Thor must be angry so much of his thunder is stolen.

Seriously? This is a vacation thousands of people do every year. It is not like your plans were unique. Now they can give you tips from their vacation so you can enjoy yours more. I highly doubt they did “just to rub it in your faces a month after your anniversary”. Still be excited for your trip. It will just as great if not better despite their plans

How in the world is this stealing your thunder? You’re right, this is incredibly petty. Don’t you have any real problems? Haha. Seriously though, why let this bother you?

Please. It’s a Disney vacation, not some unique undiscovered out of the way spot your Darling Husband and you discovered. Forget it and enjoy your trip.

They can only take away your excitement if you want them to. Unless they are normally spiteful, awful people it’s unlikely they planned their trip to in any way take away from yours. If anything they may return with useful tips from their experiences–let them be the guinea pigs!

blushblossom91:  I’m sorry that you’re hurt…but you’re right, this does sound petty.  You’re ILs going to the same place as you for vacation doesn’t take anything away from the trip you have planned.  I don’t really see why this would bother you.  Maybe you can take it as a compliment to your trip planning skills/taste?

I can see being a little jalous that they have the fiancial ability to just book the trip out of the blue.  But I’ll bet your young and it sounds like you are very good with money.  You’ll get there eventually.  

Go on your trip and have fun!

You are hardly the first person to go to Disneyworld on vacation. You are right, you are being completly ridiculous

You will still have just as much fun on your vacation. Honestly, you won’t even be thinking about thier vacation once you walk through those wonderful doors. As for it being a unique vacation…it’s not really. My husband and I just got back from a vacation there where we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge and ate at Cinderellas Castle. 


My only tip is to make sure you are on the phone at 6am 180 days before your vacation because Cinderellas Castle reservations book up quick!

I’m not gonna kick you while you’re down, OP. At least you can admit you may be overreacting. But to echo what PPs have said, you aren’t the 1st person to book a Disney vacation nor will you be the last. No one is stealing anyone’s “vacation thunder” 🙂

At least they didn’t book it for the exact time you were there….

And there is no such thing as vacation thunder.  I couldn’t give two shits if everyone I knew and their 3rd cousin went on an exact non unique vacation that I had planned.  MY vacation will still be special to ME.  They can go or not go anywhere and I DGAF.
