It's official! (well, kinda)

I texted my cousin, whom I haven’t talked to since May, last night. We’ve never done a Disney trip together (unless you count my wedding) and we haven’t been planning one together, so this was funny:

I mean, it’s not REALLY official until it’s booked, but we are both pretty stoked about it. I then texted my sister and she said she’s in. So it’ll be me, my then DS4, cousin, her DD4, and my sister. The three of us always took family vacations with each other when we were kids and then when I was in my twenties and they were teens we did a few road trips, so it will be like old times, but in the happiest place on earth!

I’ve already been obsessing SO much for a couple of weeks…to the level of looking up where in the resorts we might stay you can refill the mugs if we were to get the dining plan.

No dining plan this year. I liked when they did free dining (party of 5, it definitely pays off). Not sure if it will be back anytime soon.

We are planning on November 2021. I’ve only done the dining plan once, and vowed that I wouldn’t again! We did come out ahead because I made damn sure of it, but I ended making my ordering decisions on value over what I really wanted, and we would never all get dessert in any other circumstance…plus it made the tips cost more too. Buuuut if we do a split stay and only use for part of it, I would definitely consider it, given that it is reinstated by then.

Hopefully its back by then! I would hope Disney is back to normal but I also bet they are taking this opportunity to make quite a few changes on what Disney will be like on the other side of this, what stays, what goes, what gets modified and then what gets added. It will be interesting.

Yes. Definitely hoping things are back to normal, and knowing some things may never be the way they were. For instance… my cousin really wants to go in that little window when both Halloween and Christmas decorations are up. I know this year they are really scaling back decor, but even if I determine what week that usually is, who knows what they will do henceforth.

It does cost Disney less to swap out decor vs taking down, waiting, then putting back up. I think first week of Nov is safe to say this change will happen. Halloween doesnt make much sense after Halloween. Ive also wanted to go around this time! Start your trip in “fall” and end in “winter” :grin:
