Yeah, we sweated it a little bit, but we found them pretty easily once we had time to stop and get the hard drive set up.

I did amazingly well at following Jill's perfect instructions.

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.
We did meet, you very real and not imaginary person, you!
So sorry you can't come to Atlanta. Maybe they will bring more shows there in the future and it will work for you next time.

Brooklynn loved that slide. We only went to it twice, I think, but she was just saying the other day that she wanted to go back to the dragon slide this trip.


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


Lots of merchandise pictures to end tonight.
Enjoy your evening of shopping.















Halloween goodies.




















Jill says I don't have time to put up all these merchandise pictures on this rapid report, so I would appreciate if you guys would hide your shopping bags.

Tomorrow: We meet Poolrat.

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!
Definitely Disney popcorn buckets. I actually got those at one of thos outlet deals that they set up very temporarily. They are perfect for holding pencils, scissors, and crayons.

I agree about some of the hanging things - a little different, but it's supposed to be a float warehouse, so that is how it is themed.

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.
Have you ever been for any of the Halloween parties? We love them! The parade is awesome, and the characters dressed up are so neat. It's fun to see the guests' costumes, too.

I am hoping that after seeing some of these pictures, Jill will give me the green light to book our October trip.

Holy cow you are really moving this along. No hitch in your giddy up.

I was scrolling down and saw the shopping pictures and was thinking I know what happens next, I know what happens next.

It was chilly that morning. We had that cold snap come through and try to freeze us.

I love the pictures of POFQ!! I really want to stay there someday. The Halloween pictures are so awesome. Fall is my favorite season and I love Halloween! My 2yo DS was looking over my shoulder while I was looking at your pictures. He saw Brooklyn with Zurg and said "Wook Mommy, Zug". He also said his favorite line from the movie, "Not today Zug". I had to put it closer to how he says it since it is cuter that way. Keep it coming. It will help pass the time until WDW in 14 days!!!!

We've been at Halloween back when we lived in Orlando, but that was before I cared about all the little details. I've never been overnight in October and I've never been to MNSSHP. I read last year that people were disappointed in MNSSHP and said it wasn't worth the money. What are your thoughts? If we go in October, we'll just do Epcot and MK. I think it would be cute if Amy and Emily went as the Madd Hater and Alice. What do you think Brookie and Bella will go as this year?
Come on Jill...... cute halloween cups, giant Mickey shaped pumpkins, Food and wine, nice weather. ADR day is approaching for Oct.

It is a pretty resort. I just always think 'quaint' when I think of it.

Well, for tonight my giddy up has been unhitched. Don't know if I can keep up this pace, but I'll do my best. There may be things we have to rush through during some parts, but I don't mind going right up to the night we leave. We've done it before.

You are in the next batch of pictures!

I can definitely see us staying there more in the future. It was very nice.
I know we couldn't get that lucky on a room location again, but it was great for our first stay.

I'm not a big Halloween person - never have been - but the Halloween decorations in Disney World make me like it a lot better.

I can hear your son saying 'Zug', because our little cousin says Buzz sort of like Booze. Toddler speak is cute.

We enjoy it. We love the parade, the characters, the shopping, the candy trail, seeing the costumes of families. It is a little expensive, I will agree. It would be better at maybe ten dollars less. But, it's a once a year or two thing, so we went for it. There's a possibility if we do go this year that we might not do the party, but we would like to get in line for the big Snow White and Seven Dwarfs picture one of these days.

Hey MeMom- SLOW DOWN! I'm slow catching up!

Poor Sebastian! I'm sure he quickly forgave you though.

You know I haven't stayed at POR before, so it is neat to see pics from there.

Love the pic of Bella's first Mickey waffle.

I just love the MK opening show.

That's so cool you ran into people from home. I mean, what are the odds of ALL of WDW..you were both in the same spot at the same moment.

I have 1,239 pictures, and 16 days. I've already skipped several. I may have to run quickly through a lot of stuff, but at least we're off to a normal start.

You will see in the report that I tried to take pictures for Sebastian along the way.

The mom of the family had asked me dozens of questions before their trip. She told me over and over after the trip that they were amazed at how much they got done. It made me feel good to know their trip was better. They have five kids - four boys and a girl, and they don't get to go too often, so I was happy to help them maximize their time.

One of the reason I would like to stay at French Porter this Sept. is for that quaint feeling. I stopped by to get those coveted beignets on Wed of that trip, but I fell in love fast.

I also like playing hide and seek with you in MK.


I has fun watching these sisters.

I am here. Poor Sebastian he gets all excited for his trip then gets left behind at school too, none the less. This little report will help the time go faster until your short little trip.
