Wow!!! Closing schools for a "dusting"! Here in Maine we don't usually have anything shut down until at least 8 inches of snow! But we also don't usually have the threats of tornadoes and other severe weather, so I guess we can deal with the snow! I remember being in Disney one time and there was a tornado watch and I started freaking out! Give me snow anyday!

Becky: it takes a lot for the schools to close here. They will take into account how safe it is for those walking to school (too cold, too much snow, etc) but they very rarely will close. It has to be blizzard like conditions normally. Although they did close for a few days when the area schools had an outbreak of H1N1 last spring.

Ann: I am use to threats of tornadoes, growing up in southern Indiana does that too you. However, I can say I still get really nervous depending on what the sky is looking like! Snow, I am getting a bit tired of it!!

We are looking at moving to North Carolina in a few years possibly--I think it will be such a treat but a BIG change for us.

Epcot: Our Wishes, No Thank Yous and Sprinkles :)

So my last planning post I introduced the Our Wishes, No Thank Yous and Sprinkles posts. I am continuing on with them with our thoughts on EP.

Epcot is probably mine and DH’s favorite park. We really fell in love with it. When I was talking to our TA one day, I realized that part of it is because those we traveled with the first go around—this is their favorite park so we were always here. Maybe that has led to this? Nonetheless, we are planning on two days here. One solely devote to World Showcase, providing Lilian does well. The other day will be a little shorter, but will focus on Future World.

Epcot—World Showcase
Our Wishes:
Kidcot Stations, Grand Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros, American Adventure

No Thank Yous:
none that I can predict at the moment

Sprinkles:
Maelstrom (questioning whether Lilian will like this or not—never been on it. What do you all think?)

For the Thrill Seekers
Perhaps Maelstrom might fall into this but I am not sure

Epcot—Future World
Our Wishes:
Soarin’, Test Track, Nemo and Friends and the Aquariums in general, Spaceship Earth (I really do not think we did it the first go around, again b/c I don’t think the others like it), Turtle Talk with Crush, Living with the Land (I will go by myself if needed ), the jumping water fountain

No Thank Yous:
Honey I Shrunk the Audience

Sprinkles:
Innoventions, Circle of Life, Journey into the Imagination with Figment, Universe of Energy: Ellen’s Energy Adventure

For the Thrill Seekers:

Mission: Space

Epcot in General

Characters we will be looking forward to meeting:

Mary Poppins, Alice, Mulan, Princesses (we are planning Akershus’ Princess Storybook Breakfast) so Snow White, Sleeping Beauty/Rose/Aurora, Ariel and Belle

Are there others floating around that you know of and if so, where?

Extra things I will be looking forward to seeing:
I really want to take the time to look at the architecture if possible—of course that will depend on Lilian. I am especially thinking about the phone book in Great Britain.

Parades, Shows and Evening Entertainment
Illuminations is a definite must do on our list! I would like to hear the Voices of Liberty choral ensemble if we can time it right. Other entertainers, will depend on how the day is going.

Up Next: I thought I would post what Planning Tools I am using as well as Sheets I have created for my binder (which is going to be in a constant working state I am realizing ). I will also be continuing on with the Our Wishes, No Thank Yous and Sprinkles for AK and DHS.

Hi Connie!

It's fine I know you are busy and heck, I am too. I have been a "ghost" more so on your PTR so I am there, without showing. Speaking of yours, I have not headed over there yet today. I better go do it why I am not distracted.

Hi Stephanie! We've found Belle & the Beast in the UK and Jasmine and Aladdin in Morocco several times. It's kind of neat to get pics with the princess and her prince.

Oh and I had to share this: We have been talking and very open about going to Disney World with Lilian. I think for this first trip, I rather talk about it with her so she can have some sense about the trip. Well today, she saw a couple Disney World commercials and she looked at me and said "Mommy, I want to go to DISSSSNEEEEEE!!"

Awe I think she is really going to love it there

Does Lilian scare easy? Because there's a big ugly troll in Maelstrom and it tends to be a little dark in there. I've seen some kids totally freak out and some completely fine! Just a forewarning!

You know Jenny, it honestly depends on her day! There are days where she will acted scared. I read on another boards to have light up toys for children on the dark rides, so I am thinking it will be something I am looking for before we go or perhaps a first purchase (besides her ears) when we get there. Hmmm.....I will have to think on it and just base it off how she does leading up to it. Thank you so much for the head's up!! I love the DISboards for all the great tips everyone gives.

Lilian's a cover girl, so to speak. Our photographer put up new images on her website's home page. http://www.ejphotos.com/ Lilian is the second picture from the left. It is one of favorites from the session.

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.
