I hope everything goes ok! Don't stress too much. We'd been planning and saving for this trip for 3 years and in May....surprise open abdominal surgery! So it's been a long recovery to get back to my "Disney" shape. But I'm doing good. So my thoughts are with you and I'm sure it will all be fine

Our daughter does not know either. We are not telling her until we are leaving. Can you imagine a 4 year old knowing? Are we leaving yet, mommy? Are we leaving yet, mommy? That would be too much for us to handle for 54 days.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

We are getting FD and we are still bringing along (or buying once we get there) breakfast/snack items. I prefer a small snack/meal (bagel/toast with PB or oatmeal/nuts) in my room in the morning to taking the time to do a ts or cs breakfast.

My mom has a Kbar and coffee every morning at home and she likes to stick to that routine even when traveling.

As for snacks I have one or two favorites that are not Disney that I prefer to have available.

We will probably bring some stuff with us (bagels/kbars/chex mix/PB/nuts/Via/Splenda) then do a walmart run when we are out shopping on Sat for fresh stuff (dairy/water/fruit/ham).

This is not just a Disney thing but pretty much a choice I make when ever I travel. I find comfort in my usuals and it's often easier and cheaper to bring with than make do with something at the hotel.

OH and 79 days for me as well.

I do this as well. I just hate to take the time to go shopping as soon as I've arrived on vacation, so I always have snacks that I can make do for a few meals if I need to. I prefer to have a quick, simple breakfast in the room to save time and to get at least a healthy start to the day (unfortunately, it may go straight downhill from there) I have free dining this time, and for me, two counter service meals is a ton of food, so I will be trying to save some sort of leftover or dessert for breakfasts (LOL, THAT should be nice and healthy!)

Oh, and, 84 days for me (I arrive 3 days sooner but go to Universal first.)

We ship a box down UPS with stuff we want/need from here to the resort. Even though we have free dining, I like to have some things in the room to eat, snacks, breakfast items. We also just do carry-ons so we ship down toiletries and such.

Once with the first parent and again with the second parent?
WHen you are going to enter the line, ask the CM for a rider swap. They will (often) ask you which child is staying behind (to ensure you're using it for the right reason ) and then give you a pass that looks similar to the fast passes. One parent rides first, and then the other (with the pass) can go through the fastpass line with the older kids again. It is AWESOME! I don't think every ride has it, but honestly, we didn't find any problems getting them when needed. Good luck!

I am glad everything went well with your surgery, I hope you have a wonderful time.

We had a trip planned 2 years ago and the day we were leaving, DS was admitted to the hospital for abdominal issues, had his surgery a month later. So this is our make up trip. And he gets to eat WHATEVER he wants.

I'm sure packing the food items is the cheapest route. In case you are interested, though, check out GardenGrocer.com. You can order food online and have it delivered to your resort. They will hold it at the bell services (including keeping things cold for you) until you arrive back to your room. There is a delivery fee of $14, and items tend to be a little more expensive than the local grocery store (but not too high). However, the convenience is awesome. We've ordered two and a half cases of water to be delivered...couldn't pack that in our suitcases . We've used them two times now and have been happy both times.
(We didn't just order water...ordered lots of other snack and breakfast type foods, including fresh fruit, as well. No FD for us, either.)

Not me....I took my daughter out during PSA's last year. I didn't care. She only had to reschedule 1 test so it wasn't a big deal to the school. This year, she'll be in middle school and my son will still be in elementary school. I intend to contact both their teachers and principal when school starts. We can't wait to go either! We have 78 more days....and counting lol
When you have a spouse in law enforcement, you need to take advantage of any quality time you can get.
