The Jay Family Countdown and Live Report ASMu and Daytona Beach

Hi everyone! I have never done one of these before but it seems like so much fun I'm going to give it a whirl.

Who are we: Me (Amy/racinjunkie), dh (Steve), twin 15 year olds James and Kate

Travel plans there: We live in Baltimore and we're driving. Just last night we added on to our trip so here's the current plan: We leave on Friday 8/2 at 5am!!! We hope to arrive in Daytona by 7 or 8 that evening. We did the Priceline name your own price and got a great deal on the Hilton Oceanfront. We'll spend Friday night and Saturday night in Daytona. Sunday morning we're up bring and early and headed to WDW. We check in to ASMu on Sunday with 5 day base tickets and DDP.

Parks and ADRs:
Sunday 8/4: Epcot with dinner at Teppan Edo at 8:20pm
Monday 8/5: Magic Kingdom with dinner at Be Our Guest at 7:05pm
Tuesday 8/6: Hollywood Studios with dinner at House of Blues in DTD at
Wednesday 8/7: Animal Kingdom with dinner at Boma at AKL at 7:25pm
Thursday 8/8: Pool and DTD (most likely a load or two of laundry) with dinner at Raglan Road at 7:00pm
Friday 8/9: Magic Kingdom after Breakfast with Chef Mickey at 9:30am

After WDW and the trip home: We check out of ASMU on 8/10. My current plan is to hit DTD again for a few hours before heading back to Daytona. We'll send 8/10 and 8/11 nights in Daytona. On 8/12 we'll head for him at 5am hoping to arrive home around 7 or 8pm.

What's left to be done: Ummm... it feels like everything but it's not. All the toiletries are planned, purchased and packed.

Today 7/28: dh is play a gig with his band, I'm hoping to coax him into getting the suitcases out before he leaves but time is slipping away and that may fall to me. Set up reminders for dd to prerecord her you tube video she needs to have done before we leave so she can post on Friday from Daytona. Facebook message my brother (our official dog sitter) and my Mom (our backup dog sitter) and let them know our revised plans are official. Finalize the dog care instruction sheet.

Monday 7/29: Little dog to the groomer. He's a puppy and this is his first time. Finalize the kids' packing lists (need to revise them with the added days) and make dd a form to plan outfits...otherwise I'll be unhappy with her choices and that will lead to conflict LOL. Call to reschedule pedicures for me and dd which were schedule for Friday. Call to reschedule dd's guitar lesson which is supposed to be on Friday.

Tuesday 7/30: LAUNDRY!!! and clean

Wednesday 7/31: LAUNDRY!!! and clean Renew library books so they'll be due after we get back.

Thursday 8/1: PACK!!!

Wow some of that stuff I just added because I thought about it as I was typing LOL

Well, if anyone decides to follow along, I'll try to be interesting and I plan to post lots of pics. I'm contemplating a dining review so I should have plenty of food pics!!
