May there be many more vacays for you...and may they include Disney. Remember....there is Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo (and Shanghai to come) castles to shoot out there.

Catch you round the Dis.



Not sure I will every make it Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. I can dream right? Thanks so much for following along and giving this trip report life. Its much appreciated.

Thanks for taking us all on your journey and thanks so much for your wonderful pics. You have inspired this Aussie for sure.

And what a wonderful pic to finish with!

Take care
Thanks Minnie Sue Oz. Thanks for the comments on the last photo. Even if it was very blurry and out of focus I will take your kind comments.

See you around the Disboards.

You sure ended on an up note. I always enjoy your pictures but my favorite is the Main Street Cinema followed by Monstro and then the one through the door.

Oh, your secret is safe with me

I know how you feel about the nostalgia and feelings evoked at DL - my happiest place on earth too. On our last trip we ended each day riding Soarin'.

I'm glad your wife is making the DVD of your trip. What a wonderful remembrance for you and your family.

Good thing we have DIS friends who continue to go to DL and are kind enough to do trip reports when they return. I think reports like yours bring back memories of our own trips and it is great to see the parks from another perspective.

I'll have to keep a look out for I'm Mikey's TR. I'm not always good about looking for new threads. I am really having fun lurking on the picture of the day thread.

Your next trip will be here before you know it!

Cheers!
TK

How heart felt!!! you wrote an astonishing report.
i hope you get to go back sooner then later with your amazing family!
your pictures are definitely book worthy! Stop selling yourself short!!!


Chicago is very expensive, great place to visit, delish food, fabulous place for pictures, not so good on residency! Can't wait to be able to move!!

(I don't think I've shared this one yet....)

I'd love to see the videos!? Remember the Wolfs dance to Disney videos??? I can see your family doing the same!! ha!

East sounds great!! have to look into where politics didn't kill the financial state! Like Chicago is at the moment, and not seeing a bright light at the end of the tunnel!!! the crime here is out of control. Would like to go somewhere i am not paying an arm and leg for grammar school, property taxes. High school?!? can't think of that right now... Public schooling here is out of the question.

Oh no your report is over?!?! Well Mike thanks for taking us along for the ride. It was great and your pictures are absolutely beautiful. I started reading your report before my family's first DLR trip this past August (it got me even more excited!). I had planned on posting a short summary of our trip but I still have not! So while we were sad to leave DLR and my brother's family, I have enjoyed your trip updates since our return.

Oh both my kids are in college - one a senior and the other a sophomore. We have still managed a family summer vacation so far. Who knows what the future will hold for vacations as a family, but we made some great memories on our DLR one!

Take care,
Kerry

It would be fun to share for sure but not sure the family would be up for it. We are fairly private people. I have to be careful on how many family shots I share. I really like the Wolf Dance videos. He does a great job on them. I wonder what they are up to lately? My wife does a wonderful job as well. She has come up with some unique songs and video recordings. She really pours her heart into it.

Sounds like Chicago is going through some difficult times? That's sad.
