Thumbs up

I agree with Steffy, word for word! My DD 6 wanted me to use these smilies.

It is so cool to read your TR in your words, not from the news, keep it coming.

You know thinking of going back to the resort for the night, makes me remember finding a new "something" in our room when we return.
When we arrived earlier in the day, one of the surprises was a few welcome gifts! I remember the looks on the kids AND DH's face when they saw the wonderful things that had been given to us. There were beach towels for the kids along with a WD lunchbox full of goodies! There was a WD bag for both my husband and I, along with a photo album and Mickey ears for us all-complete with our names on the back of them!

But as my husband walked to the table, there were two (stemware) glasses, a bottle of Evian, and a gold-wrapped box that had the GF Spa embossed on the top...all put together with gold string.
When we opened the box, inside was a box that was made from dark chocolate that had chocolates inside! It doesn't get any better than chocolates inside chocolate!!!
It was just a wonderful touch of class!

Well, we all just crashed...DS was thrilled to be going to MGM in the morning...It's his favorite park!!!

Can't wait to hear more

Some questions, what was your room like at the GF? did you visit the concierge lounge?

Was disney driving you around in the towncars I see them use for VIP's?

Great report so far! What room were you in at the GF - was it a regular room in the main building, or did they give you a suite? Also, did your VIP guide have a pre-set itinerary for you, or did you tell him where you wanted to go and what you wanted to eat? What was your favorite restaurant during your magical trip?

I am loving reading your trip of a lifetime report and seeing some of your pictures! You are doing an awesome job and I know we all can't wait for more!

Did they give each one of you spending money, to be able to buy whatever you wanted?

This is definitely the most exciting TR ever!!
When you walked into the MK for your "day"
did you know you were going to be surrounded by
the characters and cm's? Was everything a complete
surprise or did you know in advance? Thanks so
much for sharing this wonderful experience! I am
glued to this report!!

Thank you so much for sharing your trip report. Just like everyone else, every time I watch the video (many times already today) I start to cry. I am soooo happy for you and your family.
