Stephanie~I would imagine you definitely have to make it worth your time when you travel that far. I thought it was bad having to travel to Florida from Kansas . We're hoping to catch Sea World next time around, but I doubt we'll go to Universal until they open up the Harry Potter part (I'm a little obssessed).

Scott~I understand.....life just gets crazy sometimes. I'm still checking in on your pre trip report, and I see that you got lucky and get to go AGAIN! Well, at least that gives me more trip reports to read. What else would I do during nap time .

Hey, it involves chocolate, so it sounds good to me . I'm just looking forward to going to Kansas City sometime this summer to visit my sister. I spend a lot of time at home, so any little trip sounds good to me!

I've only seen Hershey on tv so maybe you could post some pictures.
Have a great time!

we're almost in same boat

I clicked on your report after you had a reply to my request for the MNSSHP autograph book design. After reading what you wrote, it looks like we are almost in the same boat. I will be 28 in August. We are headed to WDW in Oct & doing the land/sea package. Traveling will be me (the planner), my dh (who is not too enthused a/b the trip - he's afraid that I'm going to run them to death), dd #1 - will be 5 in Nov & dd#2 - who is 13 mos (17 mos at time of trip). We are also going with my cousin & her dh & ds, 3 yo.

We are doing the MNSSHP & my dd#1 will be sleeping beauty & dd#2 is cinderella (#1s old costume). DD#1 is doing the BBB, then dinner w/Cinderella at the royal table, then the MNSSHP. Everyone in my trip thinks I am obsessed with this trip (which I am), but I would like things done right. I called to make ADR exactly 180 days from our trip.

I went to Disney when I was around 12, a field trip at age 17, and we took DD#1 there one day when she was 2 while my husband was there on business. This will be my first time staying on a disney property - POR. Also, this will be all of ours first Disney Cruise. All the adults have been on carnival & RC before. I can't wait to see the kids faces when we see the boat for the first time.

Hope I didn't ramble on too much!

Andrea

It does sounds like we have an awful lot in common . Dh is kind of getting into things since he's seen all of the work I'm putting into it. I can't wait to share all of the magic with my girls too. DD #1 is a princess obsessed girl, and she's been most of them over previous halloweens. \

What are the dates that you guys are going?

Dates

We will be there Oct 5 - Oct 12. I figure this is the last year DD#1 will be a princess. I think by next year she will be grown out of that stage, which is so sad. Time goes by way too fast.

I agree totally..........DD has a Hannah Montana obsession that may overwhelm her princess one any day now, and I'm just not ready for it. I love all the girly stuff and the princesses, so, I have to admit, I feel blessed to have two little girls.....they let me live out my girly, girl needs without feeling silly. I was actually going to do the BBB with her, but I cut my hair short, and I don't think I'll be spending the money on it now.

Just wanted to check in and let everyone know that the planning is continuing. Right now, I'm working on checklist cards for each of the parks included rides that our family has dubbed as "not to be missed". I'm trying to customize it by having the other adults in the trip help.

Here is our Magic Kingdom checklist (pg 1):


I'm also making cards for each of the restaurants we're eating at so that I can do a better trip/dining report. Here is the one I made for Yak and Yeti.

I made them in Photoshop. I'm still learning how to do it, so they're not too intricate. I just put the graphic in the back and then made it lighter and put the text on top.

We have PS Elements at school...I'll try it out. I used to be so good at this stuff, but I have been out of practice!

Beana~If there are some restaurants that you want that I already have done, I'd be happy to post them here so that you could copy them if you like. Just let me know where you're going/which ones you'd like if you're interested

That's awesome!

We're going to Crystal Palace, Kona, Chefs de France, and either Raglan Road or Cap'n Jacks.
