    The countdown for our trip next week is going waaaaaaayyyyyy too slow. Every once in a while(about 3x a day) I come on here and check my countdown timer and it doesnt seem to be moving quickly enough. I want the next couple of days to fly by and that doesnt seem to be happening.
    My kids have no idea that we are going to WDW, they think we are going to Hershey Park. I have a feeling that my 10 year old daughter will figure it out before my sone does. He will have his face buried in his video games or his kindle while my daughter will be hounding me with "Are we close yet" and "how much longer".
    I just looked at my countdown and it hasnt moved much .....just saying

    Are you driving down from NYC? I don't think Hershey would take too long would it? About the time you hit the NJ Turnpike I would think that one of them would have it figured out.

    We are driving from NYC. Hershey is about 3 and a half hours away from us. We will be leaving about 3 am so they will sleep to about 7am. They will most certainly figure it out at some point but they made the drive a bunch of times and I would venture to guess they have no idea which highway we take to get to WDW or Hershey. My money is on my daughter figuring it out first, my son....yeah not so much.

    Time is certainly dragging here! We didn't tell the kids last time we went. Drove away from charleston, SC telling the kids we were going to the beach in Georgia for a few days, they were crying as they wanted to stay there! We crossed into Florida and Daniel guessed but he kept the secret.Caitlin didn't realise till we saw the signs on the I4
