Disney, here we come... 40 days, anyway.

So it's been a few months. Disney is paid off. We scored free dining, too. I have made a few changes along the way.

We now leave October 18th, and do not return until October 28th. We are going to spend 2 days with my FIL on the gulf coast first- he's excited to show us around, and is already planning meals!

We will be at Disney from October 20-28th, though the 28th is not much. We have to be up and on the bus to the airport by 6am. Yuck!!  But overall, it gives us 8 full days at Disney. That is a LOT.

I can't wait. It's really happening. :)

Now what I am doing is saving up spending money. Our hotel, 2 meals and 1 snack per day, our park tickets, and even our Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party tickets are all paid off. I'm planning to stop at a grocery store on Sunday before my FIL takes us to Disney and do some grocery shopping for the room. Nothing real big, but definitely some healthier options for us- fruit, granola bars, yogurt, etc.

Oh, and alcohol. Yes, yes, I would like to grab a bottle of rum or schnapps, so my aunt and I (did I mention she is tagging along?) can have a drink or two around the pool without going broke.

We have Halloween costumes either bought or planned. My oldest is going to be the Cheshire Cat, and has her costume. My youngest is going to be Alice in Wonderland- we need to find a costume locally, I did not have any luck with Etsy for her. I am going as Minnie Mouse, and I have my costume already! It's a fun swing style dress in red with white polka dots. Then, my friend who runs a theater department scored me a huge white square dance dress to wear under it :)

I can't wait.
