Goodbye Wine Country.. Hello Disneyland!


So our conversation has continued about rethinking future vacation itineraries and I mentioned the fact that a visit to Mickey and Minnie's is in the Top 5. My dear husband looked at me like I was speaking in tongues:

DH: "Huh?"
Me: "Disneyland.. hello? The Happiest Place on Earth" (Duh)
DH: "Ya, right."
M: "Wha..?"
DH: "Just because you were raised going 3 times a year doesn't mean we're going"
M: "Oh hell yes it does..." (are you kidding me?)
DH: "How much are passes now?"
*Granted, when I moved in 1990 the price had just been raised to $20/person and I freaked over that.. Now, it's like $80-$100 a person (GAG)*
M: "I dunno but you can't put a price on an experience of a lifetime..."

Apparantly you can.

Fine, I tell him.. Rather than make it a family roadtrip in the rv, I'll take the kids MYSELF, fly out, stay with Auntie and make a day of it with her, Bren, Kadi, Janice, all their kiddos (and anyone else that wants to come). Take THAT.

Fine.

Dammit..

I'm already fighting for the rights of our unknown children to hug on Eeyore, become Tom Saywer, sing along to "It's a Small World" and watch fireworks through 1/2 opened, exhausted eyes. I choose my battles carefully but on this I shall stand my ground. Come hell or high water, someday I will be posting a picture of our smiling family (including my beloved husband), wearing mouse ear hats with Sleeping Beauty's Castle in the back round.

If you promise not to talk about It's a Small World in too much detail I'll back you all the way on this one!

I still have nightmares about that ride!! ;)

I am a firm believer in the magic of Disneyland, no matter how bad it dents our wallet! I LOVE that place. Daniel is the anti-Disney. So...I go without him, when we can afford it. I'll be right there with ya, singing along to the "It's A Small World" song!
We can leave the hubbies at ESPN Zone over at Disney Walk.

I solemnly swear not to delve into great detail about IASW but cannot guarantee that I won't, at any given moment, burst into a joyous renditions of, "In the tiki tiki tiki tiki room, where the birds sing words and the flowers croon.. in the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room.." Don't even get me started on Country Bear Jamboree..

Ya, this trip is all for the kids.. ;o)
