Wait – You Are Going To Disney Again?


Yes my friends we are headed to Walt Disney World - AGAIN! The countdown is getting smaller and smaller and very soon we will officially be ‘home’. I have now lost count of how many times I have visited Walt Disney World Resort since my first arrival in 2008. So why do we keep going back? Let me share a few reasons with you.


Family vacations are not cheap regardless of the destination. We have a strong philosophy in our family of ‘experiences over stuff’. What this means is we make a lot of daily sacrifices so that we are able to travel. Eating out? That’s reserved for birthdays only. Paper towels? Here’s a rag. Movies? Better wait for $5 Tuesday – you get free popcorn, too! Need new work clothes? Thrift store. You get the idea. To me, those other things are just not important. Everyone has priorities, and our family vacations are mine. With all we give up we need to be sure we vacation somewhere we can trust. I can’t fathom spending all that money and making all these sacrifices to have a ‘meh’ vacation. I can trust that if something isn’t right during my Walt Disney World Resort visit – it will be fixed. I am confident that my family is treated as valued Guests from the time we arrive until that sad day we leave. 


As I said before, all vacations are expensive. However, I truly feel that a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a real value. The longer your stay, your daily Theme Park price is lower. Currently a one day Magic Kingdom ticket starts at $97. Stay 5 days and you pay only $68 per day. Want to stay longer? Ten days will cost you $40 per day! I know that I am not the best with math but this sounds like a deal to me! Between the multi-day Theme Park discounts, staying at a colorfully themed value resort, complimentary transportation during my entire stay, and the Disney Dining Plan – our vacations are all inclusive and I do not have to keep handing over money. This I like!


Have you ever heard of the ‘Disney Bubble’? Once you are on Walt Disney World Resort property – you never have to leave. This allows me to say goodbye to the outside world and become immersed in Disney magic our entire visit. This allows me to de-stress, and really focus on what matters most. My Dreamer Family! 


Finally, Walt Disney World is a place where you have the feeling dreams really do come true. We all have dreams. While your dream may not involved being rescued by a prince, everyone has that one wish. Walt Disney World itself is a dream created by none other than Walt Disney. There is no other place like it on Earth, and it is proof that 'If you can dream it, you can do it'! ~Walt Disney

  2. We go every year. This summer will be my kids 7th time and we have no plans to stop anytime soon. A lot of people don't get it, but those of us who love Disney totally get it.

  5. How fun! We have friends that go every summer with their entire family and have made it a point to try to stay at a different resort every single time. It's no different than a family who goes to the beach every summer. You love what you love :)

  6. We've done Disney World a few times too many so I really want to experience Disneyland California this time. Actually I would love to do every single Disney park there is, and if I can afford it I totally will. I just know that you're all going to have an amazing time and can't wait to see the photos.

  8. I am longing/waiting for the day that I can take my youngest child to WDW. I haven't been back in many years and want to enjoy it and experience it all with her.

  12. My family and I never been to Disney World before. However, it's place that I'd love to take my children to someday even though I don't really get into amusement parks much as I used to!

  13. Makes me very jealous that you've been many times. I've still never been and it looks like a dream, no matter what age you are!
