I think you took the record for the longest TR!

I hope your cruise trippie is just as good as your precruise one! You are a great writer and have a wonderful time! Can't wait to hear all the details when you return!

Chapter Ten more Hunt Stuff

So the kids go tearing into my folks room and from the sound of it scare the bejezus of the fish! They come back with present in hand:



Okay now for dad to brag on his girls. I was very pleased how both girls opened all of these joint clues without fussing with each other. It was one of those moments when you think “Gee they are listening to us it is sinking in!” (hey a guy can dream can’t I?)

Point two, the kids have been very careful not to rip the clues. In fact each time they open the gift, “where is the clue, don’t tear the clue!”



The next gift is a CD “Beauty and the Beat” It is a compilation of different Disney Tunes performed by a steel drum band! Another great DIS tip! I got this over a year a ago on Amazon. It is a great little CD but one time through is about all I can take in one day! Sweet Child asked, “Beach Music? Disney? Is Disney World at the Beach?” She’s getting close but the dots aren’t connected yet!

The next clue reads:

On this trip you will see mice
For the next clue go to where we keep the ice!

Thanks! Its been a blast watching the magic unfold for the girls the last few weeks. We have a few more surpirises in store for them. This is one of those sweet moments that I am trying to drink up and savor because I know that they will be grown and gone too soon.

Now if you would excuse I have to go break them up from fighting! (Just kidding they aren't fighting right now)

That has been one of the nice side effects of doing the “pre-report”. It gives me something to focus on until the trip gets here. It’s a nice way to pass the time. Plus since it is only a 3 night, it makes it feel like the trip is a bit longer!

The inspiration for many of the clues and/or gifts originated here on the Dis. I have a good friend who has given me a hard time about hanging out here. She thinks I am going to be too informed about what is going on that I will miss the magic of the moment. I don’t think that will be the case. The time I have spent on these boards over the last few months have armed me with a wealth of knowledge hat I think will definitely enhance our family’s experience. Thanks for reading and your kind comments. There are only two clues left! And Thanks to the Dis community for all the fun you have helped me have planning the cruise and for the fun yet to come!

I bet you'd have a good chance of getting at least a mention in ashman's most excellent pre-trip report.


Hey, plan a Dis meet and maybe you'll even make the for real, honest to goodness, actually made it onto the Wonder TR!

Looking forward to reading all about it.
Have a great cruise!
Thanks for the shout out and support! By I fear it is a lost cause. I am either the only Dis'er on the cruise or I have scared them from identifying themselves!

This PTR (pre trip report) has really been lots of fun to read. I have to make sure that I put it to my favorites so I can keep coming back to be updated! I, for one, certainly can appreciate your sense of humor!!!!

I envy you! Although it seems like a life time away I'm sure. I have done 15 cruises (1 seven night Disney)and still get just as excited for each one as I did the first. Perhaps even more since now I know just how awesome they really are!

This has been a great read Ashman. And I agree with you. I have been on the DIS Board for more than 6 months in anticipation of my 4 day cruise (not only me, but 8 other members of my family) on Feb. 18th. I have learned so much, that my family has named me the official cruise director for any follow-on trips. If you have never been on a cruise, which many of us have not, I don't think you can learn enough about what goes on.

But, your pre-trip reports have been outstanding. You girls are adorable. I can't wait to read your post trip report. Carry on "my-man"!!!
