I see you will be going at Christmas which I knew but didn't know it would be your first time. Love it at Christmas time. We went one day last year but the high was 38 degrees so it much colder than normal and we only went to MK.
We are sooo looking forward to the Christmas trip! I hope it's a little warmer when we go! This will also be the longest trip we've ever taken to WDW! We start with one day at AKV and then a 3 night Wonder cruise, then 5 *free* nights off property, then 3 nights at BWV. We're really making good use of our APs!

Had to find this TR again. I'll really try to finish it up today! It's gone on too long! (I also haven't done the other half of my photobook for this trip!) The next trip is coming soon (2 months) so I better wrap this up. If I do a TR next time, it will be abbreviated--like Cliff notes! I know I'm going to take a million pictures since it'll will be our first Christmastime trip--and so many fun things going on!

After watching the shuttle for a moment, we went to Monster's Inc. Ella was sleeping in her daddy's arms. I forgot how cute the show is. It was a good time. Ella woke up after the first few minutes too.

Time was running out, so we ambled toward Main Street. Much to Max's surprise and delight we ran into the TALKING GARBAGE CAN! For those of you who have hung in here through the whole report, perhaps you recall how Max checked every garbage can at Epcot to see if it talked. I told him there was only one talking garbage can and that it wasn't even at Epcot, but it didn't deter him!

I was surprised to see it there too, because it's a Tommorowland can and it was technically on Main Street. It was entertaining people waiting for the afternoon parade. Since the parade was about to start, we waited there to see it too.

Jacob was too hot, so he had to find a shady spot. Oh what a joy to be so little that you can find shade practically anywhere!










We had time to leisurely stroll through a few stores. We stopped by the art gallery where the boys had to color! What? After ten days of Disney, they think coloring is blast!?






Here are their masterpieces which a CM hung up for them and gave them certificates for being the artists of the day. Disney really does things right!


We had a couple more snack credits to use before we left, so one last stop...the confectionary.

DH always falls for the nut cluster thing, but always regrets it. I chose the huge peanutbutter cup. I regretted that too. It's not that it taste good, it was just too rich. It needed to be shared with like 8 people, and you really couldn't save it for later because it melts too fast in the heat. I should have just picked up a rice crispy treat or a drink or something. Oh well, I like trying new things and I wouldn't if it weren't for snack credits.


And finally, we have to say goodbye. I never want to go home, no matter how long we are in WDW! At least I know we'll be returning soon!


And that completes my TR! Thanks for reading along! I'll spend some time organizing it eventually. I'll put links on the first page to the updates--but it will probably take me another month! Bye for now!

Enjoyed reading along and looking at all the pictures! I'm a big picture person, too...you can never have too many, right!? I know what you mean about leaving WDW...always depressing. At least we always know there's a "next time"!!! We leave in 12 days for our surprise Halloween trip The kids have no clue...only 3 nights, but better than nothing. I'll be anxiously awaiting your Christmas trip report

Thanks for posting your trip report. My DD has just turned 2 so I have been reading reports with kids around the same age and have gathered that a break to the pool is a must!

Hope everything is going well with baby number 4 and that your planning for your Christmas trip is going well too.

Thanks! Starting the day early to avoid crowds and taking an afternoon break definately works the best for us! (There are days we break the rules though.) At age 2 our kids would often just nap in the stroller when they needed to, so we would occasionally pull an all day outing. Have a wonderful trip!

I am so glad I read this, DS and DD will love coloring on Main Street! Your TR was fantastic. Loved reading along!

Coloring on Main Street! It still cracks me up. I'm sitting there calculating how much we paid for tickets each day and there they are happy as clams, coloring! Well, whatever makes them happy!

I love Monster's Inc. It is such a cute show. Glad Max got to see the talking garbage can as he looked for it through the whole trip. So cute.

Isn't it funny that they wanted to color but that is how my grandchildren are also. One was a little disappointed because they were meeting us at Disney instead of going to my house.

I have enjoyed your trip report and thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Have a great trip in December and hopefully it won't be as cold as last year.

So cute!

Thanks for sticking with me through this thing! I am really looking forward to our December trip now! We have two other trips before then (Atlanta and Las Vegas) for business, but the whole crew goes along. I'm not thinking about those trips at all--Just WDW!

I am sure you will have a great time on your other trips if you get some time off but I am sure the rest of the family will find wonderful things to do.
