Coming out of lurkdom to say hello...loving your report. Your little guy is adorable..btw! And congrats on the new baby girl.

We did Chef Mickey's our last night there in June...I wasn't impressed either. From the check in to the check. The food was just ok....liked the desserts though. The character interaction was ok....but this was our last night there...and the kids had already had the first experiences earlier in the week. I'm sorry Liam was so scared.

Enjoying your TR. You had me when you said diet coke was the exilir of life! Sorry about Chef Mickey's. When a meal goes bad with a two year old, it really goes bad. Can't wait for the next update!

I'm finally caught up. Great pictures and updates. I felt so bad while I was reading about Chef Mickey's. I can't believe the other characters didn't realize how scared Liam was.

sorry Heidi got a little behind there...

1st thanks for the props about my TR and toddler info

For your's glad you're keep it rolling along and putting in little updates about your "carrot"

Sorry you had some minor and major busts on Day 2....

Aldine my oldest DD is SO into horses...if she still is the next time we go, it may be worth a quick detour over to FWC to show her the barn and the picture display thanks for including that!

AHH not sitting on the bus, brings back memories of our trip

I'm so glad Liam loved the pool and sand, he even got his face wet...what fun!

I'm so sorry about CM that is such a shame, the table location, Liam hating the characters, and other stuff, man that must just leave a sour taste in your mouth for the upcoming dinning. I hope he warms up to them.

We've eaten there twice, back in 98 (no kids) and 05 w/ kids, but we had a great time each time, they were both bfasts. sorry

and thanks for the H & L lights of your day that is a great TR writing tip helps you remember everything too.

Looking forward to more as always, but must save all my CHrist mas cd's from Margaret

Scrappie

oh almost forgot...

Question for you...feel free to pm if easier or maybe there are others thinking like me....

The GPS. How accurate was it for you finding your way in and around WDW and such?

DH just got one for Christmas from my parents. One of the options we are toying w/ for our next WDW adventure is staying on property but using a rental van for some of our transportation and a stop to the grocery store, etc.

Plus how much extra did you have to budget in for parking and such?

thanks!

On a happier note, Liam is adorable in every single photo you take!

And I think you may have sold me on CBR!
Thank you about Liam.

I can imagine you relaxing on one of those CBR hammocks!

I thought the GSP did a great job of getting us around. It was very helpful getting us back to the airport because I could actually pick which Terminal (A or B) that I wanted. We did stop using it to get around Disney after a few days because the signage was enough to get us where we needed to go.

We didn't have to pay for parking at the theme parks because we were Disney resort guests....you get a parking pass at check-in. Valet parking is $10 a day at the deluxe resorts. Which I very much enjoyed and would do again.

We went thru a little less then a full tank of gas for the 10 days. Tolls are 75 cents each....I think there are two tolls from the airport to WDW property and of course more tolls if you travel around a bit.

I'm loving your tr report so far. Your pictures are wonderful. And Liam is a doll. Thanks for the info about the GPS. We're thinking of driving down to Disney on our next trip and will be using a GPS to help us find our way. Unfortunately, I don't think the mouse ears are visible up here in Canada.

All roads lead to Mickey Mouse so don't worry!

Signing on!

I stumbled across your TR today and went back and read the entire - yes ENTIRE - pre-trippie first. Needless to say, not much got done around my house tonight! I've just finished your TR so far and am absolutely loving it!

Liam is so adorable and my DH thinks that we are long lost sisters because of the similarities in our OCD Disney trip planning! He thinks I'm the only one that prints out a bunch of different budget comparrison spreadsheets and possible itineraries to obsess over. (Can you tell he hasn't spent much time on the DIS?)

Also, I'm 36 and while my DS is MUCH older than yours (he turned 16 a few days ago!) we are expecting baby #2 in May! I'm 19.5 weeks and we also found out that we're having........a GIRL!

We were planning on going back to WDW last year but spent a zillion dollars in fertility treatments, so that pretty much tapped us out. We're skipping 2009 because DH thinks it's too early to take a baby since we wouldn't be able to go back again the next year. Of course, I'm already planning our 2010 trip when she is a little over 1!

Keep up the great updates and can't wait to hear more!

Congrats!!!! That is so very exciting....you must be thrilled. Are you feeling the baby move a lot? Just in the last two weeks mine had really increased her kicking and such.

I'm 23 weeks along and the baby is the size of a large mango!

Don't laugh, but I almost bought a mango at the grocery store today!

To think that's how big the baby is!
