That's the one parade we have never seen -- hopefully we will catch it this time!

So lucky to get dresses made!! I wish I could sew.
Glad to hear CP is your favorite breakfast. I am struggling... I have big time ADR change itis....

I have no sewing ability... a button is it. My sister in law is better than Martha Stewart... very cute stuff.

Same to you!

Luckily he does not care... I just plan to dress him cool. He has double Mickey and Donald shirts, but I think now I might have to pick him up another one....

The dresses will be great for the girls! I look forward to seeing them in pictures.

I hope you are better at keeping up with your journal than I ever am. I always have good intentions, and I get off to a decent start, but I fail to keep up with it. I take times here and there to write, but in the end, I use my pictures to spark my memory for the most part. I know I miss a lot of details by not keeping up with the writing.
It has to be about your ADR time... what is the big family meals planned this trip? I thought of you when the dresses were mentioned. I bet Bella and Brooklynn will have some someday!

I forgot to take a journal and write last trip, so I struggled a bit when writing this. I think for all purposes I need one this trip since we might do some splitting up. Plus I hope to take more pics... I am sure I cannot compare to you in the number of pics or quality, but I hope to have more!

I am already thinking about how peaceful it will be, can we rent our stroller on the way, or do we have to come back and rent after breakfast- do you know?

YES to CP breakfast. We loved that one, too! Trying Chef Mickey's this time, but if we don't like it, def going back to CP!

Disney dresses, handmade, what a treat!

And we have never seen that AK parade, either! Gonna try to hang around long enough to see it this time.

Today we are looking forward to




Journey in to Imagination! (we call it Figment here). Boy do I wish they still had Figment meet and greets!


Also I read in the paper that Mary Poppins is coming in our local Broadway series next spring... I think that I will have to go, and I also think that Hannah is going to see her first Broadway touring play!

Have a great weekend everyone, our weather is fantastic, I see lots of outside time for us this weekend!

I love Figment! He's such a cute little guy.

I have been waiting for Mary Poppins to come to Boston! I'll have to go see if they have information on that yet!

We love Figment! I'm sure Mary Poppins is amazing. I'll have to see if its coming to Chicago. Madeline really wants to see Wicked for her birthday, but it left Chicago. Maybe Mary Poppins would be a good replacement. That way the whole family could go.

We have never done Figment, might have to add that to the list.

My friend just saw Mary Poppins in Chicago and LOVED it. She said it would be great for older kids as well as adults.

We are looking forward to some of the same things you are. CP before park opening and Jammin Jungle Parade. We went on Figment once, but not sure we'll do it again.

I think Hannah would love it. To go to a big show with mom- what a treat. I am sure Emily will not be happy, but sometimes you just have to wait till you are old enough!

I think on Mousesavers there is a ticket deal for it in Chicago---- check it out!

Emily is not thrilled with Figment. I will let you know how it goes this summer. Thanks for the info on Mary Poppins....

I could take it or leave it for Figment. I might have to be getting FPs or feeding Luke... no biggies to miss it. Hannah however loves it!

Hannah's Top Five

While in line tonight at Kings Island I was asking her about her top rides at Kings Island. Then I asked about WDW.

Here is her top five:

1) Splash Mountain

2) Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

3) Haunted Mansion

4) SpectroMagic

5) Lunch at the Castle

While I know they are not all rides, it was interesting to say the least. I bet this list changes this trip, we will see. I had number one for sure, and I know the Haunted Mansion is a top five. I will have to get Emily's list too!

Just found your new TR!! i took my son at 5 months last Aug (during Hurricane Faye!) and then again in Dec at 9 months. Let me know if you want any tips!!

I'll also be about 33 weeks along, like you were last year, so I may go back and read last year's TR for some hints. We'll miss you by a few days..we check in on the 28th.

I didn't have any probs with getting ADRs but also didn't have tough places like the Fan. Package or CRT. Glad it worked out for you!!

Can't wait for more

You'll love CP for breakfast - the food is wonderful, and we loved the characters. Plus, as you said, there's nothing like walking down a virtually empty Main Street!!

I can't wait to see the girls' dresses! Unfortuately, my girlie girl is (gasp) showing signs of growing out of the princesses. No sign of Hannah Montana or High School Musical, though, so I think we're safe. She says (right now) that she wants to do BBB when we go next summer, so that's on our list right now. I hope nothing changes, since we've never been there before and she's my only girl.

If Marry Poppins is coming to Cincinatti, we might have to head over. When will it be there??? Mom and I have taken DD (she'll be 8 in July) to see a couple of shows - most notably the Lion King last fall right before Thanksgiving. It was worth going to just to watch her face, especially when the animals paraded past her (we managed to snag isle seats). I was glad I'd seen the show before, because I just kept wanting to watch her. You guys will love going to a show together!

I'm also enjoying the picture countdown. A great way to get a Disney fix!
