Six weeks to go tomorrow!

The wife and I got a catalog from Oriental Trading last night and found some cute things to get for the girls but instead of ordering them online we're going to hit up Party City. Similar prices and don't have to pay shipping. They've got some face jewels, lanyards, bracelets and various other cheap trinket deals to keep the kids occupied for far less than what we would spend on stuff at the parks. Tuesday night we'll be making the run to Party City while the kids are with a sitter to hunt and gather.

Just happy that its' getting closer. I think the next few weeks should fly by.

42 Days to go

I thought I had posted our trip on this thread but don't see me listed. We will be there beginning on November 15th - 25th at Pop Century and then Cruising the Dream from 25-29th! MVMCP on the 16th. Can't wait to read through the whole thread and see who is going to be there! We will be party of 13 with 10 days worth of ADR. So excited I can't hardly take it anymore

We are doing the same! We were thinking of doing little goody bags for the ride! I think it would be nice for them to have some new things to keep them occupied on the way down, ESP. since we have a long ride!

How long is your ride? Ours should clock in around 20 hours.

Oh I'm happy to know we aren't the only ones driving! Well it's about an 18 hr. ride. With two kids now, we are stopping in SC on the way down over night to break it up a little. We bought a dual screen DVD player to keep the little ones happy ... Hope it works! Is this your first time driving with your little ones?

DVD players make things a lot easier. Our girls have traveled quite a bit in both car and plane so long trips are nothing new to them. Our last car had the dual DVD players in them and we hated to give it up for our new car. Our solution was to get iPads and mount those to the headrests during road trips. The girls love that even more I think because they each can have their own movie and they don't have to ask us to switch the movie out when it's done. We're doing the trip straight through although we'll likely take our time so we don't arrive too early. We're leaving Texas around 3pm so we could likely hit AoA at around noon. We're planning on having a resort day that day so hanging out at the pools (weather permitting) will be on the agenda. We'd like to be able to check in and drop our stuff at the room before hitting the pool though.

I forgot one other piece of Disney-ish news. We signed up for the Disney Movie Club last night too. We picked up 8 Blu-Ray movies for $20. Can't beat that with a stick!

That sounds great! I'm sure they will be entertained and enjoy the ride even more! Sounds like a nice relaxing first day! I can't wait to be in the car! I just want to know I'm on the way!!!!!

I'm very excited. I rebooked my rental car today because I was able to get a 10 day rental over Thanksgiving for a minivan with unlimited miles for under $350 (including taxes).

wow, stay away for a few days and the thread explodes!

congrats to all with their MM. We booked through a TA, so should have our in a couple of weeks.

Had a kind of rough day. My mom, who is going on the trip got laid off today. Its a weird thought, my mom has *always* worked. She says its a blessing in disguise as now she can do WDW then the following week go to my sisters for Thanksgiving. I guess its all about perspective.

I wish this time would go faster!! Only 34 more days~~

Good Morning everyone!!

Its a bit chilly here this morning for a change, its been quite warm. But I think we will be getting some colder weather in next few days, at least that's what they say. I'm ready I love the cooler temperatures.

We are down to 39 days! I am so excited. I can't wait till we all arrive and I can spill our 1st secret with the girls that we are in one of the Royal Princess Rooms!! They are going to be so excited!! When they enter will be surprises for them both from Disney florist for Sarah's graduation and Rachel's sweet 16.

Then a day or so later come the next surprise, a family carraige ride around POR. Never done this and thought it would be a nice treat for them and us.

My daughter is like jumping out of her skin. I talked to her last night- she lives in Pensacola as she goes to school there and will be driving down with her dad as I didn't want her to make that 7+ hour drive by herself. She is so thrilled to be going. For us it has been since 2004 since our last trip to Disney way toooo long!! So many changes and we are set to do some real cool things too.

Come on November!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
