Last October we did our “one time” Disney trip. We rented a 2-bedroom at Boulder Ridge, did EMM at TSL, had some character meals, spent way too much on souvenirs, rode all the rides, and had the best time ever. We did not do everything we had planned/hoped, but it was still a good trip (other than going to F&W on a Saturday like a dummy). It was SO fun that I found myself wanting to plan another trip and just being generally bummed about not having any sort of excuse to go back.
My 40th birthday is in May and it happens to be the same week I graduate with my Master’s degree. When I went to book my hotel/flights to my graduation ceremony, I accidentally saw that Disney was running room discounts during the same time…and I accidentally booked a Storybook Dining reservation on my actual birthday night…and I accidentally found some decent flights to Orlando…and after a little hesitation I totally booked a room.
Has anyone else somewhat spontaneously planned a trip less than 100 days out? Am I nuts for pulling the kids out of school TWICE in one school year to go to Disney World? Am I really skipping my graduation because I’d rather wake up 40 years old in the place that makes me feel like a kid?
