TWO more weeks?!?!? OMGoodness!

Yes I can't believe school is still in session here too! Last day for kids is the 16th, teacher day the 17th, and we WERE leaving on the 17th so it sounds just like your trip = schools out and here we come Disney!! That is just amazing how close it is now!

Your packing lists are great -- are you getting the Tables in Wonderland card? We are getting APs now, when we arrive, and I wanted to get that card as well...

So happy for you!

Your packing list looks great! I usually use the ultimate packing list, which is huge and then just personal it a bit. The 1000 reward dollars will help a lot too. Your trip is getting close . I would love to take Kaylee to see Mary Poppins, it's been my favorite Disney movie since I was 7 .

Aren't packing lists fun? Your list looks very thorough. Do your boys wear goggles in the pool? I need to make sure to pack those or both girls end up with red eyeballs from the chlorine.

When is your anniversary? George and I celebrate 16 years on the
19th.

Hey Diane - I'm all caught up!

Loved the photos from NYC! Looks like you guys had a great time. That family photo of you guys is wonderful.

You're getting so close now! I can't believe how many of you just got back, are there now, or getting ready to go!

Hi Laura! Yes, I might be moving schools actually, but I won't know until July! It stinks because while the teenagers can be a problem sometimes, I love the staff I work with!

HOLY COW.. this is one popular PTR!!! I just read the 1st post... and I completely remember reading about the AMAZING day your family had a MK.... I remember being so happy for you all!!

I also jumped ahead and read about Mary Poppins. Now I'm even MORE excited about seeing it in a few weeks.

It'll take me awhile to get caught up on everything else! I just did an update on my TR and LOST THE WHOLE THING.. so now I'm boo boo and need to go to bed.

Have a WONDERFUL trip.... I'll be here waiting to read ALL about it when you return.

Moving right along! Epcot wish list!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! It was very productive here! Yesterday I went out to lunch with my grandmother, she turned 87! I sure hope I have her longevity genes! She was so happy surrounded by 5 of her great-grandchildren!

On to the trip preparations!!

When I intially bought my cleo crocs I KNEW I should have gotten another pair but I was skeptical about whether or not I would like them! Well..... I LOVE THEM! I wore them to NYC last weekend and they are AMAZING so I spent ALOT of time this weekend looking for another pair and I kept striking out! NONE at Dicks, Modell's or Sports Authority...there were other styles but no cleos! In the end I ended up ordering another pair on line and got free shipping to boot! I HOPE they get here soon!


I also preordered our photopass cd today! Using the Disney Visa code I was able to get 15% too so the whole thing was only $85 not too bad for such a long trip, a definite value for us!!

I checked our packing list versus what I already have and it's not looking too bad! I still have a few things to buy but not much!!!



I also wanted to post our Epcot wish list for things we would like to see/do!!

Test Track (all day if we could...LOVE it)
Soarin
Mission Space (green side only please)
Kim Possible Adventure (I think the boys are looking forward to this the most)
Spaceship Earth (hopefully Eric doesn't pitch a fit this year)
Figment (sentimental FAVE)
Mexico boat ride
Maelstrom (never been)
New piggy bank adventure in innoventions
Strolling through World Showcase
shopping in world showcase
Margaritas
gran marnier slushies
Illuminations

Here is a few pictures from Epcot during last years trip...


Club Cool and the Beverly....









2 weeks from tonight we will be strolling around Hollywood Studios hoping to get on Tower of Terror at night!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!

That's a great picture! They look like they're having the time of their lives!

I love the streets of Hollywood at night with all the colorful lights.

Tower of Terror at night - awesome!

Oh it's getting so close! Love the lists. I can't remember a fit over Spaceship Earth in last years tr. I don't think I have ever done ToT in the dark. It sounds awfully fun. I meant to ask, do you tip DVC mousekeeping the same as you would reg ie a dollar a day times the number of people staying in the room or less because the mousekeeping is less?
Thanks for the advice in advance.
