Lots of people but with FP- no problem doing all we want.
The weather has been a little crappy. I know there is rain every afternoon but yesterday it rained most of the day from 12- 7and the day before not much better. Today is much better.
There was a light shower few min. Ago but sun is out again.
Great trip so far!

Thanks ANJALEE for all your work with this thread!! That poem was so cute!! How creative- you can definitely tell you're a teacher.

Sorry it is raining so much. Same thing here, but obviously, we are not on vacation. Thank you. I love running the thread. It's so much fun.

We don't do online check-in very often. ,post times we just wait until we get there. It usually takes us 5-10 minutes to check in when we re there so we don't usually see an advantage to checking in online.

DGD is with her daddy these two weeks, and so she calls me and say, daddy says we can't go to Disney this year. I tell her I was sad about not going to Disney, and she says, 'me, too'. Then she says, 'remember grammie last year you said that every year we go to Disney I could get a new outfit for Duffy?' I told her I remembered, but I meant that every year that we went to Disney, each time we went to Disney, not that we would go every year, but each time we went she could get a new outfit for Duffy.' She then asked, 'Can I get two outfits for Duffy next year?' And, I told her yes, but then I thought, wait you can get a new outfit for Duffy this year. Called the Disney Store by Dad's home and sure enough they had some outfits, so she picked out a sailor outfit for Duffy. She was very happy with that! So, 19.00 vs $$$$$ for Disney.... what a bargain!

Here's her self portrait with Duffy and his new clothes!


Have fun... and, as I like to say... it's only money!

Enjoy your holidays! Karen
What a great find! I am sure she was excited!

2013 Gas 3.50 Per Gallon
2003 Meals – DD Kids Meals, Me Eat Light
2013 Meals DD - I Now Full Blown Meals
2003 Accommodations – Extended Stay 210.00 9 Days
2013 Accommodations Resorts – Thousands $$$$$
2003 Clothes – DD Children’s World, Me Whatever I could find
2013 Clothes - DD – Specialty Shops, Me Still Whatever I can find
2003 Toys for the Trip – DD Coloring Books and Stuff Animals - Me Debit Card
2013 Toys for the Trip DD – Ipads, Iphones, DVD players, Computers - Me Still Debit Card




I have turned my DD into a Disney Addict – I feel for her Husband to be. BOY!! He will have a rude awakening and a long road of listening to BUT!!!! My Daddy took me to Disney every year. My Daddy did this and MY Daddy did that… WOW!!!!!


All I can say is her husband to be better like Disney or he is in trouble..

Wow! I can't believe the prices have about tripled in 10 years!!
You're right- you have totally spoiled her- Disney-wise.
I don't think she'd consider dating someone who didn't like Disney.
It would be a deal breaker!!

She's probably going to follow in the girl's babysitter's footsteps and do the DCP- Disney College Program!
There's a great thread on a college student who is finishing up a semester now.

My godmother and I were just saying that about me! Also whenever we pass the wedding pavilion she tells her daughter that its where I am getting married. Now all I need is the fiance (a boyfriend first would help too)!

I enjoy the Potato Soup and the Ruben Sandwich..

Can you tell me what day that would be? I would be happy to add it, but my brain is too tired this morning to think.


And a BIG Happy 4th of July to you and Midori!

I think this will be last time we go 4th of July week. It is so crowded!! I thought spring break was bad. NOT!! That is nothing compared to this. We just waited for about 40 min for TT. The wait Time said 70 min. Phew!!! Normally we would never wait that long for anything!!! I just can't believe the amount of people here. We had FP for Soarin and couldn't get another b/c we wanted to leave after lunch.

What I don't understand is... We parked in row 5 and weren't even here at RD. so we thought wow!! Everyone must be at MK today. We thought we were lucky until we saw the waits. Even for spring break the waits aren't 70 min. That early in the morning. It was only 9:30 when we got to TT. There must A LOT of people staying on property!!

Well just needed to vent a little. That's my opinion so far for July. For all you July regulars... Please tell me it gets a little better!!
