WE'RE GOING BACK!!!! Its been a LONG 2 years and 9 months...but we are finally going back and taking Sarah this time!! She's finally tall enough to ride 98% of the rides!

We're changing things up this time after our so-so stay at Pop Century last time. We visited Wilderness Lodge while there in Jan. '08 and fell in love! Its in the Magic Kingdom area and while NOT on the monorail loop, it is only a very cool boat ride away! That beats a crowded hot bus anyday!! We plan to probably only do Magic Kingdom and Epcot this trip. (and a day at Seaworld, too, but shhh....even Beth doesn't know this yet!) We got a bunkbed room in hopes that the girls will be able to settle down better at night sleeping separate, as sleeping side-by-side in hotels tends to do nothing but delay sleep for hours and get them in trouble! :-) We HAVE told Beth, but we plan to not tell Sarah until a day or two before we go! The plan is to drive to Destin -hang out at the beach for a few days, then fly from Panama City Beach to Orlando! (I found AWESOME rates of $49 each if we fly from Panama City Beach instead of our "home" airport and I think part of the Disney experience is the flight and the airport and the Magical Express bus taking you to your resort!!) Plus this will allow some "down" down before and after the week at Disney - which will be needed!!

This is Wilderness Lodge - isn't it awesome! Beth is super excited about the pool! (So am I!) I am excited about spending more "down" time this trip - hanging at the pool!

Only 47 days!!!
