Hi guys! Glad to have everyone here - the regulars, the semi-regulars, and the we're gonna make you regulars eventually.



*******************************

I have to start out with some silliness, of course.
Another star of our trip was supposed to be the loyal sidekick to Ariel and Flounder...this guy!



As you can see, as he was hanging out with me at school, he was very excited about the trip.

He bragged to some of his sea buddies.



Well, our dear sweet Brooklynn was playing with Sebastian in my classroom, and on the way to the airport, I realized the terrible, awful, no good truth...

Sebastian had been left behind!

You can't imagine how bad I felt for the little guy, even if he is just plastic. He was going to hang out at MNSSHP with Ariel and Flounder and perhaps do a little commentary, but it was not to be. He was stuck in that cold, dark, lonely classroom for the entire fall break.

You can imagine the look I got from him when I returned to school.

Random picture of a couple of Halloween outfits I had bought the girls. I had gotten them when my co-teacher and I went out shopping at lunch, since we had no kids that day.



Anyway, we traveled on and soon found ourselves checked in and awaiting our flight at the Nashville Airport.

Fun at the airport.







Yes, Bella is asleep.



On the plane, Brooklynn gives Bella a choke hold,



then settles in to watch Bolt.





After an uneventful flight, we arrived at MCO and were greeted by our first sign of Disney Halloween happiness.



Brooklynn did not notice.



We boarded Magical Express,



and soon found ourselves at what Brooklynn had dubbed French Porter.

There was entertainment as we arrived.



We got a fantabulous room! It was on the corner, ground floor, in the building right next to the main area. We think it stemmed from Jill pleading her case of having two babies and a crippled woman just coming off knee surgery.

Our room.



We had gotten some food, because we were hungry, but we didn't eat it all, as usual.





A couple more room pictures.





Mardi Gras beads given to us at check-in.



Cool cups.



Time for night-night! This is Brooklynn showing off the earplugs Jill claims she has to have to sleep in a room with me.



It was a little after 11:00 when we turned in.


The next morning, it was time to be up to greet the sun.



Okay, no sun yet.

I'll walk around where there is light.











The pool Brooklynn would fall in love with.



Lobby sitting area.



Time for normal people to get up.



Bella's first Mickey waffle.



All my sweet girls in front of our room, ready to start this glorious Disney day!

So glad that you found the pictures. I am super excited that you only have 16 days until your next trip. Looking forward to this TR since it is the one where I got to meet you, Jill, and your precious babies for a few short minutes. I was hoping to be able to meet you guys in Atlanta but it is not looking like I will be able to make it.

Found 'em and are going to fly through some parts, but while I have the time this evening, I'm going to put up as many as I can to start.


*******************************


First stop, Magic Kingdom.





Cinderella Castle.



Jill and the girls went to get on Dumbo, and after a minute, I heard my name being called.

Only it wasn't my MeMom name, it was my teacher name.

I probably shuddered for a moment, but then I realized it was a family from school whom I had helped make plans for this trip.



One of my instructions was to make it to rope drop and go straight to Dumbo. They had taken my advice, and they were thrilled beyond belief to see this empty Fantasyland and walk-on Dumbo ride.



They were used to long waits on the couple of other trips they had made. This trip was going to be waaay different for them. The mom had notes, and she followed them.

My girlie girls.



We went to Peter Pan next with the school family following close behind.
I didn't take pictures.

We had been texting Katie and Patrick, and we met up with them as they exited Haunted Mansion.





Hi, Katie and Patrick!



Such nice young people, and Patrick's mom was so nice, too.

Castle walls will be everywhere with this new expansion. I can't wait to see what it will be like when it is finished.



I knew I better get a few of these pictures before they no longer existed.



You know Brooklynn loves her Space Ranger Spin, so we went past Alice,



and on to Buzz.

Poor Sebastian got left behind.
I spied some things I recognize in those Sebastian pictures: a place value chart, months of the year, and were those Disney popcorn buckets??

So far French Porter looks nice. Those large things in the food court hanging down kinda freak me out a little bit. I'll have to go see them in person to put it in perspective!

Can't wait for more!

Great start! Too bad our crab friend couldn't make it along but it looks like he was having fun hanging out in your classroom. I love POFQ, so pretty! Such a different morning walk then POP. The girls are too cute.
O.K, it's now official thanks to your pictures. I need to go to Disney halloween weekend. Sunday is halloween, the girls and I have a half day the Thursday before and the next day is no school. I might O.K I will go check rates for that weekend after this.
I bet the family's disney trips will be much more successful now.
