If you're a WDW freak, like me, you'll understand..

I've been reading as much as I can find about Universal for our trip in November because, well, I'm a planner. The message boards that I read are mostly Disney boards, but they do address Universal Parks, also, albeit to a much lesser degree. I'm reading and reading and, inevitably, wander over to my first love...the Disney boards. I'm reading the Disney boards because I'm already trying to plan my 2009 trip. I always have my next trip being planned in my mind.

It's a sickness. I know. I'm reading, I'm thinking, "While I'm right down the street I'll pop over to the Magic Kingdom with Kevin for one night. After all, it'll be free because I'll use my Disney Rewards card." See how I justify? That was my plan and then I kept reading how it'll only take a maximum of 2 days to do Universal. Today I said to Roni, "What do you think about doing Disney one day while we're down there?" She was for it, so off to the message boards I headed again to plan what we were going to do.

This is where the angels started singing.

I find out that the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) starts the week we are there!!!!!!

I need to pause here for a moment to gather myself and wipe the tear of joy from my eye.

Let me just say that, to me, there is absolutely nothing better than being at WDW while the Christmas decorations are up. They are absolutely beautiful. The atmosphere is amazing. It is magical.

Needless to say, I went online and bought our tickets for that party. I thought I was excited about this trip before. Now I'm over the moon.

Oh what a fun time! Because of your pictures, we scheduled a Pooh breakfast when we were there! Check out our "princess" makeover pictures!! It was a hoot and LOVE love love Disney. Islands of Adventure is awesome with little ones too. We'll do that next time.

Oh! That's great!!! Would you mind emailing me some of the good WDW message boards. We are planning to take the boys in Dec of '09. It's difficult to wait until then, but we'll try to hold out.

Sounds great, I wish I wasn't so chicken to take John on a long trip like that so young.

From one Disney freak to another, you know I had to comment! I didn't know how you thought you were going down there and NOT visiting WDW. That's just CRAZY talk. I mean, I'm sure Universal is fun and all, but please. It's not even close to being the same thing.

I'm so excited that you're going to the MVMCP this year! Our Christmas trips are usually Christmas week, and the party is over by then so I've never been to it. But you are SO right, there is nothing like being in WDW over the holidays. I can't wait to see pics!

If you didn't already buy your tickets, email me as we searched for months and came up with two places to buy tickets from, one for disney so you get a free day and one awesome price for 7 days of universal/islands of adventure for 98.00
Excited for you guys! LOVE it there and so did the girls! Well Em wasn't quite as thrilled with the Pooh but tolerated them!!!!
