Hey Girl Hey! Dying To Go To Disneyland!

Hey Girl Hey!

Sorry it’s been a while since I wrote a Hey Girl Hey Post. I’ve been so busy with the baby and trying to get the baby room ready, I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write one of these. I also try to pick a topic that I really want to vent about before I write one. Today’s topic is how I’m dying to go to Disneyland, but don’t want to go being short on money. It’s like daggers to my heart seeing everyone else I know go non-stop for Pixar Fest and seeing everything I could possibly want to buy sell out before I ever get a chance to go there. Disney nerds like myself know what I’m talking about. What makes it worse is I’m an annual pass holder. I’m a signature pass holder, which is the second from the highest and even includes parking. It has little black out dates as well. I know what you’re probably saying. Well if you have a pass and don’t have to pay for parking why don’t you just go? The answer to that is, I don’t want to go alone and I don’t want to go with out money to spend. I don’t have a click of friends who all have passes and will go with me and I also don’t find driving an hour or two by myself to Disneyland and going to the park alone fun. I’ve done it before, but didn’t like it at all. I hate nothing more than not being able to enjoy it with someone else. I also don’t like eating alone at my favorite restaurants and riding on rides alone!

I’m also BROKE as a JOKE with all the baby bills we have to pay and from buying stuff for the baby. I don’t like to go to Disneyland broke as a joke. I want to be able to buy all the tasty treats I want and cute stuff I want. Yes I’m a spoiled brat when it comes to Disneyland. I don’t like feeling like I can’t get something I want like a Pixar Alien Macaron because I’m too broke to get one. I want to be able to eat my way through Disneyland and have the best time ever with my hubby or friends. I don’t want to go and be the one penny pinching while everyone around me is buying everything no problem. It makes me feel bad about myself and stressed, which I don’t need while being pregnant. I do envy those people who can go to Disneyland and bring everything including meals with them and only buy their kid like one toy. I commend people who are annual pass holders and can go and not spend a dime at Disneyland. More power to you! I’m 100% not one of those people. I’m a take my money Disneyland kind of person and I also love collecting Disney products. I’ve been collecting them since I was a kid.

I’m a make reservations at all my favorite places to eat, try all the new tasty treats, buy all the new products I want, and spend the whole day at Disneyland kind of gal. I’m thinking once I do my splurge day at Disneyland in June, I can go back and not spend as much because I’ve by then tried everything I wanted to try and have gotten everything I wanted to buy. It just doesn’t feel right or as fun to me to go to Disneyland and not be able to enjoy every I want to enjoy. I know these are total FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS, but literally I’ve been dreaming about going to Disneyland and it’s been eating me up inside. It’s like daggers to my heart watching everything with Pixar Fest from a far. I just felt the need to share! I’m counting down my days until I can go. I know it’s the stupid thing to do when I have an annual pass, because I literally end up only going a few times a year because of how I like to go, even though I can go a heck of a lot more with my pass. I figure even going a few times a year pays for the pass itself with how much ticket prices are these days. They are cray cray. Anyway… I just had to release my Disneyland longing with you today.

Thanks for letting me get it off my chest!

Any other Disneyland folks out there like to do Disneyland like I do?
