The girls made their Disney countdown chain this past weekend. It’s something they used to do when they were younger, and they decided to bring back the traditional for our upcoming trip. So, there is a 25 foot construction paper chain adorning the stairway. I never expected to see one of those again, so it was a nice surprise. It’s amazing how little things like that become so significant as the years tick by. We got to finish the dining reservations, too…..Boma, Chef Mickeys, 1900 Park Fare, Crystal Palace….and a few other favorites. The girls have even started debating about what rides we are going on first…..and this is always a hot subject. Cara and Caylie are adrenaline junkies……..Emi, not so much. She draws the line at Test Track. That’s about all the speed she needs. As for me, I’ll do a little of both but mostly I’ll be sitting on a bench in the Italian Pavilion in Epcot (where I took this picture), having an espresso and pastry….. and waiting for Illuminations to start.
