Nicolemarie, Nicolemarie, Nicolemarie.

That was awesome.

I loved the ending and am so glad you lurked on the tech boards and figured out how to post your pics and video. They were awesome. I had goose bumps and tears in my eyes as I watched Illuminations. For just a few minutes this Saturday, I was not sitting in front of my computer. I was at Epicot. I was watching my absolute favorite fireworks show ever. The only thing missing was a funnel cake.

You ROCK, Nicolemarie. Even if you didn't graduate in 89.

nicolemarie, I loved it! I have little tears from the Spectromagic song. We have the cd and it never ever gets old. It sort of summarizes the Disney experience, doesn't it?

Love your pictures -- especially the ones of the kids on the coasters. Too precious!

Taking a cue from one of the best...

Don't you just love LaLa? She is always "conversing" with her trip report posters. Showing the love. Giving them props. Whatever you want to call it, she is thankful they read and enjoy. Me too. So I'm taking some manners lessons from her.

GA Cat - Thanks for all your kind words. We really should schedule a get-together. Maybe ya'll can come swim sometime. I'll pull out the cool slide show DVD I made of our trip(with Spectro music as the background track). You bring some handmade Princess costumes. Good times.

ZZUB - Glad I "totally got you" with the ready to go home bit! It really pained me to even write such heresy on my report. I had to end the paragraph quickly. Like I told LaLa, I think our families have some parallels and would enjoy each other's company. Your humor is much like my husband's. And so is your constant internal conflict with parting with your money.

LaLa - I've already said my stuff on your TR - but the Ladies DO love Cool James, don't they!

Kim - You are SO right about the Spectro music!! As I said to GA, I used that music as the background track to my slide show DVD of our vacation. It really does sum up the "Disney feeling."

Jen - Thanks for your posts - by the way, the lady that looks so miserable in the OJ pic is actually working at the Florida Welcome Center, not Disney. Her expression is quite funny! Maybe she's Susie Helpershoes sister?

Beana, Kasey, Cynderella, Alite - Thanks for your kind words.

And Vickie - I might just post some more pics! I have plenty, you know!

Thanks all!!

The thought that there could be more than ten Texans living in the vicinity of my local Home Depot who would be interested in painting anything Alien Green, causing a severe shortage in that color paint chip, positively frightens me...

Great Report, I loved It!

I really appreciate you sharing your trip with us. I'm sure we all enjoyed it "almost" as much as you did.

The pictures were great also.

Wow. I'm 600 miles from Disney yet feel like I just went on a ride! Thanks so much nicolemarie! I love your writing style, and your smarty "pants" sense of humor-- sooo like my own! And I can totally envision my DH at breakfast w/ a stack of receipts, and perhaps even a calculator. Talk about a buzzkill!! Can't wait for the next "Smith" family WDW vacation & TR!

We’ve connected as a family in a way that the busyness of life outside the World does not allow.
NM~ that is the greatest fastpass of all. Even bettter than that fantastical ride in Norway. You know. The one that goes backwards? With the scary drop?

“Por favor, mantanganse alejadro de las puertas.”

I don't know how to copy quotes sorry.

My wife and and I love that saying too! It always makes us laugh for some crazy reason. We walk around saying it all the time!

(Just to note this not my site or anything like that-just a cool place to get cool shirts.) The best thing though is I found a site that sells t-shirts with that saying on the back. I wear it all the time. They also have some other neat ones like " We wants the redhead."

Go to www.wdwvirtualvisit.com and click on The Emporium. That will take you to an EBAY store with some great Disney t-shirts. I guess I should also mention that the site allows you to feel like you are walking around Disney

That was a great trip report! It always good to know that other people "get it" too. Truly wonderful report.
To infinity and beyond!
