I Want To Go Back To Disney Because Disney is Always Innovating

Since we’ve been bitten (badly) by the Disney bug, Disney is pretty much on my mind every single day. We are going to Walt Disney World this fall, have a Disney cruise planned for next spring, and I’m already thinking about what to do for the next next Disney trip after that.

Should we go back to Walt Disney World again?

What if we want to take another cruise?

Or should we look into flying to California and experiencing Disneyland?

After selecting our table services meals (with reservations already made) and a couple other special experiences, I’ve already run into a few things that didn’t work into this trip’s schedule that I really would like to do.

We are staying at a different hotel in a completely different area of Walt Disney World this time. Though I’d still like to stay along the monorail sometime to see what that’s like, so maybe next trip?

When we were at Disney World last fall, we missed out on experiencing Magic Bands and pre-selected Fast Passes. Peter Pan was still out of commission. Mine Train was under construction. And Frozen hadn’t yet taken over the world.

A lot can happen at Disney World in 6 months or a year, you know?

We plan to actually go to Animal Kingdom this time. And I’m super excited to explore a lot more of Hollywood Studios (and with Amanda and her family, too!)

Having gone last fall gives me so much more knowledge heading into this upcoming trip. I feel like I’ll have a much better idea on how to tackle each park because now I can envision for myself where everything is. I know what we want to do again, what we might skip this time, and what we missed but I want to be sure we experience when we go again.

But there are always soooo very many thing you can do at Disney. Plus, Disney is constantly innovating and updating all the existing magical stuff they already have in place.

A Disney problem is a pretty wonderful problem to have, don’t get me wrong.

I think as long as the girls and I can keep Craig on board with our Disney vacation dreams, along with the help of our uber-awesome Disney travel agent, Margaret Caffey, we still have many future Disney trips on our vacation schedule.

The Disney bug. It’s the most contagious bug I’ve ever come across. You never anticipate it hitting your home. Or the massive effect it has as it passes from person to person through your family.

Another School Year, Another Life Transition (or Ten)

Last year I wrote about the significance of the end of the school year. How 365 days can change so much. And how 365 days can mean so many new beginnings. This year the *start* of the new school year was much more significant for us as a family. Mainly because Maddie began Kindergarten. But…
