Thanks. The Peter Pan/Wendy thing was really cool. Nobody else noticed them the whole time we were there. Plus, the park was busy.....so it was all very bizarre.

And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost,
They caught the last plane for the coast
The day....the Mickey...died.



Everytime I hear that song, Im gonna substitute "Mickey" for "music". Im sure ill get some strange looks, but I dont care!!!

Awesome trip report!! Maybe I can get you to write mine.

Sing it proudly.....they wouldn't give you strange looks if they knew the story.

I'm glad you liked the TR.....but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to write somebody else's story. My TR method is to only record the facts as I have personally witnessed them......with little or no embellishment.

Ahhh...reading your last installment was about as sad as leaving WDW itself. A few tears were shed on my end, thinking of those last few hours in the parks and that lonely ride back to the airport (especially without Pal Mickey).
I am hoping you do another TR. I will have to figure out how to add you to my favorites list, or however it works on the DisBoards. (Still a little new to the boards.) Don't want to miss the next TR!!!
No trips planned in the near future, but I am working on my DH. We just got a hybrid with fuel mileage around 50 miles to the gallon. Is it me, or does that call for a trip to Disney!!! From Ohio to WDW...under $100.00 in fuel. Your TR has inspired me to continue suggesting such a trip (or nagging, as the case may be!)
I have really enjoyed my time reading! Thanks PPA!!!

I too have come out of lurkdom for this last-ish post! I have had a great chuckle with every chapter... a lot of them at the crazy reference points you use to get the point across! What a fun read and definitely one of my favorite trip reports..okay so I have only read 3 so far...but still one of my top 3..I hope you will write about future trips..your story-telling skills should not be hidden from the world or at least the disboards!

Howdy Emser. It's always sad to leave WDW....even when you're only reading about it in a TR. I'm pretty sure I'll do another one after our December trip.....it's actually kind of fun.

$100 to get to WDW......what are you waiting for? Just pack up your suitcases and tell your DH along the way.

I've still got one last little thing I want to post on this TR.....it'll probably come in the next day or two....so stayed tuned.

I'm so glad you chimed in.......it's really nice to hear that people are enjoying my nonsense. I'm extremely honored that I'm on your top 3 list....but I'm going to pretend that you've already read hundreds of these things......that way it's even more impressive.

I just read your whole trip report tonight and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it! This is by far the best report I have seen- I was laughing out loud so much, my DD 17 wanted to hear it as well.
THANK YOU

I realize I'm coming in on the tail end here, but I just wanted to say I've had a fantastic time reading your trip report...I just started it a couple days ago and now I'm all caught up...with there being hardly any updates left.

Thanks for sharing!

QUOTE=Peter Panic Attack I've got a confession to make......I made the Everest thing up. But still....you've got to admit....it would be an awesome picture.


Alas, I must admit I knew you were kidding, hence the . But I was secretly hoping that your photographic prowess was equal to your trip report writing prowess and the picture would somehow appear. Lol at the thought of it!!!

Hooray for the great spotting of Peter and Wendy!!!

Too sweet about Mickey!

I just read 41 pages to see if I was the only one to notice the use of the phrase "Dang Quesadilla".
Curse you, Peter Panic Attack. You are my trip report hero.
Off to ebay to try and get hosed on a Pal Mickey.

You're welcome. You must have naturally good timing....because you hardly had to wait at all. I've strung everybody else along for months.

Maybe someday I'll give the Everest picture a try....and then go back and add it. Nice use of the angel smiley by the way.

I don't recall anybody else mentioning the quesadilla nugget....kudos to you.

Mention my name on ebay....and you get 10% off all Pal Mickeys. Just kidding....they may actually charge you more.

Thank you....but what's going on with this rash of Pal Mickey thefts? It's an epidemic! If they could only see the pain they leave behind.......

Me and about 625 million or so other people who will be at all the parks it will seem this coming week. By the way, I never exaggerate
