3 days ago, I was at a 3 month countdown.

Today, I'm at 2 months, 4 weeks and 1 day.








Somehow....3 months seems a lot closer than 2 months, 4 weeks and 1 day!

Lol...it's just wordier

I'm loving these countdowns. In three more days we'll be in the 60s!!!
That seems crazy...but oh so exciting. I want to plan some more things but we are pretty much done.

I'm at 3 months today. Woohoo!
I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow when I can say 2 months .....

My next big countdown hurdle is 75 days as that is when I can book my cruise excursion and hopefully a Palo brunch. Trying not to get my hopes up with the brunch though as all DCL repeat cruisers may have booked it out by now.

checked into our Cruise yesterday and booked our excursions, haven't booked any for Cabo San Lucas nothing appeals. It's all feeling a bit more real
It was strange being able to pick the earliest port time and choosing not to but I figure 14 days should be enough time to explore the ship. I don't want to leave the VGC before I have to not even for a Disney ship

3 months today for us as well.
Currently pondering whether we should stay at a night at the LEGOLAND hotel, as the theming looks so cool. I thought our kids aged 11 & 8 would be too old for LEGOLAND this time around, but they really want to go again ( we went 4 yrs ago, and I really did not like the park but the kids loved it )

Looks like it could be fun.
I uhmmed and aahhed for ages over visiting Legoland Florida, but think I have decided not to. I feel a bit bad as I know my son would LOVE it. I just wish it was easier to get to from WDW.

I just worked out that my cruise excursion window will open while I'm in a very important meeting at work. I pretty much will need to be on my death bed to get out of this meeting and I won't get home until at least 4 hours after bookings have opened up. If I want to stand even a slight chance of getting a Palo reservation and an early check in time, I need to hand control of the bookings over to my DH. My husband is by no means a stupid man, but I'm suddenly feeling very anxious

I'm sure it will work out.

We're staying there for 2 nights on our way from San Diego to Anaheim. We've booked a premium pirate room. This is the one aspect of the holiday that we've kept secret from the kids. All three love Lego, but my 4.5 ds is Lego mad.

Thanks Wamumof4 and PIO. I think I might need that pixiedust.
I've never been good at handing over the reigns of control when it comes to my families holidays. My husband prefers to be on a 'need to know only' basis and will at best sign forms if I put them in front of him.

I know he'll be fine, but it would help if I knew what to expect when my bookings open up so I can explain to him what to do and where to go. At present the website won't let me past the main reservation page.

Wamumof4, do you know if it's possible to pick a check-in time without having to do too much more of the online check-in process? Or is picking the check-in time the last thing you do?
