Sooze,

I just noticed your ticker and you are going to MNSSHP! You will love it. We had a blast last year. The parade is awesome---best I have ever seen. We actually watched it both times. DS dressed up as Russell from UP. It was a wonderful time.

Plus, I see you are going on the Dream in 2011. It looks like we will be as well but in early spring 2011. DH and I are celebrating 10 years next year so we wanted to do a cruise and decided to take DS along as well. Our original plan was the 7 day cruise on the Magic but we are first time cruisers and thought a four day may be a little better. Plus, the new ship looks awesome. If we go in February, we will add three days at Disney and celebrate Jeremy's birthday and our anniversary the next day. Oh, so much Disney planning to do !

Erika

Yes! I am so excited about MNSSHP. After hearing all about it, especially from Diane and Lesley, I decided we just need to suck it up and go! The problem is that DH is a band director, and he has NO weekends off during the fall. So I am doing this solo with the kids! Still looking forward too it, even though it won't be too relaxing.

And, yes! Our DREAM cruise!! We had some good friends book it, then they called us and asked if we'd like to join them. After crunching points and numbers and more numbers and points, we decided to jump 'on board'! Two more families/friends of ours (including the friends that we are joining for this spring break trip) will also be along for the cruise. It will be BEYOND band geekiness!! That will be an amazingly fun TR to write!

Hope to hear all about your cruise, so we'll have an idea what to expect!

Thanks for joining! Sorry I haven't updated this PTR in so long!

Oh, I think that's a very good thing. And one of the many reasons your trip reports have to get broken up because they are hundreds of pages long!

Single digits!!!!!!

Ok, so technically, we won't arrive in Disney World until Friday, which makes it TEN days til we get there... but I don't care! We LEAVE in 9 days... so LET'S DANCE!!!



I'm home from school today with a sick Shaelyn. Took her to the doc... nothing... just 'a cold'. I hate that. But I'm glad she's getting it now so we can all get it, and get over it, in time to leave!

I spent today going over our BUDGET Not a fun process, but at least our taxes worked out better than we thought... and we should be able to keep all our reservations (unless we choose to cancel them out of sheer obesity concerns!!)

To keep you busy for a little bit... does anyone have links to some PACKING LISTS on the Disboards!? I know they are out there, but I thought you all might have your own favorites you could share! It's time to drag out the suitcases, and START ORGANIZING!!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

One week from today... Thursday...

Wow!! We are at the ONE WEEK MARK!!

I'm stealing this idea from Lesley, but I'm sure she won't mind!


One week from today....


We'll be loading the car up with suitcases, food, electronics, and excited little kids:


We will be programming the GPS to take us to the Promised Land:

(Not that we NEED directions to get there... we just like seeing what time we will arrive!

We will be crossing our fingers and praying reeeeaaalllyy hard that we don't come across weather like this:


Because we don't want to feel like this:


And we will have visions of THIS to keep us going ALL NIGHT LONG:



I've already downloaded a bunch of stuff off iTunes (including the Princess and the Frog soundtrack!!) and lots of of podcasts to keep me going. I always pull the 3rd shift which is usually 1:00am-6:00am. I truly love the peace in the car with the quiet excitement I get to experience all by myself! And a couple of Red Bulls won't hurt, either.

Anyone have suggestions for some good Podcasts (other than the Dis Unplugged?)

I like a good round of "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!" while driving.

Ok... what is THIS about? Do I just search "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me" in iTunes? Or is this a game you play? Sorry.. took the dumb pill today!
