Regular readers will know that I have three trips booked for 2021: DLP in April, DLP in July, WDW in August.
The April trip has felt doomed to me since mid December. The July trip seemed like terrible timing. The WDW trip seems like good timing and I’m very excited about it still.
So I have made a Big Decision.
I’m cancelling both DLP trips. And using the money saved to add two friends of mine to the August trip.
My two friends are, er, from the Wrong Side of the Tracks. One of them has never been on an airplane. The other has, but only for a flight lasting a couple of hours. WDW is something neither of them could even dream of.
I really want to give them this opportunity. Not just because — let’s not deny it — I’m a terrific person, but for the pleasure it will give me. I want to see WDW through their eyes. I want to see their jaws drop over and over again as we discover WDW — and UOR — as mine did during my first trip.
The plan is seven nights: five at WDW, two at UOR. Four full days at WDW, two full days at UOR.
Although this means I’m going to have wait a long time before I get my next Disney fix, I’m so much more excited about this plan than my original plan.
I can’t wait to help my friends plan out what they want to do at the two resorts and get them as frantically excited as I am.
