We had originally planned a 2nd family trip to WDW last April. Well, you all know what happened. I had also planned a backup trip in May just in case the April trip didn’t work out due to personal things going on. Both were canceled obviously.
Early in the pandemic, I was confident we could go in the fall, so planned Sep, Oct, and Nov trips. I also planned solo trips in Nov to run the Wine & Dine races with St Jude (like I did in 2019; Family trip report here) and in Jan 2021 to run the Dopey (like I did in 2020; solo trip report here). As the pandemic raged on into the fall of 2020, I canceled the September trip, then October, then November. I turned the Dopey trip into a full family trip. And I made backup plans for February and March. All of those were canceled.
So, since the pandemic began, I have canceled 10 trips. And I’m a super planner - I had full touring plans, resort bookings, ADRs, etc. for these trips. My credit card statements look insane. I’ve booked and canceled 100s of ADRs.
But today we are flying out on SW flight #3847 and will finally be home again this afternoon!
I do not plan on updating this thread in any live fashion, but may sprinkle some photos in every now and then. I am going to try and stay off my phone as much as possible, except when needing help with touring. Once we return, I will provide a day-by-day report as I have time.
Thanks to all of you who have provided support and helped out over the last year. This is a great community and so glad that I found it.
