Staying at the Poly with wife and two kids from Oct. 17-22.
Several reasons almost didn't book this trip...
1. Money. This is really a minor reason compared to reason 3. Money is there, it's just that it could be spent on other things. I look at it this way; one can always make more money, but memories can't be replaced.
2. SSE is closed. This is my 5 year olds fave ride! I took her on it at least 6 times last year. Oh well. We'll get back again after the refurb is done. Besides, I asked her and she said it was OK to miss it this time as long as we ride HM this year!
3. All the complaining on this forum. Between the negative posts and the "Declining by Degrees" articles, I was becoming rather disheartened with visiting WDW.
Gave it some thought and decided the positives of WDW far outweigh the negatives. Can honestly say that in, 6 or 7 visits to WDW, I've never really had a bad time there. Thought about alternatives, like an overseas Disney park and that option is totally out of the question due to lack of time, and having to travel with kids. Did explore visiting DL, but would have been a bit of a travel hassle due to flying out of Milwaukee (no direct flights to Anaheim resulting in more than double the travel time!) and well, there's no Epcot or AK there, so WDW won.
So that's that! Any Micechatters going to be at WDW Oct. 17-22?
