There were lots of last minute things to take care of the night before the trip. Angel's uncle came over to pick up Cutie Pie the gerbil, and we doubted she would make it until we returned home. MAW had arranged for a limo to take us to the airport , which Angel was very excited about. The limo company called that night to confirm the arrangements. I'm glad they did, because the pick up time was 20 minutes earlier than the info the MAW coordinator sent, which gave me more reason to dread what else the MAW coordinator could have gotten wrong. Then the limo rep read our address to confirm, and it was the wrong town. It was her error though, not the coordinator's, and she had just said the destination city by mistake. We had wanted to get to bed really early, but that didn't happen. Tom & Angel managed to get to bed at a decent time though, and Angel slept well despite thinking that she was too excited to sleep at all. It took me much longer than I expected to get the rest of my things done (Tom had offered to stay up & help, but it was stuff I needed to do myself), and I finally got to bed around 2 am. The alarm was set for 6:30 am. Angel ready to go: I discovered that morning that my MAW shirt was the wrong size (and of course too small instead of too big). I should have thought to verify the sizes when the wish granter gave them to us. I went ahead and wore it anyway. The limo was right on time. For some reason, Angel loves to ride backwards when given the chance, like on the monorail & peoplemover, and she was happy to get to ride backwards in the limo for a whole hour. We had to laugh that the limo was so old that it had a video player in it. I usually do online check in the day before a flight, but the MAW paper work said to check in at the airport, so I figured there must be a reason. Turns out there wasn't, and the check in kiosk was a little temperamental, which really made me panic because it seemed like it wasn't going to accept the expense card MAW gave us when I was paying the luggage fee, but it finally went through. I understand why MAW arranged for us to be at the airport so early, but our airport is very small and doesn't really require that much time for check in & security, so we had quite awhile to wait. Being so small, it also doesn't have anything to do while waiting. On our previous trips to wdw, we usually had a direct flight to Orlando, and it was obvious that a majority of the people on the flight were also on their way to wdw. This time we had a layover in Chicago, and it felt odd not having that atmosphere of excitement that a bunch of families with little ones headed to wdw seemed to create. Our wait time went by much quicker than we expected, and it was soon time to board the plane.
