As always loved the latest installment. Wasn't that bbq great! We did that our first night and really enjoyed it. Gosh I can't believe how big Zoe has gotten. We spent a day with them for Shelby's birthday back in 07 or 08 I think it was I can't remember now LOL. And then they came up and spent Memorial day with us but MAN she has gotten big!! Glad you all had a nice visit!

We have been hemming and hawing about taking a trip to DW in November. Usually we go every three years or so. Our last trip was over Thanksgiving in 08 and every other time we went (02 and 05) we knew before we even left that we wanted to come back and already were talking about a return trip. But when we left in 08 it was the first time we didn't have a return trip planned and had NO idea when we would be back. We KNEW we would go back eventually but just didn't have any concrete plans and had actually wanted to try some other , god forbid, NON Disney trips like Mexico, Hawaii, maybe even Europe. But the economy has just been so ugly and things with Shane's job and my mom's that none of those things have worked out. DL has pretty much been the only thing we can do cuz we are so close and I have always had my AP and we usually can watch for cheap airfare and cheap hotel deals and just hop down there for a few days.

But mom found out she had a few weeks that somehow got booked on her timeshare and she HAD to use them and she has been extending them now for I think almost 2 years so she wouldn't lose them. Then I found out about this free dinning and we have gone back and forth now for OVER a year trying to decide if we wanted to do a cruise or go there or WHAT the heck. We even thought of using the timeshare to go somewhere ELSE like hawaii or whatever but the airfare is just nuts.

SOOOO we finally bit the bullet and she made ressies for DW but we haven't bought airfare or anything cuz up till now it has been cancellable and there has been SO much going on but I think she is going to go ahead and get our plane tickets on Friday so I think it is FINALLY going to be a go. Which at this point we need to make a decision cuz it is really only 2 months away! We are going to go Veteran's day and that is really only Sept and Oct and then we would leave the 2nd week of Nov!

SOOOO hopefully it works out and after reading your report you have inspired me. I KNOW I will take tons of pics but I don't know if I will have the fortitude that you had to download all these pics but I think I will def try to add SOME anyway.

Perhaps I will start a pre-trip report over there so you guys can at least see what our plans are. I just hope it all works out.

I CAN say that my report won't be NEARLY as interesting as yours though.

Anyway I am off to run errands today (school shopping and such) but can't wait to see more! And hey you are almost up to "our" day!

I wish I could go to WDW......never been & it's a dream of mine to do this eventually. With a family my size....it's just out of the question. We live paycheck to paycheck so that kind of trip would mean winning the lottery to do it! I can't wait to hear & see about your trip!!! Maybe I can stow away in your luggage...... Let me know if you start up a PTR!!

Have a meeting this morning so no new stuff until this afternoon.....sorry!! Be back later!

Yeah surprisingly we have been very lucky and been able to do it relatively inexpensively but we got GREAT deals on airfare the last few times and my mom owns a timeshare so that is a HUGE thing too. The BIG expense of course is the tickets and the food but the last time we had our tax refund and the stimulus money which helped a bunch.

I started a ptr and then I got a bunch of phone calls and just had to run out to do my errands so I couldn't save it but I am back now so I guess I will START over LOL.

I will try to figure out how to do a link but otherwise I may just have to tell you where to look cuz remember I am really bad at this computer stuff!

Loving all the pics in your TR!!! I have to say, I was so hungry after your BBQ pics, that we ended up making a 9:00 pm trip to Wendy's last night. That's the last time I will take my cravings to fast food places during times that aren't lunch or dinner! Yuck! My chicken strips must have been at least 3 hours old, and my pop was warm and flat! Maybe I was just disappointed cause nothing tasted nearly as good as the food in that BBQ looked! Can't wait for my reservation there.

I have to ask though. Is the sausage and the corn normally a part of the menu? Cause I haven't seen or heard of those being on the menu in other pictures and posts I have seen on here. I will be even more excited if corn on the cob is included, cause I love that stuff.

Anyways, looking forward to hearing what happened with the girls tickets!

