May the Force Be With Us: A Family Trip Report Summer 2021

The time has finally come for the trip we’ve been planning since 2019 to finally occur. A common story: we originally had a DCL / WDW trip scheduled for May 2020. But then we decided to save our money and push it back a year … JK you know what really happened.

The good part about waiting till 2021 for this vacation is that it is longer and more extravagant than I ever would have planned before this point.

What: Two weeks in Orlando at WDW / UOR
When: Sunday, May 23rd - Saturday, June 5th
Who: Me (DH), DW, DS9, DD7, DD4, and DD2
Who else: DW’s sister (DSIL) and brother (DBIL will be accompanying us to help take care of the kids

Yes!!! :crossed_fingers:t3::crossed_fingers:t3::crossed_fingers:t3:

Btw, does anyone else clean their house top to bottom before going on a trip? My house is never cleaner than when I’m away. Wouldn’t want a burglar calling on my home with unmopped floors.

Yesssss. And you know it’s not because of the burglars! It’s because you know that there is nothing better than coming home to a spotless and organized home after being away. Especially since your luggage is going to turn it back into a disaster zone immediately upon stepping through the door.
