Yay for the Single Digit Dance!!! I see Caitlin told you all she "officially" made the Dean's List. I already told ya'll that but she was worried her grades wouldn't be what she expected and that I would "jinx it". So now it is official since she has her report card! Her dad and I couldn't be prouder. She is smart and beautiful both inside and out!

Those old pictures Caitlin posted sure bring back some memories! Unfortunately I don't have any pics from my first 3 trips as my DM still has them all. When I think of Caitlin's visits many things come to mind. Her first trip she was only 2.5 and what I remember most was how well behaved she was and how she met people from around the globe. She was an early talker and just started talking to whoever was in line in front or behind us. People were guessing she was 5 since she was so articulate! Her trip at 5 was truly magical ! We did HDDR, the Luau, Character beakfasts and she was chosen to pull the sword out of the stone! She believed that made her the ruler of the MK! Sadly we have no pics of that because our family had split up and her dad and I were in Tomorrowland with the camera! We were so upset when we found out what we missed! That same trip we met a character handler and started talking and he would tell her what character was coming out and exactly where to stand so she could meet them first! We must have met 10 characters within a half hour with no wait times! That was really fun! Its hard to believe that was 13 years ago and she's now in college. Time goes too fast! But enough of the reminiscing since we only have 7 DAYS til we go back and make new memories!!

I think we have lost our readers. We haven't heard from anyone in a few days. Anyone still with us? Well I hope you're still out there and we haven't bored you away!

We are at 6 days now! I must admit this swine flu thing is getting to me a little bit.If we weren't flying to WDW next week none of this would be worrying me BUT since we are I am a tad nervous. We aren't cancelling but we are taking some extra precautions. I have stocked up on Purell and put Clorox wipes in the suitcase to wipe down the room and door knobs. DH and Caitlin think I'm a little nuts but better safe then sorry! I am also considering renting us a car. I think being on an overly crowded bus packed in like sardines might make me just a wee bit paranoid. Hot Wire has some great prices since it's such short notice. I will need to decide this weekend though. So...if you are still out there...does anyone have any words of wisdom about avoiding the flu?...should we rent a car or stick it out on the buses?

Hi! Glad to hear you're still with us! One of the things that stands out to me about those pics (besides aging ) is how much the characters have changed too! They all have different outfits and Hook looks completely different. It was fun back then how characters just roamed around and there weren't so many lines.

HI! I just found your PTR! You're almost ready to go!

I love the old pics! Workaholic and Bargain Betty sure look like they had a blast in the 80's! Buzz looks very small in comparison to how big he is now.
Don't forget to go and meet Buzz and Woody in Pixar Place right across from TSM. When we went there was almost no line. I think it opens at 10am.

Hi and Welcome ! That 80's trip (not sure if it was 85 or 86) was Workaholic's first time. He fell in love with it and is almost as big a fan as Caitlin and me. We will have to take him to see Buzz and Woody's new place. When we were there in Dec. we were so focused on TSM we totally missed that! I've seen other people's pics and it looks really cute!

Still here. Just really busy this week. Can't see your pics now, cause I'm at work. Darn!

I think renting a car is a great idea. Not so much because of disease transmission (although I can see that concern), but because it makes travel everywhere a bit easier. It also allows side trips to the nearest walmart/food store for anything you may have forgotten or for beverages!

Glad to see you're still with us! I am leaning towards getting a car. Not only can we avoid the overcrowding but you're right it is nice to be able to go offsite if need be. Last year after I dropped the camera in the water we would not have been able to replace it if we hadn't had a rental car to get us to Walmart. Now that our trip is so close the rental price is half what it was when we booked the trip!
