My fave Disney purchase

Alas, my short, long-weekend getaway to WDW has ended. Short, but sweet. Was it worth it? Of course - Just as I suspected it would be! I even managed to fit in some shopping. However, if you are a "frequent frequenter" of WDW like me, you own mostly everything in Mouse Gear already! This was my first WDW visit at Christmas, though, so I had to commemorate the experience. Definitely my favourite accessories of the trip (that I purchased the first night) were the Minnie and Mickey Santa hats we purchased for the family! Fun AND warm for the cooler nights!

Another Disney Moment

We are enjoying Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tonight, and yet another special Disney moment occurred. My daughter volunteered to dance and sing on Main St. with a Walt Disney World dancer. A rare opportunity to snap a pic of just my girl and the castle... And not much else.

WDW: Short & Sweet-Is it worth it?

As I'm sitting here blogging instead of packing for my upcoming WDW vacation, I'm also asking myself, is it worth it?

We are heading to the World for three nights, four days. I'm beyond excited at the prospect of any WDW trip, but I have to admit, I'm a little afraid of coming home after only three nights. Will the short duration be enough to give me my Disney fix or will I come home wanting more?

Well, who am I kidding? Even after our two week WDW trip, I came home wanting more. I don't think we, as extreme Disney fans, will ever come home from a WDW truly satisfied. There will always be things we wish we could have done, but didn't get to, or things that we just wanted to do more of.

But, I know that, while it will be a short visit, this trip still has enormous potential. We were in WDW this past August for four nights, and it ranks as one of our favourite trips! Despite the limited number of days, we made the most of each and every one! Not only did we go into the parks each day, but we took time to swim at our resort, visit Downtown Disney and visit with different family members who were also visiting the Orlando area.

So, I pose this to you... If you could take a weekend trip to WDW or none at all, what would you choose?
