So sorry you had to make such a hard trip, but it was worth it.
I remember when we were stationed at Shaw, SC a hurricane came in late in 99. We were far enough inland to be given an “optional” evac. DD was born several months before so we thought “what a good reason to visit family” since we wouldn’t be charged leave. Stayed up and drove all night 14+ hours from SC to LA only to get a recall 2 hours after arriving. DH had to turn around and drive 13+ hours back for weather clean-up detail only to be sent back home 3 1/2 hours later. Not enough work to do.:mad: (His shirt was a jerk & did that on purpose)
The 5 years we were there DH was scheduled 10 tdy’s, 4 of those were overseas (in 5 years):ohmy:. Fortunately only 3 times in the 6 years here. Difference of Fighters vs Bombers. He knew what his purpose was when joining, same as I when we married. As for the kids not having that choice, we realized if the military wanted you to have a family they would’ve issued you one in Basic. So…we do what we have to, and unless DH can make Chief we’ll be civies in a year.
On subject, that time of year we enjoy morning EMH more than evening. Not sure if it’s because they seem to offer more mornings than eve, or maybe because it gets brrrrrr when the sun drops,lol.
But, if you want to see that special show that MK does out front about 30 min before opening I don’t think they do that on their EMH.
Unless you have a fav restaurant at Epcot, don’t book and just use your snack credits to eat around the world at F & W fest. Best way to get the best tastes of all the worlds.
We made a trip without telling the girls one year. They realized where we were going when they woke up right as we came to the WDW gate. Such a nice trip since never once did we here “are we there yet?” or “how much futher?”:laugh:
We extended our trip by 1 day so we could wake up on our anni b4 going home. Make sure to tell AS what you’re celebrateing and you may come back to your room with a special surprise. I still have my autographed pic of Mic & Min in wedding attire:biggrin:
