If it seems like I've been slacking a lot lately, it's only because it's true. I've been in vacation mode for a bit. And will be in vacation mode for a bit longer. Until about Labor Day, I think.
Why? Well, I've been focusing on vacations. I do Disney World a lot. Not just me and Wife, but taking grandchildren too. I live less than four hours away from the parks, so I could do a day trip. I don't, because I'm not as young as I used to be, but I could.
My trips have been mostly one or two-day affairs. I have made a couple of trips longer in the past year, but only a couple. Most have been single day or two-day trips to Disney World.
Being an annual pass holder means I don't have to pay as much per visit to the parks, and I can do multiple parks in a day if I so choose. I've even done all four parks in a single day, but only once.
Since some family members are well aware of how often we make the trips to Disney World, they do wonder if it's actually more affordable than they imagine. It's not, as this video blogger will tell you.
Now, I don't spend that much money when I go to Disney World. As I said, I have an annual pass. I also shop around for hotels and don't mind staying at cheap hotels, as long as they're clean and comfortable. And I'll pack a lunch in a heartbeat. And, I'll drink that awful-tasting water from the water fountain. Because I'm cheap.
I recently renewed my annual pass. Sort of. Long story for another time. But I'll be going to Disney World more in the next year.
