Default On the Road Again!: trip report

We're back on the road, headed to Disneyworld! We got packed for the most part on Sunday, and finished up early this morning. We hit the road at 2:00, this morning.



This trip just includes Kenneth, Buzz, Dakota, and me. We originally planned to camp in our tent at Fort Wilderness, but had trouble getting the entire week booked there. We ended up getting a one-bedroom at Saratoga Springs - a far cry from sleeping in a tent! It's going to be pretty cool this week - we were prepared for cold-weather camping, too. We had purchased a propane heater, electric mattress pad, electric blanket - none of which we'll need this trip. But, now we're ready to start planning earlier, for next January.

Our good friend, Danita (she went with us in August), is headed down today also. She is traveling with her sister and niece. Even though we're not traveling together, we plan to get together a couple of times this week (we actually added Danita to our reservation, so she can come and go at Saratoga Springs). Tonight, we'll go to dinner at Earl of Sandwich together, and her group will be at Magic Kingdom on Friday (the day that we're going). Kenneth and I weren't planning to go to any parks this time around (our annual passes expired in September), but my sister, Christy, surprised us with two-day passes on Christmas Day. We've decided to go to Epcot on Thursday and Magic Kingdom on Friday. Tomorrow, we are heading over to Tampa to go to an RV show.

Our MagicBands are supposed to be waiting for us at Saratoga Springs (I think we customized them too late to have them sent to our house). We have our fastpass + times picked out already for both of our park days. Oh, and you know that flash drive they send you, to plan for your trip? They're great for loading music onto, for the ride down to Disney.

Safe travels!

We received three of them! We had two days booked at the campground (which we ended up canceling) and got one for that ressie. And, for some reason, we got two for the Saratoga Springs reservation.
