I like the 60's. But the 60's and 70's are just too far from the parking lot if you have a car. 60's is perfect is you don't have a car.

The 70's is a bit more confusing but the 60 's is actually my favorite by the Hippy Dippy pool.

Finally caught up!! I think I originally posted on page 14 or something...time flies when you're reading an awesome TR!!

-I love all your PP pictures!
- I put on every hat and pair of ears in every store...the DBF can't stand it!
- I MUST try the Japanese restaurant you went to...ADR for my next trip WILL BE THERE
-My other ADR will hopefully be at Be Our Guest. It looks so beautiful in there
-OK...now...maybe I am crazy or I fall asleep every time I ride the Great Movie Ride, but HOLY COW-BOY! I have never seen a cowboy nor have I ever seen anything set on fire...I am determined to see this twist on the ride

I hope you are safe and warm in the midst of WS Rockey. I know down here in Normal the roads were terrible, and I saw on the radar that Elgin (where my parents live) was also yucky.

Thanks for making my half-snow-day so enjoyable as I got caught up on your TR!

Catching up here...

I'm with Andy and Des, no WAY would I would be getting up at that ungodly hour on vacation! I am not a morning person, more of a night owl actually.

Kona breakfast is one of my absolute favorites! It never disappoints! Love all of the MK photopass pics, especially the sassy one of you with fairy wings!!!!!!

Oooh, the Little Mermaid ride looks awesome! Can't wait to ride this when we go back to Disney. The theming looks fantastic.

Super cute pics of Andy and Des too with Mickey and in front of the castle.

Storybook Circus looks fabulous! Again, amazing theming going on there. So, is this a "Grumpy" reference here....Grumpy imitating Grumpy? Too funny!

Love all the crazy hat pics you guys took while waiting for the kids. You all are like a bunch of wild teenagers! I think you and Nicki must be a bad influence on your poor DH's...

The Peoplemover is seriously one of my favorite things to do at MK, I love it! Nice tat also Kat!

Ugh, Space Mountain does not agree with me either! Last time we rode and I swear I dislodged my intestines and relocated a couple of internal organs. Too jerky and I'm so tense when I ride it because I'm trying to brace for whichever drop, curve or turn is coming.

Ok, that caught me up to day 4! I'll be back to fininsh up, promise sweet Kathy.

On way to accountant for taxes (hate this), and will try to come back later. But just had to say we are at 99...double digits...for girls trip in June. This also means the wedding is only 107 days away.

Yay for double digits!!! I hear you on the tax time. Hate it. Ours aren't even difficult really. It's just the whole idea of getting everything together and making the appointment to go have it done.
I was trying to remember and I don't think we have ever gotten the cowboy scene on GMR.
I think you chose wisely for POP and Epcot. I probably would try to squeeze DHS in the morning solely for a ride on TSM then grab a boat ride on over to Epcot. That's only because I forever am trying to squeeze the most out of every minute as if I'll never go back. Enjoy your day at FandG.

DHS........do I know you or what??? For whatever reason I am not as big on the Christmas decorations at DHS compared to the other parks, but the Osborne Lights sure make up for it!!!

And I know if there is no picture that it didn't happen. There was a picture. But it was so awful that I deleted it from my phone.

So my question to you is this. Actually....I'm going to make it two questions:

1) Which park would you go to if you just had one day? MK? Epcot? DHS? AK?

2) Which resort out of the following would you pick: POR-Riverside, Pop, CSR or Saratoga Springs?
I know I am a little late to this, but I would have to say Epcot for the park because there is enough to do there to fill up all your available time, and for you I would suggest staying at CSR because if you stay somewhere you aren't familiar with, you are going to want to tour your hotel and get pictures, which is going to take away from your limited time there.

We will stay one night at POP! We are NOT fans of the values at all, but it is only one night and it was our cheapest option with the AP discount (POR was $145, CSR was $135 and POFQ was $200). I've made an ADR for dinner on Sunday night at the Yachtsman. We will have breakfast on Monday, April 8, at 7:30 at Boma and then we will go to EPCOT. We have never done Flower & Garden and I've been wanting to for years. So we may not do as many attractions as we'd like as we'll concentrate on a lot of that, but I'll be back two months later so it works for us.
Pop? Really? It's like I don't even know who you are anymore.............

Isn't this a business trip? I would think the cost wouldn't matter...........sounds like a business expense to me??? That is a very aggressive plan going from Pop to AKL for Boma, and then all the way to Epcot. Hope you have good bus karma so you don't lose too much of your F&G time.

It surprised me as many times as Des has been to Disney that there was so much she had never done.
There is so much to do at Disney, it is very easy to find things you haven't done before. I still have a list that is much too long!!!

EPCOT and POP so

I had to get caught up! I'm so jealous that you have a couple of trips to Disney coming up so soon. I think that you made a great choice of which park to visit. The Flower & Garden Festival is absolutely beautiful and I'm sure that the addition of the food booths will make it even more fun. As far as Pop goes, we toured the resort a few years ago and it has a fun vibe.

Very fun DHS updates! We have always enjoyed our meals at Sci-Fi even if, like you said, it's not fine dining. The atmosphere more than makes up for it.

2014 trip report: Disney dangled the visual weinee and Mickeystoontown gobbled it up! Our two week adventure!

Yuck... just got done with that myself, this morning. It hurt pretty bad, but then I remembered to add DD as a dependent. Totally spaced on that one for a little bit. It still hurt, but not quite as bad.

FInally caught up! Between the snow storm and a virus I got I have been so far behind!

First off, yay for being cancer free for 6 years! I wish you many more years of great health!

Love all the holiday photos! Makes me ready for christmas!

I think for one night Pop will be ok. It is not my favorite hotel. I didn't care for the sheets on the bed, but I would not be opposed to staying there again in the future. I agree Epcot would be the park to visit. The flower festival is so pretty. I love all the topiaries! You will have a great time.

So many exciting things coming up for you so soon! You must be getting so excited for the wedding!

on the double digits. I can now say I'm going to Disney this month! Holy cow I am going to WDW this month and I have nothing prepared! Hope all went well for tax time. I have to say I was happy when we walked out this time.

I love the head bands you and Des are wearing. Those are really cute. I would get some, but I get headaches from headbands.
