To the bolded—that’s our attitude. We will get thorough use of our points and the resorts, but there is a limit to our spending. When APs hit a certain price, we switched to every other year and just skip the parks sometimes. If APs don’t return, we will pare down park time further. No way I’m buying five to ten day passes for every trip. Might be a two day every so often purchase instead. Dining right now seems crazy. I’ll cook. I don’t have bottomless pockets.Looks like selling has worked out for you!
There are lots of things that I miss and wish were still the same. Some small things like the cookie ice cream sandwich from Main Street Bakery. Even if Starbucks had it, or any other shop for that matter, it wouldn't be the same because my memory is tied to MSB and coming out and finding a bench right next to it on Main Street - imagine that - to eat them with the kids before the melting.
And, I used to go to Comedy Warehouse and loved all the performers there. Occasionally I will see 1 or 2 in costume in MK or HS. Miss that experience a lot.
Also would go to the other club, the one you seem to favor - Kungaloosh - my old mind won't give me the name right now, but it was a lot of fun!
I rebel against having to plan dining and rides and now actual days in the parks. Yes, I would book restaurants but it had gotten to be a job instead of a pleasure, so I just quit. Substituted going to the bar at 'Ohana and ordering bread pudding, lol, or staying at Poly and having the Twilight feast delivered to our room.
I've continued to do walkups at restaurants and been semi successful as a single. Well not since Feb 2020. We'll see how that goes this winter coming up. With family, I have to book something.
And, I get to see Disney through new eyes. Back in Feb 2020, I was able to school my 14 year old grand nephew on how to do the new attraction at HS. He had no knowledge of it, not being a regular Disney visitor. When they arrived and went to the park they got an early boarding group and were in awe of this ride and had a wonderful time in HS.
Plus my little grand children are coming up and will love what is offered now.
I like to reminisce, but not to live in the past or make regrets dominate what time I have left. My DVC still has a bit over 20 years and I'm 68. I intend to enjoy the new and remember the past. But, I'll still be watchful of what the mouse gets out of my pocket.
Take care and enjoy!
