Fall Break or Bust

I know school just barely started.  L & E have only been back for a little over two weeks.  I know some places haven't even started yet.  But I am in mad Fall Break prep. Why?  We are roadtripping to the Happiest Place on Earth. It's time for the fam to go back to Walt Disney World.  

Minus the station wagon, this will be us in October.  Bonus fun the two little people don't know.  So we are looking at a two day road trip with a 5 year old and a 7 year old who don't know where we are going.  We are armed with DVD players, headphones and will have brand new coloring books and crayons. But I still am totally expecting a lot of..."Are we there yet?" "Where are we going?"  "How much longer" "Mommy, L won't let me play with his superhero/DS" I'm sure you get the idea.  

The last time we went they were three and five, and have been talking about going back non-stop since we left.

 This was the trip that was planned in February to ease my guilt in going to Disney for five, er six days without them.  Thanks Storm Q!  And now we are officially 39 days out.  Yippee!!  But so much to do in so little time.  

ADR's have been booked at our favorite places.  Ohana for breakfast, Cinderella's Royal Table for Dinner.  Date night at Hollywood Studios which will include a visit for the little people to the Sandcastle Club at the Beach Club.  The last time we were there they had so much fun, they actually cried when we got there to pick them up. 

I have now been on a clothes ordering frenzy. Starting to order dresses for E.  Including this little beauty....

Look slightly familiar?  It's from Atutudes and I can not wait to see her in it.  Sort of makes me want to bust out my tutu so we can match.  Ok, not really...but maybe a little.  

The boy is getting a few shirts along these lines.

Since we will be there in October we are also going to go to Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween Party for the first time.  Costumes are lined out.  Sofia for Miss Evangeline (provided we can get it in her size from the Disney Store in time) and the Hulk for L.  

Stroller rental is done, just in case.  Now it's just time to sneak costumes out of the girls closet, let teacher's and attendance know they will be missing some days.  Yep, pulling them out for vacation.  Won't be able to do this too much longer but for now...I think we are good.

I know from here out time is going to fly and I am so excited to go back with the family to play.  Also maybe they won't be as mad at me when I go back for Wine & Dine a few weeks later and then in February for the Glass Slipper Challenge.  

Any words of wisdom for a two day surprise road trip?  Outside of Benadryl? Have you done any surprise trips with your family?
