AH! You ninja posted! OMG, that sounds like SUCH a good time!! I'm a big Christmas nerd too, so that's like a dream trip! See, what I would do is go ahead and book the flights on Orbitz (or whatever site it is that gives you money back if the flights go down) and then I'm sure however much money you can save by then there will be SOMETHING you can book... But then, I'm bad like that...Ahhhhhh!!! Ok I spill!!! Soooo basically last year was possibly the hardest year we've ever been through. 10 days after our honeymoon DH lost his job, and then things just went bad! My grandma got sicked and passed, I had to take a leave from work to help my fam....Major badness! In that time when my grandma was sick and dying was poor DH's 30th birthday. I wanted SO badly to be able to do something really nice for his 30th. He never gets a big fuss made for him, or anything. So I felt so bad I couldn't do anything. His birthday is Novemeber 18th. We went to Disney our first trip in November 2007, and did MVMCP. He LOVED it! He is a HUGE Christmas nerd! So basically I started thinking, hey his birthday falls on a Thursday, we could do a long weekend trip (3 nights) and do MVMCP! So I started playing around with ressies on disneyworld.com (ASMu, Pop, etc.). About 2 weeks later or less I got the 20/30/40 pin for my dates!!! NO WAY!! So I called and booked! I got the WL CL in a honeymoon suite for like $1800 with meal plan! Then I heard from close friends that they stayed in a HM suite in WL and it was not very nice. I've been reading tons on the GF so I decided to just call and see what rooms they had on my PIN. Well sure enough they had a King Deluxe room Royal Palm Club!!!!!!!!!!! It all came to $2400, which I think is totally great! It all comes down to how much money I can secretly save til then....I hope I get to do this for him! He will CRAP!
The plan would be to take a really early flight from NY to Orlando on Thursday November 18th. We would check in and hang out in the resort, etc. Then we will hopefully head over to MK for our first night of MVMCP! I'm trying to get CRT for 5 pm so we can eat in the castle. I think he will love that on a MVMCP night.
The next day would be another hang around the resort and chill day (maybe DTD). We would do a second night of MVMCP on this night.
The next day is up in the air!! That would be for DH to decide! We could do EPCOT, DHS, MK or AK...Up to him!!
Then sadly we would take a realllllly early flight the next day. Right now the flights are $79 each way but I'm too scared to book. We'll lose so much money on the canceled airfare if God forbid we have to cancel...AHHH!! Brain overload!!!
