    That's exactly how I see it.

    We had the trip planned a week or so before we booked it but were just sorting out the finer points.

    I didn't want to set up my countdown or put my trip in the TD diary until we had it all booked up.

    Now I know it's definitely happening so I'm over the moon!

    LOL - well, we normally do 2 weeks although we have done 16 or 17 nights before (can't remember which - it was a few years back).

    We were planning a short break in Spain or Italy but decided to scrap that (maybe!) and spend the extra time at WDW.

    I remember on our last 16/17 night trip that, being used to 14 nights, it was so nice when the 2 weeks were up and you didn't have to come home. Kind of an extra treat at the end of the vacation.

    As for the wait, I kinda like the idea! I think the anticipation and the build up is part of the fun. I have 11 months to spend thinking nothing but WDW (as if I do anything else anyway - it's just this time, there's a nice long trip at the end of it!).

    I don't really think there's much planning to do anyway, other than a few ADRs. We'll just grab a park times schedule when we check in to POR and play it by ear. We know how it'll plan out. DHS on day 1, Universal day 2, probably MK on day 3 and then whatever happens, happens.

    It's just nice to be able to do half or three-quarter days in the parks rather than rope-drop to closing plus it's great having non-Disney and non-theme park days too where you can just chill out and get away. With 17 days, you need a break from the Mouse from time to time!

    All I know is that, with a trip that long, we can really take it easy. No rushing, no missing stuff - just a nice, long, relaxed vacation.

    Wohoo!!

    Since we are going for the first time in Aug, we obviously have no idea what to expect..DH kept trying to talk me into going for 4-5 days (keep in mind it's an 11 hr drive for us)---I said no way, not happening, we are going a full 7 nights and honestly now I don't know if that's enough...17 would be heaven on earth..Sigh sigh

    Winkster, are you saying that you're going to WDW in 2011? I don't think you made it clear enough in your original post.

    Do you know Alice - it had completely slipped my mind!

    I'd forgotten all about our trip to WDW.

    (Maybe)


    ps. Hope your mum is feeling better soon Merc.

    Congrats Winkster! Sounds like something you might, just maybe, could be looking forward to. LOL

    It's great to be planning that trip "home" isn't it?

    It sooo is!

    When times get tough and I'm pulling my hair out, I can just think of WDW.

    It makes long dog walks fly by too - that's when I think it all through.

    Great to be goinh home. Enjoy your trip Disneylovin'!
