I love the fact you all wore matching shirts...for our trip in Nov. I have one day of that...where did you get them?

I am excited because we are staying at BCV in Nov. and heard great things about it. And love the fact so close to Epcot our favorite park.

Loved all the pics with fog or no fog....you have a beautiful family.

Thank you so much. We love BC and hopefully our next stay will BCV look forward to hearing how you like it! Definately stroll over to the BC lobby and let your precious daughter meet Art ... she will never forget him he is a wonderful man.

Well I bought the Polos from Disney shopping. They still have most of them I think. I know the orange ones were on clearance when I did buy them so they may not still be there. The mickey head shirts came from there as well I think they have 5 colors and I bought 2 of them ... I bought them when they ran them on sale for 5 to 7 a piece.

The rest of the shirts I made. I bought a bulk of dark transfers for all the iron on ones that I printed out. Then I made applique shirts, and some with spray fabric paint as well. All my tshirts came from Walmart. If you need any help let me know I still have the majority of the patterns from all of the ones I did and I have the images saved as well.

How do you print them out and iron them on? Never did it before. And I have no artistic talent.

We are going for our 11th wedding anniversary...this is our 4th year in a row. We will go to California Grill for dinner and take Aviva to Sandcastle Club...we did it 3 years ago at Simba's Clubhouse and she loved it.

They have paper you can buy at Walmart that is for iron ons. The one I bought from there is Avery for Dark transfers ... don't by the light even if you are putting it on light shirts it is just crap. Check out the Creative DISigns board here and they have tons of pictures that people personalize that you save to your computer and print it out on that paper. Just follow the instructions on the paper you get and you will be fine. On the first page I posted the links to all our shirts too and if you see anything there you like lmk and I can personalize it for you.

No, you can never post too much pictures. They help tell your story.

I am SOOOOO excited that you converted your hubby! Mine is STILL complaining about going this year! I guess it just takes time right? Which DVC did you go visit?

Yes well in our case it just took some time. Last year this time he would have barely talked about going to Disney much less anything else.
We went to SS. We both liked the resort itself. DH did not like how far it is away from everything and honestly I have to agree. With DS's mobility issues our least favorite mode of transport at Disney is the bus. At least at the Epcot or Monorail resorts there are options other than that for some of the parks.

I have photo-pass pictures from today but none with our camera. So I will ad them later this week when the CD gets here.

We get back to the hotel and the kids had both eaten some breakfast (cereal bars lol) and are dressed and ready to go. So we head out to MGM! I think we could have done with a day off but no one wanted to hang back at the hotel so we headed out. DH wanted to walk and the kids and I did not share in the excitement about walking so we hit the boats. He claims he strolled ... I know he stopped and talked with someone who was fishing in Crystal lake. He did get to MGM a few minutes before we did so unfortunately that proved his point of it was quicker to walk lol.

First course of action is for the kids to spread a little magic. We had been given 4 fast pass cards by the CM at the DVC presentation. We would not use them so the kids wanted to find a family to give them too. They started looking as soon as we got into the park. The kids wanted to give them to someone who would according to them use them correctly (ToT and RnRC ). So finding someone that could fit that description was actually pretty difficult. They would find someone and then watch them for a few minutes to make sure of their party size. Well we rounded the corner and headed to RnRC. I told them if nothing else they could hit the FP line at RnRC and give them to someone there. As soon as I said it DD spotted a family. It was a Mom and Dad and two little girls that looked to be the same ages as my kids. They looked very confused trying to find their way ... I am thinking first trip to MGM. DD got bashful though and I had to walk with her to give them away. I explained that they each had 3 rides on them and what they were. They sounded like they were from England and they were very appreciative but I think still confused. I left them and ended up walking back because I had forgotten to tell them not to put them near their cellphones and they asked me a few questions about the cards then. We headed back out to RnRC.

Funny thing when we got there the little girls that the kids gave the cards to ended up in line in front of us! The youngest got scared right as you walk into the cage part of the cue and DD helped talk her down lol. I decided to ride with the kids this time since we had hit EE already and that was the agreement. Because of us having to enter into a different area to get Alex into a car we did not ride behind the girls but DH said he saw them get off and they were gushing about how much fun they had! One of our favorite CM's this trip was at RnRC and James was telling her about the girls and she told me when we got off RnRC I knew I liked you guys for a reason lol.

James wanted to watch LMA so we hurried out to catch the first show. I think at this point I realized how tired everyone was because DH was the only one that really enjoyed it. Course he loves all things cars and all things that blow up so ... It was also getting a LOT warmer than it had been! Plus everyone was hungry so we decided to grab lunch. DH waited while the kids and stopped to Toy Story and got pizza then we went to Back-Lot Express and he got a burger. While eating we decide on our afternoon and how it is going to happen. Next installment will be MGM in the afternoon ... guess who stays and guess who goes!

Great report! I do apologize for my late entry into your report, but I am loving it! I just sat here and read the whole thing at work this morning- slow morning, boss is out, might as well do a little Dis-ing. Great job with the pics- you can never have too many. Oh, and AWESOME job convincing your hubbie to join DVC!! My DBF is totally hooked on Disney since I introduced it to him 4 years ago, and he keeps saying "one day we will have DVC." I can't wait to hear how your TR ends, although I am sad to see it come to a close

Better late than never.

Yes we are close to the end of our time. Sad because that will mean that my trip is "officially" over.

I see you guys are heading to Poly soon! That is one place we really want to go ... can't wait to hear about it!

How can you invest so much money on a vacation and be so clueless?
If we keep going to Disney we will be like Peter Pan and never grow up!
