waiting for a train to go, or a bus to come, or a plane to go…
Ahhh!! I’m at the point where I’ve done all the planning I can do, flights booked, resorts, room request, touring plans, back up touring plans, dining, back up dining, breaks, budgets, transportation. Now I’m just waiting…and it’s so hard!!!

In the meantime, I’ll share my plan because it’s all I can think about! (Trip includes me, husband, and 4 kids 12, 10, 7,7), 3/19-3/27 split stay CSR/POP (2 rooms in each resort, fingers crossed they give us connecting!)

~4:40 DME from Pop back to MCO for 7:30pm flight home
Seems like it’s going to go by so fast!! But, I’ll just be happy to be in WDW with my family. This trip will be a much needed escape and I want to make sure we balance relaxation/swimming/rest with enjoying the parks and food, so if we let go of some of these plans as we go that will be fine.
