You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

Everyone have great trips this week!!!

I am home. We had a good time. Didnt do as much as I thought we would, because of my cold and lack of energy. We seemed to do our favorites over and over, instead of doing other attractions. I will do a review on the other thread later. We definitely learned some things about how we want to do the next trip.

Are you guys flying? When are you flying back are rates really high? We plan on going the first Saturday in Jan '14.... It never occurred to me to look at airline prices.

We made it here and settled into our house nicely. A tip when punching in an address on your gps if you are staying in davenport use that as your city not orlando lol, or you might be driving longer than anticipated.
For any canadians coming down it is very chilly, not the hot weather we were expecting but it is expected to warm up soon.
Shopping at the outlet malls and flea market today.
Side note we picked up a 3 foot tree at walmart for 20 dollars.
Well have a great day whereever you may be!

After spending 16 straight hours at MK yesterday, we are taking a rest day today to do some laundry and recharge (been in FL since Tuesday). As a first-timer, I am absolutely mesmerized with everything I saw at MK! It warmed my cold, cold heart to see all the kids that got to meet the characters in the flesh. I couldn't stop being happy for them all. And my two highlights from yesterday were: Celebrate the Magic (loved it better than the parades or the fireworks) and the meet & greets. I never would have guessed that I had that in me! And special to all the CMs. Pleasant, helpful and downright happy folks! Made the experience ten times better.

And one thing I learned about myself: I dislike roller coaster rides!!! Hahaha!

Yes, we are flying. No, we got good deals on our flights. I booked in sept, but rates dropped in November. I got credit bc we are flying SW.

I didn't sleep well bc I dreamed of packing all night. Lol

Maybe it's a thing with being sick during your trip, because I found myself doing the same thing. I did a few new things, but mostly my favorites over and over. Maybe because they are more comforting, which is nice when you don't feel well?

We're driving actually. It's 2020 miles each way, about a 32 hour drive, can't wait! We've done the drive about 5 or so times before and consider it to be part of the fun of the vacation. We only fly when we have a short amount of time to go, like our May trip for Star Wars Weekend that we only had 4 days. We're planning to leave around 6am on Dec 26th and we're going to try to make it most of the way through Illinois before we stop.
