Blog Hop: 2012 Excitement!

What I'm looking forward to most in 2012...  That's the theme for this weeks blog hop with Lisa at Babes in Disneyland...

WOW- that's a trick question!  I have two very special trips planned for 2012 to Walt Disney World that I am so excited about!  But I'm REALLY excited about my trip TOMORROW!!!  I get to go to Chattanooga to meet my friend, Melissa from Disney on Wheels to see the Beauty and the Beast 3D movie!  We met online last year, met in person at WDW in September and now have a day of fun planned since she only lives 2 hours from me.   :)

The first trip I'm looking forward to is the trip with my hubby.  We are headed down next month, without kids, to experience the world for a week.  We have dinner reservations for each night at restaurants we wouldn't normally eat at.  We have plans to visit different clubs, bars and lounges each night that we've never been to.  I am planning on eating a cupcake at each park at least once- something I wouldn't do with kids!  We may not even ride any rides... but who am I kidding!  I know we will, but we won't be rushing from one attraction to the next because our boys are hounding us. We'll get to stroll, yes, stroll, and take our time looking at all the details, taking pictures and admiring what is Walt Disney World.  I am beyond excited!

The second trip I'm excited about is the mission trip to Orlando with my high school students in July!  I get to "work" at WDW!!  Not work for WDW, but I get to go to WDW for work!  We will spend 3 days doing mission work in the Orlando area for the less fortunate and spend 2 days at Epcot and Magic Kingdom.  It makes me giddy to think about spending time at these parks with the youth I love so much.  I love my job and I love my youth- I absolutely LOVE when two of my loves collide like that! :)

What are YOU looking forward to in 2012 regarding Disney?

  12. Sounds like you have some GREAT trips planned this year! Adult-only trips are so...decadent! I'm sure you'll have great fun. And what a fantastic way to wrap up a few days of helping others!

    Have a great time visiting with Melissa and enjoy Beauty and the Beast! We're looking forward to that this weekend as well :)
