Awwww, you are so very welcome! Just make sure you stand in front of the castle to see it. You get the best view there, or if you get a spot early enough I hear the train station is great!

I can't wait to hear how the girls react to Tink's flight!

Oh, Laura -- one more thing -- they now have pink Mickey head soap at Basin -- very cute and strawberry scented -- also, they still have the yellow Mickey head soap by the register -- I bought a bar of each.

Also, they no longer carry the Where the Magic Lives CD, but LL told me about the Four Parks, One World 2-CD set, and it has all the best music from all four parks. It is great! We listened to it all the way home.

No sign of the Mickey ice cream bar bag though.

IT'S ALMOST TRIP TIME!!!!!!!

B. is lovin' him some Ritz crackers right now. I get the lightly salted ones and he can gobble them down. He also enjoys Cheerios.

I am really interested to see how you do with no checked bags. I will need a tutorial for sure!!

To my surprise, you're going back with Baby (big boy) Luke! Yippee! I was so excited to see that you are going again and staying for a nice size trip. You may need to do a 411 on how to pack a family of 4 for over a week in just carry ons. You are super woman! The girls are so cute, it seems like they have grown so much! AND Luke... oh my, oh my! He is so big! Goodness, I thought he was just born

I am super excited for you guys and really can't wait to read all about the trip with the whole family!

I cannot believe that in 36 hours we will be on the plane to Orlando. Most everything is packed... just a few (and I mean a few-- I had to submit my list to my packing general... dh) items left to fit in the bags. I think we are sending a suitcase and three bags with my parents and carrying on 4 plus probably two personal items.

Here is our plan for the week:

June 16th-Arrive early afternoon, swim, explore, DTD

June 17th - Breakfast at Ohana's (super excited... first time doing breakfast there), swim see my parents that evening when they arrive in Orlando.

June 18th- AK

June 19th- EPCOT with Dinner at Coral Reef

June 20th- Magic Kingdom with dinner at Chef Mickey's

June 21st - Hollywood Studios

June 22nd- Magic Kingdom breakfast at Crystal Palace and dinner at LeCellier in EPCOT

June 23- ????? until dinner at Mama Melrose Fantasmic Package

June 24- our anniversary at MK with lunch at CRT

June 25- return home that afternoon


We will see how much the "plan" stays intact. We have hoppers, so we will see!

You guys ARE my heroes!
The no check caused a bit of friction tonight. I missed the memo that it meant one bag, so a total of four bags! I also have a bag that is my diaper bag and my big vera backpack for the girls to use to store their stuff for the plane. Then we will have to carry on the DVD player.... yikes!

I am trying not to think of Luke... and how awful this flight could be (I am a glass half empty type of gal...)

Loved catching up on all of the things you are looking forward to -- just so you know, the orange trees still smell delicious on Soarin'!
With two bags with wheels I think we can manage... it might be a funny site. I just hope the girls cooperate, Luke will be in the stroller, but Em can be a stinker.

I have my last loads of non Disney laundry in, vaccummed, mopped and stuff today..... just waiting.

We have a swim date tomorrow, and Hannah's last softball game tomorrow night...I can't believe it is finally summer!

DH was freaking out at all the food I am bringing for him on the plane. I am not going to risk a melt down, I want a happy Luke!

I'm amazed that you could make it work! Good for you! It's so much easier to just have everything on hand. I would love to attempt this on our next trip...we'll see though. It helps so much that you can send stuff down with your parent's too, so nice!

Wishes...

I'm so excited for you!!!

The first day sounds lovely. Ease into Disney magic with the kids with the swimming and Downtown activities.

The characters at 'Ohana were great! Brooklynn could barely eat a bite as she watched the characters from a distance at every table until they got to here. She kept asking us, "Mickey come see me?" "Lilo (only it sounded like Lill-o) come see me?" while patting her chest with the palm of her hand. It was so sweet. She ate about ten cents worth of food!

As long as you have the 'go with the flow' attitude, you'll have a great time, no matter what the schedule is!
