My aunt brought over the Easter Mickey's...she is the most Disney obsessed person in my family! It was so cute because her grandson wore Mickey's bunny costume for a few minutes!

I don't really have any updates. I'm really excited because my best friend from high school will be in town tomorrow and we are having lunch. I haven't seen her in over ten years because we lost touch when she went away for college and then moved to Seattle! Thanks to facebook we found each other and finally get to reunite!

Here's a quick recap of our schedule while we are in WDW (only three more weeks!!! woooo-hoooooo!!!):

WED 4/28: Check-in POR, EPCOT
THU 4/29: AK day/MK evening (Wishes & Spectro)
FRI 4/30: MK (BBB afternoon) & 1900 Park Fare dinner (EPCOT EMH?)
SAT 5/1: MK/Downtown Disney
SUN 5/2: DHS (MK EMH?)
MON 5/3: Check-out POR, Kona Cafe breakfast, Park Hopping

Let me know if you're going to be in the same park on the same day so I can keep an eye out for you!

Jen,
I'm so happy for you to meet up with an old friend. That is always so much fun. My BF from grade school lives in FL now. Last year she met us for a day at AK and stayed the night with us. I was hoping she would be able to join us again but not in the cards this year Have a great time!
as you know we should both be in Epcot on the 28th!

We will definitely look for you at Epcot! Alicia (Peter Pan Fan 22) will be there also! Maybe we can all watch Illuminations together!

LOVE all the Easter pics Jen!! Jilly is so adorable and the family Easter picture turned out great!! All the shirts look awesome and all the goodies Jilly got are great!! It's so fun to buy those things for the kids, I can't wait until Helen gets a bit older and can really enjoy some of those things!! It looks like we may only overlap on Thursday and Friday, those days we will be doing a lot of park hopping so our paths may cross one of the those days!!!

Awww thanks! It is definitely lots of fun shopping for girls! While I was at work tonight I picked up some Princess lip glosses with a little carrying case. It's so addicting!

I was doing a bit of research and stumbled upon this:
after a little research I found this about locations for Illuminations:
Best Places to Watch Illuminations
1. UK-Canada Trail - A good spot to watch "Illuminations" is near the United Kingdom. As you're leaving the United Kingdom and entering Canada, there is a trail that leads off to the side. There are trees to sit under if you prefer. It is a little-known path with little to no crowd
2. Sushi Bar - The Japanese restaurant is one of the best places to eat in the whole of Disney. If you go to the sushi bar side of it before the fireworks show starts, you can watch the whole thing right out the window while you eat delicious, relatively cheap sushi.
3. CM Entrance - Between Norway and China there is a cast member entrance set back a ways from the walkway. You can step back into this area, get out of the way of the traffic and have a virtually unobstructed view of the lagoon and the sky.
4. Norway - In front of the Norway, good view, all facilities within easy reach (Kringla Bakeri, restrooms, water fountain).
5. France - Get there about 1/2 an hour early. There are iron bistro type tables and chairs right by the water. Head to the bakery - which is usually dead late at night. Grab some snacks (the cheese plate w/ bread, chocolate crepe, GM slushes)
6. Mexico - Cantina de San Angel, grab a churro and a water side table

I like what she says in #1 and 3
what do you guys think...I'm thinking if we catch Spectro and Wishes Sunday we do not need to do it again Wed. I will PM you both my cell and if you guys want to try to meet up
Posted it on Alicia's thread, too

That sounds like it could work! I'll save your number in my cell! Thanks for the tips! PS...I will not be eating sushi...

I have been trying to get my scanner to work, but apparently I am not intelligent enough...

So here's one picture from my first trip to Disney...



If DH can get my scanner working when he comes home from work, I'll try to post a couple more pics from that trip, along with a bunch from our last trip (our Honeymoon!).
