No ticker for 2 year and then 2 in a week

Hi there

I'm Laura. One of the Dis Moms. I thought after my last trip May 2011( BWV) that I wouldn't be going back to my happy place for nearly 2 years. DH (tim) likes WDW but doesn't LOVE it like I do. So needless to say I was unhappy but we have found lots to do in the mean time.

Then two weeks ago I hear rumbling that the DIS moms are off to hit the dream again. I have fear of ships. I know crazy right. Someone let me watch the Posedion Adventure as a child and that did me in. I still have nightmares about Ernest Borgnine having to save us all as we climb to the bottom of the ship to be saved. Therapy would help but really that would take away from my WDW saving account So anyway I learned that the moms would be doing a brief land trip so I am cashing in my disney dollars and miles and joining them for a few days in May 2013.

So soon after I had told DH about this little plan of mine, I get call from him while at work asking if I wanted to go to Orlando in August without the kids. Of course any good vacation planning knows what I thought next. I can sneak to WDW!! Well he first told me he was staying at a Hilton. I said sure I'll go with you and then we can sneak away to the Keys for along weekend. He mumbled something about NOT going to WDW. I reluctantly agreed. But then I got the address of the Hilton. It wasn't the airport one, or the DTD one but BONNET CREEK!! Umm hello I had to find away to get to the parks at that point. So we agreed that I will go while he is working and still hit the Keys for the weekend. My kids hate me right about now for all of the trips I have had without them

So here is where I am at. DH is flying in on a Monday and I will meet him on Wednesday. I thought about doing the Mears shuttle ($21 one way) but I got a heck of a deal thru SIXT car rental. We need a car to drive to the Keys on that Friday-Sunday. I had quoted Hertz at the Hilton (nearly $50 more for less days) and I still come out ahead while paying for parking ($13/day). I am going to buy a pass thru his work that is a buy 4 get 3 free and then upgrade that once I get to WDW for a non-expiring pass. I also found that I can get DH a convention entrance pass for the Thursday night so we will go to Epcot for drinks around the world.

I have us booked in a small B&B off of Duval St. in Key West.

Now my trouble is how to deal with the tolls. Do I keep all of the change out, pay for it per day ($6.00) or get a sun pass and risk having it attached to the car. Oh my first world troubles...laalalala
