We leave for Disney on Friday - the high is supposed to be 56 for the day and 37 at night.

The five day forecast for Orlando, based on WFTV.com (ABC affiliate), is low sixties during the day and low to mid 30's @ night.
WELCOME and have a great trip!

Good day, Snowbirds!! I'm so excited for all of you who still have your trips to look forward to. I hope you all have a magical trip.

Checking in this morning to give you some post-Disney trip details . . . that is, if you all want them. I prefer not to do an official TR. I'm more comfortable here with my fellow Snowbirds!

Our trip was fantastic from start to finish. Our flights were on-time on the way down and we got to DH's sister's house with no problems. We enjoyed some time there and rested our heads for the night before heading to Disney on the 6th. We didn't expect to have much time on the 6th for play but were able to extend our day so we had lots of time to enjoy the parks.

We checked in to the Wilderness Lodge at 11:30. Our room was ready and waiting for us, just as I requested . . . inner courtyard. Room 5041. The WL was beautiful. I loved spending time just walking through taking everything in. Here are some picutres. Sorry they are so big.





We spent ample time in all of the parks. The first two days were fairly crowded (relatively speaking of course). We waited 40 minutes for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad but most other things were empty. The rest of the days were completely empty. Even with the marathon, things were fairly dead.

We had some great dining experiences, although I gained 4 lbs last week We ended up not going to Crystal Palace for dinner and went to Whispering Canyon instead. It was a fun time and DS enjoyed the antics. We also enjoyed Chef Mickey's, Ohana, LeCellier and we LOVED the Hoop Dee Doo.

DS proved to be a dare devil. He just eeked though the 40 inch rides with about 3/4 of an inch to spare. He rode Tower of Terror 3 times, Test Track, Soarin, Dinosaur, BTMMR . . . everything he could ride, he did ride. He wanted to ride Space Mountain but was, obviously too short. We assured him that on his next trip he would be able to ride.

Random trip pics to come . . .

So, I have a stupid question. Am I a snowbird even though I live in sunny California? We leave for WDW on Saturday the 24th at 12:30 am!!! DS (14) has to be at winterguard (Drumline) rehearsal until 9:30pm so we had to do a red-eye.
Can you believe I just booked the vacation on Saturday???? I am completely insane, but my husband just changed jobs and starts the new one the first week of Feb. so we decided what the heck. Cashed in frequent flyer points, and booked Yacht Club CL. I have never had less than 6 months to plan and am in panic mode right now. But I have to tell you, reading everyone's posts has made me better prepared. So, thank you all!
I really LOVED the 'live' reports! I hope it stays nice.
For those of you leaving this week, have a fun and safe trip!
to the Snowbirds! Wow. I don't know if I could do a last minute trip, but I know my DH sure could! Anyways.....we're arriving on the same day so that's awesome!

It's super cold here today. High of 8 and tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be even colder. This trip cannot come fast enough!

When my DH was getting ready for work this morning, he said, "I think I see throwing up in my near future." Wonderful. Just great. The sickness has now passed to him. I told him it's better to get it out of his system now! We leave in 10 days!!!!

6 more days!!!

I just checked and guess what??? My arrival day forecast has changed again! Remember is was 58, the 63, then 73 (just yesterday), it is now 51. That was supposed to keep going up, not down!!!
Go to the Orlando local weather channel(channel 13) --I check theirs too. It has it cold this week, but all that I have looked at, has it warming up into the 70s for the next week.

Good Morning everyone!! Well, we are cold here!!! I feel for all you Northeners going through this crazy freezing weather!! I am definitely not acclimated for that!!!! We are dropping into the 30s at night and it's freezing us!!!!

Mindy,love the pics---Ry is a little doll!!!!Did he have a blast or what?!! Did you do any EMH and have to keep pulling out y'alls tickets for each ride? How is that working out? I guess I will have to buy the kids a lanyard there if we have to do this. I dont want to keep getting out mine and all 3 of theirs every line we are in. Hopefully they will go back to the bracelets!!! Well, I am just trying to keep everyone well and get this school work going on track!! They are a little bit ahead in a couple of subjects, so if they aren't finished by Thurs, Friday should be really short. Thank goodness, cause we are telling them (somehow) on Thurs. Afternoon. Keepin' them focused on school after that will be fun.

I was not feeling all that great that evening, so the night was kind of a blur. I remember having BBQ ribs, baked beans and some corn on the cob. There was lots of protein. My husband ate himself silly . . . beef, ribs and something else that I can't remember.

I remember seeing other people order milkshakes that looks super yummy and they were unlimited.

Honestly, I couldn't have eaten another thing that night. I was completely stuffed.

The atmosphere was lovely. NOISY! DS liked riding his horse around and he like the way the servers galloped their trays around. We did NOT ask for ketchup but enjoyed watching other people deliver their bottles to other tables.

We'd probably go back.
