Oh, he's a keeper! Mine thinks I'm OCD when I bring the suitcases out a few weeks before a trip. laugh

I like the idea of doing MVMCP on the arrival day. Sounds like a fun way to start the trip!

I was just told yesterday that maybe I should start working on the packing...but even though we're homebound because of Sandy I still probably won't get to it today...but hubby is fretting over it waiting ...haha.

We went in 2010 for our babymoon and loved it!...hopefully we can have just as good of an experience with our toddler this time crossfingers ...but it will definitely be in my trip report.

It's the only day we could have done it while we're down there as well...I had no idea they didn't have it the entire week of Thanksgiving when I booked our trip. Since we arrive there early I figured we could nap, enjoy the afternoon at PORS and then head on over for some magic Big smile

I definately recommend a nap. I went to MVMCP last year on my first day. I was up at 3:30 that morning, went straight to Epcot after checking in at Pop, followed by dinner at Chef Mickey's and then the party. I didn't get back to Pop until midnight. It made for a very long day.

Great plans!! And I would have started packing 6 months ago...but that's just me. I've heard I might be a tad OCD....

I love lunch at the Yak & Yeti - you will have such a greet time!
