Its Finally Here, Pre-Trip Report

It all started on our way back home from our last trip last year. Last year was our first trip ever to WDW and we just LOVED it. It was me(31then),my mom(50ish), Jeremy(12),Jayden(2). I was secretly planning our 2nd trip to WDW, I just had to go back. I originally had dates for April but when things happen that are out of your control, you just roll with it and move on. So I did, and switch the dates to August 24-29. We are staying at POP again, the boys just loved it as well as I. We drove the last trip, this trip we are flying. The first time with a toddler, this is going to be a learning experience.

I made our ADRs at 180 days out, and got everything we wanted. As the months turned into weeks and now weeks into only 2 days left, I cant believe that its almost time to go back to the most Magical Place on Earth. I just love to share it with my kids and my mom too. We are planning to get to DTD and TL that we didnt get to last year. We are doing alot of firsts and alot of our favorites. Me and my oldest started last trip seeing how many time we can ride TOT in a row. And this year Jayden is tall enough to ride Splash, so we will see if he actually wants to this year. I was hoping to bring him on Haunted Mansion but it is being refurbd, I was truly saddened by this, I love this ride. Another first is I am leaving my laptop home, whenever I have it, I tend to do work or school work on it, so it was told by my oldest to leave it home...I had to listen

My concerns lie mostly with the flight, so much new stuff since last time Ive flown plus having the car seat and gate checking a stroller too. What was I thinking??? I think Im alil COO-COO for coco puffs.... Our flight is scheduled to leave at 6am another coo coo moment...but we get to WDW early then....woohoooo

Well I think this is it for my COO-COOness until I return....
