I like. I'll be ordering one before we head down next month.

Looks like I'm in too. I'm a widowed dad of three great kids. In addition to reading before bed, my kids now take turns reciting our itinerary of our next WDW trip.

Few more things to put in the car and we are out of here. I'll tell Mickey that you guys said hello. Maybe I shouldn't have even mentioned anything about this trip. That way I could probably squirm out of a TR. I think I dread that more than the drive

Ya'll take care.

Great slogan idea! Unless I screw up on the Zazzle site, the T-shirt link should remain in my signature for all to use.

Have a great trip! And don't worry about the trip report. I'm sure some of the guys around here will help you out.

We always seem to lose one or two out of the 150 or so that we hide each year, but we use the plastic eggs and fill with candy or money. Dad always makes sure that all of the money ones are found!

HAPPY EASTER DADS!

This reminds me of when I was ~8 and we couldn’t find one egg...not a plastic egg, but real egg. Mom knew how many there were, but couldn't recall where they were all at...well, we found it later, "What's that awful smell"

Happy Easter Everyone!

DUCT TAPE!

With DW and I, we looked at each other for about 2 seconds, then bought in.

We will be dealing with the high school schedules next year, so we had to determine which would be the best to do, and that's the one we came up with. He'll only miss a couple of days that way. Going to burn some extra points on it - not really the "best use" as many would argue, but hey, we'll be cruising on the new DREAM for just under $20 per person to cover the $95 tradeout fee, so I'm not opposed to it at all. Perhaps you'll reconsider and be able to after all - if not, bummer, but maybe another time.
But he keeps them nice and warm for you!
It was really a joint decision to put it off until at least 2012. The 9/1 sailing would be perfect in theory, as Wisconsin has a law that says schools can't start until after labor day. (It's a tourism industry thing. So many teenagers work in the hospitalty business that business owners get very short staffed if they have to go back to school and can't work that last weekend of summer) Anyway, there are so many loopholes to that law the most school districts start before labor day anyway. We don't want Madison to miss the first week of first grade. We plan on using DVC points too, but we're borrowing a bunch from 2011 for our December stay, so waiting a year or so should allow us to get a better cabin too.

That's cool. I assume she used your real name, though. I'm pretty sure if a kid called me that, I would have punched her!

Welcome! Speaking of "outstanding"...
My father was a farmer up here in Wisconsin until the day that he died. He loved to say he was one of the best farmers in the county - he was "out standing in his field."

Welcome! We have another member just north of Toronto, DisneyDaddy-O. He just opened a restaurant, so he's not around here as often as he would wants, but I'm sure he'll be thrilled to see another DisDad north of the border!

Hey guys. Happy Easter to everyone celebrating it today.

I am in our minivan on the way back from my parents' place on a beautiful spring day, with my DDs in the back watching Sleeping Beauty. I am thinking about how, next month, we will find ourselves in the same spots, but headed due south on I95. Destination: Disney.

I wish we could make a couple of right turns right now...
