Heading for the Sunshine State

In a little over two weeks, the kids and I are escaping the cold and miserable winter for Florida.

We’re driving with our friends Guy and Val, who are like family to us.  I’ve known Val since high school and Daryl has known Guy since college.  Daryl is staying home (he doesn’t travel well) but the 7 of us are heading to Val’s parents’ house in Florida and whatever fun we can have along the way.

We’re going to be gone for two weeks, but that includes driving time so it’ll probably be just over a week actually in Florida.

On the agenda…

  • Disney World (probably a day at Magic Kingdom and a day at Epcot, which is what I’ve had the most votes for)
  • At least a day trip to each coast
  • Time with Val’s parents, who are generously giving up their house for our crew to go stay someplace quiet at night

And yes, I know that’s not enough time to properly see Disney, but the cost is just too high for more!  Besides, there’s lot of other fun stuff to cram in.  🙂

I am utterly overwhelmed with planning.  Val has put me in charge of researching everything, reserving everything, etc. because “Alicia’s good at finding deals,” but Disney and Florida are some pretty mind-boggling places to research.  I’ve purchased a membership to Tour Guide Mike’s page on Disney and am just going to figure no matter what it will be magical.

It should be fun!

  1. Great minds think alike 🙂 We are headed to Disney next week! And hopefully a long day at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Such a great time to get away from the humdrum of winter and into the sun! Have fun!
