Please let us know when they get it so that we are sure it made it to the right place. If not, we can track it down while we are still here.
I sent you some texts of my friends reaction. She got it

I don't want to spoil anything, but if you were able to see the 7 dwarves, when did you get in line and how long did you wait? Not sure how much time I want to spend waiting there (NEXT WEEK!)

Hope Jill is enjoying F&W! That's one of the things I'm looking forward to most!

We did not see them. Put it out on FB, and you will get some help, I'm sure. Sorry we can't be of help.






Last day in Disney World. We opted to stay out late last night to watch Hallowishes from Polynesian Beach and then hook up with Marc and Anita when they arrived. Got back to Pop around 12:30. Plan to let everyone sleep until they wake up on their own. We're not going to try to do a park, but rather let the girls swim, play on the playground, and such until DIS meet time. After we decided we'd stay out to meet Marc and Anita, we decided to just leave all of our packing until today, since we'd have plenty of time, so that is the task for the day. Gotta do last minute shopping at Everything Pop, of course. I promised my class I'd bring back plenty of candy.

Lots of people are just arriving, so we wish them magical times. For those not on Facebook, we got to do all of the new part of Fantasyland yesterday! You will like it.

Soon it will be back to reality and to looking forward to the next trip! That will be March for me, and Jill is still unsure. The in-law trip is back and forth. Jill doesn't want to go with the in-laws, and John doesn't want to go to Disney World. They may work out a shorter trip somewhere else that can help them both out. Only time will tell.

Have a great day, DIS friends!

Oh, I can't wait to see all the new stuff in Fantasyland!

Glad to hear you got a lot done on your last park day.

Have a wonderful time at the DISmeet today! Hugs all around from me!

I woke up at 6am wishing I was leaving for WDW. I will be thinking about all of you at 1:30pm this afternoon.
I hope it's a gorgeous sunny day and the girls can have some fun pool time.

Hugs for your last day.

Safe travels back home!

Travel home safely MeMom, Jill and family. I have enjoyed your FB updates each day. I'm sad we are just missing you guys.

Have a safe trip home! I can't wait to see your pictures. Hopefully, we'll be able to experience the new part of Fantasyland when we go on the 25th. : )

Back at home. The sound of Disney music has been replaced with the sound of the washer running. Palm trees no longer line my pathways. Tennessee changed colors while I was gone, and my drive home from AL was painted with orange, yellow, gold, red, and purple. Very pretty.

I can't complain about the trip being over. It was certainly nice to have nine days to enjoy it all. I spent time with each of the girls individually, and sometimes I had 2 out of 3 at once. We enjoyed seeing Jill's friends learn more about what Disney World has to offer. We enjoy spending time with our cousins. I didn't get to have any time with just Jill, but we had some laughs, and it was sure heartwarming to see her back up and about and enjoying Disney World. We were so lucky to be there on the day they opened all of the new part of Fantasyland. We got to see Ariel back in her fins, we rode her ride, and we ate at Gaston's Tavern - all on opening day - so that was cool. We got to see new and old DIS friends the day we left. So glad our days overlapped. We got to visit with a cast member who grew up with my kids at church and school. She told us to give her advice on what to do and see while she is there. We told her to be sure to resort hop during the Christmas season. We were able to spread a little Disney magic for some friends of our own Stasieki. They are going through some really tough times, so it was nice to have the opportunity to bless them in a small way.

Next trips: No Christmas trip. For me will be in March. Not sure about Jill. That in-law trip keeps milling around in the background. Who knows? We will do Disney Vero next summer, and since we're planning to go to Sea World, it is possible that we will spend the night at a Disney resort that night before going back to Vero the next day. I can't imagine us being that close and not doing something in WDW. We could watch EWP and Wishes from Poly beach the night of Sea World, then we could swim, do DTD, and maybe do Chef Mickey's the next day. Sounds like a good way to get a dose of Disney in without spending money on the parks. I will have my AP, but Jill didn't renew, since she didn't know if they'd be going back before December 2013. We're trying not to spend much money in the summer so that we can do a long Christmas trip.

So for now, it's back to business. Time to prepare for the cooler/colder months ahead - Trunk or Treat, Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas gifts and decorating. Then will come the dreaded months of January and February. Those 59 days seem to last forever. Mornings are dark and cold. Skies are gray. Trees are bare. Days are short. That's why I love those spring trips so much! It is thrilling to see life again and feel the warmth of the Florida sun.

I feel so very, very blessed. I thanked God all the way home for the people in my life and the things that I have. I am so grateful for my children, for my little girls, for the material things we are able to enjoy, and for good times together. I am thankful for friends here at home and in our Disney community. I am blessed far beyond what I deserve every single day, and I am so appreciative of it all.

Have a beautiful Sunday, friends!

Well said, I am so happy that you were able to have such a wonderful extended trip. With the colors, it made that drive back to Tenn a little more tolerable

Thanks to you all, I finally signed up for fb and was able to follow along on this adventure...even saw a couple pics of you. That made my day.

Have a wonderful Fall and holiday season and I will be following along as always.

Have a blessed week.

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip! It's awesome that you all got to be there for the opening of new Fantasyland! My dad hasn't mentioned anything about it so you probably beat him to it. I can't wait to hear all about it.
