There is so much to do to get ready for a big trip like this. After trying to arrange it ourselves, we decided to go to a professional and hired a travel agency to do it for us. Boy, are we ever glad we did that! We started several months ago and the agent has it all set up. We will be flying out of Indy, landing in Florida, taking a Disney shuttle right to our hotel. Our bags will be waiting for us when we check into our room!
We will be staying at the All Star Music Resort right at Disney. Each family has their own room. The hotel itself looks amazing with two pools, a game room and its own restaurant.
I have never been to Disney World before, so I purchased a book: Unofficial Guide, Walt Disney World With Kids 2013, I have been reading that to get tips for how to best see Disney. We will have grandchildren ranging from 10 months to 17 years. The book explained so many things. I now know about the FastPass and what attractions you can see at the last minute. It is a great book.
Our method of transportation to the parks, is a Disney bus. It travels from the hotels to the parks. So, all we need to do is go to the designated spot, get on the bus and hit the park we want!
We have our packets from the agent with all our information in it. We have been watching the weather to checkout what to bring for clothes (HOT)! We have been training to get ready to walk and walk and walk. I have my camera ready to go. Dave is all set up with his favorite Dave-sitter! Now just for those last minute things you have to do to get ready for any vacation!
Disney, Here we come!!!
