Re: Happiest Place on Earth?
And that growing kid thing was another reason we went from 14-16 day trips to around a week, give or take as they became older. While Disney was never cheap it started to land in the absurd category for our budget. Not saying I didn't get bang for the buck but we still had to come up with the buck. It is why I also ripped them out of school for two weeks in the fall, it wasn't crowded, nearly as hot and far cheaper, plus there was always some type of perk beyond dining tossed in back then. Disney has really outpaced the CPI for a decade despite the low CPI.

Think this is bad, wait 'till you guys get to experience college tuition, room and board, student fee's and food costs at Universities. In the 12 meal/per week meal plan and a handful of misc credits, lunch and dinner averages out to $12.50 and breakfast $9.00 and they still have to find 9 meals elsewhere. Joy! Joy! My DD's University has doubled in price over the last 10 years. Yep, far less Disney trips for us. One year and one semester to go!
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
