Disney: T-Minus 22 Hours....

In 22 hours, give or take a few minutes from now, I'll be on a plane to Orlando, FL. Sunny Orlando, FL - which is purported to have fantastic weather next week.

I'll be taking my sister Susan and her husband David to Walt Disney World. I've paid for most of their way, making it possible for them to go. This is their first vacation in over 22 years. I'm a combination of excited and nervous.

I'm excited because Susan hasn't seen most of the parks. The first time she went to Disney World was when I was 8 - and she came with us then. The only other time she's been to Disney World was when her daughter was in a band competition that was hosted at Disney. Both of the times she's gone she's only seen Magic Kingdom - that means she still needs to be introduced to Epcot Center, MGM Studious (now being called Disney Hollywood), Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon and Downtown Disney. David has never been to Disney World in his life - and he plans on being a kid the entire time, which is fine by me, so long as he enjoys the experience.

The nervousness has more to do with the fact that I'll be spending an entire week with them when I barely see them less than a handful of times a year. I'm sure everything will be fine though. I'm also somewhat nervous because I'm very certain I'm not prepared for all the walking that will be required between the four parks, the two water parks and Downtown Disney. I did some preliminary walking, but I'm almost certain that wasn't enough. I'll make the best of it for myself though.

However, DISNEY!

I am looking forward to the time of exorcising the demons of Disney 2003 and the bad memories that were created there.

I'm not even going to complain that Disney is not the boat. Hee.

Oh, and I took a break from walking today, which is why you see no post about exercising. I wanted to make sure not to expend all of my energy before I have to take a flight and other sundry stuff I'll be doing tomorrow.

(Note: For those of you who wanted to come, but could not make it, you'll be missed, and those of you in Florida that want to meet up are welcome to do so - please comment here with contact information - comments are being screened. I will be there from June 21st - June 28th)

Woo Disney! I'm jealous that you're getting to do ALL OF IT!
My personal favorites are Epcot (aka The Party Park) and Typhoon Lagood. :D

I'll give you a call with times for Tuesday - I'm thinking Downtown Disney downtime, if you aren't too exhausted from vacationing by then. :)
