Arrival: Friday 11/24 -
We had one of the best times of our lives! The whole trip was a surprise to my family from me. I told my husband on the drive down, but we didn't tell our DD until we passed under the arch at Disney World! She was so suprised she cried, which of course brought tears to our eyes! We traveled in our motorhome and pulled into FW around 2:30PM. DD was greeted by a CM (by name) and told Mickey had left something for her! Inside the gift bag was GOH Badges for each of us and a few extra niceties! The surprise from Mickey was priceless... I can't wait to get the pictures.
Pulled into the 900 loop, was clean, manicured and beautiful. Set up, had an early dinner and then traveled by bus to TTC to ride the monorail. We got the front seat on our first ride and traveled both loops! We then jumped onto another bus and traveled to Downtown Disney! Wow! That was something to see, so sparkling with all the Holiday decorations. Very busy, but very fun! Say all the neat shops and the wonderful lego sculptures.
DAY ONE Saturday 11/25: Rise and shine at 6:30 AM traveled to TTC to Epcot! Nobody was there! We were so surprised! Walked straight onto Journey into Imagination, The Land Pavillion, The Sea Pavillion, and Spaceship Earth, Had lunch at electric Unbrella (OK) then saw second half of the front of Epcot. One thing: The park with the fountains were beautiful! DD tried her hand at pin trading and is hooked! Went back to motorhome for a rest and early dinner around 3:00. After a wonderful dinner of Steaks we headed to MK! VERY BUSY, but delightful! We rode the train to toon town (I cried the whole way, I waited for this all my life and was so happy). Enjoyed the barnstormer (DD 1st rollarcoaster), Space Mountain, Tea Cups, Pooh's Adventure. Lines were very long! We went to see Tink fly, but the rain prevented her flight! Saw the fireworks and went back to FW very tired!

Wonderful sweet dreams tonight!

Thanks! Made me smile to read your post. Also I like to hear about people's experiences in FW. (My parents take their rv down frequently and meet us there. It's fun to go visit.)

I can't imagine keeping a secret like that for that long. Well, I couldn't. :rolleyes:

Riding up front in the monorail is really neat isn't it? :D

Thanks for sharing your trip with us, disny4fun. :)
