Perfect is the enemy of the Good Trip Report

Well. Original plan was centered around Disney Institute session and DVC Moonlight Magic. Decision further supported by COVID closedowns so I’m losing DVC points in a couple of months. Then DD is home from college so we could re-visit our mom-daughter trips.

Then – you have been living 2020 so you know – sxxx happens

Disney Institute delayed.
Moonlight Magic cancelled
DD not comfortable with COVID travel

So, rational decision process – cancel the trip because the reasons for the trip are gone.

But, No!!!

I leave tomorrow. I’d lose the DVC points, I have an AP so that is free/paid for (did someone say 30% discount on merch?!), I have airline points that will expire (did I mention I got a comp upgrade to first class?), I have TiW so 20% off any TS and lounge explorations.

And I am just happy to have a week-is away. I will be careful, I will wear masks, Disney seems to be doing well.

I’m staying at Beach Club with DVC points, which never happens as a non-home resort DVC person. I’m doing Epcot and HS those days to be able to walk to the parks. I get to experience Stormalong Bay.

I’m then staying on DVC points at WL/CC which is our new home resort – we bought last year but because of all the (blech) have not used them, so use or Lose and I’m using!

I usually go solo to runDisney, but DD is not on board with travel under current circumstances, no I have No Excuses. Its just me, its just getting away. Its just seeing what there is. I make no promises, I’m not @Randall1028. I will share what I have and what I see. :slight_smile:

I mean, really…is it even worth reading a trip report any longer without achievement badges?

Just kidding. Looking forward to whatever you decide to report!

so far i don’t have much to add to others’ departures day reports. airport is eerily empty, TSA was walk thru, mask compliance mostly good but i’ve moved twice already because i was sitting near people who have them off. I kind of expected better but i’ll just keep wearing mine and move away when i am able

and now i just got a text that the departure gate has changed —- which will be a nice excuse to go for a walk, i guess!
