I was 5 for my first trip and every time i ride the Tomorrow Land Speedway i still think of my first ride on it with my Mom and how we bashed against the rails the entire time.
Thats great to hear!! Our DS will be 14.5 mos on our trip and two different people told me I'm being very "brave" bringing him that young!

Even being in the same time zone, going to disney all bedtime routines were out the window for us.

We will be doing that drive as well but from a little closer cause we are in MD. We left in early evening so that we could drive through the night as well. That way we didnt start hearing are we there yet until we were about 4 hours away.

We will have a rental car but not having to buckle her into the car seat etc for a quick trip to pick up food is a nice convenience!

We took our DD for her very first pictures with Santa in DTD and love those pictures. We have the photopass for this trip so hope to get them done again. I don't think we'll get the CD in before Christmas but I can take her multiple times so we can pick the best pictures for our Christmas Cards. They took a bunch last time and they are so much nicer than what we can get done locally at the malls. I love seeing the size of her fingers on his.

This was from her first trip:
Aww. We loved Animal Kingdom lodge too. Waking up and seeing all those animals right on the resort was soo cool. And the quiet peacefulness was wonderful. Miss that place for sure. What time were you there when you did pics with Santa at DTD? I think we are skipping the phot pass cd this year because we only plan to be in the parks three days and mainly we plan to scurry around so we can get the kids on their fav rides. That way the rest of the trip we can relax. When did you say you were going this year? Just curious if they will have xmas decorations up when we are there.

We were there the first week in December for these photos and are going the same week this year. I think I read somewhere that the decorations are usually up by the middle of November but I'm not certain and I don't know when Santa arrives for photos. They also had photos with Santa in the Magic Kingdom on our last trip but we found the lines were shorter at Downtown Disney.

Look under the Creative Community. I recognize your user name from somewhere on here. Photography? Running? Those are my usual hang outs on the Dis. Maybe the picture of the day thread?

Have a blast at MNSSHP! We did it a few years ago and had a blast! Can't wait to do it again someday.

Rant

This is just a rant. I'm tired of having my words misinterpreted and being accused of spending every dime we have along w/ wanting to do things because others are. One of the few things I am proud of myself is not following the Jones. Ggrrrrr....

That's just silly. Not your rant the accusations...if you enjoy it and you have the money no one should be giving you problems. Enjoy yourself and any activities or things you do and perhaps consider that the people making the accusations are jealous that you are doing what you want and maybe they don't have the same opportunities. Or I could be totally off base...but sending lots of good vibes your way to help you to feel better about things.

I did it...momma and Lilly going to DL

Well, most of my family and friends are telling me I'm crazy but I just booked a trip to DL for Lilly and me in December. I asked the hubs and he said if it would make me happy to do it....he just deployed....again. We're only going for a few days, staying at the Grand....wish me luck, send good vibes...I'm nervous about the trip. PTR/TR link in my signature.
