Great start! Sounds like a great time!!!

Great photos.
One Man's dream looks really interesting.
And the streetmosphere performers sound great!

I'm glad to hear the wait for TSM was not bad!

i just got finished calculating my quarterly tax payment and my head is about to explode!!!!!!

okay....anyway....

i totally agree with erica as far as us not being able to respond to every single post. there are so many and it would get quite confusing with the two of us "running" this thing!

so i would like to respond to all of you who said anything similar to the following....


great update

cool pictures

you guys are so much fun

i love DHS/TSM/the block party, etc.

and so on and so on and so on.......


THANK YOU!!!!!! we really do appreciate you reading this TR and i hope you don't take offense to not getting a personal response. please keep posting any comments or thoughts you have - it lets us know you're reading! i think this method will help to keep us sane!

and now for some specific answers/responses...

i think the crowds REALLY clear out after labor day. we didn't really notice any crowds that i can think of, other than just your standard disney stuff. we got to DHS around noon and the line said 40 minutes, but i think it took about 30. and we got fastpasses before we got in the standby line and the return time on those were sometime around 5:30 (i think).

i agree!!!! i hate being woken up by an alarm on vacation. now if i naturally woke up early it wouldn't be a problem. my internal alarm usually goes off around 8:30, so i'm usually up by 9:00. if you're going in january i doubt you'll have trouble getting on TSM!

well, we have to credit memom for our meeting. we met on her TR. i noticed erica's name (vandyfan) and, being a vandyfan myself, i know that you don't see too many of us around. so we started talking and it turns out we're the same age and just have a lot of stuff in common. she lives pretty close to my family in tennessee and so i see her sometimes when i go home for a visit.

Sorry, punkin, I couldn't pass up the chance to ruffle your feathers.

Oh, shoot, there I go again!

Running quickly away now....

Your too funny MeMom, I think you have the funniest comments. I'm glad you don't make fun of my spelling. Taxes do not sound like alot of fun. That squirrel will haunt me tonight, its scary. Loved the balloons, I wonder how many they can carry at once? Vandyfan your pics of the topiaries are beautiful, I don't remember Mickey being there on my last trip or am I just crazy. I can't wait for more.

if i have nightmares about birds tonight i'm gonna blame you!!!

i found out on this trip that erica doesn't like frogs. especially ones that pee on your hands and follow you up the stairwell at pop.

Dawn answered you well. The one cool thing is we actually 'met' in person for the first time at a Vanderbilt game!!

And as Anastasia said....."OH can I be a VANDERBILT GIRL too!!!???!!!???" We told her of course!!

The really cool thing is she comes to me since her family is here!!

i like any kind of frog. and the reason they pee on you is because they're scared. poor little froggies.

you have to remember that i've had geckos that fly, fat frogs, fire belly toads and the list goes on.

and i STILL hate birds!!!!!! they're evil, i tell you.
