Oh My, Disney Overload??

Just got done making our reservations for next year (decided to go ahead and call since they aren't coming out online for two more weeks!), and after linking them to MDE, realized that it looks a little ridiculous!
We currently have FOUR trips on the books, yikes!! But to be fair, they are all short, and involve trips to see my family as well. (Actually the one in July next year will probably get trimmed by a couple of days, just not sure on which end since we won't know Lily's swim meet schedule for the summer until next spring.) So really, they are all between 2-4 nights.
This October, we are making a quick weekend trip to see my parents (while DH is away on a canyoneering trip in Utah) and I talked them into doing MNSSHP! I haven't told the kids about that part (they know we are staying at POR, just not that we are doing anything park-related) It's not so much that I want to surpise them, b/c that's not really my thing, I just know how fickle and unpredictable my parents can be, and I wouldn't put it past them to back out at the last minute (and my sister, who lives with them, is due to have her second baby a few weeks prior, making the situation more precarious that normal) So just in case... I'd rather not have two epically disappointed kids on my hands when we go. But hopefully it works out. Lily has already ordered a Madeline Hatter costume for Halloween (from the Ever After High series, she's the daughter of Mad Hatter) and it would be perfect to wear to the party!
And then we have our pre-Christmas trip at WL that's been planned for quite a while, got all of our ADRs made for that one. We will be spending a full day at MK, plus breakfast at Chef Mickeys, Cirque du Soliel, Kid's Pirate Cruise, and a manicure/spa afternoon for DD and I. And another visit to Kennedy Space Center. Going to be an action-packed few days, lol!
For next year... I had wanted to do a waterpark/camping trip in May, but because of other travel plans, it turned out that we needed to go during the week of 4th of July. Too hot for camping, so I suggested a Value resort instead, and Dh actually seemed okay with it! I briefly considered staying offsite when, a few days later, he made a couple of comments suggesting that he was "Disney-ed out", but when I mentioned that idea he got all upset and said that he was looking forward to trying out one of the All-Stars (this is DH who has always vehemently opposed any value-resort) Go figure! But we'll likely stick to our waterpark-only plan, since it's bound to be too toasty for much else.
And then, we decided to push the camping trip back to Thanksgiving week - I'll risk cold over hot. No idea what else we'll do on that trip, but the Fort Wilderness campsite ressie is made, anyway.
And then really thinking ahead, we might be doing a short cruise in 2016, probably in March. DH has always been anti-cruise, but I suggested the idea of a short Disney cruise followed by a few days at Universal, and he didn't protest. The talk immediately turned to Universal, but he didn't seem opposed to the cruise part at least. So we'll see.
Guess I better get to work on some new tickers, lol!
