I've basically packed for my son (who still doesn't know about the trip) because I didn't want to worry about him wearing something this week that I thought he'd need. Since he's a 7 year old boy he'll never notice that anything's missing. (In contrast my 5 year old daughter would definitely notice!)
I still can't decide what to wear to the party which is holding up my ability to pack. I know, I know. I'm just not that important and it doesn't really matter. I thought I had decided on an outfit but my DH thinks I'm dressing up too much so now I'm undecided. Again. And I should hope that this is my biggest problem all week.
Sadly this is a very short trip and we leave at the crack of dawn (well, really pre-dawn) on Saturday morning and return home late on Sunday. Other than the party I have no specific agenda and no plans (except an afternoon nap on Saturday - that's on the agenda). This will be a go with the flow weekend and I can't wait!

Safe travels to all and I'm really looking forward to finally putting some faces to the names I know so well! My son is a little shy so forgive him if he isn't chatty. Then again, he often surprises me! I'm just so grateful to have the opportunity to go on this trip and be included in such a special event!

I have to take a puddlejumper over the Cascades to Seattle early in the am. I hate those prop planes, but it was the only way I could get to MCO by Magical Express time. Seattle to MCO takes a little over 6 hours. Should get in shortly after 5pm.

One sister is meeting me on Friday and my Mom and youngest sister get in on Saturday morning. I'm really looking forward to exploring WS by myself!

When is everyone heading back?

I leave at 3pm on the 13th.

We are likely going to meet someone for dinner, pre-WWOHP. We MAY (or may not) have room for 1 or 2. We are departing for MCO this Friday, and staying at Animal Kingdom Villas. If you are staying at AKV (with no car), check with us before Friday to see if we have space available.

Our trip is a long one- we arrive Friday the 9th and come home Sunday the 18th. It's been way too long since we've been so we're looking forward to the long trip!

Don't over pack on the super warm clothes. It has been great here the past couple of days and it really isn't going to change from what I've seen. The coldest I've been is on the buses and in my room. I have thr air set low because I love sleeping in a cold room. A light.jacket is all I think you will need.

P.S. I'm wearing a 3/4 sleeve Santa shirt.

Oh what's going on at the Poly on Thursday night?! I'm looking for something to do Thursday night because it's the one night I'll be solo. Flying in Thurs. Dec. 8 around noon and leaving Wed. Dec. 14, staying at CSR. I have been trying to get tickets for the Victor Manuelle concert at the House of Blues but you can't purchase them...you have to win them through the radio station WHKQ and I think you have to be a Florida resident. I'm going to phone them tomorrow to see if they'll make an exception! I know it's a long shot but if anyone happens to have an extra ticket or knows a way for me to get one please let me know! Otherwise, I'd love to hear about any meet-ups Thursday night, especially if they involve dinner, drinks, and/or dancing lol.

Just a reminder, someone is going to teach us how to Dougie on Saturday night right? :P

They are expecting a cold front on Friday. Temps could go into the 60's.
www.wftv.com They are usually pretty accurate with the weather.
