We are going back to Disney! 3 out of the 4 of us are THRILLED about this. My husband on the other hand is not! :lmao:He will live I promise and he is not mistreated like he would like for all of you to think..but I have been warned this is the LAST year that we are going to Disney. Only time will tell if this will hold true!!

Dates: Our plane lands at 9:10 am on Friday Oct 2-we are staying at Animal Kingdom Villas Jambo House and our trip comes to an end on Saturday Oct 10.

The cast:
Myself (Melissa) 29 and DH (Aaron) 29

This is our second trip to Disney. I am super excited about it, I have all of our ressies made and I am really looking forward to spending this time with my family. THe trip last year was the best vacation that I have ever been on as a parent. My husband enjoyed watching our kids light up at the sights and sounds of Disney. I am sure that this year will be even more memorable.

I work in a busy doctor's office and the doctor that I work for will probably have a stroke once he realizes how many days I will be missing from work. No worries I have plenty of vacation, but the man cannot function properly if I am not there! Let's keep the gang I work with in our thoughts and prayers while I am on vacation!

I plan on working part of a day on Oct 1. I plan on leaving work around 1ish and then coming home throwing the rest of the things into the car, wake up my husband and then pick up the kids from daycare and THEN we get to head to Indianapolis. We are driving up the night before since our plane leaves out at 7 am. (TOO EARLY) and we are probably going to be tired and grumpy! We are going to take advantage of the Sleep and Fly the hotel will take us to the airport and then pick us up when we return home.

We are flying AirTran and have a nonstop flight from Indianapolis to Orlando! Our flight touches down at 9:00 a.m.

My kids are fighting over Epcot and Magic Kingdom. I think that we may spend some time in Epcot and hit the food and wine festival and we have a 3:00 early dinner reservation at the Rose and Crown.

Later that night we have the Pirate and Pals Cruise planned for the kids. This is a surprise so I am sure that they will love it!

Last year Aidan was a little timid around the characters. The only character that he really liked was Stitch. So I found it suiting that we start this day off right with breakfast with Lilo and Stitch!!

9:40 Breakfast at O'Hana's

Then head to Magic Kingdom


Emilie has an appointment at BBB at 1:00 she wants to be Cinderella again. She plans on dressing like a princess everyday this year. Whatever keeps her happy!!

HI! I found you!

OMGosh we have a lot in common! My kids are 4 and 2 and I work in a doctors office who just about had a stroke when she realized how long I would be gone!

Too funny!

Your kiddos are adorable! My youngest was not crazy about the characters last year... she finally came around when they stopped "getting in her face" and just chilled back ~ then she would go to them. :)

Looking forward to reading more!

Hi! Looking forward to your TR. Your kids are so cute! DH and I will be going with DD, SIL DGS7 and DGD2. My DD and I found a really cute Cinderella dress with matching shoes ($4) at the Disney outlet down to about $20! So DGD will be dressed up for Akershus. I loved the Belle one on her but she over-rode us and chose Cinderella!:goodvibes Actually grangaughter wanted Snow White dress but it wasn't on sale.;)

Well I'll be watching you,:cool2: and waiting for more!popcorn::popcorn::

I'm glad to see a fellow "October" person is doing a pre-trip report. And this is perfect, because you will be going a couple of weeks before me!! Hopefully, I will be able to steal some of your ideas.;)

I'm sorry your hubby is not as big of a fan as you are. How is that even possible?? I just don't understand how someone could go to Disney and not be totally in love with it!!! :rotfl: Hopefully, he just needs another round at Disney.....maybe after this vacation, he'll catch the DisneyBug :love:

Anyway, I just subscribed to you pre-trip report.....so keep the fun planning coming...:surfweb:

With kids that young, does your DH get to do the thrill rides or things like the car show?

My dad always used to say the same thing. Actually, he would say we're never going on a vacation again. :rotfl: But he secretly loves the thrill rides---and blatantly loves the car show.

We make it a point to get a babysitter for an evening so we can do some adult things. We did this last year and we really enjoyed our vacation since we had some alone time to ride TOT and RNRC

Last year the kids favourite park was Epcot. Magic Kingdom was a close senond. This totally surprised me because we did not ride one ride there last year. We did the Honey I Shrunk the Audience and the kids weren;t too happy with that one! Last year we ate at Princess Breakfast which I thought was fanstastic, Coral Reef and the Garden Grill. This year we are going to do the Princess Breakfast twice, no Coral Reef and we couldn't get into the Garden Grill!

Our plans for the 4th of October..
EPCOT!!
9:20 Princess Breakfast in Norway...

Grab a counter service for lunch when we get hungry
6:40 Les Chefs de France for dinner.

