We’ve been counting down for 7 months, and now we’re less than 2 weeks away from our “Christmas” trip to Walt Disney World!
Our last visit was in April, a trip we planned to coincide with the Star Wars Dark Side races. We also usually go to a Disney park in early fall, when the parks are decked out for Halloween. (Last time was 2016, when we went to Disneyland.) This time I wanted to shake things up and go when the parks were decorated for Christmas. Our last trip during this time was in 2013, when we were there the week before Thanksgiving.
Our original idea was to leave for Florida on Thanksgiving afternoon, after Gary was stuffed from turkey and I had probably eaten too much mashed potatoes. We would arrive at Port Orleans French Quarter on Black Friday, and our celebration “Vacation is Finally Here!” meal was for Boma that night.
Then Gary decided, yeah, let’s just get out of here. And now we’re leaving the Tuesday before Thanksgiving! Yay for longer vacations!
