    Sad I've Waited A Long time To Type These Words... (UPDATE TRIP POSTPONED)

    Edit - I've had to postpone my trip indefinitely due to economic uncertainty with rising oil prices, rising air fare, airlines going belly up, etc. Please see Page Seven.



    Longtime Micechatters will note that I have waited quite a long time to type the four magical words I am about to type below. Over the past few weeks I have worked out my budget. I realized that if I cut out some things that I didn't need that I might have a shot. I had decided to wait a bit on making an announcement because I did not want to jinx it but something broke in my favor for me financially yesterday and it appears it is now almost certain. So here we go!

    (Drumroll please....)


    I'M COMING TO DISNEYLAND!!!!

    So when will BDBopper be making his appearance? My target is around September 19th, my 26th Birthday. It's too early right now to book airfare right now but I think in few months deals will start to appear for that time. I will not arrange my lodging until I know exactly the date range I will be in the area. I will use this thread to keep y'all updated on all the exciting developments!

    I guess I will have to suck it up and plan a trip to the park for that weekend so I can finally meet you in person. YEAH.

    Are we going to do our exercise countdown again before hand so I can get skinny for my anniversary and your birthday?

    Birthdays at Disneyland are special. I celebrated one there in 2006. It was a wonderful trip for me. I hope all your dreams come true regarding this trip.

    Of course! But are you willing to persevere with me starting from the six months to go mark (March 19th, 2008)? Cause that is what I am going to do on this end.

    Congrats--make sure you factor in The Haunted Mansion's yearly closure for the NBC overlay, and plan accordingly as to which 'version' of it you most wish to see.

    I will keep that in mind. Although I haven't seen either overlay. Been to Disneyland only once more than 20 years ago as a young child. Been to the HM at WDW though and liked it.

    Sounds like a great plan. I have still been doing the treadmill but now I will just 'kick it up a notch'. See you in September.

    June is going to be a long month. And, this is a leap year.....with an extra day....you'll feel it around June.

    But, if you can just get to July, you're practically there.

    Lodging, transportation, food and tickets are the biggies.

    But, try to put just a little bit of money aside each day.....money that has nothing to do with the above, for something special.

    Just kind of a reserve fund, even if it's only a dollar each day----that would give you over $200.00 by the end of September.

    It's nice to do that...give yourself a dollar for each day you get closer, and for something other than the essentials.

    Who can't sock away a dollar per day?
