No Florida next year (not worth the cost)

In almost 30 years of going to Florida every year we have decided we aren't going next year as we just don't think it's worth the cost. We can afford it but with the increase in prices and the rubbish exchange rate we have decided to give it a miss in 2020 and maybe just visit some places in the UK (we've never even been to Scotland).

We will always have fond memories of Disney from our first trips, but it's just far too busy now and not enjoyable as it once was, even going off peak and using the busy day guide. We regret buying annual disney passes as they got little use when we went last month and will probably not get that much use on our trip this year.

I appreciate that not everything is about disney and in the past few years we have usually just done half a day at Disney parks (using our 7 day non expiring tickets). If our lotto numbers come up we will go next year as we will have money to waste, but I won't hold my breath😀

We are so grateful to have been so many times as for many families it really is the holiday of a life time.

The good news for dibbers is that I will still be on here (so no need to get upset) and we plan to return to Florida in 2021 (assuming the man upstairs allows us to - taking nothing for granted).

You want to get one of those jars you put your coffee money in, I bet with how often you are in Costa you could save a packet and get to florida a lot quicker and probably be able to take a few dibbers with you 😉😉

That made me smile because I am of course in costa now, and I'm going to another costa later for lunch with Mrs MH (it's all go)😀

Mrs MH bought me a filter coffee machine for Christmas to try, and in fact I now now using it to have my afternoon/evening fix most days (using costa filter coffee).

Mrs MH clearly wants to go back to florida then if she's bought you a coffee machine to cut back on your coffee spends... Were you there hammering on the door at opening time lol

I hear you , we were going to defer to next year but after seeing the ticket price increase ( without the annual increase added yet) and the exchange rate we decided if we didnt go this then we really wouldnt be able to afford it next . Tickets now cost more than flights for a family. I normally book extras but weve said they have to go and its a basic trip this time. Sad as Id really like to go 2021 as its my 50th as well but I have a feeling it will be too costly by then. Scotland is absolutely amazing so you wont be disappointed at all.
We keep saying we need to go to southern ireland but not got there yet

Im going next Friday for a week with s friend, business for her, using our dvc points for me!

We arent going as a family until 2021 & thats for my 50th!

Its too costly even with DVC & there is a big world out there waiting to be seen!

Disney / Florida will always be our special place, just cant be our go to place!
