I used to laugh at those families that went to Disney World over and over. Was there nothing else to spend their vacation money on? That was until we took the girl for the first time in October 2011. The joy in the faces of my girls the first time they walked down Main street, the wonder as the music for the parade started, “Celebrate a dream come true“, we all sang it for weeks after getting home. I remember Megan being so excited when the parade started to go by I had to hold back a tear, a mothers dream is to see a child that excited.
We returned in February 2013. That time was a celebration after my bilateral prophylactic mastectomy and reconstruction. After receiving the pathology report and realizing that it was not “if” I would have gotten breast cancer but instead “when” we knew we had to celebrate! We went all out staying at the Kidani villas overlooking the safari and enjoying 7 jam-packed days. Once again we had a fantastic time! I really started to understand why people continue to come back, the fun had by the entire family was second to none! We could not wait to plan the next trip, we had become one of those families.
This weekend we head back. For the first time we will be driving and no villas. The kids are so excited because they will be sleeping in bunk beds. I am not sure who is more excited, the girls or Frank and I. My husband is just a big kid at heart and I have always had a loving fondness for all things Disney. I also fill with joy watching the girls have such a great time. The countdown has been going on for over a month with the excitement level increasing with each passing day…4 more days until Disney!
I have not posted in a while for several reasons..I will get to those once we return from seeing the mouse. Hold on Mickey, we will be there soon!
