Yes, first visit to a Disney park with my husband. I'm very nervous, on the one hand I am sure he it good "disney material", but on the other hand DLP is just not as entrancing as DL and WDW and we will be there in the summer with the crowds...
Will you be writing a report? If so, I look forward to it!

Yes, for someone who is on the fence about Disney, the crowds can be the thing to push them over into not enjoying it, unfortunately. I hope you’re able to avoid most of the chaos and long lines, and that you have a great time.

Sounds good to me. Maybe Poppy thought that he could leap a puddle in a single bound?

They get you every time! It’s not a common allergy, and they sometimes show up where you don’t expect them.

CS is another thing- It seems really hit or miss there sometimes.
In Andy’s (afwdwfan) TR, it was CS that did his sister in…she lost a day or so of park touring.

Do you think that guys would do something like that and then blame it on someone else? That doesn’t sound like us.

I’ll have some better pictures of him playing the game, battling villains, later in the trip report. I think he enjoyed collecting the cards as much as anything.

You need to go further back in the alley, farther than where James was in that picture, all the way to the end (which isn’t that far, it’s a short alley). You can hear music lessons being given on the second floor.

They were still “here to do stuff”. Although that was it for my dad. But yes, they were troopers!

One ride on Mission Space (the more intense side, whichever color that is) and I’m okay, but after a couple, I’m feeling it. And there’s a ride at Sea World Orlando, I forget the name of it, it’s kind of like Star Tours where you get in a big contraption that gets jostled around by hydraulic lifts…I was ready for that one to end back in ’05, I think it was.

Hmmm, I don’t remember seeing any, unfortunately. But I’m sure I wouldn’t have thought of them as strange! Keep looking for yourself in my pictures…I’m waiting for the day that some random DISer says “Hey, I was in your picture!” (DISmeets don’t count Rosie!)

Thank you. Yes, Main St. at WDW is probably not the place to bend over for an extended period of time -- there’s no telling how many people’s castle pictures she butted into?

I realized that I wrote “steppesisters” in my earlier reply to you. That’s because my DIS-friend Leisa, All7ofUs, who lived in Kazakhstan for a while, always wished that she had made her screenname “Steppesister” for the geography of where she lived and the tie-in to Disney.

Wow, I’m impressed that you made personalized autograph cards for the characters! They’ll love that. Yeah, the stepsisters might have something to say about that. Did you also put a glass slipper on Lady Tremaine’s? She’ll really have something to say!

I just saw an article on Disney restaurants in the USA Today, and they ranked the Flying Fish as the best seafood restaurant in Disney (considering all the parks and resorts globally).

What a fun update, well other than the annoying put on, take off, drizzle. That weather is annoying in a big way. Sorcerers really looks like fun, I think the E's would really enjoy it.

Big bummer that SM wasn't the best experience for Poppy, that is frustrating especially if was not so bad in the past.

Some really great photopass pictures, of all 4 of you but also of both couples. And nice to have a few adult only ones in the mix, even if all the kids were MIA at the time.

Lauren is allergic to peas? So is Pat and we all know what happened to her when she ate them at DTD. Good call on sending the peas back.

Too bad the whole group dispersed, but that allowed you to get some really cute couples pictures! Nice pics!!!!

And - so proud of the whole group for riding Space Mountain. Way to go Granny and Poppy! What did they think?

Yes - your self portrait pictures are pretty pathetic.

Love Judy's bag. So cute.

Way too late to count Judys.

Wow! It took me quite a bit of time, but I actually caught up! I was away from the DIS for a little while, and I paid for it when I realized how many pages I was going to have to read!

