Hello Snowbirds!

I'm still here...was gone for a few days, to San Antonio to see my dad, who had heart bypass surgery (on Valentine's Day, of all days! ). He's recovering well, although he has a ways to go still.

Amanda--hugs and prayers to your family.

Thanks to everyone sharing pictures. I can't seem to get motivated to organize mine at all. I have done a little reading up on Disneyland Paris, though...but I doubt we'll get there before next year. We are making progress toward the move to Belgium this summer, though, so we are at least getting closer to DLP!

Hello Snowbirds!

I was just posting my Spectro pics on my TR today, so I thought I'd post them here too~

Concrete? No.

Plans that have only been mentioned in passing to my DH? YES!

I'm really hoping (and secretly saving) to go again the same time next year with Belle in tow. She was be 2 1/2, so I think it will be fine. We will stay at POP instead of a Deluxe, though. No biggie! So long as we actually get to go.

Shelly- Are you planning on suprising the boys again next year?

That sounds like a good plan Soleil! Does your DH know?

I doubt I could pull off another surprise like that! Although they said that they liked it that way - not having to count down for months and months before the trip. I figured they would miss that.

Plus I think now they know better and would know if I said that we weren't going for a few years that it would be a big fat lie! They know there's no way I could go that long!!

We'd like to go the end of Jan early Feb next year!
As some may know I ws looking for a mommy daughter trip in August.Actaully booked it and cancelled. With the economy, you never know what may happen and I chickened out worried about $, weather and crowds. Going back again would be so much less of a commando trip, we've tried all we want and perhaps can take our time? or am i fooling myself

Love the Spectro pictures Shelley! mine didn't turn out so well (were those with your little pink point n shoot?)

I am actually listening to Spectro right now! how fitting! I think I might cry! I almost teared up with Big Blue World from Nemo ( that just ended)!


Disney on Ice in a week! So I'll have a small Disney fill!

We were thinking about a short August trip too, but then decided to just forget it and plan for a longer trip next year - maybe 9 days!!

Yep, those Spectro pics were taken with my Sony Cyber-shot!

We saw Disney On Ice last Friday - Disneyland Adventures. It was pretty good. I posted pics a few pages ago.

Shelly we were thinking about those same dates in January! Although if they're still doing the birthday promo, hubby's bday is the 27th, so it would be almost silly NOT to be there on that date to get the extra merchandise voucher! So we'll see. I think my boys will get jealous that daddy always gets Disney for his bday and they don't, but they have July and August bdays and that's just SO HOT!!! I wouldn't mind doing the August (his bday is the 30th) since the crowds are lighter and they usually offer free dining, but OH, the heat...

And how have I gone all of these trips without seeing SpectroMagic??

I would like to go the same time next year too-end of Jan into Feb, before the rate change. Does anyone know if they have the dates for marathon weekend yet? Shelly, your pictures are really good--thanks for posting them.

My plans sound the same as yours! I'm secretly planning a trip in my head for next winter too. dh doesn't know about it and he just rolled his eyes at me when I brought it up. I'll be lucky if I can talk him into the following winter. I have my ways though... (insert evil stepmother laugh here)

I just finally saw Spectro and Wishes for the first time this past trip. I've yet to see Fantasmic.

Not to be a glass half empty kinda person but what did you NOT get to see or do this trip that you had wanted to?
