Bibbity Bobbity Boo (A boring vacation post)

I'm really beginning to think I'll bore all of you with all my pictures and rantings of being so happy. But, you know, its better than the emo stuff I've been up to the last few years. no more woe is me. Or I'm keeping it to a minimum.

The short version of the last week is I worked, I went out with my friends, I took a road trip yesterday. Like Kitten and I have the last few times we've had a day off together. We went to St. Louis yesterday. Specifically to see the zoo. I'm a big zoo fan. I'll admit it. And she'd never been to theirs so we had a super nice time.

After we went to a park that surrounds the zoo and has lakes and museums and trails and in general lots of grass to roll around in and enjoy. I did. Very much. Took off my shoes and everything.

I've been sitting at the computer all morning working on plans for the trip we're taking in November to Disney World in Florida. I honestly don't think we're going to get to do everything we want to in the time we have alotted. Which is sad. It never occured to me that 8 days in Disney World would not be enough. But its not. For one thing, we get to eat free in all the restaurants. We don't have enough time in the day for all the places I/we want to eat at. So I'm narrowing it down.

We also get a massive amount of free tours with our package, and I'm trying to work out which ones I can take on what day. I kow for sure I want to do Dolphins in Deapth (its playing with the little critters, how fun) and the other Aqua Tour, where you get to scuba in Epcots gigantic aquarium, "The Seas". There's a 7 hour tour of all the parks that gets us a peek into the Utilidors (the underground workings of the theme parks - the stuff of Disney junkie Urban Legends) There's also a tour for The Animal Kingdom that puts you in with the animal hospital and feeding areas and stuff. We have tickets to go see Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba. I'm excited about that. There's also three dinner shows I want to go to.

Have I bored you yet?

On top of that we get all the recreation and instructions free. Parasailing, Skiing, Wakeboarding, Canoeing, Horseback riding, cairrage rides at sunset. Free golf. Free tennis. I can rent sailboats and paddlebaots and monatauk whalers. The whole nine yards. Plush guiding bass fishing excursions and bike riding get the idea.

We also have reserved seating for the fireworks shows, a evening fireworks cruise, spa treatments for free, all sorts of stuff.

And that's on top of all four parks in the magic kingdom, plus the waterparks and the nightclubs.

I'm almost afraid we'll be more tired when we come home than when we leave. But it'll be worth it.

We decided to drive down, too. Airline tickets are so stupid expensive and we like to drive together. It'll be fun.

Have you checked airtran for tickets? Their whole point is to be cheap as hell. I just priced it using basic November dates, and it's as low as $157 a person.

I learned to hate driving all the way to places like Disneyworld when I was a teenager, thanks to dad's insistence to do all the driving in a single day.

Here's an idea: take me with you. I'll do the things you don't have time to do, and then I'll report back to you so you don't feel as though you missed something. *G*

Thanks for the Tip perpet. So far I've found 88 one way for out of The Lou but nothing great so far. I'ma keep trying though.

Aravis, I'd love to take you. Seriously. It'd be so much fun. I keep saying we need to take a blogger field trip and everyone vacation together...My travel agent had booked a room for two with almost as much cool stuff as us for my would be bridesmaids. It was only 1,000 for 6 days....

I just won a trip to Disney for 4 days/ 3 nights. Can you believe it. Hopefully I will be able to take advantage of it....not looking good tho, too many stimpulations.

I'll keep you posted. What dates are you going in Nov?

Alecya G said...

We're going the 11th through the 18th. Should be lots of fun. I can't wait.

Just saying hi... didn't even realize you were blogging again! How's that for being out of the loop... Anyway, glad to hear you sounding happy.
