I personally think the "flashing" part sounds like a man's ideal birthday!

Yep, that flashing thing worried me a little bit too.

Anyway, I'm glad you'll get to see Barry and family again! Don't tell him I said this, but they're super-awesome.

Of course, you are too, so you probably already knew that.

And I agree--you guys really need a vacation!
Welcome back...we missed you.

Oh yes, that wonderful t-shirt. If I hadn't been working that day, I would have worn the BEST t-shirt.

I kind of know they are super awesome, but I won't tell him anyway.

You and Mark really do deserve a great couple of trips with all that you're going through.

I just hope one of these days we get to run into one another!!

I almost went in Dec. last year for my 20th anniv., but I decided better when my mom was diagnosed. It just didn't seem like the right time to go, not sure I'd want to go in Dec., too much risk of it being cold and the parks close early.
I think I'm gonna have to stick to my Flower and Garden Festival and hopefully an Oct. trip some times soon with Pat and my boy.
I think it will be a fun first two days with more goodness to come.

My Disney bucket list consists of meeting all my favorite DISer's...and you are on that list.

I understand why you didn't go last December. How is your mom doing?

I really want to get for Flower and Garden one of these years...maybe 2014 when we take the kids for their one year anniversary.

Mark is going to be so surprised!

And y'all have some great restaurants already picked out!
I think Mark will be blown away with this surprise. I'm dying to try Chefs; we've put it on the list but never seem to get there.

I knew you guys were close but
Actually, airfare is right around $290 now; Andy has lots of points and may use them on Southwest for us (although I prefer flying out of O'Hare over Midway and I don't want him using his miles on us. I should be able to book by September 1 when we know if he has a job.

Have a fun DIS meet!

I've not been to the Milwaukee Zoo in about 25 years and am looking forward to it. Mark is especially looking forward to seeing some elephants. And we can't wait to have lunch with Barry and the gang.

Day 6

We are up to the second to last day of the trip. Why is it that it takes forever for the trip to get here, but then when you are there it goes all too quickly? Well, at least we know that we have Nickiland after we leave Disney.

So on to our plans for Day 6.

We will be up bright and early; I'll let Mark share a Fiber One bar with me (as we have a very important breakfast later) and then we will be heading to the Bus Stop to head here:



I want to be here by 7:45 a.m. for 8:00 EMH's.

I'm sure these will already be out:





First place we will head will be DUMBO, especially if we didn't get to do it the night we went for evening EMH's. This was the first Disney movie Mark and I bought when we were married...and it is all-time favorite.



From there, we will hit up as much as we can here:





Yes, I always pacify my husband and do the slow boat to China at least once every trip:



And, if we have time, we'll run over and go see:



Up next, a must-do breakfast

Day 6, Part 2

After finishing up as much of Fantasyland as we can, we have a very special date at 9:55 a.m. We have a date to have one of my favorite foods (yes, Tina, I know you don't like it):



I will be having my puffed french toast with some of these guys:







Unfortunately, those two cuties in that last picture won't be there this time.

After filling up on breakfast, we will probably stroll through the Emporium to make a note of anything we want to buy on our last day.

Then we have to head to the Doubletree Suites Hotel at Downtown Disney to pick up our rental car. Question for all you DISer's. How do you think we should get there? Bus? Cab? I welcome your suggestions.

We are hoping to pop over to the Swan or Dolphin to meet Shannon84 who will be there prior to marrying her sweetie, Tim, whom she met here on the DIS.

After that, we are going to be leaving Disney property and heading to one or two of the outlet malls and my FIRST Starbucks since we arrived in Orlando six days ago (Lord knows how I'll survive without my Starbucks until then).

We'll then drive back to Old Key West and start some of our packing since we depart the next day. If it's not too late, I'll probably suggest that Mark go take a swim

(nope, Andy won't be with him)

as I pack much better when he is not around getting in my way.

Next update: what do we do our last night at Disney?

That's a lot of updates!

Sounds like great plans! A yummy breakfast and fantasyland is the perfect way to start your last day!

My DH is the one who always gets stuck packing up the hotel room. I'm always too sad to do it very quickly.

I can't wait to hear all about the trips, but especially the surprise birthday trip!

Yummmmm, puffed french toast!

If you think you might be headed to the Dolphin to meet up with a DISer why don't you just reserve a rental car to pick up there? Save yourself a trip to DTD

As excited as I am about two weeks in Florida in September, I really have to admit I'm even more excited about the surprise birthday trip. Both will be grat though, I'm sure.

I could eat that puffed french toast every day for breakfast.

We actually had the car rented at the Dolphin with Alamo. However, after checking prices recently, I saved almost $125 for the ten days we have it by switching to Budget which is at the Doubletree.

It sounds like you've got a lovely morning planned! I have never been to breakfast at the Crystal Palace but the puffed french toast is making me rethink future plans.

Why not walk over to the Contemporary, hop on a DTD bus and then walk over to the Doubletree?

Well for $125 savings I'd make the switch too!

For the rental car, I'd walk to the Contemporary and then take a cab.
