On the chance that I may be verbally accosted - I have now officially lost my love for WDW. I have been a hardcore WDW for years - and have always gone into planning a trip with my eyes wide open. I plan, re-plan, etc for months - and I have always loved “the hunt”.
However this time around it has continued to be hit by disappointment. Now I am not one of those that believes that unless this or that happens my vacation is ruined. I feel very blessed that I have a happy family and a few extra bucks that allows me to indulge myself and my family for a few days.
That being said - I just tried to book BBB for about 170 days out and the available times are almost non-existant. Now - is this going to wreck our vacation - NO. Will my little princess survive - YES. Was it something that I wanted to do to just add a “little extra” - sure. This was also to make up for the fact that so many rides will be closed - we won’t go to Studios (or whatever it is called now) as there isn’t anything to do there. I guess I have never planned so much and hit so many walls that - we now are basically doing WDW out of default. I am looking forward to enjoying the pools and other things more than the parks itself. Looking forward to Universal and Seaworld much more than WDW. I guess it is just sad that something that I had loved so much is now something that I am at best, indifferent. Still going, still going to have a great time I am sure- but this will be it for a very long time.
