Phew, that you'll get to experience TSM! It's a great interactive ride! Soooo much fun!

Thanks for the great pictures of Emily and Eva. You are getting really good with your camera!
I may see if I can swing an October trip. : do they let you book two bounce back trips?

Whatever is down, I know it is not the end of the world. Though I have to admit, I really want to try TSM. I hope they do not run behind schedule!!

Thanks--babies are so fun to take pictures of, they don't move! I have to work on getting a better picture of Emily. One of these days I am sure I will.

The nice things about Disney is that there are so many great attractions! Even if a few favorites are closed, there's so much to do. I just love walking around Main Street in MK and soaking in the kool-aid. It must get absorbed through the skin?

Yup, I agree (on both accounts). The song is notorious for sticking in heads but I would have braved it for Lilian.

It is true that there are going to be so many other WONDERFUL things that we won't miss whatever is closed. We will have a GREAT time no matter what.

Well, that just stinks about IASW being closed during your visit. Lillian would've loved it. Like others said---There's your excuse to go back!

Hope you're having a good weekend, Stephanie!

Oh well. Worse things have happened!
I have to pop over to yours yet--but I will be right there with you. I am trying to get over it, reminding myself that Lilian won't miss it because she does not know about it, etc. Definitely are worst things that could happen. We just need to keep reminding each other of that.

Your first trip to Disney and you don't get to go on IASW! While the song can be a bit annoying (ok a lot depending on moods) it is a quintessential ride. It will be fine!! I just wanted to whine here on DIS only because DH would not be bothered.

Good luck w/ your last assignment too and enjoy that BREAK...you deserve it.

Scrappie J~
Oh, POC that would definitely be one I want to go on more than IASW! We have not see the updates yet for it. It's ok--we will live! It gives us another reason to come back.

Thank you!! Assignment is finished and turned in (with a bit of drama) but I am free for a while before I have to prep for summer classes.

I can't believe it's a small world is closed either. Anything else they wanna close for our trips. I was really looking forward to Star Tours as well. I'm starting to get a little bummed out.

Like PP's have said, it's just a wonderful excuse to go back!

Hope you're having a nice weekend Stephanie!!
I think Lilian would have loved it but it will be there another we go back.

Thanks Leanne! I hope you are as well.

It will be fine! There are so many other things to do and see, that missing IASW won't be the end of the world. We will just have to go back another time.

I hope you are having a great weekend too Michelle!

Just keep reminding yourself there are hundreds of things to do at Disney!! The kiddos are not going to be disappointed once they get there and start experiencing all kinds of new things!! A new resort, ADRs at AMAZING places to eat!!

While the shock hurts, we will have a wonderful time!

I know I personally enjoy reading about trips, and starting today it has been five years since we have gone to Disney! I thought it would be fun for me to look back on that trip as I am in planning mode for our first family trip with DD.

This trip happened almost on a whim. DBF and at the time her boyfriend (now DH) were up in January 2005 for a visit. We started talking about a vacation and Disney popped up. DBF grew up going to Disney. Her mother is whom I refer to as the Disney master. We thought why not? DBF’s mother, DGM as I refer to her as, priced out options for us. We narrowed down the resorts to POFQ and Boardwalk. DGM priced them out for us and gave us the amounts.

Here is what we settled on:

Where: POFQ, individual rooms (thought it would be too much to share one room together)



When: May 15th-May 21st 2005

Who: DH and I, DBF and her DH (then boyfriend), DGM and DGP

Our first day: Sunday, May 15

First park: MGM



First Ride:



Our first table service restaurant:



What did we have for our first meal at Disney:

DH had Salmon, rice and veggies
I had Chili and Onion Rings

DH's favorite ride as the RnRC
Mine, I did not list.

Others I listed we rode: Great Movie Review

This trip we were taking pictures with our first digital camera and a film camera. I have not scanned them the film camera pictures in but I need to do it, preservation sake at least. I hope you join me as I take a look back while I keep planning for our next trip.

Love the flashback pics. We went to Sci Fin in September for the first time in about ten years and really enjoyed it.

Well, it's not technically MY first trip. I was in MK for a day on my Senior Trip in '93 (yep, I'm that old, lol). We didn't have touring plans or anything like that so we just kind of wandered around and we left when it was still light outside. The things I remember doing:

-Space Mountain (I actually remember being in line for this one more than I remember the ride.)
-Peter Pan
-Splash Mountain (Which I LOVED!!)
-Toontown
-A show in Toontown that had characters from Darkwing Duck, Ducktales, and Rescue Rangers
-Waiting in a LONG line so my friend could meet Mickey
-IASW- and I didn't like it! I thought it was cute at first but after a while everything started to look the same and it was just sensory overload.

That's it, that's all I remember. No one else in my family has ever been to Disney and I don't think that's enough to count so I count this as my first trip too.

I absolutely LOVE the pics from your '05 trip. It's so cool when you can incorporate memories from other trips into your planning.

I'm really bummed about IASW too. I know a lot of people don't like the song and all that, but it doesn't feel like Disney without riding it. I actually exit the ride with the biggest smile on my face! I love it!

I think that the closing of TSMM in Aug/Sept is an actual refurb. I read they are changing a game when TS3 comes out, but that doesn't take that long. Bo Peep's dart game will now be run by Rex and Trixie (the new dino). I read that another new toy will be added to the prize screen at the end as well. Those are only graphics and can be done rather quickly. At least TSMM will be open while I'm on my trip. It's one of our favs!

Awww! Your first trip!! Cute Sci-Fi picture!! Love the flashback, can't wait to see more!

We left the day before you got there! We were at Disney 5/7-14, 2005!

This trip will be soooo much better even with all of the chaos of the group because you will be focusing on Lilian and her reactions! Make sure you bring some tissues, you will tear up at the fun she is having!

What's this I'm reading about TSM being closed?? I will cry if that's closed during our trip. I loooove that ride and plan on going on it as many times as I can!

Love that you're looking back at your trip. Can't wait to see the pictures you get of your DD on this upcoming trip!

It is scheduled to reopen on September 4 so you should be fine.

I am so impressed you either can remember what you did five years ago or have at least saved a journal from that long ago. How amazing. Im loving hearing all about your past trip.
