Aww, glad your Dismeet was fun! Can't wait to see what Chris actually loves in the World Showcase!

True and I got it in time for a 3 1/2 hour trip each way to New Hampshire this weekend so it made the trip much more pleasant!

Definitely want to try La Cava next month.

It sounds like you had a great Dis meet and meal at San Angel! I've read less then stellar reviews of San Angel as well and I'm glad you liked it!

I can't wait to hear about what your DH actually liked!

Love a DISMeet!!! And how very fun to have one on your birthday! The food at SanAngel looks delicious. I think if/when we try it, we'll be on the "fan" list as well, we LOVE Mexican, and prefer real Mexican versus tex-mex.

catching up on the amazing updates. I'm excited that my son too will be tall enough to ride Soarin and Test Track for first time. What is the golf ball in Soarin?

Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo, sounds just right. It sounds like you had a fun dis meet even if you had to go back and forth.

We're fans of San Angel too! Haven't tried the enchiladas before, but they look great!

BTW, hope you don't mind...but I might steal the stealthy golf ball move! I just bought a Mickey golf ball on eBay!

I'm really late to the party, but I'm all caught up and am LOVING your TR!

I'm so envious of your long Disney trip (I've only ever gone for a week). Even when your DH doesn't cooperate with your plans, it seems like you still have plenty of time to see everything.

Can't wait to hear how you enjoyed the rest of your birthday!

Looks like it was a fun Dismeet even with the running back and forth. I really think you have one of the only good reviews I've read of San Angelo...we've never tried it since we've never heard anything good.

Hello and greetings from Montreal!
Just signed up and read the whole thing in one sitting.

Have to say you are very patient with your husband. My husband is mildly resistant also but leaving the park after only a couple of hours was unheard of to me.

I a glad to see you kept a positive attitude and you guys shared great memories anyways. If you ask me, I think spending time by the pol in a deluxe hotel is a wonderful alternative to the crowded parks.

I love the pictures at the Boardwalk. Beautiful family.

Cannot wait to read more.

Hi Trish, I was insanely behind so I'm going back a few updates here!

I totally get how much you love Philharmagic, I love it too - watching all the little kids trying to grab stuff out of the air is one of my favorite parts of the attraction

Good for you standing ground and making sure you got to see Wishes! We had Tink fly right over us during the dessert party too - that was pretty cool. I admit, I giggled when I read about your slooooooow walk out of the park after the fireworks - I could just picture the irritated face and grumbles coming from Chris

I love the picture of Katie pushing the stroller and trying to click her heels as she walked - such a great pic!

Yay Declan for getting to ride all the thrill rides! That must have been awesome to get to experience them all together.

I didn't know it was your birthday during our meet! Shame on you for not letting us know!

I've been very afraid to try San Angel Inn due to the awful reviews it gets on these boards but I've read several really positive ones lately so maybe we'll give it a try - if I ever get back that is......

I loved your Cinco de Mayo meet. I wanted so much to be there, but I was banned from drinking due to a medication I was taking. So I avoided the meet altogether because I am not good at just saying NO to alcohol. You posted some great pictures of a lot of familiar faces. Looks like so much fun!
