Do I spy a not-so-hidden MeMom in one of those pictures????

That was sweet of the CM to bring Bella some socks. Brooklynn looks so enthralled with the castle show... I can't wait until I finally get to experience Disney through the eyes of a child!

I had no idea they changed out the statues for fall! I love that! So cute! I need to go back and check my pictures and see if they had something special up for Christmas. I don't think they did though.

This TR is going faster than the real thing

Wow how did I not know this started?!

You guys are moving so fast!

So cute seeing Bella's first Mickey waffle

Very cool (I hope) for seeing the kid from school and his family! I love helping people plan trips to WDW, even though they usually think I'm crazy

Love all the Halloween stuff up...I hope one day I'm able to get there for the October festivities!

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

I love DIS meets. So cool!

Aw, I love the pics of Brookie and Bella watching the show. I cannot wait to watch the little guy's reaction to everything.

Loved seeing you in a pic, MeMom!

This jump-started TR is so fabulous!
I have to tell you, this has been such a hectic winter at school that I have not had the time to get very excited about our upcoming trip... BUT NO MORE!
I am actually getting more and more excited about it with every post on this thread! Keep 'em coming!

You will love them in person. Main Street looks so cool dressed up in orange and gold, and the window displays are fun.

It is a very peaceful atmosphere, and it was immaculately clean everywhere. There wasn't one piece of trash anywhere in the 'streets'. One thing I iked about it as opposed to Pop is that it had a ceiling fan, and I am used to sleeping with a ceiling fan.

You will not regret an October trip.

I hope to live at home until the end.
I just need a tiny space, as long as it has plenty of windows to open, I'm not high maintenance, and I will help with cooking, childcare, and housework. I hope one of my kids will take me in.

I am really having a hard time picking where we will be staying in October. I thought of staying at POFQ because it's smaller than POP, less people fighting for the buses, Boat to DTD, 2 sinks and frig are all pros. But, not as many choices in the food dept. and no POP jets for Ty also I just learned the the beds are not any bigger than the POP beds and it cost more to stay there.

Ty wiil be the only child in our crew and he will be 18 months old. I just really feel like he will love the Pop jets and the kiddie pool. I don't know.....I'm so torn. What to do??????

Also, we will be in the parks Oct.2 -8 I need advice what day to do what park. I do like rope drop to beat the crowds. Do you guys do EMH? I not sure about EMH. MeMom and Jill or anyone give me advice....please.
The girls do pretty well. Jill has the traveling needs and procedures down to a science. In all of the trips, there have only been two upheavals - one was when Brooklynn had a meltdown with John on an ME bus. Jill and I were sitting in other places, and we pretended not to know them! The other was when Brooklynn got sick on the way home from a trip. Poor baby threw up about four times, and we had to stop and change clothes and clean things off. Other than those two things, everything else has just been minor whining, spills, kid stuff...

We definitely do morning EMH. You can get a day's worth of stuff done by lunh time and go back to the room for lots of swimming and down time.

I will say that the kiddie pool at Pop is the best we have seen so far. It's gradual entry, so they don't have to climb down into it - just walk bak and forth. There is plenty of seating, only one exit, and it is separated from the big pool. If you're weighing heavily on kiddie pools, I'd go with Pop. If you're going on lushness of resort, POFQ has Pop beat, and the boats to DTD are nice, as opposed to buses. You just have to weigh the pros and cons.

I'm am so excited that you are doing the October trip. I LOVE FALL!!! It is my favorite time of year. The colors are gorgeous, the air is crisp and refreshing, and who doesn't love pumpkins and scarecrows everywhere! I am loving the decorations and that Mickey pumpkin candy bucket is too cute! I can't wait to see all the cute fall stuff in your pictures and I am very happy to see more of French Porter. That is one of the resorts that I would really like to stay at (and one that I might actually have a real chance at one day since it isn't super expensive). I'm really excited about reading this report!

This is but DD had her Snow White kindergarten play tonight and it was the most precious thing ever. I thought about all my DIS friends while I was watching it. DD did a great job and remembered all her lines as the mirror. It was great! I may post a few pictures over on my report if there is anyone still lingering around over there.
I'm with you on fall. It is my favorite time of year. A Tennessee autumn would be one thing I would really miss if I were to move south.

If you get a code, POFQ could be very affordable.

I will check out those pictures today! I know that was a fun evening!

Once in a blue moon I get in a picture, but I still despise it. I have never taken a good picture in my entire life.

It is fun to watch Brooklynn watch anything. Her facial expressions tell you everything that is going on in the show. She can sing along with the entire thing, too. She also knows every word to the Nemo musical. She's a trip.

I don't think they are changed for Christmas, but it's neat that they are different for fall.

This will have to be so speedy if we are going to get it in before we leave. No telling what all we might do in tonight's installment.

I will reiterate, I hate pictures of myself.

She (the mom) had her notes with her. I thought it was cute.

You would enjoy MNSSHP, Kristen!

Brooklynn takes care of her sister, for sure. Often Bella doesn't want to be taken care of, of course.

The plan is May, July, and October for sure. Depending on what is going on with Trent, possibly Thanksgiving - maybe a different type of trip, doing some other things and fixing dinner at his place? - and then him coming here sometime during December for us to do Christmas. After that, I am looking forward to our friend, Kay, being able to join us for a spring break trip next March.

Before the parade starts, I just wanted to put in one more of my favorite angles of the Walt and Mickey statue. I think I showed this before, but I just think it is sweet.



Now, let's get our celebrating and shaking going on to start this fine April morning!







Our little dancer girl watches in anticipation.















And, of course, I had to get a close up of....



Ever felt guilty during a Disney parade???











Again, my great girls!
