Whoo Hoo We leave on December 17th!
We have reservations for Chef Mickey's with other friends from NY on December 19th for breakfast (they are leaving and we are just getting there!)
We are camping (Tents can you believe it) at Fort Wilderness Campgrounds from the 18th-22 and then All Star Movies from the 22-27th.
Actually we bought all brand new camping equipment over the summer and ever since we stayed in the cabins my daughter has been bugging me to stay in tents at the campgrounds because we saw tenters when we went to HoopDeeDoo.
Since this was the year we told her about no Santa (she is ten and a half) we figured it was the best year to make her wish come true!
We have reservations at the Disney Princess Storybook breakfast (after locking my keys in the trunk of the car in August we missed it!) and we are going to that on Christmas Eve morning.
We have loose plans for Candelight Processional on one of the days that Gary Sinise will be there, bummed that Scott Hamiliton cancelled.
We are going to Very Merry Xmas Party on the 20th. Its the last day, I hope its not horribly crowded on a Friday night.
Have a small tree and lights packed, lots of our disney ornaments and getting a new Disney tree topper down there in Disney!
All the presents are wrapped in Disney paper, all we have to do is put the bows on....
Counting down the days now!

Oh, I envy you so much!!! Have a wonderful time anticipating your wonderful Christmas trip!
I hope that you are driving and not flying if you have wrapped gifts. it is likely that airport security will make you unwrap them. Wrapping presents takes so long you don't want to have to do it twice
Yes we are driving...I made sure I bought gifts in boxes and anything that was not in a box already I boxed up, wrapped and labeled. On Christmas Eve I will add pretty bows and ribbon but they might get squished in the car drive down there.
We normally fly but since we are camping for part of the trip we weren't really sure how to fly with gifts, a tent, camping equipment, etc and shipping it down scares me....what if we get there and our stuff isn't??
Thankfully we have a large car and a travel top so we can get it in comfortably.
Your going to have a wonderful time. Enjoy and have a great holiday.
Re: Driving ARGGH!
Really? I LOVE the long drive. I live in Dallas, but every couple years or so I try to drive to Orlando and Anaheim. Of course, I'm single with no kids, so that makes a big difference in the quality of the drive, I'd imagine....

It sounds like you're going to have a great time. I think you'll love the decorations.
I'm a little tea pot short and stout. Here is my handle, here is my other handle. Wait a second, I'm not a tea pot, I'm a sugar bowl.
We have been down in early January just as the decorations were coming down.
For instance this past January we got there and MK's Mainstreet was amazing....it was around 8 at night and we just had to stop in to see the castle....the next morning at 8 am it was ALL GONE so those elves work fast!!!
