Yes, I realize how stupid this sounds …
And I’m not proud of it. Hell, my daughter is probably going to kill me when she finds out. If she finds out. Lol But last year, I managed to get 2 complementary tickets to Disney World, along with a few other places in Orlando, and I never went! Why? Because I was scared! My anxiety kicked in, and everything went downhill from there.
I’ve never been anywhere alone, let alone just me and my daughter, so going to a whole new state scared the hell out of me! I know it sounds silly, but I literally couldn’t see past the “what if’s”. What if something went wrong, what if we didn’t know how to do this or that. How were we going to get around? Actually, it sounds pretty stupid right now, because of course we’d be able to get around. The hotel has a shuttle! There are buses. Someone would have stopped and helped. But I had let fear consume me so much, that I let those passes go.
Sometimes, as a mom, I just want everything to be perfect. (It doesn’t help that I’m naturally a perfectionist on top of being a mom.) But I’m slowly learning now that not everything is going to be perfect and we just have to make do with what we have. So next year, I’m letting go of fear, and the what if’s, and I’m just gonna do it anyway! Just push me off the edge, and I’ll learn to fly. I think that’s how it works. Lol
So since Christmas is coming, and I’ve already promised myself to take a chance, how about buying us some tickets for next year? Disney has made it easier than ever to give magical Disney vacations, theme park tickets or special Disney experiences as gifts for those lucky friends and family on your gift list. (That’s us!) This could be us next year! See photo below.
For the first time ever, guests (that’s you) can select from a full portfolio of Disney destinations and experiences to gift (to us) all in one, easy-to-navigate place … GiveDisneyVacations.com. From an unforgettable voyage aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship, or a vacation at the sun-drenched beaches of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina Hawaii, to the enchanting world of magic and make-believe at the Walt Disney World Resort. (Which ever you decide to give us *cough* we’ll be more than happy to accept. Lol)
All I’m saying is, Disney has made it really easy for you to purchase tickets for a friend, and since I need to redeem myself, why not just purchase a few for me? Half of y’all are already in the Christmas spirit anyway! *side eyes everyone that skips over Thanksgiving as if it doesn’t exist* And now that you know you can gift someone a Disney vacation, would you?
