Soooooooooooo, we are now at 33 days til Disneyland and 433 til Walt Disney World!

I can't go all that way and not pop in to see the Mouse. Plan is to fly into Orlando the weekend before Labor Day and stay probably 4 nights (til Wednesday) then drive down to my sister's for the rest of the week.

Having even a remote plan to go to WDW next year will make it just a bit easier to leave DLR this year.
Oh that sounds wonderful!! That gives you plenty of time to plan.

You're getting so close! And a trip next year to WDW? I'm jealous.

And possibly another Mom & Son trip next year. I have mixed feelings on that. DH doesn't love Disney as much as DS and I but he does enjoy our trips. He mentioned last night that maybe DS and I could do the Disney part next year and he would fly down at the end of the week for the part at my sisters. While I do love the idea of another Mom & Son trip, it is hard to get over the guilt of spending the money & not bringing DH . But then again, DH pointed out that he and I went to Disney 4 times without DS (before he was born!) and that DS and I have only been twice without him! And I am sure DH and I will have trips after DS moves on with his own family.

Yep, too far away to stress right now. But I do like to make my reservation as soon as the next year's dates open up. Usually I pay a bit each month until it is paid. This trip was different. But doing to WDW, I will have to pay a bit each month and the more months I have to pay, the better!

Ok, enough rambling aleady ...

I knew we were going around the same time but didn't realize it was the same day until last week!

Yes, boo on that drive time! I don't know if you saw this, since I'm a little closer to Eugene, but Allegiant Air now flies out of the Eugene Airport. They have flights to LA for as low as $50 or so each way. They only go twice a week, and some dates are more like $120 each way, but I may do this on my next trip.

Anything other than that drive would be better.

Figure I should add some countdown pics myself ... mine have to be from WDW since this will be our first trip to DLR! All will probably be from our last December trip although maybe I will dig back a bit further for a few!

Here we go ... Celebrating 28 days!
