    Pretrip Report

    We will be leaving the greater podunk chesse eating region of Wisconsin on Aug 20 heading for Chicago. After a few stop offs at various relatives homes and 2 over nights at my sisters house, we will be flying out of Midway airport on the morning of Aug 22, flying direct to Olrando. We will be taking the Magical Express to our resort, which is Caribbean Beach Resort. With only 3 weeks left to go we have already started out pre-pre-trip packing. This includes dusting off the luggage and purchasing new mickey gear at the Disney Outlet store. Bought some rain ponchos and umbrellas at the dollar store. Went to the party store and bought some hand held personal fans and some glow in the dark necklaces (just a way to save money at the parks). With the suitcases lined up on the bed in the spare room we are counting down the last 21 days till our vacation begins. We are so looking forward to it.

    Re: Pretrip Report

    Well, we had a bad weekend. A close relative of mine was involved in the incident in the Wis Dells. It kinda takes the luster off of the trip to WDW. We are continuing to prepare but with saddened hearts. It was very theraputic to check all of the posts on here to try to forget what happened. We can only pray now.

    Re: Pretrip Report

    15 more days..I really enjoy the countdown, but it is somewhat torturous. I can't wait to stand on Main Street USA and look down the street at Cinderella's Castle. No better fealing can beat it.

    Re: Pretrip Report

    ok...I have 13 days to go...I have this sneaking suspicion that these last 2 weeks are going to crawl by...I am so excited...my children now think that I am nuts as well as my wife. I started packing today. No clothes. Just the extras, like rain ponchos, unbrellas, misc. toiletries and my Disney attire. I have also organized my Disney folder with all the lists and paper work that I am going to need for Magic Express, my resort check in, that other park tickets and itineraries. I also put my Disney lugguge tags on all of my suitcases. I am so stoked and excited, but I guess you all know what I am going through.

    Re: Pretrip Report

    I have 5 days to go! AH! My trips are usually in the spring and I start packing a month in advance haha, but I can't really do that for this trip because I need all my summer clothes NOW! I tried to pack 3 weeks ago but my suitcase was pretty empty haha. But, in exactly one week today I will be at the Hollywood Studios getting ready for my lunch at Sci-fi! Wooo woo!
