I'm hoping you get the first option in your travel plans. I hate the idea of mailing something so important and then just *waiting.* That has ended up badly for me too many times. If you end up mailing the passport and waiting, I wish you the best of luck!
I've never seen the video you mentioned, though I've passed it many times. Now I just may have to take a gander. *smile*
