Keeping my fingers crossed!

I have wanted to go on a girls's vacation for such a long time. Unfortunately my best friend's health does not allow her to do much and I really don't have anyone else I would want to ask. I had asked my sister to go with us to the Outer Banks this year but she backed out cause she really didn't want to do the long drive, even though she wasn't driving at all, plus she said she had too much work to do at home. Anyway, none of us ended up going because of hurricane Florence. So DH and I booked a last minute trip to WDW instead. We both have talked about how much fun we would have cause when we get together we giggle like school girls. She's my pal and we always have fun together. So fast forward to last Friday when she asked me if I would go with her to her eye doctor's appt just in case she couldn't see to drive home. I helped her pick out her new glasses and we went out to eat. That was when I sprang a girl's trip to WDW. She's not into Disney at all and immediately I got "that look". So I told her she doesn't have a clue what WDW is about. I know she thinks it's all Mickey Mouse and princesses so I had to set her straight. When I started to tell her about all the cool rides and the theming of them she was getting into it! She had no idea! So she definitely sounds like she wants to go. Now we just have to hope her husband is ok with it. Unfortunately he is a wuss. He doesn't even like to drive let alone fly or go on a boat. My sister says he'll be a worried mess if she goes. He was ok with her going to the Outer Banks with us because DH was going too. I told her tell him that I've been to WDW 16 times, 11 of which I've flown, so that's 22 flights to Orlando and back and I have never had an issue. We're staying at Pop Century so we'll be on property the whole time. It's probably one of the safest places to vacation in the country. I know what I'm doing so he doesn't have to worry. So I hope just because he's a worry wart about EVERYTHING that he doesn't persuade my sister not to go. I know it's not a money issue either cause she didn't flinch when I told her the cost. I told her I want to book it no later than late April when hopefully free dining is announced. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she commits cause I can already hear the giggles. Never mind those two old ladies in their 50's acting like a couple of kids!

That sounds like so much fun. Sending some that it all works out and the "wuss" doesn't overrule the trip.
