We just rented points and I agree it's the way to go. We got three nights at SSR for $300. What a beautiful resort, I think you'll really enjoy it.

We have also watched the parades near the same area. We found it to be a good spot. If you get a spot right in front of the eating area of the restaurant no one can get behind you and inadverently get in front of you!

Do I write the longest reply posts? Geesh! I enjoyed this one! Have a great day, Dawn!
I was just going to thank dawn for posting the clip of the parade so I could show DH. I was super bummed the spacemen WEREN'T wearing the masks... I don't like them now!!! I think they are creepier with the makeup!!!! I will have to see what DH thinks when he wakes up.

Thanks again for the Spectro. clips Dawn! I love the music. Only 10 more months for me.

Love the update, so glad you got to see Spectro, I agree it's the best. Loved the video of Erin and how exhausted you guys were! Also loved the video of Tink flying, having never seen Wishes (gasp- something I planon changing this year) that was incredible to see. Can't wait for more!

Glad you had a good time though & I look forward to reading more

It's Erin

So it is finally time for me to say HIIII!!! I just want to say that thanks to my friend Dawn I got to see the most magical place on Earth. I had the best time. The spectro video I was wiped. But all I could think was I want more more more. My body was not agreeing with my mind at this point. And I am planning a trip for Disney in 2008 but after talking to Dawn the other night I think that me, my mom, stepdad, and niece are going to Disney in December of 2008. My niece, KJ's birthday is in February she will be 10. So I am going to give her a birthday card and put something in there to let her know that we are going in December.

i think they're creepy either way, but nothing that i can't watch. i do love the way they move to the music when they blow the horns on the first float! oh, and about those 10 months.....they'll fly by! you'll be taking care of a little one!

mine is a very tentative trip! DH and i want our next two trips (after april) to be christmas and halloween. and it make sense to me to go for christmas in 2008 since that will be 7 months after our april trip.....that's a long enough break, right??? but we'll probably be there before you.....we're going either the first or second week of december (if we go!).
