Without a Care in the World – Disney Impromptu

I have been aching badly for a return to Walt Disney World. My last trip was more than a year ago and that’s just waaay too long for me.

I’ve been trying to put something together for months. Looking for an opportunity for that next trip. It just wasn’t coming together though. Each time I thought a vacation might materialize…it didn’t.

But then it happened. Everything fell into place…telling me…now is the time. And when I say now…I mean NOW. I check-in in just two weeks. Exciting…yes!!! Nerve-wracking…um…yes! Doable…yes.

So begins my standard trip check lists. What’s on yours?

Trip Must-dos:
1. Reservations – check-double check!
2. Pack
–a. Suitcases – clothes
–b. Travel bags – toiletries
–c. Backpacks – toys, books, games
–d. Cooler – groceries
–e. Bags – groceries
3. Vehicle ready –

5. Spending $

5. House cleaned

There are two more lists that I need to put together before I go or to make on the drive down. I need to have a list of souvenirs I intend to buy and a list of photos I intend to take. How many lists and/or spreadsheets do you make for your Disney trips?

Looks like there won’t be  much time for blogging these next couple of weeks. Hopefully, I’ll have time for a few live posts while I’m down there though.

Dang! I’m excited!!!!

    Yippee!! Good for you- we love WDW in May because of the (normally) smaller crowds and (normally) less severe heat. Can’t wait to hear all about it :D

    Hoping for those live posts so I can live vicariously through you! Our summer trip can’t get here soon enough, either. Skip down Main Street USA for me!!

    #4 on my Home List just got bumped. What in the world was I thinking? This can wait until I get home. I need to do it right.

    I had to knock the Yard Sale off my list as well. I was trying for last weekend, but it was just going to be too much of an undertaking right before…

    I’m such a list person. I have/had a “To Do Before We Go” list, “To Buy” list, “To Pack” list, a list for each person for what needed to be packed for them, a “Carry-on” list. I have lists of things I want to try to do or see in each park, including looking for certain souvenirs or snacks…

    I think I may be a little OCD…

    Woohoo, congrats on your trip! I’m like you and Bird; I need a bunch of lists for my Disney trips. Can’t plan a trip without them!

    Coming back to check my progress. Not sure how I can be working so hard and accomplishing so little. It will all come together though…I just know it!
