Got back from my big family WDW trip a couple of weeks ago, and have been going through trip-planning withdrawal. I know this will not be unusual since I have read that others go through the same thing…the question of what to do with all that extra time you now have on your hands?? So, of course, I started thinking about another trip! I am not ready to go back to WDW yet…okay, emotionally, yes I am, but I want to wait til the kids are older (see my trip report for details on that), and probably not financially ready for the type of trip I want to take (would love deluxe Epcot area lodgings next time around).
That brings me to my actual question for folks here…how far in advance do you start planning a non-WDW vacation? I think we’re going to go to PA next July. Much closer, so we can drive, so I don’t need to worry about planning a flight. Is it too early to start booking a hotel or planning what we’re doing each day? I’m not much of a vacationer (obviously!) so the whole process is still kind of new to me. My MIL planned a lot of the WDW vaca, too. Besides this recent trip, the last big trip I took was my honeymoon 6.5 years ago.
Oh and if anyone has tidbits of info on PA (we are looking at Lancaster county…Amish country, Hershey, Dutch Wonderland), please share And I hope this is okay to be in this section…I didn’t know if many people would see it in the Cava threads. Thanks all!
