I've Been To The Land, Not The World

To clear mousey things up, I have been to Disneyland in California, one day in 2006. It was magical. I haven't been to Disney World. Not even to Florida.

I am seriously going to make an effort to not write every other post about my upcoming trip. It's just all I think about right now and I don't know what to do.

I wish I could start packing now. What can I even take on the plane? Will I have to use the hotel shampoo (and I bet it's a good kind) and should I just buy a toothbrush when I get there?

I want to set my alarm right now, one month in advance, so that I don't miss my bus to the airport.

I think I might know a couple more people that could be going and this makes me even more excited.

I find myself praying about how this opportunity can be used to glorify God. This makes me appreciate having a month still to prepare.

I never would have imagined going to Disney World without the kids, but since the only time I've been to a Disney place was with a 3 month old baby and hubby took the boys on all the rides, and we were only there one day, I am really looking forward to not pushing a stroller, not having to bypass all the princesses- only acknowledging Buzz Lightyear or pirates- and not having to order anything to do with a kids meal.

And maybe this time I'll get Mickey ears for myself. I'll even get my name embroidered. Yeah.

  6. We love, love, love the WORLD. We've been four years in a row!! This will be our first year to the LAND.

    Did they give you a list of things to do or do you get to pick your food, rides and schedules on your own? Because we can really recommend food!!!!

  7. You mean you didn't WEAR the baby on the rides?
    Dude! I nursed Riley on Pirates of the Carribean! I'm not kidding! He was eight months old and I took him on almost every ride. Disney is ok with it as long as it's not a rollercoaster. I had him in a frontpack and he loved it. Although I have to admit, he did NOT like Haunted Mansion (I didn't even think he was paying attention but he HATED it. But he loved everything else.

    BTW, I'm still really, REALLY jealous.

    I heart Disneyworld.

  8. p.s.
    Go get The Unofficial Guide to Disneyworld. It's a wonderful resource and made our trip extra fun. They even had tour plans for beating the crowds!
    You may be able to find it at your library. It is excellent.

    And I'm still jealous.

  12. Just wait, when you go to Disney without the kids (like Steve and I did), all you can do is think about them and what you would do with them there.

    Enjoy planning....
