Hello everyone! asking for prayers and pixie dust as we prepare for our trip. I am so nervous to leave the house after being robbed but we cant cancel the trip. Anyone have an experience with this or have tips to help me relax and have a good time? I should be SO EXCITED we are going to Disney soon but I am so sad its taken the happiness away. We all still need to pack and do last minute shopping. Thanks for any advice andor prayers you have for me.

Tell a neighbor you trust you'll be gone and ask them to walk around your house once a day, also provide them your cell number. Then you can bring them a thank you gift back. Leave out door lights as we'll as a few inside lights on. Call your local police dept and tell them you'll be out of town and you'd like to request extra patrol. - DonaldfiveO  28.6 #132 4:11AM
Great suggestions..thanks! I am also having my parents come over a few times each day to walk my dog and get the mail etc.. - ncjal  260.1 #28 4:48AM
It's a scary and stressful situation , my house got broken into when I was 17 and it was such a violation , but though you will change certain ways now don't hide out and be scared of everything because that will just one more thing they stole and you need to refuse to let them win , for now look forward to getting away and focus on that and enjoying yourself , sending lots of pixie dust:) - tracsant  1176.7 #2 3:51AM
Thank you Tracy. I appreciate the advice. - ncjal  260.1 #28 3:56AM
It's hard to get over the feeling of being violated and the worry it will happen again. It's good that your parents will be checking frequently. Please try to relax and have fun! - ally  509.2 #13 4:55AM
Praying for travel mercies and that you have a wonderful trip. - MsMode  27.4 #135 5:09AM
I'm praying for u. Sorry u had to go through that - Tazhalo  72.8 #81 5:09AM
Prayers for you and your family. It is difficult to get over the feeling but I have my mom check the house when we are gone. Trust in your parents they will have in under control. Pixie dust for safe travels and a magical trip! ✨✨✨ - kayxobelle  220.2 #35 5:26AM
I say. Dont worry about things you cannot control. just focus on what you can do to prevent bad stuff from happening and enjoy your trip. - athica  12.9 #207 5:27AM
I know ho We stressed you must feel and no doubt I would be the same way. This sucks that it happened so close to your trip! I am sending up prayers and flinging as much pixie dust as I can your way! This trip is going to be so worth it and magical! - girlonfire  54.1 #97 6:04AM
I'm so sorry this happened to you. Pixie dust and prayers to you and your family. I hope everything turns out ok for you. Wish u the best in WDW enjoy have fun. I'm just glad everyone is ok. - yessy  213.8 #38 6:18AM
Sorry this happened to you. Have you ever considered an alarm system for the house? Not as expensive per month as you would think - Bakerjars  240.0 #31 7:13AM
Also if you have an alarm call the company and let them know you will be away, get some timer outlets for your lamps so they come on at different times during the evening hours, and if you can have a car parked in the driveway- enjoy your trip! - LateforWonderland  21.7 #156 7:58AM
When I went to Hawaii a few months ago the night before we had to leave (5am flight) we had a flood! Now I know it's not the same but It was still a stressful situation that could have ruined our trip, but once we got there the worries went away (for the most part) the best advice I can give you is just remember your kids and how good a Disney trip will be for them right now. I know if I was young and my house was broken I'd want to be out of the house for a while and I think Disney is the perfect place for that! Ask a friend or family member to stop by your house every once and a while, maybe have them turn different lights on or put music on once and a while so no one notices an empty house! - allieenicolee  16.1 #183 8:09AM
Nicole - you and your family are in my thoughts! I hope your trip is magical! I'm sure as time gets closer you will get more and more excited. We always have someone come to our house at least every other day and we have lights on a timer so they aren't always on, I think that's a red flag. - DizneyGirl  731.2 #7 8:46AM
I am so sorry Nicole that this happened to you and your family. It is a scary situation. I don't know if you have a home alarm but my husband bought one from Home Depot that is wireless and it is not that expensive. We put it in a home we moved out of that still has some of our stuff in it. It did get broken into but the alarm went off and I think it scared them off because everything was still intact. The neighbor called and let us know the side door was open. So it is good that you have some going to check it out. Go and have a magical time and leave your worries behind.

I dont think itll hurt to ask your local police station to drive by nighly to make sure everythings ok and scare off wanderers. Im pretty sure theyll understand why your scares to go on vacation and that theyd help!!! - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #96 9:11AM

There are 100's of people standing at bag check. Lines backed up to La Brea Bakery. They've stopped people here to herd over people already in DCA over to DL. And, we see 100's of those folks standing at the gates.  - thompsonsyl  5.2 #16921 2:36AM
