We did a regular podcast this week. The ABD show was in lieu of the email show.

The details were not discussed for a couple of reasons.

ABD likes to provide Magical Moments for their guests...those little unexpected "plusses" that make a guest say "wow". There were a couple on our trip and as the person who planned the trip...I was thrilled to be surprised.

The Magical Moments provided for our trip might not possible for each and every trip and telling listeners all of the special little touches that were added for us, might disappoint someone down the road who is waiting and expecting the exact same details.

As for the reason for doing an ABD show......we were very excited to talk about our trip, we did a Dis Board show last week and finally, emails were light this week.

There are only so many ways to discuss things you can do to make someone's birthday, anniversary, bar mitzvah, graduation, wedding etc "EXTRA" special at Disney World.

Hope that helps.

I hope by now you've found the other podcast from this week, since the ABD one frustrated you.

If you want details from the trip and don't plan to take it in the future, several of us wrote or are writing trip reports. You can check mine out in the link in my signature. There are pictures too!

Jennifer....I just had to tell you, your trip report was AWESOME!
You should be a travel writer or something. It was really well written and fun to read.
I laughed, I cried, I felt like I was on the trip with you.

And I LOVED the podcast about the ABD trip. I've listened to it twice already. I totally understand why they left some things out, but being the "I can't wait until I actually go myself" kinda person that I am I knew I could come and read trip reports for more details.

Off to read Dodie's trip report.

I just wanted to let you know that my Dad passed away this weekend. It was time and he was ready, and I know he is in a better place now. Of course, I wasn't ready, but I have to be content to know his spirit is young and free again. I went for a walk in the woods yesterday and could feel him in every tree and flower and the kiss of the wind.

Thank you all for your kind and loving support and prayers. You brought comfort to a tough time and I can't even express how much it meant to me.

We're never ready for it, but the peace of knowing that my Dad isn't suffering anymore is getting me by.

Heather -

Dino and I are so sorry to hear that your dad has passed away.

No matter how well "prepared" we are, we are never "prepared" for it...

I'm glad you could find some comfort during your walk. There are special places I can go to and feel my dad's presence - I may not see him with my eyes any longer, but I can see him with my heart forever.

Can someone please help me in regards to the Disney PhotoPass CD? Are there any other options for borders besides the ONE Backstage Magic in a blue circle emblem?????

If so, please help me in finding the additional borders for our ABD pics. Thanks!

Jennifer
