Day by day we are getting closer to our cruise - I don't think I mentioned that while passing the time til December, DH and I decided to take the 5-night Canadian cruise on Sept 7th. We will departing from NYC on the Magic, going to Halifax and St. John. So my time has been spent on planning that cruise (and trying to keep the details of both trips straight).

Wow - we are at the 135 day mark - time is flying by. Not to much to update on - our main decision right now seems to be if we want to fly home Sunday night like planned or spend Sunday night and fly home on Christmas Eve. If we spend the night, we can't decide between staying in Miami, Ft Lauderdale or at Pop Century at WDW. DD wants to stay in Miami, DH and I are leaning towards Disney. The Magic Kingdom is open til 1:00am on the 23rd with Extra Magic hours, but it is 4 hour drive and I'm thinking it would be about 3pm til we arrive at MK (with getting off the ship, renting a car, driving to WDW, checking in and getting the bus). Not sure if it's worrth it

I have also been busy making my FE gifts - lots of red and black paint all over the place - DD and I are having a great time making them.

I cannot wait to hear all the details of your cruise! The PC is on my bucket list as well...was looking at the PC next spring but Galveston does not really do much for me.

We're planning on staying in Miami on the 23rd, and then taking Amtrak back to New Jersey. We thought about going to WDW, but it's just too much traveling, and it will be absolutely jammed. We've done the Christmas Eve/Christmas Day thing and promised ourselves never again! And we've held to that promise for 30 years, I don't think I'm going to break it now! We've always wanted to see Miami anyway!

My thoughts too, we did MK on Christmas Eve and it was a madhouse - I'm sure the day before won't be any better. For the time and cost to get there, it just doesn't seem like it is worth it.

Are you staying with your friends in Miami? We would like to see the best of the area in the short time we are there. I'm at a lost as to what area to stay in and what to see. DD wants the beach, DH and I want the sights. Any tips?? I was looking at the Hollywood area too, or even Ft. Lauderdale.

We took Amtrak's autotrain one year when my DD's were little. We enjoy it and it was nice to have our car with us. We are taking Amtrak to NYC for our cruise and are looking forward to relaxing and avoiding the hassles of driving/flying.

Ok, did I mention that United changed our flight once again. We are now leaving at 7:45am instead of 8:30am. Not a bad change, but it means that we now have to leave to home earlier and our layover is 45 minutes longer. I also found out the we do in fact have to change planes even though the flight number doesn't change. How frustrating.

I am looking for a hotel to stay at in PHL the night before our cruise. I checked trip advisor and can't seem to find one hotel that has positive comments. How can that be - PHL is major airport, how can all the hotels be bad?????

The airport isn't in the best of neighborhoods. We thought about going down the night before, but decided to stay here and leave in the wee hours of the morning. I still have to fight with United. We paid for extra legroom seats through to LA and right now there aren't any available on the SF to LA leg. I,m going to wait a whole, though, until I think that they've finally decided when and where the flight is going!
