Thanks for your trip report Kev, they're an entertaining read, the accompanying photo's are fantastic also - I know what you're saying about expense, Disney holidays are not the cheapest; but the happy expressions amongst all your family members show that it is money well spent.

Roll on 2011!

Now come on, Kev - fess up. I heard you got through a 3-pack of super-absorbent kitchen roll.

we won’t have any DVC points available until 2011 at the earliest
We also missed our good friends Deb and Matt. In happier times they would have been with us.
2011 is, of course, "the big one" - your 25th wedding anniversary, the girls' 21st and 18th birthdays respectively, and my 50th. I think we need to start making plans now. At least it would give me something to look forward to, even if it does seem like a long way off at the moment.

And, Susan, Oklahoma is always at the forefront of our minds. Just as soon as we can somehow rustle up the requisite funds, I promise you we'll be there.

A great read, as always, Kev. Having had the good fortune and privilege to holiday with you on several occasions, I can quite literally say that I felt as though I was there with you every step of the way.

Kev, read and enjoyed (yet again) your trip reports, each and every day - although I do have to go back and look at the pictures now as I read them at work and, for some reason, can't viw them there.

How very lucky you are that you got to share your holiday, once again, with some wonderful people and, as I said to Susan last night, I hope our next trips to the World manage to coincide again - I feel another Jellyrolls trip coming on

Joh - you really must look harder.

It's towards the bottom of the first UK Trip Report page.

I have to say that you are without doubt the only person who can make me laugh out loud, quite hysterically at times, through a trip report.

Your family are beautiful and you all look so happy to be together and I thoroughly enjoy reading you reports.

I look forward to reading many more in the future, oh, and i'm with you on the pixies

I have been slowly working through your TR and have just finished. What a great holiday for all of you. The main thing that sticks out to me is how much you all seem to love & appreciate each other (family & friends). That is very rare and a lot of people could probably take a few tips from all of you about "how to do WDW in a big group and still get along". Thanks for sharing all of the stories & pictures.
