Subconscious Guilt

So I had another Disney dream last night, right before I woke up (so I guess I had the dream this morning). It was a sweet dream, but now I feel guilty.

Instead of being at WDW with Erin, I was with Haille Rae... she was about the age she is now, and she was having the time of her life. We were headed to CSR (by disney ferry, though, which is impossible. go figure) and she was just so happy to be at Disney.

Enter the guilt. We're not taking her to disneyLAND until she turns five in Feb. of 2011... it's going to be a big family birthday trip. She's super excited about it.

Erin and my trip happens before her birthday. I just hope she isn't miffed/confused/hurt that we're going without her (again) as our last trip is teh reason she got promised her bday trip in the first place!

Not the best feeling to wake up with, that's for sure. I really wish I could take Haille to WDW, but it's just not feesible. She will have a grand time at Disneyland, I have no doubt, and her mom and grandma will be there so in that way it's not like she's truly missing out. But I really enjoyed that dream...

...until the guilt set in. *sigh*


Yes, We're Going to Disney Again...

After a lot of back and forth, Erin decided about a month ago that Disney would be more fun than Canada. As much as we were both excited for it, she was being pulled towards the world's largest People Trap. So, three days of Toni being stuck in bed with a back/neck issue calculating expenses later: we find that it'd probably run a thousand dollars cheaper than the canadian road trip. Canada is expensive!

But we had a dilema! One of the main reasons we were doing the Canadian trip was for the road trip aspect of it! So, we thought, why not just drive down to Disney World! It shouldn't take THAT long, right? And if you think about it, gas is a heck of a lot cheaper for a car than two seats on an airplane. So I'll be flying down to Montana and we'll take off from there.

Basically, we're doing the same weeks/amount of time that Canada was going to be. Which, after figuring travel time to and from Florida, gives us twelve FULL days in the parks. We're going to stay (at this point in our planning anyway) at teh Coronado Springs Resort this time - for the FULL time - and with the average heat being what it is in August we will definitely be spending quite a bit of time there at the pool/in the rooms. Which I don't have a problem with. Naps are great.

So, yes, this will make three Disney trips in three years back to back to back. Disney 2009, Disney 2010, and then Disney[land] 2011. I am not worried of Disney burnout, but we are talking of changing it up for 2012! we have to, addiction is not good... right? ha ha!

So on that note I will close out this entry. Three entries in the span of 24 hours... I'm not excited at all, am I? ha ha!

Hope you like our layout... it was a pain to put together, but we got it up!


Well I am testing this out but WE ARE ROADTRIPPING TO DISNEY!!!!!!

Disney Dreamin'

Had my first travel nightmare last night, it's actually why I'm up so stupidly early here in my room. Blah.

It basically started out with Erin and I driving up to the Coronado Springs Resort (so I assume this was, in fact, a dream about our road trip next summer) and unloading. For whatever reason I let Erin take my luggage and her luggage and she went and checked in while I guess I had a valet take her car away ?? Who knows why my brain had it that way. As I'm standing on the curb (why didn't I go in?) I noticed others also arriving and wheeling to their rooms and what not. My brain identified one as DisneyDiana from Passporters (whom I've never met lol) but she really looked like one of my coworkers! Go figure!

Anyway while I'm waiting for Erin to return with our room assignment I realize - I don't have my purse or my camera or laptop... they're back in ALASKA! All I have is a suitcase with clothes. Now, if we were really on the road trip I KNOW I would have figured that out well BEFORE we got to Disney (if I didn't have my purse I wouldn't have gotten on the plane because I wouldn't have an ID! lol), but apparently my brain wasn't thinking clearly [bad pun!].

So I start freaking out and then Erin comes back and says we'll just call my parents and they'll have to FedEx my stuff down. Um, okay, I don't live with my parents how the heck are they going to get my stuff and ship it down? Shouldn't Judy and Gaylord do that?? Then off we went to our room. We were in the Cabanas again, just a different "Cabana" lol... everything was pretty much the way I remembered it (I would hope so)... and then I woke up because I was still freaking that I didn't have my stuff.

*facepalm* is it August yet?


Testing this thing out

This is our new home. Not just Disney travel specific, we can use this blog over and over and over. Hopefully erin and I figure this one out pretty quickly and easily. Erin is worried she'll have problems but I have no doubt she'll be on here in no time.

Can't wait to start blogging about upcoming trips!
