Yea! nine days.

Love that last picture. I agree too, spring trips are wonderful. Those pictures from the BWV are so beautiful.

Love your Dad's shirt at Epcot, Go Marquette!

Yes it is! So many good memories.

Awww bummer! But won't you be there for Star Wars Weekends? So atleast that is something kind of cool.

Thank you! As excited as I am to stay at BLT, I am sort of going to miss the Boardwalk. We will definitely have to go walk over there some day when we're at Epcot. Or go for Welcome Home Wednesdays.

YES, Sweet Sixteen again!

YAY, it is officially SPRING BREAK!!! And it is actually warmer than 40 degrees here today which is something to celebrate considering how cold it's been this March.

Anyway, it's hard to believe that this PTR is coming to an end because we only have 3 DAYS TO GO UNTIL WE LEAVE!!!

Dad talked to Emma a little bit the other day and we're still trying to figure out when we can meet up with her. She has to work until 10:30 on Monday night so there is a possibility she might come over to Bay Lake Tower after work and spend the night since we're planning on going to the Magic Kingdom for EMH Tuesday morning. We also found our her work schedule for the week and she only has off Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday (she couldn't really ask off for 2 whole weeks since Mom and Claire are going down next Sunday, aka the day I come home). On Wednesday or Friday we will probably go meet her/visit her at Downtown Disney. Even though I haven't really talked to her much recently, she did post on her blog that she is super excited for when we come. I am too.

Since this will probably be my last update before we go, I wanted to make one last list of other random things I would like to do when we're there. Most of it consists of visiting other resorts!

Sarah's Random List of Must-Dos

Ride the monorail to the Polynesian...this should not be too difficult to accomplish since we'll be on the monorail loop anyway (WOOT!) and we always love visiting. Maybe I could get a dole whip there since, you know, I've never eaten a dole whip before...

See the Electrical Water Pageant...we haven't seen this since we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge a couple years ago and I feel like we sort of have to see it since we'll be in the MK resort area.

Ride the boat to the Wilderness Lodge...It's kind of funny because Dad said something about doing this the other day.

Visit Art of Animation...I just think this resort looks so adorable and I love seeing everyone else's pictures of it! I have to see the Nemo section in person!

Go to the Boardwalk/Beaches and Cream...OK, so last April we had talked about going to B&C and didn't get around to it until our last day. Unfortunately it was pretty crowded and we didn't feel like waiting. So hopefully we can make it over there this time (maybe for lunch if we are at Epcot some morning? Who knows.) Plus, I just really want to see the Boardwalk again. I'm kind of going to miss it. Another possibility for if we visit the Boardwalk is to go to Welcome Home Wednesdays. I guess they redid the show now so it might be fun to see. But, if we don't make it to that it's OK too.

I think that about covers everything. I know it seems like a lot for only having 5 full days, so we'll see what we can all accomplish. Regardless of what happens we will have a good time.

My goal for today is to get a majority of my packing done since I'm actually going to Michigan for Easter and won't be back until Sunday evening. So, I hope all of my DIS friends have a very Happy Easter!!!

A few weeks ago I posted something here about our plans for our arrival and the first few days of our trip.

I had intended to do something about plans for the rest of the trip, but the fact is, even though we are leaving tomorrow, we really don't have many plans. Sarah has listed a lot of the things she would like to do, and also mentioned our two ADR's for Thursday and Saturday nights. If we go get to visit each of the parks on Tuesday and Wednesday, we will probably be doing a lot of playing it by ear the rest of the week.

We will definitely want to do a rope drop at EPCOT to do Soarin and Test Track without massive lines, and will almost certainly do a second AM EMH at the MK. We might also want to start a day at the Animal Kingdom. But, what we do on which day will probably depend on how much we do the first two days, and how the weather plays out. As of now, it looks like we may be dodging showers and storms for much of the week, and that could affect our plans. It would be nice to be able to visit Epcot on a sunny day because the flowers always look nicer in the sun. But, we may not get that chance. Hopefully we won't have to deal with any all day rains like Sarah did two years ago.

Last time I checked, doing Test Track before Soarin' was the way to go (although I don't check for single riders).

Hope you all have the bestest time!
