Great updates and pictures!

I am sorry that your mom's feet and ankle were bothering her. That's no way to start a trip like WDW. You were very smart to get her to use a wheel chair.

It's good to know you liked the Wave. It does look very interesting. Was it loud inside?

You have a great day going at Epcot. I'm glad your mom and sis liked Soarin'. It's good to see you survived Mission Space also.

Congratulations!!!


And, wonderful update! Ahhh, Soarin'! I'm looking forward to taking my in-laws on that in December and seeing their faces light up. I'm sure it was just awesome to watch your Mom and Jodi's reactions!! And front row.... I've gotten it once, and it was great!!! You just get even more immersed into it all.

I agree with you, Ellen does need an update. When did they update it? It seems mid-90s to me.

Love the pics of you and Jodi! And I love your top! Where did you get it?

Front row, center on Soarin sounds fantastic. And I agree with everyone who said the desserts look great. Do you remember what Jodi and your mom's desserts are called?

All caught up!!

[I'm on house duty while the DW and DD go trick or treatin' ... I've only had one candy bar so far!! ]

First day at Epcot ... Soarin' ... Test Track ... great minds do think alike ... ...

If ya wanna know what I mean, I guess you'll have to check out my TR!! (check out the siggie ...)

We've had breakfast at Sunshine Season a couple times (very good!) right after Soarin' - and the lunch/dinner menus look great ... but the DW doesn't care for the "cafeteria" atmosphere of the place when there's all those cool restaurants in Epcot ...

Maybe on our next trip ...

Hi Kristen! I just stumbled onto your trip report today and then noticed that you live in Plymouth. I live in Plymouth too! After reading through all the posts I noticed you live in West Plymouth. Me too! We are practically next door neighbors, LOL! I am a transplant also. I grew up in Northern California, then my husband and I moved back here a little over 15 years ago. He is from Plymouth and his family is here. Small world, isn't it?

Anyhow, I am enjoying your trip report. It is great reading about your adventures with your mom and sister. We are DVC owners and were in WDW in May. This Summer and Fall have been super busy, so we are planning a big trip next year with my family as they are all over the place. So right now I am living vicariously through you.

Happy Halloween!

Great updates! It looks like it was a gorgeous day both in terms of crowds and weather! Your poor mom and her feet. I'm so glad you convinced her to get a wheelchair!

Don't you love seeing first timer's faces on Soarin'? I believe that is my very favorite ride in all of WDW.

I the shirt you're wearing and that it coordinates with your sis!

Can't wait for more!

Happy Halloween!!

I'd love to see some pics or your little ones dressed, if you have them!! Feel free to post them!! I hope you don't mind, i'll share some of my boys after tomorrow. We are having 4-5 families over for pizza about 5 and then will plan to trick or treat about 6 or so....should be fun. Be safe and have fun!!!!!
Happy belated Halloween! We did not go Trick or Treating last night as DD6 has been confirmed with the Influenza A virus (aka most likely H1N1 according to DR) so DH set up our downstairs as a haunted house and the Great Pumpkin left each one a gift.

But what a perfect night too for Halloween. However I still had them get in their costumes except DS1 refused to get into my Mickey Mouse costume. I can't wait to see your boys all dressed up!


We have yet to try Soarin, but we are determined to try it this time. The 2 other trips things always came up and we weren't able to get back there with our FP tickets.

Beautiful Epcot pictures! Made me warm on this cool November morning.

We love that chicken at Sunshine Seasons! It is one of our favorite counter service meals in all four parks. The desserts look great!

And yay for your daughter/Mom trip in January! How fun! Are you doing at PTR? Have you ever done a trip like that with your daughters before?

Wave update coming up!
They won't have it That's why I keep going back with my daughters! We went in Jan 09 and had a blast, even though we were sick. We were going to go back and stay at CR but have recently changed to Poly!

The link to my TR is in my signature, and it also includes all the Jan 2010 planning updates. Hope you get a chance to check it out...

Now back to catching up on YOUR TR

Morning Guys!! Hope everyone had a great Halloween! We did, we had SO much fun, Halloween isn't my favorite holiday but this year it was fun, the kids had fun and all the parents did, too. We had everyone over here for pizza at 5, the kids played in the backyard for a bit and then about 6:15 we were on our way....they made out like bandits and we probably walked about a mile in our neighborhood! But what a perfect night for it, it was high in the 60's, clear and a nice breeze. Just thought I'd share a few pics...Cole decided, as we were dressing him, he wanted NOTHING to do with his Mickey costume. Thankfully we had a back up in the closet from one of the other boys, a cow, so we stuck him in that. I really wanted him to wear Mickey because my other two boys all wore it at 2 and I wanted to have all three in the same costume for a picture. Oh well....I think I may still try now....

Me "dressed" for the festivites!


The crew


My boys- 2 racecar drivers and a cow!


Me & my baby, I mean, cow


We're off to see what kind of Halloween deals we can find for next year, I bought the big boys costumes last year on clearance, so we'll try that again this year. And I have Ethan's 7 year pics scheduled at 11 a.m., too, we'll see how that goes....hope everyone has a great day!
