The details

By Tara Zandra | August 22, 2006

So, after almost 3 years, 2 postponements and a cancellation, we are finally going to Disney World. We leave in percisely 25 days and will be there for 10 days/9 nights. The entire trip is paid off, including food, and we’re just responsible for our souvenirs and a couple extras I have planned for the girls. We are all so very excited as when we started the planning, Daisy wasn’t even a twinkle in our eyes and now we get to experience it with her. I have been dreaming of going to Disney World since I caught the Disney bug many moons ago and to see it finally be realized is just amazing.

We’re pretty ready, there are a few more items I need to get, shorts for Chris and I, a few books for all of us, a new Game Boy game for Tabi, a couple DVDs for Daisy, and misc. personal items for travel. We’re also ordering the girls a gift basket with essential items like Disney snacks and light up toys to be delivered to our resort upon our arrival :) I have the girls’ carryon bags all planned out including a personalized coloring book for each of them that I’m putting together. I’ve been printing Disney coloring pages (and activity pages for Tabitha) in secret for weeks. I made personalized covers and am taking all the sheets to Staples for them to be spiral bounded. They will totally love them! Surprise items include Wiggles figures and finger puppets for Daisy and a Disney trivia book for Tabitha.

I’ll admit to be more than a little wary of taking Daisy on a cross-country flight but c’est la vie, we’ll survive. It will all be so worth it!

    You will have a great time! I went to Disney World on a family vacation when I was a freshman in high school, and it was a blast. Tabitha is old enough that she will remember for a long time. I hope Daisy does okay on the plane ride! Take care and have fun!

    Oh Zandra, I am so excited for you guys!! And a bit jealous. LOL Although I admit that I’ve thought about all it would take to get my family to Disney World and I cringe. LOL My kids would love it but I doubt I’d enjoy it much, I would be sooo stressed out! You seem to have everything well planned out and all of the secret gifts are a great idea. I can’t imagine taking an 18 month old across the country but she may surprise you and do wonderfully. Even if she’s not, it’s a small sacrifice to make for such an amazing adventure!! :)
