Day 6 plans

9/20 is our second DHS day, but also our crazy schedule and surprise for DH day!

First, we have to get up even earlier for Breakfast at Boma. Does anyone know if you can catch a bus to AK at 6:30am?

Immediately after breakfast, we have a private photo session at AKL. This is actually a surprise for our parents, who have no clue we're doing this. Since it's our honeymoon, we would like some good pictures of us. Not just the sweaty park warrior look.

Then it's to DHS for a little bit of park time. I don't know if we'll be able to ride TSM. It may be 11 or noon by the time we get there, and we have to leave early. We plan to hit our favorite rides and see any shows we missed on our first day.

DH thinks we're having dinner at Backlot Express, but we're actually going to take a taxi to Medieval Times for dinner!

OMG! I never decided how to spring the surprise on him! Guys, I need suggestions. What should I do? We are also doing Keys to the Kingdom on our last day and he thinks we have a very early breakfast at Crystal Palace.

ALSO, if anyone is going to be at Disney during our stay, I would love to exchange some contact information so I can let you all know where we end up staying. We don't plan on paying for internet at the resort and I don't think I can get on DIS from my cell phone. PM me if you're interested!

Its getting close for both of us!!!

We did the medievil dinner for my son's b-day and enjoyed. We did pirates for DDil and that one was way cool too. If we left the property on this trip we were going to do the sleuth dinner as we are mystery buffs all.

We will have our LGMH's so say "Hi"

Well, they put me on a ton of meds to control the hives so they could do an allergy test, and lo and behold, I was allergic to 95% of the stuff they for which they tested. Basically, I am allergic to nature. Thank God I'm not allergic to any food or meds as well.

The Dr. said my hives looked like they came straight out of a textbook. Thanks, I guess? But they never did figure out exactly WHY I was getting them. They explained it like this:

Well, 50% of the time, hives go away in a few days. Otherwise, 50% of the time they go away in a week. Otherwise, 50% of the time they go away in a month. Otherwise, 50% of the time they go away in a year. Otherwise, 50% of the time we figure out it's some kind of freaky deaky medical condition. Otherwise, 50% of the time we have no idea why they are there and they come and go as they please. And that's why you have hives.

Okay, so I'm part of the 1% of people who has mysterious, unexplainable chronic hives. Great.

I ended up doing allergy shots for years, while taking a combination of meds that does a doozy on hives, apparently. My allergies are not completely gone, but I'm only allergic to 30% of the things on the test now. Yippee! It's got to the point where I can control my allergies with OTC Zyrtec (one of the three meds I had been taking) and I can't afford the cost of immunotherapy. So OTC it is.

I'm really worried that I'm going to have allergy issues in FL. It's the worst thing in the world to suddenly realize that your allergies are acting up and your EARLOBE is itching like CRAZY when you don't have your old prescription strength meds to beat that sucker into normality. Okay, scratch that. There are worse things. But let me just say that it's REALLY, REALLY miserable. Like tossing around in your bed all night keeping your DH up because your legs are itchy for no good reason kind of miserable.

So, this is why SilverL is still online when everyone else is outside. And also why I have a big medicine bag already packed in my suitcase like a freaky medicine man, full of Zyrtec, Sudafed, and some random heartburn medication that apparently works wonders on hives (it's one of the ones my allergist prescribed!)

I remind him often that he's married to a crazy person.


I get hives all the time - done the allergist, done the immunotherapy - nada. Since I was sixteen.

The reason that the "random heartburn medication" works is that there are two types of histamines, and two types of histamine blockers. "Type A" - hives. "Type B" - ACID REFLUX! Found that out with my first (and only) bout of BAD acid reflux this year. Down for two weeks bad. Miserable bad - hives were a picnic compared to this!

So there is your answer...same thing, different animal.

Now off to read the rest of your DREAMY plans!

That is too funny. If we were flying out in the AM, we might've been on the same flight!

Oh man, if I still had hives, I would be so miserable! Mine were horrible. It's funny though, because I took that heartburn medication through most of my teen years. I never experienced heartburn in my life until I was finally able to stop taking medication every day. Then I experienced it.

Look what we cooked up today:



YUM!

Day 7 Plans

Ah... Day 7. This is the day we will wake up, leap out of bed, put on our fatigues, and head straight to the war zone bright and early to spend the day dodging strollertanks. Yes, this is our Magic Kingdom day.

Don't get me wrong. We love the MK and we understand the plight of the stroller mom trying to navigate through the crowds. However, we live on the west coast, so DH and I have both been to Disneyland. I think I've been 3 or 4 times and he's been there once. So anyway, we've experienced the stuff at MK more than we've experienced the stuff at the other 3 parks---including the experience of getting clipped by a runaway strollertank! We are very much aware that when we have kids we'll be spending 75% of our vacation in the MK, so we've chosen to spend one full day here on this trip.

But that means going commando.

Here is our AM Touring Plan:

Ride Buzz Lightyear
Ride Pooh
Ride Snow White’s Adventure
Ride Peter Pan’s Flight
Ride Small World
Ride Haunted Mansion
Get FastPass for Splash Mountain
Ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
Ride Pirates of the Caribbean
Ride Splash Mountain

At this point, we will probably head to Columbia Harbor House for lunch---and to dry off. I don't like being wet. I may live in Washington, but here you don't get splashed. You just get rained on. It's an even distribution of wet, and you don't get soaked because you're always wearing a waterproof jacket, even in the summer. Also, it's not humid here. The worst feeling for me is being wet endlessly. That's what happens whenever I ride Splash or Kali. I get soaked down to my underwear, and then it never dries properly because of the nasty humidity. It just clings to me. I shudder just thinking about it. So, I think I better bring a change of clothes.

