It’s off to Disney World we go!! Tomorrow is THE big day. I am so excited. Hubz and I packed and managed to get all of our stuff into 2 suitcases and 3 carry-ons! Go us!! It helps that Florida is warm and we don’t have to pack sweaters and tons of pants!
I think the boys are getting excited. Jake keeps asking about rides that he remembers from our trip in 2009. Tate smiles when we talk about it. He gets excited when he sees us get excited. Cole is pumped about Mickey. He can’t wait.
Hubz and I are taking it as it comes. We have a few reservations for character meals, and we planned our park visits around those. We are attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party on Sunday. It is going to be beyond awesome. I just know it! We are thinking the pool will be a hit, too. Luckily, Florida is having a warm spell, so it should be warm enough for a dip.
Finally, we packed Tate’s diagnosis papers in our carry-on. Those puppies are coming with me to the Guest Services area so that we can get our Guest Assistance Card. I challenge anyone who questions our using that gem to stand in line with Tate for more than 5 minutes. Seriously, bring it.
I also have it in case we get any resistance at the airport. Like if he starts acting out or something. We don’t fly
much at all, really, so I am not sure how it will go. We have talked about it, but we’ll see for certain tomorrow. I figure having his Dx with us at least gives us some proof of his behavior.
Finally, I ordered some of those Safety Tats that have a puzzle piece (most people recognize that as Autism),and it says that “I have Autism”, along with our cell #…God forbid Tate walks off or gets lost. Those are supposed to come in the mail today. Hope so, cuz if not, I need to put something on him so people know what they are getting into if he gets lost. Hubz didn’t really want them, but I feel better knowing it’s on our Tater.
Have a great few days! Hopefully I will come back with some good stories and memories of our Family Vacation Extravaganza 2011.
