What a fantastic update and all the characters you got to meet!! Max...oh I love the Goofy Movie, how fun you were able to meet them!! Can't wait to see Luke's pictures with Minnie!!!!

I just love to see when the princesses take a few moments and spend it with each child! I'm sure Hannah just loved her Mulan time!!

Glad you were able to just leisurely explore that morning in EPCOT!!!

I love that Mulan and Hannah backshot that MeMom commented on, it just looks so sweet! Did you ask them to walk away or was Mulan taking Hannah to show her somthing?
The girls dresses are adorable! Were they excited to wear them? I'll bet they were super comfortable!

I was taken aback for a minute upon seeing him... my girls love to meet new characters.

It was a fun morning. I remember looking at my watch and being shocked it was just 11.... we just hit things well.

That was one of the biggest reasons we chose AKV too. The dues are higher, but less points - it probably balances about out....and you are less point poor! Love that term. I like the various choices with AKV, all the way from Value to Conceriage to cater to how many points you want to spend/have left!

I would love to do the Concerige room next year... but I totally love the point choices according to views and all.

That Mulan was sweet. When we returned with Emily they just struck up another great conversation....

How fun that Max was out! Amelia was looking at your pictures over my shoulder and said that Mickey looks strange. I told her to look closer because its Max!

Did the younger 2 kids fall asleep? I'm anxious to see who you saw!
Em never fell asleep.. she fought her sleep hard, but eventually as the week went on slept a few times.

We happened to just see Mulan as she was walking back to her spot. I guess she had just came out, so Hannah got to walk with her. Mulan asked her all kinds of things about our trip, what she likes and it was funny because Hannah told us about it... normally her answers are nothing.

We just caught her coming out to her spot and were going to go get in line, instead Mulan said just come with me....

oh no! i hope emily got to see her later. pretty cool that you guys just ran into her though.

You weren't kidding when you said you got there early -- you were right up against that rope!!!

Great character interactions and the girls look so cute in their princess sundresses.

great morning! Did you take advantage and get child swaps this year?? That was my kids favorite part last year ( they loved that Emma couldn't ride so many things).. you always have such great Epcot experiences!

LOVED this update. We saw some of China, not all of it, so I liked seeing these photos. AND the girls looks so sweet in those dresses!! Your PTR showed the dresses but not them in the dresses, and what cuties they are!

Looks like a great day so far! Nice and quiet Epcot!

So our DVC packet came yesterday... so I snapped a few pictures. We need to get the packet completed and mailed back this weekend.



DH was home... he knew better than to open it!









It came with an 08-09 planner... is there a newer one out there... if so how do I get it.

I hope to get on the DVC site tomorrow. DH had his work retreat here, so I have been vacated!


The rest of EPCOT pics are uploaded... tomorrow.

Oh, how I love the pretty glossy DVC stuff. I like that bag, too! I am imagining how good it would look in the car on the way to Disney! Thanks for taking the pics, Laura!

There is a new planner, the 2009.



I would contact DVC to get it sent out, I can't believe they sent that one........ We've had our new one for a couple of weeks.
