The Send-off!

So, Dean, Adrianna, and Abby left today. They are hauling a camper and must travel a bit slower than us (plus, Dean couldn't stand waiting around another single second!!). We surprised them by showing up at their house to send them off! We played "When You Wish" as they walked out of their house to get into the truck. It was great! We were honking and whooping and hollering as they pulled away. The neighbors must've thought we were insane!!

Can't wait to see that camper sitting at Fort Wilderness in a few days!!

We are busy packing and cleaning (so we can come home to a clean house.. very important to me!)... Shae is hanging out in front of BOLT... great movie BTW! We are just aching to pull out of here tomorrow. Now we're dealing with the threat of some bad weather on the way down tomorrow. Say a little prayer that it doesn't delay us too much!

Thanks for hanging out with me for the past few weeks! When we return, I'll most likely post a link to the new TR. I will have chapter links in the first thread, so that should make it easy for you to read along.

LATER GATORS!!!!

Have fun and have a safe drive down! We will be leaving Wednesday. I wish we were going today!

Here's hoping for good weather all week and weekend!

Good luck with the AI audition.

Wish you were here....

Ahhhhhh..... We're here... and enjoying every single moment. Today the weather has been hot and muggy... feels more like July than March! But it made for a great afternoon at the pool today.

We've been having a blast with our friends. We've experienced lots of new things, and have more to look forward to!

Couple of thoughts:

I LOVE BEING A DVC MEMBER!! Experiencing POP Century, then moving into our BCV.... there is no question we made the right choice joining DVC.

Toy Story Mania... BRAVO DISNEY!!! Holy COW this ride is FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC!!

O'Hana.. I will not plan another Disney trip EVER where we don't eat at this restaurant. Greatest food, ever!!

Kissimmee Walmart... My new home for buying Disney clothes. I will not spend $20 for a t-shirt at a Disney Store again.. $9 at Walmart... much better and I can buy a lot more!

American Idol.. no, I haven't auditioned yet (having too much fun with Shaelyn and couldn't pull myself away)...but we DID catch a show (as audience members).. it is GREAT!! They pulled out all the stops for this one. SUPER SHOW!



Well, folks.. I'm off to Fort Wilderness campgrounds for a cook out with our friends, and the Chip and Dale sing-along. Take care!

Glad to hear you are enjoying the world! Sounds great! I love reading through this report- but I really loved those mickey head paint chip calendars! I was at Home Depot today and picked up a handful to make one for our upcoming trip in June. Did you take a head off each day- did you attatch them with tape-was there a countdown number underneath? It looks so cute! What a great idea!

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you hang around for the TR. I'm slow to post sometimes (especially at the end of the school year!) but I'd love to show you the fun times we are having!

We put the countdown number on the paint chips using a black Sharpie marker. We taped them to the poster board. Underneath, we had different pictures of our favorite things at Disney. (Just went to Google images and printed off different pics). So each day, as we pulled a head off, there was a picture underneath to get us excited!! We will definitely do countdown calendars for future trips!!

Thanks for your kind comments!

The night before we left, I bought the Mickey and Friends pasta (they sell it at WalMart here) and made mac n cheese with it. It was a nice way to kick of the exciting week!!

Make sure you post a picture of your final creation! Are you doing a PTR or TR? I'd love to tag along!

Checking in again!

Shae and I just got back to the villa to eat lunch and nap. It was a great morning at Epcot after a magical breakfast with the princesses!! Shae got to see all of her favorites. She waltzed with Aurora (after knocking her down with a big hug) and hugged Ariel tight. Completely star-struck the entire time.... and didn't eat a BITE!!

The weather is still very hot and muggy.. it truly feels like summer. We are probably going to Stormalong Bay this afternoon, then back to Animal Kingdom tonight.

Crowds are VERY heavy this week! At times it's frustrating, but since we are here for a full week, we don't feel the pressure to get on every ride every time we enter a park. It's been a wonderful slow-paced vacation.

Can't wait to share pictures with you all.. though I really am not taking enough. It's hard to pull out your camera every five seconds. Maybe I need to look into a neck strap!!

I need to get one, too; I wound up holding Disneyland_Mama's camera for a while last summer and she has the neck strap - it was GREAT! So much more convenient than having it in my pocket, bag or dangling around my wrist.

So glad you're having a good trip.

Hi Sooze - I am joining in on your TR. It's off to a great start ... I can't believe you are in Disney right now. That's awesome ! I will be catching up by reading your old TR's.

Hope you and your family have a great vacation.
