So the countdown finally ended on Feb 15, as we headed to the airport. I think I booked this trip back in early September 2008 so the countdown was close to 150 days long.
In those 150 days I booked it, planned it, changed it, re-arranged it, dreamt about it, panicked about it, laughed about it, cried about it, paid for it, and changed it again.
We also decided to go alone, invite my brother and his wife, go alone again, invite our friend Jamie, not invite Jamie, and then finally invite him again.
And after all 150 days it was so nice to hear the hostess greet us at the desk by saying, “Hi Earl, Welcome Home”
And to top it all off, we arrived at 8PM to find out that the Magic Kingdom was on extended hours until 3AM (although we only lasted until around 1AM)
(I’ll add more posts from the entire trip with a few favorite photos but feel free to look at my facebook and flickr for the other 175+ photos.)
PS. For those of you who watch taglines and things like that, I’ll end this post by saying and THAT is why I am “laughing on the inside.” I mean, who wouldn’t be? It IS freakin’ Disney World for Christ’ sake.
