I knew that was Cinderella's coach at MNSSHP!
Hehehe. Is it too early to go to bed?
Oh, LL have a wonderful, fabulous, fantastic, magical vacation full of good friends, family, food and celebration.
I think I have finished everything that I need to do. I made a last minute stop at Walmart to buy some cheap-o ponchos, socks, a mini umbrella and another set of inserts for my Crocs. I am all packed except for my toothbrush, hairbrush and comb.
I really feel like I am forgetting something but I am sure I am fine. Marc thinks the fact that I am bringing three bags is ridiculous. PFFFT. I haven't stuffed any of the three bags to the brim, I have room for souvenirs, so there.
I haven't heard from Jen since she has hit the road, well she tried calling once but I was eating dinner and didn't get to the phone in time. I am sure I will hear from her soon.
I'm excited and nervous. I didn't expect to be this nervous about traveling alone, I know deep down everything will work out but airports cause anxiety to begin with. They intimidate me. I am just glad I am not flying out of Logan! Mom also pointed out that I have navigated airports on my own before with Marc following so just to pretend he is behind me. So true, Mom, so true!
I'm almost done with "Jane Austen Ruined My Life"...so much for saving it for Disney. I think I am going to go lay in bed, relax, read and hopefully be asleep by 9.
So this is it...goodbye. Allow me to get sentimental for a moment or two...
This is the second PreTrip Report that I have written. It's been a little over a year since I started my first one for my August/September 2008 Disney Trip. I honestly can't believe how many wonderful friends that I have met along the way of writing these.
Planning for this trip has had many ups and downs, changes, twists and turns all for the better I think. Who knew that I would end up spending 1/2 of this trip with Jen, who I am convinced is my long lost sister. We have so much in common, it's kinda scary. I'm also looking forward to the second half of the trip with my Mom. We have never done anything like this just the two of us, I am so excited to make memories with her.
I look forward to writing PTR updates, just as much as I look forward to reading all of your responses. Thank you so much for joining in on this PTR Journey. I hope you all have had just as much fun as I have had along the way. I know coming home and being able to share my Disney trip with all of you, will make it just a little bit easier to leave Disney.
Oh and if you want to follow along on what we have planned....you can review the itinerary on the very first post. If you go to the "In Three Weeks..." posts it has the day by day.
No, you should go to bed now, it will make tomorrow come so much faster........
Have fun and I'll see you down there in a week!
Yipee!Enjoy yourself , and I agree with Mom about the airport, what a wonderful way to look at it Yay Mom!
You know we all will be following along.
Twitter often because this will be me " what are they up to now"
Oh, shoot! I missed you. Well have a fantastic time and tweet when you can! I'll miss you but am looking forward to another fantastic LL TR.
Hey LL! I may have missed you but in honor of your trip I have provided you with two LIGHT FIXTURE photos all the way from VENICE!!!! I finally got my camera back!!! I took these for you, when I was there! So if you sneak a peak on the DIS before you leave, you will see them, the rest of the Italy pics are on my PTR.
I hope you have a wonderful time, I know you will, and I hope you enjoy all the things you had on your lists!!!! Your PTR is so much fun
Oh, and I know you will love your VB Mailbag!!!
TWO Light Fixture photos for LL:
ANd MY favorite....
Awww, I guess I just missed you! Oh well, it's 9:09, so maybe you're asleep!
I know what you mean about the airport and flying anxiety, but I think your mom had a great point, and I'm glad that you're not flying out of Logan -- I really hate that airport.
I know what you mean about meeting the people on the DIS; a few days ago I had a meet with one who I am convinced is MY long long sister, and there are so many others, like you, that I love "talking" to via the site.
I hope you have a wonderful, fantastic, amazing, magical trip! I am so looking forward to your TR!
Oh, LL, I logged on tonight just to wish you a magical, wonderful, breathtaking vacation!!! Have a great time, sweetie!!! We will all be waiting to hear all about it!
I hope you're off to Never,never land and have sweet dreams of Disney right now....I'm so sorry I missed you today (stupid Comcast!!! I couldn't log on ALL DAY!) but just wanted to wish a you very MAGICAL trip with meeting Jen and having that quality time with your Mom.
I can not wait to hear all about it, will be following along on Facebook and I hope you can enjoy every minute of your trip and your worries go away after landing at MCO tomorrow morning!! I will be thinking of you!!!
Thank you for sharing this special PTR with us all and I look forward to your TR!!!!
Have a wonderful week and safe travels!!!!
Just wanted to stop buy and wish you safe and wonderful travels! I will be following your tweets through the World! Have a magical vacation!!
Where I am it's 11:53 pm. 7 minutes until LL's Disney Day.
BUT, where you are, it's 12:53 am, so it IS LL's Disney Day!
I love your Mom's point about navigating the airport. Smart Momma! The first time I ever travelled alone was flying, to move to, NYC. I was running late for my flight and literally had 5 seconds to say good-bye to my Mom who was parked illegally. I burst into tears at the ticket counter and was shaking. All the nerves boiled over! The agent at the counter was incredibly sweet, reassuring me everything would be fine, etc.
She was right! And YOU will do great...all the nerves will hopefully melt away as you fly into the air and can rest with dream of Disney right before you!
I can't wait to read your TR! HAVE A MAGICAL TRIP LL!
Love it. What a great idea to feature all those wonderful memories in one beautiful piece of art. And it doubles as a countdown! The lone Mickey head is kinda cute there by himself!
Holy cow, I did better than I thought! Woot!
Wow, that's beautiful!
You know how I had to get up at the crack of dawn....well I got up at the BUTT crack of dawn. I woke up a full 30 minutes before my alarm was set to go off. I laid there for a few minutes and the said, "IT'S DISNEY DAY!" I am showered and dressed. Just need to make my hair pretty and I will be off.
Thank you so much for all the well wishes everyone!!
See you in 9 Days!!
It was very different to see you posting at this time of the day! There's usually just me and CP and maybe a couple more early birds milling around here during these wee morning hours!
Have the bestest of times! We'll all be praying for safe travels, good weather (in spite of the predicted rain this weekend), short lines, and great memory-making times with friends!
I hope I'm not too late to hop in and say have a wonderful, magical time! I have so enjoyed following your plans. Chuck and I are looking forward to reading all about your adventures!!
I'm late....the flight was 7:15....sorry I missed you LL!! Have a great time, we'll miss you!!! See you in 9 days!!!
I missed saying goodbye in all my drama yesterday! ::
Have a great trip!
Have a great trip LL!!!!!
