We always used to do that. But, several times, we've been stuck in traffic near the Tappen Zee for hours on end. So, we now take the Mass Pike and avoid NJ. It's more miles but often faster and always less frustrating.

sorry for the confusion, what I left out is my friend is being brought to the POR in a car driven by her friend that isn't staying at POR or going into WDW. So does the driver of the car have to have a ticket to the parks to be able to drive my friend to POR?

Thank you, just wanted to make sure they didn't have to have registration info or anything.

1 month, 1 week, 1 day........ ugh, this is slow torture!

I had a moment of insanity where I tried to talk to DH about our plans yesterday - dining, hotel, etc. It's like he suddenly has narcolepsy whenever I talk about Disney, he can't even manage to keep his eyes open. I told him it bothers me that I can't even talk about it and he just laughed and said I can talk about it all I want (he just doesn't listen). SO annoying.
I guess this is payback for all my years of refusing to have any interest whatsoever in riding, talking about, or looking at his motorcycles, lol.

Luckily I have somehow managed to work the kids into a Disney frenzy with all my talking about it...... and they don't even have any idea we're going, lol! At least once a day tho one of them mentions wanting to go. Jeez, at least I'll have the two of them to talk about things with once I tell them.

It's not scary per say.... A bit thrilling....and you don't necessarily know when the drop is coming...but at that point you're already strapped in and you can't go anywhere. My DH hates it, but he had some trouble with his seat belt the first time he rode it.

I've heard that sometimes they ask to see ID, but none of the resorts are inside the gates of any of the parks, so park admission is irrelevant. I doubt they'll run into any problems.

Finally managed to get My Disney Experience to let me do on-line check-in and correct its copy of my ADRs. Boy, I hate that interface. Hope somebody got in trouble for unleashing on the public!

PIF, checked-in, ADRs complete and verified. I think I'm ready!

51 days to go!

Surprises are so exciting!! We surprised our boys for their b-day one year. It was awesome!!

When are you telling them?

Same here. He just nods politely and gets a vacant look. Even the kids are telling me to stop talking about it!

That's ok - when we are all there and having a great time, we will know who should get the credit
