GOOD NEWS! GOOD NEWS!!! Check out my ticker!!! 21 days until we head to the MK!!!



Bill is such a sweetheart....believe it or not, this was his idea to surprise Faith for her birthday. I wanted to take her to Atlanta and do the American Girl Hotel package...he says "Why don't we just go to WDW for the weekend?" ....I couldn't get on the computer fast enough to price out rooms


Port Orleans, Royal Guest room is what I booked. Bill had a 30% off pin code....why let it go to waste





I'm just a little excited....

How cool is that! Will the boys be going too?

Loved the Royal Palace update. That was my favorite restaurant. I agree, waiters can make or break the cruise. Awesome how they entertained the kids.

You must have read my mind .....I was thinking about a mini-TR. We've never been to POR, so there will be LOTS of pics!

Let's hope they're as cute as they look! She first asked if we were going to the resort with the pretty red roof (aka...the Grand Floridian) I told her this trip was going to be short and sweet.

The boys will be in tow, also! They wouldn't miss it and would be furious with us if we took Faith and not them Last year when we went to the American Girl restaurant and ate lunch, they were really good sports and actually enjoyed it for their sister.

Glad you got a good laugh Too bad we don't have it on video...I could title it "What NOT to let your children do on a cruise..."

Yea!!!!! I am so excited for you and your family!!!! You MUST do a mini TR so we can see the Royal rooms! I'm dying to hear all about POFQ, too! I can't wait to see your photos.

We are heading down for Spring Break and we considered staying at one of the PO resorts. Alas, our beloved OKW won out instead. Maybe one day we'll stay at PO. If I can EVER figure out how to change my ticker, I'll update it. Yikes, I'm computer challenged!

I am soooo loving this TR. We leave for AKL end of March. This is the first TR that has gone into such great detail about this resort. Most people say " Its nice... look there's animals."

I guess it helped that you spent 3 days enjoying the resort before you cruise.

We did the dream last April with a double dip on CC it was awesome. I am hoping to cruise the Fantasy for 7 days in 2014 !

Can't wait to hear more about your trip.

OOH and where did you get ears for your daughters AG ??

It will definitely be "mini" since we're only going to be there a few days. I'm looking forward to totally checking out a new resort....I've never stepped foot on the grounds of POR, so this is uncharted territory for me

You're so kind...thanks Sometimes dad and I go a bit crazy with our cameras Part of our vacations revolve around the whole photography thing and sharing our pictures.

The 2 days at CC are awesome, aren't they?! I could have spent 3 days there!!!

The AG doll ears....well....don't look too closely or you will see some flaws Mom and I made them. We found a pattern online and then went to Wal-Mart and bought the stuff to make them. We bascially just used hot glue and felt. Not too hard. Once we got to WDW, we did the Minni outfit for dolls over at the Poly. The ears that came with the outfit don't stay on the head very well.
