I have been reading these Disboards for the past few weeks. I am addicted! All I want to do when I get home from work is log on here and read about everyone's trip and experience. Tonight, while reading in the PTR's, I thought I would add our PTR. Our vacation is a surprise for our DS12 and DS7. They think we are going on a 5 day WDW vacation with our best friends and their DD 11 and DD6 (who also think we are going on the 5 day WDW trip). Our school will be on Fall Break during this week so we planned our vacation in the spring of this year. We had just paid our final payment for our WDW vacation and were at dinner discussing our plans. We were excited about our trip because we got the free dining plan and had never done that before. The adults were a little apprehensive because it would not be a relaxing trip because we would be going from park to park for 5 days. We all love Disney and were looking forward to it but knew it wouldn't be so relaxing. We discussed looking at DCL for our Fall Break 2013. We cruised during Fall Break 2011. It was relaxing and so much fun even thought it wasn't DCL. We have always wanted to do a cruise on DCL but didn't think we could afford it. I came home from dinner and started researching for 2013. I accidentally left 2012 in the date field. When it came up, the price was only $212.00 more than what we had paid for 5 days at WDW. I did a double take. I pulled up another screen and searched again. It came up with the same price. I wanted to shout out loud!!!! I texted my bff and said we could get a 7 day DCL cruise on the Fantasy, DCL's newest ship, for $212.00 more than what we paid for our WDW trip. She didn't believe me!!!! To make a long story short, we called our travel agent and she said the deal was real and that she would book it for us that night. Needless to say, I didn't sleep that night and have been losing sleep ever since. Our reservation is for GTY, Category IGT, Inside Stateroom with Restrictions. We didn't care what room we were in because we would only be sleeping and showering there. Our room has not been assigned yet. I check everyday. I have also been reading all of the posts on here everyday. We are not telling our kids because we want to surprise them. When we discuss our cruise we discuss it as our "Disney Vacation". I would love some suggestions on how to reveal the surprise to them. Please let me know if you have any cool ideas. I will be posting more tomorrow. I am going to try to get some sleep tonight. Thanks for reading and hope you will follow our adventure to surprise our children.
