May be its because my first trip to WDW was when I was on my senior class trip, or may be its because I honeymooned there, or may be its because I took my daughter for her first WDW trip when she was only 5 months old, or may be its just because I love WDW so much. Who knows. But finally, much to my surprise after 43 years years, my parents have now decided to go to WDW with us too! I called Disney over the weekend and added them to our room, along with the tickets and dining plan, and purchased their airline tickets too. It will be 4 adults and one teenager in the room, but thats ok. I have two sisters and their families are going too. My parents are both in their 70’s and I’m very lucky that they are both in good health and shape. So I just wanted to share the excitement on this rainy/gloomy day in NJ :sad:, but we need the rain too
Sounds like a party! I am sure it is going to be a blast!! Ooo, and you are at 50 days, it’s getting there!
That’s awesome! You are going to have a blast showing them around.
That’s wonderful! I hope you all have a fantastic time!
So glad to hear of the recent addition to your trip! I know you guys will have a wonderful time. Enjoy the experience, the memories will last a life time. I can still remember details of trips from as far back as when I was 5 years old! (and that was 20 years ago) :biggrin: :mickey: :biggrin:
Aww that’s great. I hope it’s a magical trip for all.
Sounds awesome! Can’t wait to hear all about it—you’re gonna have a great time!
That’s great news PhilliesFan! Certainly it brightens this wonderful New England monsoon we’re experiencing! And you are staying at the Polynesian right?
Have a Lapu-Lapu gor me when you get there! (Oh, and while you’re at it, have one for Peppertink too!)
And…y’know…some for yourself!
Yay!! I’m so happy for you! It took years for my sister and I to talk our parents into going to WDW. Of course they loved it and your parents will too! Congrats and have a great time!
Hee hee…thanks AM for remembering me with the Lapu Lapu thing:)
I think that is great! You will have memories to last a lifetime. Is this your parents first trip ever, or it is just their first trip with you? Whichever, have a blast!!!
I think that’s wonderful! Hope you all have a magical time! :mickey:
And the best part is they don’t have to push you all around WDW in a stroller!
That’s awesome news! I took my parents 3 years ago. My mom loved it and my step-dad hated it!
Yes! YOu should make them push you ANYWAY!
That’s great! I am trying to talk my sister and her husband in to going with us sometime.
So true. I told my parents that they should pay, since they never took us as kids! My father will be 78 soon and he is like a big kid. He’ll go on all the rides and spend a lot of time in the pool. My mother is actually very excited too. They’ve travelled to Europe, Hawaii, etc, but for some reason they never went to Disney. I know they’ll have a great time. I just hope that I can sleep through my husband and father’s snoring! :eek:
