Wow! We leave tomorrow for 8 glorious nights and 9 amazing days in Disney World! 'Excited' doesn't cut it! We can't wait to step into our home away from home, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas and start our next adventure!
As this is my last post before the trip, I thought I'd list the top 10 things I'm looking forward to trying/re-doing at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I'm planning to take a break from blogging while on vacation, but you can follow my live tweets starting tomorrow at @DreaminofAKV.

Before I was "DisneyMommy", my husband and I went on a few Disney vacations by ourselves. Any true Disney fan knows you don't need kids to enjoy the World, right? You remember those trips, don't you? The kind where you can stay in the parks all day and watch all the parades without rushing back in the afternoon for nap time? Or the kind where you can stay out late and enjoy Fastasmic or appreciate the increased fright factor of riding the Hollywood Tower of Terror in the moonlight? But I digress... my husband and I have many great memories of our Walt Disney World (WDW) trips without kids, but one in particular stands out:
