googlemaps says we have a 451 mile trip (or 7hrs 41 mins). With a few reststops to fuel up and to grab lunch, we're probably looking at 8.5-9 hours. Of course I want to leave as early as possible in the morning. DBF on the other hand doesn't want to budge below 8 a.m.
We'll be driving from Alabama. It's about a 10 or 11 hour drive for us. We leave around 4am and between losing an hour and stops we should get there around 4pm or so. We will check in, relax, and go to Ohana for dinner that night!

Yeah, I've got to say the sleeves are a tad long on me and as tall as I am, I can only imagine how long they must be on someone of average height!

As for feeling like you want them back, well, all I have to say is this whole roll call is full of enablers who want nothing more than to see you send MORE money Disney's way

7 weeks from today!!!

For those that were asking about driving, I'm jealous of all of you! The two times I personally drove (and 2 times I rode with my parents as a kid) took over 16 hours. And I drove straight thru, only stopping for gas, bathroom and food (which I ate while driving). I actually love driving, and did a 5000 mile round trip drive from MD to UT last October for a vacation, but I'm glad I'm flying this time as it gives me more WDW time!

True, you would think we were all plants from Disney trying to drive up the almighty dollar.

Hmm, now wouldn't that be a wise business strategy? At the very least, we should all get discounts from the Mouse!

I might still be trying to make WL work.

Still not enough.
True on both counts!! I am also obsessed with 31 and Vera, so I have bought a bunch of bags in the last couple months that I really wish I hadn't.

Have you checked out All For Color?? I usually use Vera for my park bag but I just bought one of these bags and they are a great price!!

We're driving down. We start out just NW of Atlanta and yes we could do the drive in one but 8-9hrs is laborious! So, we are heading out Thursday afternoon at about 3.30pm and driving to just over the Florida border ... I forget where, hold on .... ok, my ressie says Lake City Florida @ Fairfield Inn .... then we set off in the morning to get to Port Orleans Riverside hopefully by mid-day. That way we figured we'd be fresh for our arrival

First of all, ahhhhhh!!! December will be here before we know it! Second, I dl an app for my Android that has an itinerary and I'm organizing my trip through that so I don't have to carry around my huge binder. Thought maybe it would be more convenient if ur interested.

Us too! i'm hoping that will be our ten day trip that I dream of. I worked out that if we got a 2-bed villa it would only be a couple of hundred more than booking two POR RGR rooms. If I was doing my math right ....

OOOHHHHH I TOTALLY heard that!!!!!!

do it, do it, do it... I'm telling you, you WILL NOT regret your decision!
- You will sleep better at night.
- You will look happier and therefore BE happier
- You will not look longingly at the WL when you pass it and wonder "what could've been" (insert Tiffany song here)

just saying

you should do it

you can totally make it work

we'll budget together

(panting)
