Updated information for 2010! Walt Disney World’s Armed Forces Salute 2010
Last summer when Hubby and I received our economic stimulus-check we immediately put it in a CD at USAA. We were making plans, big plans. We were going to Disney in the summer of 2009! This was something to look forward to. Hubby was deployed & going to miss our entire summer of 2008. We are now looking forward to a vacation at Disney, our little-American Dream. Our family of five will be the perfect age. There are fun things for the bigger boys and fun things for the younger boys – and I think EVERYTHING will be fun.
We have our reservations at Shades of Green, “the only Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC) located in the continental US. Shades of Green® on WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort is a military resort serving the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, Retirees, Military Community.” Plus, I have three ‘free airline’ tickets and a discount voucher from our monstrosity of a trip home from Wisconsin this summer. Believe me I am very EXCITED about this vacation this summer. But to top off all my excitement I got an email from our FRG this morning:
