Going to Disney World – (Ep. 9)

It is no secret that I love Disney World.  I enjoyed going as a kid and I enjoy going as an adult.  I am excited to take my son and see Disney through his eyes.  However, I will be waiting a few years and here is why.


Most of my friends and family thought I would take my child to Disney as soon as I could.  I would if I did not work, had a large vacation budget I could spend each year, and I could travel when Florida weather was not too hot or too cold.  But I can not do all those things. So I have to manage when I take my son to Disney.

If I take my son while he is young, I will get a lot of cute pictures that he will not remember.  He will go on a few rides and I will remember it, but he will not. If Disney cost less, then yes, maybe I would go with my son young, but to fly and go to Disney while he can not remember it, is not bringing any value to our family.  

As a teacher, I also can not travel when I want.  I would love to go in October or November when the weather is not so hot and the crowds are not as bad.  However, I can not just take that time as a teacher. And I do not want to fly down on a Friday and back on a Sunday or Monday if we have a long weekend.  As my son is seven months, it does not seem worth it to spend that time traveling.


As much as I love Disney, I do not want every vacation to be Disney either.  Part of the magic for me about Disney is that I do not go as often as I want.  If I went every year, I do not know if it would feel as special. I want my son to know that Disney is a vacation that we do sometimes, not every year.  


As my son is only seven months old at this time, I also find it hard to travel now.  I would like to be out of diapers before I go to Disney as it seems like life would be much easier for all of us at that point.

In the episode, I talk about Target and there RedCards.  You can have either a RedCard credit or debit card in order to get 5% off Disney Gift Cards.  Below you can click on the pictures to bring you right to Target’s website about each of these products.  The 5% off your Disney trip can make a huge difference.  I have done it for years and do save money!   It is also a way to have your whole trip paid for before you go as you can use these gift cards on Disney property and to pay for your Disney vacation.
