    Update! Chauncey and I bought our tickets the other day from OrlandoFunTickets.com (thanks for the source Lou!). We got 5 day park hopper tickets for the price of 4! Mom's going to buy her one day park hopper at the Disney store at the mall here before we leave since she's only going that Monday to the parks. Then we're going to surprise her with a ticket to MVMCP on the 16th! I've traded phone numbers with a couple of folks that I didn't have yet and am working out trying to finally put faces with names (including you Tracy ) Only a few more weeks to go!!!

    Our tickets arrived Monday, and I ordered mom's from Disney today so we're pretty much set to go! Our washing machine will (hopefully) get repaired on Monday since I'm way behind on laundry.

    He'll be fine. As long as he remembers to breathe and not worry if he doesn't see absolutely everything.

    I wouldn't worry about staying in the condo. I would so gladly trade you!!! Think of all that space. How fabulous is that!
    He'll be fine since I won't be there.....You, caroline and myself together IN DISNEY is like setting a shoplifter amuck in Macy's

    I did the 'behind the scenes' tour and it was a blast for me as a Disney fan. I got to see how the sets in the American Adventure work, the MK Utilidors, and the simulator works for Star Tours (or it may have been Body Works).
    For Disney fans, it is very very cool!
    However, if your mom isn't interested enough to go to the parks, she may not appreciate the things we would consider awesome.
    Just my 2 cents.
    Enjoy your trip!!

    I can't believe my trip is almost here! Friday was our school's "senior project" presentation night, so Chauncey and I were up late Thursday night finalizing our projects. Then we both did our thing Friday for faculty, possible employers, friends, family, etc. I have two more days of school (Monday and Thursday) and then I am done! I will have officially graduated from college with my bachelors degree. We had a graduation party here at the house tonight with my parents, his parents and some other family. So now except for a couple of school things, this week can be dedicated to getting ready for WDW! Luckily I have Wednesday free from both work and school so I plan on getting a LOT of stuff done that day. We'll be leaving next Saturday morning about 2am so we'll probably hit Florida and our condo around 7pm Saturday night, give or take an hour or so with bathroom stops and stuff. Then we'll crash and sleep like rocks. Then Sunday morning we'll probably go grocery shopping then Chauncey and I will hit the MK for the trivia meet! So next Sunday will officially be the first time he steps foot on Disney property. I think that's all I have for now, but as the week goes on and the excitement builds I'm sure I'll have more to post! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    12. Merge onto I-4 W via EXIT 259 toward TAMPA. (go 9.4 miles)
    13. Merge onto FL-535 S/S APOPKA VINELAND RD via EXIT 68. (go 0.9 miles)
    14. End at 8800 Vistana Centre Dr Orlando, FL 32821-6353

    I just bought our MVMCP tickets. I picked up a card and we're going to surprise mom with hers when were at breakfast at the Crystal Palace. I'm all packed except for toiletries which will get packed on Friday evening. So we're pretty much ready to go!

    I had my step-dad look at our printed directions and see if we should change it any since he goes that way at least once a year. Of course now we may not need them with my new GPS I got from my mom. I think I'll hang on to them just in case.
