Thanks for the warning!

My DD7 wants her face painted just like that. She made me scroll back up to look closer at that picture. I couldn't really focus due to the many castle pictures you posted so it took me a moment or two. She wants to know where she can get the face painting done.

Your parents look so majestic in front of the castle. Great pic.

I can't believe how fast time is flying. You'll be there so soon. How's the organizing of all the "thingies" you'll need on the trip going?

Okay... we'll quit hassling you about the water, then. But you know we're only doing it because we care. And yes, 24/7 with a hot and tired miniMontana should be great for your sister. Can't wait to read about that.

Pics were great!!!! Looking forward to the new ones too. So are we gonna get you into digital scrapbooking?

I worked today and I have to work again later in the week but I keep thinking I only have one more weekend before we go I'm hoping to start packing today or tomorrow, that will help me feel better. The face painting stations are in all the parks. I can't remeber the exact locations, maybe someone out there could help us? They have pictures of what they can do and I believe it was about $15 to do. Prices may have gone up. Bless your daughter for wanting to look closer. I have a picture of my two in that white outfit your dd wore after BBB. I'll have to post it for you.

I appreciated all the helpful hints you offered, thanks again. I would love to try digi scrapping. I need to pm you about that when I have time It's on the backburner for now.
I can't wait to write about the heat and how we all coped or not with it

14 days from now we'll be eating at Liberty Tree Tavern

I have to post these pictures Queenofallthings took on TT last year. I think they are great shots, I'm always holding on for dear life and surely I would lose my camera if I tried the same thing









Jasmine at Liberty Tree Tavern


We love the food here.


When I was here when I was expecting dd3 and I was so nauseated I loved the mashed potatoes so much. They helped a lot

OK so remember when I said I wasn't going to be out buying all that last minute stuff, I was going to be super organized Yeah right. I went out today to buy gum for everyone and candy for the plane. I also picked up some tissue travel packs and batteries for a couple of light up toys we will bring with us. I found small ones at the Disney Store a couple of years ago and they are nice and small but give off alot of colored light. I had to put new batteries in the Cars phone to bring on the plane as well as the tamogotchi. I needed batteries for my solitaire game. I think I have a couple more CD's to put on my Ipod touch and I should have a good selection of Disney tunes to listen to enroute. I think this year (because I always bring too much) the kids will only bring a couple of things to play with on the plane. Dd8 has a Nintendo DS and her Ipod shuffle, and a journal to keep track of her trip. Dd3 has her cd player, leapster and I'm sure the inflight entertainment will keep her busy. She really likes Treehouse TV. They will sleep a bit as well since we'll be up at about 3 am. I found last time dd3 kept dropping her crayons/markers and we lost a few. I think we'll pass on coloring this time. I really have to decide on what snacks to bring. That's another area I bring too much. We only have an hour in Toronto to get through customs and change planes. There isn't enough time to buy a snack there. We usually have to buy something on the plane.
I took out my mini pharmacy, never know when a cold or stomach flu might hit. It remeinds of a story of when we were on our last cruise when I was expecting dd8. We had great table mates on that cruise and we really had a great time every night at dinner. The fellow who was sitting beside me had red hair and had spent way too much time out in the sun that day and he was feeling really nauseated. I asked him if he had any Gravol (Dramamine in the U.S.). He was in construction for work and he said to me gravel?, why would I want to eat gravel? We laughed so hard at that.

I also started my gifts from Disney list. Does anyone else find when they get to the stores there they forget who they said they'd bring a present back for? Tell me it's not just my aging brain I printed out the postcard requests for the pay-it-forward thread. I love doing those. The girls got theirs yesterday.

Well that's the update for now, next post will be our 3 rd day

Then we'll be at Boma for dinner and get to enjoy Animal Kingdom Lodge.
We have to stay here one year. Enjoy. dd8 shows you a hidden Mickey, her face painting from DD and there are pictures from breakfast and dinner. This is the first year we will be going there for dinner.

14 days from now we'll be at HS

This will be our 4th day and we'll be spending it at Hollywood Studios. We're having dinner at 50's Prime Time Cafe. Can you believe I don't have one picture of 50's? I guess I'll be taking lots this time.

I agree with you. My sister always tapes Oprah and watches the shows on the weekend, she's her idol. Checked in on your pre trippie, you must be getting excited too. I work'd today and now knowing I don't have to work again until after we're back, I couldn't be more excited Will post more pics tonight, have to go bath the kiddies

Day 5 will be at Animal Kingdom and Coral Reef for dinner

So in 14 days we'll be Animal Kingdom and will go to Coral Reef for dinner. I know I have pictures of Coral Reef but they must be not digital. Anyway, we can't wait to ride EE and my family and I have never been on Kali River Rapids. DD8 wants to ride Dinosaur. I haven't been on the Safari in a few years either. Lots to do although this is our least favorite park but we do have things we like there. Here are some pics.
Did I mention how excited I am

Alot of these were taken in November of various years, hence the Christmas apparel and trees.





















I love how dd3 is hidden by Goofy's beard.


2006 my how she's grown.( see next picture)


2004 how cute is she?

6th day we'll be at MK again and the Tutto Italia for dinner

So we'll be back at Magic Kingdom. I believe we spend the most days at this park. I think as the kids get older we'll spend less time here but for little ones it's the best. Queenofallthings and Jasmine have been to Tutto Italia before but we haven't so we're really looking forward to dinner there.

Minnie's house


Abbey Mallard She's so cute with her teeth!



Outside the park


Spectromagic, hope we get to see it before it stops. We absolutely will be making that a priority.


Ugh that great humidity!


Hopefully we'll have some days like this. They were the only ones on the Magic Carpet of Aladdin!


Can't wait to do Splash with dd3. We'll see what she thinks when it's done.

Spectro won't be on while we are there. I was looking forward to seeing it but trying to figure out how to work a "late night" in. I guess we will just have to live it through your account of it.
