Live from BC - Meeting All Height Reqts.

Sleepless night ahead of me ... I am going to WDW tomorrow

I still feel rather guilty about not bringing DD-4 and DS-8months but they were just there last September. We did not mention to DD where we are going as I don't think she would understand a Mommy and Daddy getaway ... especially to WDW. However we are planning a definite trip in December and a probable trip in May ... so - I do not feel too bad . My parents were gracious enough to come up and handle all children duties.

So the cast:

Me: DH 34 Disney Nut - ever since I went to WDW my first time, DW has no problem stating "you have a Disney problem ... I am serious".

Wife: DW 35 Loves Disney, has been enough times she has lost count. But does she have a 'Disney problem' - not really.

Friend: DFH 37 : Disney Nut - misses WDW as soon as he is in MCO. Favorite attraction, Philharmagic. Definitely has a 'Disney Problem' - goes to WDW several times a year - often taking the RV down.

Friend and Wife of DFH: DFW 35 Loves Disney - but much like my wife, is interested in spending some time with friends and adults only.

So the game plan is essentially to have the limo pick us up tomorrow take us to the airport and we will arrive at MCO around 10:30 AM. We have a limo service to take us to BC. First time both parties have stayed at this resort.

We have plans for the Segway tour, Hoo Dee Doo, Brown Derby Fant. Package - and lots and lots of eating - riding rides. Oh Yeah! I should have my first Dis Meet - one of the Dis'ers (I will not say who until I speak to her regarding me posting her handle) has me, DW (I hope - may chicken out), and DFH (DFW has chickened out) attending Expedition Everest with her on Friday!!!!!! How awesome are the people on Disboards!

So last September I started a Live from GF thread whereby I could post from my phone in the parks. I am going to do the same - the perspective will be from an adults only trip. I encourage people to post back and make recommendations as our schedule is not tight ... we are very free to do whatever. I may just aimlessly wander the parks looking for anything and everything.

I have my lanyard ready .. my lime green mickey ready to go on an article of clothing ... and a want for the Kitchen Sink!

Here on out - I will post from my phone - so the messages will be short and some typos here and there - but feel free to join.

sitting here on the plane waiting for everyone to grab their seat .... hurry!

my impression is that there are hardly any kids on the flight ... I guess it is a sign of time of year ... take care

Keep Posting!!

I'll be leaving for AKL Friday for 3 nights. Can't wait. I have an AP but my DD 22 doesn't....She's in shcool and cant get away for more than the weekend. Does that mean she won't be able to ride Everest with me??

I hope you have a safe flight -- and let us know how the crowds and weather are!

Gotta be the Cobb Salad

Brown Derby invented it. If you are hungrier than that, get one to share with whatever else you order.

By the way, how is the weather?

I was wearing a college sweatshirt and a girl tells me I just graduated from this school ... dw's school ... dw starts talking to her and she is eeyore and prince john ... she was really nice ... and when we told her our daughter's favorite is eeyore ... she started signing and writing a letter for her in eeyore style ... dd thinks we are traveling for work ...