The sausage and corn are offered during Dinner and not lunch. Most of the BBQ's I have seen are during lunch. HTH

That is correct!! I knew for sure the sausage was a dinner only thing but guess I didn't realize the corn was also.....thank you for answering!!

Guess I should get back to report & let people know what happened with the twins tickets.......after lunch I'll do that!

Ok I started one and I posted the few pics I had on Photobucket from our last trip in 08. I hope this works if not it is in the Disney World section under PRE trip reports. I am not sure if I am supposed to move it myself or if the mods move it once it is an actual trip report once I am back and done??? But anyway I guess I will figure it out once I actually do it lol.

Anyway here is my attempt at a link. Hope it works.

Day 10, Monday, August 2!! Our last day of Disneyland........

As I left you all in a cliff hanger......Mike had lost the twins Parkhoppers & City Hall & Lost and Found wouldn't be able to help until this morning. We had a 9:30am breakfast reservation at the Paradise Pier hotel, so I left the group at the motel & would meet them at the breakfast. I walked over to Disneyland to head straight to the Lost and Found. I arrived & the tickets did not get turned in.....no big shocker here!! They told me that I would need to go to one of the ticket booths & speak with them. This is now the 3rd place I've been sent to!! I went over to the ticket booths & thankfully there wasn't a mile long line as I've seen on other days. I get up to the window & the gentlemen looks at me & says "you look stressed already & it's not 8:30am yet".....and asked what the problem was. I explained what had happened & told him that he was the 3rd person I was telling this too. He asked if they were paper or plastic cards. They were the plastic ones......I guess this is where the trouble/problem was. They don't have access to those like they do the paper. He got a supervisor that took over. He looked at our travel documents thru Disney Travel & we could even get the ticket numbers since I had gathered everyone's tickets & took them with me. There were 2 missing in the middle....so that narrowed everything down. He was also able to scan everyone's tickets to see that 5 of 6 days had been used.....so my story of having one day left on the missing tickets was pretty much confirmed (especially since they were child tickets & the twins are 3 & wouldn't have come on their own....lol). It took a while, but after all of this.....he was able to print up new parkhoppers (on plastic) for the twins!! Thank you, thank you!!! Finally a resolution after 14 hrs of sheer panic!

My advice if you lose your parkhoppers........DON'T!!! lol

After getting the parkhoppers in hand.....I headed thru the gates of Disneyland with all of our photopass cards. I think we had a total of 5. I went to the camera/photo shop at the end of Main Street to get all the cards under one account, as well as add in the Jedi pictures & character meals. This took a bit longer than I was hoping just because their computers were running very slow. I did get done in time to take a stroll down Main Street & then into DTD. I cut thru the Grand Californian's lobby to use the pedestrian crosswalk over to the Paradise Pier Hotel.

I arrived about 9:25 & my family wasn't there....I sent a text to see them coming thru the doors.





I checked in our family.....minus Anthony & Betty. It was a very long night for Anthony......he got sick....really sick. The funniest thing we heard all trip came from Nick in the middle of the night......he knocks on our motel room door & says "I NEED A PARENT"....... Wasn't funny at the time....but later in the day we were still chuckling about it!! So unfortunately Anthony would miss our last character meal.

**Back to the check-in part....forgot to mention.....it really confused them that instead of 10 of us there would only be 8 of us.....took forever to get it thru to the lady working the desk.....cracked me up that having 2 people not show up would so throw her off....I was tempted to look around the lobby & offer a free breakfast to 2 people.....lol

When we enter the restaurant, you are taken to the photo op area to meet Mickey Mouse. It's funny, because our last encounter with Mickey with the twins didn't go so great....this morning, Michayla went right up to him & then sat on the floor playing with his foot.....so he sat down on the floor with her. It was soooooo cute!! The photographer asked if it was ok to take a picture & I said please do!! (unfortunately I guess that never happened, because they weren't there with our other pics)








While we were being shown to our table, they asked the kids to come up & dance with Stitch, who was also joined by Mickey & then Pluto:















Addy was being a total grump!! I told her she could go back to the motel with her brother & grandma if she didn't want to be there.....her attitude perked right up....the little diva!!
