Walt Disney World around the corner

Later this week I'll be heading to Walt Disney World with my pal Melinda, and I'm super excited! This will be my fourth trip to Orlando, and I've always had magical adventures with family and friends (for the record, the first was with Chris & Eliza, the second with Jonathan, the third with Mom & Dad, and the fourth with Melinda). As usual, I've been working out every detail of the itinerary for the past several weeks, using excellent sites like TourGuideMiKE and the fairly new Disney Mom's Panel. The biggest new experience for this trip will be Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom, featuring a special parade (with the Headless Horseman!), Halloween fireworks, trick or treating, and of course, the opportunity to keep riding attractions until midnight! I'm also looking forward to some great Disney eating, since our vacation package included the Disney Dining Plan for free. It's going to be an amazing adventure, so get ready for lots of tweets from the parks!