I can't remember everything I wanted to post about as I read...should've taken notes. As far as what I do remember:
- Very cool idea to have a special graduation trip. Might have to file that one away for 2019 (WOW - that's only six years away. Heaven help me...)
- I think the first part of your (whole group) trip looked awesome! I love a good beach vacation, and if you actually can combine one with a little bit of Disney, I think it's great! DH is a little like your kids...not his cup of tea. I doubt I'd be able to get him to spring for some time there, at least not if it took away park time!
- I'm going to have to manage to get to AKL on my next trip. We've never even been over there. Your pictures make me want to put it on my list!
- We stayed at POR this trip, and I fell in love with it! I did catch a part of one of YeeHaw Bob's shows. I really want to do a whole show next time. Again, DH would rather plan park time...gotta work on him.
- I laughed at your Admiral Akbar video. We're a big Star Wars family, so when I showed it to them it was a hit! They're actually doing a May the 4th event this year... DH is horribly jealous.
- Flying Fish looks yummy! Glad you had such a good meal!

Ok, the memory is bad and that 's all I can remember right now! I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but it probably isn't wise to comment on everything I've read up until now! I'm looking forward to seeing James play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. It's another thing we didn't get to do in October, and my oldest son is not very happy about it (he really didn't find out about it until we'd left). I'd like to see what it's all about.

I guess they are pretty limited on Space Mountain. Wouldn't quite be the same ride if those flashes were going off constantly to interfere with the darkness......

Wow, I’m impressed that you made personalized autograph cards for the characters! They’ll love that. Yeah, the stepsisters might have something to say about that. Did you also put a glass slipper on Lady Tremaine’s? She’ll really have something to say!
Ha! I love "steppesister"!

Yep - we have a personalized card for every character in every park and at every character meal we are doing (which is TOO MANY). I am a little OCD, I think.... DD loves, loves, loves meeting characters though, so I think we'll have fun with it.

I'm trying to think what I did for Lady Tremaine's. I know I turned the Cheshire Cat into Lucifer on one of them (I have two for her because she is also in FL, same for the sisters), but I can't for the life of me remember what I did with the other.

Hey, that's great! I am really excited to try it. We are doing several signature restaurants this trip, all of which (other than Le Cellier) will be new to us. I am most excited about FF and Jiko, I think.

That was the weather we had, what’re you gonna do? Yes, I could see the E’s playing SotMK.

He was a good sport about it, but I think it was a statement to my mom as much as anything, that even though we were “here to do stuff” there were just some things he’d have to sit out.

Thank you. Yes, that’s true…you don’t always need a whole group picture.

Yep-er. We’ve eaten snowpeas the last two days in a row, because in a few weeks Lauren comes home from college. We have to enjoy ‘em while we can.

Well, my mom liked it okay, but my dad could’ve definitely done without it!

Hi Jen! I saw you post on Dan’s thread and hoped that you’d find your way over here eventually. Thanks for putting in the effort to get caught up. I’m impressed!

I think I relayed the story of how it came about, it wasn’t a deliberate thought at first, but we’re glad that we can do it. They’ll make some great memories, and is there really a better graduation gift than that?

Great! I was hoping that this trip report could show a couple of different options that DISers/DVCers have available to them. But yeah, if DH is all about the parks, he could potentially be thinking “woulda, coulda, shoulda” while laying on the beach.

Oh my, you definitely have to get over there to explore the resort a little, look at some animals, and visit Boma or Sanaa. We love it there -- the day I found out they were building a DVC resort there was the day I knew I had to buy into DVC.

POR is easily my favorite moderate resort. (Of the 2 I’ve tried. ) It’s beautiful, the pool is a lot of fun, and it has Yeehaa Bob. If it weren’t for the size of our family, I wouldn’t mind staying there all the time.

I’m glad that I could pass on something that was a hit for you guys.

Who’s doing a May the 4th event…DHS? I must be a geek since I know that “May the 4th” = Star Wars Day since it sounds like “May the Force (be with you)”.

It's another thing we didn't get to do in October, and my oldest son is not very happy about it (he really didn't find out about it until we'd left). I'd like to see what it's all about.
I’ll have plenty of pictures coming up.
