Thanks, need to work on the next fifty, I'll be doing that this weekend I think/hope- work is keeping me VERY busy. And I just signed up for a 5K Walk/Run for Autism on the 26th of this month. Plus everything else you know, I think most of you all have kids.

oh Wow, HI, thanks for joining you'll soon learn I'm pretty indecisive and have changed my mind on several things regarding our trip, though I'm noticing many DISers change their plans, like room upgrades or resort changes, and ADR's, etc. It's all part of planning a GREAT trip I suppose.

last 50 continued...

76. stamping our passports

77. the magic of Disney Animation

78. Barnstormer fun

79. Mommy and Daddy ride Rock n' Roller Coaster

80. pictures in front of the Tree of Life

81. a magic carpet ride

97. the ladies enjoy an afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian

98. carefree days of fun

99. Celebrating with Family

100. We drive 831 miles to our Happy Place!



In purchasing news: I've purchased some small gifts for the boys to open on mornings before heading to the parks. Love the dollar section at Target. I'll share pictures closer to the trip after I've collected all the little treasures.

I also purchased my first Vera which I had planned to use on our trip, but it's a bit smallish for my taste, might be good for walking around the resort and going out to eat, but I'll need something bigger for a day in the park


And in planning news, waiting to see if the book 4 get 3 offer gets extended through June like last year, though I feel I must book soon just to get something set. My parents are heading to Vegas for a couple weeks, so when they get back Mom said we would finalize our plans and get things booked, we want to make sure our dates/plans coordinate.

Guess that is it for now, haven't had much time to DIS, so still catching up on all of your PTR's and TR's

You moved to my hometown!
And if I read correctly I got married near yours? At hotel coranadi while visiting friends in riverside
We tried to go to the Christmas carol train but the line was 2+ hours by the time we got there.
We gave an iep for speech- while the set up wasn't the most organized (it took 6 months to get her started)- the speech pathologists are wonderful and my dd is learning so much. Hopefully you will have a good experience with yours too
you asked about a aaa car rental- with my regular car insurance I am covered if driving a rental- yours might cover it too?

I tried to make them do-able, so that is our goal is to actually get them all done too. I'm even going to take my own pictures of each thing to replace these ones I got searching on google. I can't wait to read your TR, I know you are leaving soon, I'll probably catch up on your PTR tomorrow.

yes, it is quite lengthy process, Jack has been tested twice, and both times it was several months of paperwork, waiting, testing, waiting, more testing, you get the idea. New area so new rules again, still waiting to see how it all pans out.

Yeah my Mom explained to me how car rental insurance works, but we aren't going to California in December anymore, and I believe we are driving to Florida in June. It's just easier to tote all our items.

btw

Thank you and very cool. Of course great minds think alike

I got the new 2010 Birnbaum today, and also picked up the Hidden Mickey's book to help with our Hidden Mickey search The new passporter doesn't get released until November, but planning to pre-order it soon.

Long work day tomorrow, must get things ready and head to bed.

I didn't know a new edition of the Passporter was coming out. I've really resisted ordering one at all, but think I will. Another resource to fill the time, and obssess (sp?) over. Is it best to order it directly from their website??

Why do you find it a good thing to have? Would love your thoughts on it!
