Good advice, thanks! Down to 3 days now!

Thanks for the info about the driving. I don't think I could do it, wish i could.
take care
I know.. I'm really looking forward to the AI thing.. even if I end up just being an audience member for the week! I have lots of show tunes.. and TONS of Disney stuff that I know well.. but was wondering if I should go for a more "pop" or "current" song!

I don't know what kind of music you like but I enjoy it more when it's an upbeat lively song. Something the audience can get into

Yes, I agree! As much as I LOVE to sing "Part of Your World", I'm sure most of the audience would rather get run over by a Disney Bus than hear that song again!!

I think you should get your Hannah Montana wig out and sing "Best of Both Worlds"! Or something from one of the HSM movies....


Just shoot me now!!!

Thanks Michelle! We'll see if a 35 year old mom in capris and a t-shirt can win the judges over! Should be fun just to try, anways!!

Yay! Glad you made it in time. Shaelyn is at the PERFECT Princess age. She is BESIDE herself knowing she's going to actually see the Princesses in a few days. Can't wait to share it all with you!

from what i have read on some other sites,they make it seem like the CMs go out during the day in the parks and find people to adition then they adition for the judges then, if they pass the first round they get to come back and sing again for another judge from a list of songs, they they get to go out on the stage and go for the 3rd round in front of people.

I think you can actually just show up and audition for the first round (which is just you singing alone for the first set of judges). Then, if you make it past the first round, you go to a place with an ipod loaded with some pre-selected songs. You pick one of those to use for the 2nd round. THEN if you pass that, you get on stage... which, I think, is basically what you just said!

Done with school!!!

I wish you all could see my kids right now! We are officially done with school and focused now ONLY on getting ready for this trip. They are a giddie as can be! Running around, begging us to tickle them until they can't breathe. They are so excited!!!

Trying to get laundry done, things for the car organized, lesson plans done (so I don't have to worry about them on the trip), last minute purchases written on a list, oh... and of course, checking in with the DIS!

I'm sure I'll stop in one more time before we head out. Our plans are to leave Saturday afternoon after naps (which Shae, Matt and I will be taking!!!). That should put us in the Happiest Place on Earth Sunday morning!!!

Weather looks fabulous with only a few scattered chances of rain. Getting REALLY excited!!!!
