Hi All,
Glad to see our "F"ine group hasn't been "dis" banded. We all need to stick together. Speaking about sticking together I have to share something I found the other day.

Now isn't that the coolest stuff you ever saw. I got it at Michaels.
Haven't decided how I will use it but knowing me I will come up with something:rolleyes1

I did not get a chance to get the names and time of those of you that had ADR's close to our times. There was one at the Rose & Crown at 6:30 and another member had a 4:00 Mama Melrose ressie. PM me so i can be sure to take that info with me.

One of Del's employees is at WDW NOW. He sent a pic via the phone of the castle at MK. Del is going to take a pic of his empty chair with a sign in it that says, "Wish you were here!" and send that to him.:lmao: :rotfl2:

Oh well enough for now.

How cool-lime green duck tape! I use duck tape on my fingers when I get warts. Yes, I walk around with duck tape on my fingers sometimes. I think it would be fun to wear the official lime green color.

my kids know all about that, they are really hoping for some good antics when we go, but I told them not to get there hopes up to high, I would hate for the to be disappointed if we don't get a good waiter or waitress. I might tell them when we check in for dinner that we want someone who will really do alot of antics.

Last time there I said..."We'd like to be in the middle of the action." and boy were we. We had a ball. The best was the set up phone call by my oldest son's GF to him during dinner. The waitress hushed the restaurant with a "QUIET, HE'S ON THE PHONE" at the top of her lungs. Then she takes the phone and passes it around the entire restaurant so everyone could say hi ! The GF was in on it. The son realized at the end he got severly Punk'd.

Good times will ensue. Maybe you and I can do the Pony Race ???? :lmao:

We'll be in MK on the 26th! It's and EMH morning, though, so I think we'll be riding at 9:00am...If we're close to the statue, we'll stop by to say hi!

ProudMomTo3Boys, me too!! Mine are 9, 6 and 2 - I'm sure they'd have a ball with your three! :cool1:

not to cause a stir and I'll still try to be there at 9am
but how did that time get decided? would it be better to meet in the afternoon when we're not all trying to run off to get the bigger rides done? and how did that ride get decided?

I can't answer everything, maybe not even correctly...:rotfl: BUT the morning so everyone else has the day to do what they wish, jungle cruise because it isn't going to scare the little ones, and we can hang out, take pics. as far as deciding some one suggested and no one disagreed :goodvibes jen

Can't wait to meet everyone!!

Zdad, I am wondering how many LGMHPC's I should l make for the meet.. If you could contact me that would be GREAT! :hug:

We have kids. Del's are 45, 43, and 39. Mine are 32 and 30. Of course you probably meant the ones attending with us. In that case we will have none. Del wasn't so sure he wanted his kids ages known but that is ok. He was just a babe himself when he started his family. When he started having kids he was Chinese. (Far-too-young) :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

This pic is of us at our wedding with our kids.

It started as a small meet....LaraK, *MickeyFan*, and Zdad. 9am was the best time that didn't interfere with that groups ADRs and other plans for the day. Others kept adding on, but we thought best to keep the same basic time. JC because it seems a ride as crazy as the rest of us. Any JC boat captian would fit right in with us.

Mine are 5.5 and 2.5 :flower3:

Zdad, I am wondering how many LGMHPC's I should l make for the meet.. If you could contact me that would be GREAT! :hug:

It's my intention to summarize the attenance list this weekend and ship out the particulars via regular e-mail. That should give an indication of total numbers.

3 weeks exactly till we fly ! :banana:

newholidayx2
03-31-2007, 05:15 AM
thanks and yes Jungle Cruise does make sense. Those boats can fit alot more of us than a 2-4 person seat.

Another question though - have we decided we'll do Standby? Therefore anyone who'll be there for EMH can grab a different ride fastpass?

