The Crew: Me (Val) (32) Biologist - DH (34) GIS analyist (map-maker, gonna put him to work!) DD8 -Cinderella (loves all things princess, but Cindy is her fave) DD4-Tinkerbell (also loves all things princess, but REALLY is in to the fairies) The story: We've been wanting to take our kids to WDW for years. Our oldest has been saving her birthday gift money for about 3-4 years now, trying to get to WDW. We've just never been able to make the leap. WDW is $$!! We wanted to stay on property, and since its about a 14-15 hr drive, mom (me) really wanted to fly. There is a NS flight from our city that gets there in 1 hr 20 mins! oh the difference! Anyway, we couldn't ever gain traction on the funds. :-( Life gets in the way doesn't it? We spotted the 48 hour southwest airfare sale back in July ($120 rt/each to MCO) and tried to make the $$ work. Not in the cards. We had to get a new AC unit this summer. Anyway, DH was talking to his dad on the phone, and he said, book it, I'll pay for parks/hotel if y'all can get the airfare. YEAH!! Early Christmas Present for us!!
