Joining in--I lurked through the last half of your PTR, but never commented. Great picture of you and your guys. I can't believe D is ready for kindergarten!

Yay for getting an early start to your travels! Can't wait to hear more!

So exciting to read about your trip getting underway! And I think it's always awesome when you get a bonus day or time at Disney!

Looking forward to more!
Yikes. . .that's a long drive!! It took us about 12 hours to get home from the cruise because of construction/traffic, and I thought that was a yucky car ride!! But the excitement of getting to Disney may make your ride seem shorter!! Thanks for reading!

We were so excited to finally be on the road to WDW! 454 days of planning made it seem like we had been waiting a LONNNNNG time! I didn't know how D would do on the trip since he usually sleeps throughout the night the other way, and since he still takes a nap in the afternoon. He was definitely a CHAMP! About an hour into the trip, he decided he needed a nap. Here's what I saw in the backseat:



We made it to Chick-Fil-A somewhere in Georgia for dinner about 5:30 pm. Thats our go-to travel restaurantor actually, our go-to restaurant!

Heres D, raring to go at Chick-Fil-A:



After dinner, we had to check out the playground:



After about 10 minutes of playtime, we got back in the car, stopped for gas, and headed out!

We made good time, and after watching several Thomas movies on the iPad, we arrived at Downtown Disney at Doubletree! Time to make that adventure continue!!

Yep!! We have two of those from a set of sheets we used to have that matched. One of them has to stay clean at all times so he can use it!

Cute, cute little man asleep in the car

A little playtime before getting back in the car sounds like a great idea!

That's such a cute picture of your DS out like a light in the back of the car. I love that pillow case - so much so that I want one!

Yeah for arriving to DTD!

Aww, thanks!! I can never convince him to put the pillow against the window and sleep, but oh well!! Those pillow cases came from the Disney Store! I must admit, sometimes, I use one too!
