Late to the party! DH, DD9, DD6 and I are heading to AKL for 7 days on Sunday!! (Assuming we can fly out, snowpacolypse 2.0 heading our way).

We are surprising the girls, and are planning on waiting until we get to the airport before we either tell them or let them figure it out. SO EXCITED!!

We did this for our youngest daughter in 2010. the look of shock on her face and the endless amount of "happy" tears was priceless!!! It was so worth keeping the secret.

Have a great family vacation

Can't wait to try out the Worcester airport!!
Just an FYI, if everyone is checked in early, they loaded the plan in Worcester early and left. Loved the flight went smooth and quickly both my Worcester departures. Then I don't know if I mentioned but my flight home I left at 12:30pm and arrived in Worcester at 2:38pm. There are not many fun places you can go driving for 2 hours. Wishing you the same!

Ya I'm not liking this winter weather much at all. What happened to the hopeful winter we had a few years ago with snow the end of October and nothing the rest of the winter and mild temps?
Wishing you the fun weather I had last week. Make sure to report back.

Oh ya! Seems life other than Disney stops and you just wish away the days. Unfortunately as slow as those days leading to go, it's a double time passing once you are there. Don't blink.

The best thing I could have done for the week was rent a car! I loved having the freedom to park hop quickly and easily, and when I went to WWoHP I was able to leave when I was done! which was much earlier than expected. I took the buses my first day to MK and was so glad to not do that again!
I found the buses this last trip the most crowded I've ever encountered.(and worse than my ride line experiences) I wonder if there were less buses because of the time of year. Even the boats to DTD seemed to take forever. Made it really hard if you had an ADR or appointment. Being directionaly challenged, renting a car would not have saved me time. Glad it worked out for you.

We are neighbors! I'm a teacher out of school today, watching the snow and dreaming I was already at Disney! I would think by Sunday the airport will be fine! Have a great trip - hope the surprise goes well!

1 more day of work and school then it is off to the land of magic. Not certain I will have any focus tomorrow. Any advice on getting my 10 yo through the next 36 hrs before we hop the plane. He is mega excited.

Good to know! Although 50 degrees is like a heat wave for those of us from the North East right now.

I keep getting weird looks. I am from SoCal, so the weather is *cold* to me.

Officially nervous and paranoid about this coming weekend. We have another snow day today. Ugh. Up to 5, which to some isn't much I know, but as a teacher knowing that state testing is coming up in 5 weeks it puts us behind.

We are expecting more snow Saturday into Sunday. Hopefully it will be a small amount in my area (news channels are predicting 2-4, but Weather Channel is saying 1-2). The one flight that goes out of the airport we are flying out of is cancelled today. Fingers crossed that we can get out on Sunday. Not sure what will happen if we can't!

Positive thoughts needed!

Oh I totally hear you!!!!
DH got a stomach bug and he was sick all day yesterday. It's not pretty around here at all.

I'm sending warm positive thoughts for Sundays flights.
Our town didn't have school today either.
From the sounds of the forecast you might have a better chance from where you are flying instead of Boston. I could be wrong.
Fingers crossed.
