Waiting for school to end and Disney to start is a real pain. But that only leaves more time for planning/watching the planning video/packing! Am I the only one who loves the suspense and fun of the whole preparation process almost as much as the actual trip?

So yesterday at Target I found a Disney Parks BluRay. It's almost 3 hours long. I rejoiced in the aisle like a school girl when I found it. That should give me a Disney fix when I need it for the next 131 days!

I definitely enjoy the planning and anticipation almost as much as the trip!!! You should have seen DS(fightinillini229) and me in the Disney store last week, we were like kids in a candy store!

Hey, Fightinillini229, shouldn't you be studying not looking up pictures of dole whips? Just kidding! Have a great day!

Bought that at Sam's Club, and put it on my Classic ipod. On the odd Saturday when we are all home, I just play it in the background.

What I can't take is the 2012 Disney DVD. It starts out with something like "Because you know that there are only so many magical moments left." or something like that. No fair pulling on our daughter-about-to go-to college heartstrings!

Dole Whips AND Carousel of Progress? Sounds like parenting done right to me!

I HATE that line. It makes me feel like my parents are on the brink of death.

As of this moment, we have 8PM dinner at the GF, followed by our first ever attempt at evening EMH at MK on the 5th. We could maybe do a pre-dinner cocktail that night if that works for everyone?

I love this pic! Thanks for sharing. We are also counting the days, but so many exciting things are happening between now and then. We are trying to savor this time, too!

I LOVE the anticipation part! It will be here before you know it. Meantime, too much excitement to miss!

UGH! I have been thinking of it terms of my kids, but now I will think of my grandparents (who are gone now, but always took my siblings and me to WDW) and my parents, too. Waaa! This ad is so manipulative!

We arrive on the fifth and have dinner at Cali Grill so a pre-dinner cocktail sounds great to me. I don't mine being socially lubricated for my monorail trip.

That ad is VERY manipulative. I feel like I need to take my parents on as many trips as possible.

DS and I would be up for that! DD and DH will be at Universal that day so we will just be hanging out waiting to go pick them up and start our REAL vacation!

Tambu-ing it on the 5th!

As we get closer, let's compare dinner ressies and see when is the latest in the afternoon/earliest in the evening we can meet.

Now, the tough part.... What will I have? Cause if I have a Lapu Lapu at 6ish, I might never make it to my ressie. Maybe something light...Something that scratches my itch...

Is is one of the Travel Channel specials? I'm totally interested. I need a Disney "fix" now and then.

I think we should be available from around 5:30-7:30. We have to head out to dinner by 7:30. And still waiting for my coconuts...
