So last week my friend Margo and I were talking prior to starting work. I don't really remember how we started talking about Disney, but she told me that she had NEVER been to WDW. She had been to Disneyland, but that had been 25 years ago. I made the off statement that we should go, so she pulls out her calendar and that was that. We decided to go in May, cause it is warm, yet not hot and school is not out yet, and settled on May 3-8, 2010. I came up with the name, because for the first time in a long time I will walk the enitre time. Margo has fibromyalgia, sp?, so a gung ho race is out of the question.
So far, here are our plans.
ACTORS: Beth, 4 previous trips to the world, lastly in 2008, and Margo, several trips in the past to Disneyland but no trips to WDW.
LODGING: POP, as we are planning the trip on the cheap, and decided we really don't want to spend the extra $$ for a room we will just use to sleep and shower.
TRAVELING: Gonna try flying this time to save time. After pricing flights out of BTR and finding them unacceptably high, I think we are going to fly out of New Orleans or Jackson, MS. I am leaning toward Jackson, cause we can spend the night on Sunday and DS can take us to the airport and pick us up on return. It wil mean another 3 hour driving trip back to BTR afterwards, or we can drive to New Orleans and leave the car in long term parking.
HIGHLIGHTS: Margo wants to see LaNouba and the shows, and I want to ride the rollercoasters. She can't ride the rollercoasters as she has had a neck injury. She also can't ride the dark rides due to a vertigo problem, but this is ok. I will ride the rides, while she sees the shows. I think it is a win-win situation.
EATING: I would like Margo to try Le Cellier, Flame Tree BBQ, and Raglan Road. I am open to trying new restaurants this trip.
GOALS: Since I am OCD uber planner, I am making a concerted effort to not overplan and just make suggestions.
So that is what we have so far. I know that we are going to have a blast!
