What I am loving most about having next year to look forward to is that it is somehow making this Christmas feel more special, it's very exciting knowing that next Christmas will be a white one! (Well, not on Christmas day as that will be in CA, but we'll see some snow beforehand I assume!)

What a stress, DizOz, I'm glad it worked out. I can't believe that there would be a problem when you are being good enough to give a year's notice! And it's not like you're asking for six months off or something. Don't employers realise, we work to live, we don't live to work?

Our 2 DD girls are already talking about the possibility of it snowing whilst we are in NY. Neither of them has seen snow so it would be great to see a little whilst we are there. Also they are looking forward to ice skating in Central Park.

As for employers unfortunately we some its a one way street and usually you don't find that out until you start. Good news could be on the horizon as I was called yesterday by a head-hunter to gauge my interest in another position closer to home with more pay and less hours.

Either way Disney here we come next year. For me I am getting excited as next week we tick over the 1 year to go.

I'm so excited for all of you people heading over in December next year. I'll keep my fingers crossed you get to see snow.

I've always dreamed of a white Christmas and last year my wish finally came true! It is the best thing although I don't think I could live anywhere that has snow all of the time. But it was so much fun seeing the kids out in the snow in the morning making snowballs and snowmen. The best Christmas ever. And we get to do it all again next year

I'm with you Marlea. Great to visit and see but would hate to live somewhere with snow all the time. Prefer the sun

On this day next year we are supposed to be checking into Kingstown Reef That all depends on flights, though. We could be leaving a day or two earlier.

A year to go! :w izard::h ug:

Hi Dean,

I have had to go to Fort Lauderdale a few times on business whilst in Orlando. I found the best way was to drive. We hired a car with GPS system and it was easy, once you get on the freeway its pretty much a straight run down. By the time you get to the airport, check-in, go through security, wait for your flight, the flight itself (Most of the time would be taking off and landing), getting off the flight, getting your bags and travel to WDW. You would have already been checked in if you drove.

Thanks for the info - it makes sense

Driving on the other side of the road scares the life out of me however

Lots of exciting trips planned here. It will be amazing how quickly the next year will fly and pretty soon you will all be off on your adventures.
