Given that we just returned from celebrating our two year anniversary, I thought I would talk about the very first trip Mr. and Mrs. Deals took together as a couple. We had been together for just under a year and decided it was time to take our first vacation. So where better to go when you are a “dink” (dual income, no kids – term I just learned)? DISNEY!
So why Disney and not some cool destination where a couple of young 20 somethings can party it up? I really have no idea. What were we thinking…
Oh now I remember. Mrs. Deals had two free Airtran award tickets due to a bump or something and Orlando was the only availability for redemption. Go figure. And why the heck would anyone wait around the airport longer for an Airtran ticket? That should’ve been a warning sign for the future.
Truth be told, Mr. Deals had been to Florida maybe once before in his life which came as a shock for Mrs. Deals who had spent so much time traveling south to see her grandparents. Now, I had been to Disney before, but in California, but for some reason Mrs. Deals had it in her mind that space mountain at Disney in Florida was just way better than space mountain in Anaheim even though I don’t think she’s ever been. I’d love any opinions on this from readers, because to me they were both the same. I think the real difference was the log ride in Orlando got me more soaked than the one in Anaheim. I digress…
So we went to Disney and stayed at some sports themed hotel. Come to think of it, it’s pretty shocking it wasn’t a chain hotel. I mean Mrs. Deals was starting to really travel and was slowly forming her obsession with points and miles. We were there for just a long weekend and ran around like kids going on roller coasters and eating funnel cake. All in all it was a good time, and I’m going to be scared to death when I go back one day with kids.
As always, thanks for reading and I’ll see you next Sunday!
