When It Comes To Disney World? I’m Not Above Cheating.

I am always scheming, plotting and conniving another trip to Disney World. What can I say? It’s my happy place. My sister is visiting in the summer and she wants to go to Harry Potter World at Universal. (Really? There is something else in Orlando besides Disney World?) I thought I’d devise a way to sneak down to Disney World under Harry’s cloak.

I wondered what it would take to go so I went to disney.go.com and plopped in the necessary info (2 adults, 3 kids and their ages). I created some dummy dates and chose a value resort, knowing that any chance of going meant traveling on a budget.

Imagine my surprise when this message popped up:

“Your party size exceeds the maximum allowed for the Resort you selected. Please use the Change Your Search module at left to select a different Resort or to reduce your party size.”

Reduce my party size?

Are you kidding?

What do we do?

Draw straws?

Can you imagine? “Sorry, sweetie. But you’re going to have to stay home this trip. Our group is just one too many for a hotel room. And you drew the shortest straw. But I’m sure you’ll have fun, home with Daddy. Well, with a babysitter eating Ravioli and playing with your Legos while Daddy goes to work and we’re having Mickey Bars and seeing Donald Duck and riding Space Mountain over and over. Kiss, kiss. Love you!”

(I crack myself up!)

But wait.

What if I draw the short straw?

Nahhhhh. That’ll never happen.

Because when it comes to Disney World, I’m not above cheating.
