"Are You Getting Excited?"

“Are you getting excited?” our travel agent asked when I phoned her yesterday to update our credit card information—it had expired—as she will be making our ADR’s on Monday and would need the updated information for the credit card hold on our reservations.  She was glad I had called to take care of that little detail as she would have hit a stumbling block on Monday and would have needed to contact me to get the information.

Anyway, we had a good chat and she posed the question stated earlier.  My response, “Yeah, we are excited, but our trip is still about six months away.”  It was a less than enthusiastic response and it made me consider our level of excitement.

When I stopped to think I realized that I am more excited than my response sounded.  We already have two new sets of shirts for our upcoming trip and ADR’s planned and will be made shortly.  While the actual packing hasn’t physically begun, it has mentally.  A shirt for the boy hanging on the hook of the bedroom door is an indication of things to come.

The husband is already counting down to sleeping on the sea.  He loves being rocked to sleep by the ocean and said he can’t wait to walk by a massive Christmas tree every day and see and smell a big Gingerbread house.  He was also talking about being in the ocean at Castaway Cay.  He may be more excited than I had originally thought.

I then told him that we could take some time while at Walt Disney World and view the holiday decorations at various resorts.  He was game!

The boy has already planned his time in the kids’ club.  He got new swim goggles and we talked about how they could go with us on our trip and be used at Castaway Cay. 

“Are you getting excited?”

They key word in the question is “getting” and the answer is “yes” and a little bit more every day!


  1. 6 days until our stay at the World. 11 more until we sail the Dream in 5022 (can't wait to see if the pos-it is there). Excited does not describe what we're feeling...overjoyed maybe a better word! And this post didn't help any. :-)

  2. Have a magical trip! Savor the anticipation. . . it is a spectacular feeling! And, please, keep us posted about the post-it note.
