    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Our trip is booked and paid for also, well the room is. We still need park tickets. We usually get real good airline tickets too. Going in October.

    We're driving so I guess gas is my only concern. Got the park tickets and the dining plan all booked along with the resort so that's all taken care of. Gas and souvies is all we'll have to worry about.

    We only live an hour or so away from Disney so our only cost concerns with transportation is gas. We have annual passes, so park admission really isn't an issue and the DDE helps some with food. Since we're over so often, we rarely buy souvenirs anymore. Mostly all we have to worry about is gas...and we do have an SUV.
    Upcoming Trips to WDW:

    Dec 6-10: Disney Wonder
    Dec 10-19: Port Orleans French Quarter

    No. Like all addicts, price won't keep me from getting my fix.

    I'm kind of hoping that if the national (global) economy does go into a recession, Disney will offer some pretty decent discounts. Not that I'm hoping for a recession, but I'm just pointing out a silver lining. But I don't really think that there will be a recession, since the FED lowered intrest rates, Bush's and Congress's "economic stimulus" package, and that most of the recession talk is media hype. Ok, Glad I got that out of my system

    I'm one of the fortunate ones who not only lives very close to the mouse, but I have an annual pass as well. I may have to cut back on trinkets and eat BEFORE going to the parks, but I should be able to get plenty of trips in. Maybe the extra hard-ticket events may have to be curtailed a bit.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
