Our Trip 2012

I started this blog as a countdown to our 2012 trip and also as a resource for others who love Walt Disney World.  I began the countdown at 371 days.  It's hard to believe that the trip is now over BUT the memories and the pictures live on!  I hope you enjoy the pictures and the memories.

PreTrip and Road Trip.

Mickey Mouse Pancakes

Our bags are packed and the van is loaded!  Departing home at 7:10...only 10 minutes late.  A new record.

Our first stop...Anna IL...a whopping 45 minutes after our trip started!  Making great time already.

Kentucky rest stop.
Music City Baby!!!!
Going through Atlanta
Our first hotel in Macon GA.

Not so sunny today.  May 28.
and since it was Memorial Day NO FREE OJ!!!!
After some 900 miles...We finally ARRIVED!!!!!

I know the overall goal of the vacation is to get to where you are going but there is something magical and exciting about the journey.  I've always loved staying in different hotels and watching the miles tick away and it's great sharing those moments with my family.  The kids love elevators, free breakfasts, Mad Libs, Joker's Run and rooms that connect with Grandma and Grandpa's room.   Stay tuned for our trip to Downtown Disney.

Focused on the Magic

Thanks V. I always go through a Disney depression after the trip but going through the pictures and memories really helps!!! Hope you enjoy.

Love the anticipation of the trip down and then the excitement when you see the sign and know you are on Disney property!

I love those Mickey pancakes - perfect way to start a roadtrip to Disney World!

Great pics! I did many road trips with my family when I was a kid and we always had such a fun time. I think my kids are missing out - time to schedule a trip to WDW via car!

I totally agree! Something about a Disney road trip. Love it. The ride home though...just not as magical. At all.

There's still a couple of square inches to try and pack something else in the back of that van if you want. Or is that the room you left open for souvenirs?
Looking forward to reading about the rest of your trip.
