I'll be arriving on Monday and was so bummed about the teacups because when I was little I was really motion sick and my parents thought it best to not let me ride them and then when we went twice when I was an older teen, we either didn't have time to get to them or they were closed for refurb. So needless to say, I've been wanting to go on them since I was 5 and I'm 20 and was so bummed that I'd go again and miss them yet again but now I AM SO BEYOND HAPPY.
THANK YOU.<3

Any hope that it'll clear up or we get to go swimming? Does the rain come and go quickly or will or last all day like it does here??
We have gone the past 2 Jan and I don't remember a drop of rain. I also think those forecasts are dead wrong more then 4-5 days out. Don't worry about it. Just pack a sweatshirt and pants, for those cooler mornings and evenings, and you should be ok. Maybe some gloves too. My husband takes the kids in the pool..not for as long as in the summer but they still go in. Way too cold for me though..has to be in the 90's for me to get in!

Checked in

I just checked in online. For some reason it wouldn't take my Chase Disney Card. I guess I will have to update it when I arrive plus add charging privileges. Put in a request for ground floor since I will have to have a scooter.
13 sleeps

Gotta love those surprise snowstorms! At least you don't have to deal with that this time. HAve a great trip!

I have to know; were you on the Southwest flight that waited for the flight to arrive from Pittsburg (the three hour de-icing)? If so, we flew to MCO together! My kids had a tough time waiting on the plane, but as soon as we took off, smooth flying!! I keep saying - no snow until February!

I am terrified that my family will get it before the trip. I better stock up on hand lotion; I am making everyone wash hands over and over!

Best News!! I just read this to my 3yo DD and she ran up and gave me a HUGE hug!

I always ride that one with the kids and get their picture on it together. It is so fun to see them age when I compare the pictures over the years.

We leave is 6 more days and I am trying to figure out what to pack. Do most people wear pants or shorts? We usually go in October.

I usually pack some of everything for January. We have take many January trips, and there are very warm days and cold days- within the same week. So I am packing shorts, pants, and capris. I am packing short-sleeve shirts and a jacket for layering. Also tucking in some gloves and a ear-warming headband. We have needed them some cold nights.

Pack something to wear in the rain. It may not rain at all-winter does not have the daily quick downpours that summer does in WDW. However, when it does rain, the rain sems to hang around for a good part of the day, and with the cooler temps the rain is less comfortable in the winter than in the summer.

Packing is a challenge for me this time- we have been going in August for the past several years. This is also the first time we are flying- which changes my packing method completely.

Can't wait!!!
Good Vacation wishes for everyone!!!

We check in tomorrow morning at ASMu! I'm really worried because it's our first value and there's some cheerleading competition taking over all three All-Stars resorts the entire time we're there. So hopefully we can make the best of it!

No, we were on the US Air flight that sat on the runway for 3 hours due to engine trouble and de-icing (twice). My DS had strep and bronchitis (we didn't know the diagnosis until we got there and made a special birthday ER trip ) so the wait was extra miserable. We are doing the "no snow until Feb" chant in our house too!

I can't believe I will be at WDW this time next week. I've been planning this trip for so long I never thought it would get here.

1/21 - 1/26 at POP!
