Today we are looking forward to ....





getting autographs with friends, both old and new

We once again will be getting a new book for our autographs and pictures. WE will have to see who makes the "cut" for the book this year. Just because it is signed doesn't mean it gets a slot for a picture in my girls world. Also I have a feeling one book might be interesting....

Some of the people we have not gotten before that we are looking forward to are: (from Hannah's quick thoughts today)

Tinkerbell
The Incredibles
Mulan
Aladdin
Captain Hook
Pinnochio
Lilio and Stitch

and just maybe we will meet some of the "boy" characters- Cars, Buzz and Woody....

Are the girls going to help choose the photos for Luke's book, or is that going to be Mommy's project?

Your DHS day looks fun filled. I hope you get to do it all!
If we can't we can go back on our "open" day --- keep in mind I have it planned already in my mind.

Sounds like a great day! I can smell the turkey legs now!

We love it when we are able to add a little Disney shopping into our errands. It makes the trip feel closer, closer, closer!
I need to get one Walmart trip soon, with packing list in hand and knock some purchases off.... I wish I could have sent our weather your way, the forecasters were wrong again, we were supposed to have terrible weather, but had another beautiful day!

Your plans for DHS look great -- I think you will find that Luke can just sit in someone's lap during the ride.

Have fun at your Derby party today -- that sounds like fun!
The Derby Party was fun... we all had our horses, and Luke was the winner (although he did not get a prize, but the rest of the kids did.... I guess he has bragging rights)

Muppets 3D has always been a favorite of mine, so we've taken the kids to see it. They've really enjoyed it! They also really liked Toy Story Mania!
I want to see Up, I hope we can fit it in before WDW!

As for TSM, I though I read somewhere that you couldn't bring a lap sitting child on the ride because of the way the safety bar rests? I am not 100%on this though. I think I read it on a TGM forum!! Your DHS plans look very similar to ours!
I read that too Diane, I need to do some more research. He can sit up, and could sit beside me perhaps? Or I can keep him off, but I think he can ride. I hope we see you all too!

I hope DHS moves to at least a park they will go to, and enjoy! I doubt it will be the #1 park, and that is okay!

It's one of our quick fixes. Even though we just had one for the day during spring break. Thank God it's Almost Summer
Flower and Garden... sounds so fun! Hope it was a great day!

Today we are looking forward to Kali River Rapids. Emily should measure 38 easily, so she can ride with us. Someone will have to stay with Luke, but it will be fun to have Emily with us on a big ride!

I have never been to the Character spot -- it seems like a good place for photos?!! Very cute family picture! I just realized that we are at DHS on the same Sunday as you! We chose that day, b/c there isn't anything special happening on that day -- hoping for a less crowded crowd I am thinking along the same lines .. not rushing. Your plans seem great. You were lucky to have the weather work out this weekend! We still have time to get our shopping done!!! Don't ya love Michael's ?!?

Oh yes! She will certainly like this one! We had a great time this past Nov with DS6 and 3.. DS3 was just 40, so he made this no problem. He really enjoyed it!

I love the character spot at Epcot, and hope that HS is not too crazy that day since there is no Fantasmic, or Extra hours....

I can tell you that my little guy rode on my lap pn TSM back in Sept. when he was almost five months old, and it was fine. I did have to stop shooting when I thought we might be moving soon, though, to brace him on either side with my arms. By the second time through (we went first thing, then went back to get fast passes), he was over it. I'm thinking that next year, though, when he's two ( seriously????) he'll be fighting me for a seat so that he can shoot!

Oh, I think you'll be fine at DHS. I take it your girls aren't into Playhouse Disney if Hannah isn't all that excited? Even my DD (7 on our last trip) still enjoyed the Playhouse Disney show. TSM might change her mind on the park. DHS is a must-do for us due to the Cars/Toy Story characters. Eventually, though, I'm actually going to get to ride the Rock N' Rollercoaster (the kids will be WAAAAYYY outnumbered by adults next trip, so I don't think it'll be an issue).

Monday, June 22nd

At this point we will have visited all four parks, so now we will start returning to catch what we want to see again. Monday and Tuesday I feel that I can be flexible and change as we need to, based on crowds, kids, parents and grandparents.....

Our only must do is dinner- LeCellier! I cannot wait for this meal again. DH really loved it and wanted to get there again. On the Dining Plan it is a good meal to have, plus I know that my parents will enjoy it! Hope the kids have fun too, most of the meals we have ADRs for are ones for them... this is for the adults!


Making rope drop will probably happen, as it will most days because to be honest we are up. My parents will be up and even when we try to sleep in we are up, even after busy WDW days. So for the morning, I think we will go to MK. We will try to plug in some of the favorites this morning, and things we missed on Saturday. No big lunch plans, probably have it at MK and then head back for some rest/naps/swim.

Since we are headed to EPCOT that night, we might try to hit some favorites again before/after dinner. Our dinner is early that night, so we will see.

Another possible thing is we could go to MK after dinner if we want, it is open late so we could enjoy the night there. If we end up having a late night, Tuesday is open until our ADR for Fantasmic Dinner package that night, so we could rest up that morning.


CRAZY BUSY ME... We have ADRs for Crystal Palace for breakfast!


Have a great week everyone! We had another nice weekend weather wise, which the forecasters did not predict, so no complaints here. I hope we have time to get our flowers planted and that spring temps are here to stay!
