9 days of work left! Leaving on Feb 3 on Amtrak and will be down and checking in on Feb 4. Here's hoping to clear weather for the train! Two weeks of peace and happiness away from cold weather and a stressful job - already starting to feel better than I have in months! See ya soon!

Only 14 days to go! Yay! I've packed 3 suitcases already. And my trip today to Target's annual toy clearance helped me get the last of our "Mickey presents" Hopefully these last two weeks won't go by too slowly!

So just what do they use the giant custom mickey head for? Do they get posted somewhere?

That's one piece of advice you don't have to tell me twice! I always over pack. That's part of the reason why driving is almost always our preferred method of transportation.

Two weeks from today we are flying to Orlando!

Just DW and I (kids are grown) for 9 days/8 nights. Although we are staying off-site, we will be visiting our favorite on-site resort (POR) to walk around, see Yehaw Bob, and ride the boat to DTD. Will get 5 day park tickets, spend a couple days at the resort, one morning looking at houses and that evening volunteering at GKTW!

It snowed 5 inches here last night, so we are ready to go!

OMG! I am so happy to be a part of this group again this year! I just booked my trip, it's a short one with friends, but I got more Disney time than I expected to, so I am thrilled!!

My trip with my boyfriend last February was the best vacation of my life, so I am really happy to being going back, DESPITE all the angry comments I've been reading on the boards.

I will be checking into the Cabins at Fort Wilderness on February 5! 3 nights at Disney is much better than none, so I'm thrilled :D

You print them out and laminate them and attach them to your bag so other disers can spot you

We are planning on going right to MK. And leaving late afternoon to crash. That helps us get up early for rope drop the next day.

Brilliant! I was unable to get a red eye flight so we will just have to suck it up, explore and maybe that will be enough to tire us out. Although, considering how early we will have to be to get to the airport I doubt DDs will even be able to sleep (they were horrible on Christmas eve...lol). Maybe they will just crash and burn when we get there?


Forum wisdom question: when do you start your packing and how?

CA here. I normally go to MK the first night. Normally between a "day" of flying and hitting a park I am tired enough to go to bed at a decent time in FL.



DBF and I did the Tinkerbell 1/2 today, it was his first. So proud of him. Plus that means the next exciting plan is our WDW trip in just 15 days!!!

Must nap now. :D

That's my plan too! I land at 5:30 and plan to pick up my rental car, make a quick stop for snacks and water, stop at the hotel for quick check in, then off the MK for rope drop! I'm planning on going back to the room a few hours be forint heading back for MSEP, fireworks, a late BOG dinner and then EMH! I'm so excited!!!!
