Two days away from Disneyworld. That's right, you heard me correctly... it's world! Capital W, O, R, L, D. (FYI, "world" means it is the one in Florida. You know, the better one)
And yes, we can afford it on a teacher's budget. And it's already all paid for. How? Frugality and savings. Oh, and I also have stopped supersizing. Now I just "large size" my fries. I feel so much healthier. (I don't supersize the drink either; instead I make six extra trips to the fountain for a refill. You get more exercise that way)
I haven't been to Disneyworld since Cathi and I were dating. In fact, had I thought things through, I probably could have proposed in Disneyworld... on the drawbridge of Sleeping Beauty's Castle, under the magnificent glow of the fireworks overhead. But the truth is, I was an idiot.
We purchased a food package for this trip, which means we can go to any restaurant in any of the four parks and order whatever we want. (Only certain restaurants apply, meaning the plusher ones for the non-teacher type are out of bounds) I think this excites me more than anything. Sure, I already paid for the meals, but I still am ordering the most expensive stuff on the big board. I have to - no matter how improbable - feel that I am screwing THEM over somehow. No, I am definitely going to get my money's worth. (And by "getting my money's worth" I mean "continue to get taken by Disney, but by a lesser rate than the rest of those suckers)
My concerns are the weather and the crowds, both of which don't appear to be major issues at this point. The weather has warmed up in Florida and the only large crowds we will likely see will be on Martin Luther King Day and the weekend.
I've heard great things about Expedition Everest and Rockin' Rollercoaster.
So yes, the grand ole' Blog O' Cheese will not be updated for some time. In the mean time, you may want to peruse some of the Cheese Blog classics from days and years gone by.
AWAY WE GO...
