Disney 30 Days

One month to go.  You already know how much type-a planning I’ve put into this, but to give you an idea of what a truly type-a personality I am (and you really must be to go to Disneyworld), here’s what’s left:

  1. I have to pull the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World apart, almost all 800 pages.  Touring plans, pocket guides, parade viewing spots, fireworks viewing spots, and all manner of tips and tricks will be laminated into folding pocket guides
  2. Check  Orlando weather .  June is tricky in Orlando.  We have to know what to pack 🙂
  3. Reconfirm all resorts and hotel accomodations
  4. Shopping for clothes and shoes that we will need
  5. Reconfirm drive routes – especially for getting out of Chicago, since both the Dan Ryan and the Tri-State will be under construction when we leave.  We’ll have to take Lake Shore Drive through whatever detour route to the Chicago Skyway they have set up, probably through Blue Island.
  6. Charge the iPods
  7. Hold mail
  8. Packing
  9. Haircuts
  10. Take out garbage
  11. Set thermostat
  12. On road by 6:30 AM on our departure day

The good news is that Marla’s aunt and uncle, who live in South Florida, are coming up to Orlando to celebrate Mike and Aaron’s birthday at the character dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern.  Nobody has RSVP’d that they’re coming to Ethan’s birthday party in Savannah, GA.  🙁  I guess nobody likes Chuck E Cheese.
