That's probably true. We've started getting travel insurance for everything for that reason.
We do too--it is the only sensible thing to do with an unpredictable life.

Anyway totally excited!
Our honeymoon dates are almost the same as yours, April 24 until May 3. The last day of our honeymoon (May 2) will be our first anniversary. So, our honeymoon will be almost a year late.

How (super) late is yours?

I never made a countdown calendar, and my DD made one just by writing out the numbers and crossing them off. But she got a little ahead, LOL. 15 days until we leave for FL, and 17 days until WDW! ACK!

Almost the same!

We're about 1.5 years out from the wedding date.

its kinda of an anniversary trip, our 3rd wedding anniversary is on march 14th but unable to travel at that time.
We'll be staying at POP! Century (first time at this resort)
7 day ticket - no hopper
and the regular dining plan for the first 5 nights (6th night is a room only res)

we are still debating on weather to rent a car or not. We've never used the magical express before, we always rented a car. I like to be on my own schedule and being able to leave from the park to the airport, but i don't want to spend the extra cash
I personally like to stay in the parks so we don't have to worry about "paying" to rent a car and dealing with driving and parking it. I would rather take the bus and not have to worry where I parked the car and having to walk miles to get to it. Most bus' drop you off near the front entrances. But again this is my opinion on rental cars.

Officially 4 weeks out today and for some reason, I have been worrying like crazy that my family will come down with the stomach bug either right before or during the trip. Ughhh. I know I have zero control over it happening or not, but it is constantly on my mind.

Sometimes I think because I have overplanned and counted down for this trip for so long (and probably won't be back for at least several years), I just think it's destined to happen. I made the mistake of reading trip reports of people who went in Feb and Mar and ended up sick.

Maybe I should stop planning anything and just not think about it until the day we leave. LOL

Got my Magical Express tags last week; and my Disney booklet today! It says that they'll give us the tickets at check-in. What happens if we do online check-in?

They will be added to your KTTW card or RFID bracelet or whatever they are using when we all get there. Unless you bought your tickets from an outside source you wont have a paper ticket that you hand in at the turnstiles.

OK, I am glad I'm not the only one because as soon as we hit the one month mark I immediately thought of this song.

So, DH isn't deploying after all. He may still volunteer for one before the year is up (he's in a unit that doesn't deploy, which is part of the reason it was weird that he got mobilization orders in the first place). Disney is safe though!

Online check-in still requires you to go to a desk and pick up a packet of stuff which will include your room key & tickets.

Touring plans has a policy that causes them to make each park the "best" park once a week. For this reason, sometimes their recommended park isn't actually the best overall, but the the only time it will be better than the rest of the week. They also say that having a good touring plan is 5 times more important than which park which day.
Other than that I have no idea, but I would pick one calendar and go with it.
