Ok, Share in my excitement with me. 3 days until I can tell my secret! I will give you a craziness pre trip report and then when we get back, I’ll give you the rest of what we did…
Here is who is going
Memommy (my Mom, and much loved grandmother, AKA the biggest kids in the family)
Nangy (pronounced like tangy, but with an N)- My Dad, and much love grandfather
My DH an accountant who really cannot take time off this time of year-(who secretly appreciates Disney, but does not love it like I do)
My DD, 12 -who we will call tinker bell
My DS, 9- who really loves Disney, but we will call him Mr. Football because he loves that too
MY, DS, who is 10 months (yes, there is a huge gap), who we will call Boo Boo because that is his nickname. It is his first trip!
Here is how it started…
About 5 months ago, I was talking long and hard to my Dad about going to WDW and how the kids really wanted to go, but I was not taking a baby during the summer. He said, well let’s go in March. So, we started planning in secret. Almost daily we listen to Disney music on the computer- so that gives me a good chance to ask the kids about favorite rides, restaurants, parks,etc…
I got all my questions answered, and we made the following plans:
Memommy and Nangy are on a cruise this week, and will be getting back on Thursday. Kids think it is Friday. We will pick them up from school and tell them that Mom and Dad have had car trouble and that we have to go pick them up- in Florida. We are going to already have their bags packed (they think that they are going to the grandparents for the week, so they can help me pack). We will get in the car and drive to WDW- and they will figure it out somewhere on the road. We bought shirts that say, “I’m going to Disney World”. So, I will give them to them on the way.
Friday night we are at All Star Sports because that is Mr. Football’s dream resort. We have never stayed there, and while it will be crowded with my very tall husband, it is only one night.
Saturday, we are getting up late, touring the resort and just hanging out. Then we will go check into the POR (free dining available here). From here, the boys will go to play golf (pray for sunshine), and the girls and the baby are going to tea at the GF, then shopping somewhere. We will have had a chance to recover from driving, staying up late, etc to get ready for the parks. We hope to eat dinner at Beaches and Cream, but we will see how time goes for the golfers.
Here are the ADR’s:
Liberty Tree Tavern
50’s Prime time
La Hacienda de San ANgel
Cinderella’s Royal Table
Ok, now for the rest of this week, I have to get a major bedroom installed-lots of pieces and parts to this (I’m an interior designer), get the sitter for the baby, get the car ready to go (oil change, car wash), pack for 5 people, get the house cleaned (a 3 day job in itself). and do laundry. (I think that in my next life I would come back as a laundry fairy- Disney can make that a great movie)…
Oh yeah, and I have not packed a thing… AHHHH
That is ok, because I am not sleeping after tonight- I think…
What am I forgetting? Talk to you when we get back!
