I've got Disney Brain!


For the past couple of days, We've really been trying to nail down our Disney plans for next year. We thought we'd go back in December '08, but the week was turning out to be 12/13 - 12/20 and I just can't see us going so close to Christmas for numerous reasons. Too many issues arose, so Jim & I decided we needed to find another week.


We bought the Unofficial Guide to Disney World on Saturday, got the crowd calendar info, printed off the times the parks were going to be open and went to work. After much deliberation and some stalling, we've decided that we're going back from 9/27 - 10/4. We'll even be in Disney over Jim's birthday (10/3) and I'm getting him a birthday button to wear that day, for sure! LOL.


We also did an itinerary for the week, which we both are pretty happy with. We wanted to plan in some "down time" so that we weren't bypassing some of the "Stop and Smell the Roses Stuff" and so that we didn't burn out. The boys threw in their input on where they wanted to go the 1st day and we always talk about "must do's" on the trip, so we can be sure of what we don't want to miss. We'll need to get Sara's input on what she really wants to do, but I think she'll have a better idea of this after she gets back from a Disney/Florida trip with her mom next month. We usually end up changing around the itinerary a few times before we go (it becomes an obsession. ha!).
All in all, I'm very excited and I love this sort of stuff. Planning a trip like this is half the fun for me and I've gotten my family into it as well. I want us all to be part of the planning! Matthew has even already asked me if we'll make another countdown calendar, so of course we'll make one (for the month prior to leaving). The boys were thrilled to hear that we were going back 3 months prior to when they thought we were going, too. I love to hear how happy it makes them to go to Disney World. If you need me, I'll probably be hanging out on the Disboards or Passporter boards! LOL
