....Once Upon a Dream....

It is official - we are booked for Disney World!!!

Alex and I have been talking since the end of last year about taking a trip to Disney with the girls and last night we booked our trip. We are so~o excited! We are going the first of May and will be there during Lillie's fifth birthday. A few months ago after seeing a Disney commercial Lillie says somberly, "Maybe we can go to Disney after I turn 5." Little did she know that was already in the works. :)

We are not going to tell the girls until time to leave. First it will be a great surprise, but mostly because they will be asking everyday how much longer until we go. We will drive down. My plan, for those of you who are also going and driving, is to make a fun chart listing the main cities we will go thru on our way and the girls can put stickers by each to help them know how much longer until we are there. I am also going to start (I already have a couple items) collecting little games and such to save for the car trip.

I will try not to post too much during the upcoming weeks about our trip, but lets face it, there's not too much more exciting than a trip to Disney with two princesses! ;o)

I would love to hear from those of you who have gone with little ones as to where is the best places to go and things to do. Please leave me your comments and suggestions!


  1. Hey, sis,
    That sounds exciting for all of you! If you get a chance (and have time) swing by either on your way there or back (or both...). Even if its just for a meal, we'd love to have you.
    Since its on the way, anyway. :)
    Love you,

  2. JW - We would love to, but we are planning on doing a lot of really early morning or late night traveling. This way the girls will sleep thru quite a bit of the trip there and back. We do hope to get down one of these days to visit.

  3. How exciting!! As far as a drive down to Forida...make sure you have plenty for them to do and the drive won't be too bad. I found some really neat books at Books-A-Million that were on clearance. I also found some cute things at Cracker Barrel. I made sure to save some things back for the drive back home. Also DVDs are a save!!
