Light bulb moment for me!Here's why. There are two reasons.
Just returned yesterday from short WDW trip. DD was with her high school band and I was with my extended family. Naturally, I was belly up 1-1.5 hours before open (no other way to do it - right?!?!). As she woke up and I entered the parks. I sent her moment by moment texts detailing my list of rides accomplished. After her not so magical day at MK, she sent me a text asking if we were returning this summer b/c she missed a strict schedule and wanted to ride rides. After all her moaning and groaning over the years about schedules, I was over joyed to be appreciated for my over zealous planning of the past. BTW she also had good "no plan" days in AK and Universal. But she ASKED me to PLAN a return trip. After experiencing all the new down sides of WDW (haven't been in a couple years), I told my sister that I was probably on my last visit for a long long time. This comment was made four days ago. The minute DD said she wanted to go back, I immediately started planning a trip despite the fact that I stretched the budget for this trip. Why??? Why would I have an "I told you so" attitude about DD not having a magical day at her favorite park?
Well, you answered that question for me.
BTW I am still crunching numbers today to plan a mother/daughter trip! After all, she will be a senior next year and will soon be on her own. I already miss her and think this would be a great memory for us. Crazy, right???
