Ok read the posts from your ADR's forward...sorry Jess. Lovin the plans and the flexibilty you have written in and of course using TOP 5's we love that! and when ever I hear of someone going in a large group which we have done, I think it is important to have all togehter time but more imprtant just that special "your family" time....

your days are looking great and WOW it is super close too!

No worries, I'm subscribed to yours but tend to be more of a lurker since I'm so behind on everyones Tr's I don't comment cause I'm way behind. Well and now you finished it and I'm still not done catching up


So our plans keep changing and changing and I'm less than 2 wks away from our vacation

We recently have had some car issues, and I don't mean with our van I mean with the kids being upset sitting in the van. My husband and I have been talking the past two days and with the long drive down we want to give the boys a day to just relax and get use to the house before we jump into a park... so we will be driving Friday and Saturday, then Sunday we will sleep in (our only sleep in day) and do some swimming, do some grocery shopping if needed, maybe head to fort wilderness if the boys seem up to it, and do our group dinner at Chef Mickeys and either head somewhere to watch the water parade or try and view the fireworks from one of the resorts or do the firework wagon ride, it's really just going to be a whatever we feel like day (the only plan is our grand meal at chef mickeys)

oh and...

11 days until the boys drive cars
10 days until we wear mickey hats

no worries...you can still read when you have a chance

that's ok...it happens, it will all work out once you get started and see how things can be paced

UH oh for the boys not keen on being in the car long...do DVD's work??

the first day sounds perfect...I try not to scheudle anything major on the first day either...it's hard work traveling.

oh and...

11 days until the boys drive cars
10 days until we wear mickey hats

Thanks for the well wishes, this will probably be my last post until I return, as my internet has been down due to weather, and I'm scrambling to finish packing and preparing for the trip.

Our entire week of plans changed again, and I will share what we actually do when I return.

Several changes in life, including a resignation at work, so when I return from vacation I will have more time to DIS (but really more time with my kids)

And a possible move in the summer, which we should also find out about the week after we return.