20 more days for me - getting excited here! good thing I have my friends at the gym to bounce my excitement off of - Last night those poor ppl had me singing and dancing to Off Kilter! lol

Most think that JC opens @ 10, so after a few pics and a short walk there, we'd actually arrive ~10 minutes before opening. With that we figured we'd just queue up and save a FP for another ride.

Our plan for the am is to be there for the rope drop, head directly to Space Mountain for a ride and a FP, then maybe something yummy at the Main St. Bakery (if we have time), then off to the Dis Meet.

We're actually talking packing strategy, so it must be close. This is going to be so cool. A week alone, just me & the Mrs. :banana: :cool1:

03-31-2007, 09:45 AM
We have been talking packing strategy too, in fact hubby is gonna get the suitcases out today. I am gonna wash all the kids shorts and stuff this weekend, they have been up in the attic all winter ( the shorts and stuff, not the kids ). Now that tomorrow is April it really seems real now.

03-31-2007, 09:53 AM
yup its definately getting real now - time to at least go through the Disney boxes and start repacking that stuff! Time to think about what Im wearing when. Easter wknd I want to get alot of the packing done *** the wknd before Im planning on spending the time w/DS14 as he's staying home w/dad (both by choice). Just me, myself and I this trip and looking forward to it.

Well yesterday I washed all the shorts and tshirts that were up in the attic. Today I folded them and packed the shorts only. Kids are wearing the tshirts as we have been having pretty mild weather. I also packed up all the extra shoes and bathing suits, but now I am sad I have nothing left to pack until the day before. But hey only 21 days til we travel so can't be too sad right?

Make sure your DD wears shoes with thick soles! She'll make it !!

Alright, everyone, the weather-watch begins today! I love the last couple weeks before a trip to WDW-I have a ritual every morning. I go to accuweather and get the weather report in WDW for whatever days it has up. Then I check it against what I'm planning to do that day. For example, if accuweather says it's going to rain hard, but I was planning to go to AK, I might have to adjust my plans. Of course, the weather forecast changes as the time gets closer, so I have to look at all the days and refigure every morning. Whew! A lot of work, but so fun!

*MickeyFan*
04-08-2007, 10:50 PM
I try not to think about the weather, DH and I have poncho's from our trip in 2003. If it ends up raining at all we will just buy the kids some when we are there:) Do keep us posted though! Hope everyone had a Wonderful Easter!!
I have a question... How many "name tags" should I make? will DSpouse, DD, & DS's wear them? :woohoo: TWO WEEKS!!!!:woohoo:

Zdad,

You feeling better ?????

Yea...some. Eyelashes are still "sore", but over the fever and the head feeling the size of a medicine ball part. Back to work today, but working from home tomorrow. (YEA!)

Posting again, which always makes me feel better. (Sitting in sweats and under a comforter, and still mot being warm kinda sucks.)

11 days to go until we fly. I am really looking forward to meeting everybody. I promise to be healthy by the 26th !!! :)

Hey guys! I can't believe we didn't bring any newbies into the meet being over here:confused3 Anyway, it's getting close!! I am soo excited to meet all of you! I was wondering if anyone was interested in going in on a photo pass cd, since we will all be there around the same time and all. I would love to cut the cost with at least one DISer. Let me know if you are interested :goodvibes

Hey Jen,
How many photopass ID numbers can we add? My DD and her family are there now and we go in less than 2 weeks so we were going to add our Id to theirs. If it will allow us to add yours too, you are more than welcome to add it to ours. Is there a limit on the number of pics they will allow on a CD?

Hi Judy~ I believe we can have up to 10 photo pass ID's on one account. The only thing is we can't look at them online until the cards are under one account (hope that makes sense), so I can't open a seperate account to look at them and then give you my ID to add to your DD's. From what I am told there doesn't seem to be a limit for how many pictures you can get on a cd only that a cd holds 300. so if we go over 300 then they will send two. Does your DD or family member know how to copy cd's? Most people go in on the cd and either put their photo's on the computer or print them off then send the cd to the next guy, or the person that gets the cd in the mail makes copies to send out.
Once your DD has say my numbers she has to email me with her account (user name and password) info so i can look at my pictures and add borders or what not to them before she sends out for the cd. I hope I am not confusing you!! Let me know if any of my rambling makes sense! :goodvibes jen

I am usually technically astute, but I have no idea how the photopass thing works. I wouldn't mind going in on it with ya, but what's it involve, what do we get, etc?

