Pinch me, did it REALLY happen????? - All wrapped up, and yes, it DID happen!


Are you seriously nuts?




Those of you who dont know me and our History must be thinking, she owns DVC, why wouldnt she be going?

Well without belaboring the subject heres the short version

October 2011 10 day trip planned, booked, ADRs set, F&W Deminars and Wine Tasting Dinners booked. 2 days before departure. Canceled. Pixie dust ensues and points were magically placed back in the account.

December 2011 Trip rebooked at a different resort for Christmastime instead of F&W. ADRs made, airline reservations rescheduled. One month before departure. Canceled. Paid $$$s for frequent flyer miles to be put back in account.

May 2012 New 8 day trip scheduled with a friend. ADRs set, DME scheduled, One day prior to departure. Canceled. Points in holding.

October 2012 Reschedule of previous years trip, including US/IOA, VWL & BCV. ADRs set, but didnt bother booking any deminars as the prospect of this trip looked even more unlikely. One month out. Canceled. Points did not go into holding!

Why all the cancellations you ask? Well evidently this problem can be traced back five years or longer. The long and short is that Fran has vasculitis in her left leg. This condition caused Venous ulcers to form inside her leg and burst open. We didnt realize what was going on in 2011 and it wasnt until March 2012 that she began treatment at the Wound Clinic. Normally these things have about a 16 week recovery period, give or take. She has had two debridement surgeries in the last year, and the wounds are almost all healed. One giant step was made when I overcame my squeamishness last summer and started to change the dressing on her wounds. With me playing nurse we could at least travel for 2 weeks or less as long as I did the dressing changes daily. She feels really bad about all these cancellations, but really what kind of a spouse would I be making her travel when she is in such pain and feels so horrible?

So here we are less than two weeks away. Normally by this point, I am obsessively planning my day to day stuff, suitcases are almost packed, notebook is prepared with printed confirmations. However Im finding it hard to believe that this trip is actually going to happen and therefore hard to get motivated to get ready. I decided to bail on my PTR which has been a work in progress for over two years now and dive into a new PTR that will evolve into my TR!

For those of you who have followed me on my journeys in the past youll know that me and my partner Fran are obsessive Disney lovers. Weve been DVC members for over five years now and as much as we love going to WDW, it seems that we end up using our points at DLR more than we get to the East Coast. Our last visit was in May of 2011, but that was more for educational purposes as we attended the D23 event and spent two full days of the 4 ½ day trip in a convention hall listening to seminars. My last real Disney World Vacation was in January of 2010 when we took my parents for their first trip. As you can see, it has been a very looooooong time since I have had a proper relaxing trip to the world and have every intention of making the most of it.

For those who have followed my trips, you know that we take things pretty slowly. No park commandos here. For us its more about soaking in the ambience, sipping some tasty cocktails and most of all, the food! We come back to the room every afternoon for a nap This is the two of us on our last vacation. It was a little over a month ago. We took one of the last Mexican Riviera Cruises on the Disney Wonder. Heres a shot of us from that trip.



Being an obsessive planner, even without the drive and gumption that this trip will really come to fruition, I have some pretty detailed plans. Heres what I have so far.

You will be going! I command it.

Like I have any magical powers. So I'm here. Life is still hard and nuts. But one trip link to find = Lisa has a chance. (AND I'll actually push it on day one!)

Honestly Alison - I wish I had money or power OR BOTH to jump on a plane to experience one of those in suite meals that are way better looking most Disney pictures.

Well that sounds like I'm totally flirting with you -* in suite*.

My apologies to Fran.

Here's to a spectacular trip Alison. You both more than deserve it.

Oh my goodness, this had me

Apparently Fran isn't the only shopper in your house! What about packing it in an insulated tote bag and then using ice at RPH if you need to? Still, playing the fridge for medical reasons sounds like a very good idea.

I take it you were able to use the points in holding for DLR/GCV?

This is why I've broken down and purchased the trip insurance.

I see nothing abnormal about packing a roast. I also had 20+ bags of groceries and a full carry on full of food.

Wow! When I see it in print, I feel a little proud.

Looking forward to it since we all just got our land legs back after the cruise report I really want to see Harry Potter also but since I hate flying Florida is far, far away. Looking forward to Harry opening (someday) at Universal CA. Wish the train went to WDW easier so until I figure out a way to visit I will live through your report. Hope it goes off without a hitch!

And finally, subbing.
I'd have to check it. Although it does add an extra 5-6 lbs to our already overpacked suitcases.

We can't fit it in our carry ons. Between the bag of meds, our computers, my "purse" and all that we barely make it on the plane. That reminds me I will have a question for you all later on purses/Dooney bags and how to pack carry ons....

And then yeah, you want it to thaw out but ideally not really start till you get it in the fridge at RPH. DVC is great about sticking cold stuff in the fridge right away even if your villa isn't ready, theoretically if it's still mostly frozen when you land, it'll defrost at RPH in the fridge (I'd definitely ask for one as you don't want it to spoil and refreshing the ice would be a total pita) and can go straight to the fridge at the villa.

It is economical, I'm just cracking up. Between Jenny's giant bag of marshmallow fluff and all that, you both put me to shame in the food packing category!
That's a good thing to consider! I will definitely pack it up good in an insulated bag with ice packs that are falling apart so that I can jetison them at the resort.

You are definitely an overachiever! I couldn't carry on any more than our normal compliment though, it's hard enough to travel with our meds and other stuff, much less a roast!

Hey that's got to last us all of 2013! That's like one a month plus the last of the 2012 roasts. We ate one already and will eat the other in WDW!

They have been rumoring that there will be a Harry Potter land in CA, wonder what part of the working studio they will demolish for that? Probably doesn't matter now since all the filming has been outsourced to Canada anyways. Fran has talked about driving to WDW, she likes road trips. Hope I can provide you some vicarious living! Yes I do hope that this goes off without a hitch!

Thanks, today it seems even more like it's happening than yesterday. I'm glad I started this Pre Trip report! The moral support is helping. I have a few more ideas to help get me in the spirit. I hope I have the time (in addition to finishing my Destination D trip report!)

I make my own! It keeps me from yelling at my kids when they accidentally throw them away!

You just need rubbing alcohol and water. I double bag it in case it leaks. I think I use 1 part alcohol to 3 parts water... Guess they haven't been throwing them away lately! You just want enough alcohol to keep the water soft after it freezes. They get super cold & work great! :
