It’s fair to say that Disney has embedded itself into my soul now, and even after being lucky enough to visit Disney World twice, I know I will return one day, and have been secretly planning the perfect trip in my mind (and in a notebook) for a little while now. There is just so much to see and do that it’s impossible to manage it all in one trip, and that’s without all of the new attractions that are built over time.
Being able to see the magic working on Miss A’s face is enough to spur me on to keep the dream alive before she tells me she’s too old to go to Disney. A day I hope will never arrive.
Having a holiday to Disney World doesn’t come cheap though does it. The previous trip took a lot of saving to be able to manage justifying the cost. With all the extras that you can pay for when you’re caught up in the magic, it can be a very expensive holiday. I do think about the option of taking out a loan to pay for the ultimate Disney trip, the holiday that would last at least three weeks, incorporate the Disney Cruise ship and squeeze everything in that I have on my bucket list so far.
The main thing I would change for the ultimate trip would be to upgrade to the dining plan to save paying for character meals out of pocket like we did this time. We would be able to book a sit down meal once a day and experience so much more and saving money at the same time. The biggest meal experience I want to go and see is Hoop De Doo Revue, a meal and show that just looks so much fun when I watch Youtube videos about it.
I even researched how long a Disney Cruise would take to travel from Port Canaveral to Dover, but at fifteen nights, I think this would be too long, unless we both managed to get at least five weeks off work. It would be lovely to adjust to the different time zones slowly though whilst experiencing the Disney magic, instead of being cramped in Economy on a night flight back from Orlando.
There is no doubt about it, we WILL be returning to Disney World in the future, and I like knowing that we have options to make the payment for the holiday as time goes along.
