It makes me feel better to know that I am not the only one out there who can't keep themselves from saying extremely stupid things!
I am going to start carrying a shovel with me to dig a hole so I can hide in

I just found out that we are doing your family for the big give and I am soooo excited to get started!

What is really going to be wonderful is when we start to see pictures of these kiddos in their outfits at Disneyworld! It makes me tear up even thinking about it.

There isn't much time, so I better get workin!

Amy Rocks!

We are not laughing AT you Amy, just thinking about how we wanted and tried to do EVERYTHING and, or course, were not able. The great thing is that it is so MAGICAL that what you miss does not matter in the least (unless you miss your flight home or something.... but even that would not matter in the big picture).

Amy, we all think you are wonderful!

Thanks for being excited with us!! I've had so much fun watching Heather's kids get things...I just can't believe they chose to do this for us, too. WOW is all I can say.

Amy: All I can say is WOW!!! What wonderful news and how exciting that the DISBoutiquers are going to shower you - and others - with their pixie dust. I can't wait to hear - and see - more!

And another WOW...I just realized that you leave for your trip in less than 3 weeks! I learned about your trip about the same time as a few others, and with our trip so far away - not until November 1st! - I just lost track of how fast the time was flying until YOUR trip! You must be SO excited!!!

I laughed when I saw your list. I remember on our family's first WDW trip (this is going to be the 2nd), I stayed up late, studying the guidebook and my lists as if I was cramming for finals! I liked the concept of Top 3, so I came up with ours:

MK: #1 has got to by Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, our wish kid Mark's ABSOLUTE favourite. We rode it 10 times one day on our first trip! After 4 times virtually in a row, I had to take a break! Also, Porates of the Caribbean (including the Pirate Tutorial), and Space Mountain (although this was also the scariest for my hubby because the cars are single seats, i.e. you sit 1 behind the other and Peter was holding Mark for dear life! He loved it though!)

Epcot: Test Track, Mission:Space (Green!), Soarin'. Of course, a special mention goes out to World Showcase and the Canada Pavilion, which we skipped last time but will show our patriotism and visit this time! Special mention also to Yu-Gi-Oh card shopping in Japan!

HS: Star Tours and meeting Darth Vadar. Will add Jedi Training Academy now that it is permanently there. Rock 'n Roller COaster, Lights Camera Action

AK: Expedition Everest, Safari, Primeval Whirl

And: Downtown Disney: Cirque de Soleil (fantastic - we're proud it started in Canada!), the Lego store, Pick a Pearl

Best 3 Dining Experiences: California Grill and watching Wishes from the Observation deck, Narcoossee's and watching Wishes from the dock (getting the theme here?!?), Takeout from Wolfgang Puck Express (delicious lasagne) after a fabulous day at DTD, ending with Cirque de Soleil.

OK, now I'm all excited to get there!!!

Can't wait for your updates as your trip approaches!

I loved reading your list!! You know, I almost put Big Thunder Mountain Railroad on my list, even though I've never ridden it yet. Six Flags Over Texas has a Runaway Mine Train that I have always loved, from the time I was so short that the back of my head used to bump against the seat (that ride is jerky). But we all love the "mine" theme. Clay loves that ride, too, so I KNOW he'll love BTMR. I truly love reading everyone's list, because it helps me narrow down even further what's not to miss! The other ride I have never ridden, although I have been to WDW twice (each 1-day trips), is Space Mountain. When I went in high school, I got home and my best friend could not believe I hadn't ridden Space Mountain...she said you just don't go to Disney World and not ride that!!! I went back again ten years later and still didn't ride it--I guess because of lines and because with little kids, you just have to prioritize. This time we won't have to worry about that and I will ride it!--unless it's closed, of course.

Only 19 days, Wow, look out Florida! Clay and his family are practically on their way.

You will love BTMR. We took my MIL on it a few years ago. She is 88 and afterward, she refused to ride anything with the words train or railroad in the name including the train around the park! The video is hysterical though!

My husband loves Space Mountain. It isn't my favorite but I ride because he does love it.
