Yes, we are about to embark on trip #19 to Walt Disney World as a family. We can talk about what's astonishing or not about that number later. In the meantime, there are goals to be made for the next trip to the middle of the magic.
Goal 1: Meet and greet with Santa! It's the holidays and it wouldn't be complete without an audience with the festive guy in the red suit. I've got 2 different plans to make this happen. We'll see which one plans out. And, you never know when magic will come our way in the form of pixie dust.
Goal 2: Spend some time with another Williams Family who will also be making their way to Walt Disney World. It wouldn't be the first time we've "bumped" into each other at Walt Disney World.
Goal 3: Enjoying our family. One of the things that keeps us returning to Walt Disney World is that it offers an escape from the hustle, bustle, and distraction of the rest of the world. We get to enjoy each other. I can feel it the moment we get in the car--the vacation bubble, and eventually the Disney bubble applies.
Goal 4: Try something new. Our plans already have two new-to-us adventures as a part of our itinerary. Anything else, is just a bonus!
Goal 5: Spend time in or around water. Whether this be a resort pool or a Disney water park, the goal will have been met.
Goal 6: Have fun and make memories! So many of our family's stories come from trips and experiences that I am hopeful we get to add another story to the memoirs.
Goal 7: Catch the nighttime spectaculars at all four parks. Three out of four are certainties. We'll work at making it four out of four.
Goal 8: Have some "lasts." We have tickets for the last LaNouba performance EVER! Flights of Wonder at Disney's Animal Kingdom has their last show on Dec. 31 so seeing if we can fit this in on our Animal Kingdom day.
Goal 9: Stake out prospects for trip #20. Yes, trip #20 is already on the books and by the time we return from trip #19, it will be just a few days until we make Fastpasses.
