Millions of us just watched the Superbowl and its tradition to have a player yell at the camera and say that he’s going to Disney World (This year Ben Roethlisberger and Santonio Holmes got to go).
We here at the DD household have also caught Disney fever. You won’t be seeing us scream into cameras or anything like that. But we are very excited none-the-less. In fact, we just added it to our Wish List.
Yep, well be there sometime in…2016.
Well, we figured there’s no rush.
I’ve been there a couple of times in my life. First with my family and then later with my High School Marching Band. Both trips were a blast! But my wife has never been there, actually she hasn’t been too many places. So I figure it’s time that she gets out & about.
But how cruel would it be to go to Disney World without the kids?
My kids are of course big fans of the movies. We’ve recently checked out The Lion King from the library and now the only game my daughter & I play is called “Lion King” (We act out scenes from the movie with a stuffed Simba).
So we figured we better wait until they get older so they too can enjoy the trip. The way we figure it in 2016 our kids will 11,9, & 6. The six year old is a mythical child who doesn’t even exist, but I’m picking up some subtle hints that they’ll be joining us sooner rather than later. Such as:
“Lets have another kid.”
“When we have 3 kids next year…”
“Lets shoot for a February birthday this time.”
You can make fun of most husbands for not being very observant, but I’m a sharp one.
Now, I can only imagine what it will cost for a family of five to go to anywhere in seven years, much less Disney World. But this timeframe will give us plenty of time to save up and study up for the best deals.
If any of you out there are planning a trip sooner than me, be sure to check out Mousesavers. It looks like it’s full of great ways to save money on a Disney Trip.
I hope to be able to take lots of family vacations. We’ll start out with smaller ones like trips to the Black Hills and Wisconsin Dells. Then after the Disney Trip we’ll mix in Wash DC, NYC & Hawaii. When the kids are gone, the Mrs & I would like to travel outside the country (Europe & Asia).
Hey if you’re gonna dream, dream big right?
So trusty readers, do you have any travel plans that you’re saving up for? They can be short term or long term? It’ll be fun to see where everybody is going.
Until next time,
