What hotel are you staying at overnight in Buffalo? We're starting to think of staying over instead of leaving at some crazy hour in the morning.

MMmmm and Tonga Toast. I could so go for a piece of that right now!
Thanks!

Check out www.parksleepfly.com

There are threads on the canadian boards that rate the hotels at the airport. I've stayed at a couple but best western and the millienium are my favorite. The best western is cheap and cheerful plus they have breakfast. The millienium is a bit fancier, next to the walden galleria mall, accross from the olive garden and krispie creme with Target down the street and they have an indoor pool. Breakfast is usually not included.

This time I am paying for my own parking and getting the hotel seperately. It worked out cheaper for me since I am only parking for three nights.

Happy Birthday and I hope your trip is everything you dream of. I can't imagine only doing a weekend, I wouldn't know what to cut out but it seems like you have everything under control.

I'm back!

Got in late last night. We rolled into the driveway after 2 am.

We had a great time. Dh sucessfully surprised me for my birthday. It wasn't jewelry-I don't want to get anyones hopes up. After all it is my Dh we are talking about. He's distantly related to Scrooge after all. But still it did cost some money and most importantly it meant he had to do some disney research and put time and effort into it.

I'll admit I was kind of scared to spend all that time alone with Dh. Silly isn't it after being together for 18 years? I was skeptical and afraid that we wouldn't remember how to have fun together just the two of us. I needn't have been. We remembered. In fact we had way more fun than we did on our Disneymoon almost 13 years ago.

He did hit the wall at one point. I'll cover it in more detail in my actual report. Although we had a blast, this trip did not turn him into a Disney finatic.

I was able to try some things I've been wanting to for years and my list of things is getting shorter. So I've still got a list for the next trip. Whenever that is.

The kids did just fine with my parents. My parents are still napping.

We're off Friday for the weekend. Which means I won't be able to start my TR until after this weekend. Surprisingly Dh suggested we take the laptop with us so that I can start typing it out. Perhaps I will. I was just surprised he brought it up.

I do promise I will be writing a report. I took way too many pictures not to do one. I even took "foodie pics". It's just that you'll have to wait a week. I'll try to make it worth it.

O.k I have subscribed and was actually thinking about you last night when you would've been on your flight...I was sad for you!! ahhhh.....
Well glad you had a good weekend, I bet it seems a blur right now....when Dave and I went alone last year for 4 days it seemed a blur afterwards....but a lovely blur.
I was just sitting here thinking I can't wait until next March break for our next trip ... that will mean no 2009 trip and will break our current run of yearly trips but husband would be quick to point out that "ahhhh last year you went 3 times Denise so you can't complain can you??"... Of course I can. It doesn't help my cause but complain I can.
Can't wait to see your photos and hear about the weather and crowds and fun you had.

Thanks! Of course if I had given Dh the freedom to do what he wanted we never would have left the resort! He understood the theory behind getting to the parks at opening but he didn't like it much.

Thank you. My plans changed a bit but in the end we were both happier. Stay tuned to find out what we did instead and why.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! It is true you just can't get everything done in a weekend. I had to think about what I really wanted to do most and for the rest of the stuff have the courage to walk by it while chanting "I will be back again another day". It seemed to work.

Oh, don't be sorry. Thanks for thinking of me at all. I'm honoured. In fact I'm taking a cue from Disney and I'm planning on celebrating all year long.

Good to hear from you. Still owe you that iced cap.

I remember you did all those trips last year. To quote Yoda (badly) "Sorry for you, I don't feel". Where are staying for the march break trip this time?

A lovely blur is a good description.

I will be back with the report soon. It's this work thing that keeps getting in the way. It's a good thing I love teaching so much.

Hey it's my other neighbour! Howdy!

Yes I did. I could break into song spontaneously. Specifically I was thinking of the flashdance theme.

Now, I've had the time of my life...

I suppose I should think of a Disney one. Believe it or not nothing is coming to mind. Not much is on my mind at the moment. Lack of sleep really does that to me.

Dh is out working and I'm manning the fort myself tonight. Is 7pm too early to put a 10 year old to bed?
