Ahhh, I love your favorite memories list! Your trip last year was so much fun! I remember laughing so hard at Em's comments and questions to the princesses! Was it Belle that she asked where the Beast was?

10 Favorite Moments- (in no special order)

1. Arriving at WDW via Magical Express. There is nothing better than starting a WDW vacation!

2. Dole Whip- I was not sure what I would think.... but that was sure yummy. I also loved my frozen lemonade slush at EPCOT and my two ice cream chocolate chip sandwiches! It was fun eating for two at WDW!

3. Magic Kingdom Dream Fast Passes- what a great treat these passes were, I just wish I could have used some of them!

4. Emily's kiss from Snow White and her princess moments. She at two had a lot to say to the princesses. It was so fun hearing her ask them questions. I don't think they were expecting it from that little baby face!

5. The fountains- I cannot wait until Luke can get in on the action. It is those small moments of fun that make WDW so great. I am glad my girls appreciate the little fun moments just as much as the big rides and things!

6. Soarin' so glad they let pregnant women on! I love that ride!

7. Emily going down the slide at POFQ! It was so fun to watch!

8. Hannah realizing that we were indeed going to WDW... while her intial reaction stunk... she was so happy to get a trip in that she did not think would happen.

9. Character Connection picture of the gang at EPCOT- I am sure we will never get such an awesome picture again with that many characters. What a special treat!

10. Getting to go two times in less than 12 months. That was a real treat... I won't ever forget our last trip as a family of 4, a special princess trip!
What a great list! I had forgotten that you were surprising Hannah! Also, I will never forget smiling ear to ear when reading about Emily's Snow White kiss!!

What wonderful memories from your last trip!

What a bummer about not being able to get the discount on your rooms.

Brooklynn did this same thing. She walked straight up to Belle and immediately said, "Whea Beas?" in her baby talk, with her little hands up in the questioning position.


Love the Top Ten list. You'll have a whole new list very soon. I'm looking forward to seeing how it changes now that Luke is added into the mix.

And if you get another Number 9, I'm going to start vacationing with you!!!

Still enoying the daily upates ... loved the top 10 memories from your last trip. Starting the trip with ME really does beat the old shuttle/taxi service. The character connection family pic experience was awesome I remember it from you last TR.

Today we are looking forward to





Miyuki in Japan! Last year Hannah and I visited and got our own piece of candy (which lasted ten minutes because mom let it fall off the stroller)

I would like to experience more of EPCOT's entertainment this trip!

I remember those pics. We saw her last year but the crowd was so big we didn't stay. Maybe this year.

I really want to see her! It's amazing what she can do. I remember that story about the candy dropping last year, so sad.

Sorry about the discount, but I agree about the switching....such a pain in the neck!

I hope I am not wrong, but I do think you will like CSR overall---especially the buses!!! But each resort is different, so who knows!!! I just hope you get your requests!!!
I always worry about resorts... I am a creature of habit, not a fan of change. Therefore I like to stay where I know... however every trip at WDW I have enjoyed the resort we were at, value through deluxe.

Belle had questions, Snow White (where are the dwarfs), Ariel (where is Flounder and Sebastian?) , Sleeping Beauty(where are the fairies?) ... she was quite the wonderer. I will be really interested to watch her interact this year since she still is one that has great lines!

It is the little moments like the kiss that I love at WDW!

I am okay with it, I just can't risk moving rooms and having to wait for my things with an infant in case we need to go back and rest and our stuff it is still in transit!

I am a ME fan. It gets us where we need to be, saves us rental car money and well it has a taste of Disney!

I was on Steve Soares site and it looks like we might miss her, our EPCOT day is her day off. So we will have to find more fun things to do...

I could watch her for a long time, DH and Em not so much. Hannah though loves to watch people doing things. She is very into the process of things.

Your memories list is so wonderful! I think it is great! I loved the "surprise" treat of going more than once in 12 mos, the dole whips, and my favorite, your daughter's reaction. I am so hoping my boys have as much excitement..

I also hope you feel good about CSR, I have seen lots of positive reports about it. The latest reports have me thinking it is nice!

Can you believe these final days until planning are here?!?! Hard to believe it!

This will be the first time we go when it ISN'T the FWF... Thank goodness for your PTR and others like it so I know what to look for! You all are helping me to collect my "must see/do"!

And I also forgot to say a big for your CPalace morning ADR. Don't you just love it when things work out that way??!!

EPCOT has this new thing called Kim Possible I think Hannah would really enjoy it. It's a great family activity. We did it last weekend and had a great time together. We were just saying earlier today how we would like to be doing that right now.

I loved reading your "memory lane" post! Recalling the highlights of past trips is always the best way to get even more excited about the upcoming one!

Have the girls decided what animal they want Miyuki to make if they get picked?

Wow, it looks like we'll be in Japan quite a while, with the pick a pearl and trying to watch the candy lady. That bird is so amazing! What a fun favorites list. We're getting close, Laura!
