When I return from WDW, people always ask me, "when are you going back?" Before I answer that, I want to take a second to give a shout out to the Disney Community on Twitter (which @Drantis82 really opened my eyes to). You all made my Disney Vacation so much fun! The whole time I was at WDW I tried to take pictures and tweet them or randomly tweet things going on in the Parks because I knew it was the little bit of magic I could share with all of you. It was even more fun when you all responded to me and retweeted me at times! When some of you go to WDW I look forward to the tweets and the twitpics you provide because for that one second when I read your tweet or see your photo, I’m there with you. I hope that magic happened for all of you while I tweeted. You are part of the reason I’m writing this trip report because I like sharing the pixie dust!
That out of the way…I love going to Walt Disney World with my family. This makes the third trip I have made with them, and I would go again if they’d have me. However, next trip I have some different plans.
While on the trip I realized I’ve been spending part of my life waiting. I’ve been waiting for Prince Charming to come sweep me off my feet and take me to a Deluxe Disney World Resort on our honeymoon. Honestly, that may not happen, and waiting is foolish. I mean I've built up a lovely home around me with nice furniture, decorations, my own china dishes, and such all based on the principle that I don't have to wait for a wedding to have nice things. Why is WDW any different?? I’ve decided I have a couple of options for my next trip:
1. We have family friends that live very close to WDW. They’ve said I can come stay with them for free, borrow a car for free, come and go as I want, and go to WDW from there. That would save me a TON of money, so if I have a WDW itch that I really need to scratch, I’ll go back in that style next time. I love our friends down there and would enjoy staying with them, and best of all I know they really would love to have me.
2. My long term idea is to save enough to go back and stay at The Contemporary for 4-5 nights. Who needs Prince Charming when you can go solo?
Next time I want to sleep in (except the day I go to Magic Kingdom for Rope Drop), enjoy a few morning attractions and lunch, head “home” to rest during the hottest part of the day, and then go back to the Parks and stay late each night. That way I could go during summer and still enjoy my time there. I love the Parks at night, and I’d like to not be so tired by the end of the day that I can’t enjoy that time.
So there you have it. I have a plan. I’m not sure how long it will take me to save for The Contemporary, but one day I’ll stay there. It’s my style. I love that the monorail goes right through it, and the close proximity to Magic Kingdom is a definite plus. (I am willing to bring someone with me on my trip if a friend wants to join me or Prince Charming does come along.)
I do want to go to Disneyland sometime. I think it would be neat to see where it all began, but of course that's a completely different undertaking...
