I hope you are planning on doing a TR? Even just a little one .

Welcome home, jetlag sucks hence my thread about how to avoid it .

Can't wait to hear what you thought of everything.

1 week sounds so much better than 279 days!


What are the things you do every visit? Have you made plans to do anything different this time? I'm always looking for new ideas.

Have a great trip!

279 days does not take long!

We do the normal, Christmas day a late breakfast at Cape May Cafe, visit the Grand Floridian to smell the Gingerbread House then a boat across to Wilderness Lodge and the unlimited cookies, then Sleigh ride at Fort Wilderness with dinner at Trails End and then off to Magic Kingdom till late.

On NY day the Segway at Fort Wilderness.

Apart from that we have around 65 ADR, and have fun riding the buses, boats, train and Monorail and visit our regular servers and CM's some of whom we have known for ten years.

This year in EMH at MK we want a photo at the Main Street clock at 3 am.

Explore the new Fantasyland section and pass our record of 24 times through Mickey's Philharmagic!

And start planning for next year!

Shuttergirl - You did ask me to do this. I just updated my TR. I'll assume that this could be the last time I need to do this as you'll be away after tomorrow.

Feel free to wander into that thread anytime (or not at all).

I'm still coming to terms with these big numbers:
- +10 years (Were they all DVC?)
- 65 ADR's (Top 5 please!)
- 3am Main Street clock (Have I missed a Disney reference here or is just because of EMH???)
- 24 times through Mickey's Philharmagic (How long has that taken you?)

Yes, and we have no inclination to go anywhere else!

- +10 years (Were they all DVC?)
First visit to WDW in 1994, been DVC members since 1999.

- 65 ADR's (Top 5 please!)
Cape May Cafe for breakfast and dinner, Captain's Grille for breakfast, Trails End for dinner, Liberty Tree Tavern and all the rest!

- 3am Main Street clock (Have I missed a Disney reference here or is just because of EMH???)
The EMH hours at MK we like are 23rd and 28th December, open until 3am

- 24 times through Mickey's Philharmagic (How long has that taken you?)
That was last trip, the year before was 23.

I'm hoping for a Trip Report the way you want to write it.


(And if you're lurking on mine, I'd love if you posted!)

Hey PIO, I'm all caught up and have left a comment over there.

I think you should keep putting a reminder in this thread, I'm sure I'm not the only one enjoying reading along.
