This is our big Christmas gift this year When?
We all head out Saturday morning- December 22nd as early as possible. My sister and her crew come back the day after Christmas. We are staying until January 4th. Where?
We are staying off property in a large vacation home. Why?
To celebrate Christmas How?
We are driving down; I broke out the surprise to my kids a few days ago while my sister is waiting to surprise her kids the morning of the trip. And my kids also have one more surprise in store; they have no idea my sister is going, they will find out when we arrive… I plan for this to be a semi-live trip report…
I hope that you and your family have a magical time at the world

My goal was to head out at 5am. Despite waking up at 3am, we still didn't hit the road until 6am. I still had a fair bit of packing and cleaning to do.... Once on the road, we made excellent time. We only had three stops; breakfast drive thru, potty break, and lunch/gas fill up.... Unfortunately we hit some horrid traffic after lunch that was stop and go due to some wildfires on the turnpike.... Once we got basically to the vacation home, we stopped off at Walmart to pick up some groceries. My sister had been running a solid half hour ahead of us all day and beat us to the home... which worked out perfectly for the kids second suprise; walking into the vaca home and finding my sister and her family in the living room. They were so excited! I have video of both the suprise trip reveal and the suprise seeing my sister that I will post later.... It has been a loooong day. We arrived at the vaca home just after 4pm and my brother in law made spaghetti and garlic bread for everyone for dinner.
Tomorrow we get up bright and early to head to the Magic Kingdom! I hope we can manage the crowds....
