I don't think I can do enough happy dances.

Our last trip was December 2006 and we'll be going this December. I'm so excited.

Disney World I take it since you're closer to that one? :yay: I've only been to Disneyland, but it's cool, too. ;)

Yes, Disney World. Sorry. I've never been to Disneyland. I'm afraid I'd be disappointed in Disneyland.

7 nights 8 days. Oh I have too much time on my hands planning.

Piece of advice: NEVER to tell a 3 yrs old you are going to Disney 10 months in advance. This has been a week from he!!. He asks no less than 20 times and that only doubles if we get in the car. :doh:

Well, I don't think you'd be disappointed, but it is smaller. They do have a lot of the same rides though.

Make or get a calendar and let him mark off each day until it's time to go. At 3 they are usually old enough to do that and it lets him see that it's still far away right now, but it will closer and closer as he marks off the days. When a month goes by and he can flip or remove the page he'll be excited! You could also use stickers for each day. Good learning experience!

:teehee: Great minds.

At first we showed him it was 10 calendar pages away. Then that didn't help. So I made him a calendar. We put stickers on the week we are going.

I like the idea of him crossing off a day. I'm afraid for my walls. :ick:
