Planning for Disney!

Disney World is perhaps one of the most exciting places in the world. Whenever I think of that place I always get a happy feeling; very bubbly and excited inside.

When my husband and I were planning our honeymoon, we decided that Orlando was the place to go. We went to Disney and Universal Studios and had a ball. We stayed in a resort, ran through the parks, ate our hearts out, drove go-karts, and got caught in a few T-storms!

We went back to Orlando again for our 1st anniversary but this time we went to Sea World. My husband always talked about going and this time we went. We enjoyed ourselves and didn't want to leave.

This time around we have a 2 year old daughter. We always talked about taking her to Disney around 4 or 5. We had some requirements first, like sleeping through the night, must be able to walk most of the time, be fully potty trained, and a good eater.

We have ordered the Disney planning DVD and have scheduled to go September 2010, Lord's will. It about 19 months away but the planning starts now. I have come to realize that people who plan to go to Disney, plan years in advance. They save they're money, and go there and have a ball. And that's just what I plan to do. First I will pray and ask the Lord's if it's ok. Then open an ING savings account just for our Disney Fund. We have looked up resorts on Disney property, tickets, airfare, dining,misc, taxes and spending money and figure we will need $4000.00. Boy that's alot of money, but this shouldn't be a problem if we're saving for 19 months. That's the beauty of it; if we deny ourselves other wants, we can plan to go to Disney and REALLY enjoy ourselves because we waited 19 months and saved up our money.

Disney also has a birthday promotion going on. Come to Disney on your birthday and you'll get in the parks for FREE!! If you have already bought your tickets in advance, they'll give you a free $50 gift card on the spot to use in they're parks!!!
Since me and my daughter birthday are 4 days within each other, we'll have an extra $100 from Disney!

We could use all the advice/help/suggestions that you all might have in regards to traveling to Disney or in general. Thanks!
