I totally relate to this. If it weren't for Disney vacations and wanting my kids to stay in private school I'd quit in a heartbeat. I hate my job. I'm grateful that I have one when so many are looking and can't find one but I just hate it. I go through everyday biting my tongue.

What's a typical February suitcase going to have? Since it's too early to pack for real, thought it would be fun to pretend here! I mean....I'm just sitting here in Northeast PA waiting for the storm anyway, so I might as well imagine I'm packing for Florida! LOL
What part of NEPA? i grew up in in the Poconos, moved out to Colorado 3 years ago.
Love the comment that it could be cold at night in Disney, lows around 55. that'll be warm for me!!! hehe

We've never been that early in the year & we've never stayed at Pop so we're excited. I'm back in the triple digit wait but that's ok, we're still going to Disney!

It's the double digit dance with an added bonus









Not only we're at 99 days out but I just booked a 3 day stay at the Contemporary using the R.O discount. We'll spend the last two nights at Disney AND use ME to go to the airport which is AWESOME! And hey, I'm even saving on the taxi ride to the airport!

February's honestly not so bad. The lines usually aren't too long and the weather's pretty nice ...as long as you remember a jacket and pair of jeans, just in case. No one else in my family has ever stayed on Disney before so it's going to be fun watching their reactions to everything.


And don't give up, melissarose! Bad jobs are horrible but it makes the vacation all the more rewarding to get away from it.

What's the very first thing you do after checking-in? A stroll around the resort? Hop into a bus and off to the parks? Check out DTD? Lie down and sleep for an early start?
