Love the picture of you with the tea cup!! Love the shirt!!!

Don't blame you for starting to pack, need to know what you have and what you need! I have 180 days until we return to the world and I have already begun my "list." I did call for my ADL's however their dining reservation system is being overhauled and I have been asked to call back in October to try again.. I need to know that everything is in place!!

I don't ask much.
Sounds like a plan!
Maybe we will even take a picture to prove it to ya

Is that the deal where they're going to 90 days to make reservations? I heard that was happening. Glad it didn't affect me. I'd be freaking out if we were that close and reservations weren't done yet.

You know, my wife and I had an interesting discussion over dinner last night. From time to time we eat dinner out on the back deck while we play the radio on live365 (Yes it is Disney music alot of the time. If not, then it's 80's music.) Unfortunately with the weather cooling down that might have been the last time this year that we get to do that. But back to the point.

We got onto the subject of what would Walt think today. If Walt came back and saw what Disney had developed into, would he bemoan the greediness that has permeated through the top of the Disney corporation. I think he would somewhat. I think he would walk in and immediately tell them to start plusing things, and that the bottom line would follow. But can you imagine? Can you imagine how he would react on his first trip to Kilimanjaro Safaris? Can you see Walt riding Soarin? Visiting EPCOT, I think, would just push him over the edge. He loved the world's fair. To know that one existed every day of the year...he'd lose it.

Then there's our little hobby. I image Tom McAlpin driving Walt over the bridge to Port Canaveral and pointing over to the Magic or the Wonder sitting at the dock and saying to Walt "That's your ship." I imagine Walt staring in disbelief not only at the size of it but at its beauty, its atmosphere. He would see all the childrens faces at the sailaway party. He watches the little girls dressed as their favorite princesses while they stand in line waiting to pose for pictures with those princesses. Even watching the Golden Mickeys and getting to hear his old classics, as well as all the succesful music Disney has put out since then.

I imagine Walt smiling, maybe even shedding a tear. Then he walks over to Tom and says "Great. Now plus it." Tom just grins, looks back at him and says "Let me show you the plans for our two new ships."

Yeah, DCL gets it.

One of the families on the WB repo made a book mark for their FE gift... it read...

"Walt made all my dreams come true when he shared his! If I had one day with Walt, I'd let him see his Disney through MY eyes....Thank you Walt!!!"



I think he would like some things that are new. I think he's looking down on heaven and saying "I started this?" (in a good way...)

Hi Mozart!

Love reading your TR, but I gotta tell ya- I hate the day you get on the Magic because that will be the day I get off the Magic! Oh well....I'll do my best to leave her in one piece for you, but I'm not making any promises!

Yes, but then again I think he's also looking down and seeing things like the new versions of Imagination and going "What were you thinking?"

I take that to mean you found them. I ramble on at times in my writings, but there's also a few moments in there that I think are entertaining. Like having 9 Bahama Mama's in front of 3 people. Right before the muster drill. I still have a hangover from that one.

Thanks, mamma! At least I know that someone enjoyed them. My wife seems to think I'm crazy for spending that much time writing them.

No offense, but I'm really looking forward to you leaving the Magic then. Just don't mess up anything to do with my room, or the spa and we'll be fine.

So I pull into my driveway today and there's a package sitting on the front doorstep. I think "I wonder if that's the pin I just bought on ebay?" But I purchased that from someone in California late last week. No way it's here already.

Then, I pick up the package. "DISNEY CRUISE LINES! CELEBRATION, FL! OUR DOCS ARE HERE!"

4 weeks until the cruise and our docs are already here! I don't remember them coming this soon in the past. Everyone on the main board is always complaining about how late they come. Oh well, I'm not going to complain.

Now I just have to resist actually putting the luggage tags on the bags now. It's so tempting. Like not peeking at a Christmas present. You know you shouldn't, but it would feel so much better if you just went ahead and found out what it was.

Now back to your regularly scheduled trip reports from the Sept 27th double dip delight...
