I hope your ankle feels better soon. And I know that one day our trips will overlap. If not, I am coming to Disneyland just to meet you,
Awwww Alysa, you are so sweet!! I'm so glad you are here. Your trip is coming up so quickly.

One day.... I'm sure we can make it happen! I would be honored to meet up with you one day.

BTW, count me among the growing pink bag fan club.
Hi Carol! You bet!! I'm so glad you are here. I definitely wanted to let you know since you've followed for some time.

Although the pink bag wasn't practical for being a park bag it sure was pretty!!

Hi Kimmy!! I'm glad to see you joining!

Oh my gosh, I'm like a crazy person with 4 resorts in one trip. I'm excited to share.

Hope your ankle is healing quickly!

Also, I keep forgetting to tell you that my thoughts are with your youngest son. I have much admiration for our military.
Annie, thank you! So funny that you mentioned the dress I actually got a compliment on it from a man in the security line. Odd but what the heck maybe he liked the sequins. (The dress is actually a fashion repeat from our WDW trip last August as well as our first girl WDW trip.)

I love to hear support for our troops even if they are not my family but to have anyone specifically say that warms my heart. THANK YOU!

Can I claim to be the first Brit at least
Hi Linda! Most certainly you can claim the time difference! Isn't it like -18 hours? As far as I can tell you are the first popcorn toting Brit to join! I'm glad you are here! Thanks for joining in.

Viva Las Disney... I can help but sing your user name in an Elvis fashion! Do you get that often? Whoa, it's late and my sense of hilarity is off. But THANK YOU for joining. And thanks for reading the prior TR with that little 'ole room!

I'm here, I am HERE!!! THANK YOU for the heads up, I would have never known, I am SOOOO far behind!

Just finsihed reading intros (great job, so excited to hear more) and you and Emmy look just as beautiful as always! Prayers and thanks to your son who is serving our country and for all of your wonderful children, they are lucky to have such an amazing Mom Brenda!

I am so excited for this report! I would LOVE to stay at MK for the ease of transportation with a W/C...which leads me to say, you COULD do a W/C trip and see how the other half lives at Disney...just saying! And what happened to your ankle, I read the PTR when you wrote about it last week, but never did see exactly what happened or the details of how long you will be out of commission I am SO SORRY! But you COULD do Disney (I am such an enabler)!

4th page already?!?! MY TR moves 4 pages every 6 months . Thanks for the "smoke signal" I would have seen it from your other TR when I signed on tomorrow but a heads up is nice! Too bad I was sleeping or I would have been here sooner! I say a F&W trip is doable lol! Just make it sometime Oct 17-28 okay?

Hi Distripplanner! I'm so glad that you are here and joining! You may be able to relate to one of my next posts about trip planning and my spreadsheets! I hope this is a worthwhile read while you await your next trip.

Hope I'm replying correctly! Lol spreadsheets are my friend and for me half (well maybe not half) of the joy of going to WDW is all the planning and details leading up to actually going.

Worthwhile? Are you kidding? I gobble up your TR like they were special pancakes from Kona (which I've yet to have)! You have a wonderful ability to write in a way that makes me feel like I'm right there w/ you guys! Thanks for sharing!!

Hope your ankle is better soon and ready to take on the world soon!

I'm in, Brenda.

My youngest son is also my Disney partner in crime. The two of us have been on many trips without DH or my oldest DS. It's our special time together and neither one of us grow tired of it.

We are also resort hoppers. My DS loves AKL and we both love YC. Recently we've been staying at CR during our MK days and it makes it so convenient, then we just move over to the next resort for that area.

You have another fan here of the pink bag! Can't wait to hear about the trip.

I'm still confused about the Mickey waffles from your Feb/Mar trip. Your report is the only one I've ever seen from Akershaus that shows having them. I hope it's that way when we go next summer.

Just came across your TR and joining in! I can't wait to read about your trip!! Your title has definitely intrigued me and I enjoyed the intro!

I think it's fantastic you and your daughter are getting to spend this time together..and in Disney!! My mom is the one that brought Disney into my life at a very young age (my first trip was at 2.5) and it's something we still share today (along with my younger sister)!

We are "passing the love-of-Disney torch," so to speak, in just nine days when we take my daughter for her first trip (she'll be 14 months)! My DH and Dad will be there, too, but while they do like Disney, they are not as obsessed as we are!

Anyway, looking forward to reading along!! :-)

So excited for another TR!!! I loved following your live meals over on that board and can't wait to hear about all the details between the meals

My mom and I share a special Disney bond like you and Em... We haven't done a girls only trip, but I think we need too!