I have been teaching my kids French so I am interested to see if they will try to speak French when we are at the French resturant. Should be interesting! We have never eaten here before so I am hoping that we will not be disappointed..

I am kind of sad that we could not get into Garden Grill. This was surprising because last year I changed my Garden Grill ressie a million times before we left and then this year I can't even get 1 ressie! We had a blast with Chip and Dale and Mickey and Pluto. My daughter even tried to feed Chip and Fale her cupcake. It was too cute! We got a lot of attention because the resturant wasn't very crowded and the chipmunks kept picking on poor little Aidan..

http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m188/melissa_meador/DSC01386.jpg

In this pic the character snuck up on Aidan and was rubbing his head, Aidan thought it was me!! So he was laughing and playing and then he was in for a surprise! It looks like he is being choked by Chip! My son was not harmed in this picture! :lmao:

On the agenda for this day...Hollywood Studios! My daughter says that she is going to ride Tower of Terror with me. We will just see what happens!

My husband is super excited about Hollywood Studios. I have been told a million and one times that we have to ride the Toy Story Mania ride more than once! At least he gets his thrills somewhere!

Today we will be doing lunch at Sci Fi. I am hoping that this will be good. We are planning on paying out of pocket for this one, so I am hoping that it will be worth it.

Later tonight we are using Kids Night Out so we can return to Hollywood Studios for extra magic hours. We used this service last year and we truly enjoyed our vacation more. My husband and I do not get a lot of alone time everything that we do is centered around our kids..so these 4 hours we look forward too. Another thing my husband is looking forward to is, I requested a young college student to play with the kids..(he;s hoping she will be a looker!! :lmao:) Last year I had no prefence and we ended up with an older lady that looked like Aunt Bea! She was super friendly and the kids enjoyed her, but the kids are older and little more rowdy and I think that they would enjoy playing with a college student...

I think Oct 5 is our HS day too :rotfl: And I also think we are eating at Sci Fi but I am not sure because all of my plans are at work :rolleyes1 I am pretty sure this was our HS day because I remember the EMH and I was thinking to get there at rope drop..ride TSM, get TSM fastpasses....TOT many times and go back to hotel later in day to rest then return for EMH....although I could be all wrong but I think that is what I had planned!!:confused:
Very cute picture of your son with Chip/Dale!! Your daughter has lots of princess dresses!! How fun to be a little girl surrounded by the princesses! princess:

We will also be hitting HS on the 5th, or at least for the eve. EMH. We're eating at Whispering Canyon that night, then heading to HS to make the Playhouse Disney Dance party with my DGD who's almost 3, and loves music and dancing. :dance3:
I hope we can get her down for a nap that day. Or we may be sorry!
We'll be doing the Akershus breakfast on the 6th. Really looking forward to that one.

Today we are sleeping in! At least that is my plan..don't know if the kids will buy it or not..but I like the idea..

We are going to DTD we have lunch scheduled at T-Rex cafe. I am really looking forward to this since both kids LOVE dinosaurs.

Later tonight...Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! I can't wait. We all want to dress up we have had many different theme ideas going. At first we were going to do Alice in Wonderland, DD as Alice, DS as the King of hearts, myself as the Queen and DH as the Mad Hatter..

Then the Pirates League opened and I thought this would be an excellent idea...the whole family as pirates...

I made a reservation for the 4 of us...

ammeador2
08-30-2009, 09:58 PM
I like to ask the kids what they want to dress up like and what they want to be at the party etc...

Today my little Emilie tells me that she would just be happy if she could be a princess and my Aidan says.."momma, I just want to be Prince Charming!" Where did he come up with this?!? So, I have been frantically googling Prince Charming costumes..and he doesn't like generic costumes...he wants to be the Prince Charming from Cinderella...:rotfl:

So this is what I am thinking about getting him. I normally would never spend 55 bucks on a kids Halloween costume, but I think that if he was to wear it the night we went to 1900 Park Fair for the dinner with Cinderella and the Step sisters that we could get some priceless pics and then if he wore it again the night of the Halloween party that he would be happy and we could get our money out of it!

Here is the costume..

My husband is FINALLY starting to get excited. He informed me that the less that I talk about Disney the more he looks forward to it...I think he's trying to tell me something..:rotfl2:

I just found your PTR. I believe I was along on your last one? Anyway, we are going to be there at the same time this year. I also noticed that Oct. 6th looks about the same for us. We have lunch scheduled at T-Rex and then MNSSHP that evening. It was even more similar when you said you were all going to be pirates as that is what we are doing. Simple pirates though with a surprise pirates league scheduled for the older two boys. Maybe we could try and meet up somewhere???