PM Touring Plan:

Get FastPass for Jungle Cruise
Get Dole Whips (yum yum yum)
See Enchanted Tiki Room
See Country Bear Jamboree
Ride Jungle Cruise
See PhilharMagic
See Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor
Ride Transit Authority
See Carousel of Progress

We like the cheesy rides. Or at least I do!

We have reservations at The Plaza for 6:05pm. Hopefully we will be able to complete our PM Touring Plan before dinner. Then, after dinner, all we have to do is stake out a spot for Spectro and Wishes.

You'll notice we totally skipped Toontown. See our reasoning for spending 1 full day at MK above. Although one thing I'm thinking about adding is the Tea Cups. But I have nightmares about waiting in line for that ride. So maybe not.

Day 8 Plans

Day 8 (9/22) is our last full day at Disney But, it's also our MNSSHP day!

We plan to go back to AK early in the morning and basically do whatever we want. I know we will definitely ride Kilimanjaro and Everest and have lunch at Pizzafari. We *may* go back to the hotel early to relax before the party. It depends on how much we feel like doing.

Around 3:30pm or so, we're going to head over to the MK since we can get in at 4pm. We might do a few rides before our ADR at Liberty Tree Tavern at 6pm.

By the time we get out of LTT, I imagine the party will have started. Here is our touring plan for the

Ride Haunted Mansion
Get Haunted Mansion and Cindy’s Coach Photos
Ride Pirates of the Caribbean
Ride Splash Mountain
Ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
See PhilharMagic
See HalloWishes
Ride Buzz Lightyear
Watch Parade
See Villain Show

For those who have been, what do you think of this plan?

It sounds like a good plan, but this is coming from someone who collected all her candy & sat on a bench in front of the castle for most of the party last year. I had fun just people watching & had a great view of the parade, Hallowishes & the Villian show. After Hallowishes, we rode everything we wanted & left early to avoid the crowds at the bus stop. On the way out they give you Ghiradelli chocolate, yum.

The only advice I would give you is to take it easy on the day you plan to attend, I would sleep late instead of going to AK early or you'll be too whipped to enjoy the party.

Hope to see you there, I'll be with the girl in the kimono & the guy with the blinking skull on his shirt. I still don't know what I'm going as, I guess I need to make up my mind

DH has actually changed his mind about his costume. He is now going as Frodo (Yes, from LOTR---not to be confused with Frollo). He is just going to wear a green cloak with a leaf brooch. We're mega LOTR nerds. I'm still going as Belle.

He really likes to mess with me though. He said he needed sweatpants for his Frodo costume. I almost exploded in shock. "Sweatpants?? SWEATPANTS?? ARE YOU CRAZY? WE'RE GOING TO FLORIDA IN SEPTEMBER AND YOU WANT TO BRING SWEATPANTS? FRODO DOESN'T EVEN WEAR SWEATPANTS! SWEATPANTS??" Of course, he was only pulling my leg.

I have a feeling it's going to be rough going for our first few days in Florida, though, because he stayed up until 3am last night... which is 6am eastern time. Yiiiiiiiiiiiikes! DH has never flown before, nor has he switched time zones. It's not going to be pleasant trying to make rope drop with an exhausted DH. Although it may be entertaining. Hopefully tonight he will go to bed earlier---or perhaps his young age will carry him through. As for me, I don't care how young I am. I've always needed a full night's sleep.

So, in other news, we have FOUR MORE DAYS!

In other news, I've been having a crisis that men probably don't want to read about. (That's the cue to stop reading, guys.)

Almost all of my bras decided to spontaneously combust all at the same time. Seriously! Broken wires, bent hooks that stab you in the back, wires coming out, threads coming out... I don't even know how it's possible for them all to die simultaneously. All I can say is that at least it didn't happen at WDW. Last Friday I had to order some online, and I paid extra for three day shipping. I'm starting to wonder if the same guy that screwed up Toni and Terry's travel documents drives a UPS truck, because it hasn't been updated since the 8th, and yesterday was the 3rd day. Grrr. If it doesn't come today, I'm going to be very frustrated. I don't want to have to wait around at the house late on Monday in hopes that the package will show up. Especially if it turns out that it doesn't.

One more thing (it's safe now, guys): 9/11 - Never Forget

ROFL! You know my plight well. I have an update, actually. The package arrived at a warehouse about 30 mins from here at 6am today, but it's not out for delivery yet.

Will it be delivered today or will we have to wait until Monday?

The saga continues...

All I have to say is that at least they didn't wait two more weeks to explode. If it happened in Disney, I would have a conniption.

Okay, so why does all the stress have to pile on top of me just a few days before we leave?

DH misplaced a paycheck. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't from a previous employer. So he has to go in and get them to stop that check and reprint it and also give him his last paycheck. But I don't think it will all get done before we leave. It's stressing me out because we don't have a lot of extra money. I have visions of overdrafts dancing in my head.

At this point, I think I'm going to go Dave Ramsey style and take all of our spending $ out in cash and use an envelope system while we're there. I do not want to be stressing about balances while we're there, KWIM?

We did all cash last year... Pretty much anyway... We used our debit card just for food on our way home in the airports.... I actually really liked it... Made it very easy to see how much we had spent and keep track of it all... I was paranoid that I would lose receipts and forget about transactions then create a mess of our bank account... I think we will di it the same way this year... Only use debit if we really need to...
