Hi Tammie! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed both the trip and writing about it. For a brief moment it looked like we were going to stay a few more days but then the DH realized that there was just too much work for him to miss so we're still coming home Sunday. I'm sure our paths will cross again. Hopefully in Disneyland!!

I did! I read it all in one sitting! The kids are so cute! I love how Sarah felt like a beautiful princess! So precious - you know, that will stick with her forever!

Too bad - we are just missing each other. It's a Date! Disneyland it is!

I was wondering - do you feel like you get enough value from your AP? What is the "break even" point - or are the extra discounts enough to make a difference?

Thanks for the nice comments on the kids. Sarah does know she is our princess and she's more than happy to play the part. I've got some photopass pics to put up and am going to start doing them tonight.

We didn't renew our passes this year due to the big price jump and my DH was like you got 6 trips in one year!! You should be happy!! So Christmas it is for our next trip.

Our break even point was after our 2nd trip since our first trip on them was 5 days and our 2nd trip was also 5 days. The discount was nice to have because we seemed willing to eat more in the park than back at our room which is what we normally did. I didn't really keep track of my spending so I can't tell you if it was that big of a savings but it was nice when they'd ask if I had an AP and I could actually say yes and get a better discount than I could with my Disney Visa. We had the Premium AP so no black out's and the biggest savings.

I orginally wasn't going to order the Photopass CD from this trip but when I realized I could get both May and February trips I jumped at the chance and ordered the CD. I've got it so these next few posts will be full of nothing but pictures. I hope you enjoyed them all as much as I did when they were taken.


Meeting one of our favorite Toys....





That crazy Goofy. I don’t know how much I’d trust riding in a plane with him.





PLUTO!!

Next up Princess Tiana





My Princess again. I really loved this new border.

The next Princess holds a special place in Sarah’s heart. No matter how much I tried to get her to like Cinderella (my favorite) she had a mind of her own. Which I’m actually very proud of, now let’s hope she continues on that path. Her favorite Princess is of course the very lovely Belle!! Sarah actually takes after her in that they both love books (Belle loves to read and Sarah loves to be read to). I don’t remember if I said this earlier in the report or not but Belle asked Sarah if Cinderella was her favorite (since was wearing a Cinderella dress and all) and Sarah’s exact response was “No, she’s my mommy’s favorite. Your mine!!” At least she’s honest!!

A little blurry but still a cute picture…







She was sooo excited to see Belle she just wouldn’t stand still!!!





I told you I loved this border!!





He was telling her he was 5.



Sarah sneaking back in.







Somehow this one ended up out of order but we do love Ariel.
