BRAVO!!!! It was a joy to read your trip report. You had me at Don McLean. I'm such a sucker for a surprise happy ending (who on a place like DISboards isn't?!) and you didn't disappoint. Thank you for taking the time to entertain us so well! Enjoy your 5 month break before writing your next report! ... Unless, of course, you'd like to get started on that Pre-Trip Report. You might need to...you should pretty much just admit that you need us in all of our admiring and encouraging ways, and it would be too hard on you to stop writing here completely. Give the people what they want!

You may be right.....I might be addicted to the attention.....I wonder if there is such a thing as Disboard rehab.

Ok, I admit it....I've stayed away....couldn't quite handle the thought of it all comming to an end But, well, I just couldn't stay away forever . And I am soooooo glad I didn't! What a great ending ... in true Disney "happily ever after" fashion

I hope you decide to do a PTR and a TR for your next vacation. Like any great story you want to know that things go well; even after the Epilogue!

Will the tempermental itinerary be succeeded by one of even more tyranical attitude? Will the mysterious DeVine continue to elude the ever seeking Peter Panic Attack....how many more bird encounters can one girl take?

These are all things that will bring us back for a Panic Attack sequel

I had no idea there was so much suspense in my life. I'm getting nervous just thinking about it.

Congrats on completing this awesome TR!

Better keep Pal Mickey on a leash in Dec. I'm thinking there's a gang of PM swiping bandits roaming the World to snatch up any wandering PMs and sell them on eBay.

AWww- How awesome that this trip report ended with such Disney magic! Even though you gave hints here and there, I would have never guessed that you would have been reunited with Pal Mickey in the end. But then, I was also one of those who didn't realize Bruce Willis was dead in the Sixth Sense either. Anyway, it was a pleasure reading your TR. Thank you for sharing your family and your gift of writing with us here on the DIS. Oh, and thank you for ending this TR too -- I'm sure you realized that there would have been mass rioting if you hadn't -- but still, thank for not leaving us hanging.
I'm looking forward to hearing of your next trip -- only 3.5 more months!

Thanks. We haven't worked out all of the details for Pal Mickey's security measures on our next trip......but it will involve roof-top surveillance......and possibly a body double.

Thanks a lot.....but I think you are mistaken about Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense.....I saw him in the restaurant arguing with his wife with my own two eyes.

Time sure flies when you're having fun.....just a couple more weeks and we will make our adr's. After that....it'll be smooth sailing.

I am so glad to read that you got him back. When are the days you guys are going for Christmas? We are going Dec 17-27. I have heard I am crazy for going at Christmas but I want to see all the decorations. I have really enjoyed reading this TR. Hope to see a PTR for your next trip.

Now think about this PPA. Do you really want that kind of role model for poor Pal Mickey after all he's already been through?


Way to go!
What a fabulous Disney ending! BTW, the little blue smiley is crying tears of joy (I couldn't find any other crying smileys, )

Thanks. We arrive November 29th and are staying for eight days. I have heard that Christmas week is busy.....but I guess the good news is that get to spend Christmas at WDW....which should be pretty cool.

The jury is still out on a PTR.....never done one before.

Thanks....and thanks for all your comments throughout the TR. You're probably right about Macaulay....you've got to be careful with those child actors. That's why we won't let Pal Mickey pursue his acting career.

So Pal Mickey is back?!?!? What a twist of events!!! Its like the last show of Newhart....when Bob Newhart wakes up in bed with his first wife from Bob Newhart and only dreamed about the second wife in Bob Newhart!

Simply amazing!

PPA I am so happy to hear of Pal Mickey's triumphant return to the family. Maybe one day he will remember his ordeal and share it with you

Thanks for this most enjoyable TR, as I have said before your writing style is great

Off to enjoy my lunch hour with my fellow Disney addicts in our petri dish (aka Disboards)!

I know.....it was a shocker to us too. It does seem a little like the Newhart show.....except Pal Mickey's never been married......as far as we know.

Thanks. It's true about all the Disboard addicts though....don't you think? Thank goodness I've maintained a healthy perspective.

Peter, so sad to see this come to an end but glad for the joyful family reunion with Pal Mickey! I've read a lot of trip reports and this is definitely one of the best! Thank you for updating so regularly too because I hate waiting weeks between updates. Patience has never been one of my virtues!

I'm jumping in on the consider writing a pre-trip report bandwagon! Just think, you could share with us how Mickey celebrates Halloween and Thanksgiving and his advice on what ADR's to make!

Thanks for making me laugh! Even your responses to your fans had me ! You're the best!

Woo hoo to having a santa Mickey!!!! My grandson has a naked Mickey that we can't keep any clothes on! I have told him that during our trip to wdw next month he can't go if he refuses to wear his little red shorts! If he learns to behave, I'll post a picture of him on EE for you! Who knows, it could be the basis of your picture!!

Thanks again for a fantastic read!
