Hi Carissa! Glad you're here.

We had nice weather for the most part. That Friday/Saturday was sunny and warm---Rained on Sunday---Cooler on Monday and Tuesday, and then warmed back up to almost 80 on Wednesday. Of course, I came home to rain and temps with the highs in the low-mid 50s. WHAT??? I thought it was spring time! :

EWW!!!!! About the seafood for breakfast! I would have had to leave the room. I can't STAND the smell of seafood. We very rarely eat at Red Lobster or any other seafood place because I just can't stomach the smell.

It sounds like you had a productive afternoon at the MK! I wouldn't have waited in that line for IASW. I would be glad to never ride it again. But I love Dinosaur!

I can't wait for more!
Thanks, Julia! I had seen a picture of the balloons are MeMom's TR, and I thought hers was so pretty. I'm afraid mine didn't turn out nearly as well, but I'll just practice more during my May trip!

I love some fresh seafood, but I only eat it at the beach, when I know it was caught just that day. But definitely never for breakfast!

Glad you're here, Courtney!

I guess we were tired, but it's one of those times you don't realize how tired you are until you lie down---then it hits you! It was ok......Eventually we got to sleep........................

And I don't know how I didn't realize you were an Alabama fan too...I posted this on Becky's PTR because I thought she'd appreciate it. I just got this email from the Disney Store and they now have collegiate t-shirts! Sadly they don't have Michigan (where my dad went to law school). Thought you might like this!

I love that Dinosaur picture, too!

Oh, yes, Sarah, We are big 'Bama fans at our house. I love that Mickey/Bama shirt. I'm going to have to order one of those, and probably that kid's shirt for Reid. It was too cute. Thanks for that link!

Of course I don't mind! I'm honored for you to be reading along. I've read a lot of your posts before, as well.

I know what a fan of CSR you are, and might I just add how awesome those new rooms look! We stayed there back in 2003 (during one of the first buy4/get 3 free deals). Of course the rooms weren't renovated then, but I remember how pretty the resort was with all the landscaping. Now I would love to stay there again---queen beds

This is actully my second trip during spring break. Back in March 2007, my family went, but there was still three weeks until Easter. This trip was a lot more crowded, probably because we were so much closer to Easter.

Of course, nothing compares to New Year's Eve. We were there this past December, and that was the MOST CROWDED time I've ever been at Disney!

Your fireworks pictures are stunning! Remind me of what camera you have (did you just get a new one? Everyones PTR's are blurring together in my mind )

Hoping the drama is short lived!
Thanks, Katie! I completely understand how all our PTRs and TRs begin to run together. I feel like I need to make a cheat sheet to keep up with when I'm posting!

I did get a new camera back in Feb. It's a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm loving it!

Thank you for the welcome. I think you would really like the new decor of the rooms -- it is very nice.

Your daughters are beautiful.

Thank you, Kathy!

From the pictures I've seen of the decor, the rooms look beautiful. I really like the sliding doors that separate the vanity area from the beds. I actually went as far to price out two separate rooms (we have five in our family), just to compare it to the Beach Club, for our May trip. The two bathrooms would be wonderful, with two teenaged daughters!

Hi! Thanks for stopping in on my current TR.

I noticed from your ticker that you'll be in Disney World just a few days after we arrive on May 22. I also have a 7 year old son. Well, actually he's my nephew, but has lived with us for about 3 1/2 years, calls me mom and my husband, dad, so he's practically like a son!

Saturday, 3/20--EPCOT

Well, I left you ready for bed on that Friday evening. Everyone was so tired from traveling on most the day on Thursday, half the day on Friday, and then a full evening at MK. We got in the bed, but a little girl named Meg had different ideas. She began to cry as soon as we all got in the bed, “I wanna hose you, Mommy.” If she said it once, she said it a hundred times! The funny thing was that my sister was in the same bed with her, right beside her! I will just go ahead and tell you that we went through this same process every night at bed time (with the exception of maybe one) ! Once, during this crying time, my sister asked Meg if she wanted her to give her a dose of ________ (fill-in blank with an allergy medicine known to make your kids sleepy) . I piped up with, “Yes, and can I have some too?” Then my nephew, Reese, adds, “Me too!” Elizabeth, Rachel, and I just cracked up, which just made Meg cry even louder. So I had to shush them quickly!

What seemed like an hour, was probably actually just 10-15 minutes, and we were all finally getting some rest.

The next morning was Saturday, March 20. This was the day my daughters’ band group would be playing in DHS. They weren’t scheduled to play until 4:10 p.m., so I thought we probably had plenty of time to play around that morning. We planned to go to EPCOT at the 9 o’clock opening and hit up the big rides, TT and Soarin’. Well, my big girls could not get themselves up and moving….AND when they finally did, they had to spend 30 minutes flat ironing that hair and putting on make-up! I was patting my foot at the door, impatiently!

Finally we headed out the door for the bus stop around 9:15. Now unfortunately, we had some rotten bus luck this morning. Six busses came by during the next 15-20 minutes, but not one was for EPCOT! Two for each park came, but not one for us! I finally went over to the transpo guy standing there with his clipboard (and of course, I’m thinking he’s not doing such a great job). I asked him when we might be getting an EPCOT bus, since we’ve had six for the other parks. He told me something about a problem (UH…YEAH! ), and that one should be there shortly. Within 5 minutes, one came and I was determined that we were getting on that bus!

Here’s a pic of Rachel and Meg on the bus that morning. Just our first full day, and already, they look tired!



By the time we caught a bus, rode to EPCOT, got through security (and BTW, I hate the bag check line at EP more than any other park---It seems so inefficient!), went through the ticket gates, it was well after 10 a.m. The stand-by lines for the big rides were already 45-60 minutes, so we grabbed a FP for Soarin’ and decided to see a little orange fish friend.



It was a 5 minute stand-by, practically walk-on, so we headed in for a ride in our clam-shell.

As we were riding, I had a text from the girls’ band director that they would be at their hotel in Celebration to change into uniforms at 12 and that I could meet them there then. It was already 10:30. So as soon as we finished Nemo, I had to leave with the girls to get back to POR, pick up band dresses, drive over to the Celebration hotel, and get them delivered to their group. My sister, Kelly, decided to stay in the park with Reese and Meg and do a few other things.

Of course, all the way to the park exit, I told the girls (several times, probably) that if they’d woken up earlier and gotten ready more quickly, then we could have gotten to the park earlier and gotten some more things done. I think they probably shut me out after the tenth time I said it!

Up Next------Festival Disney

They do look tired--already! And I definitely think you need two bathrooms with those girls from now on.

Looking forward to hearing about the band performance.

Hooray an update! That Meg looks so cute and pitiful in the picture. Great picture for memories.

I didn't know the bag check lines were bad at Epcot. We didn't use them on our last trip b/c we always went in the back gate and never had a problem (or lines) with bag check there. I am glad you mentioned it so I can keep it in mind for our next trip.

Sorry you didn't get to do much at Epcot that morning. I hope Meg and Reese got to have fun when they stayed.

I can't wait for more!

Hey Michelle . Love the update . I think that particular ummmmmmm allergy medicine is great. I take it when I don't want to take my sleeping pill.

You sound like me, fussing about the girls not getting up. I CAN'T stand to be late for anything.
