Welcome to my refuge :)

Disney has become a daily retreat for me. We may only spend 10 days there a year (more if I'm truly blessed), but I have found that making Mickey a part of my daily life makes me feel much better. So I'm running with it! Luckily I have a patient husband and a laptop computer that allows me to do endless searching and planning. This blog is developing out of that. You are welcome to come along for the ride and offer your advice. I don't claim to be an expert, just a lover of the experience!

Right now whenever a post says "Update" that means it is a 2011 trip update and if you click on the tab with that date on it you can read that update.

How Did That Happen?

     It has been quite a week. A lot has been going on in my life. So much so that I missed a very momentous occasion. We went under 300 this week. That's right- as of today we are 297 days away from hanging with the Fab Five in Orlando. I still can't believe I missed it.
    As I said I've been quite busy and haven't had nearly enough Mickey time this week. I did receive two new books I'm excited about using in my planning. One is PassPorter's Walt Disney World 2010: The Unique Travel Guide, Planner, Organizer, Journal, and Keepsake. It's going to come in really handy as I organize things along the way. It has these great pockets for each day of the trip. It was a great find on Swap.com.
     Another excellent Swap.com find was The Unofficial Guide Walt Disney World 2010. This is one of the most detailed books I've ever seen. I've only begun to look at this very thorough book but I'm learning a great deal. One of my favorite bonuses of this book is that with it you get a 50% discount at TouringPlans.com. At this site, you can print out plans for touring the parks plus you can have wait times for the rides sent to your phone.
Even though I didn't get much Mickey time this week, I do have my new class of kids convinced that I am in love with the mouse! Every time he makes an appearance in our room, someone will say " You really do like Mickey Mouse!"

I'm glad they caught on so quickly!
