Now it's called something boring like "Mango Smoothie with a Splash of Cranberry," but a few years ago it was called the niagra refresher, and so it will always be for me! It is really refreshing, and it comes out in the prettiest glass!

And hooray for your passports!

I've never seen the original Tiki Room show, so I can't make any comparisons. I will tell you that my DS loves the current show and howls with laughter when Iago makes his appearance!

Word of warning: There is a very loud, potentially scary part that involves the angry Tiki gods...thunder, lightning, etc. If either of the kids is skittish about loud noises or storms, then consider skipping it.

I can't say that I blame you. I really can't bear to see a change for the worse in my beloved Tiki Room show. There are just some things at Disney that they should go with the old motto "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." For me it's the Tiki Room and Mr. Toad's Wild Adventure. Wow How I miss that!

Keep it coming..Your kiddos are adorable!
Thank you Miss Michelle! I would say get it before you need it. I have seen tons of people complaining at the PO that they haven't recieved thiers and they paid for rush delivery for a fast approaching trip.

Oh yes! A drink after my own heart! I simply adore Mango anything! I wonder if its possible for me to get a "to go" Niagra Refresher since I don't have any ressies for Le Cellier. That place is on our to do list for next visit. Unless....maybe I can convince Prince Charming that we can do it on this trip....

Time for some sweet talking.....

Thanks for the warning Kathy! Stitch is definitely afraid of loud noises and is not at all a fan of thunder and lightning. In fact, he is extremely afraid of them. So I guess I will be passing on the Tiki Room this visit.

You're welcome! In fact, I remember a couple of families needing to leave when their kids started crying. Funny how you always hear warnings about Snow White's Scary Adventures and It's Tough to be a Bug, but no one ever mentions the Tiki Room as having "scare potential".

Glad you got your Passports. I got mine a couple of years back when they first said everyone had to have them. My then-boyfriend is from the Cayman Islands and we had planned to go. We ended up not going and they ended up changing the year that the Passport restrictions went into effect, so I was kinda mad I went ahead and got it. But now that I am hearing how long it is taking, I am glad I went ahead and did it! So if any cool trip out of the country pops up, I can go, no problem!

Hi there! Glad to have found your trip report! I am loving it so far!

I am currently waiting for 1 passport right now too. I have 3 of ours but my youngest's had expired because she was under 3 when her original one was issued so it was only good for 2 years instead of 5! Yikes! It should be here in the next week or two so we should be fine but still.....I'll feel better when I have it in my hot little hands! I'd hate to have to leave her at home! Hahahhaha!! I wouldn't....well.....no, I wouldn't!

As for your questions....I'm trying to rememeber them....

1. I think it was arrival day activities. Well, seeing as we are coming in internationaly we never seem to get in before 10pm so we shower and sleep! How's that for boring!

2. How did I learn about the Disboards? From a scrapbooking site! 2peas to be exact! Yes, I share not only your obsession for Disney but also the one for scrapbooking and paper crafting!

3. First Disney experience. I think I have these out of order - sorry. Anyways, my first time at Disney was in California and I was about 5 or 6 at the time. We were robbed. Seriously. Took everything so the vacation came to a complete and total end very abruptly. Wasn't a great experience.

4. Fav snack - gotta go with a Dole Whip! I love me some frozen pineapple yumminess!

I feel like I missed a question. Sorry!

Keep the pre-trippie coming!

One thing for sure you will be ready for a spur of the moment Disney Cruise!

Welcome Sarah!

A fellow Disneyholic-Scrapaholic! WOOHOO!!!!

We are currently waiting for Prince Charming's passport renewal. He didn't send his in at the same time as ours since he felt that ours have to go through all the scrutiny because we are first time applicants and he feels his will be quicker since it is just a renewal. He's not worried....but I can't help biting my nails!

I'll have to go over to your pretrippie and see what happened during your California trip. I so want to go to Disneyland (one of these years) but everyone tells me it doesn't compare to Disney World.

THanks for stopping by!

Wow that is alot of pics. I will have to count how many pics I have in our last album. I wouldn't be surprised if it was just as many! Disney scrapbooks are so much fun to create since there is an abundance of items out there. Couple that with all the swaps that I host and join, they turn out amazing!

I think this time I am going to make 2. One for the Disney resort portion and one for the cruise portion. I have already purchased 2 memory cards for my digicam so that I don't freak out when I am reaching my capacity! LOL

WOOHOO! Do You Know What Today Is?????


Today is our 100 day mark! Today is our last day of triple digit numbers. As of tomorrow, we are well under way in the world of the double digits! Yeah Baby!!!

Princess ArieL woke up this morning and made a beeline down the stairs in order to be the first to turn the ticker. Her eyes were beaming! Then she turned to me and said "Mom, this Countdown Timer is the best!"

I have a confession to make.....

After hearing rave reviews on other trip reports, and comtemplating if I should do it....I finally broke down. I batted my eyelashes at Prince Charming and asked him to do what I thought I would never do....

I had him order this:
I am now the proud owner of the Unoffical Guide to Walt Disney World and the Disney Passporter. It arrived on Friday and I have been feverishly reading them.

One thing I must say: Where have I been?!?! I can't believe I have never perused one of these books. I absolutely LOVE them! And to prove how Princess ArieL is a mini me, she has been reading it too! Like mother, like daughter!

There was one thing I read that crushed my heart though. The Year of a Million Dreams will be over effective September 30th, 2007. Be still my heart! I was so looking forward to the glimmer of possibility that we would be chosen for Dream Fast Passes. Prince Charming tried to comfort me by saying, with our luck we wouldn't have gotten picked anyway. Gee, I feel much better.....

I have to also add that I added another ADR. We are having lunch at Le Cellier on November 1st. We couldn't get dinner since this is restaurant is so hot! But no matter, what I wanted to order at dinner is still served at lunch. And I can also get the awesome smoothie AGPrincess described earlier (Thanks Emma!)

Since today the day is crummy out with forecast of there not being a chance of it clearing up, I am going to get us all together so we can go see Ratiotoille (I know I just totally mis-spelled that, but you know what I mean!)

Hello!

We are arriving one day after you - so we are reaching the double digit dance too!

I thought I read that YOMD was extended through Dec 31, 2007. Does anyone know????

I love my UG and Passporter books too! I went and got them both when we decided to book our trip. Happy Reading!

I am having a hard enough time knowing that my landmark Matterhorn won't be there and that my beloved IASW isn't as cool. To muck up my head with the "new" Tiki Room would leave me with no other alternative but therapy.

Well, some people look at the glass as half-empty while others look at the glass as half-full.....

Your DH just picked it up and dumped in over your head!!

If it makes you feel any better, we were there last November and although we saw lots of Dreams, we never had any bestowed upon us. It didn't bother me (much), because just being at Disney again was a dream come true!

Whoo-hoo on reaching double digits tomorrow!!
