When we step off the plane, and go on the train ride to the luggage side of the airport,and take a deep breath,we are THERE!!!!
For my kids, it's those purple gates near DTD, they love that moment,and they're not little kids, they're "old" kids!:p They like stay within the purple gates till we HAVE to leave again......
If we're driving, vacation starts as soon as we are in the vehicle and the voice on the GPS says "proceed to highlighted route."
If we are flying (which we consider to be a chore), vacation begins when we receive our check-in packet at the desk of our resort.
The MOMENT we are out the front door in California, we are on our vacation. Every minute from that point until we arrive at EPCOT (our favorite) is spent discussing what we want to do in all 4 parks.
And the vacation does not end until we show the pictures to the family back home!
I like to stretch it out as long as possible. The whole planning stage starts our vacation. I love the planning part:
Cost is a big factor in deciding whether or not you want to make a trip to Florida to experience Disney World. I have personally spent a whole lot of money traveling there, and did not feel at any time that I wasted my money. Vacations to Disney World are not cheap. You can vacation many other places for a lot less money. Finding out exactly what a trip would cost you is an important first move. A natural 2nd move would be to start saving, and pick a date that fits in with your savings plan. I will start saving money and then will make a trip . I want to enjoy the wonderful experience & wants to have a memorable scrapbook.

For me it begins the night before we leave the house. (Which coming from the UK or France is usually two nights before we actually fly out). We pack the car then go out for our first dinner of the holiday at home. When I take that first sip of the first glass of wine that is me on holiday.
