Don't know how to quote on my phone!

I plan to take him, we want to show him our old haunts and he wants to see Norway as well.

Yes, the wall was up, and we went through Checkpoint Charlie and saw some of East Berlin. Very depressing, and nerve wracking for DH, who had to be in uniform the whole time. You could see cameras on every building, and I am sure a good many of them were trained on us!

Looking forward to reading about the new Germany, so I can get some ideas on how best to plan our trip.

I'm guessing you saw some Disney stores while over there. I know there's one in Venice so maybe there are others.

I've been when the wall was up... but that was when I was 10, so it didn't have as great an impact. We also went not long after it came down... that was... odd.

Interesting... I never even thought of that. But... yes... and no... and yes... but it's not what I was referring to.

The plot thickens...

Okay, so here's my problem

I could probably have a chapter up within a couple of days now that I've got the photos organized....

but how soon do you want one?

Too fast and people get frustrated because they can't keep up, too slow and people drop out 'cause it's, well, too slow.


Thoughts?

Posting an update every 5 - 7 days should work great. You'll get done with the report eventually and still give us all a chance to truly enjoy your adventures. So, given that you posted a chapter on Friday, the next one should be Tuesday at the earliest. All that said, just do whatever works for you.

There's one in Rome too for anyone planning a trip.

Checking in! Glad you made it back and had a safe and fun trip.
I think you may be able to change Ruby's mind somewhat about WDW, in a word, SPA! get her gift cards for the spa while you and the kids hit the parks. Hey it is worth a try right?

Hey this looks like a good place to hang out until Nebo feels better

I haven't read this all since I'm late to the party, but we're trying out the bands and fastpass+ in a couple of weeks. I'm not planning to change anything .... I could stand in a 60 minute line by the time it would take me to figure out how to change it on my smart phone

Hi Betsey! Welcome aboard.

That's a really good idea.... and I'll pass it along....

But it's starting to sound like she wants to go after all!

The idea was that for Elle's graduation, I would take her and her friend.
Then Ruby says, "Well, I'd like to go too."



Apparently, Elle told her that while the three of us did rope drop and all the scurrying around that entails, she could sleep in and relax then meet us for lunch.

She liked the idea.


She also liked the FP+ idea (so no running of the bulls... her comment? "I love TSMM!") and I'm betting she'd love the spa idea too.


But where's the spa in WDW?

Hi Steph! Welcome! You haven't missed much yet, we haven't made it out of the house yet!

You'll have to tell us how the FP+ went. We don't have smart phones (heck... we don't have phones that work in the States!) so we wouldn't make changes either.

Plus, now that I think about it.... if you have to make ADRs well in advance for CRT or Le Cellier, you wouldn't change them, right?
So if you make a FP for TSMM, would you try and change it? Good luck!

There is a spa at the Grand Floridian and at Saratoga Springs. There is also an awesome spa at the Swolphin.

The sooner the better IMO. I learned from our TR that if you start dragging it out too long, you start to forget details. Best to post as quickly as possible while the memories are still recent. At your age, you can't afford to wait.

Besides people should be sitting by their computers just waiting for you to post a chapter. If they can't keep up, then they need to invest in a smartphone and download the Dis app. Plus this will help prepare them for FP+.

Well I thought it was a good suggestion anyways.
