    Default The One Month Countdown

    Okay, so at times, months have 31 days, so I am starting this one month countdown today, even though "officially", tomorrow is the one-month-to-go date.

    So here is your trivia for this day:
    1 month 19 hours 7 minutes 40 seconds or
    4 weekends or
    31 days or
    739 hours (493 waking hours) or
    44,347 minutes or
    2,660,859 seconds
    to go...

    Trivia for the day:

    Stroll around Liberty Square and take note of the doors which all have a two-digit number on them. They are designed to look like street addresses, however, if you put an "18" in front of the number, you will know the year that style of house would have been popular.. . One other fact... the date over the entry door to the Hall of Presidents is the year the US Constitution was ratified.

    ICOT-15:
    29 days 6 hours 24 minutes 13 seconds or
    4 weekends or
    29 days or
    702 hours (468 waking hours) or
    42,144 minutes or
    2,528,652 seconds

    Your trivia for the day: Since some of you are starting off on Thursday at Animal Kingdom

    When you go make sure you rest on one of the many benches around the park. Disney is big on sustainability, so all of the benches in Disney's Animal Kingdom are made of recycled milk jugs.

    Have a great day!

    It's now less than a month to go!!! As of tomorrow it will be 4 weeks until my trip! I'm so excited to be going by myself this time! Not that I wouldn't love to have hubby and son along with me, but it's been a long time since I've had a vacation that doesn't have to cater to anyone but me! I won't have to rush out of a park because my kid doesn't like fireworks, I don't have to answer the question, "So what are we doing for dinner?" Just me, taking care of my desires, while hanging with good friends. (Happy sigh)

    Yeah, you just have to deal with me for four days.

    I like fireworks though and only ask what's for dinner once per day.

    Trivia for the day: Pay attention to the street lamps down Main Street. They begin as gas lamps near the Emporium, but by the time you reach Casey’s corner restaurant they have progressed to electric lamps – you have been moving through time.

    27 days 5 hours 15 minutes 57 seconds or

    Countdown trivia of the day:
    Many of the fantasy land attractions fronts were not finished when Disneyland opened in California in 1955. So, banners and decorative tents were used to cover the unfinished parts on opening day – that is how the medieval fair theme came about in Fantasyland.
