I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through.

Sorry things are so cluttered around here.... I thought about cleaning up, but then realized that I'll be ditching this thread in about a week.

Yup, and starting a TR shortly after!

Sorry to hear about DW and the job. That's got to be rough.

I'm also sorry to hear about DW's struggles on the job. Not cool. I hope you guys are able to enjoy yourselves anyway--sounds like you need the break!

ItJeff - I hate to hear about your DW's job. People just don't care about each other anymore and have no integrity.

Any plans on a hotel near Orlando the night before?? Have you set an arrival time on the 23rd?? We are doing MK Sunday afternoon & evening. Eating at Chef Mickeys that night.

The hotel for Saturday is booked. We are staying at the Orlando Vista Hotel. It is "within walking distance of Downtown Disney". I'm not so sure who's doing the walking, but we'll probably drive over. Map

It is supposed to be fairly nice, and I got a good AAA discount. It was recommended by Len Testa when I called into "that other podcast". So, we'll see how we like it. Hey, there's a big pineapple out front... it can't be all that bad, right?

We will probably check into POR really early Sunday morning and try to make it to Epcot by the time the park opens. I am traveling with 4 females, so we'll see how that pans out.

steelernut - sounds like you're hitting the ground running! We do Chef Mickey's on the 28th. Can you tell him to have lots of desserts ready for us that night? Thanks!

Oh come it, it's only a mile.
But since parking at DTD is free, I guess you might as well drive there.

The van is packed! Many electrical devices are charging. Everyone is in bed except me.



Tomorrow morning the girls will finish the "puzzle" with the final piece. And then we will finally know who is in this picture! It's killing me trying to figure out who that is!

DW has a few last things to pick up tomorrow. Some lunch and dinner stuff to fix for the drive, and we need to put the refrigerated items in the cooler.

I will leave work around 3:00 physically. Mentally, I will probably never get there. I'll do a quick "Clark Kent" routine into some travel clothes, then we'll pick up DD11 from school and hit the road! For about 30 minutes, then I'm sure we'll need to stop for a potty break.

I'll be updating facebook during the trip, if you're friends with me there. You can also follow me on twitter @itfryguy. Or just wait for the TR!

Thanks for sticking with my ramblings re-planning and revisions.


itJeff, you've just finished your first PTR! What are you going to do now?

I'm going to Disney World! (I've always wanted to say that)

About the behind the magic tour...something to next time, rught? The itenerary you have sounds great, you may put on a few pounds having all those sit down meals though.
