Coded for Worship

T Minus 11 Days

with one comment

In 11 days, the family will be in Orlando, Florida for a summer vacation at Walt Disney World. We are staying on-site, so coupled with the fact that we are flying, we won’t have to do ANY driving until we get back to the airport and head home.

I can’t wait and I certainly know my wife can’t wait. She’s had a very difficult year as a first-year teacher and I’ve put a lot on her with all that I’ve gone through. She deserves this and it will be a nice way to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary just a little early.

We’ll be flying to Orlando via Southwest Airlines from Nashville, Tennessee. We’re leaving early on the morning of June 1st and getting home the evening of June 5th. We are staying at Disney’s Pop Century Resort for 5 days and 4 nights. So far, we’re looking most-forward to riding Soarin’, the all-new Toy Story Mania, and all of the character dining we have booked. To top it all off, on our last evening there, we’ll be attending Mickey’s Pirate and Princess Party.

We thought about trying to slip away to Universal or some other attraction in Orlando on our last day — but we decided to spend our last day at Downtown Disney.

We’ve done most of our shopping and gotten our packing lists ready, but we’ve done little to no packing and I don’t really know when we will start. This will be the first time we will have flown since 9/11 and our daughter’s first flight as well. My biggest decision will be what to take with me on my carry-on and what to put in check luggage.

A more detailed post will come later — but, I just want to thank the Lord for my wife, the planning guru.

  1. If she’s comfortable with it, be sure to have your daughter ask to visit the flight deck to meet the Captain and First Officer when you board your flight. Southwest’s pilots are very nice and (in my experience) always happy to take a couple minutes to create a special memory for kids, especially on their first flights. It’s a wonderful experience (take pictures!!).

    As for what you should pack in your carry-on, I recommend sunscreen (as much as you can get through the TSA times 3), swim gear, your camera and your walking shoes (may not be the same as your traveling shoes).

    My family and I attended Pirates and Princesses a few weeks back. It wasn’t cheap, but it was worth it.

    Enjoy your trip!!
