -even if for only 4 days!! Another diss'er in need of a support group....

    4 days is a great trip!
    When you said "quick" I thought it was going to be 48 hours or less!
    Have a great time!

    hey frankiesmom, I'm from Rochester too. I know just what you mean about escaping this gloomy winter. You made the right choice! You'll have a blast. Sometimes the last minute trips are the most fun.

    That's what I was thinking! For us, 4 days is a normal trip...I'd absolutely love to stay a lot longer!!

    Hi. I am from Auburn not to far from Rochester and been searching for great prices and what not for a Disney Vacation. I wish I could find some great prices. I never have luck. I agree this cold is for the birds and this weekend doesn't look good weather wise either.

    DS and I did a weekend trip for the Expedition Everest preview, which fell in January. We LOVED it and it was a great escape from the cold northeast winter.

    ENJOY:cool1:

    No way you're nuts! I do the same thing all the time. I'm down in New Smyrna Beach this week for work, and I extended my stay so I could hop over to the parks just for one day! I love last min. sneak attack Disney trips. I hope your husband is thrilled.

    Wow, how nice! I know what you mean about the gloomy weather. I'm in Philly and I just returned from WDW on Saturday, and miss it tons. I'm going back to Naples, FL on Sunday for a week for a family wedding, so I plan to work on my tan haha as there's not much else to do there I've heard. I'm still giddy when looking at the flip-flop tan lines from last week! Enjoy!!

    You're not crazy. We decided to do the same thing the week before you.

    As long as you have the money and the time, go for it!!