When ever you get your picture taken by a CM they will ask you for your photo pass card (You will get one from the first CM that takes your picture). You can get all the pictures that were taken from your trip on one cd (300 pics per cd) for $125.oo One person checks in all the id numbers (I have heard that you can have up to 10 ID numbers (off the back of the card) to one account. then all the people involved can look at the pictures and add borders or what not then the person that set up the account sends out for the cd, from there the person that is in charge makes copies for everyone, or passes the cd along to everyone so they can put them on their computers. After you get the cd you own the rights to all your pictures, printing out what you want and how many you want. Does that make sense? jen

Jen,
I'll check with DD and get back with you.
We are expecting up to a foot of snow tonight and tomorrow. It suppose to be in the 50's and 60's on Sat. and Sun. Then more snow again on Tue. or Wed. Sure hope it doesn't end up like the blizzards we had in Dec. this is a link to a photoshow I made of the FIRST Blizzard and then we had another one a week later. If the link thing doesn't work then you can just copy and paste to the address line.

http://photoshow.comcast.net/viewshow/Yq9tk6Vi

It has sound too but you can turn it off, it gets old after a while. They don't have the greatest selection of songs to choose from.

By the time the 22nd gets here we will definately be ready for some HOT HOT HOT weather.

The meet was a blast! So glad we could all get together. The Jungle Cruise was a scream. Finally, as we were walking out of the park that afternoon, the Photopass photographer girl saw us and yelled across the entrance to us gicing us the Focker Watch sign. She thought we were all great fun.

I'll post some pics when I can get organized in the next few days. Maybe even a trip report !

Got home about midnight Fri night. Did the laundry yesterday, today need to go grocery shopping.

It was nice to meet everyone. Hope you all had fun on the Jungle Cruise. Pirates was open when I was walking through Adventureland even though its not on the early open attraction list so I hopped on that.
Left MK about 1pm, stopped at the Poly for a Lapu Lapu and then over to my "men in skirts" in Canada where I spent the rest of the day.

The week went too fast but by the end I thought it was best if I got my body out of the world. Lol I'll be back in Aug w/DS15 and then for another solo in Nov.

Take care everyone and Id love to see the photos

I was happy for them and although they had already been on most of the rides, they really didn't use them, only 1 I think, but they are gonna make great souveniers.

I can also send this one to anyone that wants it in a larger size too. Had to reduce this pic to fit the size limitations. The one on the photopass shows the entire castle.

Love the new siggy picture! When we go in October we won't be bringing DS, he didn't enjoy himself like we thought he would. He had gone last year, and we thought it would improve (him liking it) it got worse :( . So we are going to bring DD so we can have some fun, then the plan is to go back just him and I in Jan :goodvibes Then I am sure we will be waiting a few years before we get to go back.

Wow, that's what my wife said as well. I'm ready to go back next week!!

Granted, if we wait 5 years, both of my girls will be tall enough to ride everything (this time my oldest couldn't do RnR or Expidition Everest but my youngest missed out on a lot by less than an inch :headache: ).

Hi everyone!
It was great meeting you all. I'm glad I ran into LaraK at Biergarten - she told me about the meet. I told DH Sean on the way to the Jungle Cruise "it's nice to be with "people of my own kind"! (Nice, Disney-crazy people). We have plans to go back in August to celebrate our anniversary. I swore we would never go to FL in the summer, but we wanted to try the Beach Club and I got a decent price, so we're taking long weekend.

Again, it was nice to meet everyone!
