Looking like my DVC waitlist isn’t going to come through for this December (waitlist timeline expires tomorrow), so I did what anyintelligent and sane person does… I booked a solo trip for the same time at Port Orleans Riverside with a royal room.
Cause I’m sane. And intelligent. And if you believe any of that, I have some oceanfront property to sell you in Kansas. Great deal! Just let me know if interested!
Ok, there actually is some logic to this:
Mom’s doing exceedingly well (woo hoo!) and is going to be staying with family members for the next several months. So since there’s no chemo or immediate danger, I can take a moment and actually breathe.
Because of that, I feel I need a legit vacation for myself. This past year has been nuts and while the trips to Disney with her were fun…they were extremely hectic and stressful for obvious reasons.
I’ve always wanted to see Disney at Christmas and I know no one in my family (mom included) is going to enjoy it as much as me, so taking it all in alone at first is going to be the best thing I can do.
It’s fairly cheap. With it being Port Orleans, miles, annual pass (though it didn’t apply to the room), and other discounts, I’m able to get in and out without too much of a hit to the budget. Obviously, food and merch will can break that, but if I’m sensible (stop laughing), I can get a trip in on the cheap (seriously, stop…wait, did you just snort?)
Now, to avoid ire from friends and family for a third trip in a year (even though I shouldn’t care), and worse a solo trip, I’ve lied and said that I am being sent away on business for that time.
Only thing left to do is set up MDE and figure out which day I want to do the Christmas Party. I have conflicting feelings on the room choice, though. I love theming, buuuut I’m worried it might a bit too “princess-y” for me? I’ve looked at the room finder and all that, it doesn’t look like a unicorn exploded in there or anything so I think I should be good, what are your thoughts?
Also, any recommendations for a room I should request? I have a river view, btw.
