I love the castle pictures! I want to meet Lady Tremaine and the stepsisters so badly! I am going to try to book 1900 Park Fare for my birthday dinner.

I think renting a wheelchair was a wonderful idea! You should have made them push you at the end of the day! That is what I did at DL- we rented one for Sam ( who had broken his leg in March). He can walk fine now, but it would start to swell at the end of the day if he had been on it all day. So the boys would take turns riding in it- and I always got a turn!

I can't wait to hear about LTT! We have ADRs there in Nov.

I love your tour through the countries! I was laughing the whole way through!

I think they make stuff you can put on your feet to prevent blisters in the crocs. Sorry about Madison's feet but even more sorry for you having to listen to the whining!

Lady Tremaine! I had forgotten some of their names. I remembered Anastasia, but is the other one Griselda or something like that? And I don't know which one is which, but it didn't matter. They were fab!! The twins were a little flabbergasted, and I think Shay Lynne thought the step-mother was scary! What a great birthday dinner that would be for you! I hope you get to do it. I'm hearing them sing "Sing Sweet Nightinggale" as I think about them (they weren't singing in the parks, but I always laugh at them singing that song in the movie). Clay cracks me up every time he tells me what Lady Tremaine said to him. He says she said "Here, let me sign that for you...", but he says she said it in a really scary voice. I don't think he's going to forget her any time soon.

I would LOVE to have ridden, but not at the expense of my ears. I really done with the complaints by that point! Thank you for your sympathies. I wondered if anyone would look down on us for having a wheelchair since we suspected lots of people had them who didn't need them--Madison thought it was because they wanted to have handicapped access through the parks. But her blisters were bleeding and bandaids wouldn't stay on. I didn't know what else to do!!

Thank you! I showed my kids tons of pics from TRs before we went, too! It really got them excited.

Loving all the husband nicknames! And I'm glad to know I'm not married to the only tightwad in the universe!!

no, you aren't.. I have Penny Pinching Pat here. Love your report. Kids look awesome in their customs. So nice they had a great time. But then again, how can you not at the Happiest Place on Earth. So, have you heard... "When are we going back" yet?

More More More!!!

Come on...it's Saturday and we teachers only work 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, 9 months a year, right? What could you *possibly* have to keep you from satisfying my need to read your trip report??

Everyone looks SO GREAT in the pictures. You'd never know there was one bit of complaining going on. When you scrapbook them, just write about how perfect they all are and that's how you'll all remember it.

Can't wait to hear more.

I LOVE your magic kingdom pics! I am just green with envy that you saw the step sisters and Lady Tremaine! I guess I will just have to add that to my list for next time! I am having so much fun reading your trip report.I just can't get enough disney today, the travel channel has Disney stuff all day.I am taping it and still can't tear myself away!

Penny Pinching Pat...I like it! Yes! They are asking to go back. I'm already devising ways....

That's a good idea, and as someone said before, the bad memories of the trip do fade over time. I'm glad you can't see it all in the pics. We really and truly did have a great time, though. I am usually known for spilling my guts, so I just tend to include it all as I write about it. It won't be long for you now, will it? I know you're beside yourself with excitement! And I'm excited, too, because I know you love pics as much as I do. You'd better be ready to tell it all (and show it) when you get back--no matter when school starts!!! (Like I've done so well turning my TR out since I've been back....)

I find myself bummed about not getting to do several things, too--and they are mostly things I've seen that y'all got to do! I didn't really realize how much we missed until seeing some of your pics. I guess we can chalk it up to the perils of simultaneous TRs! But it has been so much fun to write our TRs together!! At least your DH is saying he wants to go back. I'm going to have to work on mine! Or work on him letting me go without him.

BTW, I've been reading Breaking Dawn all day (anybody addicted to the Twilight saga like me?), so I haven't paid attention to what's on TV today. Now I will be glued to the Travel Channel!! Shay Lynne switched channels right away once I told her what was on!! I'll try to put the book down and whip out another update as I watch....

Apparently you haven't read my trip report! Nah, he didn't complain TOO much on our last trip. Just a couple of times a day.

Poor Madison with her bleeding feet! I really feel for her! I couldn't wear my crocs for more than one day. After that I switched to my broken in tennis shoes. Tessa wore hers every day, but she had cute little socks with them.

Day 6, Part 5

Heading for LTT, Clay was excited to see Goofy again! There was all this food served homestyle--tons of meats, dressing, green beans, potatoes, mac & cheese...I don't remember what all else there was. I got aggravated at the kids for not eating more considering the expense. I guess it was the Mickey head ice cream. But they sure ate the dessert! It was yummy apple cobbler and ice cream. Here are some pics of our meal. It's hard to get good pics of the characters when you're up so close to them.

Here's Pluto...













As you can see, Clay was a little taken with Pluto's tongue. Then Chip and/or Dale came by...








The twins fighting over a pen (that belonged to Clay)...



Shay Lynne's the dominant twin, in case you haven't figured that out.

Then we saw Minnie...

Day 6, Part 6

And then our bud Goofy! We just love'im!!








Goofy is just one of our faves!!! Then we got the bill, and Lance wasn't too happy. I had prepaid for CRT, so he didn't know how much this character dining stuff costs. The waitress put the check down beside him and I just cringed. He could not believe it. And it bothered him even more that the kids had eaten very little. When we left, I told him that I wasn't sorry we ate there because it was Clay's wish and he wished to eat with Goofy! Besides, I've heard the LTT won't have the characters after next January, so I am glad we got to experience it. He said he was just shocked, that was all. Oh well, you only live once. And we did have expense money from MAW, after all.

OK, onto Frontierland.

We rode BTMR again...



...and everyone but Madison and I rode Splash Mountain. Not that I cared if I got wet this late in the day, but Madison wanted one of those temporary tattoos of a Mickey-head or something. Unfortunately we couldn't find one during the time it took them to do Splash. We weren't DARE going to go far as we did NOT want to risk losing each other again (although Lance had carried his phone with him every day since the mishap on our first MK night).

We moved to Adventureland next because we wanted to do pirates again. I took this pic of Johnny Depp. Shhhh, don't tell...



Ty and Clay each got guns (Ty's second of the trip) in the souvenier shop. Ty looks tough here, don't you think? He was really trying.



Then look who we ran into!!!









Clay had said he wanted to fight with Captain Hook, so I reminded him of that, but all he would do was smile at him and kind of look at him in awe. I asked him later why he didn't fight with him and he said it was because he didn't have a sword. Logical, I guess!

Next we headed to Tomorrowland because Ty had never gotten to do the Indy cars. We didn't think they looked all that exciting, but the kids wanted to drive. They gave Clay a driver's license!! Shay Lynne was jealous.






Fun times! A few of us went back to do the cars again, but Shay Lynne and I went to ride the teacups one last time...





Next up, Toontown again to visit the Judge's Tent!

Day 6, Part 7-8

Loving it! You have inspired me to take lots of pictures and post them all... Just asked DH how many pictures will fit on the card for the camera. He said, "I don't know. lots." I said, Like, a hundred lots, or a thousand lots? I think we'll ahve the laptop with us so we can dump them on there. As IF I could go for that long without internet access!!!

We really love LTT. I am glad the kids had a good time with the characters since it is quite pricey.
