From Certifiably Insane to Shockingly Lucid: 10/20 - TR Link Posted, We're Back!!!

Welcome! For anyone who read the title and is curious, let me explain.

DH (26) and I (Ann, 24) live in New Jersey. We currently have a fantastic trip booked for 7 days in December (see the link in my signature) and can't wait to goÖÖ...







................no seriously, we couldn't wait. So I came up with the brilliant idea to drive down to attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!!!

Since our trip in 2007 when we were exiting the Magic Kingdom as everyone else was entering in costume, I knew it was a party I wanted to go to one way or other. So we are! We are going to drive down from New Jersey straight through (about 17 hours), crash for the night as a cheap hotel and go to the party the next day. After that, we'll crash for another night at a cheap hotel and then drive the 17 hours back.

So yes, I may be certifiably insane, but whether it works our well or is a complete disaster, it'll be a trip we'll never forget!

The Details:

So, right now there aren't many "details" of this trip, other than the fact that we are going! We're in the early planning phase, but here is what I think the trip will look like:

Thursday - October 8, 09

- Leave the house at 3:00am drive, drive and oh yeah, drive some more.
- At approximately 9:00pm arrive in Orlando, barring any major traffic problems
- Check into very cheap hotel (probably the Fairfield Inn at Marriott Village or something on priceline) and crash.

Friday - October 9, 09: OUR ANNIVERSARY!

- Be up and about by 10:00am or so depending on how late we actually get into Orlando
- Walk or drive to DTD to do a little shopping and get lunch
- Return to our room for maybe a little power nap and to change into our get-ups for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
- Go to MNSSHP from 4:00pm to 12:00am with dinner at The Plaza Restaurant

Saturday - October 10, 09

- Have breakfast and check out by 10:00am or so
- Start driving. I'd like to drive all the way up to a little south of Washington DC (12 hours) and pull off somewhere for the night around 10:00pm

Sunday - October 11, 09

- Have breakfast and get back on the road. If DM is willing to watch the dogs for a littttttle while longer, maybe make a pit stop at the Aquarium in Baltimore, but that's doubtful.
- Return home by 12:00pm or so.
- SLEEP!

The Cast:

The cast is the same as in my Christmas PTR that I currently have going over here, however I am going to introduce us again for any new readers!

Me (Ann) - 24 years old. I'll be one week shy of of the big 2-5 on this crazy trip. I'm getting all of this "what are you nuts?!" stuff out of my system before I hit the bit 2-5 and am officially in my "mid-20's"

Hi



DH (Erik) - 26 years old. He's allowing us to take this trip as an anniversary/birthday present for me. Presently, we are scheduled to be attending MNSSHP on October 9, our 4 year wedding anniversary.

Hi from Erik



My DM will be going on our trip in December, but will not be joining us for this trip. It'll be just the two of us, which is nice since all of our other trips this year have been with additional travelers.

More to come in the next installment. Hopefully I get some readers in this PTR!!

We'll be there a couple of weeks after you.

That would be a good idea.

I saw that you will be there the week after for your anniversary. We were considering going that weekend instead for my birthday, but we just couldn't swing it.