BTW, that Prince Charming costume is so cute and I can't wait to see pics of him in it.

You will love CM! It is one of our favorites! :)

I get the chocolate mouse dessert every time... then remember I don't like it!

Here is a picture of it. Not sure what the "head" part is made from but is seems to be some kind of chocolate pudding/jello combo.. YUCK! They sure are pretty though!!

Seriously right?! Well the stuff between the oreo and the yummy chocolate ears was so nasty ~ even the three year old wouldn't eat it. I would love to know what it actually is.... jello or pudding? :P

Hello there!!!

I wanted to let you know that you have a beautiful family and you are going to have a blast when you go!! Halloween is an awesome time. DH and I went in early October in 2006 and it was awesome! The best parade we have ever seen is the one at MNSSHP!

I used to have a job like yours. I think my boss almost lost it when I told her I was taking 2 weeks for my honeymoon. I escaped her crazy clutches thought :lmao: Not to worry, a vacation will do you good and you and your family deserve it!

Can't wait to read more about your trip!!!

Okay today we are going to Animal Kingdom..
We have breakfast scheduled at 820 with Donald. I am super excited about this one...can't wait to meet Daisy. Last year Emilie met Donald and she asked him where Daisy was..he pretended to throw a purse over his shoulder and started walking girlie like Daisy and my daughter said.."so Daisy is out spending your money!?" Donald thought that was great! :rotfl2:

For dinner we are going to Boma. I have never been here either. This trip is a lot of firsts for us resturant wise. But I am adventerous and willing to try new things!

After dinner if we aren't too tired we will head back to AK for EMH!

This is our last day..I will mope around becuase I won't want to return back to the reality of life..how fun is that compared to Disney right?!

We plan on checking our luggage via ME, checking out of AKV and then heading to 1900 Park Fair for our last Disney character meal. Should be a good time..

Hopefully if we feel like it we can head over to one of the parks and ride a couple of rides depending on what time we have to be back at the hotel to catch the ME bus...

I know I started planning our trip this time last year right after we got back from Disney I just had to get the ball rolling! But time does go by so fast when you get to escape the everyday hassles of life..

Disney cruise! I would love that!! I have been on a cruise never Disney though..

I hope DH does find a new job soon...:goodvibes

I know I am starting to get a little antsy I have been planning forever and it seemed like it was NEVER going to get here..and now 3 weeks from today I will be on an airplane already with 1 more hour left before I am in Orlando...crazy!

It does make me sad when the trip comes to an end...and on the same note I am ususally so exhausted I can't wait to get home and sleep in my own bed!

I went out this weekend and got the kids some glow sticks and some cheap trinkets for airplane entertainment. I just haven't started packing yet and I am starting to worry that my butt will be too big to fit into my last year Disney clothes! :headache: I guess that I need to find some will power and try extra hard to stay away from the oreos for the next couple of days. It is truly depressing!
Next weekend we have Race for the Cure I am making the whole family do it (gotta prepare the kids for Disney walking!) after that, I believe that grandma and grandpa are going to take the kids for the night so I can pack undistracted and find out what I still need..hopefully this means that Sunday mornign I can sleep past 5:30 am since my son won't be home!

Okay, normally I have had my suitcases packed for 2 weeks (okay maybe a month) and ready to go...2 weeks from know we will be in Indy at the hotel ready to catch our flight to DIsney!

The only thing I have done for this trip is: (other than the obviouso, plane, theme park tix, everything else)

I paid for our groceries to be delivered..
I have nothing packed maybe I can get started this weekend..God I hope I can!

I need to get some future homework done so I don't have to worry about it! Don't want to do this either! I am in anti-school mode right now!

A friend of ours passed away this week and Friday we have to go to the funeral home, and then Saturday we have race for the cure..

I just feel so unmotivated! Where did my motivation go? I know that once I pack and get super excited, then our trip comes and goes and then I have no more Disney to look forward to for awhile..sad but true...

Things have been crazy here..I honestly don't know if I am coming or going... Too much drama is taking away from my Disney fun. Hopefully I will be able to leave all of that behind while I am at Disney.

Since our flight leaves out so early in the morning DH and i have been thinking about skipping the park and fly at the hotel and just leaving our houses at 1 am. He's used to working 3rds and I am so afraid taht we will over sleep if we try to drive 4 hours stay at a hotel and then try to wake up..or God forbid what if I leave something behind i nthe hotel!!

Aidan has decided that he wants to be a pirate again..so he threw a fit over Emilie's pirate dress so I have tricked into thinking that his new black chuck taylors are actually his official "pirate shoes" :lmao: The kids have more outfits but this is the best that I could get in far as cooperation goes...
