It’s T-1 day for us! We’ve (okay, I’ve) been planning this trip for 180 days, plus a few, and it has felt like a loooong time. We’re all so excited to leave tomorrow; DD7 and DS5 have been talking about it nonstop for the past month and taking great joy in marking the days off our countdown calendar (which we make at 30 days out). My DH has been sweetly patient with my very frequent musings about which park to do which day, dessert parties, itinerary in general, and FPP bookings. And more (as folks on here can probably imagine). Planning it has been so much of the fun so far. I pretty much have our TP for all five days memorized.
But tonight at dinner, my husband turns to me and says cheerfully, “So, what’s our plan for Disney?” He was not kidding. It was a forehead-into-the-dinner plate moment that made me laugh out loud. Had to share that here. So then I start to tell him that our first full day will be MK in the morning, midday break, and then Hollywood Studios in the evening for Fantasmic. He says, “How will we get from the Grand Floridian to Universal?” And so then I explain that HS is Disney; Universal Studios (where we are going the second half of the week) is different.
And suddenly I felt so alone.
Guffawing aside, he really DOES know more about Disney than those qu’s let on, including having the layout of MK memorized and knowing where pretty much every character meet at greet is. And in fairness, this is our third trip and will be our first time at HS, and he has previously been to Universal Studios Hollywood in CA; so that is what he was thinking of. But it was still pretty funny.
Anyway, wish us luck! We land at MCO tomorrow around 2; hope to get to GF for some pool time and maybe even MK to use three FPP’s in the early evening before bed…
I’ve really appreciated all of the advice and camaraderie on this forum. It’s helped so much in this trip planning…
WDW, See ya real soon!
