I have a question for those that are driving to Disney. What time do you all leave? We live in the Hudson valley area of New York and will be driving to Disney. Do you think if I leave at 5am on Wednesday morning and drive most of the way and stop in Georgia overnight so that I'll only have about 5 hours the next day that ill be okay? I'm not sure if in missing traffic in the DC area or not...I heard that can be terrible! 😱

I made my room request last night. Apparently I was pretty specific which amused the woman I spoke with. Also made sure the kids birthday was noted on the reservation.



Last, but not least, I woke up this morning doing the single digit dance! October 12th can't get here soon enough!!!

I know right?! Come on October 12th! I was also very specific in my request. She took it all down so fingers crossed we will get what we desire!

I think you will be good. I actually was born and raised in Dutchess County so I know exactly where you are. I get up that way to visit once or twice a year or so. And I live in the DC area now. I would estimate on average you would hit the DC area around 11 am-ish, give or take, depending on the route you take and what kind of morning rush hour you hit, But leaving at 5 am you should make good time before any really heavy commuter traffic. Lunchtime going thru DC shouldn't be too bad. It's the morning rush hour and late afternoon-early evening traffic that is HORRIBLE. Have a good time at the World! I can't wait for our trip. 16 more days to go!
EDIT: I just saw your ticker. Congrats on the upcoming big day!

Quick question: if my daughter has the Peter Pan costume from the Disney store with the foam knife and bow and arrows can she wear those at the party? I am not sure if I can even get them on the plane? But if I can she will want to wear them. Thanks for any help.

Yes. "Obviously fake" weapons are fine, especially if it is Disney's own that they likely sell in the park anyway.
