Yup.

I won't have a car to use if DH is taking the boys to Legoland. I don't think there is much else to do in Winter Haven. Legoland does have a roller coaster, a water show and I think they kept the gardens intact.

We can figure out something when it gets closer. Like meet outside of Legoland and let the boys go in our car and they take Morgan and your DH in and we go off in yours and meet back up when they are done.

I'm a possible maybe.
I like this Friday to Friday plan. Sounds like a great way to enjoy the season without so much of the choas.

Now here is a question...what does a vegetarian eat for Thanksgiving while at Mickey's house? lol

Then Buffy you have to go! What better way to celebrate your birthday!

I am really keeping my fingers crossed about this because I would love to go when the Christmas decorations are up. I assume most Christmas decorations would be up during this time? I like the Friday to Friday idea too (I would only have to miss two days of work that way too?? Hmmmm...... Wonder what my principal would think?? I rarely miss work and it is Disney after all!!) Sorry- I am thinking out loud.

The Christmas decorations are up. The Christmas party is almost always the Friday before Thanksgiving (and other times too).

As for vegetarian...We have reservations for Turkey Day at Le Cellier, so that's no help. How about fish? Coral Reef is incredible!

Nancy and I have been toying with the idea of doing my 40th at the World, just trying to decide if kids would be in the mix. They probably need to be there with me since it is Turkey day.

Most Christmas decorations are up for Thanksgiving. There are a few things that go up at Epcot on Thanksgiving Day. Epcot begins their full Christmas celebration the day after Thanksgiving but all the other Christmas celebrations are in full swing by the week before Thanksgiving.

We are going there this year for Thanksgiving as it will be their first major holiday in the new place. If it goes well, we may do it again. It would be every other year to keep some holidays with my in-laws.

That means 2013 would be a year I was there. I could possibly meet up with you all for a meal that is out of the park or if you go to DTD. I couldn't afford a single or two day pass for all of us and there is no way my kids would let me go to a park without them.

Anyway, put me in for now.

hope you all can make it too! will get you added to the list!

I am starting my trip fund with my next paycheck. Julia is so excited for this trip and it's over 2 years away. I may get in trouble for pulling her out of school but oh well I think mommy/daughter time is just as important!!
