Going to Disney

Kim and I are packing up the kids and heading for Disney World tomorrow. I've always been a stick in the mud about Disney; so this is the first time we've been. Kids are 11, 8 and 4. They're pretty excited. Kim loves Disney. I just hope Mr. Dribbles behaves himself.

I have to thank Brooks for helping me see how awesome a Disney trip can be for the family. You really planted the seed in my head. I'm really looking forward to watching the kids. And thanks to RickMurtagh for helping me figure out how to pay for this trip. I'll figure out how to fund my retirement some other decade. Also thanks to Rick for reminding me that certain adult magic can happen at Disney.

Take care everyone. Stay strong and focussed.

Roger

    Disney
    For my Mom's 75th birthday (9 years ago) I asked her what she wanted. She wanted to go to Disneyland, with her baby's (her youngest son, my brother, whom had passed away) child.
    So away we went, my niece, her son, my son, my hubby and my mother!!!!
    My first and only time to Disneyland. It was worth every joy in my Mom's heart that we went.
    I HOPE you enjoy every moment (even when she kept running over me with the electric cart)that we did!!!

    You and Kim and the kids have a really great time. Go with the mind of a child and enjoy it that way. Your kids are at a great age for this trip and everyone will remember it always, "The first time we went to Disney". Have FUN!

    Have a great time!
    I've been to Disneyland and Disney World many times! You'll have a great time, just remember to pace yourself! This time of year it won't be quite so crowded either! Hope there's lots of magic to go around for all of you! ;)

    Disney World
    My family and I have been to Disney World 15 times over the years with our kids; sisters; our parents and our grand kids. We mostly fly but the most fun we had was taking down a motor home and staying at the Disney Camp Grounds. We have stayed at most of the Disney Motels. Our last trip was March 2010. I would avoid Sea World. It is run down and the killer whale show is just a big screen with the whales swimming around in the pool. I think I paid four hundred dollars for the four of us. Money is better spent on Disney or Universal. Yes bring your wallet Mickey doesn't work cheap! Have fun Lou

    Roger and Kim:
    Enjoy your trip and the memories it will make. Only been there once and even 20 plus years later can still remember our daughter Christy's excitement and the happiness in her eyes seeing all the wonderful things at Disney.

    Enjoy and post some pics when you get back.

    Take care - Tina

    I am late in reading this - you are already on your way to the "Happiest Place on Earth."

    I am so excited for you. Enjoy this trip! You deserve it.

    The Happiest Place on Earth:)
    Roger

    You'll probably have more fun than anyone there - if you're not having a good time, check your pulse - you just might be dead, LOL:)

    Adult magic sounds like a good idea going in - you'll both probably be too exhausted for fireworks, unless you watch them from your balcony:)

    I think if I had one more vacation in me, I'd like to go here again. Kim and I went on our honeymoon nearly 20 years ago and had the time of our lives!

    Just remember to have plenty of $20's on hand and excercise - just the excercise that moves your hand to your wallet and back again, LOL:)

    Enjoy yourself and tell me all the new things that are there now - I can only imagine how much the place has changed in two decades.
