    Can't sleep, driving to L.A. tomorrow :)

    My stuff is all packed, I'm ready to go.
    Just one problem : I'm not going to be able to sleep I am so stressed out for this trip.
    First time getting a hotel, first time getting parkhoppers, and first time eating at Blue Bayou!
    It's very daunting being without your parents for a 5 day vacation when you're only 20 and living at home, but exciting nonetheless
    I just hope nothing goes horribly wrong, and I'll be happy.

    Anybody else getting excited for their upcoming trip and/or can't sleep?! Or remember a time when you were?

    This is most of the stuff in my room right now. It's safe to say most everything I'm packing has Disney written all over it.

    Aww, don't be stressed! You're going to have so much fun! Think of it as an adventure (I'm hoping to make my first adventure a year and a half from now when I'm old enough)

    If there's one thing I learned from all these vacations with my family it's stand your ground and have tons of fun! Congrats on your first adult trip, enjoy the Blue Bayou, and check it Cars Land and BVS when they open. Safe travels to you and your boyfriend

    The shirts are very cute. Blue Bayou should be lots of fun. I haven't been there in years.

    I can never sleep the night before a trip. I typically just look through MiceChat and listen to Disney music. You know to get my geek on. :P

    I hope you have a fun trip! Take lots of pictures!

    I've pretty much given up on sleeping the night before a Disney vacation. Just try to embrace the anticipation. It's part of the fun. And take lots of pictures and post them here.

    Update: I did end up getting sleep, but I woke up about a zillion times. I think tonight, the night before I go to the media preview, will be far worse but we'll see.

    and yes, I plan on posting pictures here! especially on preview day sounds like fun

    You must be on your way by now but I know how you feel.
    On our last trip in Spet, we planned on getting up at 1:00 AM to start the 18+ hour drive. We went to bed early in preparation but I didn't sleep a wink the whole evening. Finally at 12:30 AM I got up and said "Lets go!".
    Hope you have a safe trip and a wonderful time.

    As someone who has stressed, worried and fretted about things all my life - my advice would be to let it all go so it doesn't take away any of the enjoyment of this vacation. Being calm and well-rested will make for a more enjoyable vacation. Have a wonderful vacation and make some beautiful memories.

    Hey, everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster.

    greeeneyes, I feel you. At least you're going this week. I'm super excited for my trip but that's not until next May! I have nearly a year to sit and dwell on it...

    We are driving up tonight after traffic dies, only about 50 miles away but that 5-10-101 interchange really sucks before 7pm. Hope to get 2 hours in at Disney Land before it closes before going back to the hotel (or DTD but can't stay up too late so we can get in line before 7am)

    20? I think you will be fine, its not like you're going to the middle east or something. I'll say hello if I see your shirts. What is the anticipated crowds at opening? I'd love to sleep in later but I'm thinking of getting there early.
