wow, i am so insanely jealous.

since we have had to cancel our trip this year, i have been having nightly dreams of winning the lotto and planning a whirlwind trip to the usa for disneyland/carsland.

cannot wait to see your TR when you get back.

congratulations!! what an awesome surprise for your family

You know I keep thinking I just couldn't do it, book and go so quick. In 2010 we booked 2 months out and I felt like I would vomit from the stress of it being so close .

I truly admire being able to get this together so quick and it will probably be one of your best holidays ever.

Actually, I agree with you. Our 2009 trip was booked 3 months out and that was as "last minute" as I'm capable of. I'm more a 11 months kind of girl.

I get sooo much fun out of the planning and anticipation and research, I know I'd feel cheated if I only had a few weeks of it....however if the opportunity came up I'm sure I'd jump at it in a heartbeat!!

Man, we never get upgraded... Good luck with it!

1st class impulse but it's worth every cent when the kids eyes light up as we go through the turnstiles to dlr on the first day.
