YES -- less than one year!!! My son asks almost every day how much money is in our savings account for our vacation. Makes me laugh -- it's sort of the financial version of "are we there yet?"

How is everyone?

Thought I'd check in to see how y'all are doing? We submitted our passport applications today. Yet another step closer!!!

Back to reality though -- I've got to go help clean things out of the garage for our yard sale.

Have a great day!!

I just have to put this out of my mind. It's SOOOO far away!!

I DID find some really cute pirate above the knee socks for pirate night. I'll wait until Halloween is over for some other pirate-y items.......

I did it!
I booked the land portion of my trip. At first I was looking at two rooms at AoA, but ended up scoring a 2 Bedroom at VWL for way less money. With two rooms to book and the things I need AND factoring in the patience level of various family members, I couldn't wait around.

Congratulations!!! That's a great detail to have off your mind!!! We are closing in on the 300 day mark (that's still too far away!)...it's still a good time for a little happy dance with you.

Ha! All I do is a happy dance when I start thinking of this. This trip means so much to DH and I . DH and I are former CM's and between the two of us, (mind you WDW circa 2001) we had done everything.
My parents, between visting me for 8 years and prior family vacations, could find their way around blind folded.
My DD has had a quick weekend... and this is a first for my DS.

This trip is HUGE. It's a surprise for the kids and a thank you to my parents and with them getting older and trips I know that are coming in the future, this may be the only trip they have with the grandkids.

I am not planning the perfect must see everything do everything eat everything tra lalalalala trip. I just want them there... in a place that means so much to my husband and I... and a damn Mickey ice cream because I MISS those little suckers.

Oh, I LOVE this. We surprised my son twice for trips to Disney -- I probably had as much fun planning the surprise as I did planning the trip (and I really love the joy of having the grandparents along). How are you going to break the news?

We told my parents last August. We took them out for their Anniversary and had a friend send up a couple of the classic ears with their names on them. Then I got a bottle of their favorite Port and made up a Pirate themed card telling them we were kidnapping them.
The look of "Whaaaaa???" on their faces was hysterical because I think they though we were going to drop a "We're pregnant" bomb on them. We had to let them know that far in advance because I booked the cruise the first day it was out... and they have a habit of planning these elaborate trips for themselves...

The kids... hmm... we haven't told them yet. I don't think it will be until the last day of school for that... and then were won't tell them that were are also cruising.

Ha. THAT will be something.

What about you? Is this a surprise trip?

No....no surprises for us this trip. It's been fun doing the planning together with my son. He's in 6th grade and I'm teaching him how to enjoy being a Disney-planner!! We search you tube together every once in a while to find a video about Disney Cruises. Plus, he's learning what it takes to save for a vacation! I'm glad to be able to talk with the family, but the surprises were so magical!

I was going to wait for the New Year before I stopped lurking and started posting on this thread, but I just couldn't wait. DW41, DD12, and I (DH48)will be on the 7/28 cruise and will be traveling with our good friends DW42, DH48, and DS7. DD11 made a few good friends from a DC meets thread last year and helped make our cruise a treat for all. So if anyone has a DD11-13 at the time of the cruise that would like to exchange emails with her, PM me and we can make it happen.

Everyone else, I hope this meet livens up a bit as we get ready to go because with as much time as I spend on Disboards, it is great to get a chance to meet a few of you in person. Thank you Plaid Sheep for getting this thread started.
