advice, please?

If you were 20 years old and still lived at home, would you feel you need to have your parents permission to go to Disney World with your significant other?

Although I still live under "their roof", I don't think an-almost-21 year old adult should be treated like a child. They allow my 17 year old brother to go to keg parties and sleep over friends houses (with girls present), yet i'm older and am not allowed to take a short trip to Disney World with my boyfriend? Instead of he and I exchanging gifts for the holidays this year, we want to save for a trip there instead in early January for two nights. Plus, he just got a car so we could drive up there ourselves (which will be an issue with my parents, as well). I plan to approach my mom in a way where I will not be asking her, but telling her my plans, yet I still feel like she and my father have a say in this.

How do I stand up to my parents and not take 'no' for an answer if I feel like I am entitled to this and not being unreasonable? It's not like I want to go out of state (I live about 3 1/2 hrs away from Orlando) or to mardi gras or anything.
