First, big news. Guess who is flying FIRST CLASS both ways? If you guessed Mark and I, you would be right. Have I ever told you that I have the BEST boss on the planet. At his age, his travel is a lot less (he's 86 and will be 87 in January) and he has all these miles that will end up going to waste. He said let me see if I can upgrade you and Mark as a little something special for all you've been dealing with on your trip out to Orlando. He called today and they said they could do it and asked if he wanted to upgrade us on the return and he said yes. So we are flying FIRST CLASS ladies and gentleman.
on the upgrade to First Class!!! What a great boss you have, and you guys deserve every bit of it after what you have been dealing with lately!!! Now I'm sending a little that you will also get a room upgrade, or at least the perfect location, when you arrive!!!

Not sure if that is for all the crap you women think you have to do to yourselves before you can go on a trip, or the fact you have a 4:30AM flight to make............

So excited you are leaving so soon!!! Wish I could be there to join you.........

Thanks, Tim. I appreciate it knowing how busy you are.

I hope the major headliners are slow...it will give us more "relaxation" time.

Thanks, Marv. I don't need a room upgrade (although a one-bedroom villa would be lovely at OKW), but I really am hoping for that nice view for Mark especially.

Not sure if that is for all the crap you women think you have to do to yourselves before you can go on a trip, or the fact you have a 4:30AM flight to make............

I do all that crap because it is something that is JUST FOR ME! The flight is actually at 6:41, but we have to leave for the airport at 4:30 a.m.

So excited you are leaving so soon!!! Wish I could be there to join you.........
One of these days we will meet.

Hours are being counted until I get out of this office and until we are on that plane. Let's see if I do this right....22-1/2 hours until I'm out of the office and 40-1/2 hours until our flight.

Less than 48 hours now.....

Pedicure and nails are done, hair cut and color are tonight and finish packing tomorrow night (or if the Bears are getting blown out by the Packers tonight I'll pack tonight).

So in less than 48 hours we will be on a 6:41 a.m. FIRST CLASS flight to Orlando.

I left you with our day on Sunday at the parks, so let's recap a couple of more days.

Monday, September 16 --

We will be headed here:



I'm sure we will go here first:



so that Mark can ride first thing (I don't do it anymore!).

We'll then head to the Safari where I'm sure we'll see these guys:





This morning I was finally able to secure an ADR for Tusker House. I've heard so many good things about it that I really wanted to give it a try. So we will have a late breakfast there at 10:30 a.m.

We'll also want to do Dinosaur (well, probably me alone), It's Tough To Be a Bug, Rafiki's Planet, the trails, Festival of the Lion King, Camp Mickey and Minnie and I definitely have to stop to see my favorite pal:



We also want to stop at the Dawa Bar so I can have another of those scrumptious Strawberry Pina Coladas I had when I went with the girls, and Mark wants to try an African beer.

From there, we will be heading here:



We'll go and see if there are any Fastpasses for Soarin' available. We'll hit a few things in Future World before we have dinner here:



Depending on how tired we are, we might stroll over to WS to hit a few countries before we call it a night.

Tuesday, September 18 --

We are headed back here:

(minus Andy until December)

We plan on spending the entire day and early evening at Epcot. We'll go here first:



Then it will be breakfast at Sunshine Seasons and just catching and doing everything we can at Epcot this will be our last day here.

We also have an ADR for lunch at 1:10 p.m. at Rose & Crown, but we may cancel it and just eat at different counter services in WS.

We will leave around 6:30 p.m. and go over to the Studios to see Fantasmic which we have NOT seen since 2008 (this is, unless Mark is enjoying his time at Epcot and doesn't want to leave).


and then have breakfast at Sunshine Seasons.

Yay, it's almost time! I love the last couple of days before a Disney trip, when you have to run around and do all those last minute things like get your hair cut and nails done and all that, so much fun! All of your plans sound great, your trip is going to be amazing!!

Your plan sounds great! I'm sure you guys will have a blast! Now you just have to get thru tomorrow, which I know from experience, will probably drag on slowly If I don't talk to you before you leave, have fun!

Kathy,

Here's hoping that you get to do everything on your to do list and more, that you get to meet and greet every character on your wish list and more and that you get to eat every treat on your menu lists and more and when you are all finished, that you still have time to relax by the pool.

Say hello to Pooh for us all.
