A couple years ago, we bought into the Disney Vacation Club timeshare and have been doing annual visits to Walt Disney World in Florida. This makes a lot of sense for our family as we are all big Disney fans (my wife and I even met, got engaged, and had our wedding at Disneyland) and my parents and sister also live in the Orlando area.
For this year’s trip, we saved up enough points for a 4-night cruise on the Disney Wonder followed by 5 more nights staying at the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge. As much as possible, I’m going to try and keep up with at least some general reporting on the trip as it goes. I’m actually writing this entry during our flight from Los Angeles to Orlando.
The last 12-hours or so before the trip didn’t exactly go smoothly. Shortly before I was ready to head home from work last night, I got an email from my wife that water was backing up in our kitchen sink and washing machine drains. As soon as I got home and confirmed that it wasn’t a problem that could be quickly fixed, we called for a plumber. It took them until around 11pm to get the problem fully repaired at a cost of around $1300.
