I can't wait to read about the tea party. We're doing that on March 7th and I'm so excited! Someone is working on an amazing Aurora custom set for my daughter to wear.

BTW, what did you wear to the tea? I'm trying to figure out how the adults dress.

I was 4 on my first WDW trip too! And I completely remember it!

It was the one and only time I have ever stayed on Property before we returned to CBR on this Trip.

As I have so many memories of inside the Poly, and was only there one time when I was 4, I knew before we left that DD will also have memories to last a lifetime from this Trip! Plus, I captured way more photos of this Trip than my parents did from our Poly Trip in 1977. I think photos will help her to keep bringing the memories back.

I just popped over to your TR - it looks very fun! I wish I had taken a trip like that with friends back in my younger days...I feel so OLD saying that -LOL!

I will pop over again to read more once I finish this one up.

The pictures are beautiful, I can't wait for the next chapter.

Thank You!

Wow - 2 Disney cruises before she is 3! How impressive!

I think 4 is the absolute PERFECT age for a first trip to WDW...hold off until then if you can. Especially if you can keep taking the cruises to tie you over. I would be most interested in reading a cruise TR when you are done!

Your DD is adorable, and her clothes are to die for! I would love a few outfits to take on our cruise in a few weeks, but I think I dropped the ball and waited too long, shoot. You are more than welcome to sell all of yours to me when your DD outgrows them!

Looking forward to the next installment!

Sorry, this made me giggle out loud! If my mom hadn't pretty much paid for everything, there's no way I would be going on these cruises! It was really cute the way you "said" that!

Oh trust me...I know that the cruises are more pricey than a trip to the World. I didn't mean to suggest it would be a lesser vacation, just that it seems to me to be more suited to a child under 4 than a trip to WDW. That way you can still get your Disney "fix", but save your daughter's first trip to WDW for an age when it will be the most special.

On our May Trip we took DS2. Don't get me wrong - we had a great time. However, we always needed to leave the Parks each day by shortly after lunch to ensure he could get a nap in. We also could not attend the Parks at night. And his interaction with the characters just wasn't the same as DD. Plus, he was fairly limited in what rides he could do so someone always had to sit out most of the rides.

I can't wait to bring him back when he is 4 and able to enjoy the Park again as fully as DD4 did!

I TOTALLY understood how you meant it, it just made me giggle! Last January we all went down to Orlando and rented a house in Kissimmee. DH and I did a day in Disney without DD (she did other fun stuff with Grammie) and she did go with us to Universal a few times. It wasn't too bad, but I definitely didn't get to do nearly as many things as I could have without her! She napped pretty well in her stroller, but she wasn't 2 yet. If we took her this year it would have been disaster!

OK - I have Good News and Bad News.

First, the Bad News: Although I advised that I wanted to finish this TR this weekend, that will not be possible. I am with the kiddos all day tomorrow and DH and I have a party to attend in the evening. Sunday I am also going to be largely tied up.

Now the Good News: I will be posting the Princess Tea Party segment tonite, and because I promised to share my "surprise" this weekend, I will also post that this evening even though the TR will not be finished until maybe Sunday night or early next week.

And just not to raise expectations too high, let me just say that NO, we were NOT selected as winners for the Night in the Castle!!! As much as I would have LOVED that!!! This is more of a very simple surprise, but I still hope that you will like it.

Thank you for such a wonderful TR :-)

I just found your TR and read every single word on all ten pages! I love it. Thank you for taking the time to share!

My DD is three and a half. I took her to WDW when she had just turned two, and now I am ready to go back this summer (or maybe Halloween, although I am a teacher so it makes it difficult). You have given me so many special, magical ideas. I especially loved the pictures of your daughter dancing to the piano music and playing duck duck goose with Daisy.

Wow! I cannot wait to read more!
