I’ve always been an impulsive person. I get an idea in my head and have to take action. As it turns out, I am an apple that didn’t fall far from a tree.
On Friday I was at my parents house and my mom was watching some Disney 60th Anniversary show. She was locked in and loving the program, so I decided to sit and watch with her. By the end of the program my mom says, “you know what, we should go to Disney World!” While it was just thought she had, I jump up and grab my computer to do a little research. Within 30 minutes I had dates, flights and hotel information all written out with price comparisons and pros and cons. We start to discuss the idea a little further and ask for my dads input…he rolls his eyes as my mom and I are giddy doing research. Research ends and I head to bed.
Saturday morning comes and I am off to a long morning of softball. I have a missed call and text from my mom. She knows I am not available to talk. Assuming it’s an emergency, I call back…SHE BOOKED A DISNEY TRIP! Disney resort, park hopper passes and all! It hadn’t even been 12 hours and she put our plans into action. Talk about impulsive! My dad, mom, sister and me…family vacation!! Super excited, and the daughter of an impulsive mother, I run home after practice and make a google doc filled ideas for each day with character dinner ideas, what parks we will hit and when, etc.! I call my sister about 100 times to ask her what she thinks. She is ready to kill me because it is 3 months away and I am basically packed up, with my Mickey ears on, ready to go.
I am 30, my sister is 27…we laughed together about how incredibly excited we are about the trip. We wondered, why are were more excited to go to Disney as adults than we were as children? Out of excitement and anticipation, I went online and bought all four of us matching Mickey t-shirts to surprise them with when we get to the resort. You can’t go on a family vacation to Disney World without matching family shirts!
3 months and 2 days in counting!
