ok, let’s set this up…
Who went this time:
Me- The planner in the family who is always at the mercy of my Dh’s job when planning vacations
Dh- He likes Disney, but I think he does not enjoy it nearly as much as I do.
DD-12, who thinks she is growing up
DS-10, who was so excited to go
DS-15 months, who had no idea where he was, but he still had so much fun
We went in March with the grandparents- is there really any need to go again? Well, no not really, unless you wait until the last minute to plan any sort of summer vacation. Due to DH’s job… we could not plan anything ahead of time. Something was always coming up. Well, school starts soon, and we were down to the wire on the trip planning. There was no way we could get a place at the beach with a weeks notice, so where do we go? Well, I can plan a trip in 1 hour flat- with reservations, opinions, etc… so after much bouncing around where to go- we decided to do Disney again.
This time, DH did not want to do the dining plan, but I still though that a sit down meal every day was important, so I still wanted to do it. He was fine with that. SO we bought our tickets with no dining plan and no hopping, which I was worried would be a mistake.
We booked POFQ- with 10 day notice and I made dining reservations. About 4 hours later, I checked in online… How bout that for planning…
We had some interesting things happen… Here’s the lowdown…
We had a lot to do before we left, which means I have to do it, because hubby has no time to help with anything except on the weekend…
I packed as early as I could- which meant the night before I was up until 2 doing laundry… Got up Friday morning, and I fed everyone, cleaned up the house, packed the car, got the kids ready to go, and drove 30 minutes into the city to pic hubby up from work. Now, I had to meet hubby’s time window because he was going to get on a phone call at 12:30. I had to pick him up before that so that he could do his phone call from the car, or wait until 2 or later to get him. Needless to say, I was rushing around like a maniac… Oh well, it will be worth it!
