Really ??? Are you sure???

Well... After 2 years of planning and slowly paying off and researching... We are finally with 73 days to go..PAID IN FULL!!

Really??? It feels so surreal that this is actually going to happen !! I will do a PTR eventually once I get my head around that it is going to happen...

I can tell you so far...:

We are leaving Australia on April the 21st leaving from Perth.
We get to Orlando via Los Angeles at 6:10pm on the 22nd April.
We check in to POP from the 22nd and we check out on the 4th of May.
We then hop on the Disney Fantasy for an Eastern Carribean cruise until the 11th
The spend a few days in Orlando and fly back to Perth on the 14th but we don't land back here until the 16th.

So freaking excited and still a little panning to do as I haven to organise what days for what.. I know our first day is going to be at EPCOT for a nice casual day hopefully just taking in of the magnitude of the place I think.
We have a few dinner reservations already and we have a 10 parks with the lot so just need to put days in order now...:-).
I have had so much fun planning this holiday watching this website like a hawke and it will be to awesome to finally be able to give out advice what little I will have to others who read these boards with so much love and excitement as I have done..
Here's the the 73 days left

What a fantastic adventure you have ahead of you! How exciting!

We've stayed at the Pop before, and found it to be a very nice hotel.

I hope everything goes perfectly for you!
