Hi there! Glad you found us! My DH likes to "pretend" on occasion that he tolerates Disney too but we don't buy it! He is just a big kid and totally gets into it!

Only 3 more days! I can't believe it! The time has just flown by! I can't believe we're already going back! But now that this trip is all ready what will I spend my time planning Another trip of course! DH called the travel agent yesterday and booked us our very first trip just the 2 of us! When we went in the 80's we went with my DF who was on business.We've since gone many times as a family but this is a first! We haven't taken even a weekend away since Caitlin was a baby so this is completely new to us! We are staying just 3 nights at Pop (might actually make it there in Sept) with Free Dining and we'll catch the Food & Wine Fest and MNSSHP! I'm so excited! We'll miss little Shopaholic but I promised her we'd go at Halloween after she graduates college. So now there's another trip to plan and most importantly we must decide what to wear to the party?!! Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to hear them!

Yeah for 3 more days!!!!!! I am so excited for you! All my favorite pretrippies are getting ready to depart!

I finally got to see you old pics. Couldn't see them the last time I posted - stupid work computer firewall! They are great.

I am excited that you decided on the solo trip. When are you going. DH and I will be there 9/20 - 24. I haven't booked airfare yet, cause I still worried we might have to cancel. We are planning on the party, too. I haven't even started to think about a costume! You are way ahead of me!

Thanks! We are going Sept 28-Oct.1.( We wanted to wait until the F&W Fest started.) Too bad we'd just miss you! In reality it is much too early to be thinking of costumes but I am a planning addict! When DH and I were at the Disney Store they had a Hannah Montana wig & boa set on clearance. I thought it would be great if DH was Hannah and I was her dad BUT I just couldn't convince Workaholic that he'd make a lovely Hannah. Not sure why he wouldn't want to be a 16 year old girl for Halloween.

You know, I can't imagine why he wouldn't want to be a 16 year old girl for Halloween either, unless the costume came with some of her millions!

I really wanted to go to disney during the start of F&W, but I have a coworker her is leaving that week for a 3 week safari, and I'm not talking the Animal Kingdom type. So, alas, I had to go the week before. Poor me. Actually, I really hope it is a slow week. So Far we are still staying value. No recent urges to upgrade!

Only 2 more sleeps now! It is really getting close! Yesterday I called down to WDW and ordered a couple suprises for 2 of our dinners! I'm so excited! But sshh it's a secret so don't tell Caitlin! Ok yeah she knows I ordered something but she doesn't know what. Hopefully this makes up for last year. What happened last year you ask? Well long story but here goes..... Last year we were in WDW celebrating Caitlin's graduation and I had preordered a graduation cake. However, on our first day there our dog got hurt. She somehow managed to turn on our bathtub faucet and then freaked out and ran through the screen door and my when my DM came over to feed her (she lives 5 mins away) she found her stuck! And bloody! We thought we'd have to go home so we cancelled all our adr's that we'd spent months planning! Well my DM & DSF, my DF and a friend of Caitlin's all graciously took turns caring for her (she had to be given meds and have ointment applied to the wound) and we ended up staying (at their insistance) and had a wonderful yet slightly stressful trip. But no special cake so hopefully a special treat will make up for that and also celebrate her great first year of college. As for our dog... she healed beautifully after recieving lots of TLC! She is 14 and we love her to death and have been begging her to stay out of trouble this time! Hopefully some will keep her out of trouble! Well if I'm leaving in less than 48HOURS! I better go get some done!

Thank you both! Well 24 hours from now we will be on a plane headed down to the Happiest Place on Earth! I can't believe we'll be back there tomorrow! I'm so excited!!! I have been busy this morning! I have already gone through the airline check-in process and printed our boarding passes and gone to Steve Soares and placed his entertainment times in our itinerary. I then retyped and printed the new and improved itinerary. On most of our trips we have bi-passed the live entertainers in Epcot in a rush to catch the "rides". But when we were there in Dec. my DM was in a wheelchair and it forced us to go at a slower pace. We actually stopped and smelled the roses and we found out how much we'd been missing! We caught almost all the holiday storytellers, a part of an Off Kilter show, the French Waiter and the WS Players. We loved it all! I made sure I put showtimes in this itinerary so we can enjoy more of what Epcot has to offer. In MK I added the times for the new Stitch show in Tomorrowland. This should be fun since it supposed to be similar to Turtle Talk with Crush which is great fun! I have more to do to get ready so I should go get busy! If you have any last minute ideas or suggestions for us PLEASE SHARE! Thanks!
