I'm not sure if I'm driving or flying yet. We were also thinking about spending another couple of days at Pop Century after the cruise. I can get free 2 day hopper tickets so all we'd have to pay for is the hotel and it's super cheap. The only thing that has been finalized is the land & sea package itself! I still have more planning to do!

i wish we could come back and spend extra days at the world after the cruise but my DFi works for the railroad and he goes back on call the monday after we get back so we can't. My parents are paying for us to fly airtran of course i could get buddy passes from my uncle since he works for Delta and he never uses them but i know with our luck we would get bumped and never get down there. Plus with airtran if you arrive early you can pay like $50 extra if you want to fly 1st class and i am thinking of doing that since this will be my DFi first time flying i think it would be nice for him and for me I have made the drive too many times to count and its not that bad from here in GA only about 6.5 to 8 hours at the longest.

You're lucky with that drive! The drive for me is 16-17 hours. And that's without stopping. Last time we did it, we stopped in Savannah for the night and then continued on the next day. We did it once where we drove straight through to Orlando and by the time we got there, we were so tired we didn't want to do anything. It's much better to have a stopover!

It's his first time flying? Is he nervous? I'm not a big fan of flying but it's much more convenient!

Savannah is nice I may live in georgia but i have only been there once. Yeah the drive isn't that bad i generally sleep most of the way or we bring a portable DVD player and i watch a movie. He is a little bit nervous but he is also looking forward to not having to drive down or drive while we are at disney. I on the other hand love to fly and prefer it to driving. My mom said he could have one of her xanex before we fly out if he thinks it will bother him (once he takes one of those he wouldn't care what happened) but i don't think he will be that worried about it.

How long is the flight for you guys? It must be short. From NJ it's only 2 1/2 hours. I have to force myself to not think unhappy thoughts when I fly. It's like Peter Pan for me I guess. Think happy thoughts. It's not my favorite thing in the world to fly but I'm ok once we're in the air.

Happy Holidays!

its a hour long the longest flight i have been on is to Jamacia which was almost 3 hours i think but we got to watch some i love lucy episodes. Well when we fly i am going to be the one sitting by the window. i enjoy flying but i am always reading the SKY mall magazine the stuff they sell in there is amazing and i wonder if anyone has bought anything from it.
Merry Christmas to Y'all too!! We are leaving sunday for Nashville to visit my aunt and uncle we call them the beverly hillbillies of our family so everyone loves to visit them. We wanted to go to a Titans game while we were there but they are sold out for 3 years

Sold out for 3 years? That's insane but I'm not surprised. I think the Jets & Giants have huge waiting lists for season tickets. It's impossible to get them unless they're passed down to you from someone in your family.

Hope you had a great Christmas! I did but I'm exhausted today.

Yeah 3 years since they have a i think 13-2 season and up until their game with the jets they were undefeated and they haven't done this good except for their first season when they went to the Super Bowl. I like the titains but i wish they would have lost their last game since i am a BIG STEELERS FAN!! my step dad in from Penn. so i have grown up watching the steelers but i like the jets mainly b/c of Farve now. The falcons tickets aren't in such a high demand this is the first year in a long time that they haven't SUCKED! so the ticket prices are going up. I had a great Christmas but i was exhausted and we had a pic fight at my dads so i came home looking like camron dias in "somthing about mary" but it was fun my luggage is already half way packed but i have to do laundry 2morrow inorder to finish it

My nephew is a Steeler fan. I don't know how he became one because my brother likes the Jets and my SIL likes the Cowboys. Go figure

I had a great Christmas too but it was very tiring! I was driving all over the state and I had to work today so I'm pretty beat. I'm looking forward to the weekend so I can just lounge around and relax!!

Oh and under 9 months to go now!

It was warm here for Christmas too, but "warm" for us in December is the upper 40s. Anything close to 50 during the winter is warm!

I've been watching the Disney cruise DVD and looking at people's trip reports on here. I love reading everyone else's stories and looking at their pictures. We also have a book here in the TA that's all about the cruise line so I've been reading that too! It's been slow....

I just bought my 2009 Birnbaums guide to WDW although i already know all of the secrets it is a family thing my stepmom has all of the guides so since i am getting married i am starting my own "library" now i just need the 2009 Birnbaums DCL Guide. my family is got me some disney christmas decorations for my house next year: i got a wooden sculpture of mickey and an eeyore that looks like a deer with bells on. Did you have a good New Years? Mine was good but it was weird being an hour behind so everyone else in my family was calling me when it was midnight there but it was only eleven here.

Happy new year! I had a good one, it was very lowkey though. I was just hanging out with my family and playing Rock Band with my nephew. We ate a lot of food! It was a good time
We have the Birnbaum guides here! I can send you a copy of the DCL one

I'll see if we have any extras in the stock room. I've been reading it here and there since it's been so sloooow. I'll let you know when I can get it out to you.

We played Rock Band on easy so it wasn't very hard! You could always be the singer if you can't play the instruments. The drums were the best but it was hard to get on them because my 10 yr old nephew was hogging them!!!
