Disney at Halloween

With a year of blessings under our belt we really were not totally sure if we would have a “big vacation” this year- With our New House and new budget we really wanted to be sure that we were being good stewards of the monetary compensation that has been graced upon us thanks to Jason’s really hard work with Spectrum Group.  While he has blown it out of the water in the leap of faith to going to full time real estate last year, we utterly credit our multitudes of blessings to being obedient with our tithes.  We haven’t fully jumped on board with Financial Peace teachings but we did commit to not buying things unless we can pay cash- that included a vacation.  So when I started to get the Disney bug over the summer (that was easily being egged on by good friends that hinted to also going to Disney) we took a hard look at if we could put a Disney line in the budget and make a trip over fall break.

In all of our dozens of trips to Disneyland we had yet to ever go in the fall when it was Halloween time.

One thing about the boys and Halloween is that they “don’t do scary”- which for this momma that grew up loving everything about Halloween- the gorier the better- has always been bitter sweet.  So I figured Halloween Disney style would be just the right compromise.

We worked hard and stashed enough to take a 5 day get away to California over the boys fall break and even add a bonus special treat of attending the 2013 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party.  Mom and Dad Geroux were able to join us for several of the days and we also got to spend most of our time with our good friends the Parkers.

This trip I also splurged for my souvenir and purchased the Disney photo pass+ (I will do that EVERY trip from now on)- we got copies of every ride we rode and of every professional photog that anyone in our party stopped at
