New headrest on my wheelchair, and both motors are working properly. The brushes in the motors have burned up, so once the new brushes come in, I will be fine. Now, it's just paperwork and mail order. Still hopeful for Leap Day, but it will be very close.

I jokingly mentioned going to my wife. And she is all for it! I could not believe it! So now were checking into everything. So I may actually be there! I have the greatest wife!

So excited!

Hey, Happy Leap Day Birthday to your Mom! Is she a member of the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies? What a great way to spend a 15@60 birthday I grew up in Southern California and have been many times in the 60s 70s and 80s.

I think we are in too. Just finalizing and booking everything tomorrow - keeping my fingers crossed. We plan to fly in Tuesday evening and stay until Saturday. I am so excited!

So....it's getting closer! I'm excited that all you Disers are just as crazy as me!

My friend and I did a little trip planning today and we are going to try to hit every attraction in Magic Kingdom on the 29th. I wish they would put out a list of what is going to be open when so we can plan accordingly.

Any advice? Tips? Planning help?

Leap Day!

I am going!
My sister was looking for someone to go with & jokingly I said if you pay I will go. She said seriously that all I have to pay for is airfare and will she take me! I am so excited! I asked my dh that night when I picked him up from work and he said he it would be ok if I went!

Me too! Just dumb luck that it's in the middle of our trip, but we are so excited. Kinda throwing a wrench in the planning though, not knowing what's going to open and when during the 24 hours.

Apparently none of the plans are finalized yet. Even the CMs are in the dark.

I started a thread about this last night.

Anyone have anything special they are planning on doing?

We were thinking:

Hit every open ride/attraction
Take a picture in front of the castle every hour.

I wonder if I get tired I can take a quick nap on main street. I could always say I was trying to get a good spot for the parade!

Bob Varley once did a segment on taking a nap in the Magic Kingdom.

By the way, Holly, I hope we get a chance to meet, sometime when I am not trying to outrun a boat.
