We are going to Disneyworld in January for 7 days!!!
The kids are excited, but, honestly, I think I'm more excited than the 3 of them combined. I've never been there, always wanted to go, etc. etc. I've been to Disneyland in CA many times, but I have a feeling that Disneyworld is like Disneyland on cack. If it isn't, please don't burst my bubble.
Not only do I get to experience this Magic for myself, I also get to see it through the wondrous eyes of 3 innocent children who believe in everything magical.
We were going to rent a condo from a friend for the week, but ended up getting a cabin onsite thanks to Disney's great offer of "Buy 4 nights, get 3 free." Disney announced this offer just yesterday at 5p EST. Rooms are going fast, so get moving if you are thinking of a Disneyworld trip between January 4th-June 27th, 2009. This offer is blocked out only for two weeks (Easter???) in April (4th-19th).
We're also getting a $200 Disney gift card (available from January 4th-March 29th). I'm guessing we'll be blowing that on Mickey Mouse ears and t-shirts for the kids. I'm (meaning, ME, and me only) am also getting a $75 gift card because we will be there on MY birthday. We already booked two character meals....a princess breakfast our first morning there, and a dinner with Chef Mickey on MY birthday!!! SWEET!
I'm thankful for all the sounds of joy and excitement from my kids as we are planning this trip. They have no idea what they are in for, but they know it's good. Today wasn't a whine-free day, but it was a fight-free day. That's good.
I'll start with my kids stories of thankfulness and hopes this weekend. Have a good one!!!
