Hello! If you all are familiar with Reading area, we live about 40 min north of there. Have you ever driven to WDW? We have always flown, but the thought of saving some $ by driving is tempting! Thanks for saying HI! YAY Phillies!

WE have driven from Philly both with and without DS. Of course with DS it was alot easier, no need to stop as much. With DS what we did the 3 times we drove with him was to get him bathed and into his pj's and leave at bedtime. He would fall asleep in the car and sleep until it was time to stop for breakfast (usually in Georgia). We would hit WDW right around lunch time

I have a friends that did this and they said they would never do it again. They said it seemed like, even though it was roughly the same amopunt of time as driving, that it took longer because you couldn't get out into fresh air and stretch your legs.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I believe they're still as good. I haven't been down there in a while myself for one, (only about 15 mins.), but my friend lives right there and they get them all the time. Mmmmm.

Yep, I am getting ready to wrap the "boxes" it is a small box with a little airplane, some Disney stickers, and a calendar page of the month of May.

They will each one a box, (all with the same stuff in) and we get to see whom guesses it first. DH and I have bets on who gets it first. I say the DD, DH says the older DS.

We were going to go in March, but the kids have WAY too much testing!
