Can't wait to read more! I live through others going to WDW... Haven't been back since 2006...DH...he's not a fan, but my kids and I are. It is going to take some hard work to try for next year... I keep putting the bug in his ear. Maybe if I have the kids bug him enough he'll just give in.

Your daughter's birthday party was ADORABLE! What a fun, creative theme for a little girl's party!

hi, when i saw your title i said how can anyone plan a "last" trip , there should be no last trips always another one in the wings. i sympathize as i have a dh who is not thrilled with disney either. we are going in august and we have already agreed that if he is disneyed out he can sit by the pool and i will go to the parks with the kids. i think it is the only was to save our sanity.

i remember reading your trip report about your trip with your daughter and her custom outfits. i have to tell you after that i taught myself to sew
needless to say my dd customs dont compare to the pros but they are pretty cute.

i am looking forward to hearing about this trip

I am excited to read your report....we just returned last week from WDW. My husband is also throwing down the gauntlet about expanding our horizons in regards to new vacation destinations. (I am still hoping for one last trip at Christmas though to make the most of our annual passes

Your daughter's bday party looks fabulous!! You did such a wonderful job with the theme

looking forward to your report.

Thanks! Yes, it was a fun party. I had a lot of fun planning it too!

I love planning my kids' birthday parties! If you don't make a big deal about life, it can become stale. I love celebrating the seasons, holidays, and of course birthdays!

Yes, I love those envelops too! I picked those up on a visit to the Parks a year or so ago. I purchased it at the World of Disney Store in DTD. I didn't notice them on this trip (although I wasn't looking for them either) so I was glad I bought them. The package contained about 15-20 cards, and the same number of tags with tulle ribbons.

I have used them to send special pre-trip messages to the kids in advance of our trips.

So now I have special Santa stationary, and Tinkerbell stationary!

The pictures from Katie's birthday party are gorgeous! I especially like her (partially) toothless grin!
Thank you...yes, the toothless grin will be one for the scrapbooks. And she will be featured that way through the whole trip! I expect by the next time we will be in the parks, all of her prominent teeth will be fully grown in so this will be her last toothless trip to Disney.

Thank you!

Yes...I love the Poly too! It is my favourite resort on property.

I can totally relate to having a Grumpy DH. Mine was not impressed when I took him for his first trip at the age of forty-something! (he doesn't get out much)
Maybe MVMCP was a bit too extreme for an introduction to The Magic? I dunno. *sigh*
Anyway, you might notice he's not in my siggy? We're separated now.

But, Let me say your family is beautiful! I've enjoyed your intro, and am looking forward to more!

Oh, Very Cool Party!!
Wow...this Trip Report is sure confirming that I am not alone in having a Disney-resistant spouse. Not sure if that makes me feel better (that I am not alone), or worse (to think that there are more crazy people out there who can't be won over with pixie dust).

Thanks for saying hi, and I hope you stick around!

We're thinking of buying into RCI. DO you recommend it?
Great to have you along!

As for RCI....my husband and I don't actually own any timeshares. My parents used to own 2 RCI timeshares in Florida (one in St. Pete's and one at Orange Lake - just off Disney property) until they sold them a few years back. They just didn't like being "tied" down by them.

Chris' mother owns two as well - one with RCI and the other with Interval. She was the one who gave us her points as Christmas gifts the last few years to cover our accomodations in Florida. I know!!! You won't hear too many complaints about her from me!

Anyway, from what my experience is with timeshares, personally I would never buy one. By the time you manage the timeshare, pay the annual fees, pay exchange fees, pay taxes, ect I don't think it is worth it. I much prefer to pay out of pocket and decide where I want to go and when I want to go without having to wait to see if I can make a trade. If I was to buy anything I would buy into DVC.

Honestly, it seemed like just yesterday our May trip was a year away and now it has been here and gone. I bet June will be here before you know it! The last month or so before the trip, I actually wanted more time to get ready for it!

Have the fun is in the planning anyway, so enjoy the anticipation and planning! And in the meantime, I agree that reading trip reports is a great way to plan and build the excitement for your trip!

Ha, ha! Only if you are in charge of my next birthday cake! (Because I was in WDW on the DxDP for my birthday, with all of the dessert we got on the plan, I didn't get a cake this year. )

OK - I would say you are overdue! Recruit those kids - you need to get back!!!

You and I have the same plan. Ditch the hubby at the pool, and away we goooo!!!!!

Good for you for teaching yourself to sew! I think that would make your daughter's outfits that much more special!

Thanks for joining and Welcome!

So, are you fully unpacked yet? Would it scare you if I told you I wasn't? That is one of the many things on the agenda for the weekend!

Annual passes are so great in justifying the return visits! Sadly, I don't have one anymore.

I just saw Sex & the City 2!!!!

If you haven't already seen this movie, grab your girlfriends and go!!! (Don't worry - no spoilers in this post!)

What fun! I don't think I will ever see as many stilettos in a movie theatre audience in my life! And the limos! Total craziness!!! And the movie wasn't half bad either!
