Y’all. We made it. After years of dreaming, months of planning, several cancelled trips, a complete pivot, and several more months of planning, it’s finally coronation day—I mean, time to head to Florida!
Me, the only one in our party that’s been to WDW previously, but it was 2001, so very much a whole new world.
DH- when we went to DLR I tricked him by planning a trip to see a baseball game and then whoops, right down the road, look what I found! No tricks needed this time.
DD6- she was not quite 2 when we took her to DLR, but swears she remembers. She is so excited that she’s tall enough for rollercoasters, I just hope she doesn’t put too much pressure on herself to follow through if they’re bigger than she thinks when she sees them. She’s always been my cautious girl, but she also continually surprises me, so we’ll see.
DD3.1- though she’s never seen a minute of any Star Wars movie, she’s R2-D2’s biggest fan and has talked of nothing but going to see him at his house for weeks. When you ask what she’s going to tell him she goes through a very specific series of beeps and boops. Needless to say, I’m dying to get her to Galaxy’s Edge.
DD3.2- My Mickey lover—I may cry if she can hug him- but she saw a video of Slinky Dog Dash and all she wants to do is ride the puppy. My measuring tape says she’s tall enough, but just barely, so send some pixie dust our way that will make her stand up straight.
We’re taking 2 days to pull our camper from south east Texas to Fort Wilderness before spending 5 days in the Disney bubble and then driving another 2 days home. We’ll hit Magic Kingdom twice, each of the other parks once, and visit a handful of resorts. We will be using Genie+ and are unlikely to make any rope drops. Wish us luck!
