Our first ever family trip to Disney is officially booked!!!
Words cannot begin to describe how happy I am about this vacation. When we started finalizing our trip details I started to think back on my first trip there as a child. I remember riding the Dumbo ride over and over again, not minding the long lines. Seeing Mickey and Minnie in real life was almost too much for me, as a 5 year old I felt like I was going to burst from the excitement! As a child and even young adult, I wished I could live at Disney. I wanted nothing more than to work for them, be in a show, or just be a princess!
I have been to Disney World 4 times in my life. My husband and two children however have never been. To see them experience the magic for the first time is going to be amazing. I'm close to bursting just writing this out!
I am planning on a writing a post once a month (or maybe a little more) about our preparations for Disney. My first plan of attack is to make a super cute countdown calendar to keep up in our house. The original idea of having one finished for this post didn't happen because life happened!
Also, since I am a frugal momma, I promise to share my tips and tricks for having all the fun you can at Disney without breaking the bank. I want to help not only my family enjoy all that Disney World has to offer in it's fullness but your family too.
Let the Countdown Begin: 245 Days
We are planning our trip to Disney too! It really is magical. We took our son two years ago and even at only 18 months he so enjoyed it. Looking forward to reading more!
Enjoy every mili-second of it. We went five years ago when my youngest was only 4 years old. Even that young age today she still remembers it vividly! My husband who is from South America and never even came as close to an amusement park was in total awe! It brought me to tears to see his reaction and excitement. That vacation I can truly say to this day was a the best one that we have ever had, we bonded and just had soooo much fun together that even a couple years later as I shared my experience it still brought tears to my eyes! So get ready I promise all the work and planning that you have done is so worth it!
Do you have tips on booking and what frugal decisions you’ve made already? I’m really dying to take the little one and trying to figure out where to begin. With my one income household, I want to do it right, but not neglect the fact that there’s life after Disney 🙂 *or did i miss that post*
Kathy, no you did not miss that post! I’m working on it right now and hope to have it ready by next week…my frugal tips to get to disney!
