We really enjoy the Honey I Shrunk the Kids Playground...but that's because we have a 2 year old!

We always like to wander the Streets and take random pictures and look for details we have missed in the past.

We have yet to do the Backlot Tour, so that is on the list again for this trip...even though I have heard many, many times it's completely lame.

Sorry to hijack...but I just wanted to say hi, Brooke. I've missed seeing you around on the DIS.

I love the Animation Academy. I did that for the first time last year, twice. And as cheesey as it is, I love the Great Movie Ride!

You are too sweet! Thank you!!!! It's wonderful to be back! I missed everyone around here and missed keeping up to date on Disney happenings. So many announcements were made in the few months I was away! I noticed about a week ago that you are headed back to your "home" at CSR, I was happy to see it knowing you guys had a hard time squeezing in a trip last year. I didn't think I would have a ticker this year due to moving/finances, I'm blessed that we are able to swing one!

Great plans for DHS. It's hard not to go there in the morning with those 3 big attractions. I'd have to say my favorite overlooked attraction is One Man's Dream. It's so neat to see all the displays and then in April we saw the movie they have in there which was cool too.
I haven't seen One Man's Dream in ages!

We'd be total creepers if we were at the playground

I think I can do the spiel for the Great Movie Ride better than some of the CMs...I have the entire thing memorized!

Yes, we are managing a trip this year for four days before going to Marco (I have a PTR in my siggy). Mark is having surgery next Wednesday but the doctor says he should be fine to go.

My Nana has been giving me pictures everytime I visit lately. I've had this one for a few months, but just noticed today that it has the Boardwalk in the background being built! This is from '96 (I think!)



Also...don't you love our sweet fanny packs!

Naw, just be silly and act like big kids! Though, I have to say, some of those areas are LITTLE. Henry has gone up to the top only to decide he did not want to come down by himself more than once.

I think One Man's Dream is a better choice.

We are trying to stay at the Boardwalk...so far 3 days out of our trip are secured. I've been so busy with my Mom visiting this week I haven't been on the phone bugging Member Services about the other days, or seeing what else might be open. Hopefully we will get Boardwalk, it's where Joe has wanted to stay since our Disney obsession began!

That is so great! I hope Mark's recovery goes smoothly. I have your PTR now open and will get caught up ASAP!

Love it! Rock those fanny packs!! Before the Boardwalk was there, was it just an open grassy field across the lake?

I would totally rock the playground. My boyfriend would pretend like he doesn't know me

Take lots of pictures of the Boardwalk!!! I'll live vicariously.

I have no idea what was there before the Boardwalk. I was 11 in that photo (I'm the one with the pink shorts-also hot I might add.) I did a double take when I was looking through them and was surprised to see that the Boardwalk hadn't been built yet. We stayed at Port Orleans that trip...my cousins & their parents stayed at Dixie Landings!! It began my obsession with POFQ...loved that resort!
