Back in the 90s, I was waiting in line for Splash Mountain... a kid decided that he was going to get scared after waiting 1 hour in line. His father was apparently not having any of that. He told him "You can go over the hill in this boat, or I'll throw you off myself!." The kid immediately sat down and stopped crying.

Must start sewing.......aaaaah!!!

At this point, I'm going to be finishing up the girls' outfits the night before we leave...or hand sewing in the car on the way down.


I went out last weekend to try to get a couple more outfits with our Gymbucks, but they didn't have both sizes in anything I wanted. I'm going on to plan B. What that is? I don't have a clue.

We FINALLY got our dining plan added today, it has been such a whirlwind since we were able to get a CM discount. It was worth the wait though because she was able to save us a ton of money and every penny counts... We had to switch room types though, so it is a bit disappointing that we couldn't keep our king bed and now are down to the two queens, still at POFQ. My boyfriend is a horrible bed hog so I was looking forward to the king

Yes but now you could have your own bed!!

I will start packing this weekend. I had every intention of doing it this week but we're crazy busy and I just haven't gotten to it. Slowly but surely I am getting everything squared away. Is it just me or is it hard to go away when you're a grown up??!! Between work, kids, extended family, pets, house stuff, errands, etc etc it's exhausting to just get the heck out of here for a week!

Time is FLYING by though so busy is good!
I can do online check in for AKL on Friday
We rented points for a studio in Jambo house. I've only been there once for dinner at Jiko. I am really looking forward to it!!

We always eat at Wolfgang Puck Express (Market Place one) and get a margarita at the margarita stand (YUM!). After eating, the girls browse thru the shops while the guys make their way over to the West Side for the cigar shop and to listen to the live music on that end of DTD. We eventually meet up with the guys to catch the bus back to AKL at the bus stop on the West Side (or is it technically still Pleasure Island stop?).

Would still like to try Earl of Sandwich sometime and babycakes.

We've only ever eaten at Earl of Sandwich in DTD, but I would definitely recommend it. Great sandwiches, reasonable price.

Love World of Disney for shopping, but the Lego store is the family favorite!

We LOVE DTD.
We make sure to make it over there at least twice on every trip.
First night tradition is dinner at WPE.
Then we wander around and look in all the stores. The World of Disney is a must see! I was so impressed with the size when we first went in there. It's HUGE!
Some of our favourites include Basin, the toy store, the store with all of the kitchen items and the Christmas store. As you can see I don't pay much attention to names of places

There's a great store to look at and buy pins as well. And we always hit up Ghiradelli for a late night treat.
9 more days!!! I am getting so excited!! 12 days until we get to Disney and have our first night dinner on the patio at WPE

Bongos for eating, and the Christmas store and Team Mickey for shopping.

Our favorite place to eat is T-Rex. You can't beat the appetizer plate as an entree.

As far as places to shop....everywhere!

Love the World of Disney store, the Art store (can't remember the name), the Leggo displays, Wolfgang Puck Express for lunch!!!

Would like to see other parts of DTD this year.
