We’ve all seen the lists of how to measure time and find the meaning of certain lengths of time. Well, how do I measure time? Disney trips!
When people ask us how often we go to Disney, I just sort of shrug and say as often as we can. Typically, someone else nearby shouts out an estimate of at least once a year, which is. . . somewhat accurate.
Let’s take 2012, last year, for example. We hit Walt Disney World in March and then sailed on a Disney ship and went to Walt Disney World again in December. After all, we were already “in town” so to speak, so why not!
But when we get to 2013, the answer would be one time; in July of 2013. Yes, it was a lengthy trip, some twelve days inside the Disney bubble. But worth every moment!
And, since 2013 is quickly dwindling away, that brings us to 2014. The plan as of right now is one trip in 2014 that includes a Disney cruise and a stay at Walt Disney World. Actually, we fly nine months from now.
When I told the husband that our trip was nine months away, he cracked a joke about birthing our Disney vacation baby and to take good care of it while in uterus, so to speak. But isn’t that we do with our Disney plans anyway? Take good care of them?
I have been teaching coupon classes for almost a year with a friend, and we have taken two Disney trips during that time and the next one is planned. From my friend’s perspective, we go quite often.
So, there you have it. . . 3 years, and 4 trips. That’s not quite once a year. The countdown, though, for the next trip, has definitely begun!
