We Never Really Left!

The husband said that we never really left. . . the most magical place on earth that is.  This was his response to my whining/complaining about it being eleven months until our next Disney vacation.  He then said that we are already there or still there in our hearts.  Oh, he is so right!  And, he knew just what to say to make me feel better.  I also know that the eleven months will fly by AND I get to plan!

Well, actually the planning has already begun.  One of our planned stops while we are in Orlando is a day at Universal/Islands of Adventure.  The guys have been watching YouTube videos and making decisions about what rides we HAVE to ride an which ones are nice to ride, checking prospective wait times, and even restaurants/dining locations.  They both know this part of our trip is all theirs to plan.

Since our summer 2014 plans include a seven night sailing on the Disney Fantasy, which will include a Formal Night, I was able to snag a formal gown/dress on clearance this week-end, as summer dresses are on sale right now.  I bought it online for additional savings AND cash back using Ebates—click here to get started with Ebates.  Purchasing now, especially when a good price can be had, eliminates the budget being hit all at once for purchases; I find it easier on the budget to spread out the purchases. . . one or two a month. 

The next thing on the “to do” list is to order PassPorter’s new guide for Disney Cruise Line, released earlier this month.  The guide contains information on the ports and various port adventures/shore excursions.  The guide book also has info about the ship, though after two sailings on the Disney Dream, I am sure the Fantasy will feel like home.  Since I am a part of the PassPorter on-line community, I will get to save 30% off the price of the guide.  The family knows that once it arrives, I will have read it cover to cover in one night. 

The husband is right.  We never really left our happy place!


  1. Man... You guys are lucky enough to go as often as you do! We are going next May and it will have been two years since the last trip. Usually we go every 3-5!

    1. Carolyn,
      You are right, we are very fortunate so I need to stop whining. Thanks for the reminder.
      Have a magical trip in May!
