Wanna Go To Walt Disney World?

January 26th of this year, I emailed Kyle, a guy I’d met on DisDates the May before and become good friends with, and basically said “no pressure but I’ve priced a Walt Disney World trip for us. What do you think?”

We’d tossed around the idea of a trip on Twitter for a few weeks prior to my email. Casual mentions of Disney Cruises, Disneyland, and Walt Disney World, but something inside of me cracked in January, and I realized I was seriously going to go to WDW this summer. I was prepared to go solo, but I knew I’d rather have adult company, so I totally went out on a limb and emailed Kyle.

Here’s probably as good a place as any to mention that Kyle and I haven’t met in person yet. It’s also a great place to say that I’m not worried at all. We’ve now known each other for over a year, have emailed, talked daily on Twitter, friended each other on Facebook, and spoken numerous times on the phone. He's an awesome guy, and I’m good with this plan. :) (Oh, and that's most likely the most "juicy" details you're gonna get. Haha!)

Anyways, a few emails back and forth after my “wanna go to WDW” email, and Kyle was contacting his travel agent, Pam at Kingdom Konsultants, to make a reservation for us! That really seems to be the way it goes when I ask someone to go to WDW. (Remember the spontaneous trip in May of 2009? By noon LaRae was making our reservation!)

For the next few blog posts I’m going to write about what our plans are for this trip (a pre-trip report I guess) and about what I’m looking forward to most. I mean with a start like this, how could this trip be anything less than FABULOUS?

**Quick note: This pre-trip report is only a small glimpse into planning a WDW trip with two WDW fanatics. Hours of talk goes into plans, and it's not at all boring. Every minute of it is joyful planning full of laughter an excitement! This trip has some differences than my last trips too. For instance, if I wrote about a trip with my family there would be pages of design work & images, but I’m refraining from all that this trip. :)

Next post [May 24th]: Where did we decide to stay? Did we go value or did we get a great PIN code?


  1. So have you budgeted to buy lots of vinylmations on this trip?

  2. That's a lot of what I'm intending to get for souvenirs this trip, but I'm more looking forward to trading them. I have 4 or so set aside to trade this trip. :)

  3. The suspense is killing me! You left us with a nasty cliffhanger! I wanna know where we're staying!!!




  4. Hahaha! You do know I switched it one last time, right? I thought Pam sent you the email too...

  5. You didn't have her move us to an off property hotel, did you? !_!

  6. Guess you'll have to wait for the 24th for that little surprise. ;-) Early bday present and all...

  7. Congrats! Hope you guys have a great trip!

  8. Thanks for stopping by, John! This trip wouldn't be happening without your site. :) Thanks!
