Fast forward to March of 2013.
My husband's parents have been renting a condo in central Florida during the month of March the past two years. They've made it clear that any time we want to stay we are welcome. Last year we didn't take them up on the offer due to me being pregnant but this year there was no excuse and we were excited for a vacation! The condo isn't in Orlando, but it's a couple hours drive to get to Walt Disney World. When deciding to make the trip to Florida, my husband (who is not a fan of Disney...I know...why did I marry him?) told me it might be nice if while we are in Florida we take a short trip to WDW, leave the baby with the parents, and have a little getaway just the two of us. He knew I had been itching to check out new Fantasyland. Now normally I don't bring up WDW to him. I know it's not his favorite place to go so I try to be kind as he has to deal with my constant babbling about the World while at home. So as you can imagine I was completely shocked and thrilled!
Since this would be a short trip, a 1 night stay and two days park tickets (non hopper), I decided it might be time to make my dream a reality. I knew that we would never be able to afford a week long stay at the Boardwalk, but surely we could afford one night. Especially since the rest of our stay at his parent's condo was covered. I immediately emailed my wonderful Disney travel agent, got the prices, and made the reservation! My dream was coming true!
