So it's been 7+ years since my first trip to WDW. DW and I took my DS9 when he was only 18mo and planned nothing. Seriously we knew where we were staying (her parents had a timeshare in the area) and we bought a 4 day park hopper pass but thats it. Even though we had a good time, DW and I realized we could not do that again without more planning. Well, after the trip DW and I found out she was expecting again so second trip plans would have to wait. Then I got laid off (actually I worked in real estate and the market started to drop) so we could not financially afford a second trip. Finally just when we thought we could go again, we got pregnant again and the economy bottomed out. For a while it didnt seem like we would ever go back even though I was able to change industries and found a well paying job for a well established bank. Then tax season 2011 came. DW and I sat down and pulled out the bills/collection notices as we always do and to our surprise we weren't behind and everything had gotten paid. What? Wait? Something on one of the vehicles or around the house must be broke. Nope. So there we were, in a position we hadn't seen in over 6 years. We had some extra money! After agreeing to establish an emergency savings DW asked if we could go on a family vacation since we hadn't been on one since WDW 7 years ago....... hey WDW, do you think we can afford it? So we looked it up. Had to take a little back from the savings but it was within budget. So as I usually do, I asked all the questions looking for a reason not to do it. But, I couldn't find one. The baby (DD3 ) is activly potty training and no longer taking naps. My vacation request was approved from work and I even get a corporate discount making WDW even more affordable. How could I say no. I couldnt, especially since I had secretly been as giddy as a school girl discussing her first crush with her friends, hoping it would work out and it did! AWESOME! OK gotta run, will add more later.
