We leave 0630 Sunday morning for our long-awaited Walt Disney World vacation. It has been 4 1/2 years since our last trip. This is our first time in a deluxe (Look out Wilderness Lodge, the Maine-iacs will be there soon!). We have Courtyard w/ Bunks booked (and free food, woohoo). I'm torn about room requests. We are just so excited just to be in a deluxe that I'm not sure we care about anything in particular, especially since the resorts are all non-smoking (used to request a smoking room for DSO). How is the laundry room? Is it more crowded in the mornings or in the evenings? I'm thinking I'll do laundry after 9pm on the Wednesday of our trip. Does it close at some magic hour or is it open 24/7? Does the Mercantile sell hats? I have a great bucket hat that DSO HATES . Well, I hate water on my glasses (if it rains), so I promised I'd only wear my old one if I can't get another one at our resort. Any idea if they carry hats, specifically bucket hats? Will it be more effiecient to take a taxi to DisneyQuest for its opening time than trying to take the bus to DTD and then walking from Marketplace to Westside? I'm thinking it would be. Will the lobby concierge (guest services) call a cab for me if I ask? Things were looking pretty good, only have to get thru today at work, most of the packing is done, one dog is going to the puppy spa tomorrow, the other is going to my sister tonite. Then we hit a problem. My sister had a seizure this morning (first in over a year). She will probably be home from the hospital later today after they get the results of bloodwork. This comes 10 days after Carl's grandfather (his dad's dad) died. I'm sure we will forget something...but figure we will either live w/o it or buy it there (and pay twice as much ) Thanks for letting me vent my last minute craziness. I love you guys. If it wasn't for all the great info here I'd have no idea which end was up this trip. Since we started planning it last Christmas we have had 3 deaths in the family, Carl has advanced two ranks in Boy Scouts and my sister has had the one seizure. It has been a long year, but Disney has been the light at the end of the tunnel for all of us.
