    Congratulations Minnierocks to you and your family! :cheer2: You are so awesome to share this once in a lifetime trip on the Dis! :thumbsup2 I missed the segment on GMA and will wait to watch the video tonight at home where I have speakers--no sound at work. I can't wait to read all the wonderful details of your trip and hopefully see some of your pictures. :banana:

    Congratulations Minnierocks!!! I had my whole family come into the den to watch your video online. Thanks for sharing your experience, too. I feel like we experienced a little of it with you. It certainly made my eyes mist a little bit. We are all so happy for you!

    Wow! How exciting! I teared up too when I watched the clips. That must have been the most amazing experience. I can't wait to hear what you were thinking when you first saw all of the characters and cast members come out to greet you! :goofy: :tigger: :mickeyjum :donald: :dumbo:

    Entry #3

    WOW! We were leaving in the morning! It appeared to be really happening...and a part of me still didn't believe it ;)
    I made sure that we all went to bed early-it was going to be an early morning.
    I set the alarm for 4:15 AM and tried to sleep. I say "tried" because it really was pointless. I was way too excited to fall asleep! :rotfl2:
    I was imagining and speculating about what it was going to be like...what was going to happen and what surprises were in store for us!
    While I knew a few details, I really hadn't been told much. I had talked to my Disney contact on Friday and she had sounded really excited! She said that everyone couldn't wait for us to arrive and they were plannning some surprises for us! :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:
    Knowing how great Disney was...made me crazy wondering what it was going to be like! But, I tried to get some rest anyway-it was going to be busy, busy, busy. Time was ticking...the countdown was into hours at this point :hourglass and I was feeling like a 5 year old on Christmas Eve!

    :goodvibes The alarm goes off, but I have been awake for about a 1/2 hour...Time to get everyone moving. There stands DD at my door...wide awake and so excited! This is going to be one morning where NO ONE is going to complain about getting up! :Pinkbounc :bounce: :Pinkbounc :bounce:

    We head out the door AHEAD of schedule :rotfl: and get to the airport before morning rush hour traffic. :thumbsup2 Hey, I would rather be early, than rushing through...
    Well, now we just sit and wait for our flight...

    [​IMG]

    They call for our flight and here we go!!! :cool1:
    DH looks at me as we buckle into our seats and whispers...just think, we'll be having lunch at Disney World! :sunny:

    The flight was pretty uneventful...other than both kids being excited that the snacks and drinks were free!!! :rotfl:

    We touch down in Orlando and I look at DH and say..."OK, I think it's real!" :woohoo:

    Who did you fly with? and were you in coach? :rotfl:

    I was thinking maybe the first surprise would be first class seats. :goodvibes
