Congratulations pooksma!!!

Love the shirts too. I've been avoiding disneyshopping.com. I know it will suck me in and now that I've entered planning mode for December I just have an excuse!

The pics of your DS with Tigger & Pooh are ADORABLE. I am very tempted to book this just for similar pics...

I have no idea what time is better...! Sorry! We did a late dinner and had to wait for about 45 minutes. It's right next to the arcade, so lots of blinkly lights to entertain a 1 year old.

I've heard if you go right when it opens it is generally the best time...but I would also think a late lunch would work well since many people are back in their rooms napping.

Brag on! Congratulations to you and all of your co-workers and students!
A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes before you bring home any kind of award.

Crystal Palace is a good one. We had good food and good character interaction, and we're starting our July trip with a repeat!

I keep telling her it is time to start her own theatre company. This isn't the first time they have cleaned up at this festival.

She is my favourite director.

So, we're leaving the 10th, but early. When on the 9th are you getting in and what's your plan? We should meet up if we can.

We're possibly meeting with MeMom and co at the beginning of the trip.

I just read through you report and everything sounds great! I was excited to see others will be there the same time we will! It's my hubby's first time so I'm hoping to get him hooked! Maybe we'll run into you all!!

We don't get to the resort until about 7 or 8 pm.

Welcome to our pre-trip report. I just started reading yours and you can tell your dh that he will have a great time on your adults only trip. We did one last year and had a ball. (You have to be quiet about it though, Declan still doesn't know. )

LAst year we had a mini dis-meat at on POTC. It was a fun time.

I sure hope he likes it! I'd like to start planning our next trip!
I've heard a few people mention a possible meet at Epcot on Aug 13th, early afternoon. Let me know if you guys are game!

We're doing Hollywood and Vine Fantasmic package, too. We figured that might be the only way to get in the way that thing is working these days. I'll fill you in on how it goes.

If we could have booked a little later and you guys a little sooner, we could have done this together...finally.

Do you think you'll ever do a holiday trip, like Christmas or Thanksgiving?

You could always book a NYE trip and come to the meet-up at the Poly to watch fireworks rock 2010 in.

We didn't get the package, they were sold out. We did get a time of 5:20 though.

We have talked about a Christmas trip sometime in the next two years; before Declan hits the adult ticket price age.

Brook - were you reading along when we did the summer report? We started off at Crystal Palace, so there are pictures of characters and food there, if you care to go back and look it up. It was our first meal on our first day, right after the afternoon parade, so that should help you find it. There's a picture of Tigger wearing the shades he stole from me!

I'll get a bunch more this summer - hopefully some more of the building and interior design. That's really a beautiful place all around.

Ma and Dad, I know chances are slim, but it would be awesome if you could join us at the Poly on NYE! I'm not sure what our trip schedule looks like next year. We're thinking about Mother's Day, summer, and then something in either October, November, or December. Have you ever been in October? Even if you're not a Halloween person, and I'm really not, Disney World is beautiful all dressed in orange, and MNSSHP is incredible! You'd love the Boo to You parade - just so cool! Thanksgiving is nice, too. The weather is good, but you guys are spoiled to off-times, and it would probably seem crowded. Christmas is good, too.

Heck, who am I kidding? It's all good at Disney World!

We are talking about a trip over Christmas next year. Christmas is one of the times that we can take a trip as we both gets some time off over the holidays. We would love to get there at other times of the year and see some of the special events but I don't see it hapening anytime soon.

Have a great long weekend for those of you in the US. I'll be thinking of you on Monday as I stand in front of my class.
