I've been in Vancouver visiting friends for the weekend so I haven't had a chance to update. I flew through the states from Buffalo to Seattle instead of doing the Toronto to Vancouver thing. Southwest had a destination sale a few months ago for Seattle and all fares were 50% off. This weekend were the only dates open because I would never have choosen to make this trip a weekend before my Disney weekend. But I couldn't resist.

I drove myself and pulled into my driveway at 3:30 this morning. Needless to say I was not the most effective teacher today for my kindergarten class. I'll probably even less so next tuesday when I return home from Disney. It's sad to realize that next week at this time my trip will be all over.

Speaking of my trip, It's time for the reveal of the "Plan".

Keep in mind that it's a short trip, we're doing the deluxe dinning plan and we really aren't thrill ride people. In fact we are just thrilled to spend some time alone together and at disney to boot. Okay truthfully Dh would rather just stay in the hotel the whole time but too bad mister. We are at disney and we will be getting out and about.

Thurs April 23
-Stay in hotel in buffalo overnight. It takes a little over 3 hours to drive to the buffalo airport in good traffic and I don't want to be tired on my arrival day considering I'm only there 3 nights.

Fri April 24

MY 40th Birthday
-fly to MCO to arrive early afternoon.
-check into AKL
-Go to MK, get birthday giftcard
-Dinner at Cindy's castle (never been)
-Watch Wishes, no spectro tonight (never seen either)

Sat April 25
-Breakfast CP before park opening
-keys to kingdom tour
-afternoon at pool
-dinner at the waves
-watch spectro

Sun April 26
-Breakfast kona (trying Tonga Toast!)
-epcot trying Test track and mission space (never done)
-lunch chefs du france
-drinking around the world (not totally but definatly a grey goose slushy)
-want to see the Canada movie
-afternoon at pool
-very late le cellier dinner

Mon April 27
-Breakfast Boma
-Massages at GF spa
-lunch wolfgang pucks downtown disney
-use snack credits at goofy's for covered pretzels.
-plane departs dinnertime, drive home for early am arrival the next day and go to work!

Oh how exciting to get an A+ on my plans. I've always been an overachiever in school. Could be why I never actually left it.

I was actually outside of Vancouver. I have a good friend that lives in Whistler and another who lives in Langley so I rarely make it into the actual city other than to the airport. Of course this time as I mentioned I went through Seattle.

My girlfriends picked me up on friday but I took the bus back myself monday. I didn't want them to have to take another day off work for me.

The bus I took went from south B.C. to the seattle airport. It was a long four hour ride. They drove us through downtown seattle and to the base of the space needle. Not that we could get off the bus but still I felt like I had done some sight seeing.

So what are you going to buy with your gift card? I think I am going to spend all of mine in the POTC giftshop lol. I want to hear all about Le Cellier. I am excited about eating there and want tips from a vet on what to get.

Yay! You get to try the Tonga Toast!!!! Get ready for the sugar rush and then "Power Disney".

How was Vancouver? My sister's family lives at Burnaby area. I heard it's very clean over there. I've never been there yet but plan to because I want to go to Whistler for a skiing expedition.

I wish you have a wonderful and magical trip.

Fun getaway to see your girlfriends! Why do all the great air fares have to be in the USA? Glad you had a great weekend!

Your plans sound excellent, I would love a trip right now like yours.

Have a magical time and be sure to share when you get back!

and enjoy your bday gift card!

I can't wait to try Tonga Toast in August. Yummy!

Hi there! I just finished reading your other 2 trip reports (neglecting a lot of work, lol) and I just loved them, you have a beautiful family!

I am looking forward to reading your TR about this weekend, and I hope you have a great birthday! I celebrated my 30th in the World (as well as my 32nd this year) and it was very special.

I think I'm going to buy mickey earrings. I've almost bought them twice before. Speaking of twice that's how many times I have been to le cellier. It's all about the cheddar cheese soup for me.

I've been wanting to eat in France since reading your TR. I think you went to the other one but still. You sent me in that direction.

Thanks for popping over Topdog. Loving your trip report. Still waiting on the edge of my seat to find out what happens with your lost wallet.

Pretty embarassed of my sad photos compared to yours. You sure do take a great shot!

Vancouver is lovely. I have family out there as well. My Mom used to work for Air Canada and got us all family fare tickets to go visit so I've been many times.

You must make it out some day especially to do the whistler skiing trip you mentioned. I've got friends in Whistler as well. It should be an even better ski vacation now that they are upgrading for the olympics.

I'm super psyched for the Tonga!

I'll be out your way the weekend after this trip for a dance recital. Tell me all your snow is gone!

Thanks for the lovely comment about my family and I'm impressed you've made it through the other trip reports. Should be less meltdowns in this upcoming trip. I hope.

So I'm in the midst of packing but I'm not so sure what to pack. I have way too many clothes out. I'm not really sure how hot it is going to be. I'm so used to going to Disney in August that I'm not sure I'm taking weather appropriate clothing with me.

I still have a million things to do so I have to STOP sitting at the computer.

-finish packing clothes
-pack toiletries
-print out coupon for airport parking
-print map to hotel
-print maps for my parents of various places they have to transport kids to
-wrap a birthday present
-change guest bedroom sheets for parents

I'm promising myself not to log back in until I finish my list. Hopefully I will get it done.

Your plans look perfect! Wow, I can't believe you're leaving so soon!

You are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE Wishes and ahhh I dream of having a massage at the GF one day!! Are you planning on doing a TR?! I hope so!

What hotel are you staying at overnight in Buffalo? We're starting to think of staying over instead of leaving at some crazy hour in the morning.

MMmmm and Tonga Toast. I could so go for a piece of that right now!

So I only have to make it through School today, then an early dinner with the kids and then we're off. We're staying at the airport tonight and we leave tomorrow.

I've packed everything but my toiletries (but I can do that afterschool) and set out lists and maps for the grandparents.

I can't believe the day has come! I've waited so long and other than the suitcases in my room it doesn't feel possible that today is the day.

I hope it doesn't end too quickly. Now I wish it was longer than a weekend.

Bye for now! Next time I check in I will be out of thirties.
