Cast – Mom Anna (41); Dad Jim (29 – for the 10th year in a row); DDs Brighid (so close to 15 she can taste it); Eilis (5); and Granuaile (15 months)
Day 1 and 2, July 20 and early on the 21st
Okay, as we were leaving Disney after our last trip in June, I had Brighid phone and see about booking one of the Deluxe resorts with the AP discount that was being offered. I figured if we got a discounted room, our next trip was meant to be. If we didn’t get the discounted room, our next trip was meant to be spent at a moderate resort 😉
Lo and behold, there was a discounted room at the Boardwalk Inn! We’ve never stayed there! Jim worked here when we lived in Orlando when they were opening up, and I toured the place when I started my job in Central Reservations, but we have never stayed at the resort. Brighid and I are just about bouncing out of our seats in the car with excitement, and when Jim agreed to the trip without suffering a major cardiac incident, I figured we were good to go.
Now, the problem is, Brighid is still in the summer math program. I can’t pick a later date, because my surgery is scheduled for August 1st. So we really only have 2 days – and that’s with Brighid taking Monday off from school. Jim and I decide with two of us driving, we’ll do the trip without stopping, and that way, we’ll get all day Friday to do the parks and stuff.
