M I C K E Y Mouse Here we come!!!!


Well it is official, we get to take the kids to DISNEY WORLD this year! We are SOOOO excited, and the kids are pretty happy to! ;0) The best part? We are not paying for it(or much anyways). Mark won a big award from work a few months back that could be used to book travel. (yeah Mark!) We will celebrate our 15th anniversary this year, so a cruise for TWO was tempting! But we felt a bit to guilty about that since we have been to China twice in the last few years. It is time to go back to Disney. Last time we went was right after starting our adoption for Sage. Malaine was free at that time, so does not remember much. We were going to wait and go for the little girls 4th birthday(November) till Disney announced FREE dining in the fall. We are going in September while that is going on and will hit Makennas birthday. Meaning she gets a free ticket, or since we have a package and do not need that, we get a free Disney gift card to use in the park that equals the cost of a one day ticket. We are going to be staying at the All Star Music Resort in a family suite, which looks like fun. My parents are going along with us which is a life saver with 5 kids of various ages who will want to go in different directions. Sage is the most excited to meet the princess's and is planning to eat with them and BE a princess. I am not sure Disney will know what hit them once we enter the gates!

Great news! WDW is so much fun! We just returned about two weeks ago. The girls loved loved it. It was my little one's first time and she was ALL about Minnie and the princesses. All she tell us each and every day is "We need to go bacl to the hotel now" (which is code for Disney as we stayed at Wilderness Lodge). Look forward to seeing you rpics and hearing stories.

You're going to have so much fun!! We went a few years ago and got the dining plan...they really feed you on that thing!! And to get it for free, that's amazing! It made us want to consider going again just for that!

I'm sure you'll have a great time!! I know Oakley would LOVE to go to Disney, but I just can't get past the cost. And I can't imagine being in Florida and not going to the beach. And I REALLY can't imagine every being able to afford to do both:). Congrats on the win and have a BLAST!!

How fun! It has been a very long time, about 4 years since we have been to Disney World. Maybe next year when AVa is three and can enjoy it more.
Way to go Mark for getting that award!! That is a great time of year to go with school back in session. My brother has worked there for years, you will have a wonderful time!!
