Waiting is soooo hard! 110 days to go!

I actually don't know how I'm going to get through all 110 days! I'm so very excited about our trip to Disney world! The sunshine isn't helping matters haha! Makes me want my holiday even more! I may just have to dig out and old disney planning DVD and convert it to 3d on my brothers DVD player just to give me a little Disney fix!

How are you all coping with your wait till your next trip to the most magical place in the world? What are you doing to help with the wait?

I actually can't stop thinking about it haha! Too excited :-D

I have been counting the days since I booked it at 330 days. We now only have 22 days to go!! From about 120 days we started a countdown chain and have a Disney night once a week. There is a thread on this on the Family board. We have food and activities based on a particular film and then watch the film together after. It's great fun!

I've seen your vids already :-) I must say I'm a sucker for YouTube to! It's probably the only thing I watch on their is people's videos that they have made on their trips to Disney world! Gets me even more excited! We plan on making some videos of our trip to upload to YouTube :-) that's once I but a new laptop when we get back from there!

That actually sounds awesome and may help give me a disney fix! I am most certainly going to check this out!

I started counting day from the 190 day mark and I must say I can't believe we are already down to 110 days to go but I feel that it is now dragging more and more, 22 days to go though WOW, I bet your thinking about it non stop!

Where are you staying and how long for? What are your plans?

I'm hoping they go fast! 2 girls at work have thief holiday coming up in the next few weeks so I'm pretty sure those 3 weeks will drag like hell as I have cover staff in and it's always harder with cover staff in a room with 9 babies than the 2 girls I usually work with! But there after I'm hoping time will fly by! We pay off the holiday I'm 2 Fridays time so that's very exciting then any money we save after that is spending money for the holiday :-)

I remember when I was saying to my fella that we had about 200 days to go! He was like really?! Your counting already! And I was kind of keeping an eye on it every now and again! But now his with me on the countdown and messages me every morning with the countdown :-) glad his finally joint me on the countdown and his nearly as excited as me :-)

What date do you go? Any plans? Where are you staying?

We've booked last June for this August, 124 days to go! I think I'm driving BF bonkers! This morning I was panicking about online check in and downtown checkin and his reply was that its only April! I know that but there's so much to plan and organise I don't want to forget something! I haven't been since 2005 and that was a Virgin package holiday so this is my first DIY trip and Bf's 1st trip to America. It's all bit overwhelming but exciting!

I am also hooked to youtube...we love to watch Phil, Emma and Ben and Stef n Jeff.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS08wBFsINM

The other think that we or should I say 'I' watch are the 'Take 5 minutes' vids from DIS. They just plonk a camera down and leave it there for 5 mins and its just like being there sitting watching the world go by.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56dN_1V8oWo

The other youtube one I am addicted to is 'The Disney Diner' vids..the lady on there shows you how to cook loads of food from WDW...ie cupcakes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMtHt4c1kcU

And that is how I get my Disney fix EVERYDAY...
