Tammy,

Thank you so much for sharing your whole experience with us. I really felt like I was right along with your family. You're all going to be talking about this for a long time.

Just goes to show....dreams really do come true!

Great trip report! Just think, every time you go to WDW from now on, you will probably be treated as celebrities. I know we would ask for your autograph. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful trip.

I have been reading your trip report all along. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I must say I found myself in tears of joy for you and your family. Your story really did show all the joy. As I was reading it each time I had a mental picture of it. What a dream come true!!!

Holy Crap , you did it again, I just went through another box of kleenex reading these last couple of posts.
You see too, I must confess I am a cryer at Disney. It starts when the planes lands in Orlando, and although it does stop for periods, it picks up again on the way home.
2 years ago, I took my son who was 4 at the time to Disney. I had just lost my job, and my husband couldn't come with us, so very last minute I decided to use some of my severance package to pay for a trip.
The expression on my son's face when he saw his first "live character" was priceless, bringing tears to my eyes. I had been there as a child of his age, and have vivid memories of it, but to see it through his eyes was magical.
Your story has been a fantastic read, thank you for sharing it.

Your not pumpkins, but kids do say the darnest things. After a couple of weeks, I'll switch this over to the completed trip reports, so it will never get lost.

Fantasmic report! I'm glad you have such wonderful memories to last your lifetime, but I'm also glad that your children were old enough to have some special memories of this great trip. Thanks for bringing us along on your ride.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Dear MinnieRocks/Tammy,

Thank you so much for sharing your story! I cried big happy tears through every single post. Can't wait to share it with my DH and DD. Your surprises have inspired me to plan some really wild surpises for them on our next trip.

Now, I have to blow my nose and try to get to sleep and dream wonderful WDW dreams.

Happy day,
Anne

Never, ever, pumpkins. Just like Cinderella, it's the magic that was already inside you that made the trip so wonderful. Your marvelous Prince Charming DH, your Louie-loving DS and Belle, your DD and you -- magnificent, wonderful you -- truly a princess. Thank you so very much for sharing the magic with us. As you know, we all watched your videos on GMA with a touch of wonder and envy. But you have been kind and gracious enough to take us along on the magical moments and for that I, for one, will be eternally grateful. Thank you so much for allowing us to vicariously live this trip of a lifetime with you!!!!! May pixie-dust and Mickey Magic follow you all the days of your lives.

What a beautiful compliment...thank you so much!
You know, this has been so amazing for me. I have so enjoyed reading everyone's posts and really-they have touched my heart! I have increased my circle in a way that I never thought possible and it has been truly wonderful!
Thank you all for being such a source of encouragement for us. It was pure joy for me to share it with all of you!!!
