Drive on Tuesday to meet us in Orlando and drop the kids off with us, and then back to Key West to spend Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. We tried to tell them how much driving they were in store for, but they won't listen. We also informed them that the kids needed to be in Orlando by about 3 PM in order to have a chance for us to keep the schedule we had for them. That makes their wakeup call in Key West for around 5 AM.

I think they've lost it.
That's A LOT of driving!!!! That will be a trip report in itself!!!

I've tried to do Rainforest twice -the last time they literally sat us under the elephant's but- service was extremely slow just to get drinks so we ended up leaving before ever ordering anything. Food at T-Rex was really good and they have a build a dino workshop( just like build a bear) Ask for the ice cave if you do T-Rex- .
You know, that's a good question. We tried to watch POTC with them. He had no trouble with it but she got scared during the ghost scenes. We wanted them to know who Jack Sparrow was before the cruise.

Gonna need it. We're going to be busy, especially since it's only a 3 day and we have to try and fit in a "little" time for ourselves.

We've tried to get them to change. They're just not buying into it. I'm a little scared of what the ramifications on us will be. Especially that first night when we take them to Rainforest.

One more little tidbit, if you want them to stay clean and dry before you board don't take them walking on Cocoabeach the morning of. When I was 5 1/2 months pregnant with my son, DH & I thought it would be a great idea to take my 5 yr old twin nephews on vacation with us( a dry run so to speak)
They were into space so we took them to the Space Center-we decided to just go walking on the beach- not go near the water-by the end of the walk they were soaked except for a 4 inch square in the middle of there backs. Let's just say it was a good thing I was already pregnant, and Thank God not carrying twins- otherwise we may have chose not to have kids after that experience- now my nephews are 15
As far as getting "a little time alone" two words Grampa & Naps (4 u not the kids)
Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back

No, no time on the beach. They're getting enough of that down in Key West.

Thanks everyone. I feel kind of special now. Of course, I have been recognized a few times before. Scary, huh?

We leave in 9 hours. 4 AM wakeup call. We'll be in Orlando around noon. I'm not gonna sleep at all tonight.

Just briefly de-lurking to say:

"Yeay, another Mozart trip report! Loved them all, never made myself noticed, probably never will again either but am looking forward to every word of it!"

Okay, quickly back into lurkdom ...

Okay, just pulled in to the casa del Mozart about an hour ago. Few things to share just to begin:

1) My brother in law, in the process of driving SC-Key West-Orlando-Key West-SC ended up driving 2,492 miles on their trip in 7 days.

2) My nephew is explosively outgoing, but is also just about the most understated guy in the world, except for when Stitch crawls onto the elevator behind him. Then he went so ballistic that I thought the elevator was going to break. More details on all of that to follow.

3) Kids clubs - the best thing about a Disney cruise. Hands down. Forget Palo's, Cove Cafe, Serenity Bay etc... The kids programs really make the cruise for an aunt and uncle who aren't quite used to being parents for a few days.

4) I'll never do another 3 day cruise again. Its way too freaking short.

5) Customs took forever this morning. It took us nearly an hour from the time we lined up to the time we got to the luggage area, and we still hadn't gone through customs yet. Don't know what the deal was.

Alright, I'm going to bed now. Been travelling in one form or another all day. Stories to follow.
