So here's something I've been pondering, and I'm interested to know what your take on it is.
I live in CA & I've been to WDW once a year every year since 2004. Of those trips, I went in January every year except '05 when I went in June. Last year I wasn't really feelin' it for a return, but I did because I was going with a first timer and there was the Buy 4 Get 3 promo. It was an enjoyable trip. I got to visit Busch Gardens for the first time as well. It was a nice way to escape the doldrums of unemployment that I'd been in then.
Fast forward to this year. I have a job again. The Buy 4 Get 3 promo has restricted itself to Moderate resorts, which excludes the Value we'd stayed at last year. The friend I went with last year has already informed me that she can't go back even though she really wants to because of financial reasons, but that's not a deal breaker because for '04 & '05 I went to WDW as part of visiting family that I have in FL, and I could easily do that again in 2010 now that I'm 25 & won't get killed with underage rental car fees. (Obviously I'd have to rent if I was visiting family.)
So here's my question for anyone who wants to respond. Like last year, I'm not really feeling an urgent urgency to return, but I wouldn't rule out making a return if it was for the right reasons. But also, like last year, there really isn't anything in WDW that I can look at and think "ooh I wanna go check that out!" especially after going annually for a while now and knowing virtually all there is to know about the Resort from a guest's perspective. Can anyone think of a good reason for me to go back? Those of you who go every year for longer stretches than I have, why do you keep going back? I'm just not feeling it going back and doing the same stuff yet again. I do that with Disneyland, but that's a very low cost trip not having to pay for parking or admission. WDW is not a low cost trip with the plane, admission, hotel and other expenses. So is there an incentive to go that I'm missing? What say you about it?
