We had to get up at that time last year and amazingly, my 3 and 5 year old were up and out happily! They made it all day, checked in, went to CBR pool for a little, in MK by 3 pm and left at 9 pm. I have a pic of them in their matching mickey Tshirts asleep on the bed when we layed them down.

We have a 7am flight, too. The goal is to be out the door by 4:45am. I'm seriously considering drugging (melatonin) the kids (even the 15 yr old) at 7:30 or 8 the night before so they can get some sleep. I know I won't sleep- I'll be packing and checking my packing list and rechecking my list and wondering what I forgot to put on the list and rearranging what goes in which suitcase and should I pack one more outfit for Savannah and... Well, you get the idea

ETA- forgot to thank those of you who put the new thread together. 5 pages in already- wow!

Nope, no shipping charge, no tax. I remarked to DH to come see the screen just because it was so odd to see the final charge being the same as the subtotal for us Canadians! we were really on the fence too but decided we would regret not getting it and would do without something else instead.. I sold some jewelry I make and some veggies we grow for almost half the cost so it's not as bad....

Thanks so much for the advice. We still have a little while until be have to send for it but leaning toward yes, especially after hearing no tax, no shipping for Canadians as well! Do you know if this is a normal thing or limited time? Perhaps we will put some things up for sale and maybe run a lemonde stand or two lol.

Did you use a Travel Agent or did you book your trip yourself?

All by myself, and everything arranged online this time, except for 1 call to CRO to request a room location, and pay off the balance

I haven't really used a TA since the Magic Kingdom Club went away.
Doesn't mean I wouldn't, if I felt I'd be getting a better deal, but with the tips I've gotten from the DisBoards, I think it would be a close call

My son's favorite thing in the world is to leave for the airport for vacation when it's still dark outside. For this trip, we're flying out of LaGuardia at 7:50 and have a car picking us up at the apartment in Tribeca at 5:30am. I looked up sunrise for Manhattan that day and it's 6:16am. Hopefully it will be dark enough to satisfy DS at 5:30.

My DS is the same way. We are flying out of JFK at 8:30 so we are leaving at 5:30. Those lines at security can be outrageous first thing in the morning. Last year we were in line for 40 minutes, and this year I have two first timers flying with me, and my mom only flew for the first time last year so I have to guide everyone through. I'd rather have time on our side.
