Only about 6.5 days left of work! I still need to make a list of what table service meals we'll be paying for OOP, but I think everything else is done. Yay!

So glad you enjoyed the dessert party!! I know others have said it, but it was Taaren. Stacey is the one on fb whose husband worked at Hostess.

Get on the road!!

Well, there are a few places in MK for ARDs - as soon as the Disney website comes back up, you can search for ADRs - just log in to your account and "make dining reservations" this close you may need to make resort ADRs - idk you'll just have to see whats left.

Sometimes it takes awhile for a table, sometimes it doesnt, but ADRs are your best shot, because close to Christmas there are very few - if any - walk ups accepted.

In talking about the post-trip Xmas "stuff"....my DW just said:

Oh yeah..that's right...I don't have to bake cookies, make truffles, or any of that stuff this year. The world is going to end on Dec 21st! See, nothing to stress over!

I had to laugh...

I've been joking with DBF that it's okay for the world to end on Dec 21 since our last day in Disney is Dec 20 It just better not end while I'm in flight to Pittsburgh on Dec 21 Pretty sure I saw a movie about that.

End of Days?
Hellraiser?
Drag me to Hell?
The Gates of Hell?
In Hell?

No disrespect to those who live in Pittsburgh.

NO! we dont arrive until 12/24. The Mayan's must be off by AT LEAST 10 days, mkay?

Is it bad of me that I checked the accuweather forecast, and I'm glad to see rain? Maybe if it is rainy people will say at their resort and leave the parks to us. A girl can dream, right?

I'd forgotten about the world ending on Dec. 21st. We'll be at MVMCP that night. Eh, I guess if the world actually does end there are way worse places I could be
