Hi everyone! I found our shiny new thread. Back from a very nice and cool beach trip. Had a fantastic time. Came home to 95 degrees. Now back to my upside down house. Remodels are fun, but extremely time consuming and MESSY! hope all is well with everyone!

That's a great price! How did you get it?

Hi! Welcome to the crazy lady's trip! Just stick around and get to know all of us better. Will make meeting everyone much easier. At first it is a little scary, but believe me, you won't have much time to stay that way. We pack a lot into our trip. Oh, and our ring leader Beth is away for almost 3 weeks. After she gets back, be sure to let her know you want on the list.

One way to ease into it is to come with someone you already know. That's what I did the first year. She came with me again this year, but next year I'll be coming "alone". It's loads of fun! If you want to "ease into" the group activities, I think the Meet & Greet on Thursday evening and the Castle photo are a good start. Then you can just look at your "bucket list" of Disneyland meals and add on any of the group meals that you like. The scavenger hunt is a lot of fun (if you like that sort of thing) too.

"ringleader".... snort.... I was gonna call her our "den mother".

And since it's supposed to be 100 or higher the next several days, I'm off to the bead store and grocery store while it's still fit for humans outside. Toodles!

I have been every year as it is a great Disney fix that doen not require a plane ride. Sorry I missed the opportunity to meet up with some Divas. Things have been so busy at work that I am way behind on this thread or I might have known. I will be staying at the Grand California. My sister who lives in Nevada and maybe a sister-in-law may come along for the fun as well. So Hello
OH! I think I met someone from Gig Harbor at the MouseMeet! I wonder if it was you?? The PNWMM has been great each year...we usually help each year...this year I helped at registration when you came in & my daughter was a dole whip server!
My daughter will be a senior this year, but I think has mentally departed! It feels like an empty next already!

Ya, just send me a PM, and let me know your size, and I will snoop to see if I have any left.



Just found out today that my DDKaitlyn (18 1/2) has Valley Fever. She has been having severe pain under her left rib. Valley Fever is a disease that settles into your lungs. It's prevalent in our area, but still rare. I had it when I was 24, but I only know a few other people who have had it. Anywhos, she is going to have to take it really easy for the next 6 weeks before she goes to Australia. It doesn't really go away for 6 months, and that is how long she will be gone. I think she will be taking medication the whole time she is there. Our doctor is not even sure if they have the test for Valley Fever in Australia? But he seems to think she will be OK. Going to get more info on her next appointment next week. Just glad it didn't happen while she was gone.

Oh and today I turned 56. Definitely part of the senior citizen crowd..... But young at heart! I still loves me ToT, Screamin, Space, Thunder, Splash, Indy and now i get to try Racers!!!

Have a nice day!

Happy Birthday!! See you next month!!!!

People get valley fever here, too. I think it's more common here than there though. Hopefully the meds will help her while she's gone!!

Aren't they the cutest? And isn't Kandace the nicest?
Welcome to all the new girls! The trip is so mcuh fun. What I love most is seeing old friends, eating and drinking and of course DL.

Happy Birthday Mel! Love you friend.
(sorry to hear about Kaitlyn having valley fever)

It is so hot here, I am so sick of it. It's been over 100 every day this week with no relief in sight. Blech! I hope Beth is surviving summer in Michigan without A/C.

Mel Happy Birthday!! And girl you are still young AND young at heart. I would NEVER even guess you are close to that age and let me tell you I am 10 years younger and I KNOW you have way more energy that I do!! Hope you had a super fun b-day! So sorry to hear about Katilyn and hope she has fun on her trip!

Nice to meet all the new gals. I went on the trip in 09 and 10 but missed the 11 trip and was THERE during the last one but with my family so looking forward to this year's! My daughter has a cheer comp that weekend but hoping to spend a few events with you all!

I agree about the hot weather! I am SO ready for it to start cooling off. Katy has cheer prac for 3 hours every night and I really worry about them in this heat!

Have a great night everyone!!

Well, I see it's page 7 and I'm finally checking in. Better late than never, I suppose.

Happy Birthday, Mel! Hope you had a fantastic day - and thanks for all you do for us on our Diva Trips. We always looks mah-vah-lous due to the beautiful shirts you create for us.

Welcome to all the new Divas! It's so fun to meet new Disney fans. If some of you are going to DLR before the Diva trip, let us know on this thread and there will probably be some girls you can meet before the 'big trip'. I'm not a true local, but I do try to come for the mini-meets and say hi.

Hugs to Jill, who lost her mom. And sending healing thoughts to Mel's daughter and anyone else who is under the weather or has a hurt foot.
And sending cooling thoughts to all of us - yikes, who turned up the heat?

Thanks for all of your well wishes!

Jill, if you read this, I am so very very sorry to hear about your Mom. I know how you feel, and even though my Mom has been gone for a little over a year, I still miss her tremendously. The biggest of hugs, prayers and comfort to you sweet lady.
