Lily doesn't like any of the attractions and rides except Country Bears but she loves lights and parades -- especially seeing Donald Duck in the parades. So on 12/26 we are going to see the Osborne Lights and one day we'll go over to Magic Kingdom to see the parade and castle and of course the Bears. The crowds are horrible that week but since we aren't going to have to deal with any of the lines except for the Bears, I think we'll be okay. Jeanne said "Only for Lily!"
She doesnt like the Tea Cups or Carousel? Dumbo? She has good taste, Donald is my fav too One day I'll get to see Osbourne Lights! Sounds wonderful.
Love the pics of Bob putting together the house! Priceless!

Last summer she really was not happy with any of the rides ... even Dumbo, the Carousel and Small World. At Disneyland a few weeks ago it was worse. She didn't want anything to do with them. I'm sure as she gets older, she'll start to enjoy them. We'll just keep trying.

Teena- my niece lives about 1/2 hour away from DLR and she takes my little nephew often. He will not go on the attractions either. He loves to go to "Mickey's House" and takes it all in every time they visit but no way will he step his little foot on any ride. Each kid is different, his cousin is a little whirlwind

Welcome.....BC CL wasn't our first but cetainly has become our favorite. If you have time go back through this thread and the older ones and you'll feel like you completely know the place when you show up.

You are going to LOVE it!!! My oldest turns 21 this December, she is looking forward to our May visit at BC...................since she will be old enough to walk down to World Showcase and order a drink in any country she chooses!!!

The resort really is perfect, especially if you enjoy EPCOT!!

When Bob and I see the lines for the characters on the Disney cruises, we just shake our heads. Bob says no way will he spend his cruise in lines for the characters. I laugh because all Lily will have to say is "PopPop I want to see Cinderella" and there goes PopPop and Lily in the line. Thank goodness right now she likes to look at the characters from a distance. The minute you get close to them, she shakes her finger at them and says "no no no no no".

I'm really excited! I was originally going to stay at POR...but now that my (ex) boyfriend isn't coming and my sister is, we have a bigger budget (I was going to pay for everything for him...now that my sister will be taking his place it'll save me a few hundred on his tickets and dining!)

We considered staying at BLT...but the thought of being so far away from Epcot made me sad! PLUS I'm close to Hollywood Studios...which is my favorite park!

Bob, I feel your pain!!!!

I had to put a small kitchen together for Sofie one Christmas and between the parts and the stickers it took me like 4 hours!! If after an hour someone told me they would put it together for me for $1,000 I would of taken them up on it!!

So glad that Lily and Jeanne will be there at Christmas. How much fun is that going to be!! Nothing better!!

These pictures are great! And, Teena, the ironic thing is that, in the long run, these pictures will be treasured by Lily even more than the castle. Long after she's outgrown the toy she'll have these pictures as a testament to how much her grandfather loves her. The candid pictures always tell a better, truer story than the posed ones.

Welcome! I hope you enjoy it as much as everyone here does. Be sure to check out the first page of this thread. It has a great deal of information.

We will be celebrating our 200 Days to Disney mark this weekend. Unfortunately I re-injured my knee the weekend before Halloween and I may have a tear that is not showing up on the MRI. Today I am going to go get my knee drained and a cortizone shot. If this doesn't work then surgery.....

My only goal that I told my doc is to be walking normally by June for our Disney trip!!!! I've been in pain for 3 weeks and now I'm on crutches and I walk a lot in my job. My focus today while getting the shots will be me sitting by the pool at the Y&BC while sipping on a cocktail in the sun.....

(By the way I injured my knee up at my parent's place in Michigan while helping my DD16 clean a kayak that she swore had a spider in it. My knee snapped one way while lifting the kayak filled with water while the kayak weight went the other way...who knew.)
