We cross the border and stay at a hotel in Buffalo the day before. We eat dinner out and the kids hang out at the pool.

for dl, we just take Benadryl and knock off early so no one is crabby the next day. we only live an hour from dl so it's no big deal. we usually just stay the day then drive back home.

wdw is more of a vacation. I guess i'll go through my lists of what luggage contains what things, take the dog to the sitters, put dme tags on, make sure theres gas in the car, and knock everyone out with some zzzquil or Benadryl early because our flight out of lax is at 6;30 so we have to leave here by 3 am. last time dd and I went, dh stayed home and we were guests on someone elses vacation. I didn't have so much to do but honestly, the dis boards have made it so easy.

The ritual that always happens and I wish that I could break, is not being able to fall asleep the night before, because I am so excited! Why can't I be excited and still get sleep?

I go to work and try to act normal at home. We never tell the kids until we are leaving the house that morning. We pack what can't be prepacked that night after the kids are in bed. It can be very stressful, freaking out about all the packing to be done but not letting the kids know a thing. I like to do all the laundry and get the house cleaned up also. Can't stand coming back to a dirty house. My mom takes care of the cats so I make sure to tell her everything she needs to know before we go.
"Frying pans! Who knew, right?"

Bedtime ritual and then check the list!

The night before we leave for a Disney trip, I always say goodnight to my boys and we say "just think, tomorrow night at this time we will be at the Magic Kingdom!" It's become a ritual each time we go! Also the last thing I do before leaving for Disney is review my packing list one last time as there always seems to be something I forget! If we stay off property, I have an entirely separate list of items to pack vs. staying on property. When we return from our trip, I make sure to add any new items we found that we needed during that trip so that next time, I can pull out the "go to" list and it's all right there for me! OCD I know but it makes me feel better before we head out the door!
