Holy motherlode of updates. Way to kick it off!

42 points for one night, OUCH, I feel your pain!

Love that you ditched the gang and hightailed it straight to MK, but yeah the next day with teens, and a move 11am sounds about right. I love the updated bakery!!! You got some gorgeous pics of the castle my friend. I've never tried those nuggets either, someday. Maybe. Still can't believe we JUST missed each other!!

So, heck yeah, cheaper flight should always translate into an extra night at Disney. Yay for a 1 BR standard view! I just love the Boardwalk Christmas decorations.

But originally we were flying in later- we were able to switch it earlier because they changed the time of the flight by more than 1/2 an hour. I was doin a VERY happy dance that day!

So glad that the MK wasn't outrageously crowded. Looks like a fabulous evening and what a perfect start, except for the missing piece of luggage. Way to take advantage of that AP!

I had seen on Touring Plans that is was not going to be insanely busy- but still, you never know. What a nice surprise!

I love your T-shrit! Perfect!

Thanks! I have had it for YEARS waiting to wear to WDW at just the right time! I made Lonnie buy it for me when she was down there for Christmas one year-

Great pictures of the castle. Boy do I miss Christmas at Disney. I need a fix.

Everyone does!

Very excited about October's cruise.

YEA!!!

Oh, and BTW - I just started a new TR too, so join in when you can!
Thanks! I did- just ran out of time to comment- I will be back to do that later today-

Hi Princess! I am trying to get through this WDW as fast as I can, lol! The Fantasy is really, really awesome- all four of us loved it.You will too!!! A week long cruise just offers so many more wonderful things to do- seriously, even in port, we barely wanted to get off.

That doesn't sound weird- that sounds AMAZING!!! I love love love that I was able to spread my DCL addiction to YOU!! Really! That first TR from our first cruise on DCL and as a family- that is probably my favorite cruise of all. This Fantasy cruise over NYE was incredible- absolutely perfect in soooo many ways, but that first time? That was where the addiction monkey was born- just something so special about your first Disney cruise....right?

Thanks so much for telling me, and thanks for remembering my TR from 2008!!!! xo

Thanks! I took those pictures with my P&S water camera- no idea how they came out so well!

And try the nuggets. They are crunchy and sweet and savory and salty and yum.....

I love the Christmas decorations..Disney really goes all out! 42 points for one night? That's almost half my entire contract! No wonder I only go on off seasons!

Ellen! I'm in! God, I miss WDW at Christmastime. Before the kids were too old to be pulled out of school for a week, we used to go the first week of December every year. Perfect time, because it's all decorated for Christmas, it's not crowded, it's not hot, and Mike's birthday is that week. Now, we are slaves to the school calendar. Sniff. Dying to hear what NYE on DCL is like.

And Sean got a new Dr. Seuss book I see? Sweet.

I'm in! You're getting me in the cruise mood! I'm ALMOST to the single digit dance for ours! Can't wait to get out of the snow. This winter's been so rough! As it stands, DS will have to make up one week in June. They've missed 10 days since January 1.

Your pics are great as always! It looks as if you had a great Xmas, and got lots done your first night in the park!

Great report...as usual!

Thank you for sharing.....dreaming of a week long Fantasy cruise.

I will have to settle for a 3 day Dream with 4 nights at Vero Beach this summer.

Can not wait to read the rest.....

Another snowy night in Jersey.....are you as sick as I am in NJ!
