    Looks like lots of Jersey peeps checking in lately. I'm from Central Jersey, exit 127 off PKY. I was originally planning on going 11/7-11/13 but just changed to 11/3-11/9. I guess it's called Jersey Week for a reason.

    That's great! Sounds like it will be a lot of fun! I don't fly, so we drive! It's fun as long as my DD doesn't start asking "are we there yet?!" Or say "I want to get out of the car!" When we just get into Washington!!!!!! LOL

    Just switched our split stay first portion (11/29 - 12/1) from AoA to Residence Inn Sea World and added Dining with Shamu. I'm really looking forward to SW this trip!

    Now have to learn more about SW ... Haven't been in six years.

    I promise, promise, promise I will update the first post later this evening or tomorrow....after Quinn's birthday party last night, my back is screaming and I'm trying to rest and not stress (which makes it worse).

    We are actually taking the AutoTrain. So....only two hours of driving. :goodvibes

    We're very excited and I think our five-year-old will just love it!! We normally fly (out of Philly), but flights alone would have costs us about $1300. Add to that $300 (approximately) for a rental car and that was waaay out of budget compared to the $1,050 I spent for the AutoTrain. Plus, I had a $200 credit with Amtrak because Kyle & I were stuck on a DC-bound train for 4.5 hours last June.

    We love the AutoTrain!! That's the only way we want to go now. So much fun! We never said that about driving or flying.

    Is this your first AT to FL?

    Ok, so this may be off topic but how does auto train work? Do you purchase the bedroom? Is it really better than flying? I'm curious.

    Yes; it is our first AT to FL.

    We did not purchase the bedroom. My hubby is six and a half feet tall and could not possibly fit comfortably. :) We decided coach seats would be perfectly fine. We do not go to the parks on our travel day anyway (always DTD and relax at the resort for our first day of vacation) and we can all sleep through everything. lol

    As for is it better than flying? Hmmm...probably not so much as we are leaving a day before we normally would. It's just $1,000 less expensive than flying this trip and a new adventure!!!
