He has no idea what he's missing

Last night my husband said to me, something along the lines of, "Did you know the prices of tickets to Disney World are going up? It's one hundred dollars just for one day! Did you know that? We are never going to Disney World. That is ridiculous."

I just looked at him and smirked.

"Are you insane?" he asked.

I said, "You have NO idea! It is the most amazing thing! Seriously, it's...amazing."

"It's hot and sticky and there's a million people!"

"We go in the fall when it's not a million degrees and there aren't a million people and the lines are shorter. And it's not for you, it's for them"

He just rolled his eyes at me and sighed his usual, the-woman-I-married-is-completely-out-of-her-mind look for probably the tenth time that day.

My husband has never been to Disney World. My family has gone almost every other year from the time I was 6 until I was 20.

I really believe he has no idea what he's missing. Not only do I think he would LOVE it, I was completely right when I said it wasn't for him, it's for our girls. The joy a parent gets from seeing their child having fun is incredible. BOTH our girls would absolutely love a trip to Disney World and it WILL happen.

I went back to a photo album I had and found our first trip to Disney World. Even at age 6 there are still so many parts of this trip (and all our Disney trips) that I remember. So thankful we were able to go...and go again, and again, and again....

Okay, so maybe just a little bit of our trip was like this here ;) Just don't tell my husband!


  1. Even in the summer, with crowds and crazy heat, it is worth it! Disney really is an amazing place and very worth the money.

  2. Hey there,
    I visiting from the SOLC. I didn't go until I was 35. It was great. There is just something special about it even though I was scared too death my thin little daughter would fly off of Space Mountain! She doesn't remember it that way at all. I would go back in a minute.

  3. Oh he has no idea! I love your tone in this piece. I too remember treks to Disney. I might have to slice bout one or two memories. Thanks!

  4. I LOVE Disney World. My first trip to Disney was with my own children. I think it is a magical place no matter how old you are. We are headed back there this summer. I love it there so much that I told my husband that I want to retire there and be The Fairy Godmother ;)

  5. My husband had the same feeling until he went a couple years ago with my family and now I am the one telling him that we need to wait a few more years to go again. I love the conversation-I have been there!
    I hope you go and he falls in love with the magic that Disney brings!
